Like with most other MMORPGs, it's unquestionable that money is a big part of Rift. In Telara, it's called Platinum. You can used it to trade any item from merchants. Whether it's new armors, new weapons or consumable items, you will need lots of platinum to be able to go on a shopping spree. Basically, platinum is an important aspect of the game. In order to continuously progress towards end-game, there will be many times when that progress needs to be supported by money such as when buying sub-classes (known as souls in Rift). There are several ways to gain platinum. You can browse through the auction house and sell your unwanted items there. Questing is another popular means for making money. With the obvious need for money in the game, many RMT shops are quick to make the currency available at their shops. Another more risky means for making money is buying them from RMT shops over the internet.
