ZAM Launches Rift Database
With a complete inventory of every player discovered weapon, armor piece, item, recipe, and collection in the game, we proudly unveil our Rift Database!
We're pleased to annouce the unveiling of our Rift database! Every player discovered weapon, armor piece, item, recipe, artifact collection, ability, and achievement is cataloged and searchable. It's like Wowhead.... for Rift!
Click here to go directly to the database search for items, recipes, collections, achievements or abilities. Or, if you just feel like browsing, you can select one of the options from the database menu dropdown here at ZAM Rift.
Read beyond the break to learn more about how you can find exactly the piece of Rift information that you're looking for and what you can expect from the ZAM database in the coming weeks. But if you can't wait any longer, dive into the database and check things out!
There are thousands upon thousands of different things to see in the database, and it is highly recommended that anyone using the database include some filters to limit the scope of their search. With nearly 32,000 items to sort through in the item database alone, setting some parameters for your search is definitely a good idea.
To make things easier to find initially, I've gone ahead and split the database up into the various sections for you to browse.
The backbone of almost all MMOs, finding the best item for your character is incredibly important. Armor, weapons, rings, and more fall into the item category, so most gamers will likely spend a great deal of their time in this database searching for two-handed axes like Wyrmrend, leather armor like Thieves Girdle, or the perfect off-hand item like Voltaic Totem. Check out what players have found... there's definitely some unique items in there!
Crafting is an artform, and those that truly love to hone their skills will find a large variety of information in the recipe database with everything from the necessary items listed to make a Band of Crystallized Mana (with links to those items included) to how much your Blazing Precise Runeshard sells for to a merchant. Want to become the most efficient crafter on your shard? This is the place to find out!
One of the most fun parts of any MMO is trying to complete everything in the game, and the collection part of Rift definitely focuses squarely on that singular function. Unlike the game, however, the ZAM collections database has every single player discovered collection not only listed, but we include the rewards for that collection as well. Want to know what you gain from the Exarch Invader Storm Artifacts? Simply look it up and find out!
If youíre an achievement collector, this is definitely the tool for you. With a few options selected in the filter, you can search through the entire list of in-game achievements by categories like character advancement, PvP, dungeons, planes, and zones. Additionally, the list can be sorted by faction, so if youíre looking to show your pride and collect all the Defiant based achievements, thatís a totally viable option.
While youíre playing an MMO, itís not always easy to figure out exactly what abilities would work best for you while youíre PvEing of PvPing, so weíve gathered them all for you! Using our ability database letís you quickly and easily locate exactly what abilities are used by souls, which we think is pretty handy.
Like any brand new feature, there are a few known bugs in the database. As they become known (and squashed), I will do my best to keep them updated on this page. So far, these include:
* Discovered recipes that include items that aren't discovered, leading to a broken tooltip.
* Some item icons are missing.
* Item menu needs some tweaking for easier navigation.
We're definitely not stopping with just these database sections, and players will soon be able to browse through our database for quests, NPCs, and even more tools to make finding exactly what you want even easier. We've worked hard to bring you the information you've come to expect from top tier MMO sites, and we hope you enjoy what you find!
That's it for now, folks! Feel free to do some exploring on your own, because there's plenty to see in the database. Now we can truly let the gaming begin... and don't forget to check out our Soul Tree Calculator!http://rift.zam.com/story.html?story=25603
