How to get from level 50-60 in 4-6 hours (Warning: 160% XP Vials Required)

My baby mage is going to be 50 soon so this seems like a very good leveling strategy. I do have one question: Some people recommend hitting the initial Storm legion zones at 48 instead of 50 to get a boosted rate of XP.

What are you thoughts on that?

My concern is that it'll end up costing me more time having to kill the level 50 SL mobs while I'm 2 levels below them. But with the 160% (or 200%) Xp boost, that could end up being quite effective.

 

Suggested specs, unfortunately I don't have any guides up for these leveling specs but if I get 3+ requests for a certain guide, I'll probably make it:

Warrior:
51 Tempest/ 4 Warlord/11 Riftblade
51 Riftblade/4 Warlord/11 Tempest (If no Storm Legion souls, replace Tempest with paragon)
51 Champion/11 Warlord/4 Paragon

Mage
51 Harbinger/11 Chloromancer/4 Elementalist
51 Elementalist/11 Chloromancer/4 Necromancer
51 Pyromancer/11 Chloromancer/4 Harbinger (4 Archon if no SL souls)

Cleric:
51 Shaman/15 Defiler/0 Justicar (51 Shaman/9 Druid/6 Justicar if no SL souls)
51 Druid/9 Shaman/6 Justicar
51 Inquisitor/15 Defiler/0 Justicar (51 Inquis/6 Purifier/9 Justicar if no SL souls)

Rogue:
41 Nightblade/21 Riftstalker/ 4 Tacticianhttp://forums.riftgame.com/game-discu...
51 Marksman/11 Riftstalker/4 Tactician (4 Saboteur if no SL souls)
51 Ranger/11 Riftstalker/4 Tactician (4 Saboteur if no SL souls)

The One Level 60 Guide - daily routine



I've been 60 for a while, but haven't really done too much research into what I should actually be doing with my time other than questing and zone events.

Still might need to work a bit at getting better with chronicles, but I can at least bang out the other dailies like nobody's business (I've randomly grabbed Ashora dailies while passing through, but never included it as a part of my routine).

Thoughts on the Dendrome weeklies? My computer is crap, so I've only forced myself to suffer through the lag a handful of times), but I guess if I want to get serious, I should consider adding those into the rotation...

Rift Power Levellign Guide


Running 61 harb build like on my YouTube. Didn't realise leaving them dead gave xp. Worth checking


 


 A friend of mine discovered that if the low level person dies in the first room you can leave them there for the entire dungeon and everything you kill will still grant them xp. Also the person does not need to beat the starter zone. They can be level 1, then invite to the party and they will still be ported into the dungeon. When we power level we kill all the adds that we can as we fell they give good xp. But still pretty much the same concept we use :)

I've been taking a lot of screenshots whilst playing recently. I thought i'd show you guys, I think this game is beautiful!

You can sign up on tumblr with a username specifically for rift. Then use RIFT Connect in game to connect to this tumblr account.

The game will automatically post to your tumblr whenever you earn an achievement, and you can also create a macro or type /tumblrpic in game to have it take a screenshot and post to Tumblr.

I've been doing this myself and it's definitely enjoyable looking at yourself 'progress', plus it's a good place to have your favorite screenshots just on display. Every once in a while I'll just stop and stare at the scenery, then click my macro to take a shot.

Back when I first started playing this game, I had my Twitter account hooked up to Rift, so that every time I earned an achievement, it tweeted the achievement name and a screenshot of what I was doing at the time. I've got some really old images on there, but I ended up turning it off because it spammed my twitter feed a bit too much :P

Climbing in Rift

It takes real skill to judge the slope from afar... and if you judge it wrong, your pride gets in the way.

3-4 minutes later "Ah hA! I knew I could jump it!"

Rift isn't the clearest on map appearances or slopes. One of the first times I was in Ashora, I was going to the southwest and I, from looking at the map, assumed that it was nothing much. Next thing I know, I've ended up at the bottom of a pit which I had to spend about a minute riding around to get out of it.

There usually is a way up slopes/mountains, but there are times where it just won't happen.



Every goddamn MMO. But to be fair, in Rift, I was able to be server first for a ton of stuff because I climbed over a mountain range in the first week of the game, and ended up in the middle of nowhere.

I also ended up in a location known only as "Telara" rather than a location on the map.

PSA: Sell Grey Items ANYWHERE



Stumbled upon this useful feature so forgive me if it has already been mentioned:

RIFT's new Store allows you to sell your Gray trash items anywhere; i.e., you do not have to visit a vendor NPC. To do this, open up the RIFT Store and click on any of the categories (i.e., Services, Boosts, Equipment). Now notice the Sell Grey Items button on the bottom, to the right of the Buy Back tab.

Coming from WoW and want to know what class will fit you? I made a guide just for you.


This is a good start for people. It's important to note, though, that not all Rift specs are meant to be used for the same thing. Stormcaller is an AoE soul almost exclusively. Thunderchickens would be well advised to take that into consideration. On the other hand, since there are so many role slots, you don't have to pidgeon hole yourself. For example, Rift mage encompases Warlock, Shadow Priest, Thunderchicken, Fire Mage and Ele Shaman all at the same time. Until you start to raid, you can probably come up with a spec that will closely associate with the play style of any of those specs from Wow. As you learn about Rift though, you'll see how it diverges and you'll shrug off the WoW paradigms.
