Rift: Planes of Telara is barely lighting up the servers after launch and already we're looking at the first few guides for the game. Hundreds of people are out there playing the game and entertaining themselves with a slew of different content options – from the Warfronts to the Rifts to the end-game dungeons and raids. This is shaping up to be a BIG game and that's saying something when you consider how big a few other MMOs out there are.
But, how do the guides look? Are they useful or just tossed together to cash in on the quick release of the game? Some of the guides are okay for sure but others are a bit lacking. I see dozens of guides that just don't look that good. They are missing a lot of options and read more like official strategy guides (i.e. no strategies) than an actually useful guide.
But, there are a few that look decent, mainly Rift Secrets from Tony Sanders. This puppy is loaded with tips about how to defeat your opponents in PvP, how to level up quickly, and how to make a good chunk of Platinum in the game FAST. You're pretty much going to cruise through the game if you know what you are doing, and this guide shows you how to know exactly what you are doing.
I can't say which guide will be best, but I can say this game is awesome so you should get a guide as soon as possible and right now, the best one I see is Rift Secrets. Get on over to Tony's site and see what he has to offer.
