RJ Patch Notes

Note: As with any major patch, there are a handful of known issues in RIFT 2.3. Check this thread for more details as well as ETAs on fixes.


No trials. No tricks. No traps. We’ve made all of Telara free while adding exciting new Loyalty rewards and benefits for the most dedicated Ascended. Learn more on our Free to Play page where we cover new free-player and Patron options plus the RIFT Store, Gifting, and REX.

Home to lush jungles and windswept dunes, Dendrome is the heart of Update 2.3. Explore its vast reaches and battle the Architects and Awakened where new threats rise and burrow. Along the way you’ll find unrivaled artifacts, events, and challenges, meet and drink with old friends in the riotous town of Hailol, and seek the egg of an unhatched dragon god … one whose fate is yours to decide!

Energy from the shattered Blood Storm has given rise to terrifying creatures across Dendrome. The greatest of these menaces ?Kaaz’Ra, Senbora the Devourer, and Ahkane the Eternal ?stalk the open world, battling Ascended in dynamically-scaling raid encounters. Defeat each boss in new weekly quests that offer a chance at raid gear plus guaranteed tokens, infinity stones, and more.

Ahkane the Eternal must die in the Venific Locus, Kaaz’Ra must die in Hive Kaaz’Gfuu and Senbora the Devourer must die in Greenscale’s Crater, or players will not receive credit for their deaths!
