Got on this morning when there was no line and enjoyed myself. Joined the Wanderers Guild and then had to log. Now I am trying to get back on and it's about a 40 min wait.

I think you can still get into the headstart. I know Direct2Drive is saying 'play today', plus there is the sale too.

I went ahead and bought it off steam because I'm a weak willed loser.  Plus, the D2D sale still includes sales tax.  It's only about 4 dollars less than steam even with 15 percent off. 

Downloading now.  Hopefully I'll be able to play tonight for a bit...if the queue gods are willing.

i always enjoyed when people in wow told someone to alt F4 most likely unaware that even if they fell for it, it would do nothing as alt f4 doesn't shut down wow. good times.

Folks,

Trion Worlds is committed to delivering products and services that amaze our customers. If we’ve only met your expectations, we haven’t done enough.

We put a lot of time and effort into creating a Collector’s Edition that would meet our level of quality. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the USB drive that was supposed to be included in the Collector’s Edition box for our European customers.

To make amends, we have put together an offer that we think does live up to our standards. If you purchase a Collector’s Edition from a European retailer, you will have your choice of either:

• The RIFT-branded USB we intended to include mailed directly to you, or

• One month of extra game time

As an added bonus, you will also receive:
• Gnar Hatchling Pet: This eight-legged spider pet is a loyal companion as you travel through the world of Telara.

• Complete Set of Sourcestone Runes: Each rune applies +3 Endurance and +10 resistance against the effects of rifts, plus particle effects that set your weapons apart.

Your complete set includes:
Blazing Sourcestone Rune (Fire)
Pulsing Sourcestone Rune (Life)
Frozen Sourcestone Rune (Earth)   
Shrouded Sourcestone Rune (Death)

Nice. I finally got around to checking my mailbox in game and got one of those runes. I assume you can re-use it since it doesn't disappear from your inventory.

I wish they had made it so you could use it on clothing too; my rogue had a pair of hotpants that would have looked hilarious with the green glow.

I'm pretty sure that pre-order/bonus sourcestones can be reused indefinitely, but any that are crafted (i.e. the vast majority you will see in the game) are one-shot.

Just had a very satisfying evening in Rift, ending at level 9.  I can't wait to get to Meridian and have a look around (and find a damn bank).  I've done plenty of quests and been pleasantly distracted by numerous rifts - lots of XP to be gained there.  Riding around on my enormo-turtle, twatting things with my big ole mace and water-based spells of smiting.  I'm running the game at the predefined medium settings and it looks absolutely gorgeous.

The queue was better tonight by the way.  I joined at position 150 and it took about 20 minutes to get in.  Lots of other folks online doing the same stuff...I like how you don't even have to be in the same group as someone and you can still get quest completion if you help someone out.  I haven't picked a profession yet, not sure I want to bother although if Rift is like other MMOs in this regard it would be an easy route to more gold.

Can't wait to play more!  It's a shame I'll be out of town for much of this weekend.  Reemul, I added your characters to my list.  Razgon, hurry up and buy the bloody game will you? smile

I named her that because of the markings around her eyes.  She's a Riftstalker/Assassin/Bard.

I can't imagine how the pet is a pain. Marks/Ranger may be the most common spec I've seen (it's mine too) and the pet is key to soloing for markmsman.

I only have 1 toon in wow and that's an 85 hunter, the pet is an integral part of that class. With so many variations of class in Rift I don't feel i need or want the pet. It seems to die very quickly, is slow to spawn as well. I want to swap out ranger and add in some close quarters melee and see how that works instead. As I deliberately didn't do the beta events it may be this doesn't work but the fun will be in the trying.

It may be i've had enough of pets and just need to play it without, still lots to try out.

I tried, I really tried. But forum effect causes another casualty. I haven't upgraded my PC in about 2 years. So I just ordered this:

iBUYPOWER Gamer Supreme 990XLC Gaming PC - Intel Core i7-950 3.06GHz, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Blu-Ray, GeForce GTX 460 2GB, Dual Radiator Liquid Cooling, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Any tips on a good monitor? I have an old Samsung 22 inch atm.

So I've torn a rift in my CC...and should be zooming through the game world in about a week.

I got both my toons to level 10 last night.  they're both the same builds on different servers, so when I can finally get into Sunrest I switch over from Harrow and get through the quests more efficiently since I know exactly where to go and what to expect.
