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

Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island III

I just realized that the last time I showed my Tempest Island dimension was almost one year ago. I did not add too much to the main rooms on the lower floor of the house. The kitchen got a little kitten and some more bottles, mugs and the like. The stove got some control "knobs". The … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island III

Rift Housing: Stone Grove

My newest housing project is "Stone Grove". I want to build a house up in the trees. I guess I'll also have to plant a few more trees, as the ones existing in the dimension only look strong on the ground, but get too thin up there. Anyway, it is currently a mess and I … Continue reading Rift Housing: Stone Grove

Rift and Trove are giving me… SAB?

Us poor Guild Wars 2 players have been yearning to set foot into SAB (Super Adventure Box) again for months now and it doesn't look as if we'd get it back any time soon. Now Rift and Trove (both developed by Trion) have one of their special cross-promotions again. If you play Rift, you can … Continue reading Rift and Trove are giving me… SAB?

Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island II

It has been one week since I showed you my newly acquired dimension "Tempest Island". Don't worry, this will not be a weekly column. I am sure building will slow down soon anyway. Right now, there are just so many parts of the island that I want and need to fill, that it's growing so … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island II

Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island

For weeks, I'd been waiting for patch 3.3 to arrive in Rift. With it came new dimensions and I had set my eyes on "Tempest Island". I used to build in "Faen's Retreat" but some things in there annoyed me a bit. While I do like the "oasis feeling" that it gives, I would have … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island

My personal oasis in Rift (December 2014)

The last time I have shown you my dimension was in November after the expansion had landed in Rift bringing with it the minion system which led to an influx of dimension items. I'm still more or less drowning in them, but I'm also slowly getting a better feeling for the variety of items and … Continue reading My personal oasis in Rift (December 2014)

My personal oasis in Rift

With the new expansion, Rift added the "Minions" mini game. I won't go into how the "game" - let's rather call it "activity" - works. I will save that for a later time. But there are dimension adventures where you get dimension items and can even get keys for dimensions (more on how dimensions work … Continue reading My personal oasis in Rift

Nightmare Tide CE’s dimension items and Bloop

With the expansion being postponed, my plans to play said expansion during my vacation (it was a coincidence that my 5 day vacation was exactly when the expansion should have been released. I thankfully did not take days off to play that one! ^^) were almost cancelled. That is, until I realized that the expansion … Continue reading Nightmare Tide CE’s dimension items and Bloop

Housing in MMOs: Rift

This is part 3 of the series "Housing in MMOs". After looking at Lord of the Rings Online and Aion, I will focus on Rift today. The most important difference to other games is that you do not get a "house" in Rift. You get a "dimension". This dimension is a small instanced map of … Continue reading Housing in MMOs: Rift
