Rex for (not so good) Gamer.

Update posted by Gutek Kekhai On Jul 22, 2017

REX (Rift Exchange) is a tradeable item that – upon use – will provide you with 1,250 Credits and 2,500 Loyalty. Upon using up the Credits you’ll get a further 2,500 Loyalty (2 Loyalty Points per 1 Credit spent).

The great thing about REX is that demand will almost always exceed the supply of REX. Why? Because there’s few reasons to have large amounts of plat other than the Greater Essence rare drops or to afford high-end craft mats so supply of REX will be low, but there’s plenty of reasons to get REX.

There are certain upgrades like extra Bag Slots, Storm Legion Souls and Character Slots that are only available via Credits. Same applies to rune-unsocketing, weapon wardrobe, race/gender/faction change and premium mounts/pets/wardrobe. Thus unless a player is willing to spend real money to directly purchase Credits to spend on, they’ll want REX.

Buyers of REX actually save platinum by purchasing REX, receiving the 1,250 Credits and then spending it on items that have both a REX and platinum option.

To give an example, The 150% mounts cost 1,000 platinum or 630 Credits. See where this is going? That makes 1 Credit = 1.58 Platinum. Or in other words 1 REX = 1,250 Credits = 1,984 Platinum.

REX is an important part of Rift’s Free-to-Play model so is unlikely to ever become obsolete.
