  • Minions System Info.
    • Aventurine Gain. Snedhepl explains that you’ll get (on average) around 2 Aventurine per 15m adventure. Longer Adventures give minimum 10 Aventurine (more based on performance and minion level). This means that each day (if you use all 5 max minion slots) you can afford a 10hr Adventure in about 5hrs with the 15min Adventures alone. [r]
    • Experience Gain. Snedhepl has announced that short adventures (1min, 5min and 15min) got a double experience boost, long adventures received a 50% exp boost whilst 10hr experience gain remains the same. There’s also a 5% Minions experience bonus for Patrons. [r]
    • Full Minion Card Preview. You can now fully preview Minion Cards on the RIFT Store. [r]
  • Cleric Inquisitor Changes. Kervik has announced that Cleric Inquisitor changes mentioned here will hit the PTS around next Monday. [r]
