It’s that time of year once again when the Ascended are called to aid Atrophinous with the Autumn Harvest. This special RIFT world event is a Fae celebration of the harvest, MEEAAADDDD…, and all things spooky beginning on October 26, 2017. This is a basic guide on the quests and some of the items you can expect to find during this event.
Autumn Harvest Quests
To begin the Autumn Harvest quests head to your factions capital city, Sanctum or Meridian and speak with Jhonen. He will offer the daily quest Pumpkin Patching where you are tasked to decorate the Realm of the Autumn Harvest with pumpkins. Head out into Silverwood or Freemarch to collect 6 pumpkins, the location will be marked on your map with a star. Once you’ve collected the pumpkins look on your world map for a Faerie Ring marker, this looks like an icon with a mushroom.
Once you reach the Faerie Ring location on your map click on the bowl of mead to enter the Realm of the Autumn Harvest. Once inside look for piles of pumpkins and then decorate to complete the quest. The Pumpkin Patching quest will reward you with 25 Autumn Harvest Ambersap, the Ambersap is the more common currency obtainable during the event to purchase a variety of items from the store or event vendors. You can gain this currency from completing daily quests, closing rifts that give experience, and from zone events.
After you’ve decorated the area have a chat with Rollo, he will offer two quests. Fright Night is a weekly quest and will be available 3 times awarding 7 Autumn Harvest Signets, this is the rare event currency. Players will be able to collect 21 total Autumn Harvest Signets (per character). Rollo wants you to complete 20 of the Featured: Spooky Adventures In Gloamwood, this is a special Instant Adventure series for the event. To que these adventures just press the period (.) key to access the IA panel and click Join.
Rollo would also like you to gather the secret ingredient for Atrophinous’ mead and will offer the daily quest Autumncap Haul. Head out into any Mathosia zone (except for Iron Pine Peak and Stillmoor) to harvest 8 Autumncap Fungi. The fungi are scattered all about the zones, you will find them on trees and near rocks.
The Autumncap Haul quest will reward you with a Potion of Enhanced Autumn Eyes and 25 Autumn Harvest Ambersap. When you drink the Potion of Enhanced Autumn Eyes you will be able to see and collect artifacts for 2 minutes within the Realm of the Autumn Harvest.
Atrophinous offers two daily quests Hand of the Harvest and The Reaping. For Hand of the Harvest you can assist Atrophinous by killing Summer Ravagers, pulling up Life Roots, kicking compost crawlers back into their pin, and killing Frostjacks. These can be found around the Realm of Autumn Harvest and doing 15 of any type of these tasks will complete the quest rewarding you with 25 Autumn Harvest Ambersap.
The Reaping quest is also a daily and requires you to head out into the game world and close the 2 specific types of Rifts requested, the planar type will change daily. Make sure to mentor down to a level that will give experience before closing the rifts or you won’t receive credit. Upon completion of this quest you will be rewarded with 25 Autumn Harvest Ambersap.
