RIFT 2.7 Hot Fix #4 – 05/21/14
A mysterious force working to rewrite history has turned to the most pivotal moment in all the Blood Storm war: the imprisonment of Maelforge. The victory that once united the broken armies of Telara is now in jeopardy and the fate of all Telara with it. Join the heroes of the Blood Storm war in a battle against extinction and fight for your very existence!

Unicornalia descends upon Telara on Thursday, 5/22 at 3:30 PM server time. It will remain until 3:30 PM server time on the following Thursday, 5/29!

If you are level 30 or higher you can find new daily quests in your home city that award a new currency, Sparkle Essences! These currencies can be used to purchase an Opal Unicorn mount from Mari, the PRI Quartermaster.

Limited Edition: Sparkle Troves, available on the Rift Store and from completing the achievement A Rainbow in the Dark, have a chance to contain an Onyx Unicorn mount. Participate in the new zone event Hooves and Horns in Moonshade Highlands for a chance at additonal Limited Edition: Sparkle Troves!

* You can now teleport to a different Shard by yourself without having to group with somebody on that Shard!
– Right-click on your player portrait while you are logged in game and look for a new option “Teleport to Shard” to see a list of available shards that you can teleport to.
– Note that you cannot teleport to another shard while you are in combat, in a Warfront, in a Conquest, or in a private map instance such as a Dimension.

* Fixed casting on target-of-target for the new Cleric abilities.
