The new year is here, and the next RIFT content update is hot on its heels. RIFT 1.7: Carnival of the Ascended sees the Guardians and Defiant secure the territory they’ve gained in the War of the Rifts. Infiltrate the River of Souls Chronicle with a friend, or join an elite group in the new Master Dungeon. The Prestige system has been streamlined, and the Ascended share their love for all eternity! All this and more from the most aggressive update schedule in MMOs when RIFT 1.7 goes live!
Speaking of new years, we’re coming up fast on a whole year of RIFT. In this time, the Ascended have slain the dragons of Life and Water and held off the forces of Fire and Earth. Now you can enjoy these victories, explore new dangers, and redouble your efforts against the enemy faction. Love is in the air, but new challenges approach as the Carnival of the Ascended gets under way.
Disguised as cultists of the Endless Court, you and an ally (or maybe just you) must sneak into the River of Souls to foil Alsbeth’s schemes. Terrible foes and an old friend await in our latest Chronicle for one or two Ascended.
Even immortal Ascended need to share eternity with the one they love. Amid the horrors of the rifts, Guardians and Defiant have each created a ritual to pledge undying devotion. Invite your friends and allies to witness your in-game nuptials, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Prestige system gets major improvements, changing the number of ranks to 40. We’re removing Prestige requirements from PvP gear, and rolling PvP Soul abilities and benefits into their own Planar Attunement tree.
Advanced dungeoneers now have more adventures to choose from, as Tier 1 and Tier 2 have merged. Expert Mode dungeons become a single category in LFG, sporting trials and rewards on par with Tier 2.
Take your elite group into the second Master Mode Dungeon. Caduceus Rise gets the hardcore upgrade, with badder bosses, bigger fights, and the richest rewards you can get without raiding.
Tons of level 45+ equipment gets a boost in power to help you better face your foes across Telara.
New to RIFT, new to a Calling, or just looking to streamline your Ascended? Optional Soul templates guide you through Soul Trees, abilities, and hotbars, tailoring a character to any combat role.
Want to experience Telara before you subscribe? RIFT Lite makes levels 1-20 available for free with no time restrictions. Now anyone with a Trion Worlds account can download RIFT and help fight the Blood Storm.
Arriving a few weeks after RIFT 1.7, but just in time for the one-year anniversary of RIFT, is the Carnival of the Ascended itself. Celebrate a year of the most dynamic MMO in the world with the most dynamic party in Telara. The Dragon Balloons alone are worth the price of Ascension in our latest World Event.
