RIFT launches a sentient 10-man raid; here’s the trailer

    
17
Live in RIFT’s patch today is a brand-new 10-man raid called The Comet of Ahnket. A lore piece last week revealed that the eponymous comet led scholars to discover a sentient tower that is the location of the raid — “not only sentient, but fiercely self-aware and possessing astonishing magical power.” The tower says that she’s entrapped two warring enemies within her walls, and it’s your job to enter her and destroy them both.

Welp, never seen that done before. The trailer and screenies are below.

Radfist Midgetsnowman Zariarn well, good to know then. I mean, I know you guys said it had an easy mode, but given rift’s definition of easy I wasnyt sure if it was actually puggable >_>

Somewhere, deep in Trion HQ, there is still some kind of glimmer of the RIft-that-was.

Sigh.

Been seeing the server achievements popping for this all evening, so someone out there is having fun! Their environmental art is really good here.

It should be known that this also introduces a new difficulty mode – “Universal Introduction Mode” – an easy mode version of the raid that maxxes out your Hit rating to the max, and introduces a buff that gives you +2% HP/Damage/Healing every 30 seconds of combat you engage in. 
This mode is meant for casual PuGs, and awards lower tier raid gear, so anyone can effectively run this raid.  It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
