The dendrome zone is full of stuff to explore, new creatures to kill, and new things to do. I'm refreshed that there is so much to do here because the patches before this were short on content. There are new reps to work towards, new rewards, and the Rift store has some cool stuff that I may have to invest in regardless of my on-going sub. There were some bad things, however, such as not getting any credit for being storm chaser edition buyer and getting none of those perks. I put in a ticket for that one, though. Also, the massive ability lag of days past is back, but was expected.
On to the good impressions. Like I said before, lots of content. Hailo is great, the zone events have impressed me because they aren't easy. The "Swarm of the Century" was down to the last 10minutes on Deepwood and it was really a never-ending swarm. I haven't gotten a chance to try out the new 10man, but I will at some point and I'm hearing good things about its difficulty for guilds who didn't test on PTS. Also didn't get to try out the Strongholds, but I will get around to it. Overall, so far so good and if they can get through my ticket and get me what I deserved I think I will be even more satisfied as a player and customer.
