    Default 4.2 CELESTIAL STORM: July 19



    Prepare for war or prepare to flee. Crucia has come for Ahnket and is willing to crush any who get in the way.

    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!

    Can we expect PTS to open soon and release the masses into 4.2?

    This link is incorrect. It should be pointing to riftgame.com.

    You might see it as offtopic, but I'm curious about the redesign or new designs rather.

    So Ahnket is a zombie-mech-centaur-type thing now opposed to a egyptian-themed motherboard?
    And Crucia is a tyranno-cyber-saurus?

    More of Vostigar? (to be honest we had some confusion with Xarth before when the only picture we had us looking at was some bushes and a wall, albeit well drawn, nothing extremely descriptive of the actual zone).

    Art team, please post more drawings <3

    Is there a cost to 4.2 or what? I haven't seen anyone say. I'm not in any eager mood to drop another $60 on another xpac anytime soon.

    Maybe those could be screens of new raid rifts. maybe they have mechanics and bosses like the NMT ones.

    Since I'm maxed out of level and planar xp, not a lot of excitement for a new zone.

    All Hail Crucia!


    Seriously though, the pictures are confusing. The black rocks/mountains with blue glowing lights was taken long before Vostigar Peaks was announced. Is the mountains with blue glowing lights are part of Vostigar Peaks? I hope not, they are completely different. Also, the trees in the autumn picture are NOT in the ground. Is that intended or a mistake? :P

    Any word on new loyalty tiers? I think a polka dot tier with cow pattern hellbug mount would rock. (Just a thought)

    I AM BORED!!!

    Default Best of all, Prophecy of Ahnket is now FREE. For good. Forever!

    So what you are saying is that I should have just waited a couple of days instead of buying it? Is there any chance for a refund or anything?

    Many MMOGs offer previously paid content for free some time after launch. The window of time varies, but we are hoping that folks are pleased that it's going free now, rather than say, some time next year. The massive outpouring of thanks after the free POA weekend we offered last month spurred this move.

    Thank you to all who supported ongoing RIFT development and operations costs by purchasing the expansion and enjoying the advance access to content. We hope that you now also enjoy playing together with your FTP friends... all back together again.
