I played wow for 6 years, but found both the bgs and the raids meh in cata... had 10 85's really liked the game.
Tried many other games, EQ2, D&D online, Aion, LOTR, Eve, Lol, Warhammer, AoC, etc.
But when I played Rift it felt like the first time I played wow, totally addictive, mind racing, f'n cool!
It's not like current wow, but more like Burning Crusade, which suits me just fine - that was the best time I had in wow..... nostalgia......
Got a max level shammy/druid/justicar cleric, and a mid level necro lock.
I gotta say that library up north in the snow has more intricacy in the model then all of Org and SW put together. Awesome stuff!
Looking for to SWTOR and GW2 of course, like everyone else, but I sure hope Rift survives.
Seems like a mature game, with most players out of their tweens... as compared to.... well.... it's nice....
