With that being said, I understand what they were aiming for with the racials and probably succeeded in doing what even Blizzard says they should have to begin with. As much as I would like these racials to be available in combat, it would weight certain races in people's minds as 'better'. I don't really see it happening with these, as they are baseline designed as less OP than WoW ones, but it still makes sense.
I didn't even look at the racials when I was selecting a character. I'm pretty sure that's the intention.
I've never been one to do that in WoW either, I just play what looks awesome for that class, but apparently a lot of people don't feel the same way.
I actually think they should try and do a polish patch. Make an attempt at balancing some of the callings (AKA Clerics) and just polish up features (heard mentoring was a little off), and just flesh out other features. Doesn't necessarily need to happen at the expense of content, but there's just polishing up they could be doing. Also feel the engine could be optimized a bit more, lotsa complaints that zone events just drop FPS for tons of people and server lag is bad. Can't confirm those myself as I haven't done enough world events but it'd be nice if they just do polish stuff.
when do you think we are gonna see some new things on pts?
maybe the week after new year?
And when 2.2 will be released? my guess is around end of January
I was doing a dungeon today and we had a dps drop. W/e no biggie. So we kept pulling along and just as we got into a big pull BAM, the dps que for the missing person had been found and required me to click on it. It covers the center of your screen and is unmovable. It hides everything. For a healer or a tank panic mode sets in. Once clicked i had to spam my tank with quick burst heals just from dying. Then it popped back up for the other 4 members to click. Its INSANELY frustrating. This needs to be changed. I think the UI needs to be smaller or just auto add the new person to the group so we can continue on with the dungeon. U shouldn't need to click multiple times to show that u acknowledge that other people in the group also clicked that accept button.
“Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.”
Rift needs to add a decent 10+ boss raid instance to compete with WoW in 2.2, since they seemed to have stepped up the raid content this expansion, like 28 bosses already if u include launch raids and 5.2 (for wow) verses only 14 bosses in Rift do far.
It's actually making me think of resubbing and I quit wow swearing I would never return over 1.5yrs ago lol.
If people aren't playing Rift and raiding already, having more raid bosses than WoW won't change anything.
I do not have Storm Legion at the moment but I would like them to not display soul groups that have the expansion soul in them when I am choosing a spec. Though I suppose it could be intentional in your face advertising.
i have a feeling rift hard modes would be done differently, and would probably be almost impossible to complete
