Gather your lures and pack your bags! Summerfest returns to Telara July 3-23, bringing all the scavenger hunts, fishing, exploring, and companions fit for a season of fun in the sun.

Collect new pets, swimsuits, rings, and Essences plus a new beach party Dimension, Dimension items, and Ravensong, the new armored black raptor mount!

(NEW) SPOILS OF SUMMER

New companions include T-Bone, Flopsy, Party Fowl, and the King, plus undead dancing divas Deathika and Jenniphear. Looking for Ravensong? Complete the “Summer Royalty” Achievement to unlock her as a RIFT Store trophy (or find her as a rare drop from a special set of Troves!).

ZONE EVENT: THE EXUVIA OF KHARGROTH

In tune with the cyclical nature of the seasons, Swarmlord Khargroth gathers those loyal to him and unleashes them upon Telara. Thwart his quest for revenge and loot the treasures of the devilish Fae.

SCAVENGER HUNTS

Join your friends for scavenger hunts throughout Telara – ride a barrel down Scarlet Gorge Falls, risk life and lips to plant a kiss on some of Telara’s greatest villains, and more. You’ll have to follow the clues, though – hunt objectives aren’t marked on your map!

RARE COMPANIONS

Unique and adorable critters return to zones across the continent of Mathosia. Catch and befriend special companions from black bunnies to striped prairie dogs and colorful cobras.

MAKE A SPLASH

Summer fashion’s alive at the RIFT Store! Sport a variety of swimsuits and open Summerfest Party Baskets including items, pets, currencies, artifacts, Essences, or (for the very lucky) Ravensong himself!

SEASON’S TREASURES

Camp out to earn the title “the Counselor” and catch Summer Sunfish from special nodes throughout the event. As you complete Summerfest quests, you’ll earn Friendship Bracelets and Merit Badges you can trade in for seasonal loot.
