    Rift is now F2P

    June 14, 2013 by Grintal

    Looks like Rift is now f2p, as of june 13th. There has been a tone of changes with this major update. A few that I like is the 2 extra bag slots I can have, as well as you can now train in ALL of the crafts on a toon. I was also able to get a few of the world event mounts and pets with the new currency that I wasn't able to get durint the events. You can see a more detailed list of changes on the Patch Notes page.

    It looks like there is a ton of new players checking out the game. There is even a queu for my home server (Deepwood) most of the time. And that means there is lots of players in the beginning zones and some lag everywhere.

    I would also like to welcome all the new players to the wiki here. Thanks for checking things out.

    Rift: Storm Legion is the first formal expansive for the MMO Rift: Planes of Telara. Trion Worlds have released several free content additions throughout the game's history, Storm Legion marks the very first time for a formal expansion release. The release is quite a doozy in itself, offering several new features, additions, and areas for subscribers to enjoy.

    Before the release of Storm Legion, Rift's free content additions included three 20-man raids, four 10-man raids known as slivers, two 5-man dungeons, and four 1 to 2 player dungeons called chronicles. They also created a handful of Master mode 5-man dungeons. These are a step above Expert mode dungeons in difficulty that reward players Tier 1 raid loot. On the PvP front Trion added a…

The expansion, entitled Rift: Storm Legion The game has seen a large amount of content addition already, but Storm Legion is where a huge amount of new content has been added.

    Vacation

    November 4, 2012 by Grintal

    I kind of took an unintentional vacation from the Wiki the last couple weeks. I have been super busy buying my first house/moving in/ getting sick over the last couple weeks.Hopefully I will now have some free time to redo the main page to make it look a bit less cluttered and work on adding the new classes and upgrading the pages for the existing ones after all the changes they added with 1.11: Tempest Rising.

    6,000 Articles

    September 2, 2012 by Grintal

    Recently this Wiki went over 6,000 Articles. GREAT JOB EVERYONE!! Also we got upgraded to the new wiki format. That has made it so the amount of articles pages doesn't update, but hopefully that will be fixed soon. Keep up the work everyone. And as always, if there is something you want to see more of on this wiki, just let me know and I will work to add more of that type of content.

    Animal Wrangler

    August 26, 2012 by Grintal

    I feel like I should add animal wrangler to my resume skill set. Friday just before lunch one of the other employees told me there was a small furry creature running around in the parking lot. I went out there to see what it was and if it belonged to someone in the restaurant. It turns out that I needed to go catch a chinchilla. When we called animal control the dispatcher kept asking if it was a marmot (here in Spokane, WA they are a very common burrowing rodent a bit bigger than a prarie dog). I told them it was a chinchilla and I already had it caught and boxed up, and they just needed to come get it. Alot of marmot related descriptions later she said she would send someone out. When they got there they were surprised to see that it rea…

    Just got home a bit ago and checked out the vid on the new mage soul, The Harbinger. You can watch it here http://www.twitch.tv/mmorpgcom/b/328157910.

    Looks like the new expac is centered around more melee options and now even mages get some beat down ability. My caster might like to get to do some damage when they hit the mobs. Also the added 10 levels will gain you 10 more soul points to spend in the soul trees. The ranged melee ability they showed looked cool.

    Grintal's Music

    August 10, 2012 by Grintal

    I have decided to make my blog a bit more about what I like in general, and a bit less about the game. So I plan to add a musical selection here every week or so. Youtube seems to have a ton of music available so I will just link there so anyone who wants to listen can check it out at no cost. Feel free to leave comments. BTW these selections cover a fairly wide variety of music styles.

    Fishing

    May 8, 2012 by Grintal

    Woot!!! Grintal worked hard and finished the Fishing page this weekend! All that is really left to add is any recipes that are dropped or earned from dungeons or something like that. With any luck I might feel motivated enough to work on the Survival page.

    Also, we went over the 5,000 PAGE mark recently with the help of paulie and a few you others. As always let me knoiw if there is something YOU would like to see more of. This helps me know where to focus my time in adding content to this wiki to make it better for everyone.

    1.8 Infernal Dawn

    May 5, 2012 by Grintal

    Lets start with Grintal is no longer an EQ2 raider. That frees up a bunch of hours to post stuff like this in a more timely manner. I know alot of you have been checking out all the new additions to the game, like Ember Isle instant adventure. It also seems like everyone has at least tried the new Fishing and Survival crafts. I have been busy working on the Fishing page this week while fighting off a cold, so with luck I should have most of the work done this weekend. Also I would like to hear from you on which parts of this wiki you would like to see more of, just post me a message on my page. As always have fun playing the game, and kill some stuff for me. See you in-game!

    1.7 has some cool stuff

    February 11, 2012 by Grintal

    Now that I have had a chance to look at some of the latest update goodies, most of them are pretty nice. They added a new section to the Planar Attunements, the Attunement of War. Now all the PvP'ers have a place to spend those Attunement Points and make it even easier to kill me when I go to the warfronts. Also there was a big gear revamp for all the level 45+ gear (lots of gear pages need to be updated now =( at least you get more stats to make it worthwhile) They also added some premade soul options for us noobs who want to try out a class without spending a couple hours researching the options and figuring everything out for ouselves. Thats right, I'm a slacker. Thanks Trion for helping me be lazy!! There is plenty of other stuff added…

    So please join if you'd like to.

