Agree with Nark, Rift much better than WOW and pvp conquest is just insane mass brawl even if you don't use pvp. I plan on playing rift and GW2. and only playing these. with rift being the only mmo I subscribe to.
I'm on Icewatch shard at moment and that is a well pop shard........in fact I've had to que to get on at times!!!!!
Look me up
Oh and souls ect are going to get even more crazy with combo's in the expansion by looks of it.
