Rift 3.0: Nightmare Tide 10/22/14

RIFT remains completely free-to-play with the Nightmare Tide expansion, offering you all of the new levels, zones, class features, and so much more...for free!

== FEATURES ==

LEVEL 61 AND BEYOND: MASTERY ABILITIES
Not only are there 5 more levels of adventure, but Nightmare Tide also introduces a new way to advance your class. From levels 61-65, you can choose Mastery Abilities for each Role slot, allowing you to customize your Soul to even greater heights of power!

NEW ZONES
Three brand new zones await you in the Plane of Water! Plunge through walls of water in Goboro Reef to save the Atragarians from the rampant flames of the Bloodfire Army. Battle the rise of nightmares in the dream city Draumheim. Climb the frozen cliffs of Tarken Glacier, across crevasses to the edge of the cosmos, and confront the Plane of Water's most dangerous avatar: Martrodraum.

Speak with any porticulum master to begin your journey. The minimum level requirement is 58.

NEW AND UPDATED DUNGEONS
New dungeon experiences are live! We've added Gyel Fortress, Citadel of Insanity, and Glacial Maw. These dungeons are sure to provide challenging experiences for characters leveling their way up to 65. And once they're there, each of these dungeons will have an expert mode to tackle, too!

We've updated some classic dungeons, too: try out the new Return to Iron Tomb and Return to Empyrean Core! They're available as expert dungeons once an Ascended reaches level 65.

And, finally, the terrifying Nightmare Coast isn't done with the Ascended yet. First added in 2.8: Madness Wakes, this dungeon now has a level 65 expert mode!

NEW CHRONICLE
Once an Ascended hits level 65, new challenges awaits them; including the new solo Chronicle, Shadow From the Beyond! Expose the beginnings of a mysterious plot devised by a shadowy force from the unknown. Gain insight on the Tenebreans, a mysterious and powerful race from beyond the stars in this story driven chronicle.

NEW SLIVER: THE RHEN OF FATE
In this sliver realm, the prophesy that Finric turns down a path of evil and enslaves the Plane of Water has come to pass. The Ascended must destroy this version of reality to keep it from affecting their own.

NIGHTMARE RIFTS
From Silverwood and Freemarch to Tarken Glacier, Nightmare Rifts are tearing across Telara, offering progressive challenges that make these rifts fearsome indeed. But with more danger come greater rewards—and Nightmare Rifts are a source of the most epic of planar essences.

Competition for these rifts will be fierce, and a Nightmare Leaderboard tracks the most powerful of Ascended as they do battle against the latest threats to Telara.

TWO NEW RAID RIFTS
The Architects of the Plane of Earth are once again building weapons of planar destruction. The Ascended are called upon to thwart this latest technological threat. Take them out in the Plane Crawler Program!

Magical forces are summoning beings directly into Goboro Reef from a distant and dangerous place; The Sea of Ladon! Without intervention, these monsters will cause destruction across the settled seas.

NEW WARFRONT: GHAR STATION EYN
Contact with Ghar Station Eyn was lost centuries ago. Now, battle to be the first to uncover the secret of its dire numerological research into the fringes of mathematics. In your hands, the Manugo number the researchers discovered could be the key to the cosmological constant. However, if possessed by your enemies, it could rain destruction upon the entire plane of water.

Capture Deadly Numbers and hold them to gain points. Those in control of Deadly Numbers may also further make the number go up by activating Manugo Stations. Beware, however, as the Deadly Numbers will destroy your very soul.


MINIONS!
You've gone on so many adventures for Telarans, it's about time they did some adventuring for you. Minions is a resource-gathering minigame within RIFT. It's themed as a card game: collect minion cards, then pick adventure cards for your minions. The more adventures your minions complete, the better they get at finding loot.

How to Start
Head to the nearest Fanatic of the Ascended and take the quest they have for you. They're located at the following locations:
  • Meridian: On the south side of the front ramp of the city
  • Sanctum: In Mariel-Taun's Village near the Marriage Coordinator
  • Tempest Bay: In the Canals near dimension item vendors
  • Atragarian Well: Inside the well, at the end of a short corridor with the crafting NPCs
If you need any help finding them, feel free to talk to any guard in those four locations.

Talk with Stofie (the Minion Card Vendor near the Fanatic) to learn more, or just press V to open the Minions interface. Want to know even more about minions? Check out our introduction article here!

Tips:
  • If the Minion window is too large for you, make it smaller by going to Settings > Interface > Display. There's a UI Scale slider!
  • If you'd rather have some peace and quiet, you can mute your Minions by going to Settings > Audio > and uncheck "Accolades Enabled"!
EXPANDED MENTORING

You can now mentor up to play with your high-level friends by sidekicking! To do so, join a party with a higher level player, right click your portrait, and select Sidekicking: Enable. You will then be mentored up to the max level allowed in your current zone.

Mentoring has also received a balancing pass:
  • Buffs now cancel when mentoring down. Recast them to get proper mentored values.
  • Item procs no longer trigger while mentored down.
  • Stat bonuses from Planar Attunement no longer benefit players who mentor below level 50.
NIGHTMARE CRAFTING
  • You can now reach skill level 450 in all crafting and harvesting professions! Here are the main ways in which it's different:
  • There is no wood for crafting in the Plane of Water. Instead, Foragers process the plants they find into a lumber-like material.
  • Instead of directly crafting most high-level gear, crafters make Amenders that anyone can use to upgrade their gear. Different types of gear require different Amenders.
  • Runecrafters use their own special set of Amenders to upgrade runes.
  • Amenders require Attainium Crystal, which you can get from Minions adventures.
  • Amenders require Risarian Minim. Once you reach maximum skill in a harvesting profession, you start having a chance to harvest Risarian Minim from the nodes (or NPCs) associated with that profession.
  • To level Fishing faster, remember to fish from Schools of Clever Fish, and move on to Tarken Glacier water to reach skill 450.
REAVER RENEWED
  • Due to the extensive nature of this rework, please scroll down to the final post, which has nothing but Reaver details!
AND MORE COMING SOON!
Fall is soon upon us, and the Autumn Harvest will return once more! Plus, Mount Sharax looms on the horizon, opening soon...
