    Default RIFT Preset Builds Contest - ENTER HERE!

    CONTEST: Build a Better Preset REDUX!



    Get YOUR build in the game!

    Our RIFT Soul Preset System is a fantastic way to introduce newer adventurers to our complex soul system. The current offerings are now two years old and we have NEW souls to take into account - we are desperately in need of an update!

    To ensure that our preset guides are the very best that they can be, we need the help of experienced veterans. We want to put your builds in the game, credit them to you, and offer you prizes to boot! We are especially interested in builds that feature our newest Souls, but we have 51 to choose from, so your options are almost endless!

    How do you enter?
    We've prepared a form on the next post in this thread with all the required information.
    We also have a Google spreadsheet here for those who a template in that format:
    Enter by responding to this thread with your information. You may continue to edit your entry until the contest deadline!

    Dates:
    Contest Opens: Friday, May 13, 2016, 12:00 noon PST
    Contest Ends: Friday, May 20, 2016, 10:00 AM PST


    Summary of Rules:
    • You may enter as many preset builds as you want.
    You can win multiple times, and all those builds will be placed into the game!
    • Please be sure you include a detailed gameplay guide in addition to your preset build. That guide can be hosted on the site of your choosing.
    • Builds will be evaluated for detail, quality and insights.
    The player community will vote on the preset builds for two weeks, and their input will be taken into consideration during the selection process. Trion Worlds reserves the right to refrain from choosing any submission if our quality standards are not met.
    • All preset build submissions and online guides must be original and created by the entrant. Creators of previous builds already in game may update and resubmit those builds.

    Prizes:
    • All winners will have their build(s) added to the game as a preset!
    • Winners will be able to suggest a descriptive name for the preset, subject to approval by the RIFT Development team.
    Winners will have their character's name and shard credited in the description.
    • Winners will earn a Community Snail mount, to be awarded to a single character on the account. If an entrant wins for multiple submissions, each will be awarded one snail mount!
    • Each winning submission will earn a 30 Day Patron Pass
    • Winners will receive the prefix title "Guide Writer."
    • Prizes must be accepted as awarded, and have no cash value.

    Full prize rules can be found here. In case of disagreement between this rule summary and the official prize rules linked here, the latter shall govern. [link forum post]

    Quick aside, I think it'd be nice if every support preset also linked to THIS along with all the other information the person creating the preset provides only to ensure that people using support presets are shown how their important buffs/debuffs interact with the other supports.

    Added space for masteries in case that can be done, though current presets do that already.

    I link to it in my BM guide, which I'm linking to in my preset, but I think it's a bit overwhelming if the preset links directly to the stacking info immediately.

    Beastmaster preset.
    The cockroaches won.
