Rift Update 1.6 Holiday World Event Preview - A Joyous Fae Yule

Holiday events are all the rage this time of year and Trion enters the fray with the first Rift holiday event - Fae Yule. Unlike other games though, this one actually matters. Check out our preview from the Public Test Shard.

Tis the season in MMOG land for massive holiday events. Everywhere you
look there is an announcement about festivities in our favorite virtual
worlds. Trion so far has skipped these seasonal celebrations, seeming
to focus more on playable content than the frivolity of various
observances. Well break out the party hats folks, because coming with
the soon to be released Update 1.6; style="font-style: italic;">From the Embers,
all of Telara will ring in the Fae Yule.

While some games throw holiday events out there as mini-games or
sideshows, the Rift team is turning theirs into a major World
Event.  We have been checking this event out on the Public
Test Shard and so far it has been a blast. Boglings and Fae creatures
have moved into the capital cities and set up their celebratory shops.
New daily quests and new items abound, and of course the creatures from
the planes will have something to say about all this merrymaking.

Featured below are some great screenshots of the action and
festivities, along with some of what you can expect as part of the
world event. Keep in mind that this is still test shard information so
it may change radically before it moves to the live shards.

Unique Rewards

Following suit from past world events, Fae Yule will feature its own
unique currency – which is the very theme appropriate snowflake.

Currently there is a whole set of costume armor, a fancy holiday hat
that looks like something St. Nick would wear, relics, a mount, a
collectable pet and several other cosmetic items of interest available
for purchase. Completing daily quests will reward you with 25 Unique
Snowflakes as well as a Jingling Bell that holds various rewards

style="font-style: italic;">

Phase 2 recently kicked off on the PTS and who should appear?
Atrophinius is back and boy is he thirsty.  Those that have
experienced Atrophinius in various forms of content throughout the game
know that this powerful Fae will do just about anything for a six pack,
and woe to anyone who doesn’t follow through on their promise of that.

Snowflake? Unique up on it.

From the looks of things Update 1.6 should roll out within the next
week or so, so we won’t have to wait long to begin our Joyous Fae Yule!
