The Summerfest ended in Rift last week. I still didn’t get the last two capturable pets on my list but there’s always something to look forward to for next year.
Before things shut down I decided to treat myself to one last pet and purchased the store only pet, Sunset. She’s a pretty little birdy that flies over my short dwarven head. I’m told she also sings but it’s typically so noisy where I play that I haven’t heard it, yet.
In general, I did not enjoy phase 2 of the Summerfest. I got a couple quests done and they were fun and then I got to the camping ones.
I decided to just try again when phase 2 wasn’t so new and I almost finished the quest in Scarlet Gorge looking for the gorge gold when I realize I was just bored out of my wits waiting for rocks to appear in the hidey hole I put myself into. Even worse is the hidey hole was full of nasty spiders. So I gave up on those quests.
You know it’s got to be pretty bad if a festival lover like myself is willing to sit for 2 hours looking for a single squirrel but can’t handing waiting for glowing rocks to appear to finish a quest. I have weird limitations.
I’m back to trying to level. I’m currently level 43 which isn’t too bad really considering I’ve seriously been goofing off ever since Summerfest showed up.
There is a new event going on until September 4th that I’m going to check out. Mostly because I see some of the special rewards you can get are hats and cloaks! Time to pick out a new outfit now that summer is on the way out!
