News: RIFT 2.4 Hotfix #2 Round 2

CM Morgana has updated RIFT 2.4 Hotfix #2 with a couple of lines that were missing from the previous notes.

Below is the updated notes with the extra lines in Maroon so they can be easily identified to those who have read the previous version of these notes.

RIFT 2.4 Hot Fix #2 (Extra Notes) – 25/9/13

GENERAL

Quite a few new additions to the patchnotes. Most notably, the old Mercenary PvP gear is now convertible to Favor as promised with a simple SHIFT+Right Click (rather than a recipe, thank goodness) as well as craft recipe drops being fixed (i.e., augment recipes no longer only dropping from SHs).

And of course, the achievement Character Portrait addition that Simon promised. Looks sweet, and should be able to be combined with Elite/Raid portraits!
