Crafting Requiring Runeguard Faction

It has recently come to our attention that several crafting quests that required Runeguard faction (Friendly), are no longer requiring this as a minimum.  Specifically, we first noticed this on our Cinerium recipe, but looked back at some of our stored crafting recipes (Bronze in particular) and found that the requirement has vanished.  At this time, we are unsure of whether this was intentional or not, but the Guardians are all praying to the Vigil that the requirement does not return…. Defiants are researching the issue and deliberating, or whatever Defiants do.

We here at Lordrcane.com will update this information if it changes, but let us rejoice for the moment and enjoy it!

This has been a public service announcement about Crafting in Rift.  We now return you to your regularly scheduled carnage and mayhem.  Again, at this time, the Runeguard Faction requirements for many if not all crafting recipes has been removed, and we hope it does not return.

Rift Harvesting Minimums

Rift Harvesting Minimums

Greeting Telarans!  From our explorations and crafting exploits we bring you the skills needed to harvest these materials, and a few locations to find them.  As with most of our information, it is decidedly biased toward Guardians, but as much information as we have for our Defiant opponents has also been included.

The Dice Are Trying to Kill Me The Dice Are Trying to Kill Me

Table-top gamers tend to be a superstitious bunch. Maybe it goes hand in hand with the in-game proof that praying to the god of your choice can make your arrow fly more accurately. Or maybe it’s the result of a chemical compound produced in the gourmet gestalt of Cheetos and Mountain Dew. Whatever it is, we definitely have our rituals and eccentricities. One of the ThinkGeek Monkeys was in a group once in which one of the players would begin rolling before the game started, declaring he was “getting all the bad rolls out.” Another would chide him because he was “wasting all his good rolls.” But we all feel there’s something more to the dice than just random chance. When the dice control life and death, they become imbued with powers beyond stochastic phenomena. We’ve all had The Good Dice and The Bad Dice. This shirt memorializes that horrific night everyone has had when your dice were out to get you. You’ll roll a critical failure, or worse, a nearly critical failure, manage to hit, and then do so little damage you actually *heal* the enemy, because laughter has healing properties and the enemy can’t stop laughing at your feeble attempts. And then, when the enemy’s turn comes around, it involves a save-or-suffer-horrible-consequences effect, and you fail your saving throw. Because that’s just how we roll. Sometimes. Unfortunately. “The Dice Are Trying to Kill Me” printed in black on a 100% cotton, charcoal gray t-shirt with seven polyhedral dice with really bad rolls scattered around the text.
