RIFT begins Ascend-a-Friend referral promotion


RIFT players, have you been trying to get your friends to come join you in Telara, but you just can't come up with the right incentive? Trion Worlds has you covered. Beginning tomorrow with the advent of patch 1.2, RIFT subscribers will be able to Ascend-a-Friend into the ranks of the Defiant or Guardians, providing the newly Ascended with a seven-day free trial as well as linking the two players' accounts together.

This account link comes with benefits for both the Ascender and the Ascendee. The former will gain in-game rewards -- an adorable Corgi-esque non-combat pet, a stylin' new hat, and a rather menacing flaming horse mount of doom -- for each recruited friend who decides to purchase RIFT. The latter will be granted an exclusive title, "The Chosen," and each player will be given the ability to teleport to the other's location once every 30 minutes.

If this sounds like just the thing you needed to get your friends to Telara without having to drag them forcibly, just log in to your Trion Worlds account and click "Ascend-a-Friend" on the left of the page to prepare to bolster your faction's forces with some brave new Ascended.
