    Defiant surprisingly.

    Guardians seem like fools

    "While some Defiants might reluctantly acknowledge that their methods are dangerous, potentially posing risks to the integrity of the world, they will be quick to point out that the world seems to be ending anyway, so everything is worth the risk. Besides, if the world is destroyed, who will be around to complain about it?"

    I was just about to make a thread like this. Given I am in the Rift Beta tomorrow. I had the chance to view the enterance to the game, the intro and I am going to be a Guardian. Why? Because how cool is it the gods have your back when you need them.

    I am rolling a Guardian simply because so far I like the quest area better in beta

    Defiant all the way. How can you deny playing a faction that has created bad ass techno-magic that not only brings the dead to life but can send you back in time!

    Does this game have anything to do with Rifts by Palladium games? That game also has techno wizardry, but I couldn't find a connection.

    Anyway, I haven't decided yet, but I might go guardian since I don't think machinery and magic should really mix.

    In every beta event there has been like way too many Defiants for two reasons;

    1. Everyone suddenly seems to enjoy playing "evil" races.
    2. Defiant racials are fucking OP.

    They devs have said they are adressing the racial issue though so hopefully it won't be like that at release.
    I'm probably going Guardian simply because it's gonna be the side with the least population which means instant BG queues and more world PvP.

    Well looking the population of gnomes and goblins seems technology and magic work well
    I will be Defiant

    Which is depressing because growing up when I first started playing MMO's I always picked evil looking characters or names from the age of 9.. 10 years later everyone wants to be evil.. now I'm just like everyone else. =/

    Something interesting I found out. While watching one of their PVP videos. That you can actually battle for "where" the next rift comes out. For example if you beat the other faction in a match more likely the next rift shows up on their land, can anyone confirm any of the vague details about this?

    Suddenly Guardians seem more tempting.

    MMO-Champion is probably a bad place to base this decision on anyway

    Guardian.

    The picture of the Mathosian is too much to ignore.

    lol, love the horde posers automatically going defiant. Just by going from the website alone, defiant look like crap.

    At least on guardian, Mathosian would look pretty boss in decent armor.
