Independence Week Celebration! 06/28-07/05

It’s Independence week in the United States – Prime players can earn the patriotic Golden Lifter mount in game! Live players, we’re rolling out some gorgeous new masks and backpacks just for you, plus the opportunity to upgrade the rest of your wardrobe at 25% off!

Summer starts NOW! This special promotion runs from June 28th through July 5th.

RIFT LIVE: Summer Fashion Fever!

Upgrade your style with 25% off all credit-based wardrobe items, all week long!

This summer’s style is all about the masks! We offer a look for every taste*:
⦁ NEW! Green Dragonian Mask
⦁ NEW! Gold Dragonian Mask

We know you love unusual backpack looks too, and these will be especially suited to the more Steampunk-oriented among you!
⦁ NEW! Empyrian Fuel Cell
⦁ NEW! Biofoundry Personal Power Pack

We’re bringing back some of your old favorites from Fashion Week as well!

RIFT PRIME: Earn Your Eagle!

The highly sought-after Golden Lifter features a glorious eagle motif. This bird is a scalable-speed mount, that trails a patriotic stream of red, white and blue. Even better, you can earn it for FREE through the Freedom Sparkle Festival challenge!

Talk to “Freedom Sparkle Sam” in Meridian or Sanctum to start your quest. You’ll collect sparkles by completing Expert Dungeons, winning Warfronts and completing Zone Events across Telara. The eagle is a creature of air, so you will earn even more freedom sparkles when you defeat Crucia’s forces from the Plane of Air! Even though Independence week may end in the US, you can still keep collecting freedom sparkles and turn in your quest to earn your mount. After July 5, you will no longer be able to pick up the quest, though.

*Note: we originally also included Mercutial’s Headdress and Lord Fionn’s Horned Crest as new items. However, these items were nabbed by some boglings and will be featured in a future RIFT update.

RIFT Challenge III Winners

RIFT’s third Prime Challenge ended on June 15, 2018. Now, find out who won!

Challenge III

From May 16, 2018 – June 15, 2018, Telarians were encouraged to seek out Confounded Contraptions on both RIFT Prime and Live, in addition to collecting 500 Twisted Artifacts on Prime. Players from all over participated for a chance to win great prizes.

The Seeker Winners

The Seeker portion of Challenge III asked players to collect all 100 Confounded Contraptions scattered across Mathosia. For Prime players, the prizes included the new title “The Confounded” and being the first to obtain Demonette Wings (both the mount and the wardrobe versions) ahead of the official RIFT store release. We didn’t leave Live players out of this one and they also had a chance to win the title “The Confounded”. Instead of wings they also received the much sought-after Silver Tier loyalty. Also, instead of three winners each, we decided to do five. This was largely in part due to the fact that we didn’t get enough participation in the Crafting Rifts Challenge portion of Challenge III.

First to Get The Seeker Winners (Prime)
  1. Nechi
  2. Nes
  3. Deadpool
  4. Jooliah
  5. Doranbolt

In addition to collecting Confounded Contraptions and completing Crafting Rifts, we also asked players to collect 500 Twisted Artifacts. For their efforts, they were awarded a brand new title: “The Farsighted”. This portion was only for Prime players.

First 500 Twisted Artifacts Winners (Prime)

Welcome to Alpha & Omega PTS!

THANK YOU for helping us test RIFT Live and Prime services. You help us a great deal, and always find things that help make the world of Telara better for all!

A few notes to keep in mind:
  • The PTS shards are not always available and may come down unexpectedly.
  • At times, the Dev team may make limited-time items available for testing purposes.
  • Always expect the unexpected on our PTS shards! The only diety on PTS servers is Murphy, and you know what they say about his Law!
  • Your character and items are at risk of random acts of code, natural and unnatural disasters and general mayhem. On the other hand, you’ll get to see and try new content, items and balance passes before anyone else!

Please use the Public Test Shard section of the RIFT Forums for your feedback!

A number of folks have been confused by Alpha and Omega; here’s what they are and how you get to them both!

ALPHA is the Public Test Shard (PTS) for RIFT Live.

To access Alpha, start Glyph, then select RIFT on the left, then select PTS from the dropdown at upper right.
You can copy characters from Live servers to Alpha. Launch the Glyph client and select RIFT. Log in to character select, choose the target character, click the ‘Transfer’ button and select “Copy to PTS”. Next time you load the Alpha Test shard your character will be available for you to use. Once you are “cloned” on PTS, that character can be changed around without affecting your original character in any way.
Note: credits are shared between live shards and the PTS. This means that any credits you spend on the PTS will be deducted from your credits on live shards, so be careful when buying items from the store!

OMEGA is the Public Test Shard (PTS) for RIFT Prime.

To access Omega, start Glyph, select RIFT PRIME on the left, then select PTS from the dropdown at upper right.
You cannot copy Live or Prime characters to Omega. Instead, we provide NPCs on Omega to provide you with a level 50 boost and some start-up gear.

Get Ready to Ride

Check out RIFT’s newest mount and get ready to #ShowUsYourSnail.

Apocalyptic Snail Rush

The Plane of Earth contains vast desert wastes left behind by species such as the Architects. Existence can be difficult there, even for hardy species such as ogres. Some turn to an ascetic life contemplating the path of the Cosmic Rhinoceros, while others who have not given up their desire for acquiring plunder become brutal raiders. These ogre raiders travel the wastes on their fearsome Apocalypse Snails, one of the few other creatures that can both survive in the wastes, and carry the tremendous bulk of the ogre raiders, and their prodigious plunder. A number of these mounts have traveled through the rifts and have become prized by collectors who admire the wasteland chic desire, and how the snails will eat anything, often to the detriment of their keepers.

This all-new, totally badass Burning Apocalypse Snail mount is on the Live store now for 3,000 credits. It boasts a 160% speed but will match the fastest mount in your stable. Once purchased, it will be available on all characters across your account (Live only). Ride to glory, Ascended!
#ShowUsYourSnail Challenge

In honor of our new spiky friend, we welcome you to show off where you would take your new snail out in the real-world in our newest community challenge! Take the photo we have here of the snail and paste it into your IRL photo for a chance to win a new Apocalyptic Snail of your very own (only available on Live)! Get your pics in by 12:00 PM PDT on Monday, June 18, 2018. For complete details, check out the official Forum Post here.
