glowing ruby ki run title

Remember the Glowing Ruby Ki Rin? How about the Shadow Hellbug or the Glowing Emerald Ki Rin? If you happened to be online when these limited time only items were available in the RIFT Store, you may have picked them up or knew someone who did. If you happened to not be online for those PST-based four hours, you were out of luck (unless you bought them from someone). Trion kind of went bananas for a couple weeks with the limited time only sales. Those sales seem to have quieted down for the moment, but despite Trion’s best intentions of allowing players to access unique, special goodies, there was one little thing the team forgot about– time zones.

While the RIFT Store is still one of the better F2P in-game cash shops around, there are some definite issues with RIFT’s cash store and with limited time sales such as these. Interested in digging a little deeper and reading some thoughts on these limited time sales and other issues regarding the the RIFT Store? Head on over to Junkies Nation and take a peek at our newest opinion column: The Cash Shop Critic. This entry’s all about the limited time RIFT sales.

autumn-harvest-round-2-items-headerRJ

Get your Halloween pails ready, RIFTers. Autumn Harvest is beginning today, and you know what that means– artifacts galore, costumes galore, and plenty of booze, drunken Fae, and spooky dimensions to visit. Earlier this week, we previewed a whole bunch of the new items, costumes, consumables, dimension items, and achievements being added in this year’s Autumn Harvest. Yesterday, all of that hit live shards a day early along with even more new goodies. Three new costumes became available on the RIFT Store along with two new random grab bag/supply crates that have a chance of containing one very cool mount and a new set of Halloween-themed masks and weapons. The masks also have an accompanying achievement.

Care for a preview? Check out Round 2 of our Autumn Harvest preview on Junkies Nation.

Also be sure to stay tuned for our updated Autumn Harvest guide as this year’s event unravels later in the day. If you didn’t take part in last year’s Autumn Harvest, you can take a look at our guide from last year to get an idea of how parts of the event may work.

S01E22 title screen

This week we sit down with Mark Jacobs and discuss his Kickstarter project: Camelot Unchained. Our conversation ranges from what to expect in the game to going over his founding principles and getting to the bottom of what he wants his game to become. Camelot Unchained looks to bring old school RVR/PVP ideals to a modern game. While not shooting for a AAA game created to support millions of players; Mark Jacobs hopes to fashion a game for RVR players only. Not sacrificing design to make everyone happy, Camelot Unchained hopes to bring RVR to its niche market.

Do you enjoy writing RIFT guides for your fellow guildmates or on the official forums? Are you always maximizing your list of macros and coming up with new, awesome ideas for DPS rotations? If so, we want to hear from you! Rift Junkies is looking to add a few more enthusiastic, talented volunteer writers to our team. This time around we’re looking for calling experts specifically. If you know your calling like the back of your own hand and constantly hope for more role slots (we can never have enough!), you might be the Ascended we’re looking for.

All that we ask is that you’re a true fan of the game and can show us that you know a thing or two about writing. You’re more than welcome to set your own schedule and write whenever your feel inspired. If you do an awesome, consistent job, there may even be opportunities for this to become a paid position.

If you have any questions or would like to apply to become a writer for Junkies Nation and RIFT Junkies, please feel free to contact Jason Dodge at dreagon@rerollz.net or Laura Hardgrave at laurah@rerollz.com. Make sure to have a writing sample handy when you contact us!

JN-Logo-not-round

Hey everyone, many of you might be familiar with the full Junkies Nation network where we attempt to create fansites from every MMOG out there. As our network grows, so do my responsibilities. Because of this we have begun our very own Affiliate Operator program.

To break it down simply, Junkies Nation is looking for people who have the desire to run, operate and create content for Defiance Junkies. This means Defiance Junkies is your site to run as you see fit under our guidelines. In turn you get web development, hosting, developer access (Hi Lance!), promotional support that includes cross-platform with our sites as well as outside sources of promotion.

As the Senior Editor of Junkies Nation, I can’t be across our network every day, all the time and we’re looking for a bright, creative and hard working person to run Defiance Junkies for us. In return for all your hardwork, you then begin to share in the site’s profits earning up to 60% of the revenue generated on the site.

If you are interested in finding out more about this program, along with the details, please contact me at Draegan@Rerollz.com.

Thanks everyone!

Are you an avid fan and theorycrafter in the RIFT community? Do your fellow guildmates come to you for help with macros and their latest, goofy specs? Do you answer the question, “Do you even RIFT, bro?” with a wholehearted, chest-thumping “YES!”? Are you a fountain of knowledge when it comes to PvP or raid strats? Do you want to share that knowledge and be a part of the largest RIFT fansite on the Internet?

You might just be in luck. Rift Junkies is looking to add a few more enthusiastic, talented volunteer writers to our team. All that we ask is that you’re a true fan of the game and can show us that you know a thing or two about writing. Oh, yeah, and if you love to take in-game videos, that’s an even bigger plus! You’re more than welcome to set your own schedule and write whenever your feel inspired. We especially need a couple of raid and calling experts, but we’re interested in hearing about your ideas first and foremost. If you do an awesome, consistent job, there may even be opportunities for this to become a paid position. The Junkies Nation network is currently looking to expand. You might just be who we’re looking for!

If you have any questions or would like to apply to become a writer for Junkies Nation and RIFT Junkies, please feel free to contact Jason Dodge at dreagon@rerollz.net or Laura Hardgrave at laurah@rerollz.com. Make sure to have a writing sample handy when you contact us!

You may of noticed a new URL of this website up in the navigation bar! We’ve transitioned to a new network where all of our fansites are on the same domain. This doesn’t change anything for you externally but helps those of us who bring you new content organize things better. This is only the beginning and we plan on bring you, the fans, some exciting new things that will include a brand new website called JunkiesNation.com which will cover everything from MMORPGs and the lifestyle that comes with them (yes, that means Cheetos, Mountain Dew and comic books).

For now sit tight and keep enjoying the daily content you get from our writers. For us, we’ll get back to work. If you see any problems or issues, please send all feedback to Ryan Raplee at Teljair@Rerollz.com.

Cheers everyone!
