Late to the (PvP) party?

Trion hosted a PvP-focused Rift livestream on Friday* and I realized that I only played a handful of PvP games in Rift and that was years ago already. Thankfully, there is no open world PvP (there is a PvP server but I don't play on that one). On the contrary, both factions can play together … Continue reading Late to the (PvP) party?

Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

For months, I've been dreaming about making a tree house for my elf (Kelari, actually) rogue in Rift. I had chosen the Stone Grove already, but something didn't "click". It has a huge big tree in the middle and is just asking for a tree house to be built. Yet, nothing happened. I started by … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

Different game, same problem…

The last thing I wrote about Elder Scrolls Online was the complaint about the importance of race when choosing a class. I have gotten used to it now - I am still not a big fan of that system, though. But now the next problem emerges: I was happily playing my orc stamina sorcerer and … Continue reading Different game, same problem…

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

I have recently tried hopping into Elder Scrolls Online again and as I want a fresh start, I looked up guides and possible builds for the classes, to get a feeling for which class I may want to play. While I did that, I noticed that several posts about builds (e.g., this one or this … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

Personal Top 9 of 2016

I have seen several people and gaming sites make their "top x games of 2016" and when wondering which games I would put on my list, I thought: "Oh well, why not publish it here?" Maybe you're already sick of seeing these lists, but stay with me for a bit longer... my list is a … Continue reading Personal Top 9 of 2016

Recent experiences in Rift…

Starfall Prophecy, the latest Rift expansion, released on November 16. There has been some controversy about this expansion. The raid will not be released until later, but this was actually announced long before the expansion was released. After the expansion's launch, however, some features had to be disabled. Some of them have been enabled again, … Continue reading Recent experiences in Rift…

Making friends in Rift and Guild Wars 2

Last week, Rift's expansion "Starfall Prophecy" launched and yesterday, Guild Wars 2 released another content patch. Both games made me very happy as the patches feature my most favourite animal ever. Guess what animal that is! No, not dogs. Although that's true. Not rabbits either, although those are also my favourite animal. But no, my … Continue reading Making friends in Rift and Guild Wars 2

More Starfall Prophecy Tokens in Rift

When the expansion was first announced, Trion told us that we would get a Starfall Prophecy token each day when claiming our daily login chest. The main goal for players was to get Opie, a tiny squirrel mount that lets you reach artifacts more easily (if they're hidden in hard to reach places). But it … Continue reading More Starfall Prophecy Tokens in Rift

Rift: Waiting for the expansion with the primalist

Starfall Prophecy, the next expansion in Rift, will launch on November 16. That's not too far away now! So whenever I log in with my main character, my cleric, I just don't feel too motivated playing her. Since I bought the primalist last month, I thought I should probably play her a bit more. She … Continue reading Rift: Waiting for the expansion with the primalist

A few hours in Civilization VI

Bookahnerk had pre-purchased Civilization VI for himself and for me and we've both been looking forward to the game's release for weeks now. Since I've spent the week being sick while still going to work every day (thank you, painkillers, for helping me out), we spent Friday evening being very lazy. He brought home Subway … Continue reading A few hours in Civilization VI
