Hellbugs have invaded Telara! Get in there and save the world, Ascended!
Prevent these Hellbugs from their aggressive colonization of Telara. These suspiciously familiar invaders have jumped from the other worldly city of San Francisco to Telara to try and make it their home. Don’t let them gain a foothold as they spread from one end of Mathosia to the other.
From Thursday, August 2, 2018 beginning at 12:01 AM PDT until Monday, August 6, 2018 at 11:59 PM PDT, Hellbugs from Defiance 2050 will invade RIFT! During this limited-time event, Hellbug Rifts will spawn more frequently throughout Telara (on both Live and Prime). Additionally, new zones have been added to their rampage, including Scarwood Reach, Shimmersand, Iron Pine Peak, and Ember Isle.
Participating in this Call to Action event can net you some unique prizes. Completing these Hellbug Rifts have a chance to award you:
- Minor XP or Token Boosts (15%)
- Bonus Currency
- Special Dimension Items
- Minions (Live only)
- Wardrobe Skin Items & Bundles
- Special Mounts (including three not previously released on Live)
Note that on Live, zone events use personal loot IRCs. Players get two free rolls per zone per day, after that, they are charged. Prime however, has no gating on rolls.
Besides the event itself, the RIFT store will have special Hellbugs you can purchase as well. The sale runs from Wednesday, August 1, 2018 after the servers come up (approximately 9:00 AM PDT) until Wednesday, August 15, 2018 until the servers go down for maintenance (approximately 6:00 AM PDT).
- Hellbug Mounts
- Hellbug Combat Pet Skin Bundle
- Unique Pet – Tartarus
- Votan Fragger Rifle Wardrobe Skin
- New Dimension Items including Hellbug NPCs
These Hellbug goodies are largely available for either Credits or the new in-game Chaos Mote currency. However, a few are Credit-only.
We here at Trion Worlds, Inc. are excited for Defiance 2050. The RIFT team welcomes the new game into our fold with this new Hellbug-themed event! Also, be on the lookout for upcoming new Call-to-Action events, to spice up your time in Telara. We hope to see you in-game, Ascended!
