When Trion first announced the special bonus players will receive when RIFT 2.3 debuts on live shards for purchasing Credits on the PTS in order to help the team test the store and its goods, we were told the bonus would be between 50% and 100%. Last Friday, Daglar had an exact figure for the community– and that figure’s fairly impressive. All purchases made in the PTS Item Store will grant players with a full Credit refund this Wednesday as well as an additional 100% bonus. This means that for any Credits spent, you’ll receive double that amount in return to spend on our live shards. That’s a pretty nice incentive.

We’ve just got some extra help from our platform team, and we are clearing up the ambiguity here. We have a way now to give exactly double the number of spent credits back when we go live.
The reason it was vague before is we could not guarantee exact amounts – now we can.
Remember, this is for SPENT credits folks!
As Daglar mentions, make sure to not only purchase the Credits, but to spend them on the PTS in order to be eligible to receive this bonus. Any Credits that are unspent will remain on your account, but will not receive a bonus.
Later in the day, Elrar also reminded players that the Player Test Shard will be locked and brought offline at around 10 AM PST Tuesday, June 11th in order for RIFT 2.3 patch preparations. If you’re looking to take advantage of this bonus, make sure to do so before that time.
