Yesterday, Trion posted an official news update about mentoring: Mentoring 101: Play Everywhere! Most of the basic information isn’t new to players who have tested out the mentoring system on the PTS or have read our guide on mentoring, but there is some detailed information regarding the rewards granted through mentoring. It’s also worth a read if you’re catching up on all the details of patch 1.9.
Here is the entire section on rewards:
Besides a new way to enjoy all the content you might have missed while leveling you’ll earn rewards and XP your character can use!
- Quests, Rift Content, and Mobs all give you XP comparable (but slightly less) to what you would earn at your natural level. This means you’ll keep earning levels or Planar Attunement even when you’re mentoring!
- Zone Events reward Sourcetone equivalent to your natural level. (i.e. if you’re naturally Level 50, even if you’re Mentored down to level 10 you’ll still earn Inscribed Sourcestone from events.)
- Mentoring even gives an XP bonus when grouped with lower level players!
The rewards granted through low-level Instant Adventures also scale nicely, which means they’re worth doing while mentoring for the Sourcestone rewards. RIFT’s unique reward system makes mentoring an ideal fit for the game. Read more about mentoring in RIFT in a recent Rift Junkies editorial here.
