The Planar Research Institute proudly presents another Arclight Ascendancy event, which will take place in Telara through June 22.


Traverse to Moonshade Highlands daily to participate in Arclight Time Trials; race an Arclight Rider to earn Enduring Sourcestone Batteries that you can use to get your very own Arclight Rider!

Want even more batteries? Complete the quest “Recharge and Refit” and battle it out with mechanical monstrosities to gather their intact power supplies - then hand those in for further rewards!

In addition to the normal Riders you can acquire by completing the PRI’s daily quests, you can also have an opportunity to vie for a Golden Arclight Rider by purchasing a Limited Edition: Golden Arclight Rider Trove.

These Arclight Riders are ready to roll!

RIFT’s graphics engine ascends to another level!

Upon logging in you may notice a dramatic increase in framerate; that’s because Multicore support has gone live in RIFT! After years of work by our Engineers, and uncountable numbers of hours of testing from your fellow Ascended, Multicore is ready for full release. While the diversity of systems and settings out there make it impossible to quote an exact figure, many of our testers report performance upgrades of 25-50% or more!

So get ready Ascended, and enjoy the improved frame rates. We’ve got better performance for you today, and are already hard at work on our next big technical milestone, a full 64 bit client!
Best of all, you don’t have to do anything – your client will automatically update.

This is a huge benefit to all RIFT players, but especially to those who previously chose to use the Low Quality Renderer. Almost everyone should now see better performance with the standard renderer and Multicore enabled over the previous Low Quality Renderer. The purpose of the LQR was to optimize CPU usage, which is no longer necessary with multicore. Fear not though, the LQR isn’t going away, and you can always get it back by going to Settings, Video, Advanced. If you experience any issues with Multicore enabled you can also disable it in the same location.
Thanks to everyone who helped us test Multicore, and cheers to a brighter, smoother, and more detailed future for RIFT

We are all very excited to see so many great submissions for the RIFT Preset Contest Redux. We want ALL Ascended to have a say in which Presets make it into game, and invite you to participate in our survey!

You may vote for up to five Presets per archetype. Each one gains equal weight, and will be combined with our Developer evaluations for the final call.

Please review the entries from a new player's point of view. Look for clarity, detail, accuracy and completeness!

Click here to access the survey!

Thank you, Ascended, your experience and input is valuable to us all!
