" feature, up to 50% on some sets!
The artifact Draw special will start with the patch on Wednesday, May 24<sup>th</sup> and end with the patch on Wednesday, May 31st!
To make your weekend extra shiny, we will also reduce the price of all Artifact Tracking Vials
by 25% from May 26 through 29th - happy hunting! NEW ARTIFACT PINATAS!
We know you all loved last year's Summerfest Artifact Pinatas, so DeadSimon has created an all new Artifact Pinata for this weekend! It comes with its own brand new collections and rewards! Artifact Pinatas will appear in the world in one of 15 possible locations per zone - every zone in Telara has them, and up to 5 can be up at once! There is one exception - Tyrant Throne is a small area, so it only has up to 3 available at a time.
These new artifact pinatas will be available from 12:01 AM PDT Friday, May 26th, through to 11:59 PM PDT on Monday, May 29th, 2017. Want a sneak peek? Of course you do!
One of the new collections is "The Adventures of Kiki Kookoo," which are tales of an intrepid, swashbuckling sleuth. Read by Fae children across all of Telara, the adventures of Kiki Kookoo are one of the most popular series of books ever written in Telara. Collect all of her books, including, "Kiki Kookoo and the Haunted Fairground."
Another set is "Violet and Pimpernel. " Almost certainly the most elusive of the Fae, Violet and Pimpernel are little more than the product of a child’s imagination.
For those seeking something a little more seriously lore oriented, we offer, "Deep Factions of the Planes." The Cosmos is not Telara-centric, as any true Mystic can tell you. There are Factions whose plots never involve our world... unless the Ascended venture too far. What about the rewards?
You can earn special abilities that give you "Artifact Eyes
," one for each color type, matching the corresponding sets. For instance, you'd earn Poison Artifact Eyes for completing the poison set. The Meta set grants you Rainbow Artifact Eyes
that change color every 5 seconds! What do they look like? Stick a shiny in your eye and look in the mirror!
These new artifact pinatas will be available from 12:01 AM PDT Friday, May 26th, through to 11:59 PM PDT on Monday, May 29th, 2017.Oh, ONE more thing...
There is another exclusive Artifact Pinata that can ONLY be spawned by DeadSimon himself. He may or may not have used the term "pooped by Dead Simon." This has yet to be confirmed by independent sources.
Join us for the RIFT Livestream
on Friday, May 26th, 2017 and learn all you ever wanted to know about this new artifact set. Be wary though, because when riled up, DeadSimon can become quite dangerous. Yeah, we think that got everyone's attention! We'll start on the EU server cluster, then move to NA. This will not be the last you see of the DeadSimon artifact set, but it will be the world premiere! Do NOT miss it!
This Pinata has its own 7 sets of Artifacts and rewards that include Artifact Beguiled Companion Pets
... and you guessed it, they have color-changing artifacts for eyes. These include a Guffin, DeadSimon, an owl and others.
