Unstable Artifacts

Artifact Collecting

Finding super shiny sparkles as you run around the zones in Rift is a great way to spend some time in game!
Collect Artifacts to complete artifact sets, which can reward fluff items such as pets, mounts, dimension items, wardrobe, minions etc. Many artifact sets will also give credit towards cheevos, there are A LOT of points linked to artifact collecting.

Artifact Rewards Vendor

In Meridian, Sanctum and Tempest bay you will find the ‘Artifact Collector’ NPC.
Sanctum – /setwaypoint 7468 3004 – On the middle floor of the Sanctum tower
Meridian – /setwaypoint 6080 5137 – In the large Plaza area in the semi-circle of NPCs
Tempest Bay – /setwaypoint 12974 11524 – Near the Plaza Portal
This is where you will be handing in completed artifact sets to collect the rewards. Most sets will give you a treasure chest with a vial/scroll and a little plat/gold inside, some will have additional items such as pets, wardrobe, minions etc.

Each artifact set will also give you special artifact currencies, either Lucky Coins (in your currency tab) or Planar Nuts (in your bags). These currencies can be used to buy many special items.
It is best to use the Tempest Bay NPC as it has the complete collection of items available.

Misc

Ascended Power: Quantum Sight / Omen Sight

A re-usable ability that allows you to see Twisted Artifacts on the ground. Quantum Sight for Defiants and Omen Sight for Guardians.

Planar Pellets

Fuel for the Opie mount. There is absolutely no need to spend credits on these. Do not buy this item (explained below).

Consumable

Various Artifact Tracking Vials

If you want to spend money on artifact hunting then you will be so much better off just paying for a patron sub and using patrons artifact tracking, this ability will allow you to see ALL the above artifact types on the map at the same time. You will get one patrons vial per character per day, making it endlessly cheaper than buying these terrible overpriced vials.
You can buy these vials for plat in game from a vendor in Callweddi, though at 600 to 1250 plat each they are super expensive.

Bag / Sack / Chest of Planar Pellets

Fuel for the Opie mount. There is absolutely no need to spend credits on these.
You will need 750 pellets each for your planar crafted helm and ranged weapon, this is 50 artifact sets completed, which is super easy to do (Concentrate on Mathosia zones and fill in incomplete sets at the auction house).
You may also wish to use Opie to complete the Vostigar Peaks Puzzle. Though you may find the Jetpack mount to be better and the fuel/currency for Jetpack easier to farm.
