Professions (Crafting)
Crafting is one of the most common aspects of MMO games. Crafting mechanics in RIFT are
not much different from the other games, but for a newcomer it might be a bit overwhelming.
In this section of the guide you will find a short explanation on how it all works and what to
begin with.
The crucial part of Crafting is choosing a Profession. There are nine Professions in RIFT, and
they split into two different kinds gathering and crafting Professions. You can have three
Professions at the same time and they dont have any effect on your Souls. Heres a list of all
the available Professions:
Gathering:
Butchery: gathering hides, bones or teeth from dead animals. Butchers can turn hide
into leather by using Loom (a tool found in all the smaller villages and main cities)
Foraging: gathering plants and wood, and then turning it into planks by using a
Workbench (a tool found in all the smaller villages and main cities)
Mining: gathering ore and turning into bars by using a Forge (a tool found in all the
smaller villages and main cities)
Crafting:
Apothecary: creates flask, potions, filters, tonics and vials
Armorsmithing: creates all sorts of armor, as well as shields
Artificing: creates jewelry and caster weapons
Outfitting: creates cloth and leather items
Runecrafting: creates runes used to enhancing weapons and
Weaponsmithing: creates melee and ranged weapons
Professions can be bought at specific Trainers located in villages and cities. Each Profession
has its own level, which you grow higher by gathering or crafting items. Each Profession also
has Ranks. In order to advance to a new Rank, you need to gain a specific level of your
Profession. The higher the Rank, the better and more valuable items you can craft.
Rank
Required Profession
Level
Cost
Novice 0 10s
Skilled 75 50s
Expert 150 2g 50s
Master 225 10g 50s
Game Guide 16 / 29


Rifts - explanation
RIFT is not very different from all the MMO games out there. Although it started something
that later on has became really popular in MMO games - Global Events in this case, Rifts.
Rifts appear randomly, there is no set time. You will see an icon on the map showing where
theres a Rift at that time. There can be multiple Rifts in a region at the same time.
Theres a few different kinds of Rifts that represent the primal elements: Air, Death, Earth,
Fire, Life and Water.

Rifts usually have three regular and two bonus stages, although a Rift can go even up to 10
stages. The first and the second stage of a Rift requires players to eliminate a few minor
mobs, but in the third stage (that has a timer) appears one or multiple bosses. If the players
manage to kill all the enemies in time, then all the bonus stages will start. The first bonus
stage also has a timer and gives players another wave of mobs to defeat. And again, if they
manage to kill everything in time, then they will go into the second bonus stage. In this stage
another boss appears, but this time it will be a lot harder to kill.

Game Guide 17 / 29


There is usually a lot of people in the area, so closing Rifts shouldnt be a problem.
Sometimes though, people dont pay attention to Rifts. Even though Rifts disappear after 90
minutes, they can create something that is called Footholds, and these are small ares that
are overrun by a small group of mobs.
There is also a few objects that appear in the area of a Rift. You can only use them once, and
they are:
Blue Crystals gives a buff Source of Vigor, which increases energy regeneration for
30 seconds
Green Crystals gives a buff Source of Vitality, which increases health regeneration
rate by 4% for 30 seconds
Red Crystals gives a buff Source of Power, which increases damage dealt by 25% for
30 seconds
Tombstones gives a Companion Pet that will attack the enemies around the Rift (only
found at Death Rifts)

Invasions
There are three kinds of Invasions: Faction, Single and Zone.
Faction Invasions are a grou pfo mobs attacking an enemy faction. Defiant players will be
attacked by raiders from Guardians and the other way around.
Single Invasions are small armies of enemies that come out of Rifts. There is also a boss
with a lot of HP and four smallers mobs. These armies are headed towards Wardstones in
order to destroy them, and players are meant to stop them reach that goal.
Zone Invasions are the most dangerous kind of Invasions, their goal is to completely destroy
the whole region. The first part of that Invasions usually requires players to close a set
amount of Rifts. After doing that, there will appear an Elite Boss Mob, with a massive amount
of HP and special abilities, and defeating him requires a huge group of players. Stopping that
Invasion may not be successful when theres not enough players.
A player will notified in the Journal and on the Quest List on the right of his UI when an
Invasion like that will take place.

