For those of you who have played WoW, imagine this. You're questing in STV and suddenly you see a message, "Yohoho and a bottle of fuck you, pirates be attacking!" and the map gets flooded with pirates attacking cities and questing areas and everything. This is what happens in Rift. All the time. The questing hub you're in will randomly get attacked and you and everyone there will have to band together to defend it. It was a lot of fun. I have not had that much fun in a MMO in a long time (probably since my H LK kills).
Xit Woundz took some screen shots so I'll show you some.
|Each arrow is an invasion group.|
|I believe this is an invasion boss.|
I need a reason not to play this game when it comes out....
