Summer is almost over but things are really heating up on RIFT Prime!

This week brings new RIFT Prime content for Ascended to enjoy! This week’s game update includes a brand-new Tier 2 raid shard, Tier 2 of Planar Attunement, and a new story quest line! Learn more about each in each of the sections below.

New Raid Shard

Rise of the Phoenix

This level 50 10-man raid takes place in an alternate Telaran timeline. When High Priest Arakhurn opened the Planar Gate in this timeline, instead of opening a portal to the Earth Plane, it accidentally opens into the Plane of Fire. In this raid, Arakhurn’s acolytes absorb the flames and the High Priest himself is turned into a phoenix! To get there, Ascended must have either Omen Sight or Quantum Sight to see the portal in West Stonefield. But be careful, it’s sure to get hot!

Advance to Planar Attunement Tier 2

Planar Attunement is relatively new to RIFT Prime. To learn more about it, check out our Planar Attunement announcement blog from July 11th. Now, with this week’s game update, worthy Ascended can advance all the way to the second tier and become even more powerful!

New Quest Line: Saga of the Wanton Maw

Originally released with RIFT’s 1.8 patch, the Saga of the Wanton Maw comes to Prime! This cult saga questline is for Prime Ascended who’ve attained level 50. The wicked followers of Maelforge are up to no good and they must be stopped! The story also leads Ascended into the upcoming Infernal Dawn Raid.

For the complete list of updates for this week’s game update, check out the official Prime patch notes here. Then, stay tuned to the RIFT blog for additional updates coming this month!

As summer comes to a close, the winners of Alsbeth’s Beach Party Dimension Contest have been revealed. Find out who won in our latest RIFT blog!

On Friday, July 13, 2018, Trion Creator Kelari Cuddles launched Alsbeth’s Beach Party Dimension Contest for Ascended on both RIFT Live and RIFT Prime. The contest asked players to put together beach party dimensions that the likes of Alsbeth the Discordant might enjoy. Many Ascended heeded the call and submitted their designs all the way through August 5, 2018.

Then, on Friday, August 10, 2018, the RIFT Team announced the winners live on the weekly RIFTstream. They showed off the winning entries in detail with commentating by Kelari Cuddles herself. To watch the whole stream, check out the YouTube vod here.

Alsbeth’s Beach Party Dimension Contest Winners
  • Chulya (Brutwacht) – Albeth’s Thunderdome
  • Kyzzie (Prime) – Endless Court Oasis Prime
  • AudzillaRAWR (Faeblight) – Death’s Respite
  • Silveroflights (Laethys) – The After Party

Each of the winners won a 30-day RIFT Patron Pass and a choice of either an Island Surfboard mount or a Burning Apocalypse Snail mount.

Thanks to everyone who participated. There were honestly so many great entries that it was very difficult for the judges to pick the final winners. As a result, we’ve decided to give all valid entries a 30-day Patron pass for their participation.

What’s next for RIFTers? Check out Trion Creator Seshatar’s Skins on Farm 3rd Anniversary “Summer Hangover” Wardrobe contest going on until August 31, 2018. Do you have a community contest you’d like to put together? Email us at community@trionworlds.com to set something up!
