My First RIFT Epic!

Posted March 10th, 2011 by Miss Mediocre

Hello Readers,

As you know, I have been playing a lot of RIFT lately. Yesterday while I was questing with my boyfriend in Silverwood Forest, I noticed that the mountain beside where we were questing looked like it was probably the tallest in the zone, and I remembered reading that there was an achievement for climbing the highest mountain. I suggested trying to find our way to the top, but he just wanted to keep questing. Tonight while questing alone on my warrior I got to the same questing area. I decided I would give the mountain my best shot, and after only a few minutes I actually reached the peak! Directly in front of my character I saw “An Ancient Claim”, so of course I ran up and right clicked the mound. I received a container called “A Dusty Sack” and excitedly opened it to find my mountain climbing prize.

To my surprise and joy, out popped an epic Warrior breastplate! Then up came the Shard First announcement saying I was the first one on the Shard to find it! I was pretty happy, and after taking a few steps to my left, I got the “High Point” achievement I’d been looking for.

I headed out to the same spot on my Cleric, but unfortunately she didn’t get an epic. She did get the achievement and a green quality shield though! I am wondering if only the first person to climb the mountain on each Shard gets an epic, or if I was just really really lucky, lol.

If you want to go for the achievement and possibly an epic of your own, go to Palisade and head all the way up the hill at 6090,2675. Then skirt around the hut and head down the path to your right until you get to 6258,2468. Now start climbing! It takes a few minutes to climb and jump your way to the top, but just keep heading toward 6326,2344 and eventually you’ll make it to the Ancient Claim! Best of luck, and be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you get and if you’re the first are your Shard to do so!

I haven’t decided if I should keep and use the Epic Armor, or try to sell it, but here’s a screenshot of what it looks like.

Thanks for Reading!

    So how do epics work in rift? do the stats improve with your level as with Heirloom items? Do you have to be a certain level to use them? are they B.O.E. or B.O.P or both? and what kind of stats do they have? I have never even heard of Rift before so kind of interested about it.

    Airheart : Epics in RIFT work the same as epics in WoW. They have stats that are better than rares and blues and have a minimum level to use, in my case the epic chest I found required level 20. They don’t level up with you like Heirlooms, which is why I am considering selling it and not using it myself. Some are BoP, but the one I found was a BoE. Basically it is exactly the same as in WoW! :)

    cool how do you like it so far? What is the level cap on it?
    I tried to look at that on there website but could not find that info.

    Airheart : I am LOVING it, lol. The level cap is 50, but I’ve only just reached level 20 and have been playing that character for about 19 hours. With all the Rifts to close and invasions to fight off, it’s easy and fun to get distracted from leveling and go off and join the battle!
