Harbinger, Crafts and Allitu

Expect more development in this.  One last quick addition is a stub and general information for Allitu, one of the many areas and communities being documented here. This is the start of the cataloging of all build pages that are currently active and some new sections to include multiple builds in each.

Philosophy and Contributions

We release news and updates about Rift when they meet our criteria for importance. We do not cover every piece of news that is released by the developers as news or and update because what is important to them may not be important to us, such as a meaningless weekend promotion that is only to make money. Our news is also cross referenced with other sources not directly related to the developers. 

News releases and updates that we cover directly relating to the Guides For Rift website (GFR) are done as we see needed. This will normally include any major changes in content. new guide releases or even structure changes. 

Contributions: Do you have a news story, guide or anything else you would like to submit to use or have hosted here? Join Us! Message a mod on our discord channel or send a message to the GFR Team to join up!

Developers to us are the people who develop, contribute and interact with the player base. Gamigo has bought Rift and its sister games however the game is still run on Trion website and logo after almost a year. For this reason we may still refer to the developers as a Trion company.
