Meet RIFT’s Maelstrom, complete with awesome shark-head

If anyone ever asks you what the best soul in RIFT might be, you now know that the answer is the Maelstrom. Is any other soul cool enough to have a shark headpiece? Does any other soul summon an ethereal magma shark to superimpose over your character’s head? The answer is “no,” which should be obvious because if the game had two souls doing that, there would be no good reason to play any other games. Thus, the upcoming Maelstrom is the absolute best, full stop.

What, you want to know what it actually does? That’s fair, it does have game mechanics outside of just having a cool shark head. Maelstrom DPS is based entirely around dealing damage through the combination of fire and water, creating scalding bursts of vapor and steam. You can check the Maelstrom soul out for yourself when patch 3.6 launches; the official preview also includes some fiction about the soul which somehow avoids just being a repetition of “you have a shark on your head, that is so cool.”

Update: RIFT has just posted more details about the pack to its Twitter account, including the price:

It’s like Victor Krum from Harry Potter!  Did you know they made a LEGO figure with a removable shark head?

A good human body should be headless.

I’ve always thought animal heads on human bodies look very stupid, this one confirmed that view.
