The Carnival of the Ascended has come to Tempest Bay, and as dragon piñatas and festive parades spread across Telara, Ascended young and old join in the festivities commemorating their victories over Crucia and her forces. While the threat of the Storm Legion still hovers in the distance, now is a time to renew, recharge, and be proud of the victories hard-won.
RIFT 2.2 sees the Carnival return with all-new games, rewards (yes, dragon balloons!) and zone events. Join in the fun, celebrate the second anniversary of RIFT, and dive into new tiers of Planar Attunement, new Warfront action, Hard Mode raids, and more!
The Carnival is more fun than ever this year. Collect glass beads, revel in pie-stomping and throwing contests, and challenge yourself in two new games of skill as you gather colorful hats and awesome mounts.
Danger and excitement await in this alternative Warfront mode as the Wheel of Fate randomly assigns combatants against each other in the field of war. Use your cannons to assault the Codex and attempt to seize capture points from your foes.
Mark two years of RIFT with a special Anniversary Cape. Buy this golden cape in the carnival prize store and show your pride to all.
Hit harder with a new tier of PvP PA. Unlock additional boosts to Valor and Vengeance, plus PvP-specific abilities to rule the day.
Tier 3 PA has arrived! Loaded with extra weapon- and stat-based enhancements, T3 increases planar-themed buffs, adds powers including group/raid summons, and more.
Play for free from March 21 to March 25. Revisit your veteran high-level Ascended characters and experience all the awesome additions to RIFT since the launch of Storm Legion™.
Generals of Air and Death re-emerge in new Hard Mode encounters set to test even the mightiest Ascended. Gelidra and Zaviel join Progenitor Saetos and Kain as the first Storm Legion bosses offering added risk for added reward!
