If you are like me you are certainly excited for this game for a couple of reasons.
1) The dynamic content and ever-changing environment: I love the idea of the rifts popping up anywhere at any time and changing the face of the are around, but with the foot holds that can happen if the rifts are left alone too long... after the game has been around for awhile do you think that older less visited zones will become overrun with mobs? Do you think that they will be able to keep them interesting? Will the rewards be "worthwhile" for higher level players to come back to them?
2) Souls and Soul Tree: I love the sound behind the souls and soul tree but how long do you think before there will be pages dedicated to telling you that THIS WAY is the only way to play a paladin or a shaman? All mmo that I have played have promised new and fresh ways to customize your character to play the game the way you want. But my question is do you think this game will fall into that as well, will you see the same cookie-cutter jobs running around to fill the raid-ranks, or will (for once) a game truly deliver and there will be multiple successful ways to build your "own" toon?
3) scale of 1 to 10 how excited are you for Rift? me personally its around a 9 im so excited to see if they fix the problems that every other mmo has failed to change.
