RIFT's launch day is here! Are you ready? Check out everything you need to know about ZAM's databases, calculators, tools and more!
MMO gamers have come to expect resources like Wowhead to be available at or near release, so we’re here to make sure you have the same sort of tools and resources at your disposal. To make your life easier in the early days of RIFT, we’ve compiled a nice list of ZAM resources to utilize while you’re playing your first few hours of RIFT.
Further details can be found after the break, but if you just want to browse what we have to offer, feel free to examine the Soul Tree Calculator, Achievement Database, Ability Database, and Wiki at your own pace. Also, don’t forget to check out the Coming Soon! section to see what’s next up for the ZAM RIFT!
This tool operates much like Wowhead’s talent calculator and allows you to plot out what souls you’d like to use in RIFT and what points you will spend in those souls. With the number of options available in RIFT, this can be a life saver if you don’t want to sink extra money into re-speccing your character.
Once your build is perfected, a list of abilities that accompanies the souls displays at the bottom of the calculator, giving you a glimpse of what you’ll be able to accomplish in game.
Finally, the ability to link a build from the calculator gives you the option to show off your min-maxing skills to all your forum, chat, and Facebook friends. If you register and login to ZAM, you’ll also be able to comment and rate builds – so if you think your friends build is utter scat, you can let him know!
If you’re an achievement collector, this is definitely the tool for you. With a few options selected in the filter, you can search through the entire list of in-game achievements by categories like character advancement, PvP, dungeons, planes, and zones. Additionally, the list can be sorted by faction, so if you’re looking to show your pride and collect all the Defiant based achievements, that’s a totally viable option.
While you’re playing an MMO, it’s not always easy to figure out exactly what abilities would work best for you while you’re PvEing of PvPing, so we’ve gathered them all for you! Using our ability database let’s you quickly and easily locate exactly what abilities are used by souls, which we think is pretty handy.
If there’s any information that requires more of an explanation, you’ll find it in our RIFT-based wiki. From callings to races to factions, everything that a person might need to know about RIFT is either in our wiki or will shortly be included once the game has been released.
And there will definitely be more on its way within the next few days / weeks. We will have database listings for items, NPCs, top soul build lists, and much, much more! We’re the company that brought you Wowhead, so we will do everything in our power to make sure you get the top tier experience you’ve come to expect from the ZAM Network.
