  • Glyph Updated. Glyph had a small update on the 29th, perhaps to add the Shadow Puppeteer game or something in relation to ArcheAge. [r]
  • Lore Writer Info. Looking to become a lore writer in the gaming industry? You’ll probably need technical expertise as well in creating in-game content. Check out Tacitus’ response to a player about becoming a lore writer. [r]
  • Mobile App Loot Fixed. Loot from the scratchies have been fixed so they should be sending you the correct loot. [r]
  • No Credits on Discount. Daglar reiterated that “RIFT does not put credits on a discount”. RIFT Store items can go on discount every now and then though (for Credits price). [r]

Nightmare Tide-related

  • Nightmare Tide Open Beta. The PTS is now in Open Beta for the Nightmare Tide expansion. You can start your journey to the Plane of Water by speaking to any Porticulum Master and clicking on the ‘Plane of Water’ section. You can check out where to go for major locations including Savant Trainers and the new 3.0 city hub, Margle Palace, here.
  • Exploring Tarken Glacier Article. Trion have posted a new article about Tarken Glacier called “At the Frozen Edge of the Cosmos”. They briefly touch over multiple locations in the frozen zone. Check it out here.
  • Trion Livestream: 3.0 Q&A. Trion will hold a Nightmare Tide Q&A with Daglar and Dead Simon on 1st October at 1:30PM PDT (TC) (CD). Come check it out at that time on their twitch channel here.
  • Augments no longer used in 3.0. Augments will no longer be useful in 3.0. Sure you can use it on the first piece of 3.0 crafting gear, but due to the new ‘Amender’ upgrade system, augments won’t carry over. Thus their use is very brief. Daglar did state however that there “may be additional ways to modify your items in the future”. [r]
  • Revamp of Instant Adventures. Tacitus has announced that he is hoping to put in large changes to Instant Adventures, including to address the issue of disparity in experience gain between old world and new. [r]
  • Nightmare Rifts being adjusted. Low-level Nightmare Rifts weren’t doing enough damage. Going from Stage 42-ish to Stage 328 as top weekly Stage reached right after the release of low-level NM Rifts. [r]
