    Default So I paid and now its free!

    So I dropped cash on the Expansion pack and now all can get it for free? So tell me.. Do the people that paid for it get any special perks? Because if not from now on I'm not dropping a dime, I will just wait around until its free.

    Maybe 4.2 is the last free update for this expansion and 4.3 charges an other 40$.
    This would make sense with the typo/rumor we had and it is comparable to other companies who are giving their current expansion for free at the end of their lifetime.

    Yeah, don't buy expansion and do nothing for over half a year. As much as I can criticize TRION on doing many bad things, in this case I don't see anything wrong. It was inevitable that expack will be free for all, it happened sooner than later, so what? People really regret those $40 spent 8 months ago? Lol.

    4.2 seems to be pretty decent, obviously they want to bump population and let everyone enjoy new update.

    I could see 5.0 being b2p, but I doubt 4.3 would be.

    If I will be around I will buy it, because I want to support rift and want to see it in its former glory again.

    Regarding 4.2:
    Any news or update planned for PVP? We desperately needs some dev time, a little bit of attention. Bug fixes, damage reduction, bolstering fixes, better frag drops etc....

    The Celestial Storm strikes on July 19th, 2017!
    Here are the key highlights, which we'll present in more depth in blogs and livestreams as we march toward launch:
    • Vostigar Peaks, a new overland zone with new questlines and several fascinating*points of interest.[/*]
    • Tartaric Depths Normal Mode[/*]
    • New Raid Rifts[/*]
    • New Instant Adventure[/*]
    • New creatures[/*]
    • Four new Primalist Souls, free to anyone who already owns the Primalist Calling. The Ascended Essentials Pack is a great way to gain ALL the souls!
      ⦁ Mystic
      ⦁ Farseer
      ⦁ Predator
      ⦁ Primal Lord[/*]
    Best of all, Prophecy of Ahnket is now FREE. For good. Forever!
    Bring your friends, your old guildmates, your next door neighbor, and enjoy all that this strange and wonderful comet has to offer! All you have to do is log in to enjoy the celestial lands.



    A new prophecy...


    Clouds of magic flow around the entity, swirling and dark. She has been watching from afar, slowly building her forces and honing them for war. At first, she thought the Ascended might defeat Ahnket for her, but clearly they are not up to the task.

    "Pathetic creatures," she sneers as she watches yet another piched battle between Ahnket's constructs and the Telarans. They are not moving swiftly enough, and her patience is at an end. Her desire is focused on the Tenebrean magitech perfected by Ahnket.

    She sweeps off to review the ships of her fleet. They must attack NOW!



    Vostigar Peaks spreads out before you. It is a cool, sweeping mountain range, gently cradling pastoral hills dotted with regal conifers. It is a feast for the senses, and, in any other circumstances, a place where one could enjoy a few years of quiet contemplation... but not now.

    You have traveled to the tail of the comet with Orphiel and Asha, hoping to end this long struggle once and for all. You've learned so much about Ahnket and her wide array of minions and allies as you slowly pushed your way to this serene valley. Surely you can lead the Telaran forces to a decisive victory over Ahnket!

    Battle rings out below you, echoing off the snow-clad peaks. The peaceful setting is marred with violent clashes between uncanny Tenebrean automata and the tyrannical might of the Legions... of Crucia. She has returned!

    You are caught in the middle of this Celestial Storm of titanic power, together with your Ascended allies, the fora and Simulacra Mages of Uttila. Can you survive? Should you leave and let the two great forces tear each other apart?

    And then you hear the terrified whispers... the prophecies that drive this conflict are uncertain and shifting now. Can you really hand victory from one villain to another? Is Crucia’s tyranny an alternative to Ahket’s destruction? The seers are unsettled, confused - images of a feathered God-Queen of Telara switch to a Tenebrean devastation that burns the very source of a mortal’s soul. The weapons of this devastation alternate between steel and bronze.

    Which doom of Telara will you choose? Or is there even a small chance that you can devise a means, with Orphiel and Asha's expertise, to defiantly reject such choices and found a prophecy of peace?

    You realize that you must remain, to defeat not only Ahnket, but the forces of Crucia once more - neither of them must be suffered to win this war.

    It is time, Ascended!

    I'm assuming you forgot the new PVP parts of the patch? Got me kinda worried here.

    Cenderze, the Planar Fragments will be worked on after the 4.2 launch. We do not have a timeline on that yet, but we have tentatively scheduled a livestream on the topic for August. =)

    There is no new PvP content coming with 4.2 - you'll just have to keep killing me the old way.


    Folks, the people who bought POA early already received cool stuff that the new free players will not get: the Ethereal Drake mount, Level 65 boost, Asha Catari's Raiment, Ring of Ahnket portrait Frame, the title Starlord/Starlady, and, if they bought earlier, Opie the Artifact-Hunting Squirrel mount, Sack of Infinite Void and Tenebrean Mystery Box.

    Free players can now access the new zones, levels, systems and questlines - and they can play alongside you. This is more fun for all.

    Our Customer Service team will refund anyone who purchased POA within 14 days of the announcement (June 29th). Please submit a ticket via support.trionworlds.com and they'll be happy to help!

    We thank all for supporting the ongoing health and development of RIFT!

    Players who never bought the expansion can get the mount, wardrobe, portrait by buying the pack for credits or from a credit seller for under 2 rex. Sure they don't get a 65 boost but that can be bought from players aswell.

    They can get Opie mount and the minion card for affinity in just under 4 months with Patron.

    asha cataris rainment, a portrait frame, a title, a mount, and a minion.

    sorry but these arent impressive things to list. the bag and opie are about the only real nice things. and guess what anyone can still get opie and the opie minion.

    for their money what most people got was a live beta.

    you wanna make the game free that's fine and understandable, but you shouldnt forget the early buyers and actually reward them for their loyalty with something. (not even talking about myself here, as my time spent on pts told me all i needed to know)

    theres lots that could be done that would cost you guys nothing, i suggested some loyalty before, maybe some other stuff as well. something for everyone pve,pvp, dims.

    will that please everyone? nope, but at least you try something to say we really appreciate your continuing support.
