RIFT news tidbits for 1-2nd March 2015.

Carnival of the Ascended 2015

The Carnival of the Ascended World Event is on-going, celebrating the 4th Anniversary of RIFT! New Carnival goods such as masks, weapon costumes, ‘bubble’ Dimension items, Carousel Ram mount and Level 65 Essences can be found on the RIFT Store -> World Event.


  • Free Code: RIFT 4th Anniversary Steam Gift Pack. Players who run RIFT through Steam’s client got a treat today with a special gift pack to celebrate RIFT’s 4th anniversary. The pack contains a 3-day Patron Pass, 2x exclusive costumes and some Transcendent Potions. You can find out more details on the pack here.
  • About 10hr Carnival Promo. With this week’s hotfix Trion will change the box that currently drops from the 10hr Carnival minion adventure. The box is currently the Fae Yule Gift of Giving. Consider obtaining one prior to this week’s hotfix if you want a Yulebot 9000 companion pet and the title “The Gifter”; or miss out (potentially) forever. More details here.
  • Reminder: Party with Trion at PAX. Trion has uploaded a video reminder that they’ll be holding a party at PAX that you can join in this Friday, March 6th from 6-9pm EST at Legal Harborside in Boston! More info can be found here.


  • Recent Shard Down-time/Issues. NA and EU recently had server issues and some unexpected shard down-time today. CM Ocho stated that the NA shards experienced a DDoS attack although this was not mentioned for the EU shards. [r]
  • Tasuil Adventure Chain Repeat. You can repeat Tasuil’s adventure chain. Turntablist was able to repeat the chain at least three times – however, you cannot obtain Tasuil more than once.
    • Snedhepl has stated that the chain is repeatable so players who missed the story can re-read them. It won’t reward anything unique/new. [r]
    • Isbulftw suggests that the trigger for repeating the chain after you’ve completed it the first time is through using Quantum/Omen Sight whilst doing 5/15min adventures.
  • Other Tidbits.
    • CaptainCursor hopes Rift goes to the Sea of Fangs, although this might not mean much as CaptainCursor is prone to teasing the player base.
    • MaNuGo guild quest can only be done at Ghar Stations, not in your dimension. [r]
    • Finric in Draumheim will no longer keep repeating his roleplay after this week’s hotfix. [r]

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

  • Relict-Rift Event Tracker Is Back Up [Tracker]! After a hiatus due to server strains brought on by last year’s Fae Yule Sparkle Box quests, Matti@Brutwacht has brought his RIFT Event Tracker site back up. You can check it out here for all your zone event tracking needs!
  • Minion Database by Brincas [Minions]. Brincas has created a new Minions Database that lists all attributes for each minion, max stamina and where they can be obtained. You might find her database an easier read than RiftGrate’s version. Check it out here!

    I’ve been informed that if you group up with players – regardless of their guild – their clicks also work torward the quest – even if they are not part of your guild. That could potentially make finishing the quest faster. I’ve not tried it yet, but I’m thinking it’s like the balloon jumping groups.
