Starfall Prophecy Preview: Legendary Powers of the Cleric, Mage and Warrior

We bring you a second sampling of Legendary Powers for the final three callings. If you're looking for Rogue and Primalist, check out our previous article! Legendary Powers are just a few of the terrific features coming with Starfall Prophecy on November 16th!

Shaman – Time is everything, and Legendary Deep Freeze makes the best of it – this version no longer stuns targets, but now lasts a full 10 seconds.
Sentinel –Legendary Light of Redemption also applies Redeemed to the target when they are healed, increasing damage resistance by 6% for 16s. When Light of Redemption heals anyone, all targets with Redeemed are also healed. Mana costs are passively reduced by 25%, and Legendary Light of Redemption heals for 50% more.
Runeshaper – Smite your enemies as they justly deserve! With Legendary Rune of Impending Doom, you gain a stack of Smiting Force any time you do damage to the target (in addition to existing effects).
Oracle – Have you been seeking a reliable “get out of death free” card to play? Cast Legendary Defend the Fallen to ensure that allies cannot die for 8 seconds afterwards, in addition to its other effects.
Defiler – Legendary Unstable Transformation also causes Aggressive Avarice and Explosive Rage to consume only a single stack of Rage or Greed while active. Economy leads to victory!

Pyromancer – Legendary Fusillade casts Fireball on the target once every 0.5 seconds. At the end of the channel, if also hurls a satisfying Fulminate on the target.
Necromancer – Choose Legendary Condemn to convert all of the Mage's stacks of Deathly Calling on the enemy into stacks of Condemn, dealing Death damage over time per stack. Make things even worse for your enemy when it adds two stacks of Deathly Calling to the Mage when this ability ends.
Storm Caller – This soul has a simple need – more lightning! RIFT answers with Legendary Lightning Arc; it consumes stacks of Electrified to deal increased damage. Simple. Effective. Deadly.
Elementalist – The Legendary Elemental Burst has a chance to be automatically cast a second and third time after the initial cast.
Archon –Every time Illuminate deals damage, Legendary Illuminate amplifies the damage of your next Pillaging Stone by 10%. Even better, it stacks up to 20 times.

Warlord – Legendary Breaking Blow no longer consumes AP. It merely consumes up to 60 Power to deal additional damage.
Void Knight – If you consume 3 pacts, Legendary Ascended Discharge doesn't go on cooldown.
Tempest – Pulses reduce the cooldown of Legendary Wavelength by .5s each time they deal damage.
Reaver – Legendary Shadow of Dread passively causes your reaver dots to tick three times as fast but last 50% less time. It gets you to your goal faster!
Liberator – Legendary Medical Facility no longer reduces the cast time of Deliverance and Fast Relief. It causes Deliverance and Fast Relief to splash 12% of their healing in an AoE around affected targets.

I think I'm informed enough about the game to make a reasonable review.

Don't play this ♥♥♥♥.

-Extremely buggy, no fixes or they take forever to patch
-Playerbase is non-existent (especially on EU servers)
-With the new expasion game is becoming B2P + microtransaction + optional subscription + who knows what new way they introduce in the expasion to milk their customers
-If you want to get started, be prepared to spend some serious cash on the game. We talking 100s of dollas, just to get the expasion pack + unlock gear slots + souls
-incompetent support (I mean it, they really cant do anything at all to help you with your issues whatever they may be)
-heavy censorship and banning
-raids are fun (some of them at least) but you will never be able to find enough people to raid with (there's literally 1 or 2 guilds on EU left raiding in 20men raids)
-the new expasion is gonna have only 2 dungeons + 1* 10men raid (but that wont even be on release but couple weeks after)
-extremely grindy and repetitive
-pvp is unbalanced and generally completely broken

If you are thinking about giving this game a try, don't. Save yourself the time and just trust me on that, the game is dead and you won't be able to get into any end-game content unless you pay some serious cash.

I wonder if they'll change the tag of the game from f2p to b2p once the expansion is released. It would be like saying that WoW is free to play because you can get few levels in the starting zone without paying sub ... but I'm pretty sure they won't.

Game play, graphics & storyline was great. But since this game is free, there are a lot of restriction in it, unless you are willing to pay. For example, bag slots, armor slots (earrings). I can understand the game need to make money in some way to keep it running but for bag slots or and armor slots? I personally think it went a bit too far. Most MMO now a days are more or less the same but only apply to skins or mounts, for "want" item(s) and not a "need" item(s). Therefore, sadly I ahve uninstalled the game.

Dont let time played fool you, i have more off of steam, didnt realize it was on here for a while...The game started GREAT yes it was a rip of WoW...but its free...and was a good rip!

