    Default Summerfest 2016 Guides and Stuff

    Hi everyone!

    Summerfest begins at 3:30 PM PST (game time) Thursday, July 14, 2016.

    Here are a few things you might want to check out for the event:

    Summerfest Achievements & Scavenger Hunts:
    http://pwniversity.com/rift/holidays/summerfest-guide
    Estranged Brew Phase 2 quest updated locations.

    Plane of Water Scavenger Hunt:
    http://forums.riftgame.com/game-disc...est-guide.html

    Where do you get the Summerfest currency?

    Summerfest Merit Badges are obtainable from the World Event-related daily quests and by participating in planar creature-related activities such as killing Invasions, closing Rifts and completing Zone Events during the Summerfest World Event.

    Summerfest Friendship Bracelets are the limited World Event currency and are obtained from Weekly quests related to the Summerfest World Event.

    How many bracelets can you obtain?
    7 per character. For details on how and where, read this.

    New this year! Artifact pinatas!
    Pinatas spawn in all the zones, bust open the pinatas and about 20 artifacts drop, you have about 10 seconds to loot as many as you can. If you are mentored down you'll get some loot too. It might be a good idea to group up. You can collect artifact sets to obtain new Artifact Pinata Ball dimension items (there are 7 to collect, photo of the orange one) Here is the livestream where Dev Dead Simon talks about the new pinatas and more artifact goodness: https://secure.twitch.tv/trionworlds...11?t=02h01m54s

    If you complete all of the Summerfest artifact sets you will receive "Little Shiny" a new companion pet that... drops artifacts from time to time. Check your Achievements (H) section under World Event > Summerfest.

    New Minion Card: Mitch
    There is a special minion card, Mitch and he has a chain of adventures for you.
    3.7 Summerfest Mitch Minion Chain Questline Guide



    There is much more for Summerfest, I haven't listed everything. Feel free to add things I've missed below.

    Have fun!

    in the live stream a few weeks back they said there would be an artifact hunting mount, I thought from summerfest. Is that still in or is it coming later?

    Thanks

    It's a portrait badge, so it sits on top of your portrait frame. Here's how it looks:

    Many thanks for the beautifull guide Nouvae !
    And Many Thanks Trion team for all these beautifull new items , good you had plenty of bug repellant at the office, cause this looks to be a hot summerfest , so glad to have it up and running now!

    oooh I love the Alsbeth outfit and the rogue/scoundrel whats it called too, though my 1st priority is to get the stunning Fae bundle this year , luckily some bracelets left from past allready..
    Coming from a 42 year old female, I hope we`ll see more such skimpy and stylish feminine outfits for players in the future too, like, hint hint, the Defiant female guard outfit that has a different player armor, maybe a special "npc-like" summer version of that next summerfest- or winter, cause can`t wait !

    Just hoping I can whip some lower lvl alts to shape these weeks to complete the hardest challenges in mathosia for some more bracelets, hard= namely Shimmershand icecream run, cause the dimension items baskets look like a must have too...And.. and..so many things to aim for !
    Well, raining heavily outside here atm, so!
    May even have to visit good old purse and get some more credits, those dimension birds are amazing...
    Happy Summerfest all players and devs !
