  • Rift collapses in: 5:00


  • The Rift Barrier will periodically emit slow moving branded shard projectiles. These will arc towards the ground at a marked spot.
  • Standing a character on the middle of a marked spot will allow the character to catch the projectile.
    • Successfully catching the shard will knock your character back; this can be avoided by jumping just before it reaches you.
  • Smash the caught shard against the Rift Barrier using the  Throw Crystal Shard.png Crystal Breaker skill to damage it.
