GamesRadar - The Ember Isle is big. Very big. How big? Well, if you take Rift's current largest zone, the Shimmersand, and double it in size, you get something that's about as large as the island that is set to debut in the MMO's 1.6 patch, From the Embers. It's also actually full of stuff – unlike Shimmersand, which is mostly empty desert. And the stuff it's full of... oh, the stuff it's full of.
