The Rifts and the Elemental Planes Edit
Rifts are breaches in the fabric of reality made by planar invaders to assault other worlds. Rift Tears are rifts in the process of opening. Any of the 6 planes can appear after a certain time period after a Tear appears. Rifts may also be opened through Rift Tears manually by Defiants or Guardians. There are three other rift difficulties: Major Rifts, Expert Rifts and Raid Rifts.
Major Rifts are pretty much the same as Minor Rifts in terms of enemy appearance, but the difficulty is harder, therefore the rewards are better.
They have one additional stage, totalizing 6.
The Elemental Planes and their Leaders Edit
Throughout the start of the war, the Planar Dragon Gods fought to keep control over their planes. Some succeeded, yet others have been defeated.
