Recently, a friend and I, returned to Rift after a good year or two. Back then we had both subscribed to the game for a couple of months.
Now that we returned after it turned free to play, we both received a couple of benefits. Also, we both bought the Storm Legion souls.
However, I seem to be constantly getting a moderate bonus to all planar currency earned. This applies to both planarite and sourcestones. For instance whenever I earn 50 Inscribed Sourcestones for one of the daily quests on the ship wreck in Freemarch, I always get an extra 8. Or sometimes when I earn a vile sourcestone during Instant Adventure, I get an additional bonus sourcestone.
Now my question is, why does this happen to me but not to my friend? I can't remember what I did to trigger this. I always assumed it was one of the many perks you get when you return after you've been a subscriber, but this doesn't seem to be it.
