Do you know what mentor system is? In EQ2 a mentor system means that you can play with lowbie friends while you are using your main high level character or vice versa and both getting some exp.

What do you think about have the mentor system in Rift?

I am always in favor of a mentor system. Especially in a game such as this, where once you have made one of each archetype, and you unlock all eight souls within it, you can virtually have any class combo there is. But truely, it is a way to socialize and group with your friends that may not have started when you did, without being overpowering. Lets face it, if you are 20 levels higher than some group members, one, they will not learn their characters, and two, you will be passing them through content that they may have wanted to see.

I really enjoyed the mentoring system in EQ2. I just wish they could have balanced it better. I wouldn't mind having to switch out gear and (in EQ2's case) spells so I could help my friends in their respective level tier.

But, yes, being able to mentor down 20 or more levels and becoming a god isn't as much fun for the other guys who want to learn their roles instead of just be power leveled through.

I'll agree with Wild on that, when you just wanted to play it was more like you were power leveling them. I think for the most part they would want to experience the challenge and near death fun times the game has to offer :)
