Hotfix Feature Image

Trion is updating RIFT with RIFT 2.7 Hotfix #14 at 7:30AM PDT on 16th July 2014 (NA) and 1AM GMT on 17th July 2014 (EU).


  • Summerfest-related:
    • Daryl at the Summerfest quest hub in Sanctum/Meridian now offers a “Capture: the Prize” quest for those players who completed the “Capture: Them All!” quest but didn’t get their Summerfest Friendship Bracelet reward.
    • Summer Sunfish are no longer soulbound.
    • Summerfest Party Basket now drops Dark Ice Mage Tank Essences and Necklaces (they already drop the others for other classes/roles).
  • Chat Cut-off Bug Fixed.
  • Patron Changes (Buffs):
    • Patron Pots/Vials have now become passive (so applied at all times instead of 2hrs per use). (don’t worry, you still have your Patron’s Artifact Tracking Vials!)
    • New Passive: Mounted Command reduces time to mount by 25% and reduces chance to dismount by 5% on top of the 10% mount speed increase that Patrons already get.
    • New Passive: Marvelous Luck – Increases chance to receive Marvelous items from Supply Crates (Marvelous = Raid Relic Upgrade Components, Mounts and very rare Pets/other items).
    • New Passive: Patron Focus – Reduces cast time of Call of the Ascended by 10 secs and reduces cooldown on Archaic Tablet, Charged Mirror, Consuming Flame, Petrified Rune, Renewing Seed and Soul Crystal Planar Abilities (not the consumables) by 15min.
    • New Ability: Patron Fast Pass – Allow an Ascended remote access to the Porticulum once every 30min (does not share a cooldown with the Brevanic Portal Generator item so you can use both).
  • Soul Changes:
    • Mage Arbiter and major Stormcaller Changes. Detailed list here.
    • Warrior Void Knight fix.
  • Bindings of Blood: Maelforge – various fixes.

* Most talents and abilities have been changed or removed, and new ones have been added. Major differences include:
– Hypothermia: Has been removed.

– In general, Air abilities will generate Charge while Water abilities will consume it.

* Furious Rage, Staggering Rage:
Fixed an issue where the interruption effect could stay on the character indefinitely.

* Zone Event: Bloodfire Behemoth: Amon T’Drok is now less talkative during battle.

* Quest: Stone Cold Survivors: This quest should now complete MUCH more reliably.
* Quest: The Source of the Problem: Wrested a Mine Cart of Infinite Sourcestone from the grasp of the Golden Maw. (Thanks to Jhonkeiver and Lerogue from Seastone!)


* Fixed an issue that could cause Maelforge to become stuck in situations with server latency spikes.
* Asias now correctly applies his reset for Life’s Rapture.
* Corrected the tooltip for Burning Pyronite to correctly display a range of 40m instead of 30m.
* Magcilian will no longer cast Dire Flames without a target in range, or immediately after Lava Tether.

    I think Patron Focus shortens the CD from 2 minutes to 1 minute 45 seconds, not by 15 minutes, which would require more time travel than I think even these devs want to deal with.

    Also, I think the Fast Pass is reset by the Brevanic Batteries that keep piling up in my vault. See Archonix post.

    Way cool changes.

      I think they are referring to the Planar Abilities, not the Consumable versions. The Planar Abilities are now 15min CD for Patrons instead of 30min. The consumables were a short CD but the Planar Abilities you get in Tier 3 PA tree are long CDs.

      And yep, added that bit about the battery in to the extended post about the new Patron buffs.

      My bad, sorry. I was unaware of the Planar Ability versions (never having gotten close to Tier 3 PA). :/
