RIFT news tidbits for 26-27th October 2014. Check out all the info below:


  • Extra Life 2014. Extra Life 2014 was a blast! The title: “The Extravagant” for clocking 24hrs of gaming in a Trion game ends at 8am PDT on Monday, 28th Oct 2014 but the official Extra Life 24hr event has ended. Trion has managed to raise $94,659 and might even edge to $95,000 by the end of the year. Extra Life as a whole has raised $5,430,275 as of this post!
    • For those wondering about their fundraising reward codes, those should be sent out this week to your e-mail. Make sure to check spam folders and – if using gmail – your Social and Promotions tabs. Most Extra Life and Trion e-mails tend to end up in Promotions by default.
  • Minions Info. Your minion does not regenerate stamina when it is on an Adventure, but as soon as it has completed (so ‘claim’ button comes up), it will start to regenerate stamina. This occurs whether you are online or offline. [r]
  • Dailies getting Void Stone Rewards. Daglar has announced that Trion will be adding a small amount of void stones to Nightmare Tide dailies with this week’s hotfix. [r]

Minions Info: Hidden Minions.

ToxicWaltz found a ‘Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate’ that had 6 attributes! Dev Pithos has announced that there are indeed ‘hidden minions’ with ‘hidden conditions’ required to obtain them. These minions have “unusual combinations of attributes, stat growth, and stamina on them”. [r]Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate

  • The Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate has Earth, Life, Death, Hunting, Artifact and Assassination attributes. It is found by performing a specific set of hidden conditions.

Obtaining the Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate

It has to do with the tooltip “Only the one percent will ever gaze upon my full potential”. Eorer on the forums found out that you need to have completed “Scraping The Threads of Fate” achievement from the Tier 3 Level 60 Storm Legion Bindings of Blood raids which gives you “The One Percent” title.

You must also have the “The One Percent” title active by going to your Character window (default key “c“) -> Titles and making it your active title.

Enter the Rhen of Fate Level 65 Tier 1 10-man sliver (can do this solo) to get the card. The sliver is located at /setwaypoint 6362 4228. You will need Omen Sight (Guardian) or Quantum Sight (Defiant) buff up to see the portal. Entering the Rhen of Fate with “The One Percent” title active gives you the card.

Community Content

Below is a list of content created recently by the RIFT community!

  • Best-in-Slot List. RiftScene’s BiS List has been updated with the Nightmare Tide drops. Although the site is no longer updated in general, the databases are (afaik) still automatically updated by pulling Rift’s daily discovery logs. Thus if the gear has dropped it should appear on the BiS List some time afterwards (24hrs+). Check out RiftScene’s BiS List here.
  • Guide: ‘A Prowed Moment’ Achievement by forbiddenlake. Forbiddenlake has posted a nice guide on all the locations for completing the ‘A Prowed Moment’ achievement that rewards Minion Card: Reginald (Harvesting/Artifact). Check it out here!
  • Guide: ‘Draumheim Puzzle’ by Snap. Snap on the forums has posted up a detailed Draumheim Puzzle guide! Check it out here.
  • Contest: Guild Launch 2x GeForce GTX 970 Graphics Cards. Guild Launch is offering two lucky winners a GeForce GTX 970 Graphics Card each! Simply enter your e-mail address on this page here.
    • You’ll need to have javascript enabled for viralsweep.com and guildlaunch.com.
    • You must be 13 years or older and the cards are eligible to be won world-wide. Please read the full rules on the contest page.
    • Bonus entries can be gained for visiting their site and by interacting with various social media (like hitting ‘like’ on RIFT’s facebook page).
  • Massively takes tour of Nightmare Tide with Trion. MJ Guthrie from Massively took a video tour of Nightmare Tide with Daglar, Dead Simon, Archonix and Ocho. Check it out here!

    You have the wrong link for the Minions System Guide. It should be: http://forums.riftgame.com/game-discussions/rift-guides-strategies/444363-guide-minions-system.html
