2.2 carnival title

Ascended, get your balloon-popping shoes and PA building plans ready– RIFT 2.2 and this year’s Carnival of the Ascended World Event are right around the corner! Trion announced today that the patch will land next week on February 27th. RIFT’s second anniversary is coming up and that means that all of the fun mini-games, things to see, and rewards will be returning from last year– along with some new games and goodies taking place in Storm Legion zones this year.

There will be two new games and pie-throwing seems to be involved in one of them. Anything involving pies has to be good, right? As part of RIFT’s second anniversary, Ascendants will be able to pick up a special anniversary cloak. There will also be a new Carnival-specific alternate Codex Warfront to enjoy that involves a bit of luck in the Wheel of Fate and a collection of corresponding achievements that are currently being previewed on the Public Test Server.

RIFT 2.2 will also finally be bringing us our third tier of Planar Attunement that will include these nodes as well as new weapon enchant nodes that were recently added. We’ll also be getting the second tier for the PvP Planar Attunement tree. We’ll be getting a new Steppes of Infinity zone event, too.

Trion announced that RIFT will be holding another Return to Telara free event from March 21 to March 25. During the anniversary week of RIFT (March 21 through April 4), subscribers will receive special bonuses for XP, PA XP, Guild XP, planarite, zone event rewards, favor, and more. Check out the official announcement for all the details.
