RIFT 2.8 Hot Fix #4 – 08/20/14

The Budgies are Back – in Pink!
New Lovely Budgie mounts can be acquired from Limited Edition: Budgie Troves, available on the Rift Store and by completing the achievement Chicken Run! Umbral, Ashen, and Frosty Budgies can be purchased with Bird Seed, obtained from the Limited Edition: Budgie Trove and by completing daily quests in Silverwood, Freemarch, Pelladane, and Cape Jule.

This event starts at 3:30 PM server time on August 21st, and ends at 3:30 PM server time on August 28th!

* Fixed an issue where fishing could be interrupted continuously.

* A new way to take beautiful screenshots has been added! By default, Control + P will now take a screenshot with your UI hidden rather than having to hide it manually. You can rebind this ability in the keybindings window.
* Fixed an issue causing faraway objects to be permanently shadowed.
* The main map now works correctly while using the low-quality renderer.

* Due to the increased volume of successful auction house sales, we have reduced the deposit costs for both auctions and buy orders of short, medium, and long durations.
* There is now a dropdown selector in the Auction House that will let you specify the default price you want to see for items when you are creating auctions and buy orders. Suggested price will give you a recommended price from our servers and My Last Price will give you the prices you used when you last created an auction with this item.



* Cinder Burst: Reduced damage done.
Accelerant: This debuff now increases damage taken by 2/4/6/8%. Down from 3/6/9/12%.

* Expanded Contagion: This talent no longer references Combust.


* Mobs and bosses in the standard version of Nightmare Coast now deal 50% less damage in order to bring them in line with standard dungeon difficulty.
