RIFT News Tidbits 4th November 2014

RIFT news tidbits for 4th November 2014. Check out all the info below:


  • Minions Info.
    • Minion Database. The Minion Database is now up to 107 minions added in by RIFT players. You can check it out here. Quite a lot to hunt for and there’s bound to be a ton more than that in-game. Ones we’re short on are artifact set rewarded-minion cards and the mob/rift dropped ones. Only two hidden minion cards discovered thus far as well!
    • Reshuffle Feature. A feature to re-shuffle Adventures is in the works although other Minion improvements take priority. No ETA or further details, but this will probably give you a limited ability to try for a new set of adventures outside of the daily reset. [r]
  • Mount Sharax Opens Thursday. DEV_Anony has announced the exact time that the Mount Sharax Tier 1 20-man raid will be open: Thursday at 12:00 PM PST (TC)(CD) on all US and EU shards. If the portal hasn’t changed from PTS, it should be located at /setwaypoint 4740 2222.
  • Extra Life 2014. Titles should have gone out by now and today a whole bunch of players have started receiving their fundraiser milestone reward codes via e-mail from support@extra-life.org. (gmail users be sure to check your Promotions tab).
    • Trion Worlds Team hits $98,250 raised! [r] Extra Life also reaches over $5.6mil total raised! Great job all!
    • $500 portrait codes should come in tomorrow. [r]
    • If anyone missed it, here’s RoughRaptors (DEV_SupermanSocks) getting hit by a ton of nerf darts as part of his Extra Life contest. [r] Audio starts at about 15min into the vid.
    • Below are screenshots of the Extra Life Cape, Extra Life Portrait and the super-special $500-raised Extra Life Portrait. The $500 one looks pretty sweet, especially if you only have two bars so it shows more of the wings.
Extra Life RIFT Goodies

Extra Life RIFT Goodies

  • Server Performance Improvement. Pithos has announced that Trion are making configuration changes that will go live with RIFT 3.0 Hotfix #5 this week that will provide a 50% boost to the processing power available “to the heavily loaded process types” focusing on the Plane of Water zones. [r]
  • AH Tagging Issues. There’s some issues with certain Nightmare Tide equips such as Icebreakers which might appear in one category but not the appropriate sub-category. Trion is aware of the issue and will look into it. [r]
  • Itemization Issues. You may have noticed that some bow drops are giving Cleric stats. Archonix explains that when the game tries to generate a Cleric Shield, it is instead generating a Bow. This will be fixed in next week’s hotfix. [r]
  • Nightmare Rift Data. MikeD has posted some interesting data for Nightmare Rifts and Nightmare Tide Zone Events. Check them out here – 99 is the highest stage for Rank 3s thus far; nobody has touched Rank 4 or 5 yet! Perhaps there’s no need to rush to grind The Ghar notoriety if nobody even has the gear to unlock the Rank 3 essences yet? [r]
