Mist shrouds your vision, leaving you to fend for yourself as you attempt to dock at the harbor, the curious scent of metal in the air.

Saddle up, as RIFT 3.1 Storm at Sea is nearly ashore. On the 28th of January, players will take on the threats that plague Tyrant’s Throne, the new battlefield sketched out for chaos.

A new Raid Rift, “The Darkest Magic”, a 20-Player Raid in the form of Tyrant’s Forge, and akvan within the open seas… all are new enemies and challenges, which if players conquer, awaits the face of the storm herself: Crucia.
