Conquest: Steppes of Infinity – Testing this Friday October 18th
Come join Trion’s Devs and players on the PTS as they observe battle ensuing within the newly created Conquest map Steppes of Infinity this Friday, October 18th. Announced by Daglar on the RIFT Dev forums it will be happening at 2:30 PM PST and those that come out and participate will be granted the exlusive title “Savage Tester”. On top of that, if it weren’t enough, testing players will be receiving an unspecified amount of loyalty for their efforts as long as they are beyond the minimum loyalty threshold. The participants will also automatically be entered in a draw to win a choice out of a few premium exclusive mounts including a Ruby Ki-Rin or any Hellbug mount they want.
General Concept of Game
Players will have to capture charges in Fort Brevo and then gain points by using them on the extractors in Fort Antapo and visa versa. A secondary way in which players can gain points for their team is by upgrading random Foci, which spawn around the map, with your Planar ability.
