RiftGrate recently held the final Road to Primalist: Pack Giveaway & Contest from 29th Sept to 5th Oct 2015 in an ongoing series leading up to 3.4! There were a total of 266 entries for this giveaway/contest!
The Giveaway & Contest
The latest giveaway (and contest) was for one of two Primalist Calling Packs, granting you account-wide access to the first six souls of the 5th calling in RIFT: the Primalist!
- The contest portion of the last “Road to Primalist” event involved answering a contest question; and
- The giveaway portion simply involved posting your char@shard info in the comments section of the giveaway page and being selected by Randomizer.
Using Randomizer, we’ve got ourselves the winner of the giveaway:
Congratulations to Khaler@Faeblight for winning the giveaway!
There were quite a lot of fantastic entries to the contest with a whole variety of responses based on the question of why you wanted the Primalist Pack.
It was difficult coming up with a clear winner. So difficult in fact that I have decided to reward a Primalist pack to two contest winners instead of the original one.
The Contest winners are:
Vrogue had a very interesting, rhyming submission explaining his/her desire for the Primalist Pack in a round-about way. Rafaeon took the more direct approach and gave a brief overview of what catches their fancy with the Primalist calling.
Congratulations to Vrogue@Deepwood and Rafaeon@Wolfsbane for winning the contest!
Prize Delivery Info:
Your Primalist Packs will be in your in-game mail within 24hrs of RIFT 3.4 going live!
I’ll try to get your packs out to you asap! However, the Primalist Packs will only be available on the RIFT Store once 3.4 goes live so I am unable to gift them beforehand. Also, the shards will go down at 6am PDT (Wednesday), with downtime estimated at ~5hrs. [r] That happens to be 5am my time so expect a 1-2hr delay after patch goes up (assuming estimated downtime is about right).

Didn’t win? Not to worry! If you are new to RIFT or have never bought Credits, you can get a free Starter Pack with Ascend-a-Friend! Simply apply the following code to your account on Trion Worlds’ Apply Code page, or use the link here.

For anyone who is interested, all 266 entries were collected and pasted into a List Randomizer found on www.random.org. The top entry was deemed the winner of the giveaway.
*Discrepancies between comment total and no. of entries inputted into the Randomizer are due to comments that were not entries, or ones that were too suspicious to add in (i.e. 12 submissions with the same IP address with a 1min apart submission). I understand that some submissions may have been husband/wife, parent/child-type submissions. However, as with all giveaways on RiftGrate, I only include one of them for submission purposes.
