PTS Event Today, 9/21 @ 3:30PM PDT – Chronicles of Telara!

Posted by on 21 September 2011

Hail Ascended!

Join us today (9/21) on the Public Test Shard (PTS) @ 3:30PM PDT (10:30PM GMT) for another round of testing the new Chronicles of Telara, including the Chronicles of Ascension which introduce you to Planar Attunement!

Chronicles of Attunement

Chronicles of Attunement are our introduction to Chronicles and a way to celebrate all players achieving Level 50. With the release of the update all current 50′s and anyone to achieve 50 afterwards will receive an in-game letter from their faction leaders putting them on a quest and introducing the new feature. Unlike previous chronicles, this is intended to be soloable and will lead to you achieving your first Planar Attunement points kicking off the new Level 50 experience.

In the Guardian Chronicle you currently may be unable to complete it when going to talk to Cyril for the final time. We’re aware and will have this resolved prior to its release – apologies you won’t get to see the final celebration!

Chronicles of Telara – Hammerknell Fortress & Greenscales Blight

The gates of Hammerknell have been shattered and you and one companion must investigate the corruption of King Molinar, lord of Hammerknell. The king and his son, Prince Dollin, brood in their dark throne room, corrupted by the death energies that surround them. Discover the mystery of what befell the King and his heir as you explore the ancient fortress and the evils that now haunt the halls.

On the other side of the great continent, beneath the ruins of Caer Mathos, the prison of another ancient dragon stirs with the wild energies of life. Greenscale, Prince Hylas, and the minions of the Aelfwar have created a treacherous garden – its throbbing organic mass seeking to extinguish the life of all intruders as an ever-changing hedge maze seeks to confuse and drive you deeper into its maw.

Chronicles of Telara are a new feature arriving in RIFT with Update 1.5, allowing up to two players to delve deeper into the history of Telara and its heroes. The intended difficulty provides a challenge to freshly minted level 50′s and reward even the most battle hardened Ascended with a deeper understanding and new places to explore within the world around you.

Character Copy to PTS! 

You can now copy your character to the Public Test Shard! Simply click the Transfer button when you’re at Character select on the Live client and select “Copy to PTS” – it’s as easy as that! (though there may be a few bugs/limitations we’re working out). We will no longer be offering Gear/Leveling vendors with the introduction of this feature (except when testing requires it.)

You will need to download the PTS client if you have not done so already, this is approximately the same size as installing the full game and may take some time. For more information about PTS and how to access it please see:
