A new update has crawled out of the cracks for MMORPG Rift, harnessing a significant collection of new content and lore along with its emergence. 2.7, or “Binding of Blood” is officially live, and will be leaving a trail of raids, quests, destruction and Hellbugs on the path behind it for the next few days.

“Binding of Blood” brings four new souls, allowing the Warriors and Rogues the ability to heal, Mages the opportunity to tank-one out, and provides Clerics with a little more oomph in their ability to support. This allows for each player to sustain themselves more as an individual unit, and creates an opportunity for party’s and solo champions to explore the new update on a more level playing field.

Upgrades to the user interface such as Crafting, Wardobe, Quests and Achievement Tracking have also arrivcd upon 2.7’s implementation. A new collection of chapters and quests have been written into the lore of Binding of Blood, elaborating on how these new obtainable souls have come to exist, and where their destiny lies.

Many more features are to be seen in the upcoming days, including some more Tier 3 Raids, a week long “Unicorn Celebration”, and a return of the notorious Hellbugs. Summerfest is also in store, giving all those hard working heroes out there a moment to stop a smell the roses on a scavenger hunt or two.

“Binding of Blood” is worth a looksie for any Rift veteran– and any potential rookies looking to learn the ropes can find more info at the official website.

  1. It’s funny because this got about 4 people replying. Very popular game guise!

    10 people playing Rift might be a stretch, has the population dropped even further? Dead game is dead. Sad to see Trion having so many issues letting it go finally. They should really just focus on their latest failure.

        • Retardboy Anon…using commas or dots depends on the country youre from. In most European countries a comma would be just fine and since you know what he really meant youre just dumb.

          • 100.000 = 100.
            Don’t particularly care if some ass-backwards country thinks a period = comma.
            Not the same my friend, we’re on an English speaking site.

            Also lern2apostrophe. “youre” isn’t a word. Can’t quite understand what you’re saying.

            Nice try though kiddo. Better luck next time.

          • Actually it does not matter which country it is but 100000 is always 100.000,00, to make it much clearer you could always write 100000 or 100000,00, that would still be correct. That counts for US, UK, EU even Asia.

            And i sadly couldn’t Reply to the Anon but none needs Grammar Nazis.

          • Ninetenduh are you retarded? In the US, the number 100000 is presented as 100,000. We don’t use periods here to replace commas, we use it to denote decimal places. But even that doesn’t matter, because the correct way to denote 100,000 is 1×10^5.

        • Clever boy, you are not clever. 100.000 in greece is 100,000 on other countries.
          So it means its 1 hundred thousand players.
