News from the Rift

 

SHARD UNIFICATION HAS OCCURRED AND UPCOMING INTERNATIONALIZATION PLANS! posted Oct 14th

http://community.riftgame.com/en/2013/10/14/shard-unification-next-week-and-upcoming-internationalization-plans/

A unified universe of RIFT shards per region.

  • Random dungeons will once again be random across the entire population of the region, warfronts will have a larger pool to draw from for match making, Conquest will have more folks to slaughter, and it will be even easier to visit your friends on other servers!

  • Truly international worlds for RIFT!

    • Want to play on a shard, but experience the content in French while your friend experiences the content in German? We’ll support that! ( languages through the server architectures themselves.)

 

The following transitions will be made automatically with no input or special actions required:

Wednesday October 23rd (North America)

Thursday October 24th (Europe)

 

North America

Necropolis users will be migrated to Seastone.

Shatterbone users will be migrated to Wolfsbane.

Threesprings users will be migrated to Deepwood.

 

Europe

Volan users will be migrated to Bloodiron

Blightweald users will be migrated to Gelidra

Argent users will be migrated to Zaviel

Nomi users will be migrated to Brisesol

 

What if my name is taken on the shard that I’m moving too?

If you are transferred to a shard where your name is taken, you will be offered a free name change.

What if my guild name is taken on the destination shard?

Guilds that have conflicting names will have ! appended to them. We will be offering one free guild rename to any guild with an ! point in the game. Please have an officer of the guild enter a support ticket to claim this.
