RIFT players have clocked 45,817 years of gameplay

There’s nothing like a good anniversary to brings out the infographic-making in developers, and so it is with RIFT’s fourth birthday. Trion Worlds posted a lengthy list of stats for the game today as well as a few giveaway codes (that are most certainly used up by now).

For instance, did you know that collectively, RIFT players have logged 45,817 years of game time? Or that the least popular race is Dwarf (9%)? Or that the most popular calling is the Rogue (28%)? Or that the most rare pet is a Loner hermit crab, with only 28 copies in-game? If nothing else, this infographic proves that the Defiant faction is the underdog by a whopping 8%.

You can check out the full infographic after the break.

Great for lore too, since the first bard was a dwarf woman.

*light-skinned elves.

I don’t like the noses of the high elves. It’s a weird sticking point, but there you go. They all have pug noses. Very dainty pug noses, but pug noses all the same.
Kelari on the other hand have bridges and tip angles that feel more graceful to me.
Also kelari are tropical dark elves, early in their lore they fled to the islands where they adapted and diversified in a land where grass skirts and tiki torches wouldn’t be out of place, how cool is that?

The design and storytelling in Nightmare Tide (3.0) is greater than that of Choco rift Rift, IMO, and for an expansion given away to anyone, that’s pretty amazing.

They do more in Rift than any of Trion’s other games, but they still unabashedly run cavalier with player trust in the pursuit of their wallets.

Lol! I have a similar issue with a friend that only rolls ‘light side’ characters. I can play either, but just prefer the look of dark-skinned Kelari, that said you can faction change and keep your favorite race if you wish, but his overzealous insistence on ‘light side only’ (which is silly considering Defiant and Guardian both have their share of brutal/ treacherous assholes), had left a bad taste in my mouth and madeit tough for me to play Guardian on Rift or Alliance on WoW back in the day.

You rely ought to, even just for the experience of swimming through pools of water that have vertical cut off planes, so that you can swim out and fall from a few stories up, or walk in at ground level and suddenly be immersed under 20 meters of water and buoyant.
Also there are the ‘ceiling seas’ mentioned in the infographic, very surreal in their own right.

Nope I wish there were more of these, for more games, more of the time. I wish games actually made these sorts of stats publicly accessible/ query-able as well. I’d love to be able to see how many times a particular mob has been killed, how many other people have a particular achievement/item/mount etc.

Wow that’s a really cool breakdown, go Rift! A wonderful mmo in its own right!
