Rift: 1-60 Solo & Group Leveling Build & Guide


This is the build which I ran, to level from 1-60, and most of it solo leveling. However this can also be run in groups, dungeons, or with a friend. While it’s not super over-powered, I have been able to solo most mobs, and some elites. Best of all, you don’t need any of the expanded souls, so you can level up all the way to 60 with this, even if you are playing completely for free.

Focus first on Ranger, then the Assassin tree, when you start to run out of places to put points, place in Riftstalker tree. We go with Ranger for the ranged attacks and pet to tank for you. The Assassin tree is going to give you bonuses to damage as well as close combat fighting, and then perma-stealth with a repeatable use health “potion”. The Riftstalker tree to start, is only going to give you a small warp ability, but at 57 or so, it will also give you a health regen spell. This will be useful in PvE. 


You will use the boar, and in later levels the Greater Boar, to tank while you use your abilities.
