    Shadefallen and Faeblight are the two servers I play on. As far as I can tell, Fae is Guardian-dominated while Shade is a Defiant redoubt. That might just be my perspective because that’s the way round I have my characters, though.

    I currently have eight characters in Rift, three at level 50, two in the 30s and three in the teens-and-twenties. I briefly entertained the idea that Rift was different to other MMOs because of the soul set-up, but that’s patent rubbish. Even if I was prepared to use all the souls for one calling on the same character, which I’m not, that would still leave six races, two genders, four callings and two factions.

    It’s been useful to consider how it would be to play an MMO where there really was no point playing more than one character, even though Rift turns out not to be that MMO. I’m certain now that I’d have no interest in such a game. Playing one character would be like wearing the same clothes every day, and who’d want to do that?

    If you want to play on Faeblight as a Guardian I’d be happy to invite you to my guild. 😀

    As it is… I can totally see where you’re coming from on having a 50 cleric and not feeling the desire to play an alt since the cleric can more or less “do it all.” the last 2 T2 runs I’ve done have been 4 clerics + 1 rogue. Cleric tanking, cleric healing, me doing dps/off-heals (and often doing more hps than the MH, scarily enough), cleric dps, and rogue dps. And we steamrolled the places too. Mostly. Last boss in AP was a little bit of a pain, but not too terrible.

    That said, my warrior is level 49 now. I don’t mind tanking on my cleric, but find I like the warrior’s toolset a bit more for that. Even if the cleric is a completely capable tank.

    And my lowbie crafting alts are 300/300 in all 6 crafting professions now, so I really need to do more crafting rifts for plaques. TBh, I’m planning on leveling my rogue up next. I’m having a hard time falling in love with mages, but rogues have so many different play styles that I want to check out — range, tick tick boom, melee, stealth, teleporting tank, and more. They simply sound like a ton of fun to me. We’ll see. . . .
