New Artifact Sets

• Added three new Artifact sets. Collecting each one will be rewarded a Celebration Chest containing, among other items, 4 Auroral Doubloons!

Our Overlord
– Completing a 4-hour Carnival Minion Mission has a 50% chance to drop a Celebration Bag for Overlords that will grant a random artifact of this set.

Hero Generation
– Among the rewards for killing one of the Carnival IA bosses, players will receive a Celebration Bag for Adventurers that will grant a random artifact of this set.

Pinata Candy
– Hunt Pinatas across Telara for a 50% chance to drop a Celebration Bag for Pinata Hunters that will grant a random artifact of this set.

Collect and complete all the three new artifact sets to earn the True Veteran achievement, which will give the “Elder” prefix title and 100 platinum.

New Minion

• Uncover the story of the old Ascended Trillian Lockwert by acquiring its Minion Card
– Upon collecting it, a chain of 11 Minion Missions will be unlocked. Complete them all to acquire 5 new Minions, 4 collectible journal entries with Trillians story, and some additional Carnival of the Ascended currency!
– Get the full group to level 25 to unlock the “Long-lived” suffix Title through an achievement.

Updated LootTables

• The Pinata Prize Bags obtained in Carnival IAs can now drop some of the pets added during the Carnival of the Ascended in 2020!

New Items

• Support your faction! Obtain one of the Guardian Valmeras or the Defiant Warhorses with Auroral Doubloons or Credits to show your support and unlock an exclusive title through an achievement.

• Complement your faction looks with the Ascended Guardian or Defiant Wings. Or be a proud Telaran with the Tenth Anniversary Cape.

• The new Tenth Anniversary Cake will grant you a raid consumable granting 100 Endurance and it was modeled after the real Rift Release Cake that the studio made 10 years ago for the launch! Also available as a Dimensional item to sweeten your home.

• Ever wanted to trick others to be Unicorns and join your cavalry? The Fancy Celebration Cake can be placed for everyone to turn into Carnival Unicorns and ride along with you and will grant a special achievement with a vanity unlock: the Celebration Ruff!


• Store – Fixed an issue with older Carnival Dimensional items not appearing unless all class types were selected.

• Dimension – Floating Platform Device no longer duplicates itself visually when rotating the item in a dimension.

• Mystic Archer – Legendary Ride the Wind now reduces the cast time of Summoning Quiver as expected.

• Oracle – Prevented an exploit where Legendary Insignia of Blood could be triggered with non-damaging abilities.

What are you waiting for? Come and celebrate with us! Happy birthday, Rift!
