    Default Autumn Harvest: Extended


    Update - Autumn Harvest is being extended an extra week and will now run through November 14, 2018!

    Cool breezes and brightly colored leaves usher in Autumn Harvest starting today, October 18th! Wings, heads and tails. Tails? YES, we've introduced our very first tail item in RIFT!

    Take a half dozen toxic spores from the Xarth Mire, mix in some devious beasties, swirl them together with toxic miasma and just like that, we're ready for the season of spirits!

    Claim Lady Glasya's wings in the RIFT Store on Live or Prime! These pinions are loaded with dark power, and are served up in both cosmetic and mount versions in the pack, offering you flexibility in your pairings! This just in: you may also choose Lady Glasya's TAIL from the pack, the very first tail item ever offered in RIFT!

    Noxious Levitation will leave a cloud of poisonous ruin in your wake as you travel across Telara. They will be offered for Credits on Live and a consumable version for event currency on Prime.


    Lady Glasya is only too happy to share her wings with you this year! (Concept art)

    Default Extention of Autumn Harvest

    Thank you for extending Autumn Harvest. I would like for all World Events to last four weeks.
    There always seems to be so much fluff and so little time. As we all know, wardrobe/fluff is the true endgame for any MMO.

    Excusing and tolerating disrespect guarantees it will continue.

    I am usually the first person on the forums advocating for an extra week to events. If there is any significant down times I want that week extension! Usually, event down time happens not because of the event itself but because there are other things such as new content being released around the same time. And they end up causing the servers to go down for hours at a time. But hey, with no devs no new content to mess up the world event!

    I am surprised they added a week, I did not think there was significant reason to even ask for a extra week. Some delayed quests here and there, mainly because we have no devs to make sure everything is set up properly, but not so severe to request an extra week.

    For me personally, I have all the event currency from the year before to get what I want. Then I am just doing the event for next year. But who knows, there might not be a next year. If there is, the events could be drastically changed to where all this currency is worthless anyways.

    For myself, I am a bit sorry that is has been extended. It seems a fairly dull event. Glad for anyone who does like it though.

    So extended means... ended early? Currently no NPCs.

    Just wow. Over 2 weeks and not even a sliver of news about the acquisition and what it means for Rift. I just can't believe the game that made Trion and that was once so successful has come down to this. The game that funded their other games has been used and abused and now left in a desolated state.

    Default Anyone know how long the downtime will be Today?

    I thought I used to log in here and find out why and how long the down time will be Maybe that has changed but since this thread was posted by a GM I though I could ask here, sorry if I am out of place, just want to know when I can get started.

    Yes, it's gone again (NA), but just like the previous 3 weeks, I'm sure SOMEONE will turn it back on, but it may take a day or two.

    Edit: It's back on on NA (Wolfsbane, Meridian)
