    I've been a hardcore raider in Rift since their release of Hammerknell Fortress. Trion has put out some incredible, challenging content overall. With their Storm Legion expansion the raids were subpar and they are now turning to 100% public testing (which basically means 95% of your raid progression will occur on a test server). My expectation is that the game will die if they proceed with the public raid testing.

    I thought I would have nowhere to go in case Rift dies this summer, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover Wildstar.

    This excerpt really sold me on the philosophy of the raids here.

    In Rift I've written sixteen spec guides, and I hope to contribute to Wildstar in guides, theorycrafting, and general advancement of knowledge among the community.
    Kataryna and Zinn like this.

    I also cut my teeth (from HK) in Rift but left not long after SL released. They ripped the soul out of Rift and I fully expect them to go f2p before the end of the year. My main was a mage but I do remember using some of your guides for my cleric alt. I also remember you took a lot of <REDACTED> for holding them back as well but thats more reflective on the spoon-fed way the player-based turned out after most of the decent guilds followed VooDoo and left.

    Either way, good to see you on board.

    Ahov! glad to see you'll be theorycrafting in Wildstar; those of us from Rift really benefited from your Cleric guides.

    Ahov from Rift eh? I recognize the name but can't put my finger on which guild you were in. Possible Virus or Legion Unleashed? You were on Deepwood no?

    Also, you we're a cleric right?

    I think many people are hoping for this to be their new home. It incorporates most if not all features people that enjoy hard-core raiding are looking for. I really have high hopes for this!
