I’m still feeling rifteriffic about Rift: Planes of Telara. I’m no longer as excited by running around the level 1 to 25 zones but how can you be after the umpteenth time through trying out different callings and soul combinations. I know that I haven’t explored every area or quest hub within these zones and that is by design so that even the low levels will still contain some surprises. And instanced content is an absolute no-no for me in beta.
Mount up Ladies and Gent
On Friday evening I purchased my first mount. The fact that I was still running long distances on foot faded to the background after a while. Once I officially stopped taking new quests there was no need for me to be anywhere in particular, unless I felt like going. I travelled to different zones depending on what I wanted to test in the various soul mash-ups and builds I tried. The closer I got to builds that felt right for me, the more my gold stayed in my pocket. Once I had 3 plat, I raced to spend the 2.5-something needed to purchase the level 20 mount. I was a bit disappointed when I realized there wasn’t a mechanical looking mount at the low levels. *Sad face*
