The Supreme Overlord has spoken and he states that the gathering forces of our Staffers who plan on playing a PvE version of Rift are heading for the Wolfsbane shard. While I'm sure we will have folks on both sides, the majority have elected to side with the Defiant. We haven't settled on a guild name though - and we're taking suggestions!

I'll start! My suggestions is: Deus Ex Machina

Locke's edit1: I tried to get into the guild this weekend but was told that everyone up and left for another server. We'll see, I guess?
Edited, Feb 28th 2011 11:56am by LockeColeMA
Locke's edit2: Got it right now!

Server: Laethys
Faction: Defiant
Name: Deus Ex Machina

A flowery server for a flowery group!

Unfortunately I'll be rolling on a pvp server, but I wish you all the best. The community doesn't say it enough, be we do appreciate all the work you put into providing us content. The Soul Builder and Wiki alone are a godsend.

More serious this time. My brother and I played a PnP RPG called Chill about 15 years ago and made a group name that I've always been fond of. I'm not going to make a guild though, so I'll put this out there and if people like it that would be awesome.

While I'll also be rolling PvE, I'll more than likely be going Guardian. Just can't decide where I wanna go and part of me's still averse to various "recruitment" techniques as they all just stink of really bad job interviews.

i'm just wondering, since the staffers are all playing the "evil" side (i say it that way because it's not really an issue), does that mean the defiant side is going to be op (kinda like the horde were op in wow for so very long). If so, then i'll just cancel my account now.
#21 Feb 23 2011 at 3:15 PM Rating: Good
Defiant zones are ugly and every smells like teen spirit rebel against their comfortable life in the suberbs emo in the multiverse is going Defiant.

I played Horde the last 6 years so I think I'll go shiny happy people side this time. :P

Gaurdian on Faeblight. I liked it there in beta. There is a movement to make it an "Oldschool" server where people talk in complete sentences. Chat trolls starve from lack of attention and people are actually courteous.

I remember my server in FFXI was kind of like that. One can only dream of such a bastion from knuckle dragging unwashed masses these days outside of half dead asian grinder games. But I'm going to give it a chance.

Gluck on Wolfsbane Zam admin types and you have fun on your <It burns when I PvP> server too KT. I wish you many ecreds and epic/cliche meme lulz.

Please tell Aadyn that Snorre from the Asylum says hey! We were guildmates back in EQ in Followers of the Stars...

I'm torn - I dig the lore of the Defiant but I always play Dwarf characters and I really have no problem with the Guardian side. The Bahmi are cool, so I'll probably create one as a secondary character. Still, I'm a drunken Dwarf at heart and I'm too old to go changing my ways.

No idea what server I'll end up on - the RP servers sound interesting. I like the sound of Shadefallen.

**Edit - Ended up with my main Dwarf Bard/Nightblade/Riftstalker on Faeblight (PvE-RP) with alts also on Shadefallen and Estrael (both also PvE-RP). My main, Snorre, joined the guild The Wyld Hunt. Looks like a fun, mature guild to hang with.

You do realize that the administrators at this site are not actually part of Trion's team, right? Smiley: dubious If so, I don't know how your observation is valid at all - it's up to you to research for yourself if a side is OP (but I'll give you a hint - neither side is, especially on a PvE server).

I wonder if you can still have characters on both factions on a server like you could in beta... I may have to try. :)

Also, I plan on playing from start time through much of the evening.

Excellent, I guess I will see you addicts there then. My suggestion for a guild name...

"Plane of Knowledge"

Because I for one will be tapping my planer lure to call forth a knowledge rift from ZAM frequently. I may even dump some knowledge back though the rift as it closes.

I am starting to get that raid fever again. I feel more strategies are eminent.

Wolfsbane has also been adopted as the unofficial Oceania Server by most serious Oceania guilds.

This will be good news for everyone as it means that it will be pretty much a 24/7 server due to the various players from different timezones - should always be people around no matter what time you log in.

....now all i have to do is wait for another few hours before I can get through the queues, and here was me hoping for a couple of hours play before work (server up was 5am Australia time).

All servers just got shut down. Might be to increase capacity on current ones and add more servers. Whatever it is I'm just gonna wait it out and let things stabilize. Can't wait to play tonight. Good luck to everyone trying to log on once the servers come back up.
