Community Weekly Recap

Hi Everyone,

We’re starting a new weekly feature showing some Community highlights from the week that was. So, without further ado, let’s check out some of the fun and informative stuff that happened this week!

Halloween Costume Contest!

We had an amazing turn-out for our first Halloween Costume Contest. From every part of Telara our Community members sent us their most terrifying, bizarre and beautiful in-game costumes. You can check out the English finalists here.  Voting closes on Monday the 7th, so cast your votes now!

Not to be outdone, we’d also like to share with you some of the entries we got from our European communities! You can check out some of the German finalists here and the French finalists here. There are some amazing shots, and we’d like to thank everyone who participated!

Masked Heroes, Ascend!

This week we unveiled a new trailer showing a dynamic duo of costumed crusaders crushing one of our Chronicles.  Check it out here on our YouTube channel.

Extra-Life Winners Announced!

Again, we can’t stress how much fun we had with everyone who joined us to participate in this year’s Extra-Life event, which raised over eleventy-hundred thousand dollars ($1100,000 – the ticker broke!) for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  We’ve pored over the data like we were searching for artifacts and have posted our winner’s list, which you can check out here.

Ember Isle Hits the Spot!

On this week’s episode of Gamespot’s “On the Spot” our very own Simon Ffinch was on hand to give viewers a sneak peek at update 1.6 and our new zone – Ember Isle. The RIFT segment starts around the 48 minute mark, so you may want to fast forward.

There is also a great pre- update 1.6 in-depth interview with Hal Hanlin and Mike Daugherty on Massively, who really lived up to their name with this one!  Be sure to check out the article and the stunning screenshots of one of our prettiest zones to-date.

Armchair Developers, We Want YOU…

to join us every week for some Plane Talkin’ – a new weekly feature we’re launching where we pick apart and discuss various aspects of RIFT with our Community. This week’s topic is zones of Telara and we’d love to hear from you.

Get Your Character Featured on the Rift Riders Podcast

Do you think your Mathosian warrior is twice as buff as Cyril? Is your mage so hot she makes Asha Catari’s rune’s glow and Shyla Starhearth look chaste?  Then our friends at Rift Riders Podcast want to hear from you!  They are asking their fellow Rifters to share their character pride.  Details are in this post on our forums.  We’re really looking forward to seeing the submissions.


That’s all the news that’s fit to print. We’ll see you next week!
