Nightmare Tide Digital Edition Feature Image

Trion has announced the RIFT 3.0: Nightmare Tide Digital Collector’s Editions on their website! You can check them out when you log into the riftgame.com website and go to Store.

RIFT 3.0 Nightmare Tide Digital Collectors Editions

First up, the Nightmare Tide expansion is free. These digital collector’s editions however adds some exclusives that won’t affect your combat ability as well as stuff you can earn in-game by playing the game.

Packs are:

  • Typhoon Edition for $24.99 [Get 20,000 Loyalty] [r]
  • Infusion Edition for $49.99 [Get 50,000 Loyalty]
  • Ultimate Nightmare Edition for $149.99 [Get 150,000 Loyalty]

A few other things to note:

  • Packs are available for direct purchase, not Credits. [r] If you are from EU, you will get your items (if you purchase now) once your hotfix comes. [r]
  • The following items are available prior to 3.0: Accelerators, Thresher Mount, Abyssal Satchel and Abyssal Crab Combat Pet Skin.
  • If you have any questions, read on or check out CM Ocho’s ‘Nightmare Tide Collector’s Edition FAQ‘.
  • No Dream Soul Pack included in any of the Digital Editions.

Note: Everything is account-wide unless stated otherwise.

The Typhoon Edition

The Typhoon Edition costs $24.99 and comes with:

  • 2 New Equipment Slots*
  • Exclusive Nightmare Tide Bag Slot*
  • Manugo League Membership
  • Planewalker: Water
  • Title: the Typhoon
  • 20,000 Loyalty [r]

*Benefits don’t stack if you already bought a Nightmare Tide Digital Edition (i.e., just a disclaimer so you don’t buy 10x copies thinking it’ll get you 20x equipment slots).

2 New Equipment Slots

New Earrings UI

New Earrings UI

These are 2 earring slots. Purchasing a digital edition gives account-wide unlock of the two earring slots.

  • Earrings will not be visible so they act like rings. Sorry fashionistas!

In-Game Option: You can also unlock each earring slot per character in-game using currency similar to Infinity Stones (so not IS, but likely the new Level 61+ version of it). [r] These are not purchasable with Credits. [r]

Exclusive Nightmare Tide Bag Slot

Exclusive Bag Slot Unlock

Exclusive Bag Slot Unlock

This adds a new bag slot (thus bringing max to 8, up from current 7). Exclusive? Yes, this will not be purchasable in-game. Unlocked for all chars. Gingers has reworked the bag bar UI to allow for this (visible on PTS). [r]

[Here’s something to consider. PvP and PvE gear are merging so you’ll need less space for gear in your bags. Also, Savant crafting/gathering only has one type of node per craft (6 for fish), so you’ll only need around half the space you currently use for crafting/gathering.

That said, an extra inventory slot will let you send all your fluff/interactive items back on your main (instead of hiding it on alts or bank).]

Manugo League Membership

Allows you to earn a variety of equipment and crafting recipes as you gain ranks in this new notoriety. [r]

In-Game Option: The main difference between ‘membership’ (buying a Digital Edition) and ‘non-membership’ (not buying a Digital Edition) is that members earn reputation at a faster rate. [r]

Planewalker: Water

Allows you to equip certain planar gear from the Plane of Water.

  • “Roughly 15-20% of the gear in NT will require” this attunement.
  • Spread through all gear levels.
  • No gear type is exclusive to players with Planewalker: Water attunement.
  • Account-wide unlock.

In-Game Option: You can also gain this Planewalker: Water attunement in-game via ‘Abyssal Crusader’s Marks’ earned by completing Expert Level 65 dungeons. This will unlock per char. [r]

Title: the Typhoon

Grants the suffix title “the Typhoon”.


The Infusion Edition

The Infusion Edition costs $49.99 and comes with:

  • 2 New Equipment Slots*
  • Exclusive Nightmare Tide Bag Slot*
  • Manugo League Membership
  • Planewalker: Water
  • Title: the Typhoon
  • “Instant Level 60”
  • Additional Bank Vault Slot*
  • Aquatic Dimension Pack
  • Exclusive Bloop the Jellyfish Companion Pet
  • Additional Minion Slot*
  • Nightmare Portrait
  • Shimmering Nightmare Orb
  • 2 Void Source Accelerators – available immediately!
  • 2 Abyssal Crusader’s Accelerators
  • Delving Diver’s Helm
  • 50,000 Loyalty [r]

*Benefits don’t stack if you already bought a Nightmare Tide Digital Edition (i.e., just a disclaimer so you don’t buy 10x copies thinking it’ll get you 20x equipment slots).

“Instant Level 60”

Instant Level 60 Boost Bundle

Instant Level 60 Boost Bundle

Consumable used to boost one character to Level 60 ‘complete with gear’.

Full information on the Instant Level 60 Boost Bundle is available here.

Additional Bank Vault Slot

As the name implies, it is an additional bank vault slot. Exclusive to the Digital Edition packs. Note that bank vaults (besides your default one), do not have additional bank bag slots.

Aquatic Dimension Pack

Aquatic Dimension Pack contains:

  • Glass-Bellied Mermaid Statue
  • Pair of Jellyfish Tanks
  • A Rusted Ship (very big)

You will receive a second minion slot as well as an exclusive Bloop Minion.