    Thank you,

    Donovan :)

    So all new players, I have a new guild for the Defiants called The Sith. I know it isn't exactly a guild name for this type of game, but I chose it because I like the Sith. I have plans for my guild and if you'd like to know, come and join. I'm usually on everyday, but Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, I might not be on because I have college homework to do. But if I'm not on, you can always look for other guild members and ask them for information. I welcome any Defiant.

    So come and join the Sith if you wish to.


    Have a nice day :)

And when you do, you can travel to the NEW ZONE, EMBER ISLE. I haven't gotten there yet, but some of my guildies tell me its pretty cool. They also added a raid zone there for all you raiders.

    November 2, 2011 by Grintal

    Many thanks go to Grintalcast and Grintalblade for being Wiki's new top models. Due to their efforts we are now adding images that show what items look like when they are equiped. Grintalcast is hadling most of the weapons and doing the photos for the armor so you can see what they look like on a male. While Grintalblade is doing the photoshoots so you can see what the armor pieces look like on a female character. Hopefully over the next couple weeks we can add quite a few images and have displays for most of the items.

    Hey guys, my name is Tae and I am the category manager for Wikia Gaming. I just wanted to pop in and announce that a new admin/bcrat has been promoted: everyone, say hello to Grintal . Normally, Wikia likes to leave the promotion of users to admin/bcrat status up to the community, but in this case, we made an exception. The founder of this wiki, Chel, has not been active for several months, which meant that the wiki did not have anyone with admin rights on active; I began looking at the community and it was obvious that Grintal has been a major force in keeping this wiki alive. He has over 4000 edits, far more than any other user.

    First impressions

    July 26, 2011 by Norwaian

    So, I got Rift yesterday and played a Warrior, Rogue, and Cleric up to level 6 in each. I'm going to try a Mage later today, of course, just to get a feel for all the "callings". I'm biased toward the Cleric currently, but I always have been. I enjoy helping people, and what better way than to bolster them and heal them up when they're about to die? I also enjoyed the Rogue, dashing to somone's rescue and annihilating their opponent if their fight is looking grim. Granted, it's low-level, starting area combat, but, you know- these are my first impressions.

    Mace

    June 19, 2011 by Grintal

    I had another one of those crazy thoughts that just pop into my head and make me giggle cause they are so, just not right. Todays thought was about mace. That handy pepper spray that deters attackers.


    I know that is stings when you get it in your eye. Can you imagine the feeling it would be for insects with those huge eyes? A fly for example, or a bee. One would think it would make a most excellent insect repellant, if only it didn't bother people.

    Just announced! In patch 1.3 coming "early this summer", players will be allowed to transfer their characters to select servers within their territory once per week FREE. Some facts we know about this service are:

    • All your items go with you
    • Guild Leaders can transfer and the guild rank and such go as well
    • You can transfer once every 7 days, free of charge

    This sounds very exciting on the surface but raises several questions. What if I am in a guild, and I don't want to transfer, and the guild leader transfers? What if the whole guild doesn't want to go, but the guild leader does. Does this leave us all out of luck as the GL takes all the level/perks etc with them?

    I would like to thank Chel Ramsey. The work she did on the Foraging page allow me to cheat and just look at and copy what she had done, instead of actually learning how to add pictures to pages. Also the pages that she does always look great, while as mine are much simpler.

    With all the crazy talk about the end of the world coming today, May 21, 2011, I am seriously wondering if the folks at Trion will jump on the bandwagon and give us an EOW event in Rift. If so, I can imagine every zone in the game having full on invasion with not 1, but ALL raid bosses stomping around at once.

    Invasions

    May 20, 2011 by Grintal

    Today when I logged in after work, I ended up in the middle of an invasion happening in Stonefield. Up till today invasions really just meant that it was a pain for me to finish quests and harvest, cause all these mobs were in my way.

    Todays experience changed that. I joined the public group and amazingly it actually had a healer in it! And they even healed!!! Our group was just running around tearing up those footholds, and groups of roaming invaders. I was having a blast. And the loots were't bad either (I could always use more loots).

    Since I started playing Rift, I said repeatedly, one of the only things I missed about "the game that shall not be named" was the Dungeon Finder. That was awesome. You Q'd you got a group, you got to do dungeons you may never of done (over and over!) and you got loot, coin and exp.

    When Trion announced they were releasing their own LFG tool I was giddy. I prepared for my soon to com endless dungeon runs by stocking up on hot pockets, Starbucks coffee (cuz I'm a snob like that) and a whole playlist on iTunes. I was set. The patch came... I logged in and triumphantly I Q'd myself as a healer and sat poised, ready to click ENTER on the group invite I was positive would come right away.

    I shall preface this by saying the Grintal is a bit of a science nerd. Also that if anyone every really ever reads these that you might not get it.

    My idea was Quantum Entanglement Modem for Faster Than Speed of Light Data Transfer. I would hope that i am not the first person to have this idea.

    The general idea is to use quantumly entangle particles as the medium for data transfer over vast distances since what happens to one entangled atom happens to the other instantaneously, irrelavent of distance from the effected particle.

    Since particles have 2 options for spin, they could be used as 1's and 0's. Effecting the particle in one designated modem will transfer the bit to the other designated modem.
