RIFT 2.7 Hot Fix #2 – 05/14/14

ASCEND A FRIEND
Have a friend you’d love to play RIFT with? Then we’ve got a program for you! The RIFT Ascend-a-Friend program has been improved and makes inviting your friends to join you in RIFT better than ever. In addition to the handy ability to summon your friend to your side, when your newly Ascended allies purchase something with game cards or money in RIFT, you’ll earn Referral Coins that are redeemable at the in-game store for special items like mounts, pets, costumes, and even REX. At this moment, it is not available in-game, but will be later today! Watch this post for updates.
