3.0 Soul Open Testing

Rift 3.0 Open Soul Testing

3.0 Soul (Patch 2.7) Open Testing has begun as of Monday, 17th March 2014 on the Public Test Shard (“PTS”).

  • “TEST 2.7 Soul Box” in Master Mode Dummy Foundry on the Public Test Shard.
  • No NDA; free to post videos and information on the souls.
  • As it is on PTS, all abilities/values still subject to change.

Overview

The 3.0 Souls that are slated for Patch 2.7 have been up on the PTS for public testing since Monday, 17th March 2014.

The new souls are:

These souls will be made available on the Live shards with Patch 2.7 which is arriving on 7th May 2014.

Accessing the PTS

The Public Test Shard (“PTS”) is on a separate client from the Live client. As such you will need to download the PTS Client.

There is information on accessing the PTS and Dummy Foundry here.

Accessing the Dummy Foundry

There is an instance called the “Dummy Foundry” on the PTS. There’s two versions of the instance – Expert and Master Mode.

The Expert version sends you to a version of Golem Foundry with a ton of raid-buffed/debuffed Dummies – a huge plethora for any situation and even ones for tanks. There’s also an NPC called Fluffy that provides you with Level 50 gear, PA XP and a Level 50 Potion to auto-level to 50.

The Master Mode version sends you to a version with a single NPC who sells Level 60 Potion and Level 60-related gear and items. This is where you obtain the 3.0 Souls Test Pack.

  • Right-click your Portrait and choose Master Mode for the Dungeon Difficulty.
  • Click on the Bear Trap located near the porticulum in Sanctum, Meridian and Tempest Bay.
  • Now you’re in. Speak to the NPC.
  • To exit, click on any of the Bear Traps in the instance. Blue goes to Sanctum; Yellow goes to Tempest Bay; Red goes to Meridian.

Getting the 3.0 (2.7) Soul Test Pack

The 3.0 (2.7) “TEST 2.7 Soul Box” is located in the Master Mode version of Dummy Foundry.

Once you get there, it should be at the very bottom of Mr. SL Raid 1’s vendor window.

Note: PTS and Live servers are separate – as such anything you do on the PTS won’t affect your Live account. However:

WARNING: DO NOT SPEND CREDITS ON THE PTS. Unless the item is account-based purchase, IT WILL NOT CARRY OVER TO LIVE SHARDS.

Gear

Mr. SL Raid 1 in the Master Mode Dummy Foundry also sells Tier 2 and 3 Raid Test Gear for all the classes, including Mage Tank gear. There’s also Synergy Crystal test packs for the new souls that are also obtained from Mr. SL Raid 1.

3.0 (2.7) Soul Feedback

Trion has indicated that you can post videos and any information related to the souls. However, please be aware that everything is subject to change so take all abilities/values as highly in-flux.
