The Autumn Harvest Festival started late last week and folks have been busy helping out Atrophinius and his minions prepare for winter. So far the event seems to be a success, with the new spectral mount rewards arguably being the biggest draw for participants. However, shrewd collectors and Auction House players have also been enjoying a bounty of artifacts from the event’s Autumn Eyes potions.

The Potion of Enhanced Autumn Eyes grants you 45 seconds of artifact gathering within the Realm of the Autumn Harvest zone in exchange for giving 10 Autumncap Fungus to Rollo the harvest helper. (There are lesser options available for fewer Fungus, but why bother?) The artifacts seem to mostly be those you would usually find in the open world, from every zone and level range. Collectibles that are only available in raid zones or any of epic or higher quality do not seem to be included in the event, although it’s not out of the question that they could exist but be extremely rare.

Note: This guide was originally written during PTS testing, and as such, there may have been some changes or additions between testing and the event’s release on live servers. Notice any changes? Drop us a line in the comments section!

RIFT 1.10: Calm Before the Storm is now live! With it, we get to explore our brand new autumn-flavored holiday event– also known as Autumn Harvest. This event will run from 9/12/2012 to 10/10/2012.

Yay for fall events! I’ll be the first to admit I adore fall events in MMORPGs. Autumn’s my favorite time of the year, and I dig all the fall colors, tasty foods, pumpkins, goofy Halloween costumes– all that stuff. I love the fact that most of these fall attributes make their way into MMORPG holidays, and RIFT’s is no exception. Trion has added in some fun activities and items, all centered around Telara’s fall harvest. Oh, yeah, and we’ll also get to visit Realm of the Fae one more time, which has been kinda transformed by Atrophinius. The place also comes with a new name: Realm of the Autumn Harvest.
