    Default Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate

    I don't think i was the shard first getting this minion, as there was no ding, but considering I don't know what i did, it must be rare and might possibly be. Anyhow, posting the information here to pass it along in case others might possibly want this awesome thing.

    Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate
    (top of head, will confirm when i get home. I think i have at least one wrong)
    Earth
    Air
    Fire
    Water
    Life
    Death

    This card was in my rift loot bag when we zoned into the new 10-man, Rhen of Fate. No one else in my raid was awarded it. This must be one if the hidden minions.

    We are hypothesizing that you need minions active and matching each of the resources categories of the card when zoning in to get Drekanoth. To confirm, you need a minion specializing in each of the categories being sent on their respective adventure categories while zoning in.

    At the time of zone in, I had 1 minion on a 10-hour adventure, 3 on 8-hour adventures and 1 on 1-minute adventure. I cannot confirm which specialization categories were active at the time.

    It's not just minion attributes.

    Sent a Death/Arti, Earth/Hunting, Life, and Assassin minions out and ran into Rhen. They were all on 1 minute missions, though only the earth/hunting one matched. Was in a raid with one other person.

    No Drekanoth card after port. Might have some other triggers.

    If I had to guess, all 6 need to match. I haven't gotten the right combo yet to allow me to test this but this is my guess, I was in his raid when it happened.

    Congratulations on finding Minion Card: Drekanoth of Fate! It is indeed one of the hidden minions players can obtain by meeting a specific set of hidden conditions. These hidden minions are a bit different than most you'll find in your adventures in Rift - expect to see unusual combinations of attributes, stat growth, and stamina on them.

    For those curious, here's what the minion looks like:

    We're monitoring the logs to see how many (if any) of each are found. Good luck to everyone in figuring out exactly how to get this one, and in finding more!

    Also: Please let us know what you think - do you want more hidden minions?

    I like the hidden minion aspect. It would be pretty cool if we could link the minion cards though.

    Did you match absolutely everything? I.e., Minion Attributes matching Adventure attributes?

    Man, now I'm interested in what other hidden conditions there are for other hidden minion cards.

    Some possible other hidden conditions at the top of my head:
    • Get all 5 Adventures with 10hr Promo adventures with matching attributes.
    • Get all 5 Adventures with 1min Promo adventures from Minions who all have Assassination (helps with minion exp) attributes.
    • Get all 5 Adventures of the same attribute!

    Thanks for the info! What about the timers on the adventures. Had they been completed and on 'claim' when you entered or were they all still ticking?
    And did you use different duration adventures?

    I tried going in with 5 minions all on the 1min minion experience adventure, all matched up to their adventure card.[list][*]Hunting + Life[*]Water + Artifact[*]Life + Hunting[*]Fire + Harvesting[*]Air + Diplomacy[list]

    Nothing :<. Going to try again with a variety of timers.

    @Jonus: You missed Death and Earth. If it does have to sync with his type, then you'll need them.

    As for mine, I just spammed all 5 out without matching any.

    Earth/Arti on Earth/Arti 1m
    Life on a Life/Arti 5m
    Assassin on Water/Assassin 5m
    Earth/Hunt on a Water/Hunt 15m
    Death/Assassin on Death/Hunt 7H

    No loot bag for drekanoth. Was in a duo raid and zoned in solo. None of the missions were complete when I went in.

    I'm gonna make a wild guess and test it at some point that you need air, water, life, hunting, and possibly assassination running to get it.

    Matches the NPCs at the binding.
