    So I think 1.7 testing will begin maximum after 14 days after 1.6 release :P

    This, i have played ALOT of mmorpgs, and no other company gives out content quicker than Trion does with RIFT : )

    I got to do the Ithkus event today. That was intense! Ended up for a while defending an arch with a group of Guardians. Was pretty fun, I love bantering with the opposite faction. Glad no one takes me too seriously there. I am really digging the nexus stuff. Getting the healing and turrets up and what not is fun. Loved how Ithkus shot down the arch to a different location. All around I am extremely happy and impressed with 1.6. Can't wait to try my hand at RotP 10 man.

    It's not just you. I feel the same way too. I leveled a defiant to 42, then started a guardian & reached it to 50 & i enjoyed the guardian setting more. Simply because they have more of a "fantasy element" to them. I just love Silverwood & Sanctum.

    Wait, what? I could have sworn the Defiants had just as many non-human races and just as much access to caster callings as the Guardians. They're just less...blandly Tolkienian.

    I saw a couple of posts on MMORPG.com talking about player housing being implemented. I headed to the RIFT forums and saw nothing regarding this.

    Is there housing in the works?

    It has been answered before. "If we do it we want to do it right" Our best guess is there is a new continent being added somewhere made for housing and there is a mystery interview with a phase that sounds like 2012

    Personally I hope they don't add housing, all it does is distract resources away from generating content. If they could magically produce it from nowhere I'd have no problem with it, but the fact is implementing it will take away from the actual gameplay.
    I fail to see what housing will achieve that you can't already get from Meridian or Sanctum anyway.

    Finally killed the squid Akylios. It only took us two months to get this bad boy down. A 20 minute fight is really punishing on a raid group between disconnecting, stable raid group and focus of all raiders for the entire fight makes for a grueling and fun encounter.

    Is Rift Ranks website up to date? How many guilds have killed the squid so far?

    @Primalthirst I seen your grats in the recruitment thread, thanks. Suprised you know of our kill on a different shard.

    Big time grats. Akylios is serious business and a real challenge to guilds. You can e-mail them, but I am unsure if they are actually updating the site. Worst comes to worse make a thread on the official forums!

    I see kills as recent as a couple weeks ago, seems they are still in business. If their site is accurate you are the 9th guild to kill Akylios Azuri, so grats

    One thing I'm wondering is how strict are people on the way you spec when it comes to raids and experts? More specifically, can I play around with certain builds that aren't listed on some website, and what's the disparity in damage done compared to the top ones?

    In any guild progressing in HK there are usually 2-3 builds that are competitive DPS wise. There is some flexibility but not a lot if you want to kick out top DPS, and with the difficulty of the fights you need to be putting out top DPS. A good example of the builds available for mages is available at bluedots.org's Endgame Mage PvE Guide, this should give you an idea of what is available for one of the classes.

    Pre-HK it's more flexible as the DPS requirements are a fair bit lower and again there are a handful more specs that will perform well. Some specs are better than others depending on the fight (adds, single target, movement, boss availability etc).

    Pre raiding you can spec how you like. The difference in DPS will vary widely depending on what you take but most specs are viable for pre raid content (as long as you aren't deliberately speccing like a moron).

    Yeah Fracture, is there a up to date progression site? It looks like Rift ranks no longer updates from what I can tell.

    You guys were World 19th to my knowledge.
    There was a post on Official Forums when you guys killed it and someone from Rift Runners put up a list where he'd been keeping track since Riftranks died ages ago.

    I've been unable to raid since early November due to work, but my guild is on Phase 3 at the moment, I'll be back soon to whip them into shape!

    Ah OK thanks, I tend to avoid any official forums for any games. They just tend to be cesspools of whinners. Phase 4 is when the fun starts. Good luck.

    Official Forums are awesome, I guess it mightn't matter for healers so much since the specs haven't changed too much but for Mage DPS they're invaluable given how complex the rotations can be and how large changes are between patches.
    I just tell the whiners to L2play, I sat in silence while Mages were fairly useless at everything for a few patches and Trion fixed it, quite nicely too I might add.
    The only thing that gets on my nerves are the 'OMG Rift is going to die if Trion don't fix it!!!!1!111!' threads which then say something like 'I play 3 hours a month why don't I get full BiS gear, I pay as much as hardcore, elitist raiders?? If you don't fix this everyone will quit your game!'
