In the mix of old and new in Rift Prime, the daily gift box apparently made the cut for inclusion.
In its Rift for this is the daily rewards calendar. You get something every day you log in.
I was on day six last night, which entitled me to a box of crafting materials.
Previous days were fireworks or void stones or other little things. So I claimed the box and opened it.
Oh, one of the things I didn’t bother to bring up in the last post was inventory management. Being a new character on a new server and all that, I had only the 20 slot starter bag… World of Warcraft finally matched that… plus whatever other bags I have been able to scrounge. That total hasn’t been much, leaving me with a grand total of 38 bag slots, which sounds like a lot, but really isn’t all that much for a packrat like myself.
I have tried to be good, vendoring things mercilessly to try and keep things from accumulating. Still, I keep getting little things that I hate to toss, but haven’t gotten around to using. How many stat buff scrolls can I use at once if they’re all for wisdom, right?
As I said, I opened the box, only to find it trying to dump in excess of 25 stacks of crafting materials on me. I probably had a dozen slots free, tops. So there I was with the clown car-like box waiting for me to clear bag space.
Fortunately I logged off in Meridian the night before, so I only had to walk across town to the bank NPC in order to start depositing thing. I’d hate for that to have happened if I were out in the field.
Like I said, I shouldn’t look a gift box in the… opening I suppose. But sometimes the generosity is a bit too much.
Still, if I remember to claim every day and get to Day 21 before it resets a mount is waiting for me.
We’ll see if I can wait that long for a mount. Freemarch is a tight zone, but when you’re in an invasion event group and everybody mounts up and rides off while you’re trotting along behind, it can try a player’s will.
