This too will come to pass. Saying goodbye to Rift.

After 5 memorable years of playing Rift and having seen all the expansions I have decided to call it quits and focus my time that I do have to play on GW2. I have had a great time playing Rift and made some great friends along the way. Instead of badmouthing Trion and criticing their buisness model; Im just going to say thanks for the fun and enjoy the ton of money I paid for that experience. I no longer enjoy the game but I do miss the awesome people who I played Rift with. Gw2 for me is a new experience and I am enjoying the game as I learn and explore all the new things. Gaiscioch has a ton of members playing GW2 more in one day than I would see in a week playing Rift. GW2 is alive and vibrant as a game and this is what I want as a gamer. I have made some new friends in GW2 and as I learn I hope to take the up some leadership experiences and start hosting events in the future (2018). For me Rift was fun while it lasted and now that has come to pass. I tried to make it fun but in the end I knew it was time for me and Mango to move on. I hope as more players in the guild move on from Rift they find what they enjoy playing and maybe you just might log on to GW2 and find me and Mango in your group having a great time with other members of Gaiscioch.

Enjoy the next chapter of your adventures, El!  I know I have not been able to be online much these last two months due to RL, but my time in Rift was greatly improved because of the awesome players in our guild, such as you!  It was a real treat to be able to play the game with you, Mango and the other little tweetie who didn't chime in as much :).  

I totally get where you're coming from with Rift.  My absence from the game has not made my heart grow fonder...   I was there when it started and I've taken a few (much needed) breaks from it along the way. 

One such break a few years back led me over to GW2, where I do have a few level 80s representing "The Waiting Room", LOL, I mean Gaiscioch Na Anu.  I haven't been comfortable picking up the level 80s where I left off, you may find me loitering around Queensdale off and on, filling hearts along the way.  I hope our paths cross again soon! :)

One of the many reasons that I love Gaiscioch is that we can all remain together as a guild, regardless of which adventure we are currently experiencing.

I for one certainly know that GW2 will greatly benefit from you and Mango playing there. You have been missed in Rift but I also understand why you have moved on.

May only good things come your way. I still picture Mango sitting on your shoulder and you with an 'eye patch'.... hahaha

Good luck and only happy times ahead for you.

Eluveittie, I was in GW2 last night and saw you in game. You were doing something with Gma Fog. I didn't want to bother you, the group you were in seemed to be busy. But it was good to be able to see people from Rift still staying together. I am torn right now. I don't have time to play two games and be serious about it. I took the boost to level 80 in GW2 because I thought I would be just a casual, exploring around type and I didn't have to worry about armor and all that. Anyway, I think that I am getting hooked on GW2, I haven't played Rift for many days now, but I don't want to leave the few people left without support. Although the only thing left is Crafting and Criting on Sunday. Anyway, good to see you. I hope that you will be leading some groups around soon.
