    This is a great addition to the game. The old Mayhem in Mathosia was always a lot of fun and a bit chaotic, and the old Promo week events were a good way to earn mounts, if a bit slow perhaps. I think this is a wonderful way to bring those two things back into Rift for current players to experience. I also really appreciate that you guys will convert the currency one to one for whenever the other Call to Actions happen.

    I'm in. Might make a purchase too. Hesitant but I may console myself with knowing its not the upper $10s or into $100s I would otherwise spend if RIFT had more frequent systems polish and larger content release. A fix up for Mayhem is something I want to reward if I enjoy.

    Yes, yes, yes and yes. This makes me SO happy. This is a perfect solution to all those old promotional events. I have been wanting them back since I only got 1 unicorn and no other Promo mount in all the years I've been playing. Combining this all in Chaos Motes is genius. Thank you!

    Hopefully they won't all be locked behind credit walls like the hellbug mounts are. Will the three hellbugs that dropped from Rifts still do so?

    There will always be a store component as well, because... well we still need to run a viable business. That said, when the vendors turn and quest givers turn on tomorrow, you will find many of those Hellbug mounts also available on the vendor for purchase with the Motes.

    So we are striving to have a balance there.

    The drop tables for the rifts are unchanged, so yes. Plus some additional Hellbug loot chances added to the zone events in addition to the shared Call to Action loot tables that turn on during the events.

    You make a lot of players happy!
    I love so much how all these Call to action events will work!

    Some credit walls were absolutely expected, and no fuss from me about it. It was just a bit disheartening to see them ALL credit without knowing the vendors would have them on official launch. A bit of missing information on my part I see! Thanks for the clarification!

    Hey all,

    The hellbug event isn't giving currency the way that it should. Sorry about that! The good news is that we've put in a fix that will go live tomorrow morning. This means we'll need to take the game down for a couple of hours tomorrow. More details can be found here: http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...-3-2018-a.html. For those of you that've already done some of the rifts and didn't get your rewards, we will work on granting your currency back tomorrow after the patch. In the meantime, please do not wait to turn in your dailies as that may set you back a day on getting rewards.

    Thank you,

    -RIFT Team

    So we're still to expect some kind of refund then. Or reimbursed for the ones we've done so far (however you seem to keep track of this).

    I'll hold your word on that one!

    Default I did NOT receive the Chaos Motes, as promised.

    I logged in this evening, well after the patch, and even though I turned in my quests yesterday, I did not receive 10 motes each as a reward.

    CTA dailies don't care if you're mentored. There are at least 3 70s in every event making it a royal pain to get dailies done. After Grim Remembrance dailies awarding regardless of level, I was hoping CTA would have been checked for this problem.

    I hope future CTA's will deny progress to people nuking everything at 70, please!

    Question Where?

    I must be blind, but where are these rifts supposed to be? I've been running around and shard hopping since Aug 2, and I have yet to see a single hellbug (bar one foothold in the Dendrome). All the fire rifts I've found have seemed to be the one with the wasps
