  • Relic Upgrades for Tier 2 store armor no longer require Heart of the Planebreaker.
  • You can now also upgrade your Tier 2 Relic store armor to Tier 3 Relic ‘Dream Walker’ grade (better than ‘Blood Storm’). [More info here.]

RIFT 2.8 Hot Fix #6 – 09/03/14

* Experimental Oculus Support: You should now be able to interact with entities in the world by clicking on them while in Oculus mode.
* Improved NPC pathing around obstacles, specifically addressing an issue with Krok and Och in the Hive chronicle.

* A number of MTX boosts displayed visually as purgeable, even though they were never actually purgeable. They now correctly appear to not be purgeable.



* Ripple: Increased the radius to 20m, up from 15m.
* Distant Shores: Now correctly increases the radius of Ripple and Monsoon.
* 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%.
* Soothing Stream: Healing from this ability no longer decays over its duration, and will now heal a consistent amount each tick.
* Dangers of the Deep:
– Stacks now also reduce the cast time of Warden abilities by 0.03/0.06/0.1s per stack.
– While out of combat, Dangers of the Deep applies 1 stack of its buff every 4s.
– Stacks now appear in their own UI element for Wardens, and no longer appear in the buff bar.


* Double your pleasure, double your fun! The Bindings of Blood Bosses now drop two Soul of the Bloodstorm each time they are defeated!
* We have updated parameters to correct an obscure bug where tank death could sometimes cause certain bosses to reset even though the raid was still alive.

* Until the next Hotfix, Lord Greenscale has a special treat for DPS warriors.

* Relic upgrades for Raid 2 store armor no longer requires Heart of the Planebreaker.
