Factions as Fiction – Bridging the gap in 1.10!

RIFT 1.10: Calm Before the Storm might be our last major update before Storm Legion but don’t think we didn’t go all the way!

When the update arrives a major change will take place in Telara – the Ascended will learn to look past their differences and work to fight the Blood Storm together. Guardians & Defiant will come together to face the greatest threat the world, and possibly the universe, has ever faced.

With the death of four of the dragons much has changed and old rivalries are questioned as new challenges arise. Complete destruction of the Blood Storm is now essential if this world is to ever find peace – the Ascended must unite if they are to ultimately travel to the planes and defeat them!

In Update 1.10 players on PvE Shards will be able to team up and communicate with members of the opposite faction outside of the Tutorial. We’re always looking for ways to allow you to enjoy the many features RIFT has to offer together and this is a massive step in that direction.

Update 1.9 is on the horizon and in addition to the other juicy PvP features – such as three-faction Conquest – it includes an increase in the PvP rank cap to rank 50!

New ranks mean new gear, of course, and that means new armor and weapon sets. For a sneak peek of the new gear, we’ve put together a concept art preview of what the Rank 50 PvPer will be sporting this summer after 1.9 goes live!
