News: RIFT 2.4 Hotfix #2

Trion has updated RIFT with RIFT 2.4 Hotfix #2.

RIFT 2.4 Hot Fix #2 – 25/9/13

* Players should no longer be occasionally locked out of their own random LFD instances.
* Fixed a bug that could (rarely) send players clicking on the “Return to Graveyard” button to the Plane of Water! (This was less exciting than it sounds, because they’d crash due to not having patched the map yet…)

RIFT STORE

Oh, this one was fun. What a shame. šŸ˜› Loved getting Rift Tombed/Prisoned and ending up being able to continue moving somewhat in a disoriented fashion.

Plane of Water Respawn
Wow, that sounds interesting. Wonder if the map was patched on PTS? Probably fixed now though, but worth a test.

Maklamos’ Doom rooting
Interestingly I have never seen this ability; either that or it never rooted anyone in the few times I duo’d the chronicle. Must be something that gets overwritten based on DPS.

No mention of fixing that issue where you wouldn’t get the achieve for Maklamos for not getting hit by Quartz Blast even if you line of sighted every blast. They said they’d have it out by this hotfix, but there’s no mention of it.

Realm of Twisted Dreams – Jump Puzzle Reward
Ooo. Didn’t know there was a jump puzzle in RotD. That must be the whole sinister mob pet that emotes randomly.

Conqueror Achievements added
Good to see they’ve finally added the Infinity Gate conqueror achievement to both RotD and Infinity Gate.

Freelancer gear to Favor
There’s no mention of Freelancer gear turning to Favor via a recipe that Daglar mentioned before. Hopefully they simply forgot to add it to the patch notes.
