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.
A google spreadsheet of every minion card in the game with information for how to get them!
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
Here you can find guides to all the puzzles, quests, rares, dungeons and many other activities in Rift!
There are guides for new players, as well as level 70’s looking to improve their gear.
You will also find the event guides super helpful.
The ‘Lists’ section is my favourite! Allowing you to see all of what can be collected in game, with hints about how to get them!
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.
A database of dimensions that deserve a visit.

The prancing turtle is a combat log parser – This is mostly used for comparing your DPS and HPS stats with other groups killing the same raid bosses.
Prancing Turtle changed ownership during October 2020, thank you to bctrainers for keeping this valuable resource running.
Simply enter the characters name and it will bring up a list of all shard firsts earned by that character!
The data for this comes straight from the game servers, unfortunately this data stopped being sent back in 2016, so its only recorded up to that point.
A list of the guilds/groups that cleared each of Rifts raid the very first time! Created by Doranbolt.
A quick look guide for where to find all the crafting materials.
