    Also, stay tuned for an update on this from CaptainCursor and/or Tacitus, probably in this thread: http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...sts-level.html
    Here's the deal though. They've already launched this game before. They can look back at release candidate 1 and see how things were. THAT coupled with having a few QA people play through the first 3 hours of gameplay would uncover the problems players are having.

    This isn't rocket science. 2 days is plenty of time to let me know that one or more of the following is true:

    1) This server ruleset is super grindy and hard core and just not for some people
    2) A massive bug made it through QA (unlikely)
    3) Not much QA time was put into testing gameplay

    If any of the above are true, it tells me that either Trion is making a product that isn't for me (which is totally fine). Or they really screwed up. I feel like it's got to be the latter.

    Thanks,
    B

    Anyone get to hear their live stream? I saw it but am at work and couldn't listen in. Would really like to know if they addressed the xp issue or if they believe it's a non-issue.

    Xp is under review and being revised RIGHT NOW.

    Rift and invasion exp is definitely being retuned as well.

    I don't have the ETA, but can guarantee it's asap. =)

    Hi Brasse,

    Could you inquire about those of us who have already completed all the content but are blocked? Would whatever fix that gets in boost us up to the appropriate level?

    This might be equal parts reduction in XP to level and XP bump in various activities.

    What I hope doesn't happen is a modest XP buff gets slapped on quests and rifts, but people who are kinda stuck are left to grind mobs until they dig themselves out of the XP rut.

    Thanks,
    B

    You guys rock!

    In the meanwhile, I'm not really minding grinding Rifts from 15 to 20 to feel comfy entering Stonefield. But nice to know y'all are working on a fix!

    Increased Rift and Invasion exp is all we'd need. Thank you for the review and update.

    Agreed, force people to do what makes Rift special. NEVER tune quest experience. DO NOT make that mistake again.

    People are right, you can't force people to PvP but you can force them to do other PvE elements; dungeons and events.

    Rift invasions and events are temporary, therefore the perfect place to hit with an experience boost.

    Keep up the good work Trion.

    Think that quest XP does need some tuning. Kill XP is more than fine if not maybe too high (in comparison?). This makes people push towards dungeon trash farming or rift farming since i tgot boosted. Which if all fine as a side thing imo, but not as main means of leveling up.

    I've been questing in Scarlet Gorge and Ironpine Peaks. Doing most of the SG quests gave me about a lvl give or take. And same seems to be true for IPP and that is a lvl 27-35 zone. I expect to get about one level from all quests in other zones as well that i will visit, if even that much.

    That to me doesn't sound well tuned at all. Granted i prefer questing and doing some dungeons and maybe rifts on the side compared to mindles grind of dungeon trash or rifts till i drop. This reminds me a lot of IAs, but with more effort and less gains .

    Play the game. Have fun! Don't worry so much!

    I commend Trion for responding to the comments so quickly. I would caution them though, to realize, that the most vocal, normally do not represent the majority of players.

    The game is very well balanced on xp, for todays market, where it represents a small challenge. IMO.

    If you had kept up with whats going on they said prior to Prime launching Rifts and Zone Events would be a great source of XP, it wasnt, so they fixed it.

    They removed alot of quests from starter zones, and especially Guardian side is missing Carnage quests, so they are fixing that next week.

    No one ever promised Prime would be even more grindy than what Vanilla was, thats the case right now, Trion wants to bring it back to where vanilla was, if thats a problem for your so called majority, I dunno why.

    Ive leveled up both a Defiant and Guardian. In both cases I outleveled the zone before completing half the available quests. Don't ruin this experience by making it any easier then it is.

    After the XP buff by Trion, I went from level 12 to 19 (very close to 20) without much of a hiccup at all. Haven't had to do 1 single WF. Did 1 run of RoTF and one of Iron Tomb...been doing rifts like mad and I dont have to grind mobs (except for crafting). Thanks to Trion for the quick response and even faster fix. Seems to be perfect now!

    How long did you spend doing Rifts/WFs/Dungeons?
