If it makes you feel any better... I got the mace from the first boss on my first run through ICC, and the shield dropped on my first "kill" of gunship, both 10-man regular (if that makes a difference to you.)

Though currently, I can't effectively grind heroics (I try to get my one a day for the VP, but my latency doesn't really allow for more than that, and raids are out of the question.) So being able to get JP from regulars to upgrade my gear (still wearing 4 ilvl 318 pieces, the bracers I won't be able to upgrade from JP though) is nice. It will keep me more or less "on the level" when I get back to Germany in April.

Another plus to badge gear... off-spec upgrades. Especially if someone is normally dps and your guild has a high tank/healer turnover. Because I'm sure noone has ever had an night where their guild needed a temp tank/healer, but since their gear fell so far behind, they weren't able to step up.

The soul trees and various combos are definitely interesting, and being able to customise your build to fit exactly what role you have in mind is certainly welcome, so hopefully it lives up to the enthusiasm I felt on the beta.

Most likely going to be Defiant on Keenblade shard (because screw the Guardian douchebags :P)


If you get bored, the Discord boys will be on Shatterbone PVE under the guild name Depraved :)

EDIT: Defiant, ofc ;)

A toon there will be my 2nd stop sir ;)

I too will be rolling Defiant on Keenblade. It was my Beta server so I'm sticking with it. What name do you have picked out for your toon? We can be friends :P I will be rolling a Rogue for sure as my main. Name will be Warpunk. If you get a random whisper from any person that has "punk" in his name, it will most likely be me :P

I got my client installed and patched up and can't wait for the servers to go live in T-Minus 11.5 hours!

Get out of my head! I rolled defiant on keenblade during beta, and will most likely end up there for release. Couple of RL friends and guildies from wow will be joining me. Unsure about any guild name. Name will almost certainly be Tin, unless it gets taken before I can claim it.

And from a couple posts I've seen, this is happening on ALL their servers across the board. I'm figuring theyre limiting the number of people that will be in the starting areas. At 310ish over 1 hour wait time.

Hearing this makes me feel okay about the fact that I'm at work and unable to play. If there's still a queue when I get home, then I doubt I'll be able to play at all tonight, since it's a raid night in wow.

Warlord is nice for a 0pt tertiary. It gives you an aura that causes enemies to miss 5% more. Pretty ballin'.

Reaver mainspec, not going to have enough points in Paladin to get a charge for quite some time. Champion was a natural choice in that respect. Can't beat a charge. :)

Unless you really need the mitigation, there isn't much point mainspeccing Paladin until you get your Balance of Power (reflective shield) / Tip of the Balance (healing through BoP). Weak aoe, general lack of self healing. Reaver is quite awesome for both of those.


Also:

#show Chain Heal
cast Retaliation
cast Chain Heal

Got my Rogue created and played for 20 mins this morning, woke up at 7pm (PST) and there was a 3 hour 500+ que. I only had 45 min so I rolled an alt on a pvp server that had medium pop, started with an A, think its one of the new servers they just made. I expect there to be a que time tomorrow morning when I get off work as well. Also everytime I've logged in the environment has been stable, no lag, no DC so thats good.

Has anyone found any theorycrafting Rift sites yet? More preferably one with rogue information.

I wish they had an Armory, but they said they aren't going to implement that any time soon, if ever.

I think this build picks up alot of the good aoe and self healing from reaver while still getting the damage mitigation of Paladin: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1cAhE.xzqph0k.ExRusciszMz

I'm still not sure how I'm gonna spec leveling up, as you basically can't do IT aoe pulls without having Plague Bringer :/. So I may Reaver main for a little bit. But I'm a Paladin at heart!

Also, are you going to have so many points in reaver that you can't get 18 in Paladin??? I suppose if you were going the 51pter route, you would.
