RIFT news tidbits for 9th May 2015.

Razorback Roundup Promo Week

The Razorback Roundup Promo Week introduces the new Razorback mount and adds two new achievements and three dailies to complete.


  • EU Unexpected Downtime. EU shards had some database issues which caused Trion to bring the shards offline temporarily. They came back up on Sunday at 1AM GMT.
  • Minions Info. Minion Card Database has been updated with the following:
    • Cynthae and Bludfeng details updated to include that they can be fished up with the Lure of Planar Distortion/Uncle Stan’s Super Secret Lure. (Thanks to Reltub for the info!)
    • Update: Doreen 7 Water 18 Artifact with 30 Max Stamina.
    • Update: Face Pull 7 Life 18 Diplomacy with 30 Max Stamina. (Thanks to Xiora@Deepwood for the info!)
  • Rift Wardrobe: Mountaineer’s Garb. Find out how to get the Mountaineer’s Garb set in this week’s Rift Wardrobe! If you’re quick you could scoop them up for as little as 2-3p!

Tip: Summerfest is likely to appear in the next few weeks. Might be time to save up some Aventurine (Minion currency) in anticipation of Summerfest 10hr Promo adventures. If it’s like previous World Events, it should give you the world event’s lockbox if you get a 6-star rating on the adventure.