Fun gameplay
Not cookie cutter specs as much as other MMOs
Lots of content!!
amazing to interact with all all lvls! something i wish more MMOs did...
leveling is really boring...xp speeds up with lvling
So many different ways to lvl...all pretty fun! PvP..IAs...Dungs etc
Community is AMAZING! People actually help!

Recent patch...destroyed this game for much more is needed to do basic task...
its not so much p2w...just pay to move WAY WAY faster in gearing at max lvl...
Up until this last patch id love to tell everyone to play this game! But since the p2advance and get say STAY AWAY UNTIL THEY RESOLVE THIS SO MANY PPL ARE COMPLAINING THEY WILL HAVE TO RESOLVE OR THE GAME WILL DIE

Its fun until max now...

Dont listen to the bad reviews. This is not a pay 2 win, not even close. Anything you can pay money for you can get from a dungeon raid pvp anything. You can even get Gems which are the cash for currency with out spending a dim. This game runs great has beautiful graphics. I have few hours on steam but ive been playing Rift on Glyph for a very long time. This MMO beats WoW 100%. I would like to see more types of charcaters and more mounts but hell... it's still new give the game a bloody chance and dont judge when you have only played for an hour. WoW when it first started was just as "glitchy" or ""P2w"" They will expand and make it even better than it is currently. Cant wait keep the great games coming Trion!!!

The company does not care about its customers, their opinions, what they invest in the community. They are scum, almost as bad as EA with worse games they mostly don't even make themselves.

Stay away from this game, and Trion.

I was a day 1 player, when it was a subscription service. Actually not a bad game in the beginning. I realized quickly however, the monotony of repitition. Once the game went free, in came the sycophants and everything went to hell in a handbasket. If you truly have absolutely nothing better to do, then by all means, put yourself to sleep playing this. However, be warned, the reviews in general aren't wrong it is truly now play for free, but Pay To not only just win but even to advance in any decent fashion. I have returned to the world of reality and left MMO's entirely. Just not my cup of tea

This game is possibly one of the best MMO's i've played, the game has great graphics, runs smoothly, easy controls and great machanics.

The game is free to play, which evidently means that there are some pay to win aspects to the game but nothing major that can ruin the gameplay.

Unfortuently the game isn't as popular and only has a small playerbase but the community is great and friendly! I really like the sense of fellowship with Guilds, although the censorship of certain words like ♥♥♥♥, have recieved me being kicked from my pretty elite guild, ♥♥♥♥ you too! btw.

Due to the small playerbase, expecting to get into a PvP arena is very rare, as well as raids.

The game has amazing seasonal events, and it really brings the playerbase up and allows for new and fun challenging quests to arise that seperate it from the other quests.

TL:DR; What have you got to lose? It's FTP.

I really liked it at the beginning.. nice atmosphere, etc. Found a guild for myself and then my account was hacked after 10 days playing.. this game must be some really serious security problems because my pw was not even easy to guess out, I never use easy passwords.. never visit dangerous sites and always payed attention to the defense of my PC-s.. and still.. hacked my account after 10 days playing... have nice playing with my lv 10 character which dont even had any money, lol.... don't recommend this game.

Listen to the other reviewers. This game had incredible potential upon release but has since been ruined by Trion's touch, as per usual. Stay away if you don't want to spend a fortune trying to advance.

First off lets get something straight, you can currently play all content without paying a penny, so many people are complaining its P2W but its not, i've played a small amount of time in rift (currently 1.7k hours) and if i didnt want to i didnt have to pay anything, yes there is a new expansion being released which you are being asked to pay for but you can get it for as little as £30 atm (prob cheaper elsewhere if you know where to look) but then how many wow expansions have you had to pay for ? oh all of them.

The game is great imo, plenty of people playing and assuming you get talking in local you can join a decent active guild like i have. My current guild mates purposly did dungeons they had completed ages ago to get me and others geared (my newest character that is), Yes you can pay cash to open certain things like earrings but you can also use ingame currency for that too (which currently takes no time at all to get).

The gfx are great and trion have recently introduced quad core support but only time will tell if it improves my already decent fps or not.

Would i recommend this game ? yes, its an mmo so get yourself into an active guild (there are plenty out there) enjoy all the current content (which is free), If you are thinking of spending a bit of real life cash then get the expansion (out on 16 nov).
All in all I love rift and will hopefully be playing it for years to come.

I really like this game and I think it can hold itself up against several p2p mmos. The housing is great (a little bit too expensive for my taste) and the gameplay is fun (questing gets repetitive but that's the case in almost every mmorpg). What really bugged me was the amount of times the game tried to lure me to the cash shop, but since it's a f2p mmo i think kinda justified.
