No, it's a full game.

Its free, and even though you can by all means buy your armour and such it isnt pay to win. The highest tier gear is only available through hard work and weeks of blood and tears @,,,@...lol Store wise you can buy costume stuff and mounts, also the usually exp /rep bonus potions as well. Not really much pay to win really more pay to look good and do some things faster.

These people also forgot to mention F2P = No Full Auction House Capability. You can buy from AH but you can't post. You will have to farm out 1000 plat and get a "REX", or spend 10 bucks. Which is what I did (farmed out 1000 plat), but other than that... no traps cough etc. Don't bother trying to farm it out earlier, its much faster at 60. And btw they put that limitation up so there won't be free account bots farming and fudging the economy up.

Wow, you actually farmed for that?

Oh gawwd. I know its an option, but dayym...

I'd just give Trion $5 and consider it the 'purchase' of the game's basic functions. It's at least far beyond the 'Preferred' junk status of SWTOR.

I played this game for months before it hit steam. Totally free. There is a store to purchase different gear and mounts. Totally not necessary. You may have to drop a few bucks to add some inventory space.

Absolutely NO "pay-to-win" however. I'm so impressed with the game I've voluntarily dropped over 45 dollars on this games store just to support Trion.

I have been playing a few months and it really is free.

Its free. no tricks. There is a cash shop where you can buy better gear and so on. or pets or stuff what you cannot find a anywhere else. Best gear is still available

The best thing you can do is to buy a retail Rift game (if it is poossible and if it is around 5-10$) which should unlock you 5 char slots per shard, 2 extra bag slots and 1 month patron status, and i also think it grants full access to the AH. This is probably the best way to get out of the f2p "limits"

You can certainly pay for convenience like in any other F2P MMO (for stuff like boosts and the like), but my general understanding is that pretty much anything high tier has to be earned through gameplay. You can even buy the paid currency in the form of REX from other players using plat, though that will take some grinding to do.

Thanks guys for all the comments and tips. Im almost done with the first area of the game and it seems ok i still think neverwinter is better lol but rift is decent so far. maybe it gets better later
