Rift’s latest expansion, Starfall Prophecy, is the first time I find myself having run with Trion’s flagship game since around the time of Storm Legion.

There's probably thousands of artifacts out there for you to find. It's almost a bit daunting actually. Thank the lord for minions, who have made this a bit simpler.
For the past two years, RIFT has been the one MMO that is always on my playlist. Perhaps there is a special event going on. Perhaps I was just getting bored and wanted to see some familiar faces.

Or is it a whirlpool that will suck players in with its powerful current? Let’s dive in and find out!
