We do, and its already here. Check above in the drop down menu named "Database", here you can check out all the abilities and achievements in-game, We are working hard though to bring items, mobs, quests e.t.c that a great gamingDB has in store. Keep your eyes peeled on this spot.

I don't suppose you'd take "soon" as an answer? No?

We're planning on it - although we don't have concrete time tables for when the info will be available. Obviously we're trying to get it out as soon as possible. (But it's coming, and folks can see the foundations of it in the current database selection.)

Just to make sure we're clear, the site will not be specifically called "Rifthead" but will feature the same sort of tools and information users have grown accustomed to from ZAM's Wowhead site. The database and all the information will be found right here at rift.zam.com.

You guys/girls never stop amazing me. Can't wait to see the new item/quest DB. Glad to know it is in fact being worked on. Keep up the great work!!

Aw man.
And here I thought "RiftHead" was a new term for a person who plays Rift...
Like, you know, "Rivethead" and "Gearhead"?

Used in a conversation:

"Bob sure seems happy these days." "Yeah, Bob quit playing [insert other MMO here] and now he's a RiftHead."

Is there anything volunteers with specific skills can do to help the development of the datamining tool(s) etc. along? Do you need people to test it in game?

AFAIK, anyone with a valid ZAM account can edit the wiki with new information. I know that some quests are missing. For example, I found a quest today (Taking the Trog for a Walk(sp?)) in Stonefield, but it isn't listed in our wikibase. In which case you can hop on over and add it. I think we have a guide somewhere to editing the wiki... I need to add this entry myself, now that I think of it!

We have lots of guides to help you add content to our wiki, you can either click here or go to the drop down menu Wiki > Guides > Editing Rift@ZAM from the uber simple guides to revealing some neat tools and features you can use to edit the wikibase and database pages.

These are continuously updated, edited and revised, so if you have any how-to's requests, let me know and i'll get to work on it right away!

Note: If your logged in, you (as in the user) can add & edit content on database pages. Click the "Edit This Page" Button and create a guide for that achievement, ability e.t.c that will appear directly below the tooltip. No need to sift through hundreds of comments posted on the popular entries :)

The problem with a wiki is that most people aren't going to edit it. That's why you need a parser that automatically grabs the info and puts it into the database for them ;).

That's why we *are* having a legitimate database in ADDITION to the wiki. Believe me, databases are our bread and butter. :)

oh, just throwing this out there, but a lot of people liked the wowhead site and name and would probably appreciate the rift site being dubbed rifthead. :)

LOL, I always hated that name! But EQ/EQ2 were my games.

I don't know how we'll be getting our data and if there will be a database client for players to use. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available!
