  • Is the Patron Status Worth It?

    It's no secret that RIFT has a generous business model. The slogan "No Tricks, No Trials, No Traps" has proven true and made the game a beacon for free-to-play design. There is a store, and Trion would sure like it if you used it, but if you don't, there is still a whole game to explore, all the way through endgame. That raises the question: why exactly would you subscribe and is it even worth it when so much is available for free? That's the question we're out to answer today.
