Trion has started a promotion in RIFT that introduces a brand new mount, the Greathound. The promotion is in partnership with GREY2k USA Worldwide, the largest greyhound protection and adoption organization in the United States.
The idea for the mount comes from Lead Concept Artist Sven Bybee who adopted his black greyhound, Fenrir about three years ago. You can check up his story here!
Between Sept 1st through to 11:59PM PDT on September 30th 2015, you can purchase Limited Edition: Greathound Troves from the RIFT Store front page. The Troves contain the usual chance at various currency, lock box gear, runes, costume bundles and other service items. There’s also a rare chance at Tier 1 accessories or the Heart of the Frozen.
They also have a rare chance of dropping the new Greathound mount.
Trion will donate 10% from the sale of each Limited Edition: Greathound Trove to GREY2k USA Worldwide. This applies worldwide, with the exclusion of the US States: Alabama, Hawaii, Massachusetts and South Carolina. You can check out full details in Trion’s article here.
Below you can see the Greathound Mount in all its glory:
The mount is purple with black stripes and is modeled after the greyhound. It also has elongated ‘ear whiskers’ and a long tail.
The Greathound mount has 155% mount speed or matches your fastest mount. It is also applied to all existing and future characters on your account once the item is consumed.
Note: It is not Amphibious.
When idle, the Greathound will occasionally lower itself and stretch forward. Its tail and ‘ear-whiskers’ will sway depending on its posture.
(Thanks to Slipmat for modelling!)
