    Default RIFT Half-Birthday Celebration Kicks off August 25th!

    A week of bonuses, free game time, and awesome prizes … and everyone is invited!

    Whether you’re Guardian or Defiant, High Elf or Kelari, a PvE-er or PvP-er, you’re going to find a good reason to celebrate starting August 25th as RIFT™ reaches its half-year milestone. More than a million gamers have activated RIFT in the six months since launch, making it one of the most successful MMORPG releases in history, and from August 25th to September 1st, Trion is rewarding everyone. Subscribers will enjoy a week of substantial in-game bonuses, and new and returning players can play the full game free with no leveling or zone restrictions.

    So since "new and returning players can play the full game free with no leveling or zone restrictions," are the current subs going to have a free week to play also? Like freeze the time remaining for all current accounts for a week?

    Also wondering what/if people under the founders pricing will get anything fun. Since it is six months in, those six months subs are closing in soon to resign up

    On a more positive note, thank you Rift and Trion for the great six months of live sever and a great impression for a first time MMO player. Also, thank you for all the great people that I have met.

    For now, into the future and whatever will come to Telara!

    Best of luck to all players!

    Make sure you have em sign up through your ascend-a-friend link first! (We can fix it for you in-game, but it saves you the time )

    If they sign up for a subscription plan.

    So I guess it goes:
    1)Person (your friend) can download and play the full access game during this time. They do NOT get the half-birthday bonuses and items, but they do have full access to the game otherwise. Free.
    2)Any time through this event, your friend can buy the game for 5 dollars, IF they sign up for a plan. Let's say they get the 15 dollar plan, then it is approximately *20* dollars for the game (likely not the collectors).

    So this is basically like the summer 50% savings lol, except they have a full access trial during that time. Still good. I'll try to convince my bf to download and play it with me, at least for the week.

    The community page mentions increased plaques of achievement and marks of ascension for dungeons and raids. Will there also be increased chance of plaques from Master crafter bags and Crafting Lures? *hint hint*

    Really? So I got my friend to play rift, but he forgot to sign up through ascend-a-friend. Its been under a month since he's bought a subscription..
    can I still get him as my first ascend-a-friend?
