If anyone wants to try this game out, my friend who runs a computer store has given me quite a few 7 day free trial codes. Just post here if you'd like a trial code

Hey folks

As per usual I'm pretty late to the party (a-hem) after having been on a general gaming hiatus for the last few months. I'm looking to spend a bit more time on gaming again though, and in the spirit of trying new things I'm currently downloading the various updates to the Rift game client for a seven-day trial. While that's chugging along in the background I've been looking at the forums trying to decide what server to roll on, and Argent caught my eye. I have to admit I was excited to find there was a guild called 'The Elders' on it - now imagine my excitement on finding out it's actually, well, us!

Are any of you still active in Rift? Any tips for a new player?

Argent has a pretty good community, at least according to people who have experience from other shards. Public chat channels are certainly better then what you can experience on The Sha'tar, at least on the Guardian side. The shard is medium-populated and Argent Defiants outnumber Guardians by a significant margin. You can find groups for crafting, daily expert or raid rifts without much problems and on evenings, zone-wide invasions in high level zones attract large amount of players. There are plenty of PvP rifts too. PvE raid progress is pretty slow though. Overall, I'd say the shard is worth trying it out.

RP can be found on both sides, altough the Guardian one looks more lively. There's a number of RP guilds on both sides, ranging from light to heavy RP.

The Elders of Argent are connected to The Elders of The Sha'tar? That's new to me, but I may be wrong.

Well, that's what I concluded given the starting post of this thread! Or did I get the wrong end of the stick?

Thanks for your other comments Zam, sounds like Argent is a good place to start.

Hi. Unfortunately both The Elders and Elders are guilds NOT related to us and they were already formed when we started playing on the server. In the end we actually didn't start a Rift guild because there wasn't basically enough critical mass for that (not enough of us around at any given time on a single faction, basically).

At the moment I am inactive in Rift. I still think it's a fantastic MMO and from time to time I wonder about giving it a try again. Problem is, I guess, that with most people of our guild still in WoW and SWTOR and GW2 out in a few weeks/months, I don't feel compelled enough to come back to it. Who knows, anyway, I certainly didn't delete it from my PC anyway... :wink:

Haha, what a shame, and here was me getting all excited! :lol: Oh well, I'm still going to give Rift a shot, been meaning to check it out for a while now anyway.

I am looking forward to GW2 - I haven't really played GW in years (to the point that I did actually delete it from my laptop), but I still miss it from time to time. Can't wait to dust off my kick-ass fire ele when that comes out! If we can get The Elders going there, even better. :wink:

I have paused my WoW subscription and am now mostly playing Rift.

It looks like The Elders guild on Argent_AU shard is currently closed for recruitment :-(

Has anyone found a good Defiant guild?

My suggestion: Critical Failure for PvP/PvE content or Machine Born for RP.
