I just started trying out the summer festival in Rift yesterday morning. It’s different and fun. I enjoyed the scavenger hunt. I loved the bug squashing quest and got to show off my ascend a friend bonuses. I even did the fishing quests!
All this pales in comparison to what I just learned from Syp. He told me about the critter collecting that happens during Summerfest. He didn’t just make my night, he made my week! This man is a hero. Someone give him a medal.
The deal is there are specific named critters running around certain zones and you can capture them and make them your own.
I KNOW!!! I’M EXCITED, TOO!
Syp shared this article on Rift Junkies that explains and lists the specific pets. I decided to go after the Black Bunny since I was already familiar with Silverwood. I made my target macro (/tar Black) like the article suggested and I also referenced Zam Rift as they had several locations to look for the rabbit listed.
I was just about to call it a night. It’s late and I’m old when I found it!! Everyone meet my new pet, the Black Bunny!
Oh yeah and a bunch of other Rift stuff happened like I bought a bikini, I dinged 40, blah blah blah. Whatever! I just caught a bunny!!!!
Thanks Syp! I’m totally looking for more tomorrow!
