101th Reason Why Steph Needs a New Job  
So yesterday after my career fair, I was tiiiired because being bright and shiny and ~interesting~ to potential employers can be draining (also, was wearing heels) and eager to get down with the install of the Rift beta (Scott gave me a key! <3) so that I could try it out. I'd heard good things and I'd heard bad things and dammit, I wanted to know for myself!

Anyway, didn't happen because I found out I had to work. Joie.

The shift itself wasn't too terribly bad... the one manager I terribly dislike was only around for half an hour, and the shift itself moved along at a decent pace. I bruised my knuckle badly, but it was my own fault (I think, I don't actually remember how I did it) and everything was otherwise okay. One of my jobs for the night was to wipe down the front doors because they are glass and people leave greasy hand prints all over them. Easy enough.

And yet while I was up front squatting down to wipe one of the other doors (little kid hands), this guy comes up behind me on his way out, reaches down underneath the tail of my shirt to snap my thong and then leer at me, saying "Definitely liking the uniform, honey."

Wat. WAT.

I don't know if I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't turn around and deck him, or just relieved. I just stood there with super death glare that actually made him go all shifty-eyed, and when I said "Don't you dare touch me again or I'm going back inside and raising you hell." he scurried off like a mouse.

I am still so, so mixed on RIFT. The Guardian quest line was driving me nuts, but I'm liking the Defiant side much better. My Defiant is Batumaa on Greybriar if you ever get around to it. :D And if the server stops being so overloaded I can't play. XD

I haven't gotten far on either. I've got, like, a level 8 Guardian elf chick in Faeblight, and a level 3 Defiant human in the... something Silk server.

So far though, idk, I haven't found anything about it that really wows me and makes me think it's so different and ingenious and new to be worth the $60 price tag Steam's slapped on it. I enjoyed it well enough, but not to the point where I'm going yes. I'mma buy this. Like now.

... you know, I think my Guardian is on Faeblight, too. XD But yeah, it's fun and all, but not at the prices they want to charge. And the running animation just bugs the shit out of me. :p And the fact that it's -always- the middle of a bright sunny day, until you step into rifts, footholds, or there's one area in Freemarch that's randomly got a different atmosphere.

.. yes, I know, I'm nitpicking. XD

As far as the other thing, I still can't wrap my brain around that as something that actually happened. I mean, what kind of person DOES that??

Is it now? :O Names! Even though... I dunno when I'll have time to go poking around in the game again. Got work tonight, stuff to do during the day... sigh~

But yeah, that didn't strike me so much since I only played a couple hours' worth. I've never played WoW but from what I hear, it's about the same as this or better. *shruuuuug* And hey, nitpickings are what make or break a game sometimes. I know for a fact the "automatic" switching between long-range and melee for my rogue bugged all hell out of me... I was standing there for a good 30 seconds with some giant troll thing whaling on me that I couldn't hit back with a bow going "So you know what would be good right about now? SOME DAGGERS."

And ugh, I know. It was bizarre in a lifetime of crazy things. @.@;

Mirai, level 17 Ranger/Riftstalker ... I don't remember what her third soul is and don't know that I feel like logging on to her right now to find out. XD

The graphics are about equal, just different style. Customization is a little more indepth in RIFT, especially since you can dye your armor. Movement has been the biggest difference - I have a shit time of it if something attacks me from behind in RIFT and targetting is kind of a pain in the ass sometimes. Also, said ranger keeps pulling threat off her pet, unlike my Defiant mage (warlock/necromancer/chloromancer) and -her- pet. Mirai has gone through soooo many maces, daggers, and swords because of how much melee she's doing, which just ... I have hunters in WoW and after awhile, the only reason for paying attention to their melee weapons was for stats boosts, not cuz they were USING them. :p

I dunno, maybe I'd enjoy Guardian side more with a different character class. But they're so damn preachy...

Ugh yes, I keep trying to run away a little so I can get some distance for shooting, but I keep getting shot in the back and turning back around is a pain. I kept thinking "if it's this annoying when I'm just fighting little baby mutants..."

And heh, yeah I've been seeing some of that. I played through the Defiant opening first before the Guardian one and I laughed that nowhere so far that I've seen in that quest that they say "well, maybe that was a bit of a fuck-up on our part, blowing up all their shit..."

'Course from what I've heard of pvp, that would never have done.

Stuck on that last bit there, because WHAT. WHO THE FUCK DOES SHIT LIKE THAT?! FUCKING ASSHOLE. I wish you'd decked him. D:

As do I, but I suppose in some ways it's better... fewer repercussions this way, unless he comes back. And if he does... *cracks knuckles*

I feel your pain.

Hehe I had another shift last night at the same place where I had to do the same job. I got weird twitchy feelings all the time that I was cleaning--mmm mmm paranoia.
