I don't think you just get the mount, you have to finish the last few stages of the rift (and probably a major rift).. to get a 'chance' to win one... so they might actually be pretty rare..

Pretty cool though.. I keep thinking I might give Rift another try at some point.

I hope that the Defiance game isn't a side-order just to boost Rift's popularity.
I was in the Rift beta, then played for about a year, was nice, but i'm not here to go back there.
I'm here to see Defiance succeed, become bigger, and for the game to finally go somewhere.

Although, in the past weeks, i received about 5 emails regarding Rift.
And none regarding Defiance...

I think it only fair that Defiance players should get Courage the Corgi.

Or better yet, an infector that spawns corgis. :D

I basically today finished up one of the pursuits for the tie in stuff and cant do the other one until they add the contract for it, so I thought I'd enable the storm legion expansion and DL rift again... then learned that my timing was perfect.... they're down for the next 3 hours to add the patch and when I read the patch notes that they were getting the mounts and rifts I was like.... what.... ok... Im getting one there if we cant gettem here.

I've a 50 rogue from the month I played over a year ago so I should be ok to have a decent chance on trying for it but Im gonna be so rusty playing that its not even funny hehe.

That's an awesome cross promotion! I'm sure the hellbug rift is to get people in rift to check this out if they haven't already, and not the other way around.
I'd actually really like to play rift again, but I really don't want to drop $ on a sub fee when I need food in my belly :(

Cluster Corgi Cannon. Fires one full size corgi that on impact splits into several smaller corgis which then explode!

I would prefer a mass infector that "sheeps" other players. Especially those players driving their vehicles in circles around Arkfalls.

Im downloading Rift now. I played it about 2 years ago great game but i couldn't keep up the sub. Still need a better computer to play it but im downloading it now to try and get one of these mounts. Knowing Rift when its gone its gone.

Cool, Rift was by far the best MMORPG i've ever played. Always wondered why it never got more popular than it was. But esh...great idea with Hell Rifts, makes for promotion of both Defiance and Rift.

Unless it's changed, last time I played you could macro one button and it does everything for you. If macros are still in, then I think you will be back to pro levels in the amount of time needed to copy/paste one.

Here's my thoughts on the statement:

I think Rift is a lot like many other fantasy mmo's, and people didn't want to leave their maxed out characters to start over in Rift. I personally prefer Rift over other fantasy mmo's due to the many options in the soul tree system.

My mage wound up with one of everything by the time I stopped playing. A mount is a mount is a mount in my opinion. Once you have it, it's no big deal anymore.

Yeah I enjoyed Rift when I was playing it but I just got fed up with the sub system, especially in the current financial climate.

If rift was f2p with item shop or even b2p id be playing it now, i got storm legion free for buying defiance but havnt opened it yet from steam as it has a monthly fee anyway.

That would be hilarious, I can just imagine how that would look in PVP.

At this point I think it'd be the most entertaining gun in the game.

Wait wait wait wait wait...can someone explain this to me please? I have Rift. What are they adding to it that has to do with Defiance? Is it just a chance at a Hellbug mount or is it guaranteed when I complete a rift?

There are specific fire rifts that when you complete all 5 stages have a chance to drop hellbug companion pets and mounts.

I'm really playing Defiance because Trion has earned my full loyalty with Rift. I got in the Defiance Alpha and Beta and had to remake my character so many times I had all the creation settings memorized lol... so I decided to make a copy cat character in Rift. Running around doing fire rifts today in raid groups really had the same feel of everyone rushing to an arkfall, I love it! My character now feels complete with her new title and I'm already thinking of ways to make her dimension look like Defiance Earth. The only downside in my opinion is that doing rifts for hellbugs is taking away from my arkfall time to try to get my character on the show!
