    Does anyone know if you can get the shamble stick from the summer event?

    • July 2, 2014 at 4:25 am #

      It should – it was available last year and I think the year before.

    when does it start

    • July 2, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

      World Events tend to begin at 3:30PM Server Time on Thursdays, so I’m guessing that’s when Summerfest will start.

    how did you get Glyph to find your Rift game folder? It won’t find my 20GB game contents folder.

    • July 2, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

      If you click on Settings it should show you all the games. Click on one and then link it to your game folder and that should be it. The first time it will ask to ‘Install’ but all it will do is link up your game folder with the Glyph launcher and you should be able to play shortly afterwards.

      If you are getting an error, try running the game in Administrator mode by right-clicking the game icon and choosing “Run as Administrator”.

      found the games, but the authenticator is the next big issue

      via email…
      Thank you for contacting us regarding RIFT.

      Unfortunately with the way the patcher is designed, you’ll have to make sure to log out from your machine any time you know someone might be able to access your computer. Anyone else will not be able to access your account from anywhere without having your account credentials. They would still need the authenticator number as well if they did somehow manage to get a hold of your credentials.

      That’s rather unnerving – but at least I only log into the game at home. I’m guessing anyone who players RIFT in a PC cafe/room would be much more concerned though.

      Thanks for the info Gizmovision! 😀
