Sorry Nark only really just getting back to posting. never given up my rift sub unlike with the other mmo's. I think its best out at moment. which shard was you thinking of setting up on. Only prob I have with rift is a massive lag issue when in big battle's esp conquest. Ice seems to br 1 of the most populated shards at moment. I don't know if Olgit totaly got rid of orig guild you would have to ask him.
looking forward to expansion esp as get it free being on a yearly sub
