RIFT‘s recommended preset builds have been in dire need of attention for, well, a while now. Since their implementation, in fact. For many souls, the majority of the preset choices aren’t optimal at all, and since Storm Legion, some don’t even work sort-of-optimally anymore. Trion finally realized that they really needed to do something about preset builds to help out newer players who are still trying to figure out the ins and outs of the game’s soul system. They’re going to be updating the presets with a little help from the community– in the form of a contest.
To enter, you’ll need to submit a build you created yourself as well as a whole bunch of information about the build regarding tips, recommended skills, hotbar layout, and even a guide that both the Trion team and players can reference if additional information is needed. The winners will receive their build in-game as well as their chosen name for the build and proper credit. There are also nifty RIFT prizes including mounts, Patron Passes, and unique titles.
The contest runs until December 3rd. For more info, check out the announcement post here.
