What is Planarite?
Planarite is a special type of currency in Rift. It comes from sealing Rifts, defeating Invasions, and destroying footholds. While the primary source of Planarite is from planar invasions (hence the name) you can earn some for destroying enemy PvP footholds as well. In this guide I will explain to you how you can use your Planarite and Sourcestones.
I can use Planarite for?
Planarite can then be exchanged for goods at the planar vendor. Planar vendors can be found both in zones and in the main cities of Sanctum and Meridian. Different planar vendors provide different rewards. For example, just south of Argent Glade in Silverwood, Guardians can exchange Planarite for low-level rare and epic pieces of equipment.
I actually don’t have the whole list of Planarites. This is because the best use of Planarite is to exchange in Sanctum (Guardians) or Merdian (Defiant). PS. Just to be on the same page here Guardians call them Planarite but Defiants has different name for this. It’s Sourcestones.
You can exchange large quantities of Planarite (up to 7500!) for an upgraded planar focus (the best one currently in game). The planar focus lets you equip planar essences, which provide nice stat bonuses. After you get the best planar focus you can use that to buy ascended powers and or some other items that can help you during the game.
How can I earn my Planarites?
Ok for the beginning, just to make one thing clear you want to earn planarites just for being at the right place at the right time. It doesn’t work that way. You will have to participate in Rift and invasions. You can do this by attacking enemies and increasing your participation bar which will be located under your mini-map. You will need to fill your participation bar to at least the first notch, there are four total notches. That’s the only way you can earn Planarites. So get into it today.
Can I earn other Currencies?
The answer is yes off course. There are 2 currencies involved also sourceshards and sourcestones. But you can’t earn these by invasions. You can only earn these types from tougher enemies. Sourceshards are of rare quality and drop off of small bosses. In particular, these seem to be common from beating the final boss of a Rift in the second bonus round (stage #5) and end-bosses of smaller invasions. Sourcestones are of epic quality and only drop off of large bosses. The only time I have found these is when beating the final boss of an invasion event. By final boss, I am referring to the special enemy which spawns after completing all of the objectives of an invasion. Soureshards and sourcestones are tiered as well. You will get a different type of sourceshard off of level 15 enemies then you will off at level 25 enemies. There are multiple tiers of these items. These high-quality rewards can be used for various items
Planarite Guide Conclusion
I hope this guide helps you. All in all just do a lot of invasions and earn Planarites once you earn 7500 buy something that can benefit you and you can use it .
