I’m half way to level 39 and still enjoying every single moment of Rift! I can say with absolute certainty, that unless a personal or technical catastrophe happens which prevents me from playing any game at all, I will reach max level in Rift and continue on to raiding. I’m sold. I’m done and in for the long haul.
I found a new love. I recently started questing in Droughtlands and exploring Lantern hook. I was having a good time and enjoyed investigating the area's nooks and crannies. That was until I went to Moonshade Highlands to heal two guild-mates during a couple of elite quests. OMG - I’m unconditionally, irrevocably and unequivocally in love with this zone. It reminds me of fantasy meets the springtime Japanese gardens in the Chicago Botanical Garden. I’m going to quest here for a while then head back to DL which provides some overlap in questing levels.
Riding around MH I feel young again, in terms of gaming. I feel like a new player fresh off the MMO arrival boat astonished by everything I see. I’m inspired to visit every spot – not wanting to miss a morsel. I still don’t do all the quests before leveling out of a zone. I mix the quests with rifts, instances and make my own adventure (slaughter runs against all things I perceive as evil). *Laugh*
