Rift can be a enjoyable and interesting online game, but it can appear challenging and nerve-racking if you’re inexperienced in the world of MMORPG‘s, so The Beginner’s Guide to Playing Rift- Part One, was created to help you out.
Though you can learn on your own through practice and experience, you will be able to progress faster and enhance your playing experience if you understand the principles of the game. Therefore, within this short article, I will explain how to get started playing the game of Rift. However, if you are more experienced and want to move ahead to successfully and quickly level up than check out this post.
To begin, Choose a Shard
When you log into Rift for the very first time, the first thing you will be asked to do is pick a world to play on, also referred to as a shard. In game terminology, a shard is essentially a server, the physical place your game is played on. Trion, the designers of Rift game have servers in the US and Europe.
PvE (Player vs Environment)- You’ll be safe from attack within your homelands, unless you show aggression towards players of the opposing faction first. PVP (Player vs Player)- You can be attacked by the opposing faction going on your home turf on any occasion. RP (Role Playing)- Provides the identical rulesets as PvE and PvP, but designed for role-playing. (Best used for experienced and advanced players.)
Then, Select a Faction
There are just two factions in Rift: Guardian and Defiant. In gameplay, these two separate groups have the identical common goal- to rescue Telara- but they have diverse approaches on how to complete it. Those differences pit one group counter to the other, with the end result being battling and conflicts. Each faction has their own story, separate dwelling spaces and different racial identities. They also begin the game in distinctly different places inside the Rift universe. Here’s a brief summary of the two factions:
The Guardians: Chosen by the Vigil (gods) to rescue Telara, these characters are waiting for the Day of Judgement, revealing their fate in the holy plan required by their gods.
The Defiants: They believe in the ability of technology and enchantment to save Telara, and mock the sacred creed held by the Guardian faction. In the game, both factions stay isolated and don’t have interaction with each other. In spite of this, unlike other MMOs, gamers are permitted to create characters in both factions within the same shard.
In part two of The Beginner’s Guide to Playing Rift, I’ll explain the four callings and cover the Rift soul attunement system.
