Battle Pass Information

What is a battle pass?

Wiki says.. “A battle pass is a type of video game monetization that provides additional content for a game usually through a tiered system, rewarding the player with in-game items by playing the game and completing specific challenges.”

In Rift, the battle pass system is a series of additional quests that will award you with Battle Pass Experience (BPXP). There are 30 levels of BPXP to make your way through, each level requiring 20k BPXP to complete. Each level you pass will have rewards attached to it.
Rifts Battle Pass has a reward tier for free to play players, extra rewards for those players that have bought the Battle Pass and extra rewards for those players who have bought the Battle Pass and have a patron sub. (Just a patron sub alone is not enough to claim these extra rewards, you need to buy the Battle Pass)

Free Rewards – Top Row – These rewards are available for everyone. (Yes even the free to players!)

Battle Pass Bought – Left Side – These rewards are only available to players who have bought the battle pass.
Buying Battle Pass will also grant you an extra 25% XP for each completed quest from the time of purchase.

Patron Bonus – Right Side – These rewards are only available to players who have bought the battle pass and have an active Patron Sub. Patron will be required to claim the rewards. You do not need to have an active sub for the entire Season, only when you want to claim the rewards.
Having an active sub will also grant you an extra 25% XP for each completed quest from the time of purchase. You do not need to have bought the Battle Pass to gain this extra XP. As a Patron you will also has 2 extra daily quests each day.

How much will it cost?

You can participate without spending any money at all, however you will only get the first tier of rewards and you will need to complete around 90% of the quests to be able to complete on time. Buying the Battle Pass will give you the first and second tier of rewards and 25% extra XP from each quest. Patrons that have bought the battle pass will get a few extra rewards, another 25% extra XP and will get 2 extra dailies per day!

Battle Pass – $9.99 / £7.49 / €9.99 – (Giftable with cash only not with credits)
This is the price for the entire Battle Pass Season, not a monthly/weekly cost.

If you manage to get all the way to level 30 then the price of the Battle Pass is very clearly a good deal! You will get a mount, dimension items, costumes, unique cosmetics, Credits and a large selection of other premium items. Even just a singular mount alone would normally cost more than the entire Battle Pass.. but of course, with the Battle Pass system, you will have to work for that mount!

Although you can buy the Battle Pass at ANY POINT during the season.. you should buy it as soon as possible to give yourself the extra XP straight away. This will make it much easier for you to complete the battle pass and earn all the rewards.
If you buy the Battle Pass mid-season you will be able to claim the rewards from the levels you have already completed, so you wont miss out on any of the rewards, but you will miss out on the extra XP you would have earned from buying the Battle Pass earlier.

Purchasing Levels

Found in the Limited Time Sale Section of the store, ‘Concentrated Expertise’ and ‘Greater Concentrated Expertise’ will add XP to your Battle Pass progress. Be aware, these DO NOT show up as an item in your bags. The XP is automatically credited straight away on purchase. The Xp is only credited on the region where you buy the cache, it is not shared between NA and EU.

Concentrated Expertise gives 20,000 Battlepass Experience. This is a full level.

Greater Concentrated Expertise gives 100,000 Battlepass Experience. This is 5 full levels.

Seasons?

A battle pass season will last a full 8 weeks (56 days).

Playing on Different Characters (Same Region)

BPXP is shared across all your characters on the same region, so you can use different alts to complete all the dailies/weeklies. Be careful which character you claim your rewards on, some of them are bind on pick up, though most are now bound to account.

Playing on Both Regions (NA/EU)

Buying the Battle Pass will activate your extra rewards on both regions (you only need to buy it once), however you will need to earn the XP separately on each region to work your way up and claim all the rewards (BPXP is not shared cross region).
Credit rewards can only be claimed once per account, it will credit on the first region you claim it on, when you reach the same level on the other region you will be able to hit the claim button but wont get the credits. (Hint: This is the intention)

Quest Information

When do the quests reset?

Daily quests will reset every day at 4am Server Time
Weekly quests will reset every week at 4am Server Time on a Wednesday.
All current quests, even those in progress will disappear and new quests will be given.
If you are logged in during daily/weekly reset you may need to relog to see your new quests.

How do I see my quests?

Open up the Battle Pass UI to see your daily and weekly quests.
You can track your quests in your quest stickies by clicking the little dot in the top right of the quest box.
The Quests are completely separate to your normal quest UI, you do not have to go an NPC to pick them up, they will just appear in your Battle Pass UI each day/week. Handing in dailies does not effect your normal daily quest hand in limit.

Can I change my quests?

You do have the option to shuffle quests that you do not want to do.
Hit the shuffle button on the quest UI to be given a new random quest.
You can shuffle one daily for free each day and one weekly for free each week.
If you want to shuffle more quests than this then you can do so using credits, each reroll gets progressively more expensive til the next reset.

You can clearly see in the UI if you still have free shuffles left that day/week.

BE AWARE: You will get a new RANDOM quest.. this includes the whole list of quests available, including the one you are shuffling, so there is a very small chance that you may get the same quest back after a shuffle!

How to hand in Quests

When you have completed a quest you will see the little ‘completed quest’ icon in your alert tray.
You can click this to open up the battle pass UI and claim your XP.

Your completed quest will now have a little loot bag.
Click this to collect your BPXP.

Do we all have the same quests?

Quests are distributed randomly. Different players will have different quests. This is intended to give players variety and to ensure that people are not all farming the same thing at the same time.
You can see more info about quest distribution on the Quests page.

XP and Progress Information

Will we have to complete every quest?

The simple answer is no.
If you want to get all the way to level 30 then you will need to earn 600,000 BPXP
This is an average of 10.7k per day or 75k per week over 56 days.
Weeklies give 10k each.
Dailies give between 1k and 3k.
Patrons will have 6 dailies to choose from, Non-Patrons get 4.
All Players have 3 weeklies.
You should always aim to do as many of the quests as you can each day/week.
But you do not have to do every single quest to get to level 30! 

XP boosts, such as those from Patron, Loyalty and Vials DO NOT increase your BPXP earned.

Expertise Caches

Each of the quests rewards an Expertise Cache, what is inside this cache will depend on the amount of XP you got from the quest and if you have bought the Battle Pass or have an active patron sub.

The Expertise Cache will award you..
You get 25% extra XP if you have bought the Battle Pass
You get 25% extra XP if you have an active Patron Sub
A total of 50% extra XP if you have bought the Battle Pass and have an active Patron Sub

You will also recieve a VERY small amount of Loyalty
– a base rate of 1 loyalty point
– 1 extra loyalty point if you have bought Battle Pass
– 1 extra loyalty point if you have an active Patron sub
These numbers are the most common reward, sometimes I seem to get a few more loyalty points (up to 21 total).

Concentrated Expertise Cache

Warning: You need to open the cache straight away or risk losing it. The cache will disappear if you are logged out for more than hour, even if you are on an alt. You can also only hold 5 caches at a time, if you already have 5 in your bags and try to claim another then the 6th will disappear!
