Join other Ascended and kill a few monsters for some special loot in this upcoming two-week event.
Rift will be spawning a ton of new monsters from the planes of Telara beginning next week in a special event designed to get players working together to banish the invaders and bring peace and harmony back to the realm.
OK, that was corny, but technically accurate. Entitled Mayhem in Mathosia, the event will begin August 21 and end on September 4. The massive invasions will take place in the mid-level zones of Scarlet Gorge, Moonshade Highlands and Scarwood Reach and offer special loot for players that participate. Some of the special goodies include a sapphire Ki Rin mount, Defiant and Guardian crest capes, and some cool hats.
I always enjoyed Rift, but stopped playing before the game went free-to-play and before the Storm Legion expansion arrived. The planar invasions always made the zones feel different, especially after a quest hub was destroyed and you had to kill all the invaders and wait for the inhabitants to respawn before you could turn in a quest or buy items.
Not much else is know about this event, so you may just want to show up in some of the mentioned zones and try to get some loot.
