With Rift’s upcoming 1.9 patch we will all be able to go back to those zones. And exactly how will this be done in Rift? Players will be able to de-level themselves in order to either match a lower level player, or to set the level of their choice in order to complete lower level content. When a player lowers their level, they are known as an Ascended Mentor. Because of this, their effectiveness is reduced as a result.
