Some News Tidbits for RIFT on 27th August 2014:

  • Oculus Rift Support – Further Info: CM Ocho has allayed fears that the introduction of experimental Oculus Rift support to RIFT might introduce new bugs and other issues into the game by stating that if the support causes any issues “it’ll be pulled”. He also went further to state that the code for Oculus Rift support could some day become useful for other areas of the game – and at present they have identified some lighting issues that have become apparent thanks to testing out the Oculus Rift.

  • Copy to PTS Fixed: Dev Pithos has confirmed that you can now properly copy your character to the Public Test Shard again! [r]
  • Class Changes – Cleric Warden: Kervik has confirmed that Warden changes will hit with next week’s hotfix. He also added that a stack of Dangers of the Deep will be applied every 4secs when out of combat and will now appear in its own UI instead of on the buff bar (similar to Conviction stacks for Justicars). [r]

    Below is a recap of the other changes coming to Warden: [r]
    • Alluvion – Now also increases the number of targets hit by Healing Flood by 5/10.
    • Under Pressure – Now also reduces the mana cost of Geyser, Healing Cataract, Healing Flood and Soothing Stream by 8/16/24%.
    • Dangers of the Deep – Stacks now also reduce the cast time of Warden abilities by 0.03/0.06/0.1s per stack.
    • Soothing Stream – Healing no longer decays over the duration of the HoT.
    • Ripple – Increase the base radius from 15m to 20m.
    • Distant Shores – Fix so it correctly affects the radius of Ripple and Monsoon
  • Trion welcomes new dev Rough Raptors: Rift content contributer, player and hardcore raider Rough Raptors has become a new Trion dev, officially now called Dev SupermanSocks. He has already been fixing bugs and implementing a whole bunch of features to the game, including additional tools for developers to use and some “very exciting” 3.0 features he’s not yet ready to talk about. [r] Congratulations to RoughRaptors!
  • Trion @ PAX Prime: Reminder that Trion will be at PAX Prime this week and will be holding a “Trion Community Party” at 7PM PDT on Friday, August 29th at W Hotels (Seattle) in Seattle, Washington. Info on the event as well as what panels Trion will be at can be found here.