Activities
When it comes to gameplay, Rift has a lot to offer.
On the quick menu bar there is a button Activities. After clicking it you will see a list of
things that you can do

Activities
Chronicles
Chronicles are instances made for one or two players. It can easily be completed by a one
player if he has a decent gear.
Conquest
A PvP Match on a big scale. Players can pick from three different factions:

PvP Factions
From the left: Nightfall The Raven, Dominion The Ram oraz Oathsworm The Lion.
Th main goal is to take control of Control Points and Sourcestone Extractors that are spread
around the map. The match ends when one of the factions takes over 40% of the Control
Points, or when 5,000 players will die. When that happens, a 10 minute timer will start and
this will give players a last chance to grab a Control Point, after which they will earn their
rewards.

Instant Adventure
Instant Adventure is another way to spend your free time. Clicking that button wil
automatically put you into a queue in order to find you a group. Then it teleports you to a
region where you and your group will be faced with all sorts of quests. The amount of mobs
required to kill will be higher when theres more players joining the group. With each
completed quest you gain XP.
Looking for Group
Looking for Group is a built-in system thats meant to help players find their groups for
Dungeons
Dungeons are special locations across the world of Telara. Those locations are instanced,
and the look and interior of the Dungeons are different from one another. Some of them even
change during the progress of a group.
Theres a few different kinds of Dungeons and their difficulty levels, and they are:
Chronicles of Telara made for one or two players
Normal Dungeons made for 5-player groups. You can find them in every region. The
difficulty level of the dungeon is appropriate to the level of the region.
Expert Dungeons are more difficult versions of Normal Dungeons. Made for 5-player
groups and they are similar to their normal version but feature more difficult content and
additional bosses. Only players on Level 50 can enter those Dungeons
Raids designed for 10 and 20-player groups. Raids offer very challenging fights and it
will take a large group of well equipped players in order to progress
Expert Gear, that players gain in Expert Dungeons, Rifts or bought by Plague of
Achievement introduces a new type of stats:
Hit reduces the chance of physical abilities to be resisted (required for Rogues and
Warriors)
Focus reduces the chance of magical spells to be resisted (required for Mages and
Clerics)
Toughness reduces the amount of critical damage taken (required for any Tank)
Dungeons and Raids are split into different Tiers according to the amount of those stats. By
going to Dungeons that are above your Tier, it will result in more difficult and challenging
experience (attacks will be resisted, and Tanks will be getting critically hit by mobs)
Tiers Value (Stats)
Dungeon Tier 1 50
Dungeon Tier 2 100
Expert Rift 100
Raid Rift 150
Raid Tier 1 200
Raid Tier 2 300

Game Guide 23 / 29


Free To Play what changes have been made?
RIFT switched to a Free-To-Play system on the 12th of June. A lot of people have been
wondering what limitation have been set to players that have never played RIFT or those who
dont want to spend any money on the game.

Free-To-Play
To everyones surprise RIFT offers access to every part of its world, be it Dungeons, PvP or
even Raids. All of that with no restrictions. Developers also stated that they dont want to
make RIFT Pay-to-Win, and all the important items have to be gained in the world of Telara
without spending any real money.
Although there is something called a RIFT Store now and a Loyalty system. Loyalty is a
way of saying thanks to the players who have supported the game before it went FTP. So if
you have been subscribed before, then the time of your subscription will be turned into your
Loyalty points for which you gain all sorts of rewards (usually cosmetic items, Mounts or
Potions that boost your gained XP).

Loyalty Rewards
Its worth mentioning that subscriptions are still available. If you decide on getting a
subscription, then you will receive a Patron status and some benefits. For example:
+15% gained Currency (always on)
+10% Mount movement speed (always on)
10% discount on every item in the RIFT Store
Priority in the queue, meaning that you will be always first

Subscriptions can be bought in the RIFT Store which you can acces through an icon in the
qucik menu bar.
They have also added a currency called REX (RIFT Exchange). It can be bought with real
money in the RIFT Store, and then it can be traded with another player, put into an auction
or consumed in the game to get Credits (a currency that can be spent in the RIFT Store) or
Loyalty.

The developers claim that the Free-to-Play model will still be updating, so the aspects of it
may change as you play the game.
