Aion: A guide to Rifts and PvP

Rifts periodically open between Asmodae and Elysea. There doesn’t appear to be any set time between the opening of a rift and sometimes, it doesn’t even open both ways. The opening of a rift will broadcast a message to everybody in the zone and everybody who enters the zone for as long as the rift stays open. You can also look up into the sky and see a blue swirling vortex indicating a rift is open somewhere in the zone.

This one was in a higher level section of Eltnen. We had our
work cut out for us reaching the lower level parts of Morheim <.>

The first zone you’ll encounter Rifts in is Eltnen (Elyos) or Morheim (Asmodians). There can only be one rift up in a zone of each type (exit and entry) and they spawn at one of several designated locations. The other two zones that can have rifts between them are Heiron (Elyos) and Beluslan (Asmodians).

One of the easiest way to see rift locations on your map is to copy and paste the following into your in-game memopad. Then you can simply click the links and they will show on the map.

It’s beneficial to have both Elyos and Asmodian sets on your map, so you can  see where your enemies are flooding in from. Note that rifts are one way for both races. You can’t go back through a rift you came in from and you can’t enter an attacker’s rift.

Rifts last for up to 26 minutes before they disperse. They also have level requirements; generally, the further the rift is from the fortress, the higher the level requirements. It also works in the opposite way, though… the closer you are to the fortress, the lower your level has to be for you to enter. This is to help prevent mass ganking by high levels xD. Each rift has a set number of people that can enter before it disperses; generally the lower level the rift, the fewer people it lets in.

Finally, be prepared when you step inside! The place will be crawling with enemy players and they would love no more than to zerg your sorry arse. Keep moving and don’t ever let yourself get pinned down in one location. Avoid the heavy questing areas (you’ll learn to recognise them). If you have 40k to spare, purchase a Group Kisk before you enter and place it somewhere safe and out of the way on the other side, to give your group a respawn should things go awry. And if you kill too many low level players, you’ll get cursed — you will be displayed on the map to all enemy players. The curse shows in the top right of your screen when you have it.
