Coming to this from WoW

Sorry to mention WoW, I'm sure most Rift players are sick of WoW being mentioned all the time.

But i cba with WoW anymore and was thinking of giving this a try, but have a few questions:

1)Is it possible to get the most out of this game without paying a single penny? For what things will I need to pay for?

2) How is the game balancing compared to WoW?

3) Is the end-game as good as WoW's?

1) Nope. Buying stuff gets you to progress goals faster, but can get there without paying a penny. And top end gear can never be bought.

2) what do you mean more specifically?

3) there's loads more activities you can do to earn end game currency and rep than in wow. That variety is impressive.
Can't compare raiding yet.

4) made up a- casual pvp is much more fun and better imho.

ARGH! Someone gave me some goggles and a spork,
I don't know what the goggles do but I'm gouging my eyes out with the spork!

Because wow had ten million people. Be surprised if Rift has a million.
Younger, so people are less connected, and invested, so no need for forums, so tonnes of divergent boards haven't sprung to life. everyone just used the trion boards, moderated fairly too.

I'm addicted to artifact hunting. Btw, you can transfer shards life once a week, very nice to sample other servers.

WoW board is dead too if you don't count the troll topics.

Board is dead because Rift is bigger in Europe than America (this is mainly an American site) and Trion dropped the ball hard with Storm Legion.
