Typical rift within a landscape.

Rifts are one-way portals between Elyos and Asmodian zones.

Rifting mechanics have been changed multiple times. As of 4.0 rifts spawn based on fixed schedule, last for 1 hour and have no level limits.

Each rift has fixed entrance location, but 2-3 possible spawn locations for exits.

Rifts do not spawn on the Fast-Track Server.

Quests[]

Daily defense quests[]

Daily quests for killing enemy intruders are available whenever you enter a zone with open incoming rifts.

  • Kills only count while the rifts are open.
  • Kills don't count in alliance.
  • Pink players (10 levels lower than you) do count.

As a reward you get Ancient Crown Bundle and Elysea Defense Medal Bundle (Asmodae Defense Medal Bundle). Crown Bundle drops random crown, while Medal Bundle has level-dependent drops:

Spy quests[]

Certain quests tagged as [Spy] require infiltration into enemy territory through rifts.

Guards[]

While rifts are open, NPC guards may randomly spawn at certain locations. Guards with "Elite" in their name drop either a crown or <Mithril Medal>. Non-elite guards drop <Major Ancient Crown>, <Mithril Medal>, <Greater Divine Life Serum> or <Greater Divine Mana Serum>. Guards despawn if their designated rift despawns.

Dimensional vortex[]

3.5 update introduced dimensional vortexes — limited version of rifts to Theobomos and Brusthonin.

Curse[]

Killing enemy on their territory gives character curse points. Those aren't shown anywhere, but after getting certain amount of points player receives a Curse debuff, which significantly reduces character speed, stats, shows his location with a skull on the map for every enemy player and prevents further usage of rifts until the curse is gone. Killing low level players gives you more curse points. Debuff has no effect in disputed and home zones. Staying online in those zones is the only way to reduce your curse points and get rid of the debuff.

Schedule[]

While authors of those pages try to maintain up-to-date schedule, there may be some mistakes due to silent changes and incorrect patchnotes provided by NCSoft.

Properties[]

Rift A from Heiron, as well as rifts A and G from Beluslan have 2 possible exit locations. All the other rifts have 3 exit locations.

Each rift can be used limited number of times.
