RIFT: Hammerknell Instant Adventure Article

Trion Worlds has posted a new article on their RIFT website called “Echoes of Madness Brings Instant Adventure to Hammerknell!“. The article talks about the upcoming HK IA for RIFT 3.2: Echoes of Madness as well as other changes and improvements coming to Instant Adventures in general.


  • New Instant Adventures for Hammerknell Fortress. This is separate from the Tier 2 Return to Hammerknell raid.
  • A few anti-leeching measures have been added in so you have to participate to get rewards.
  • The objective scaling and IA boss hp adjustments made to Goboro Reef in the past few weeks will also be applied to Mathosia and Storm Legion IAs.
  • IAs will no longer start in zones with an active Zone Event; and if a Zone Event pops up whilst you are doing an IA in that zone, you will be ported to a different zone once your current adventure is complete.
  • Instead of gaining notoriety for the zone you are in, you will instead get tokens that you can exchange for notoriety of your choice.
  • IA queuing is now separated between Random queue and Featured queue. There is no longer any zone-specific queues.

    Is there a difference in the rewards from the Featured IA versus the random IA?

      Tacitus hasn’t mentioned anything about any differences. The ‘Featured’ is mainly used to show off new IAs, as well as to concentrate players on a particular zone. Also, the ‘Featured’ and ‘Random’ queues might have their own separate daily random IA reward.

    So no specific zone IAs. Then it will take me forever to randomly get the achievements for a zone. Good thinking again Trion.

      They’re making the old IA zone-specific achievements legacy. The recent PTS Update has instead created a new category under Achievements -> Character -> Instant Adventure. There’s achievements for each zone IA to do 7 adventures in each zone (compared to 500 before). There’s also an ‘overall’ IAs-done achievement which has various tiers that go up to 5k done, which is about half the 10k IAs from combined old 500-IA achieves.

      Overall achieve points are 60pts more than current.
