    the original argument was that the original system prevented players, from off the start, of making a character with a build that they would have wanted for leveling.

    so they scrapped the quest concept, as well as the restricted soul choice from the starter area
    to allow players to level up as whatever they wanted to be.

    there was some lore in the quest description. it described the soul of the person and how he lived and died. they should make it deeper though.

    That is kinda what I meant. They could just put the soul's wall of text when you click on the class NPC (which are still in game) and basically get the same amount of trivial lore.

    For me, it's not about the trivial lore. I don't actually read much of that stuff. It's about the game experience, and the experience of buying souls is simultaneously creepy and boring. I want it to feel important that I'm getting new skill sets, and this is just silly. I'd rather just get them all in the Terminus quests than buy them at the trainer.

    Besides, they're called souls. The current system makes it seem like there are shelves full of soul jars somewhere, of heroes who apparently got their souls sucked out at some point for us to purchase later. Creepy.

    I am not denying that it is about the experience (I like lore too though). Just the original soul quests the experience was pretty boring in my opinion. They could fix it (and yes a soul chronicle would probably be an improvement regardless how long it takes to develop 32 new chronicleshttp://forums.riftgame.com/rift-gene...-solution.html). I don't think it would break the game if they had the quests back in game but I personally do not think the way the soul quests were originally in game that it added much to the experience.
