What is a Dimension?

Dimensions (also known as “player housing”) are part of the gameplay experience in the game RIFT. As a player (or guild) you can purchase various keys and own a sliver of Telara, the explorable world within RIFT. Dimensions are fully customizable with items and building blocks you acquire throughout your adventures or you can purchase items directly from merchants. They offer you the freedom and ability to build anything you can dream and share your creations with fellow “Dimensioneers”, friends, or guildies.
