Changes to 'Queued Quest Rewards' coming in RIFT update 1.8
As RIFT 1.8 Update quickly approaches, Trion is making an effort to help clarify a few changes that will impact players in the future.
Today, they explained the new way Queued Quest Rewards will work. For those unfamiliar, the Queued Quest Reward is just a general term used for any quest that leaves the diamond shaped loot icon at the top of your screen - most likely to appear after completing dungeons.
"We’re adding a maximum number of pending Queued Quest Rewards to prevent stockpiling rewards and XP for future content. This means that if you have any Queued Quest Rewards that you’re saving we highly encourage turning them in before 1.8 Arrives," RIFT community manager James "Elrar" Nichols explained. "In that same light – we’re also making some changes to how Queued Quest Rewards behave to make it more convenient and ensure you don’t miss out on the rewards they offer."
These will include:
- Cash and XP only rewards will pay out automatically as soon as you complete the quest. However, you’ll still have to manually redeem Queued Quest Rewards requiring you to choose a reward. (This will not be retroactive, you still need to loot outstanding quests before 1.8!)
- You’ll be notified when you’re getting close to the maximum number of pending turn-ins.
- You’ll always have access to the most recent Queued Quest Rewards with the oldest being replaced when you exceed the cap.
As a precaution, Trion "strongly recommends" that you claim all of your Queued Quest Rewards to "prevent stockpiling rewards and XP for future content." Customer Support will be unable to restore lost rewards for you, so be sure to get any XP, marks, and money you may have.
