As part of RIFT’s server unification process, Trion Worlds will be resetting the names of inactive characters. Those who have an inactive character will be receiving an email with instruction on how to preserve the name, and in order to save said character name, players will need to log into each inactive character before October 23. The firm said this is its way of freeing up character names for players headed to new shards. More information can be found through the link. Thanks, TenTonHammer.
