Bill Fisher has posted a new developer diary on the official Rift site to lay out the details for the upcoming Loyalty Rewards program that will arrive with the game's F2P iteration. Philosophically, the program is very similary to Veteran's Rewards but tailored for the new version of Rift.
You gain Loyalty by:
- Purchasing or Spending Credits
- Subscribing as a Patron
- Consuming REX
The last one is the important loop hole to note – while REX is initially purchased with real money, it can be traded or auctioned by players for in-game currency before it is consumed and converted to Credits. This means you can gain Loyalty without ever spending real money at the RIFT Store. (We’ll talk more about REX in another post)
