RIFT news tidbits for 31st October 2014. Check out all the info below:


  • Minions Info.
    • Adventures reset every 24hrs. Adventures reset every 24hrs, but the adventure only switches after login to prevent you from having the adventure you’ve just selected switch up on you. Snedhepl also notes that after you’ve done an Adventure, that particular adventure goes on ‘cooldown’ and doesn’t appear “for a decent bit of time”. [r]
    • Adventure Achievements. You currently receive achievements for adventure completion once the adventure is completed, not once you claim it. Thus if you’re on an alt when an adventure completes, that alt gets the achieve. Starting next week adventure achievements will be rewarded upon claiming the adventure. [r]
    • Autumn Harvest Adventure Achievement. Snedhepl states that if you do a single 10hr adventure each day there’s a 95% chance of getting an Autumn Harvest adventure within the 2-week span of Autumn Harvest. If you run two 10hr promo adventures each day, that chance goes up to ~99%. [r]
    • Hidden Minions. Snedhepl has stated that there will be/are hidden minions in a variety of facets of the game (not just raiding). Also, no hidden minion involves things that can’t be obtained by current players (so legacy achievements won’t generate an hidden minions). [r]
    • Auto-Filter by Attribute. Gingers has announaced that Trion will be adding a checkbox in the future so that your minions will auto-filter to the selected Adventure’s attributes. [r]
  • Autumn Harvest 2014. Autumn Harvest has begun on all shards and ends on 13th Nov 2014 at 3:30PM Server Time.
    • Artifacts. Tacitus further explains that the reason for the repeatable quests being turned into dailies is due to the sheer number of artifacts generated. [r]
    • Autumn Potions. The potions that let you see the artifacts in the Autumn Harvest instance will be boosted following next week’s hotfix, increasing their duration to 1, 2 and 3 minutes respectively. Cost on RIFT Store will also be reduced from 1 Signet to 200 Ambersap. [r]
    • Rift Quest Reduction. Starting with next week’s hotfix, the Rifts daily for Autumn Harvest will have reduced requirements from 5 to 3 Rifts. [r]
    • [Autumn Harvest Guide] [Autumn Harvest Items]
  • Downtime Compensation. Daglar has responded in the Shard Downtime thread, confirming that paying players who were affected by the previous down-time and rollback on Laethys, Wolfsbane and Faeblight were compensated 750 Credits. He also confirmed that he made the decision to release the Faeblight shard with a 25hr rollback instead of keeping the server down for several days to bring it to a later state. [r]
  • New Raid Dummies. CaptainCursor has confirmed that Trion will be adding new Raid dummies appropriate for Level 65s “soon”. No exact ETA given. [r]
  • Mount Sharax is Coming. Trion has uploaded an article that the Tier 1 20-man Mount Sharax raid is “coming soon”. There’s no actual ETA posted on the article, but last week’s livestream did state it would come out on Nov 5th. [r] [Article] [Thread]
