    Default Hi, I'm new.

    And I have no idea where to start aside obviously than questing, grinding, and leveling my skills.

    I've already studied builds for my Warrior, I'm running a Paragon|Champion|Riftblade

    However this is my first MMO and things like guilds, raids, groups/partying, all seem foreign to me.

    Tips, anyone?

    Knowing the MMO vocabulary (acronyms) can be helpful. Here is a page on Horriftic intentions.

    Learning to chat effectively is also important in groups. i.e. in your chat box type /g to switch to guild, /p to switch to party (including your group in a raid), /ra to switch to raid, /say to talk to anyone in a limited radius. Right-clicking your portrait will give you grouping options. Open the raid panel with "y", and you can do some things in there, especially if you're the leader. Click the welcome link at the top of the thread list in this forum to access other newbie materials.

    If you want to know about something while ingame, just ask. While there are always going to be one or two "unhelpful" people out there (and it's the same in any group in RL) most players will help you with good answers or let you know the best place to find what you're looking for.

    That said, also check out the stickied thread at the top of this forum section. There is a lot of good information there, too.

    Welcome to Rift! Enjoy!

    Try it all and do what you like. You like to craft? Craft. You like dungeons? Go to it. Try some PvP.

    Leave no stone unturned. Don't like sonething don't do it. there is enough content to keep you busy.