In-Game Option: Additional minion slots are purchased in-game for Credits-only. These are applied account-wide. [r]

Note: Minion Slots are not your Minions List. You can have a ton of Minions. Minion Slots are the ‘adventure/missions slots’ – so basically the amount of missions you can send your Minions to do at any one time. [r]

Shimmering Nightmare Orb

An Infinite-use Dream Orb. Daglar stated the stats won’t be better than existing or future dream orbs. [r]

    going for the infusion edition. The ultimate is so expensive…. 😦
    Too sad i wont get it soon the Thresher mount,at least its confirmed by Daglat that there gonna be other Thresher mounts in game sometime, only the cobalt thresher is exclusive

    • September 3, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

      Yea, I see a few people on the mount already. 😛 Phexlar@Laethys modeled the mount so we’ve got an in-game screen of it (updated in the article just then).

      I’m also seeing a lot of shard first for Tier 2 Raid gear (thanks to the removal of the raid-dropped upgrade component). Now you only need ESM for it.

    Anyone find a picture of the Abyssal Crab combat pet skin? I’m intrigued….

    And also, do you know if the Accelerators are per toon or per account?

    • September 3, 2014 at 3:40 pm #

      Should be available to every character like all the other items. But they are Bind on Pickup so you can’t trade them to your other chars.

    I hope they add in a way to buy Planewalker: Water for our alts so we only have to level up 60-65 without that gear once. I’d much prefer they limited the gear to being 65 only, or gave a lower level way to unlock it – I sincerely hope they reconsider, as I think seeing all those unequippable items will be a big let down. The rest is cool though, esp the creepy portrait and the unlimited dye. I hope there’s a way to get the Shimmering Nightmare Orb in game as well though – sooo much plat to be saved.

    • September 3, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

      I would imagine that months down the line they might make it BoA like they eventually did with Notoriety gear, runes and essences. Trion likes to nerf content and buff players over time – so those pushing the content won’t finish too fast but those catching up don’t take too long either.

      As for the Shimmering Nightmare Orb – it has a green border and the current speculation is that it won’t have the best stats. It’s probably something to be used for a quick boost when 3.0 hits and so you can put dream orbs on all your leveling gear as you quickly replace them. However, for the best Dream Orb stats, you’ll probably want the one-use versions (perhaps once you get your first NT raid gear). More casual players – however – would probably still greatly benefit from the Shimmering Nightmare Orb.

      Awesome! I’ve added it in to the post. Thanks to both of you for the info! 😀

    The “Void Source Accelerator” description states: “Used to upgrade goods purchased from World Gear Merchant”. Yet is is used to upgrade T2 raid relic gear??
    Does that mean that we will be able to buy T2 raid relic gear from the World Gear Merchant when Rift 3.0 hits?

    • September 4, 2014 at 5:39 am #

      The description might just be meant for 3.0 but they decided to release it early. They might not have added it into the tooltip so as to not confuse players when they see this item for upgradeable items in 3.0. It could be possible that the World Gear merchant ends up selling Level 65 world gear that can upgrade to gear with Tier 3-like stats.

      They did state that the best gear in Storm Legion (Tier 3 Relics) would take players to “Level 65 and a bit beyond” so it isn’t too farfetched to think that upgraded Level 65 World Gear would be around what Level 60 Tier 3 gear is like.

    is it me or does the infusion edition seem like the best deal?

    • September 4, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

      It’s looking that way. The Ultimate Nightmare Edition mainly adds some fluff and stuff that players might not be interested in.

      • Abyssal Satchel 36-slot: Another 36-slotter. Once you add the extra bag slot, how much space do you need really? And Outfitter – do they have new higher-slot bags in 3.0? That’s something to consider. So not all that important.
      • Cobalt Thresher Mount: Amphibious mount, but there will be upgrade pieces for Crocnards and other mounts, and other versions of the Thresher Mount available in the future. Optional.
      • Dimension Shadow Scion: Don’t dimension? No use. And it isn’t an exclusive so you could probably get it in-game.
      • Planewalker’s Call: This is a nice addition that would help a lot for non-PvPers to summon into a raid, dungeon or open world activity. That said there’s the Summon Friend ability and usually you only need to pull in one or two players. Also, Rift Group Summons already exist so it’s not like you’ll be using this to summon to a Nightmare Rift.
      • Prefix Title: Planewalker. Completely optional.
      • Nightmare Cosmetic Weapons: Unless they are exclusive, you can probably get these in-game through loot and mark gear. This would be more of a ‘get it early’-type benefit.
      • Unlimited Nightmare Black Dye: Is it ‘black’, ‘exceptionally black’ or a new ‘nightmare black’ color? Could have its uses – but again you’ll have to weight that up against $150.
      • Combat Pet Skin: Abyssal Crab: Completely optional.
      • 150k loyalty: Nice, but the Infusion Edition’s $50 gives loyalty at the same rate (50k).
      • +4 Void/+4 Abyssal Accelerators: That’s nice, but I can’t imagine it being worth the additional $100 on top of the Infusion Edition.
    • Takame
      September 4, 2014 at 5:16 pm #

      Depends. Is a title, a bag, a shark mount, a dimension, a crab and cosmeticals worth extra 80€ to you?

      The shark is awesome, yes, but a similar mount can be obtained through other means.

    Can these be bought with credits?

    • September 5, 2014 at 6:07 am #

      Unfortunately no; only direct purchase for the Digital Editions.

  8. October 29, 2014 at 7:19 pm #

    If I buy the Infusion Edition can I upgrade later for a reduced price?

    • October 29, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

      There’s currently no discounts for owning a lower-tier pack when purchasing higher-tier packs. You can still buy multiple packs and apply them to your account but there are no discounts for doing so.
