The RIFT beta continues this weekend with the next beta event, Planar War, which is set to begin Friday, Feb. 4, 2011 at 10:00 AM PST (18:00 GMT), and run through 10:00 AM (18:00 GMT) on Monday, Feb. 7, 2011.
If you were in Beta 5, you should be getting a confirmation email that Beta 6 is available to you. Emails are slow going out, but they are coming. If you played in Beta 5 you should be getting an invite for Beta 6. Once you see your email, login and patch up, it's about 165 megs.
Guild: Giant Communist Robots
If you want to be a guild officer at launch, we can always use volunteers. It's mainly for maintenance, etc and not prestige. All members can accept/turn in guild requests, officers will have a few additional abilities like invites/demoting, etc. If someone wants to specifically be in charge of Raids for end game content and has experience doing this, speak up. I have zero desire to handle Raid content and want someone with a passion for it. People with alpha or beta experience tend to be best for this kind of thing and I prefer the LotRO method of running a guild which is high on help/fun and low on stupid/drama.
