Many of you might know game called Rift. I tried Rift when it wasn’t Free to play, I did liked it a lot back then but I didn’t know anyone who played it. Now I knew that @MissMurloc plays it, so I invited myself to play on the same realm (thank you <3). Now there is ATS (all the squirrels) guild up too!
Rift as a game is is located in a world called Telara.
“Telara is the focal point of the elemental Planes: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Life, and Death—and one point where every one of these Planes intersect with each other. Each Plane is governed by a dragon-deity, which is the personification of that elemental force. Through the actions of the Dragon of Extinction, Regulos, the various dragons have united in an alliance known as the Blood Storm, for the purpose of invading Telara and gaining use of the intersection of all of their realms. In the past, the Blood Storm was defeated by the inhabitants of Telara with the help of the Vigil, the most powerful of the native gods.
Regulos was cast out into the elemental Planes, while its five compatriots were trapped within Telara and chained beneath a ward designed to close Telara off from external threats. However, recently, Regulos has gained entry to Telara, destroying the ward and causing rifts to open, feeding the strength of the trapped dragons and allowing their minds to enter in a bid to destroy Telara’s defenders. Players have the role of ascended, superhuman resurrected warriors whose task is to defeat the forces of Regulos and cleanse Telara forever of the threat of the Storm” – Wikipedia
Like in WoW there are two factions in Rift Guardians and Defiant. Guardians follow the religion of the Vigil, the supreme gods of Telara. Their forces include High Elves, the Mathosians (warlike culture of humans from the north) and Dwarves.
Defiant are those who, for cultural, historic or personal reasons, do not follow the religion of the Vigil and have put their trust in science and technology as a way to conquer the forces of Regulos. Their forces include the Eth (a highly advanced human culture from the south) the Bahmi (descendants of interbreeding between Air spirits and Humans) and the Kelari (animistic, cabalistic Dark Elves).
We are currently taking part on Guardians forces but I’m probably going to jump on the other side when I get my Cleric at max level (I want to try both sides and the Defiant sounds really interesting with all the science ^^).
My current Soultree, as you can see I’m loyal to my roots and chose my Clerics main soul to be Druid 😛
Being a Druid I get to have 2 pets, Satyr protector (and by guessing from the name it is my tank) and Faerie Healer (and it is my healer).
