    I seem to like the defiant better as a faction, but elves have and always will be my first choice

    Defiant don't actually seem evil. Dunno why people are getting that idea.

    Yet the Alliance still have a population advantage

    Its more "Religion vs Science" to be honest, mirroring life to a degree.

    I already decided on Guardian because the majority on the official forums seem to pick Defiants.

    But I really hate that they made it a lame two-faction game.

    And they aren't the "good guys" either.

    The Guardians come off has "Better than everyone else because we're 'The Chosen'" and that annoys me. So I'm going Defiant because they seem prepared for anything that could and will go wrong. I have yet to get into any of the previous Beta but I am looking forward to beta 5 here shortly. I was going to do my WoW dailies today but servers are down so I guess I won't log in until Friday afternoon haha.

    See you in Beta 5

    P.S. The Defiant don't have dwarfs.
    ...And that's why I had to kill daddy. He was giving the mouse a cookie!

    Moon is sheep. Let it be written!

    Also it seems like people forgot the concept of role-playing, you are not your character, you do not have to condone what your faction does.

    That's one bad thing WoW has done, it has pulled a lot of people into a fantasy world without them ever really playing RPG's first so they don't get the concept - unfortunately those players now migrate into other games to spread their nonsensical perceptions.

    They're meant to be "more good" should I say than the Horde

    I would really love to be Guardians, but they are way too obsessed with the Defiants.

    I'm going with Guardian! It just fits me quite well, and then the Defiant just seem... I don't know, I haven't learned much lore yet, but they just seem very... weird to me.

    Going Guardian, probably High Elf.

    I ended up with making a Guardian High Elf Cleric - Justicar/Shaman/Purifyer at this point which means a tank.

    I'm not sure. But i'll definatly play Rift for some months and cancel my wow sub.

    That game is really addicting with the Baldur's Gate atmosphere. (Beta is one of my best gaming experiences ever..oO and it's a beta)

    No, I don't have anything really interesting to tell you.

    It's Religion vs Science rather than good vs evil, which made the choice easy. Science!

  16. #56
    Defiant...just like the majority of others.

    I noticed this in Aion as well. The "evil" faction really seemed to outnumber the other faction.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Not entirely true. They don't practice a religion. They simply fight for the gods (real gods, unlike religions).

    I think if i must chose one faction it would be Defiant simply beacuse they're Horde of Rift,
    and Horde usually roflstomp Allies in pvp so obvious choice, but if i would choose race by look
    it would be Guardians.
