Argh! Been doing so much in Rift that I don’t know where to start with this post. Okay, how about..
I Finally Found A Guild
Yup. My biggest gripe with Rift to date has been how lonely I’ve felt. So I popped into the official forums to say hello, in passing I mentioned that I was looking for a friendly, active guild, and somebody came along (who incidentally has a blog as well and is lovely) and told me about their lovely guild. I popped into the guild finder, typed in a few words, within 20 minutes had a guild invite and I haven’t looked back since. They’re such a lovely bunch and they’re a good laugh. It seems to be quite a mature guild (age-wise, not mentally.. we were making fart jokes on Friday) which is cool, and there are lots of people who just enjoy the same things in the game. Which is: bumming around enjoying the scenery. We’ve even set up a little artifact circle between a few of us. Starting with the person that has the most artifacts so that they might be able to complete any elusive collections, and we pass them along to those with less (that would be me, mostly), and whatever’s left over is broken down into ribbons for the Dreamweavers. It’s a great idea. We’ve also been poking around each other’s dimensions, doing dungeons and chronicles and old raids, going after mounts on Ember Isle, all sorts. There’s always somebody up for something. It’s so much fun that I’ve finally settled on an MMO. *gasp*
Achievements, Carnivals and Housing.. Oh My!
There’s just so much I want to do in this game. You should know by now how much I love my achievements and there are over 20,000 points to be collecting. And where there are achievements, there are mounts and pets and titles and cosmetic gear. In fact, at present there is an event on. The Carnival of the Ascended. I believe it’s the anniversary of Rift’s release, which is pretty nice, and there are mounts, pets, dimension items, titles, and of course, points. I’m just one more achievement away from another mount! One lady in my guild already has it (crazy lady!) and it’s kinda cool. A mechanical spider thing.
I also bought myself a new dimension. I wanted something a little more.. mossy. So I bought Three Springs. It was 300 platinum but soo worth it. I love it. I’m not 100% sure what to do with it yet but I’ve been turning it into a new little home for Jaedia and want to make it cosy and magical in feel. And it’s huge! Any ideas are very welcome. Here are my beginnings, and believe me, it’s much bigger than just these few screenshots.
And what’s a house without a wardrobe? I’ve been poking around a little and finally found a gear set I quite like the look of for my Mage. (Please ignore the unfortunate armour choice of the white wizard behind me..)
Just A Wee ESO & WildStar Sidetrack..
I DON’T KNOW!! I’m so up and down with both of these games.. First I think: omgahbwjhflblfyrflbl! Then: meh.. And then I go back to: Oh that’s cool. Then: But.. eh.. Then: OH PRETTY. And I’m yo-yoing around so much I just don’t know if I should bother. I mean on the one hand, you know, new and shiny. But on the other I’m not feeling it 100% and I’m really happy in Rift right now.. There’s also the little issue of subscription fees. Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not against subscription fees. I just can’t afford to pay a subscription for a game I might play for just a few hours each month. I’ve happily subscribed to Rift because I love the patron bonuses and I’m playing it pretty much every day right now, but ESO I might play for a couple of hours per week. WildStar I’m not sure on at all. I just don’t know if I should bother.. but then I miss out on pre-order bonuses and if I change my mind later (like I did with FFXIV) I might very well regret it. I just don’t know if I should bother just yet..
Anyway, I’m off to Telara. Have a pile of stuff to do.
