Welcome to Rift Event Watcher
This simple website allows you to track zone events anywhere on Telara on any shard.
First, I would strongly recommend that you join your region's cross-shard zone event channel:
- Crossevents@Faeblight for North America cluster #1
- Crossevents@Gelidra for Europe cluster #1
- Crossevents@Brisesol for Europe cluster #2
You should easily find cross-shard zone event farming raid in these channels.
Once you enter a raid, a prompt frame would probably appear asking you if you want to join a player's instance, simply decline. Then, ask the raid leader who you have to join and where the raid is. Therefore, go to the location the raid is, right click on the said player in the raid frame and click "Join instance". You will be ported onto the shard the player is, at the same location you were before joining him. You can now just do the zone event and repeat it whenever the raid move to another zone event.
But there are more things that you have to know about cross-shard traveling. Indeed, any teleportation skill use, any porticulum use, any other teleportation stuff (like the portals during the Silver Army zone event in Ashora) or even getting rezzed will bring you back to your home shard. On the other hand, soul walking or respawning and then walking back to your body will keep you on the shard you are on. The biofoundry is a special place when traveling on other shard too. Indeed, you can enter any shard biofoundry if and only if the biofoundry is currently opened on your home shard. You can still talk to NPCes or interact with mailboxes but they will act exactly like the ones on your home shard (so you will not access other shard's auction house or be able to do quest several times). By the way, cross-shard traveling is only possible on shards of the same cluster of your home shard.
And as final word: if you are lost in the matrix, type /shard
You can track zone events on different shards by clicking "Shards".
On this page, the shard list and many informations are displayed such as:
- Shard status: a icon is displayed in front of the shards that are locked
- Shard population
- How many zone events are running on a shard on Mathosia and on Storm Legion continents
Volan status: a icon is displayed if Volan is up, if he has been up in the past 17 hours, otherwise
Anyway, the last time he popped is displayed while hovering over the icon (date format: DD/MM/YYYY)
- Biofoundry status: a icon is displayed if the Biofoundry is open, otherwise
Then, you can click a shard to display said shard's running events.
You can track a specified zone events by clicking "Events".
On this page, the zone event database is displayed.
For each zone event, the amount of currently on going instances of this zone event is displayed.
