RIFT News Tidbits 26-28th September 2014

General Feature Image

A few tidbits of information for RIFT for 26-28th September 2014. Check them out below:


  • Livestream Summary 26th Sept 2014. Trion showed off the Draumheim zone for their 26th Sept 2014 Livestream. Some screenshots and information can be found here.
  • PTS Update 26th Sept 2014. Small ~139MB update with more Masteries changes, Minions UI changes, achievements and two new raid rifts. More info can be found here.
  • Fluffinator back up on PTS. Fluffinator NPC is back in front of Sanctum and Meridian Porticulums on the PTS. He sells the Instant Level 60 Boost Bundle for 1 silver. So if you want to test out that Instant Level 60 Boost Bundle that the Infusion and Ultimate Nightmare Digital Edition Packs come with, now’s your chance! Not able to get on the PTS or just want the info now? Check out RiftGrate’s article about what’s inside the bundle here. Fluffinator will be up until next server restart. [r]

Nightmare Tide-related

  • Nightmare Rifts available to all. Nightmare Rifts Rank I and II are now available to all players on the PTS. You can buy lures from the NPCs at the side of the Wreck of the Endeavor here in-between Silverwood and Freemarch. Test it out and give feedback here. I’ve also got a guide up for Nightmare Rifts that you can check out here.
  • Minions UI Information. A bit more Minions UI information was released.
    • The Digital Edition packs that provide an additional Minions Slot does not allow you to have a higher minion slot cap than other players. It simply gives you an additional minions slot. Minions slots gets more expensive the more you have. In this way, the additional Minions Slot you get with the Digital Edition packs is “essentially buying the most expensive slot”. [r]
    • Bloop Minion Card from Digitial Edition packs contains the following attributes: Water & Diplomacy (Notoriety). It also has more stamina than common-rarity minions of the same level. [r]
    • Max Minion Level is 25, but your minions will continue to gain experience past the max level so if Trion decides to raise the level cap, your minions will already have experience gained towards the higher cap. [r]
    • Aventurines – Snedhepl reiterated that Aventurines (without the ‘d’) can be used to pay for the 10hr adventure fee or to hurry adventures. [r] Aventurines are gained from sending minions on adventures and through special consumable items.
    • Filtering – There are plans down the line to allow filtering so that you can choose which minions appear in the adventure’s tab. [r]

Community Content

Below is a list of content created recently by the RIFT community!

  • Rift Event Tracker by Aowar. A new zone event tracker has been set up by Aowar@Brisesol. It is similar to Matti@Brutwacht’s Rift Event Tracker with a few quality-of-life differences. First, you can choose to hide Mathosia or Storm Legion continents, and secondly, the table is collapsible (in terms of width) so you can display it in a smaller section of your screen. Check out Aowar@Brisesol’s Rift Event Tracker here.
