A few other additional highlights for those not interested in reading through the entire patch notes (note: these are not the entire patch notes):

  • Most dimension keys on the Rift Store are now tradeable and giftable.


  • A new quest line has been added to Necropolis. Find Prepo Detolo and see what you can do to help him win his true love. [You can find this quest at Necropolis – should be fairly obvious where from the mini-map as you port to the place via the porticulum.]


  • Increased the amount of damage reduction provided by max Valor at level 60 to 84%.
  • Increased the amount of healing and absorb reduction in PVP at level 60 to 58%.
