  • Rift Wardens were originally level 24 Elementalist monsters found in the survival mission that introduced the Tournament. A team was rewarded with a 2% morale boost for each one killed. The format of the introductory mission was revamped in the June 29 2005 update and the Rift Wardens were replaced with the Unworthy Dead, and, later, the Zaishen Elite of Heroes' Ascent.
  • Consuming a Phantasmal Tonic turns a player character into a Rift Warden for 50 minutes.
  • Each year prior to Wintersday 2012, the Rift Warden appearance was delayed after the start of the Wintersday festivities. His appearance was believed to be at Monday 16:00 (UTC) after the first weekend of Wintersday events.
