Ultimate Guide to Carnival of the Ascended – 2013

This year’s Carnival of the Ascended is almost two weeks in but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy everything that’s being offered.

So in order to get you prepared for the event, I’ve gone ahead and put together this comprehensive guide. It features all quests currently available (their rewards) as well as all of the new and awesome prizes that you can purchase.

So what are you waiting for?!…

Carnival of the Ascended Dimension Float Previews

Last year when Carnival of the Ascended was first introduced, the parade floats were probably the cutest things designed in Rift. I loved the attention to details (the stitching!) and the music that played when you were near them. They had done such a great job with them that it was disappointing to see them go and have to wait another year to see them again. Except… not anymore. This year’s Carnival of the Ascended comes after Storm Legion’s launch which brought us the ever-so-amazing Dimensions!…

New “Carnival Candy” Lootables on Rift Mobile

The RIFT Mobile app was updated yesterday to include a Carnival of the Ascended game into the Lootables mix! Carnival Candy, available for a limited time, gives you 5 chances per scratch off to win. Some of the prizes are Glass Beads, Prize Tickets, and various other old world event items (including items from 1.1-1.5 that were removed from the World Event vendor.)

All you need to win is to be lucky enough for your scratch to have one (or five!) Birthday Cakes and you’ll win the prize for that column. Easy enough, right?

So get to scratching.. you might be lucky and win something that isn’t Glass Beads :P.

Carnival of the Ascended Starting Phase Dates

This year is the second annual Carnival of the Ascended World Event which means lovable balloons companions, pinatas, awesome warddrobe masks and more. If you didn’t have a chance to participate last year, there were multiple phases to the event. The first week of the event is sort of a pre-celebration. The lovely COTA NPCs are lingering around Sanctum, Meridian and Tempest Bay getting their booths setup, the floats prepared, and mead stockpiled. This year the event has been somewhat simplified. There will only be two phases to the event unlike last year’s 6 phases (although the sixth one was an introduction to the War of the Wanton Maw and Infernal Dawn.)…

2.2 – Carnival of the Ascended!

Get ready because 2.2 — Carnival of the Ascended is almost here! Rift‘s website was updated yesterday to include the new landing page for 2.2’s Carnival of the Ascended. This means that now we’re only a week (or two) away from one of the best World Events in Rift as well as 2.2 itself.

One of the big additions for 2.2, at least in my eyes, is going to be the introduction of Tier 3 Planar Attunement and Tier 2 PVP Planar Attunment. It’s been a year and a half since Planar Attunement was released back in 1.5’s Ashes of History release on 9/28/2011. You can read a Tier 3 PA in my post Tier 3 Planar Attunement On the PTS Again if you haven’t checked out what you’ll unlock from grinding.…
