In a recent Trion live stream, Daglar mentioned a bonus that Patrons will be getting every week after the switch to free-to-play by simply logging into RIFT. Details were revealed about this weekly bonus earlier today, along with the details about a new daily bonus that both Patrons and non-Patrons will be able to earn. The daily bonus varies slightly between Patrons and non-Patrons. Here’s the announcement:

As you know, I don’t like to advertise things before they are in full swing and nearing completion. As of today, it looks like one of our additional benefits is in that state.

We are offering a daily login bonus to both patrons and non patrons. And a weekly login bonus for Patrons only.

This bonus is claimed on the home screen and contains a variety of goodies. IMPORTANT: This is only claimable on one character per day or week as appropriate – so choose wisely. The chest is also bind on Account so you can trade it between different characters on the account!

Daily Bonus – Non Patron
100% chance at a random artifact. The maximum rarity of the artifact is based on your loyalty level. There is a low chance at receiving a premium item from our boosts and services section or bonus currency. The chances scale based on your loyalty level.

Daily Bonus – Patron
Same as above except that the chances are higher at premium items, and you have a chance to get additional items that give you bonus loyalty. The values for currency awarded are also higher.

Weekly Bonus – Patron Only
100% chance at an artifact. 100% chance to receive a chest key. Higher chance and value of weekly bonus currency or premium items. And more chances at bonus loyalty.

Daglar also mentioned later in the thread that the bonuses were tied to the game’s actual data center, which means that these bonuses can only be earned once per day/week even if a player has multiple accounts and characters across different shards.

    That seems great! I can’t wait for the F2P shift :D

    In regards to “actual data center”, what if I and my son have accounts and share time on the same computer? Will he and I have to decide which of us will get these bonuses or will the data center realize we are two completely separate accounts?

      That’s an excellent question, and I’m not entirely sure of the answer. Daglar didn’t go into more details sadly, but hopefully the system will feature multiple checks for situations like that. I guess we’ll find out!

        The wording in-game for the items is “per account”, so I think you’ll be fine!
