RIFT news tidbits for 5th June 2015.

Unicornalia Promo Week

Unicornalia Promo Week has popped up. There’s Onyx and Opal Unicorn Mounts to hunt down until 3:30PM ST on Thursday, 11th June 2015.

  • Guide: Unicornalia Promo Week. Need help with a quest, or want information on how to get that free Limited Edition: Sparkle Trove? Check out the guide!


  • RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #10. Latest hotfix was to fix a crash. No other info. [r]
  • Weekly Patron Gift Changed. The lockbox that you get in the Weekly Patron Gift has changed from the Levitate Supply Crate to the Bolt Supply Crate.
  • Horns and Hooves Zone Event Pumped. The frequency of the Horns and Hooves zone event in Moonshade Highlands has increased during the current Unicornalia Promo Week so that you can finish the one-off quest to kill Ezmodeamus. [r] Easiest way to track the zone event would be to use one of the many Rift Event Trackers out there.
  • Summerfest Date Hint. CM Ocho responded to a question about when Summerfest will launch this year by stating “Probably not July. ;)”. August seems a bit too late, does this mean we’ll be getting Summerfest some time in June? That means either the 11th, 18th or 25th June! Keep an eye out!
    • Tip: Don’t forget to stock up on Aventurine for the Summerfest 10hr promo minion adventures!
  • Guffin Saga? Senior Game Designer (and voice of Atrophinius) CaptainCursor mentioned in a twitter conversation today that there would be a “Guffin Saga” and “Guffin IA” released in 3.3. Now, CC is known for trolling, but perhaps there might be some ‘truth’ in at least the Guffin Instant Adventure, since Tacitus has been working on Tarken Glacier Instant Adventures which are slated for 3.3. (Thanks to Kiwi for the info!)
  • Tracking Key Story Arcs. Trion is looking at ways to possibly add some way for players to track key story arcs. [r]
  • Bolt Supply Crate Giveaway Winners. Congratulations to Hitoma@Laethys, Shihli@Greybriar, Nuriell@Laethys and Surie@Brisesol for winning Bolt Supply Crates in the most recent giveaway. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks!
