CM Morgana has posted notification that the NA Region will be coming down for RIFT 3.0: Hotfix #2 at 3PM PDT on 24th Oct (Countdown).

Please note:

NOTE: When you click update, you will see a notice informing you that you’ll need to do a full download, but don’t panic! The good news is that this is a false alarm, and you’ll be able to update normally afterwards.

The estimated downtime duration is ** 1 hour ** — but we do hope to come in under that.

Also note that Laethys shard is back online. They are still working on Wolfsbane and Faeblight.

There was at least a 1-3hr rollback (at least for players on Laethys) from the time the servers crashed. Those who weren’t playing during the period just before servers crashed haven’t been affected.

After the RIFT 3.0 Hotfix #2 all shards should be back online. However, Daglar has announced compensation and additional bonuses/gifts for those affected. Please refer to this post here.

      It was online an hour before hotfix. Hotfix occured and the shards went down for about 55min. They’re back up again.

    If they’re back up, does that mean we click Yes? … I’ve been clicking No this whole time, their statement isn’t very clear, I assumed that meant the popup to to a full re-download would stop when it was ready?…

      Yep, click Yes. The ‘full download’ is ‘fake’. You’ll just download the hotfix.
