Rift takes place in the Planes of Telara. You must choose a shard (or server) to start playing Rift. Then you choose a faction, similar to WoW's Alliance and Horde Faction. In Rift, we also have 2 factions: Guardians and Defiant. There is no difference in which faction you choose except the races available to be played will be different just like in World of Warcraft. As Guardians, you can be the following races: Dwarves, High Elves, and Mathosians. Defiants can be the following races: Bahmi, Eth, and Kelari.
After choosing your race, you must now pick a class. In Rift, there are 4 classes: Warrior, Rogue, Mage, and Cleric. And within these 4 classes are 8 subclasses that make your character more unique. Leveling up to maximum level 50 will take a lot of gametime hours and accumulating favor and prestige for PvP rewards is also very time consuming.
