Riftforge Online RPG Easterhino mount

Riftforge is pleased to announce the creation of the first super rare mount, imaginatively called the Super Rare Rhino by the Guardians (or colloquially known as the Easterhino).

The new mount’s special features include a vastly increased hearing range as well as the first fully operational camouflage suit, apart from the ones used by the elite assassins. The suit assumes the Easterhino is ridden anywhere pink or purple.

The only downside is that this new mount is still very temperamental, so additional training is required before one rides it to battle. To get a passing mark on the test, it needs to go a mile without breaking a single egg.

Remember to sign up below for early delivery of the first fully trained Easterhinos. Hopefuls estimate the Egg-Mile test will be passed within a year!

Note: Easterhinos first appeared on April 21, 2011 as a teaser unit to mark Easter. No actual Easterhino mounts exist yet but other special mounts in more subdued colors will be introduced soon.

New Sisterhood enemies

The operation versus Caldaria is picking up speed.

High House Sima has received much needed reinforcements from some of the other houses.

More importantly, the three Orders have also expressed their interest in Caldaria.

The Mercantile Guild in particular has sent envoys to the independent Entrussar villages in search of allies and merchandize.

Sisterhood stikes back

Both Rhalley and Syrran enemies place great emphasis on their female troopers. The Sisterhood are out there to prove no one outdoes them when it comes to cat fights.

Check out the new, beefed up version of the infamous Painkillers. Read more »

New enemies: Rhalley and Syrran

House Sima has done it again!

With the help of their patrons from House Oshiro, they've expanded the patrol grid, effectively doubling the number of patrol locations.

It is not like they had much of a choice. The Sima-led campaign invasion has been threatened on both flanks by new enemies.

The first reports about the new enemies came through on December 21. It's probably not a coincidence, since it's the Winter Solstice (and the shortest day of the year).

New enemies: Rhalley vs Syrran

At least for now, the new enemies doesn't appear to be coordinating attacks with the Caldarians. Read more »

As the Caldarian offensive picks up speed, High House Sima doubles the number of missions available to you!

Their patrons from House Oshiro will be doubling the patrols as well, in order to support the offensive.

So what's next? That's right - CAMPAIGNS!

In order to encourage Commanders to follow through with the more challenging missions, the top Houses will offer extra LOOT when a campaign is completed. Read more »

A strange twist of fate at Riftforge has paved the way for the most overpowered batch of units.

When you look at your new recruitment options, make sure you check out the Gutripper, Varangian, and Bloodhound. OK, enough spoilers!

We've reduced the prices on old units to match those of the new uber elites. In short, all units are now officially 50% cheaper than before.

Based on your feedback, we've also reduced the price of armors (dramatically from 54,000 to 12,000). So if you've delayed armor upgrades, now is a good time to catch up. Read more »

Six elite units are now available at Riftforge, for a total of 18 elite battalions.

The Mercantile Guild has generously allowed some of its elite Vigilantes to join you in battle.

Don't like Vigilantes? No worries, each archetype gets two new units: an elite core and a special trooper, so be sure to check them out.

To speed up playtesting, we are introducing the new units at a reduced price, so you can easily afford to recruit them. Remember that patrols now get you superior weapons in addition to gold, so making a lot of gold has never been easier. Read more »
