    Oh yeah, I do think the person who does all the work should get the actual loot, but splitting up 90 silver?

    Oh heavens.

    Well if you think of it from a 20 man raid perspective, 20x XP and 20x the gold.

    All loot goes to the guy who tagged the mob originally. The guy who helps just gets some xp. I can't tell you how often someone has saved my butt by popping a dot on a mob. I love this new tagging thing - people at least help and they keep getting Planar Attunement XP after they're 60, so people will keep doing it.

    Yes, don't remember exactly how though, think it was Elrar who explained it on official forums.

    I did a quick summary / made comments video last night.

    I didn't realize how much stuff had been added. I left a lot of things out. Also, I didn't realize I had such a bad lissssp - I was getting on my own nerves as I always go over it afterwards listening for errors I made (I found a few) - think I need to add less treble to the mic and get some editing software. This mostly impromptu review thing is a bit stressful.

    This is just a fan video and you can, (for a brief while) see these videos if you click my sig or go to the Video Sticky section - if I've changed my sig.

    I don't make money off YouTube. I just do this as a fan of games in general.

    That's your opinion but I found it to be quite the opposite myself. I enjoy mmorpgs. I've played all the major ones since I started in the original EQ. 7 years in Wow and it gets boring. That's longer than most people stay at a job or stay married. I found Rift to be a refreshing change and Wow to more of a business now than an actual game.

    Yeah, I don't want to go into game vs game, but I honestly find Rift quite refreshing. Even the dailies are so damn varied, it is hard to get bored. There always seems to be a daily pug for Rifts, PvP Rifts, Epic Quest Lines, Raids (obviously not for these at the moment), Hunting Raids, or something to do.

    Funny you mention this. Yesterday, I set out to do my 60 dailes in Ashora and Steppes. A simple task, should take roughly 30-45 minutes. Took me like 4 hours because I ended up doing a Zone Event that popped in the middle of Ashora dailies, a couple Onslaughts I passed by that people were doing so did the daily for IS, saw a Hunt Rift group forming and I had a couple lures I needed to use so I joined them for a bit, another Zone Event popped, guild dropped a rally banner......

    And this is coming from someone who said they were taking a day off after the long push to 60. Shit's addicting.

    Heh you speak the truth. I took off Sunday evening after my push to 60. Got up this morning for work and had bags under my eyes but got about 10 solid of hours of sleep. I'm ready to tear up some of the max level content when I get home.

    It's quite the spectacle to see these huge parades of 50 to 100 people running from rifts to zone events. It's great to see the open world so alive with people and stuff going on they've certainly got a winning formula for a player interactive MMO.

    How's leveling like in Rift at higher levels (and mainly in SL)? Does it take multiple hours to reach a new level like in WoW: MoP where the xp requirements simply got out of hand or are the xp requirements more balanced (closer to GW2 than MoP, or any traditional MMO/RPG)? Do you have to do like 100 quests for a level up at the higher levels, or otherwise are you feeling like you aren't advancing at all?

    I'm just worried if the last level grind is the same in Rift as it's in WoW. I never leveled a character high enough in Rift to know by myself, always quited around lvl 20, but it was not Rift's fault, but WoW's.

    If you play effectively I think it's a little faster than WoW, but 50-60 is quite a bit slower than 40-50 was. I don't mind it tho, these giant new zones hide a lot of awesomesauce. But it takes multiple hours each level for sure. I think I've seen quest deliveries give between 1-3% of the entire level, but then you also gain quite a bit from doing the quests. And not to mention all the crazy shit you do between the quests.

    1-10 you can get though in a few hours
    10-30ish - About an hour each level
    30-50 - Not too bad either, 1-2 hours per level maybe
    50-55 - 2-4 hours per level
    55-57 - 3-5
    58-60 - 4-6

    All of 1-50 can be done in ~48 hours /played for an average player
    50-60 can be done in ~48 hours /played as evident by the world firsters out there. A more average player is probably closer to ~72-96, may go down as tweaks are made and there are more people at the higher levels(57+) to do things with.

    50-60 takes longer than 1-50.

    This is extremely true. If you are doing IA's and Hunt Rifts to get to 60, then it is dragging bad right now. The IA experience is nothing short of pitiful. This level drag is why I stopped bothering with the BETA's.

    They need to un nerf the veterans vials from 10% up to 50%.

    I leveled from 55-56 in something like 3 hours doing nothing but Hunt Rifts in Eastern Holding. Grab a friggin' AoE spec and tear things up. The XP gains for HRs are amazing if you're tagging enough mobs.

    They don't need to un-nerf anything. It is fine as it is. People, myself and several other posters here included, are already 60. If they made it take less, we'd chew through the content faster than they could release it, which is bad. They release content at a good pace and make the content they do take long enough to keep you entertained until new content comes out. I fully expect casuals to take 1-2 months, if not more, to level. This is not a bad thing, it means there is plenty of content to keep people busy.

    Now that I have had sometime to sink my teeth into SL, holyz shiz this xpac is awesome!

    I honestly never had this much fun in chocolate and I haven't had this much fun in a xpac since Wrath. Very well done imo.

    My only complaint so far is that I cant seem to find a group that will finish a dungeon hahaha. Queues are definitely long right now for dps, but people dont seem to care much for dungeons which is sad. Did the Storm Breaker Protocol and was blown away! Too bad we didnt get that last boss down though =/

    Oh and ShockTrooper is sooo much fun.

    You'll see a big increase in dungeons once the leveling process is done for most people and they start running the expert versions of the dungeons which offer better rewards. I didn't que for a single dungeon while leveling since I could level more efficiently in the world then struggling with dungeons that no one knows the mechanics for as of yet.
