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.

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 »

Finally, you get six new units to add to the six existing one.

We are introducing these units at the elite (red) level, so they come with all five skills.

You can recruit them immediately, without a level requirement.

Also, to make that first hire easier, we'll be introducing these units at a special, limited-time only price.

So hurry up and recruit them while they are 50% off! Read more »

Assassins: Online RPG gameSimilar to most strategy games, the effectiveness of a Riftforge commander is measured by how effectively starting resources are converted to special resources.

The starting resource for each archetype bears a different name but it works out similarly to mana in other RPGs. It starts full and is depleted when skills are used. Read more »

Flying Eighty-Eights: Riftforge online
The Flying Eighty-Eights,
Elite Ranger Detachment

The first couple of ballistae have been captured, dismantled, and hauled all the way from a forward Caldarian outpost.

Once Ranger command got word of it, they immediately requisitioned them to include a ballista-training course in the Rangers’ curriculum at Mistral Isle.

Taking full advantage of the increased range and armor penetration of the ballistae, the first operational battalion distinguished itself again and again. They earned their nickname during the defensive operations in grid 88, Riftforge’s home turf. Read more »
