endless eclipse

Patch 2.2 hit the servers this week, and it seems like a good milestone to gauge the player response to raid zone Endless Eclipse, which debuted in patch 2.1. How has the raiding community fared against the epic Regulos encounter?

Trion’s well on their way to continuing their goal of frequent content dates even after the recent launch of Storm Legion. RIFT Patch 2.1, also known as Endless Eclipse, will be released on live servers on December 12th:

Messengers race from Morban with grave news: Regulos readies an apocalyptic return to Telara. Agents of the Endless Court have collected his shattered essence, selected a host, and prepared a portal to the Plane of Death. The Devourer of Worlds is coming, and unlike Crucia, who offered salvation for submission, he wants only to annihilate the Ascended, their world, and all that lies beyond.

Endless Eclipse will feature Storm Legion’s second 20-man raid, Endless Eclipse, which Rift Junkies got a chance to preview during the expansion’s beta. The patch will also bring a little cheer to our faction capitols with this year’s updated Fae Yule holiday event. Level 60 players will also be able to experience iconic Storm Legion lore (hi, Crucia!) in the new Chronicle, A Hero Rises.

For more information, please see Trion’s official release announcement and RIFT 2.1′s information page.

It was Storm Legion’s second beta test last weekend, and RiftJunkies was there to get the inside scoop! We joined Community Manager James Nichols, better known to us as Elrar, for a tour of some of the new zones, raids, dungeons, and Dimensions.

Regulos is one creepy dude. We already kind of knew that, of course: players meet him for the first time within their first few levels when he heralds the end of the world. But once you enter Chez Regulos inside the new Endless Eclipse raid you quickly realize you’re dealing with the dragon god of Death on a whole different scale.

Trion’s livestreams from the PAX convention floor every day over the holiday weekend presented a deluge of information for viewers and attendees, and amongst the many things shown was a first look at Endless Eclipse, one of the new raids in Storm Legion. The final boss of this gigantic new zone? “One of the two dragons that are left,” said Russ Brown, VP of Development for RIFT, while giving the internet a tour of the raid for Trion’s TwitchTV page.

A dragon, eh? Well if Crucia is on the Storm Legion cover that probably leaves… yep, that’s right, it’s time to face down Regulos, previously known as the big baddie from vanilla RIFT. In fact, at one point near the end of the tour a zone name popped up on the screen: “Regulos Raid Death Chamber”. Let’s just hope it’s his death and not ours, right?

This weekend at PAX Prime 2012, Trion Worlds put on quite a show with all of the goodies they had to offer. The company showcased RIFT a great deal, naturally, diving into areas of Storm Legion that we haven’t seen before. We were also shown some of the new Bard skills in action. On top of all that, we also found out some new details about the expansion! It was a good weekend, and thanks to Trion’s TwitchTV page, it’s possible to view the footage at any time.

There’s a lot of footage to cover, however, thanks to three days of live streams. That’s why we’re here to offer up some of the best highlights of the three-day event, show off some screenshots, videos, and all the juicy details that were new information reveals. As a warning, all of the footage below was originally captured from Trion’s live streams, so graphical/sound quality may not be the best. Let’s take a look, shall we?
