Hi all i'm new to this forum i'm not sure where to post some questions I have feel free to direct me to the aporpiate place.
I just got my full acount last week(fathers day special) and thought i'd kick the proverbial tires of rift past 15 for a month. Got the delux package as it was only a bit more than the normal one. ^_^
Let me say I've plaid WoW for a while- good game on balance after reading about Rift in trade I thought: what's this Rift thing realy about?
Roled a mage calling without any idea what to do- though I did read the tool tips wich said something to the efect that chloro goes well with warlock hmm I thought that's odd a life based caster with a death based caster? Ok why not suficed to say I was unprepared though pleasently suprised that it somehow gets healed in combat-dps is a tuch low but it lets me explore and have a few oh $#%^& buttons.
It wasn't till I was invited to a guild that I found out it's considered somesort of support combo (no idea what that meens)I got into deeling with the tenticle things that pop up and finding green number on my screen. I might do a cleric calling to.
My questions are:
What's considered best practices for someone that's fairly casual about Rift for geting into chloro spec equivilants?
The tank like people that've invited me to PUGs SEEM to like the buff that I can put on them with some sort of traditonal heal and that's where my knowledge of magelike healing or is that "healing"? ends. I'm used to paladin and shaman healing from WoW where when a green bar is bellow a certain point I pop a heal or hot. I can't get my head around chloro healing though the 10-19 range chanel helpy people seem convinced that it's doable
Would a flaling nub to Rift be better with a different setup?
I can't find healing or dps addons for Rift I HOPE they exist I can't imagine healing without Vuhdo(or equivilant)-in group scenarios.
Also: what's with the lack of something that tells me how much threat I have compared to something tanklike lol I only say that because the two or three times i've been in a dungeon the thing in plate with a tank icon by it's name had the devils time keeping stuff off of squishies. Is there a setting I don't know about?
So far it seems like a nice change up from WoW. I dig the invasions and it doesn't seem unduly grindy.
Thanks for reading a long post from a new player.
