Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV

I switched to different projects thinking I've run out of ideas how to continue with this dimension, but in the end, I always get some ideas for little things I can add. I've made a list now and am slowly working through it. Comparing yourself with others is always a bad idea, because there will … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV

Get the Rift expansion for free!

Rift changed their expansion's name to "Prophecy of Ahnket" (due to some legal issues with a charity) and used this moment to start a little promotion: Everybody who logs in from now until May 14 gets the newest expansion for free! After that, you will have to pay for the expansion again, but it will … Continue reading Get the Rift expansion for free!

Rift Dimensions: Hey look! Another dimension project!

I didn't really continue with my tree house project, but I decided to start yet another one. The thing is that I've been playing my Primalist more recently. She's still tiny (level 22), but she wants a place to call home. While walking through my storage dimension that's filled with buildings only, I took a … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Hey look! Another dimension project!

Back in Gloamwood

So here I was, ready to rant about how old zones in MMORPGs somehow always give me nostalgic feelings and how I almost always prefer some old zone over newer expansion ones when I felt like I had a deja-vu. A quick google search confirmed my suspicion: I already ranted about this! Even worse, I … Continue reading Back in Gloamwood

Late to the (PvP) party?

Trion hosted a PvP-focused Rift livestream on Friday* and I realized that I only played a handful of PvP games in Rift and that was years ago already. Thankfully, there is no open world PvP (there is a PvP server but I don't play on that one). On the contrary, both factions can play together … Continue reading Late to the (PvP) party?

Rift: How to get your Rask pet

Rift and Atlas Reactor started a new cross-promotion where you can get a Rask companion pet in Rift by playing Atlas Reactor. If you've never played Atlas Reactor, it's very very easy: Play 5 games in Atlas Reactor. If you don't like PvP, you can play against PvE enemies by clicking on "vs bots" and … Continue reading Rift: How to get your Rask pet

Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

For months, I've been dreaming about making a tree house for my elf (Kelari, actually) rogue in Rift. I had chosen the Stone Grove already, but something didn't "click". It has a huge big tree in the middle and is just asking for a tree house to be built. Yet, nothing happened. I started by … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

Rift: New mount 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar (Giveaway soon!)

Isn't this a real beauty? I've received this mount, the 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar, as a member of the Trion Worlds Creator Program! Rift is turning 6 years old this month, so that mount is part of the 6th anniversary celebration. I have no idea if there are other ways for you to obtain the … Continue reading Rift: New mount 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar (Giveaway soon!)

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

I have recently tried hopping into Elder Scrolls Online again and as I want a fresh start, I looked up guides and possible builds for the classes, to get a feeling for which class I may want to play. While I did that, I noticed that several posts about builds (e.g., this one or this … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?
