KFGuides for Rift

KFG is a very good guide in my opinion, boasts a server first on Byriel with a total played time of 2 days 20hours.  They have an expert dungeon guide coming soon which I’m looking forward to checking out.
They have a few freebies on the site: Guide for beginners, Dungeon guide (non expert :P ), Warfront Guide and a Puzzle Guide (yes Rift has in-game puzzles).
  • Freebies on website
  • Very good guide
  • Has a NPC list
  • Only Defiant Guide
