    Default Summerfest Goodies! -Swimsuits, Pets, Wardrobe!

    With Summerfest coming on Thursday, the Rift Store has been updated with some beachwear and cool companions for you

    First up, the essential Swimsuits...



    Unfortunately the Teal and White swimsuit was suffering from the lower body not showing bug.

    I thought i'd show them off with my Female char, male Dwarves and Night Elf screenies can be requested

    From left to right: Red and White, Black and White and Blue and White swimsuits



    We also get a few new costume wardrobe pieces, saw Swarmlord's shoulders, a wardrobe sword and Hammer



    Some views of the Shoulders and Hammer in Wardrobe




    This year we also get new level 60 Binds to Accountrings and essences added, selling for both World Event currency and Credits, whichever you prefer.

    Think those credits prices are to high.
    A 2 piece swimsuit costs more than a set of premium costume items.....
    I hope theirs a way to get them in-game also and not just the (rapidly becoming overpriced) cash shop.

    I slacked on showing the new pets so thanks for the excuse to post again

    The rings are 5,000 Summerfest Merit Badges and 3 Summerfest Friendship Bracelets each

    The essences are 4,000 Merit Badges and 3 Bracelets each.

    Anyhow, onto the new pets which i left out by mistake in the first post

    There are three new companions, Snaggletooth, Starflare and Sunset, this is bought with credits only





    Unfortunately i only had enough Event currency to buy Snaggletooth and as credits spent on PTS is now linked to Live i didn't buy Sunset

    Here you go



    There is still a costume box that I can't preview.
    It has no name on it and the tooltip is bugged so I have no idea what it can be.
    For all you new Rifters who want more than just to play: Be ascended!
    Click this link, ascend and enjoy a better gameplay with a Free 16 slot Bag, a rune granting your weapon a special glow, a stunning cloak, a unique title and more.

    Those look pretty nice. I'd buy them all if they didn't cost a small fortune.
    I'm so BORED

    How are the merits earned?

    Same here.

    But based on the previous world event (Carnival) where prize tickets (or called merits in this new event) and glass beads (or called friendship bracelets) dropped, you can get them from pretty much everywhere - completing zone events, closing rifts, participating in warfronts, etc.

    Hopefully Trion won't be as stingy as they were last years with the beads and tickets. You had to work your tail off just to get enough for basic things and it was a HUGE pain if you wanted to collect enough for a pet or something nicer.
    In life only those who play the game can be winners...

    Ermagerd my Mage desperately needs the red swimsuit. Nothing says awesome like sexy and the color red. Honestly I like the style of the black one slightly better with the thin straps, but I'll live

    The in-game prices for these items look, to me, that they are inflating the cost to encourage buying the stuff with credits.

    Particularly how many of the items need 3 bracelets and I believe, if it's like last year, you only get 1 bracelet a week.

    I am excited by the event, but I'm a little sad that some items are credits only. The timing is simply bad for us because of a forced furlough on my hubby. Otherwise, I'd be all over those swimsuits! I like the graphics of them very much. I hope they rethink some of the prices. Maybe they'll surprise us when it goes live?

    If a digital bathing suit that costs roughly $6 ruins an entire month long event for you, I weep for our species. Why not support the game you play with a measly 5 or 10 bucks for what you want?
