Above this you can see a nice button saying "wiki" this will lead you to the Wiki for Rift. It is small at the moment but dont worry. There is lots of information being gathered right now and once the NDA is over expect very shortly a plethora of guides, articles and walkthroughs suddenly appearing to help you out on release day.

More information regarding the release of NDA's grasp i'll post in here.

Honestly I don't know why they even use the NDA's. I mean sure its to help keep a lid on things to keep the players guessing, as well as to keep competition from knowing whats going on, but really what would it hurt to let us know whats going on? /endrant. Oh well, we'll know in 2 weeks anyways ^^

Or just ************ good enough for people to believe you. Like a wiseman once said, even if you don't know the right answer, scream the wrong one at the top of your lungs. Odds are people will believe you.

The only requirements is you signup and login, other than that if you have any data thats been released by Trion in one way or another you can contribute and add as much content to the wiki. Make you you add sources of your information. no one wants to break the law. we've already tortured enough Trion staff already.

If you are unsure on how you can add content to the wiki just post here in the forums or find me in the zam Irc channel and i'm more than happy to help you out.

on the matter of why the heck have an NDA. Im sure they dont have an NDA to just peeve off the game's followers. But im sure they have legit reasons and will end the NDA as soon as they seem its a right time.

Wow, really nice :-). A wiki is really handy for the new players and also for the experienced players. It sums up a lot of information.
The reason TION has a NDA is most likely commercial and legal. Seeing that they can control at the moment the stream of information is a good reason to keep an NDA on it and maximize the commercial output to extract as many players as possible.

They most likely have an NDA because they don't want people talking about features that are in this MMO and have some FTP MMO grab them up before they release Rift.

Another reason could be that they are working on a few ideas that they aren't sure will be in the game or not and don't want to turn off the masses. For example they might be throwing around the idea of X, and 100's of people don't like X, so then Rift gets a bad name.

Mostly this I think, the amount of cry babies in the mmo community is insane, I don't see how devs handle it but hey Rift is sluggin on through cross those fingers and I think they just might pull it off

Truthfully I believe it's because I don't think they want to be held to something by the community. Say they release what all will be availible during the retail and have to hold some things back due to bugs or whatever, then the community complains about getting their hopes up and blah blah. So I guess what I'm saying it to prevent certain expectations.

I didn't realize this had already been so well established.
You guys are really "ahead of the curve".
Keep up the fine work.

Inspired by Virut's post on how to be a good Beta tester, We have our first guide up and running on the Rift Wiki. Check it out here.

If you sign in you can also edit it and improve it, as with all wiki articles.

Cool!! Thanks for the guide! Now just need a VIP Key. =-)

Seriously, it would be great if Trion would send a guide like this (things to test/look for) with their download instructions.
