About RiftGrate

RiftGrate is a site dedicated to providing the latest news, guides and commentary on the dynamic MMORPG known as RIFT.

Recurring features on the site include PTS Updates, Livestream Summaries and Datamining. There’s also a variety of informative series such as Making Platinum in RIFT, Addon Watch and Rift Wardrobe.

Need your daily RIFT fix? RiftGrate has News Tidbits that summarizes all the latest news and articles as well as content created by the community on a near daily basis. If you’re looking to jog your memory on an upcoming feature or just want a list of everything that is planned, check out the PTS/Live Comparison Page.

Free RIFT Starter Pack

Are you new to RIFT or a returning player? Perhaps you have yet to commit to the game with a purchase? You might be eligible for a free RIFT Starter Pack that contains:

  • A free 16-slot bag
  • A rune that imbues your weapon with a special glow
  • A stunning cloak
  • A unique title – “The Chosen”

Simply apply the following code to your account on Trion Worlds’ Apply Code page, or use the link here.


If you are able to successfully apply the RIFT Starter Pack code, simply relog and the items should be sent to your in-game mail! Using the code will help RiftGrate provide more frequent and larger contests and giveaways!


Home Page
The main area to locate new information would be the home page (click on the “RiftGrate” header to go back to access the home page at any time). New news and guides are posted first on the home page before they are added elsewhere.

Side Bar
The Side Bar provides links to current/relevant guides, contests and important news. This is updated often depending on what is relevant. There are also categories and tags that you can view that lists all the posts associated with those categories/tags.

Missed a post? No problem! The Archive has a month-by-month collection of all articles on RiftGrate as well as Patch Notes and Livestream Summaries.

The Unofficial Rift Calendar displays upcoming Rift-related events, contests and major additions so that you will always be up-to-date and never miss anything important.

There’s a plethora of guides and random tips for content in Rift. If there’s a World Event you need information about, a new Storm Legion Expert Dungeon or information on how to make platinum in the game – the Guides section will assist you with those inquiries.

PTS/Live Comparison
The PTS/Live Comparison page lists all upcoming changes on a single page – both those on the Public Test Shard as well as those not yet up on the test client. Further information on each feature/addition to the game can be accessed via the links on the page.

If you need a quick run-down of what is coming up – the PTS/Live Comparison page is your one-stop source!

3.0 Content
The 3.0 Content page lists everything we know about the 3.0 Plane of Water Expansion. Of particular interest will probably be the 3.0 Whiteboard and the 3.0 Plane of Water cross-section Image that provides teasers for potential 3.0 content.

Reference List
The Reference List provides a variety of information that players often want confirmation on. Stat Caps, Currency Caps, abbreviations, how CC works in PvP and other similar questions are answered here.

You will also find spreadsheets and other useful information such as a Dream Orbs stat range spreadsheet and an Artifact list for Artifact Sets that reward interesting items.
