    Default Telara welcomes refugees from Nexus! (for Wildstar players)

    So it was announced that Wildstar and the studio behind it (Carbine) will shut down soon and many players are looking for a new home. We'd love to welcome you in the Rift community! If you come from Wildstar and want to indroduce yourself, look for a guild/community or have any questions about the game, please don't be shy to post them here (or join us for some chat on the "Heroes of Telara" RIFT Discord server).

    Welcome in Telara!

    Anyone that was big into Housing in Wildstar will know about Rift's Dimensions, greetings to all future Dimensioneers.

    Then give them some indication that the game is worth investing their time in.

    I have been playing since RIFT 2.4. Storm Legion was the best expansion IMO to this day. Plat expenses were balanced, PvP was amazing, creating alts was fun, and best of it all for me it was Planebreaker Bastion raid where mechanics were fun. Nightmare Tide was ok but it wasn't as good as Storm Legion since PvP stats and gear were removed and made gearing alts more tedious. Raids were ok but nothing like Planebreaker Bastion. This expansion takes things an extra few steps downwards due to adding more grind, RNG on boxes and on fragments (which should have been half the price to infuse at least.) Raiding is somewhat acceptable at best, not much mechanics just unbalances (BoS and class). I don't PvP anymore because I lost interest so I don't know how that's doing.

    And therefore, Wildstar's shutdown should be taken as a warning and something to reflect upon. The way I see it, Rift is decreasing in overall quality and could eventually lead to the same fate. Rift has been losing more people than it has attracted. The most noticeable losses are their main raid testing guild which I shall not name (many know who they are), pillars of telara like Grimok, Khortish, Discordya who were really valuable, and guide writers like the guild leader of said raid testing guild, Chamberdown and Seatin who provided detail explanations to specs and raid/open world tips and tricks.

    This is my point of view and I understand that some may agree and some disagree. I do not wish to turn this into a forum war. I only felt I had to share this.
