RIFT news tidbits for 19th December 2014. Check out all the info below:

Fae Yule World Event

The Fae Yule World Event started on 11th Dec and will end on 8th January at 3:30PM Server Time.


  • Contest: Ice Strider Mount Giveaway. Interested in an (probably account-wide) Ice Strider Mount? Enter with your character@shard here! Ends 21st Dec at 11:59PM PST.
  • Trion E-mail Gift Code. Trion has started sending out e-mails to all those who were subscribed to receive RIFT newsletters/promos as at the time that the e-mail list was first compiled for an Xmas Gift Code. The code contains 7 Days Patron + a Merry Mink Trove. More info here.
  • Dev-Slaying Recap. Some of the devs including Kervik, Kerilar, Pithos, CaptainCursor, Epsiry, Daglar and Darkmoon participated in Conquest on the EU and NA shards today. Lots of killing, boss-summoning (multi-Laethys, Sicaron, Gelidra) and mass-combat-sheeping was had by all.
    • For those wondering about their Title: “Mutineer” – it isn’t an automatic reward and will take some time to be sent out to your in-game mail.

  • Minions Info:

    • Artifacts Without Sets. More info – here’s some examples of ‘artifacts without sets’ that you can get from Minions since Minions use full artifact loot table. [r]
      Possible ArtifactsIf you see any of these types of items drop for you, just keep them in your bank and turn them in when Trion creates an artifact set for them in a future update. What will they reward? Probably just a Lucky Coin – but who knows, they could be special/related to a future achieve.
    • Exception to Artifact Loot Table. The one exception to Minions taking from the full artifact loot table are Nightmare Rift artifacts (the ones for Master achieves) which are not available from Minions. [r]
    • Converting Minion Achievements to Account-wide. Snedhepl explains how achievements are triggered for Minions per character and goes on to mention that Trion will probably be convering more achievements, but it will be low priority at the moment. Details here.
  • Heart of the Frozen Info:
    • Daglar has reiterated that Trion have no plans to change the Bind on Pickup nature of Heart of the Frozen. [r]
    • He also mentioned that more items would use the Heart in the future, not just raid items. No details. [r]
    • Trion will be “reviewing if there are other methods for [Heart] acquisition” that they may like to add in the future. Again, no details. [r]
  • Crafting Higher Tiers. Daglar mentioned that crafting will be expanded “to higher tiers”. No ETA but he stated that it may come during the RIFT 3.1 patch cycle (so not at 3.1 launch). [r]

    Good news about crafting! And very curious what the other items that would use the Heart could be…

      Probably an additional upgrade to PvP-dropped gear, and perhaps like last with Storm Legion, an additional relic path for crafted capes. If they’re going to do it for PvP gear though, it’ll probably be after the new ‘season’ (when Tier 2 comes out) since relic gear gets bolstered down in PvP.
