Summerfest World Event

Summerfest is starting tomorrow! Starts 3:30PM Server Time (PDT for NA, GMT for EU) on Thursday, June 11th. World Event tab is already up on RIFT Store.

  • New Minion Cards. There’s 6 new minion cards with 5 of them obtained from a new Summerfest Adventure chain. Full information about the chain can be found here.

Tip: You can purchase the non-bundle constume items -> auto-collected to wardrobe -> refund. WARNING: It only works on the old items + primeval feast stuff. The backpacks/wings are auto-consumed (see their tooltips).


  • RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #11. Summerfest 2015 starts 3:30PM Server time on Thursday. Tempest Bay now also has NT Crafting Weekly and NT Onslaught Daily/Weekly NPCs. Full patch notes here.
  • Notice: Full Re-Download Issue. If you get a message when trying to play RIFT that asks you whether you wish to do a full re-download of RIFT; don’t worry, it’s just a text bug. If you proceed it will update you to the latest patch as per normal.
    • Archonix explained that one of the two main components to today’s RIFT patch required a full download of some static files (~100mb in size). Unfortunately the “Full Download” message triggers whenever one of the main components requires a full download. In the future Trion will separate the messages. [r]
  • Notice: Glyph Error #1008/#1038. If you are getting an error with the latest update, try deleting your Glyph folder’s cache and GlyphClient.cfg. Another possible solution is to delete dbghelp.dll in the RIFT folder, or to change the install filepath. Full information on potential solutions here.
  • Craft Sinks. Morticus has confirmed that Trion is looking to create sinks for some of the crafting materials that are in overabundance. [r]
  • Rogue Tanking Ring Fix. The crafted Rogue Tanking Ring should be getting a fix to its upgrade so it doesn’t turn into a Warrior ring. Fixed internally, ETA on Live: “soon”. [r]
  • Cosmologist Mann Warfront Announcer WIP. Captain Cursor has uploaded a photo with Sound Designer Jason Clark as he records some lines for Cosmologist Mann’s upcoming Warfront Announcer! [r]
