RIFT news tidbits for 13-15th June 2015.

  • Promo: RIFT Summer Sale. RIFT has a 50-75% off sale from now until June 21st 2015 for their Nightmare Tide, Classic and Soul Packs. Full info on the various discounts and what they contain here!

Summerfest World Event

The Summerfest World Event is on-going. There’s a ton to do including scavenger hunts, dailies, fishing, a new minion chain and all new Wings and Backpack costumes! Below you can find everything you need to know about Summerfest 2015:


  • Daily Region Restarts. Since the latest hotfix you might have noticed that shards are going down on a daily basis at 7:30AM PDT (NA) or 1AM GMT (EU) for approx. 1hr. This is a temporary fix to Vista crash issues that occur whenever the servers are up for more than 24hrs. This is on-going until further notice. [r] [r]
  • The Sheepening. With this week’s hotfix, all NPCs in Margle Palace will turn into sheep as Trion does some investigations on FPS issues in Margle Palace. This will last a week. [r]
    • If you happen to experience bad FPS (the kind that drops you to ~2fps for no reason) in Margle Palace during the week of ‘The Sheepening’, please let Trion know via feedback/forums!
  • Summerfest Bracelets. Just an additional info on obtaining Summerfest Bracelets:
    • The new minion cards seems to have a chance of obtaining Summerfest Friendship Bracelets for 6-star adventures.
    • Fishing at Sunplant fishing nodes (the ones that appear on the map during Summerfest) has a chance of dropping the bracelets. (Thanks to Kitasia for the info!)
  • Sandals? Trion might add sandals in the future for all those who don’t like getting burns walking on the sand! [r]
  • Plane of Water Fishing Trophy Fix. The Plane of Water Fishing Trophy will be fixed “very soon” so that it is properly rewarded. [r]

Community Content

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

  • WGS – Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten [Dimension]. If my German is up to speed, that means something about a stadium canteen’s music. Okay, maybe my German needs a bit of work, but Alliandre@Brutwacht’s latest dimension sure doesn’t – check out some info on the dimension before you pop in for a visit here!
  • On the losing team of course Reaver PvP [PvP][Video]. SirSpaceboots takes a trip through Karthan Ridge in his Warrior Reaver spec. Check it out here!

    Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten is a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_Musicians_of_Bremen).
