    Default Trion, got a superb idea for you!

    Hi,

    have you ever thought to make a Semi-Patron status for players? say it costs ~60% of the normal patron pass/monthly fee and offers maybe only some of the patron buffs or all the buffs but with reduced benefits. You know even big rivers start from small creeks.

    Example reduced bonuses:

    Semi-Patron buffs:

    Buff Description

    Semi-Patron's Experience Increases XP gained from ALL sources by 20% for 2 hours (40% for 1 hour?)
    Semi-Patron's Notoriety Increases Notoriety gained from ALL sources by 20% for 2 hours
    Semi-Patron's Token Increases Token Currency gained from ALL sources by 20% for 2 hours (does not apply to Frozen Eclipse Stones or Myrmidon's Marks)
    Semi-Patron's Favor Increases Favor gained from ALL sources by 20% for 2 hours (or 40% only player kills 2hr? to attract PvPers)
    Semi-Patron's Prestige Increases Prestige gained from ALL sources by 20% for 2 hours (or 40% only player kills 2hr?)


    Semi-Patron Summon Abilities

    In addition to the Semi-Patron Buff Abilities, Semi-Patrons will have the ability to use different summons to access useful services like banking and mail from anywhere.

    Semi-Patron Summon Abilities:

    Summon Class Trainer Summons your class trainer to train abilities or reset souls from anywhere
    Patron's Mailbox Send and receive In-Game mail from anywhere
    Summon Banker Deposit and withdraw items from your personal bank from anywhere
    Summon Guild Banker Deposit and withdraw items from your guild bank from anywhere
    All summon abilities are on a 180 minute cooldown.


    Semi-Patron Permanent Buffs:
    1. 5% Increased Token Gain which applies to all dungeon/PvP currency
    2. 5% Increased Mount Speed
    3. 5% Discount for all Credit purchases in the RIFT Store
    4. Shard Priority Queue - This will give you higher priority in the free to play player queue.

    It's called a 3 day patron pass, available in the store.

    That could work out for those who aren't willing to spend as much as full Patron status, but still want some vial benefit. It also excludes the Artifact tracking vials which I have a feeling will become quite popular (as in, used more often by Patrons who already receive them) when 2.6 hits.

    Will probably require a more compelling name though; but sounds good.

    The 3-day Patron Pass was removed from the store when they introduced the chance of receiving Greenscale's Lockboxes of up to Transcendent quality in the Patron Weekly Bonus Gift.

    Not sure if it's still included in those 'Weekend Hero' Bundles that pop up on the weekend or if those bundles even exist anymore.

    This could be offered only as 30 day patron pass and with reduced priced subscriptions.

    Plus, I'd like to get 2% of the revenue growth they make with this suggestion. ;)

    How about an Ascended's Favor Pass that gives half of the gains patrons get but still not the AH or any loyalty perks for 15 days that could only be given as a gift and, was around 500 credits.

    We could buy them to encourage friends to become patrons and, give them a small taste of the benefits but still keep being a patron a better choice for the perks.
