RIFT news tidbits for 21st January 2016.


  • Budgie Madness Promo Week. Budgie Madness is back with a new mount “Spooky the Nightmare Budgie“. It’s a rare chance drop from the Limited Edition: Spooky the Nightmare Budgie Trove. Budgie Race dailies are also up providing Bird Seed used to purchase Ashen, Frosty and Umbral Budgie mounts from the PRI Quartermaster. Event ends 28th Jan 2016 at 3:30PM Server Time. More info here.
  • A Look Back: The Planes of Heroes of Telara. Ever wondered what the game was like prior to launch? It actually wasn’t initially called RIFT. In fact, it didn’t even have Rifts at the start and Port Scion existed in the game prior to launch. Check out the first in a series of “A Look Back” articles as we draw closer to RIFT’s 5th Anniversary!
  • Weapon VFX Fix. MrScary has announced that the bug causing weapon vfx to be unable to be applied in the off-hand slot will be fixed in the next patch. [r]
