Primalist Calling Coming in RIFT: Into the Wilds!

Moving between Cunning and Fury, Primalists of Telara battle the forces of destruction and channel powerful animal spirits in defense of their lands! Read more to learn about this new Calling coming in RIFT: Into the Wilds!

Starved of their karma by the Tenebrean menace, the Primalist Bahmi of Planetouched Wilds learned to focus their negative energies into furious rage and clever tactics to control the untamed elemental forces they were forced to combat. Clad in leather and wielding either two melee weapons or powerful two-handed armaments, these spirit-bound barbarians should be approached with caution.

As a Primalist, you must learn to balance Cunning and Fury, as both can impart special effects to your attacks or shift your focus from one to the other. To master this Calling, it is essential to find the harmony between these forces. With your close connection to nature, you’ll also be able to call upon a Primal Avatar, a spectral animal that grants you the strength and wisdom to overcome your foes. Many a battle has been won or lost through effective use of these gifts!

Choose between six different Souls, from the resilient, steadfast Titan (Tank) to the tranquil Preserver (Healer). Defend your allies against furious onslaughts, fight valiantly by their side, or mend their wounds to keep them fighting strong. Each Soul is unique, offering dramatically different paths and playstyles. How you approach a battle will depend entirely on which you choose.

Now is the time to prepare, Telarans! The Primalist will be available for purchase with the launch of RIFT: Into the Wilds, or as part of The Wilds Pack.

Tried the game myself and I have to say that it is quite addicting or addictive. It has it's ups and downs but course I will say what are cons and pros for this game for YOU to decide if you want to play it or not.

Pros :

+ Very huge open world to explore
+ Nature environment is so beautiful and it feels so alive
+ Tons of rewardable quests to make you very busy if you're bored
+ Detailed tutorials
+ Editable and customazible soul tree to make your character explore and test lots of abilities
+ Build a house with friends or global players (WoW hasn't done that yet)
+ Minnion quests fits nicely
+ Great mounts and pets (course premium means real cash)
+ Rifts to close all over the world with great rewards
+ Kill a monster in new area you get automatic quest (it gets confusing if you're overloaded with 5 or more quests)
+ Swimming is great with limited breath bar to make underwater quests challenging
+ Mentoring your character is great and useful if your friends are lower level
+ Self buffs that lasts for an hour or more and you can re-buff at any time you like
+ Some story quests have a great voice acting and it's worth it to listen if you understand the story
+ If I would choose between WoW and/or RIFT, I would pick up RIFT
+ Tons of achievements in game (but I prefer STEAM achievement)
+ Free To Play
+ Large player base
+ Extensive class customization (some classes and creations are limited see cons below)
+ Rifts create dynamic gameplay
+ I recommend it for people who don't have annoying wife's ;)
+ Addicting from every corner or look of the game no matter where you are
+ Fishing is so much fun :)
+ Crafting & Minning is also in the game but I haven't got the chance to try it
+ Rewardable events
+ Friendly player base (well if you are nice and polite)
+ Auto adventure is great (if you're level 10 you can do level 20+ or higher quests with others that level)
+ Bonus rifts are unlimited with great rewards if you can beat shown minutes or seconds with tons of players
+ Great sound and music
+ Server time is confusing to me and/or others so it's good that you click on that clock to keep an eye on your RL clock.
+ Weekly updates (thursdays)

I didn't forget about the cons as well and these I HOPE will be gone away in the future (with big hopes)

cons :

- Some class balance issues
- Limited races for character creation (you need DLC to unlock limited races for character creation and other premium things)
- RIFT: Ultimate Nightmare Edition costs 2 much (139,99€) unless you live a very rich life then go ahead and buy it
- Leveling from level 10 or 15 to 65+ gets quite hard as EXP rating slows down unless you want to do repeatable quests and events
- Annoying guild requests
- There is no actual story because you have quests are all around the huge map
- Aggressive mobs are annoying even if you try to avoid them
- No falling damage
- Too many aggresive mobs makes it harder to focus on your quests (specialy if there is a whole pack when you're on a quest grind)
- No autowalk (although map does show where you need to go) P.S. i don't look for key bidnings i take my time explore yellow area untill i find it
- Some players are stealing kills
- No steam achievements (game has it's own but tons of it)
- 4 downloadable contents costs way to much (324,96€). Why would I or someone else pay that much if I or somebody else can get all that for 139.99€. And even that costs way to much.

