Thanks for your patience!

Greetings Ascended,

We appreciate your patience as we take some time to solidify plans moving forward. There are a ton of moving parts involved in the transition from where we were to where we want to go, and it’s going to take us a bit of time to navigate all of the changes required to keep Telara and its denizens happy with the world we’ve called home for so long.

With our smaller team we’re still working out the details on what future content updates will look like. While plans are being made for the future, we’re going to be focusing the team on implementing Quality of Life improvements for RIFT in the short term.

We can’t share specifics yet because there's still work being done behind the scenes to build a strong foundation for the future. It’s on this foundation that all future updates will be built. This includes examining the health of our shard populations and looking at ways to make sure all of our players have the best possible experience in game.

If you have specific feedback on the kinds of quality of life changes you’d like to see, be sure to share them with us! It would be very helpful to get a sense for what you feel are your main pain points.

We just wanted to take another moment to thank you for your patience as we’ve been working behind the scenes to get things stabilized. More news will be coming down the road so please bear with us a while longer.

Update - Autumn Harvest is being extended an extra week and will now run through November 14, 2018!

Cool breezes and brightly colored leaves usher in Autumn Harvest starting today, October 18th! Wings, heads and tails. Tails? YES, we've introduced our very first tail item in RIFT!

Take a half dozen toxic spores from the Xarth Mire, mix in some devious beasties, swirl them together with toxic miasma and just like that, we're ready for the season of spirits!

Claim Lady Glasya's wings in the RIFT Store on Live or Prime! These pinions are loaded with dark power, and are served up in both cosmetic and mount versions in the pack, offering you flexibility in your pairings! This just in: you may also choose Lady Glasya's TAIL from the pack, the very first tail item ever offered in RIFT!

Noxious Levitation will leave a cloud of poisonous ruin in your wake as you travel across Telara. They will be offered for Credits on Live and a consumable version for event currency on Prime.

We'll have more images of the terrific new items next week and will feature them on the October 19th Livestream, where Autumn Harvest and Extra-Life share the stage! Please join Team Trion in supporting the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to help the wee ones who cannot help themselves! Even $5 helps more than you could imagine. Together with our Trion creators, we've raised almost $400,000 for Extra-Life over the past eight years... help us take it even further.


Lady Glasya is only too happy to share her wings with you this year! (Concept art)

A pack with two meeeeeeelion Loyalty points... yeah, we thought that'd catch your eye!

This is one of the best packs we have ever offered in RIFT. The hulking, menacing Maelforge Broodling Mount alone is worth it, but we also include a huge 40-slot bag (we know you need it!) and the Forgemaster's Inferno Costume helm.

All for just $29.99!

Did we mention the 2,000,000* Loyalty points? Swoop in and level up your Loyalty Tier before this limited time sale ends!

Note: The Estrodian Wings - those creepy leathery flappers with demonic eyebooglers - are not included in this pack... but we know where you can get them: the RIFT In-game store, for 3,150 credits! This includes both the cosmetic and mount version of the wings!

We want to thank Trion Creator Celyne for the gorgeous image included above. She was as inspired by the Maelforge Power Pack as we hope you will be! Follow @ArtByCelyne on Twitter and be constantly amazed by the glorious game-inspired work she creates!


Here is the Maelforge Broodling mount and Inferno Helm in game:

*just to be clear, 30k Loyalty comes from the purchase of the pack, which contains a further 1,970,000 Loyalty - we like our nice, round numbers!

Get ready for the next major update for RIFT Prime – Storm Legion!

Stand against the maelstrom of Crucia’s evil forces as they attempt to utilize the power of the Infinity Gate to conquer the Steppes of Infinity. Storm Legion is scheduled to land in RIFT Prime this fall.


The Storm Legion update for RIFT Prime raises the game’s level cap to 60 while boosting the crafting skill cap to the Grandmaster level. The update also adds two more continents for Prime subscribers to explore: Brevane and Dusken. The island stronghold Tempest Bay has been added as a new city hub, while a host of new dungeons and raids have also been added for players looking to hit the increased level cap.

High-level RIFT Prime players will also be tasked with taking on Volan, the mighty Empyrean colossus! Set loose from his prison and festooned in adamantine armor, Volan makes his debut on the RIFT Prime server to take on all challengers. Test your mettle against Volan’s metal in a battle for the ages!

The Storm Legion update is scheduled to hit RIFT Prime this fall.
