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 raids in these channels.
Once you enter a raid, a prompt frame would probably appear asking 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 moves to another zone event.
If you want to get back home, just right click your portrait and click on the option to bring you home. Like joining another player's instance, it will just port yourself at the exact same location in the world you were before but on your home shard.
And contrary to back in a while, porting via a skill or a porticulum, and being rezzed will keep yourself on the shard you are visiting. Even porting from one map to another (Mathosia <> Storm Legion) will keep yourself on the shard you are visiting. Nevertheless, you can not join another's player instance if you are on two different maps (it works only within the same map).
One last thing, porting into an instance (raid, dungeon, chronicle, warfront, conquest, or dimension) and then porting back to the open world will port you back to 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 or that could not be updated
- Shard population
- How many zone events are running on a shard on Mathosia and on Storm Legion continents
- How many unstable zone events are running on a shard
- How many Bloodfire Behemoth zone events are running on a shard
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 number of currently on going instances of this zone event is displayed.

You can track zone events in different zones by clicking "Zones".
On this page, the zone database is displayed.
