Currency Reference

Glass Beads

Glass Beads are a limitless currency that you obtain from planar mobs via planar invasions, rifts, great hunts, raid rifts and zone events. If you don’t receive any glass beads from them, make sure they are at least Green to you by mentoring down to around the mobs’ level.

Prize Tickets

Prize Tickets are a limitless currency that you obtain from participating in Carnival Games located in Sanctum, Meridian, Shimmersand and Tempest Bay. Each Carnival Game has its own Repeatable Quests you can obtain from the various NPCs around the area.

Auroral Doubloons

These are a limited currency that you obtain from participating in the the Carnival of the Ascended. Each Phase of the World Event has a one-time quest that rewards this currency. Phase 1 provides 1; Phase 2 provides 2 leading to a total of 3 Auroral Doubloons obtainable during this event. [r]

Carnival Celebration Crate

Carnival 2014 has a Celebration Crate (lockbox) for 150 Prize Tickets (one of the Carnival currencies) or 400 Credits (360 Patron) each.

They contain an assortment of random Carnival pets, a chance for Dark Ice Essences and Dark Ice Necklaces (the ones from Fae Yule 2013), previous Carnival Mounts, an interactive item, an artifact and a very rare chance at a Knight Spider Mount.

Note: The Companion Pets are tradeable.

Some of the items that you can get are shown below:

Tito’s Trove Artifact Set

artifactsetcarnival

There’s an Artifact Set related to the Carnival of the Ascended that rewards 10x consumable versions of Tito’s Partini (which makes players in a large AoE region /dance if you have the Tito Companion Pet out).

Thus far the artifacts can be obtained from the Carnival Celebration Crate. It is unsure at this stage whether you can obtain the artifacts in other ways.

When you have a Tito companion pet out and use the Tito’s Partini consumable, you will be able to get everyone in a decent size radius to /victory. Each one of them will also have blue fireworks shooting out from underneath them.

Knight Spider Mount

There’s also a very rare chance to get a Knight Spider Mount. It looks like a Red/Black version of the Tindrel Mount. You can also get him from completing the “Come On and Jump On My Spider.” achievement found under World Events -> Carnival of the Ascended.

Note: the Companion Pets required as part of the meta achieve are tradeable, so you can check your Auction House to see if they have any of the missing pets.

Dark Ice Necklaces

The Carnival Celebration Crate has a chance at obtaining the Dark Ice Necklaces that available during Fae Yule 2013. Below are images of the necklaces for each class and their upgrades.

They are all upgraded using a Radiant Infinity Cell and a necklace drop from the Level 60 Tier 1 10-man Raid Intrepid: Drowned Halls.

Level 60 Relic Essences

carnivalessences1

There are new Carnival Level 60 “Enigmatic” Essences for each class  available at Rift Store -> World Event for 1,536 Glass Beads and 12,000 Planarite or 1,280 Credits (1,152 for Patron).

Interestingly they don’t have a Secondary Stat, but some of them may still prove useful – especially to those without BiS Greater Essences, Dark Ice Essences or Venerated Notoriety. That said, the Radiant Infinity Cell requirement is costly and you may be better off using a Radiant Infinity Cell on the new Fire Raid Rift Essences.
