Ten Ton Hammer’s own Jason “Medawky” Bolton had the chance to preview the Fae Yule event earlier this month and learned more than he should have about the affects of mead. Check out Medawky's full preview and the screenshots below to learn more about RIFT’s festive event.
Fae Yule comes to Telara for six weeks of Fae gone wild, corgi companions, and plenty of mead
Freshly freed from Greenscale’s clutches, the Fae of Telara are ready to party this holiday season … and it’s going to get crazy. Starting today, Rift™ kicks off a six week, three phase world event known as “Fae Yule,” an epic in-game celebration that features fancy holiday hats, new quests, a grumpy mead-guzzling satyr, and other festive items.
But it’s not all candy canes and cocoa. Crucia, the Dragon of Air, seeks to ruin the festivities by enslaving the Fae anew, and it’s up to Ascended to crush her plans and save Fae Yule. Throughout the event, players can earn Unique Snowflakes, which can be redeemed for yule-inspired gear, a jolly corgi companion, and a lavish vaiyuu mount.
This weekend, Trion kicks off the celebration with three days of subscriber bonuses, including increased experience, PvP Favor and Prestige, Plaques of Achievement, and Planarite.
Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. Build your own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on epic conflicts that bring you into the story, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids, and so much more.
