RIFT Patch 1.5 Release Date Revealed

Maybe not the exact date, but today Trion Worlds revealed that RIFT patch 1.5, Ashes of History, will be deployed to servers sometime next week. Ashes of History is the fifth major content update to RIFT since launching a little over 6 months ago and you can check our our patch 1.5 preview here, which was posted yesterday.

But incase you just want a quick run down, here are the major points.

  • Planar Attunement – Advance beyond level 50 with Planar Attunement. Every quest completed and planespawn slain brings you closer to your next planar upgrade.
  • Chronicles – Teams of two players (or one, if you’ve got the gear) can take on Rift Chronicles, exploring breathtaking dungeons — including Greenscale’s Blight, Hammerknell, and the Chronicles of Attunement—in fun, story-driven adventures!
  • New Warfront: Library of the Runemasters – PvP combat erupts in Hammerknell’s Library of the Runemasters. Race the enemy faction to control Dwarven secrets, and rise through the ranks in this pulse-pounding new Warfront.
  • Master Dungeon – Darkening Deeps now sports a Master Dungeon mode. Rebalanced for elite groups of Ascended, the Master Dungeon holds epic challenges and epic rewards.
  • Veteran Rewards – Subscribers earn rewards the longer they play Rift, including special gear, a personal vendor, and a portable mailbox.
  • AddOns Beta – Customize your play with new AddOns Beta, fan-created mods for your Rift user interface.
