    Default Touch of the Abyss Item? Ever Returning to Game?

    Was just wondering if this item will ever return to the game.
    "Touch of the Abyss" is used for the achievement "Taste the Rainbow." This item can no longer be bought through the world vendor and I remember deleting it like 2 years ago or something so long that even the GMs cannot restore it.

    I remember asking at the time if it will ever be brought back into the game and they mentioned that it *would*. I was hoping this could be brought back into the store under World Events

    Many thx as usual!

    Ok, has anyone seen these anywhere in the game then? Or can anyone from Trion comment on this item? Thanks as usual!

    I know i never originally bought any of the "touch" items, then noticed the achievement for using all of them

    since then, the various seasonal events have included one of them for purchase with event currency...so I think you just need to wait until the appropriate event rolls around, as most if not all the events in rift happen every year, and are not just one-offs

    i'm still missing 3 for my achievement, hoping to get 1 closer with summerfest

    Prediction:

    -We'll have a story-based World Event with Water, either this year or early next year, leading into 3.0 Plane of Water.

    -At some later point, either next year or 2015, we'll start having a Water based annual World Event (like we now have for Life, Death, and Air, but still need it for Water, Fire (Kelari Festival?), and Earth). At those times, we'll get Touch of the Abyss every year.

    Pretty sure it could drop from Pinatas during the Carnival of the Ascended-- or at least, I got a different one of the aura items from one.

    I've been waiting for 'touch of the flames' to drop, for the same reasons. I know I've previously read that old event items would be kept on for future event drops, but I haven't seen them yet. Thought for sure I had a chance with all those bug rifts I did, lol

    It would be nice if they could add those old items to the world event part of the Rift Store!

    I will make sure that these items come back eventually, but I cannot give a time frame at this time. But I am aware of the issue, and would like to complete the achievement myself.

    I seem to recall that one of those items has a tooltip that refers to the wrong plane, but now I can't remember.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Bring back the world event currency exchanger, and then we can use any world tokens to exchange them for old loots? as well as bring the old world event items back into the game

    As far as I remember the Touch of the Abyss buff icon is identical to the Touch of the Shade one. I'll verify if/when I can get back on Aseph for duplicate tooltips or icons amongst the six.

    Sorry to necro this thread, but in case anyone is wondering, this does drop from Carnival pinatas. I just got one, was wondering what it was, and found this thread through Google.

    It's also on the store, if you're not lucky with pinatas!

    But yeah lots of stuff in the world even section drops from pinatas/boxes. You might want to wait til the end of the event before buying something, or you might just get doubles and then you wasted prize tickets/glass beads for nothing (especially if it binds so you can AH it).
