CADRIFT

CHEEVO HUNTER

MARIEL-TAUN


mariel-taun day is rifts version of valentines day
there are only a couple of cheevos to be earned
there are usually a few costume items and mounts added to the rift store with a very pink theme!
mounts from previous years will be available for direct credit purchase, the newest mounts will generally be inside lock-boxes. the same goes for old/new costume items.
there is no unique currency for the event and no quests/farming to be done!

HISTORY
the very first mariel-taun day in rift was in 2012, waaay back before rift was even 1 year old!
rift had just released its in-game marriage system, allowing couples to tie the knot in game
on the 14th february 2012 rift had 21,879 couples get married in game, setting a world record for most online marriages in a 24hour period
you can find the information for this world record here!

LEGACY CHEEVOS


back in the day trion thought that everyone in the whole game would really enjoy being all loved up during valentines week... so they sent every player an ability that allowed them to spread the love!
when they opened their mailbox they would be given 3 stacks of a special love bug buff and gain a reactive ability to allow them to spread the love bug to other players.. this would create an aura of love around the targeted player, surrounding them with a hint of pink bubble and floaty love hearts. once the player had used the ability 3 times spreading the 'infection' to 3 other players they would then gain immunity from infection for an hour..
as you can imagine, this is like the worlds worst pyramid scheme...
players were unable to get rid of the love bug infection, unable to get rid of the reactive ability that popped up and many players were very very upset that their characters were constantly surrounded by floaty lovehearts and pinkness.
the reactives were super annoying in raids, especially in raids where actual mechanics also had reactive abilities pop up.

so the love bug was treated as the bug that it was and removed from the game along with the cheevos that went with it
QUANTITY OVER QUALITY

TRY NOT TO LOOK TOO DESPERATE

the devs have vowed it will never return!
however, they did add a love bug potion to the rift store that applies the visual effect to just your character

there is also the coastal aphrodisiac made by apothacary
these are very easy to farm the mats for and give pretty much the same effect
