Nightmare Tide-related

  • Further Minions Info. In an upcoming PTS update, Minion experience will get a small boost if your minion has at least one matching attribute to the adventure. [r]
  • Minions Database. I’ve also set-up an early version of a Minions Card Database that tracks all cards you can check out here. Might prove useful.
  • Fishing Info. You’ll need to fish in Tarken Glacier (the last zone) if you wish to reach the max level of 450 in Fishing. [r]
  • Crafting Info. Faratha has announced that there will be adjustments to the cost of Amender recipes as well as amounts of currency you get from Plane of Water crafting dailies. These will appear in an upcoming PTS update. [r]
  • Zone Event Lure Pricing. Daglar has mentioned that Trion placed the credits-only option in first for the cost of zone event lures that are now up on the PTS under RIFT Store -> Rifts -> Zone Events. He stated that they might consider adding a Void stones cost, but a planarite-only cost will not happen due to the ease to obtain planarite. [r]
  • PvP Question Answered. Daglar answers some PvP questions in relation to changes occuring for the upcoming expansion. The new Favor Infused Accelerators are used to upgrade gear that drops from Marauder Supply Caches, which are rewarded when you win a warfront. [r]
    Daglar also mentioned that he is not currently looking at changing the weekly PvP Warfront quest to be just a number of warfronts done per week. [r]
  • Citadel of Insanity Dungeon Preview Article. Trion posts a preview article on the upcoming Citadel of Insanity Dungeon, briefly mentioning each boss and the overall lore behind the dungeon. View the article here.
