The current RIFT world event will remain in Phase 1 until April 16, after Trion Worlds spent the better part of the weekend fixing technical glitches found in the later Phases.
The River of Souls world event is composed of three phases, and Phase 2 was supposed to begin yesterday, April 9, however, when the new content was rolled out across the European servers it encountered problems that forced the company to delay the launch on both sides of the Atlantic.
The bugs seem to have been fixed already according to Assistant Community Manager James Nichols, but Trion Worlds has decided to reschedule the Phase 2 launch to next Saturday, April 16. Developers apologized for the delayed progression and promised to make the week-long wait more bearable by increasing rift invasion drops and trade-in rewards.
Players will receive more Otherworldly Sourcestones from clearing Death rifts and invasions, and will be able to exchange said currency for more item rewards at the World Event merchant.
