RIFT Gameplay – Dungeon Run

RPG Previews PC News MMO

The MMORPG RIFT, from developers TRION Worlds, has many core gameplay features and the one that we’ll be looking at in these clips is the dungeon run.

This dungeon is the second in the game but requires a solid amount of time leveling to reach. Deepstrike Mines, dubbed DSM by players, it has adventurers traverse a mine in order to stop some evils from gathering in there, or something. This entails walking in, killing a lot of stuff, killing some bosses, killing more stuff and killing the final boss. All the while, you’re collecting loot and items to further upgrade your character. Like in most MMORPGs, dungeons runs are usually one of the best ways to level and to obtain gear for your character.

The Dungeons in Rift can be a rewarding challenge for players in both terms of loot and experiential rewards. They involve teamwork, co-ordination and skill in order to overcome the many obstacles that players are to meet within the dungeon. Each dungeon is different and each offer different quests and quest rewards, which is a nice addition to already fairly nice package.

Gaming for as long as my memory serves me, probably longer.

    nice lil quirk to add in. again this game looks pretty sweet graphically and you get a feel the world is endless to explore, just not my sort of thing.

  • ropes

    While I never finished the game I say there is too much reliance on groups because I am player who loves soloing and you cannot solo even the start of the game. Dungeons require alot of teamwork and skill to get through and I just never want to put in the effort.

    I like the Rifts and Invasions though.

    The bosses and certain elite enemies do not see as epic as they should though.
