In this article we are going to be looking at Rift Levelling guides and whether or not they can actually help with your journey into Telara.
Now the game has just been launched around the first of last month (March 2011) and already there are a quite a few levelling guides that cropped up out of the woodwork.
What Is A Rift Levelling Guide?
Let us first have a look at what a Rift Levelling guide is:
Normally these guides are designed by the top players of the game and as any good MMORG has a BETA what a lot of them do is work out the fastest levelling path through the game during the BETA.
There are normally other guides that cover PVP, and the best builds to make the guide more "solid".
The question is though:
"Do You Need A Rift Levelling Guide To Play The Game?"
The answer to this is of course No, however before you rule out the idea completely there are a couple of things that we have to run through:
Not all Rift Levelling guides are bad!
Although the hard part is finding a good one that will actually be quality information.
Some of the guides that I have seen are just collections of forum posts and this is bad as forum posts are of course free!
My advice to get around this problem is to look for a Rift guide that gives you videos.
If the Rift guide has videos it means that you are far more likely to be getting a guide that has been designed by an actual player.
You will be able to see the videos and this makes it a lot clearer when you are trying to level up fast.
Also you should make sure that any guide you have to pay for has an unconditional guarantee and then you can try it out and not have to worry if you think the quality is below par or it is not for you.
Of course you get the written guides and these are normally laid out with steps like:
1. Go here, do this, and then hand in this.
Underneath there will normally be a map showing you where to go that you can compare to the in-game maps to get around.
Although as mentioned above this guide also comes with video and this helps as you will be able to actually see the complete levelling path for Defiant and Guardian as well!
You don't want to skip ahead and ruin the game however if you follow the videos AS you are levelling with the written guide this can really help!
You don't need a levelling guide for Rift although a good one CAN help with your levelling time!
Just make sure it gives you videos and a full guarantee.
