Just announced today, free weekly character transfers!

Gather your friends in RIFT and play anywhere, any time....

When the next major RIFT™ update hits early this summer, subscribers will be treated to a surprise – free character transfers. Trion Worlds announced today that with RIFT 1.3, players will have the ability to move to select servers in their territory once each week, taking all items, achievements, and titles with them. Additionally, guild leaders will be able to move their guild’s level and experience.

“MMOs are all about playing with your friends no matter which server they’re on, and that’s why we’re offering this as a free service to our subscribers,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer. “RIFT is both a game and a service, and adding free server transfers is just one more way we can make this the best possible MMO experience available.”

Whether you want to play with friends, check out a new server, or avoid queue times on highly populated servers, you’ll be free to move about Telara. As a part of this grand experiment, there will initially be no limits on the number of times you can transfer your characters or guild.

Character transfers will remain a free service for the foreseeable future, and could become a permanent addition to the RIFT experience. Subscribers will be able to perform the transfers inside of the game itself once the patch is live.

The RIFT Free Trial and Ascend-a-Friend programs are currently in full swing. For more information go to RIFT - MMO Free Trial - Dynamic Fantasy MMORPG and RIFT - Ascend-a-Friend Referral Program - Dynamic Fantasy MMORPG.

I did create a Cleric on the Perspice server but I did not like playing him, I will create a Defiant Mage and try and find other HWC players online.

I just took a mage and a cleric through the first few levels to check out playing styles and whatnot. I think if i can find at least someone to play with i will take up a healing cleric. i have always been partial to healing. If i dont end up finding anyone to play with, i will probably go with the mage.

My Guardian Rogue and Defiant Mage are on Perspice. I'm thinking I like Guardian a bit more, just due to the storyline.

Hmm we should get a guild started or something. My guild is dead so I would be happy to switch.
