Elrar announced a change coming in next week’s hot fix to the amount of Loyalty granted by purchasing in-game Patron Passes through the RIFT Store. Currently, players receive an extra chunk of Loyalty when buying the item from the store compared to the normal bonus Loyalty rewarded to players with recurring subscriptions. Trion is making this amount of bonus Loyalty equal.

With next week’s Hot Fix we will be changing the Patron Passes available in the RIFT Store to grant 7,000 Loyalty total (the same for Patron subscribers), including the bonus Loyalty from spending the credits you used to purchase the pass.
This means there will no longer be a Loyalty bonus for purchasing a Patron Pass via the store vs. being a recurring subscriber.
We never intended the in-game Patron Pass to provide a bonus, it’s always been intended to offer all players a convenient way to take advantage of the benefits of being a Patron – but feel free to enjoy it while it lasts!
Thanks to all of our Patrons for your continued support, it means a lot to us to see how many have remained and become committed to RIFT – to learn more about the benefits of being a Patron check out our website:
If you’re really in the market for Loyalty and have some extra Credits laying around, now might not be a bad time to use them!
