RIFT news tidbits for 3rd 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.


  • Scheduled Update Downtime. RIFT will be going down on 3/4/15, at 6:00 AM PST (NA) and 3/5/15 at 2:00 AM GMT (EU) for RIFT 3.1 Hotfix #6. Estimated ETA is 3hrs for NA due to additional server maintenance, and 1hr for EU for the update.
    • Note: NA downtime is 1-1.5hrs earlier than usual. Please make plans accordingly.
  • Live Datamining for 25th Feb 2015. New Red Budgie Mount skin, three new Lifter mount icons and a cape icon in last week’s hotfix files. Check them out here!
  • Tasuil Minion Adventures Repeat Special Again. Snedhepl has clarified that there is in fact “something special” with the repeatable Tasuil adventure chain. It involves something that is “easy to do accidentally” but that no player has yet stumbled upon. Any ideas? Check out the thread here.
  • About Lifter Mount Double-jump. The Arclight Lifter mounts used to have a ‘double-jump’ when you jumped. Snedhepl has confirmed this has been fixed and it was only an animation issue – so your Lifter’s jump distance hasn’t changed. [r]
  • Livestream Format Change. CM Ocho is looking to change up the format of RIFT Livestreams. If you have any ideas, here’s a thread you can respond to.

Community Content

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

  • YARET [Tracker]. YARET (Yet Another Rift Event Tracker) is a new zone event tracker made by forbiddenlake. Zones are listed in table format and it has several additional customization options compared to many of the other website-based zone event trackers including hiding Maps and sorting by Event, Shard, Zone or Age. It will even tell you if a zone event is taking too long compared to average completion times, and will warn you if a zone event is about to end via color-code. Collapsible, so you can fit it in a small corner of your screen.
    • Check out YARET here!
    • I’ve also updated the RIFT Event Trackers page which lists several zone event trackers. Try them out and see which one suits your preferences!
  • Speed Warlord Warrior PvP Guide [Video]. Grim has uploaded his latest PvP soul guide – the “Speed Warlord Warrior”. Macros can be found in the video description. Check it out here!
