Should you be advernterous (or crazy) enough to partake in endgame raiding in Rift, please consider the following statement:
For you, raiding is all about getting the phattest, shiniest purpz, in the shortest time possible. Be ruthless, vindictive; willing to ransack guild banks, ninja dungeon loot, and cause deception and chaos at the drop of a hat.
If you agree with the above statement, then you are probably a member of the Rogue calling. Now, you might be thinking, I knows how to play rog! 12222222222212222222212222223… done. What do I win? But there is a problem here. You do not win anything until you prove yourself. To prove yourself, you must first learn to win at DPS meters, because DPS meters are fundamentally evil. To defeat these evil DPS meters, you must first assail them with raw, button mashing crits, until all trash mobs, bosses, and members of the opposing faction have been obliterated. Only then can you win at DPS.
