While the thrill of battle is compelling, even the most blood-thirsty berserker can only kill out of the goodness of his heart for so long. To make sure their loyal forces are armed and eager, both Guardians and Defiant strive to compensate every Ascended according to his or her contribution to the war effort. Whether Warrior, Mage, Rogue, or Cleric, rich rewards await whenever you follow your faction’s banner into battle.
Favor measures an Ascended’s esteem in their faction’s military. Every act of PvP combat, including open-world fighting, PvP quests, participating in a Warfront, and more will help spread word of your deeds and earn you Favor. This currency can be exchanged for gear, mounts, and more to help you ruin the other faction’s day in tangible, bone-crunching ways.
Once you reach maximum level, you can begin to earn Prestige, or "PvP XP." As you rise in Prestige, you will climb through the ranks of your faction’s military. Rank has its privileges, and every new rank unlocks rewards all its own.
When it comes to the spoils of war, you can’t argue with the classics. Victorious fighters have long taken trophies from the slain, and in Telara, dead enemies drop useful loot. Those who go to war to reap eternal glory will not be disappointed, as RIFT offers plenty of Achievements so challenging they’ll make your friends’ jaws drop, and your enemies’ jaws fly off, probably in the direction you swung your mace.
