This game has all of that.

God I hope so. There's nothing I want more in Rift right now than that Nebula Equine.
I found that I was able to get everything I wanted and had the potential to get literally everything if I chose. That part was very well done. Leveling 1-50 during Fae Yule was awesome.
The higher level you get in rift, the more you notice the difference between the two games. to start off with it will seem so similar to wow but especially 50-60 the game feels completely different.
I've not checked if every single event item is still available but I did see the piston spider mount and the nebula mount I think they are 5 coins which you could get one per day during the last carnival event last year or possibly another one, can't recall.
Is rift free2play yet?
I don't play Rift so I have a question...with the way the specs/souls work what's to stop everyone from playing the most optimal one in PvP or PvE? Won't everyone just be running around with the same build because it's the best?
Now, granted, each of those specs is pretty much set, and most other Ranged DPSers will be using the MM/RNG I use, AoEers use The same Tact build I use or Sab. Tanks have a little bit of variety in the sub-souls they choose, bust still gonna be 61 RS. Bard there is a little variation as well, some use 61 Bard, 10 NB, 5 Sin, others use 61 Bard/15 Tact and still others use a Tact/Bard Hybrid I am less familiar with.
I can't speak much for PvP as I really don't PvP much. I use a NB/RS, a Bard/RS or my MM/Rng with a different pet when I do PvP.
Now, that is really only if you a raider. If you mostly do open world stuff, or just 5-mans, or are in a more casual raiding guild, you can play as whatever you want really. I meet people with all sorts of specs they devised. They may be sub-optimal, but they are having fun with it. Really, you can get away with a lot in Rift, unless you are in a top end guild going for world firsts.
So yeah, kinda, but you get a lot of variety and will find yourself switching specs a lot.
With the ability to have so many different specs and change on a moment's notice, there's no reason not to. Even in WoW, which has some diversity, you can play any spec and accomplish most things. Nothing prevents you from playing how you want to in this game, unless you want to be a competitive world first raider. But like I said, moot point because that's the way that always is.
