The Carnival of the Ascended has already launched, an epic seven week event celebrating Rift's first anniversary. Earlier today, Trion has announced several bonus promotions going on throughout the month of March. Previous subscribers to Rift can check out the game again with the Return to Telara, which gives a full week of unrestricted gameplay from March 8 - March 14. After the week is over any characters above level 20 will be inaccessible without an active subscription.
To bring in the anniversary month in style, active subscribers will enjoy four bonus weekends! The first weekend is Ascended Weekend, which will run from March 2 - March 4. During this weekend enjoy a 25% bonus to adventure and planar attunement experience from kills, favor and prestige from kills, Plaques of Achievement, Marks of Ascension, Planarite and guild experience! Head over to Trion's community website to take a peek at the full schedule of the rest of these weekends.
