Rift Reporter Episode 83 – Unified and Internationalized
Shard Unification and Internationalization plans top this weeks news, and with Halloween just days away, we countdown to the end of the Autumnfest.
What we did in game:
Mayhem in Mathosia: blah! Freemarch, Moonshade, Droughtlands
Experts: Archive of flesh – Getting really tired of ‘rushed’ LFG dungeons players. Apparently we’re all supposed to be perfect all the time?
Burned through level 50 chronicles to test live streaming, lots of pretty yellow numbers :)
Done the Autumnfest achievement! Got my mount! Woot! Looks super awesome with the pumpkin head.
LFG for fun and profit
News from the Rift
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)
Necropolis users will be migrated to Seastone.
Shatterbone users will be migrated to Wolfsbane.
Threesprings users will be migrated to Deepwood.
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.
