Autumn Harvest will run from October 18th to November 8th – official announcement here
*This has now been extended one week to November 15th*
The costume competition for the best Halloween costume has now finished! . You can find information about the winners here.
In game, things have become very pumpkiny! NPCs all around the main cities and throughout the open world have had their head removed and replaced with pumpkins! Go enjoy the silliness! (See the bottom of this page for some examples!)
Autumn Harvest Realm of the Fae instance has been removed.. The questgivers can now be found in Meridian/Sanctum.
The Autumn Harvest world event in rift is a celebration of the Autumn Season with a Halloween twist.
As with all world events, I strongly suggest running all the weekly quests on your alts to get a good stock of currency to buy all the things.
The weekly quest during Autumn Harvest is a very simple one, just do 20 Instant Adventures in Gloamwood!
There are daily quests to do to increase your reserves of Ambersap.
Killing anything Planar related will also earn you Ambersap which you can use to buy pretty things.
You can find many beautiful items in the rift store to buy with all the currency you earn.
And of course there are precious cheevo points to be earned too!
Guide to Earning Currency
The currencies for autumn harvest are ‘autumn harvest signets’ and ‘autumn harvest ambersap’
These currencies are earned by doing a variety of daily and weekly quests.
You can find the guides to these quests here.
You will be able to earn 7 signets every week by doing the weekly instant adventure quest (a total of 21 during the whole event) along with loads of ambersap from the various other quests and from killing planar mobs in open world. Your usual token boosts will also boost your ambersap gain, patron, vials, treasure map etc. Token boosts do not work on signets.
The weekly quests resets every Thursday at 15:30PM server time. If you miss a week, you will unable to collect the missed quest, so try to get it done every week!
Signets can also be earned from the special Autumn Harvest 4 hour minion quests, these are a random and very rare drop and should not be entirely relied upon for the farm! You do not need to buy any of the event minions to make these adventures start popping, although the minion card ‘Gambahl’ can be used to help make the adventures pop (this card is rewarded as part of the minion adventure chain that will start when you buy minion card Valzor). you will also very rarely receive the current lock box from these minion adventures.
I highly recommend you do the weekly on as many alts as possible and as many of the dailies as you feel up to!.. This will allow you to buy all the things you want/need from the shop. A lot of the shop items are either region wide unlocks (in the case of costume items) or are bound to account so you can buy from alts and send to your main.
Autumn harvest Ambersap is tradeable between your characters on the same shard. This means you can use your main char to farm Ambersap and then send the required amount to your alts for shopping purposes.
Go to the vendor ‘Aleatoria Sendang’ in Tempest Bay at /setwaypoint 12975 11460
Here you can swap your Autumn Harvest Ambersap for tradeable token boxes that you then post to your alts for them to open.