RIFT DLC editions costs too much specialy if you're planning to spend over 325€. Spend 68€ for Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe Edtion with game guide on how to level up ANY of race class + you get great useful premium items.
I do recommend this game but be warned that play for free has it's limited restrictions unless you want to buy NIGHTMARE EDITION. I am happy enough that is play for free but at least they could do is lower the prices for nightmare edition if it's worthy of getting it.

Some of you may think that some the cons are funny and/or stupid. But that's how I see it.
Everyone has it's own taste but I love the game myself so I try and ignore the cons and maybe 1 day i'll buy nightmare edition.
I recommend it but many of you won't like it. If you don't, well there's always uninstall button.

The best MMO I've played. Really.
Only thing I can compare it to is WoW. But there the world is pretty static (or at least was, since I've only played it till WotLK and got bored, so no idea how the things look after the Cataclysm). Here you can get a rift open right above your head if you are (un)lucky enough. There's hardly a way to have nothing to do in this game, since the world changes every minute, bringing forth new challenges.

Of things that I like (concerning gameplay):
- tons of quests, including daily crafting ones (helps improving crafting skills a lot)
- public group option: now you don't have to put the group up yourself, invite each player separately etc; just one click and you're in with all the group bonuses
- invasions!!! Those really bring players together (since it takes quite a lot of running around to fend off all the atacking mobs, seal rifts and defend ward stones in different points of the map at the same time)
- fishing (holy cow, I love fishing in this game!)
- tons of things-to-do-except-for-standard-MMO-stuff: artifacts hunting, minions quests etc.
- it's free; like really - everything u can get with real money, you can get with the in-game currency, it just takes time to gather some coin, but it's doable

- Auction House is not available untill you get Loyalty points - and you can get them only by paying real money or buying one terribly expensive stuff in game (called Rift EXchange); but well, I guess that can be forgiven - that's the only inconvenience I met and it's not really a problem - if the AH was available, REX would be even more expensive since the in-game currency would be easier to get or, in worse case, they would make something else not available to provoke ppl to pay; and one can live without AH, especially if u get into some guild where u can trade with your guildmates (or more like ppl just leave stuff they don't need in guild vault and you just come and get what you need, leaving your thing for others).

Of non-gameplay matters:
- graphic is really great (see screenshots); remember it's an MMO (so u tend to have XX players and mobs on the screen running around, casting spells etc.), and it all runs smoothly even though you can find worse models/animations in single-player games; guys who did the optimization for this game did their job really well
- also graphics stuff - landscapes are beautiful and vast; sure the map is divided into zones, but it's done neatly and not hurting ones eyes (like suddenly coming out of dense forest into almost-desert plains)
- I like how female models are done; I'm always irritaded when I see the "very-fantasy" heroines on high heels, with almost no armor and their boobs bigger than their heads; here the female heroes have quite realistic bodies (like one guy said "hey, I noticed my XXX doesn't wear a bra!") and if they're supposed to be warriors, they wear a full plate (even my rogue wears a full leather)

So if you like MMOs, this one is definitely worth a shot. It has everything a "standard" one should have + some things from itself - and everything done really well.

Rift is a little 'smile because virtually every element of the game was caught by some other MMORPG and proposed in a similar, if not identical, to a group of developers whose creative effort has been, well, decidedly modest. And that does not do well in a market that is now lacking in ideas. Despite everything, however, the MMORPG from Trion Worlds is a bit 'a summary of the best of the genre and if it is true that developers are cloners Kaminoans worthy of Star Wars, it is equally true that the final product came on the market in one It was almost perfect, finished, content rich and free of burrs or technical problems: a job that deserves much praise, considering the disastrous launch and the paucity of the contents that characterized some newer products. In effect, Rift nowadays is the real alternative to the two best MMORPG theme-park market, World of Warcraft and The Lord of the Rings Online, and this is not a trivial matter.
