Hewn limbs rustle in the depths of the Delve. Tongues twitch and eyes search for the shapes of fallen bodies. They roll and cling and snap one to the next, cohering into souls you thought long dispatched: Murdantix, Zilas, Grugonim, Molinar – the list goes on as the full host of Akylios’s horrors rise from the grave. This is happening. This is Hammerknell. And this time everyone will meet its horrors face to face.

RIFT 3.2: Echoes of Madness has arrived with the blood-curdling promise of Hammerknell-for-all. Our rebuilt 20-player raid leads the way, along with re-tuned and reimagined incarnations of its legendary foes. Instant Adventures will expand the fight into (and beyond) the home of Dwarves, as do Tier 6 Nightmare Rifts, huge upgrades to the Wardrobe system, and more!


KEY FEATURES
Hammerknell: 20-Player Raid

While the Ascended scored tactical victories against his forces in the Plane of Water, Lord Arak searched for nightmares they truly feared – and found them in the haunted halls of the Dwarves. Now, he’s used the plane’s power to bring Akylios and his army back to life: an army that’s ready to devour minds across Telara. Gather your max-level allies and dive into one of the best-loved raids in RIFT. The spirit, scale, and atmosphere remain, but the difficulty has soared to level 65! Read more about Hammerknell
New & Improved Instant Adventures

In the weeks following the raid debut, new Instant Adventures will open the halls of Hammerknell to all players at the push of a button. Battle through interconnected quests that lead you on a tour of the fortress and pit you against its greatest foes.Of course, the fun doesn’t end in the Delve: improvements to all Instant Adventures are now live, including better scaling and pacing, fewer Zone Event distractions, Notoriety token rewards you can redeem with any faction, Featured Adventure queues, and more. Read more about New Instant Adventures
Wardrobe Upgrades

A massive upgrade to our Wardrobe System will save the appearance of all of the items you acquire and let you use them whenever you like in a range of personal styles and looks (including items you earned for Achievements but have since discarded!). Additional updates are planned for the future, adding Wardrobe Favorites, Sets, Linking, Previewing, and more.Read more about the New Wardrobe System
Tier 6 Nightmare Rifts, Nightmare Tide Fishing, and more!

Are you a nightmare hunter of the highest order? Try your hand at new Tier 6 Nightmare Rifts that up the ante with endless waves of danger (and rewards). If you’re looking for more leisurely alternatives, try scaring up new Twisted Artifacts in the Plane of Water or fishing your way through Nightmare Tide with new and revamped poles, lures, and quests plus new fishing audio, “grey level” skill-ups, and the return of the Fishing Derby with new rewards.

Community Announcements - Ocho


With the launch of Nightmare Tide, we have breached planar boundaries and together we march, ride, and swim into new realms beyond Telara. This is our first expansion as a free-to-play game, and it’s really exciting to be able to share it with all of you.

We’ve increased our maximum level to 65 and introduced the Mastery system to further customize your character as you venture into the Plane of Water. Explore three massive zones packed with quests and dynamic events, six dungeons, a new Warfront, a new Sliver, and in a few weeks – a new 20-player raid.

The Minions system brings all new collectibles, along with new ways to earn rewards and profit. Mentoring has been expanded and improved to allow players of all levels to play together – low level players can now scale up and play with their friends! That’s right, all players have the opportunity to experience adventures and zone events in the Plane of Water. Meanwhile, Nightmare Rifts bring new and terrifying challenges to every zone in RIFT. Test your skill by fighting unending waves of enemies while racing against the clock!

Of course, this is just the start of the Nightmare Tide era for RIFT! As always, the team will continue to add content, listen to your feedback, and work at making every version of RIFT better than the last. Your contributions and feedback are amazingly important; making RIFT wouldn’t be the same without the community we have and the support you give us.

It’s an amazing time to be playing RIFT, Ascended, so let’s go play! See you on the other side of the Infinity Gate.

The Infinity Gate lumbers through portentous skies as a dark presence returns to Telara. From the forests of Silverwood to the shores of Pelladane, mortals succumb to a magical sleep. And somewhere off Fortune’s Shore, across a bridge unopened, nightmares plot a haunting reunion with their unwitting creators. Madness Wakes has arrived!

RIFT 2.8 unleashes a story arc surging toward the Nightmare Tide expansion. It throws open the gates to Nightmare Coast, the first RIFT 3.0 Dungeon pitting the Ascended against Lord Arak and his troubled minions with huge implications for the future of the planes. Meanwhile, seas of change bring major additions to Auction House features, a full revamp for the Pyromancer Soul, and more. Check out the trailer for a first look at Madness Wakes, or jump to the RIFT Community Blog for all the details!
