Grab Your Gear and Be Prepared: Rift is Being Invaded

Rift is having a special event this weekend! Check it out!

Silverwood and Freemarch are in trouble. Both the initial starting zones for both Defiant and Guardian sides (after the tutorial) are being invaded. They are calling all inhabitants of Telara to unite and get rid of the forces of the planes that are coming. Grab your swords and shields, guys, it might get a little rough.

From June 27th to July 2nd, players have the chance to either mentor a lower level player or create a new one to play for this new event that is ranked for levels 7 through 19.The rewards are definitely on for this event. One thing mentioned (which is important for players that mentor down) is bonus planar currency that is set for your level. There will also be new achievements from the events for players to collect.

What is a Rift event without special loot to drop from the enemies? That’s right, this one is no different. A few examples of new loot include (but are not limited to):

  • Sapphire Ki Rin Mount
  • Defiant/Guardian Crest Capes
  • Crimson Gothic Hat
  • Lesser Token Tablet
  • Riot Torch

I will most definitely be in Telara this weekend. Hope to see you there! If you haven’t tried Rift yet, it is now free to play.
