Hello everyone, as a long time WoW player I've become bored and dissatisfied with the game, and recently (a few days ago) switched to Rift. I was curious, what is the best way to level up from 1-50? I asked on the official Rift forums, and someone told me that it would be having a level 60 mage throw a Charged Shield on me, and then I myself should mentor down and run through masses of mobs in high-density low-level areas. I was just wondering if anyone had any extra input.
I was also wondering how to increase the usefulness of the nameplates. To clarify, I already have them enabled in-game, but they don't seem very responsive. If I click on the nameplate itself to switch targets, it usually takes 2-3 extra clicks before the game will finally switch my target, I've had to resort to targeting the mobs by clicking on them directly (which is highly inefficient in large packs where everything sort of "balls up" in to one large group). It makes it a bit more difficult for me to multi-dot (playing as a Mage - Warlock) and tab targeting is unpredictable, if there's a way to bypass these issues I'm having that'd be great and I'd much appreciate the info.
