Rift is a fantasy MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) that was first released in 2011. The game is set in Telara, a fantasy world that is the center of five elemental planes (Death, Life, Fire, Water, and Earth). At the beginning of the game, players are free to choose one of the four character classes: Mage, Cleric, Rogue, and Warrior. Players can level up their characters with the use of points that are earned when playing the game. The character’s physical attributes can also be customized (hair, gender, facial features, skin colors, etc). Characters have five wardrobe slots, which can carry gloves, boots, and chest pieces.
The aim of the game is to defeat the monsters to prevent them from invading certain points in the map. Monsters come out when Rifts occur. Rifts represent instability and monsters spawn several monsters that will begin to attack important locations. Players have the option to kill all the spawned monsters or to close the Rift in order to prevent other monsters from spawning.
Rift offers thousands of weapons. The weapons are categorized in different classes according to their availability. The weapons classes are common, rare, uncommon, relic, and epic. Weapons that can be used are axes, wands, shields, maces, and bows.
