I've played WoW off and on since Vanilla throughout college and I find myself incredibly bored with it in my recent attempt to get back into it. Most of my friends who did play quit and I have no desire to buy the new expansion when it comes out, as my WoW days are probably over. I've read about Rift some and seem to get the impression it is similar to how WoW originally was, with better graphics, and that a majority of old school WoW players have migrated to Rift.
Does anyone have an opinion of the game or if it would be worth buying? I've tried SWTOR and wasn't that excited about it, so I want a new game to take up my free time!
