Rift: Sanctum and Beta Keys

I received the latest issue of Riftwatch the Rift newsletter in my inbox yesterday detailing a new city in Telara. Sanctum is the home city of the Guardians faction where the King Cyril Kalmar resides and commands the Guardians in their quest to protect Telara.

The lore does mention that the leaders of the Elves and Dwarves are there too, the Dwarf leader having designed the city itself. There’s some nice info about the layout and the various factions residing in Sanctum so go have a read.

Thanks to our very own Wodge I did manage to get a VIP key from last night and duly twittered the location of the keys so others could try and grab one, I know some of you did so grats to all! I have a few keys on my account now, not sure if having more than one on there gives you a greater chance of getting into the beta but it can’t hurt. So if I get in I just need some tips on how to make a baby sleep for a weekend so I can play the beta. ;) Oh and my work decided it was a good idea to have our Christmas party on the same day the beta starts, honestly don’t they  know about Rift?

Anyway, I am getting quite excited about this game now, though I am tempering my excitement somewhat as I’ve been let down so many times in the past. Apart from Everquest Next it’s the only upcoming MMO I’m that interested in at the moment.

Hope to see some of you in beta, look out for Yetian if I make it in, though I’m sure I’ll let you know here if I do.


  • According to the website, VIP keys are guanranteed access to all phases and windows of beta testing, so you should be good to go if you have a VIP key associated with your account.

    • Ah nice. :)

      Any future keys I receive shall be Tweeted. :)

  • Thanks again for the heads up! I had no idea it was going to be a VIP key, I was so happy when I saw it show up in my account after I typed it in. Now I have an extra one too.

    • Your welcome. :) That's what the mmo community should be about, helping each other enjoy mmo's. :)

  • Want to play rogue badly on Rift. seen vidoes and rifts
