There are many many beautiful websites and resources out there to help you enjoy your time on RIFT.
This is a list of some of them!
YARET stands for ‘Yet Another Rift Event Tracker’
This is a very VERY useful tool for RIFT players, use it to see exactly which zone events are running, which shard they are on and how long they have been running for. The page refreshes every minute to keep you up to date (be aware it may not auto-refresh on tablets/mobile phones)
This site is built and maintained by Forbiddenlake, who works very hard to keep it running smoothly and up to date!
The Ghar Station is a blog run by Clowd, Imathrowback, Hapatitis and Kira.
They regularly post datamining articles about upcoming content, they also have some leveling and gearing guides as well as an awesome guide about planar fragments
They also run a very well managed discord channel, see the ghar station website for details
Asking questions about RIFT in google will likely point you in the direction of Magelo. This is likely the largest game database for RIFT.
There are also a number of other tools on the site, including a soul tree calculator which most people will use/link to when sharing specs.
TelaraDb offers a fresh perspective on Rift’s item data, including a 3D item preview for weapons and armor!
Currently the site supports searching and viewing of in-game items. You can search by name, broad item categories, more specific tags, as well as required level and iLevel. Once you look at an item, you can view item stat details, appearances associated to items, and any stat boosting affixes (Brutal, Clever, of Accursed Dreamers, etc). As mentioned previously, you can also see full 3D previews for weapons and armor.
If you enjoy building dimensions then this is the site for you!
They have a massive database of all dimension items available in RIFT along with tools to help you build.
Even if you dont enjoy building your own dimension, visiting other peoples dimensions is loads of fun – it can often be an eye-opening, jaw dropping experience as you realise the talent and commitment that these players have to create these amazing works of art in the game.
The official Trion Worlds livestream channel on Twitch.
There is a RIFT livestream ‘most’ Fridays, always great to watch and often there are giveaways at the end of the stream to win cool stuff!
When the DEVS dont stream there are often hosted streams done by Trion Creators.
A google spreadsheet of every minion card in the game with information for how to get them! – (245 Cards)
Also contains information about the hidden minion cards (pick the correct tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet)
The original document from RiftGrate can still be found here.. http://tinyurl.com/miniondatabase – This one only shows 199 cards and is not updated anymore
The skins on farm guild was built back in 2015 shortly after the rift wardrobe system was updated and improved and became the best wardrobe system ever!
The guild was built just for the sharing of skins! Usually the rarest weapon skins that are difficult to acquire in game. The skins are kept in the guild bank and players who join can place them in their bags to unlock the skin and then place them back in the guild bank so the next person can use it. Most people join with a low level alt built specifically for this purpose.
Farming skins for the bank is time consuming business so there is a charge to join the guild that helps keep everything running. You can contact ‘Seshatar’ on the heroes of telara discord for more information.
The skins on farm guild is on the EU shard gelidra, it will only unlock skins in the EU cluster!
