RIFT news » Mounts! LIVE: Planar Plucker, PRIME: Aurora & More!
The Planar Plucker was built from scavenged bits of Crucia’s defeated army; our take on beating swords to ploughshares! This brand new mount model is ready to help you harvest plants and wood without dismounting!
RIFT Live store update!
If you do any harvesting at all, you know the drill; run to a node, dismount, harvest, remount, run to the next node. Hop off, dig, hop on, run, hop off, dig, hop on… it is time-wasting, achy-breaky work! Stoop no more!
Ride high and reap well with the brand new Planar Plucker! This beauty comes with a lifetime warranty. You’ll never have to take it in for servicing, and thanks to Crucia’s stunning no-waste fuel cells, the Plucker is entirely energy efficient! By the way, no need to mention to her that we made off with the tech. That might not end well.
These are rare and highly sought-after mounts, and like the Greenata, is available for direct sale on the store! They go on sale April 25th, for a limited time. The Planar Plucker is available only on RIFT Live; Prime folks don’t even know who Crucia IS yet. They’ll find out soon enough…
We’re also bringing back the White Squirrel Mount for direct sale! As much as we all love squirrels, they have not managed the leap to Prime yet, so they will be offered on our Live service only!
Many of you have asked for combat pet skins to come back, and in honor of Defiance 2050’s Beta weekends, we’re bringing back the Hellbug combat pet skin bundles! A different hellbug skin for Druids, Necromancers, Rogues and Warriors! Snap them up fast! Available on the RIFT store on our Live service only!
RIFT Prime Store update!
We have some lovely new offerings for citizens of Vigil! On April 25th, you’ll be able to collect lovely new-to-you mounts, companion pets and costumes! All are available for credits on the RIFT in-game store.
Aurora, regal and stunning in every shofting shades of blue, will increase your speed by 60%, and will scale up if you acquire faster mounts over time. Aurora was first made available on Live through the Carnival of the Ascended, and she has now made her way to Vigil!
We know many of you have enjoyed your Armored White Tiger, but who doesn’t love to switch things up now and then? Let’s take a ride on the dark side with the Armored Black Tiger. It’s ebon hues are perfect for formal occasions or for sneaking up on your enemies at night. He offers 60% speed boost, or will match the level of your fastest mount.
It’s raining cats and dogs – here, take one of each!
Corpus Kitty – everyone’s favorite undead cat. Clearly she wasn’t ready to leave this plane after her seven lives were used up! A perfect companion for practitioners of dark arts, or those who just want something a little less ordinary.
Kirby – you’ve seen him lounging magnificently on our livestreams, and now you can help Kirby get the exercise he so desperately needs!
A change of costume may make all the difference. Don the Centurion’s Bundle or Sanctuary Guard’s Bundle and shine in any circumstance! Completely stain-proof, these outfits will not be ruined after a long night’s hunting foray or drunken adventure through the dankest dungeons!
