You’ve gone on so many adventures for Telarans, it’s about time they did some adventuring for you. Minions is a resource-gathering minigame within RIFT. It’s themed as a card game: collect minion cards, then pick adventure cards for your minions. The more adventures your minions complete, the better they get at finding loot for you !
Minions are Special Collectibles
Your collection of minions is special – it’s shared by all of your characters on a server cluster (NA or EU). This means that you can only add one of each minion to your collection per server cluster (the minion card’s mouseover tooltip will tell you if you’ve already collected it). You can get your first minion card from a questgiver in Meridian, Sanctum, Tempest Bay, or Atragarian Well.
Your minions can return with crafting materials, Dimension items, artifacts, or Notoriety. In other words, you can use minions to do some of your harvesting, help you earn rep, and find free Dimension items for you. If you send a minion on an adventure that provides loot, it will always return with at least one piece of loot. Be aware that the character you have logged in when you claim an adventure’s reward can affect what loot you bring in!
