With all the drama gone, now the guild is all but dead, I moved my main to a raiding guild. I joined as a social member to start, but soon found I really did enjoy the raiding side of the game. I am by no means the best, but it really has perked my intrest in Rift again.
As I mentioned before, I am no leader, but it's good to see other member's off in different guilds, also enjoying themselves once more.
Rift is a great game, with plenty of content and free updates. I look forward to seeing what they will do next.
