This sounds like the point of view of someone expecting a WoW clone, and hence went in looking for every little similar feature instead of, as others have said, embracing that which makes Rift it's own game and not just another WoW.
Personally I play both, but for me Rift provides a stronger sense of versatility in play styles and a much more mature player base for starters.
Just another WoW players perspective...
