Nightmare Tide-related

  • Conquest Power/Perks Removed. Daglar has reminded players that Conquest Power/Perks will be completely removed in 3.0. These bonuses will be completely removed and Conquest will “not [be] coming back in any form resembling CQ power”. [r]
  • Digital Edition can be bought multiple times. Daglar confirms that you can purchase the digital edition multiple times. [r] (In fact, I saw someone in-game with Dream Walker’s on all slots that can be upgraded to this; both dps and tank gear).
  • Daglar on Boosts in 3.0: Daglar has confirmed that there are “no plans currently to change how the vials function” for Rift Store Boosts (+% exp, notoriety/etc). [r] That said, they are changing the way Random Dungeon and Random Warfront quests are rewarded – prior to 3.0 these will no longer be placed in your reward icon stack; they will be auto-rewarded upon completion (so you can’t stack prior to 3.0). [r]
  • Daglar on Current Lockboxes – No Scaling to 65: Daglar has confirmed that the current lockboxes will not scale to the new levels (61-65). There will be new versions of the various boxes that will scale to 65. Older (current) lockboxes will be labeled “Legacy” or something similar to clearly differentiate the two. [r]
  • Planar Attunement Extension: Planar Attunement will “likely” be extended some time after 3.0 launch. [r]
  • More on Mentoring Up: 3.0 adds mentoring up, where you are able to – as the name implies – mentor up to a higher level so that you can participate in higher-level zones, dungeons and other activities. Daglar has confirmed that – whilst mentored up – you gain experience that reflects your actual level, not your mentored level. [r]
  • More on Unlimited Nightmare Black Dye: Both Daglar and Gingers have confirmed that the Unlimited Nightmare Black Dye is slightly blacker than Exceptionally Black Dye. It is – as the name implies – unlimited, with no cooldown. [r] [r] The Unlimited Nightmare Black Dye is available to those who purchase the Ultimate Nightmare Digital Edition.
  • PTS: Further Warrior Reaver Changes: Vladd has announced some preliminary changes/fixes to the Warrior Reaver soul based on the overhaul to the soul on the PTS that was added in yesterday. Details of the overhaul to Reaver from a Tank to DPS spec can be found here. Changes are as follows: [r] [r]
    • Vladd will be taking a look at the Turn the Blade/Infestation interaction.
    • Infestation is currently set to increase damage by 45% per DoT on the Reaver. This ability is currently stacking for all DoTs. This will be fixed so that it only increases damage for each Reaver DoT on the target.
    • Taking a look at the issue of power starvation in the soul. Part of the fix is the removal of the oGCD attribute for Stumbling Morass and Dire Corruption.
  • Second Porticulum in Tempest Bay: Tacitus has announced that a second porticulum that they planned on placing in Tempest Bay closer to the Craft Station area will be delayed until 3.0. [r] For those wondering why a second porticulum would be added that might become obsolete when 3.0 hits, it is because 3.0 will not have a new city hub – we will still be using Tempest Bay. Draumheim has a massive city in the middle, but it does not have the features of existing cities (like auctioneer, craft trainers/etc).

    That would have been a very bad idea,Tempest Bay would have become a ghost city,everyone would be hurrying to Draumheim.
