    That is the sad truth about world events in the post F2P Rift. It's also why I pretty much refuse to participate in world events now because of the incorrigible gating put in place.

    If someone wants to grind out x amount of hours for y currency, let them. It doesn't mean that they're not going to have a reason to participate in the recurring events because they might have some/most/all items already.

    The gating shenanigans is such a damn turn off. And I was someone who grinded out the first and second CoTA. This just makes me disappointed.

    The event does not show up anywhere on my UI, the previous one did(archlight flyer) yet the festival of the ascended does not..


    Some friends cant even play the games.....

    Sooooooo, anyone else have this problem, and is anything being done about it??

    Also are patron getting a free 4 yr cake or do we have to buy it from the store instead of getting any benefits for being a loyal PAYING customer?

    The quest is not there, period. I just started playing this game about three weeks ago. Riftgrate claims anyone can do the quest but it awards a ticket for those who have done it previously.

    Possibly; I'm not sure since I'm new to the game and not sure how it's supposed to work, I was only going by what I read in a guide. Someone at Riftgrate brought up that maybe the quest doesn't appear until after finishing the do 50 games quest, which I wasn't able to finish due to illness (got to 30), so I'll try that to see what happens.

    I'm mostly in the same boat, although I still do the weekly for the Doubloons, but that's about it now. Ever since the costs for a single item went up, I basically minimized my participation/grind in the event.

    I know some people grind it out still, either manually or with script though.

    That quest only existed to hand out a crate that no longer exists. As the crate has been removed from the game, so was that quest.

    Ah, okay. Thanks. Riftgrate had it as giving an anniversary cake for those doing the quest for the first time and I was craving sugar. :)

    Yep, my apologies; I've removed the quest from the guide. Wouldn't have minded a free cake though :P

Right now, you have 1-2 players and it is 8 normal mobs, add 1 more player and you need 10 normal mobs plus 4-5 more scaling Empowered mobs. That jump in difficulty is not smooth at all, and I intended to address that. We'll see if I get it in tomorrow for next week's patch.
    omg, please.. put these changes in A-S-A-P
    Bro do you even Rift?

    I'll give them a little defense (or is it? lol)
    Their events, even before going F2P weren't terribly good either.
    The carnival has ALWAYS been a massive grind, just worse every year.

    I'd say their only good even was their first one. The River of Souls one. Everything after that as just been added grind.

    But yeah, it's just gotten worse and worse every event.

    Maybe the developers just see these events as an extra grind (as well as now a way to make some extra cash) and don't see them as I view them, as things that pop up that are a break from the regular grind. Something that should be a fun distraction and not just an intense grind for vanity stuff.

    If they didn't want us with high level gathering skills to do the Materials for floats quest.. Why did they send us out to talk to the Quest giver? Glad I finally found out why the items aren't dropping, thought it was bugged or my UI was messed up.
    I don't give a dam fer a purson as can't spell a werd more than one way.

    Hello, Today I finish 10hr carnival mission with lvl 9 minion with critical success. The mission was called “Hunt for Hidden Pinatas” : the rewards included Carnival earth mask, Auroral Doubloons x 1, 2 carnival foods, 1 Dimension item, 14 Glass Beads and Fae Yule Gift of Giving relic one. In the Fae Gift has Fae Yule Grab Bag, Unique Snowflakes 50, Dark Ice Bell, lvl 60 Epic Shoulders and Infinity Stones.

    Hope this will help. Have a nice day.
