If you haven’t gotten the message lately, Trion Worlds is pushing very hard to encourage RIFT players to subscribe up with patron status. The studio buffed patron membership at the expense of free-to-play offerings and came out with patron-exclusive quests not too long ago.
Now it’s added something called the affinity system. Basically, this is a new set of rewards only for those who have ponied up for patron status in RIFT. By logging in and playing for a few hours, players can accumulate up to eight affinity points a day to spend in a new section of the game store. There are rewards like mounts and dimension keys available for those who save up enough points through this system.
You can take in the entire explanation for this system after the jump.
