So to start...I'm a Ninja, stealther, move-in-the-shadows kind of dood. I don't really enjoy any other style of gameplay.
My new PC is getting shipped to my house on the 26th, and I am going to give Rift a try. I haven't played a new MMO in a very long time, mostly due to my current (And incapable) PC. Rift looks interesting. With that said, I did some research and there are two classes that pike my curiosity. Assassin and Nightblade.
Assassin seems pretty generic. Stays in the shadows, stabs stuff with positional requirements, uses poisons, etc.
Nightblade has me a bit confused though. Do they like, change the element of their weapon, or actually blast magic at people from range? Both? That question probably determines if I will play it or not. If it's Stealth-esque and has ranged magical capabilities that sounds like the most fun thing ever. :|
I probably will just play until cap for fun until I can determine through research and personal experience which is more viable for PVE/PVP and go from there. I am (mostly) a PVPer, though.
Well thanks for any enlightenment!
