Rift LFG Tool – How to Get Groups

Rift LFG Tool – How to Get Groups

The key to finding groups in Rift is based on the four roles available. Each role has different requirements, but all are needed in a complete group. Specifically, each group is made of 2 DPS, 1 Utility, 1 Tank, and 1 Healer. The key then, is to be capable of filling as many of these positions as possible. This is done by choosing souls, in additional roles, that fill these gaps.

DPS – Damage Per Second

Damage per second is the most needed, but also the most plentiful, of all the roles. They key requirement to the DPS role is either Hit for warriors or rogues, or Focus for mages or clerics. Melee clerics, such as Justicars, Shamans, and Druids have an ability that allows Focus to be used as Hit. The Hit/Focus requirements, as per the LFG tool, are as listed below:

 

Hit/Focus

Regular Dungeon: 0

Tier 1: 50

Tier 2: 100

 

Healer – Keeping the Party Alive

Critical to every party is the role of healer. In dungeons, and especially against bosses, the job of healer can be stressful and rewarding. As a good healer, though, you will be one of two keys to any group. Unlike the other roles, however, this one does not have specific requirements with Focus, Hit, or Toughness.

 

Tank – Front Line of Defense

The other critical role of every party is the tank. A tank stands between the other party members and the danger of the monsters and mobs throughout the dungeon. There are several methods they use, some use dodge, others focus on block and parry, but their goal is to keep at the top of the hate list for each monster, and to stay alive long enough to kill the monster. Toughness is the key attribute for a tank role in dungeons, as it cuts down on the critical damage that monsters can deal. Hit (or Focus for Justicars) is also required to help do damage and maintain agro.

 

Toughness and Hit/Focus

Regular Dungeon: 0

Tier 1: 50

Tier 2: 100

 

Utility – The Non-Specialists

The last role is that of Utility. This position provides a lot of different things to a party from buffs to healing, and damage when required. To assist in their damage capacity, either Hit or Focus is expected.

 

Hit/Focus

Regular Dungeon: 0

Tier 1: 50

Tier 2: 100

 

Summary

Roles make up the groups in Rift, in normal dungeons, expert dungeons, and raids. All roles are needed, and the ability to fill multiple roles makes it that much easier to find a group. The LFG tool focuses on these roles, filling each position, and therefore the variation of these roles is how to get groups in Rift.
