RIFT 3.4: We’re Heading Into the Wilds on Wednesday, October 7!

Targeted for Wednesday, October 7, 2015, RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds brings a new Zone, new Calling, new Dungeon, new Warfront, and much, much more!

Sealed away from Telara for decades through the magic of the Infinity Gate, the Planetouched Wilds are a mystery, open to all at long last. News of the discovery entices adventurers to discover the lost lands and experience the wonders therein.


  • Planetouched Wilds: Although cursed by karma, these lands still retain great beauty and offer opportunity for adventure on an epic scale. Wander through the grasslands of the Cosmic Steppe, or visit the court in Shal Korva, always remembering that unexpected dangers lurk around every shadow!
  • Primalist: Take a walk on the wild side as a Primalist, the brand-new Calling launching in RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds! Learn to harness your Fury and Cunning, and unleash your Primal Avatar on your foes. Available via The Wilds Pack or the RIFT Store.
  • Rhaza’de Canyons:
Below Shal Korva awaits an immense network of canyons containing the ruins of fabled Rhaza’de. Somewhere deep within the steeply sloping walls, Teth Mornta has corrupted the mighty Ascension Machine, using it for fell purposes. Battle the minions of the Teth to conquer the corruption and earn eternal glory!  
  • Assault on Iron Tomb: Battle it out with the most dangerous enemies of all, other players! Your team is challenged to either loot or protect in this new Warfront Mode. Teams of mercenaries seek to control this tomb of the ancients, do you have what it takes?
  • Much, Much More: With a very satisfying boost to crafting, including two all new Planar crafting varieties, and a number of UI improvements sure to make your day, RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds has a little something extra for everyone. We also have additional major features in the works, like the brand new raiding tier coming later in 3.4! Check out the patch notes when they’re available for all the details.
Prepare, Ascended. October 7th will be here before you know it. We’ll see you again soon, in the Wilds!

RIFT 3.4 Spotlight: Into the Primalist

When you leap Into the Wilds in RIFT 3.4, the Primalist will be waiting. Those following this brand new calling will need to harness their fury and cunning to unlock their primal power.

Fury and Cunning
The twin poles of Fury and Cunning lie at the heart of the Primalist Calling. Dedicated primalists will need to find harmony between the two, balancing abilities that will push them toward one extreme or the other. Where the Primalist falls on the continuum will change their abilities, skills, and more.

Vulcanists for instance, can greatly benefit from being full of Fury. In this state, their enormously powerful Skill Shot becomes an instant-cast, a boost from the six seconds it would normally take. Conversely, when at maximum Harmony, their Stroke of Brilliance deals a huge amount of damage. Careful management and thoughtful selection of abilities allows both to be used at appropriate times.

Gearing for Battle
Clad in leather vestments and wielding brutal two-handed weapons, Primalists are devastatingly powerful when equipped with gear that enhances their dexterity. They will often be seen carrying ranged weaponry, but not necessarily using it in combat. Often, these weapons have mystical or totemic significance that Primalists believe will make them stronger, more capable fighters.

Primal Spirits
At the pinnacle of each soul tree lies the Primal Avatar ability. Primal Avatars allow the Primalist to evoke the strength of the spirit animal unique to their soul’s calling. When used, the Primalist dons a spectral mask that grants them an enormous, but temporary burst of power.

Souls of the Primalist
  • Berserker

    Leaving a wake of dead in their path, Berserkers slake their bloodlust by drawing enemies into a whirlpool of blood and rending foes in two with devastating, cleaving strikes.
  • Titan

    Much like the giants of myth, Titans use their raw Fury to withstand huge blows. Cunning Titans, on the other hand, can react quickly enough to preempt incoming damage.
  • Dervish

    Swift as the wind, Dervishes do best in face to face combat with opponents. Whirling into action, they make full use of both Fury and Cunning and swing effortlessly between each extreme.
  • Preserver

    Embodying the capricious nature of fae forest spirits, Preservers channel healing magic to nourish allies. They frequently use both Cunning and Fury, often expending their stored energy to unleash potent heals. The more abilities used, the more powerful heals become!
  • Typhoon

    Much like their namesake, the Typhoon’s sweeping attacks can devastate entire groups of foes. By wisely rotating between abilities and strikes, they can power up their next attacks.
  • Vulcanist

    Vulcanists channel the force of an erupting Volcano to rain fire down upon foes. Fury powers up many of their attacks, although a state of Harmony can also be advantageous for some abilities. A Vulcanist cares little for Cunning, preferring a more direct approach to dealing damage.

Primalists will be here with RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds, set for release in Fall 2015. Get yours today as part of The Wilds Pack, or wait until release when it will be available for 5250 credits. With their control over Fury and deep wells of Cunning, nothing can stand in the way of a skilled Primalist!

I'm not gonna bother making a pros and cons list. Or a rating system. Or anything like that. This. Is. A. Very. Good. Game. My favorite part is the community. In all the time I've played I NEVER met a single jerk who thought he was better than everyone or was just plain mean. Get this game. It's free. What could you lose?

Rift is a little 'smile because virtually every element of the game was caught by some other MMORPG and proposed in a similar, if not identical, to a group of developers whose creative effort has been, well, decidedly modest. And that does not do well in a market that is now lacking in ideas. Despite everything, however, the MMORPG from Trion Worlds is a bit 'a summary of the best of the genre and if it is true that developers are cloners Kaminoans worthy of Star Wars, it is equally true that the final product came on the market in one It was almost perfect, finished, content rich and free of burrs or technical problems: a job that deserves much praise, considering the disastrous launch and the paucity of the contents that characterized some newer products. In effect, Rift nowadays is the real alternative to the two best MMORPG theme-park market, World of Warcraft and The Lord of the Rings Online, and this is not a trivial matter.

Having played Warcraft for a number of years I was looking for an alternative that offered something closer to 'classic' WoW gameplay. Although Rift differs from Warcraft in many ways to me it represents all the good attributes WoW once had in classic. The graphical update alone from WoW to Rift is something to witness. The gameplay is smooth and what really surprised me is although the game really encourages you to spend some of your hard earned cash, you can really play the game (costing you time rather than cash) without spending anything making it truly free to play. The quests are very similar to those you find in warcraft but there are rift events and group adventuring which are different from WoW and a welcome addition especially to beginners. I found the user base to be far less 'toxic' than the WoW community and they embrace rather than try to embarrass new players. I found that gameplay seems 'faster' than WoW action is more immediate and to me seems less repetitive (although I am still new to this and haven’t yet maxed out a character). The instances/raids are interesting and varied with some particularly good boss fights. You still get the same pleasure from loot drops as you do in WoW the 'talent tree' is also available for you to customize your character. I think Rift for me is better its more customizable more user friendly has new content that I have never seen, the community is by far one of the best and friendly online communities I have come across and it recaptures and then adds its own uniqueness to something I used to really enjoy in classic WoW.

Apologies to those that have read this and never played warcraft before but its the only experience I can really compare it to that will hopefully resonate with people out there. All in all highly recommended. I was so pleased with the initial free game I waited for the steam sale and bought Laethy's Fortune Pack which gives you 90 days of patron benefits among many other things. So far I don't regret spending a penny on this game.
