Hotfix Feature Image

Trion is updating RIFT with RIFT 3.0 Hotfix #6 as at 7:30AM PDT on 12th November 2014 (NA) and 1:00AM GMT on 13th November 2014 (EU).


  • Autumn Harvest extended until 11:59PM on November 19th.
  • Player buffs auto-recast when mentor level changes.
  • Minions have auto-match attributes checkbox. Clicking it will make it so that when you choose an Adventure, only Minions with attribute/s that match the Adventure’s attribute/s will be shown.
  • Holy Champion, Fury of the Ascended and Anti-Planar Augmentation will now work more like they did prior to Nightmare Tide launch. It has now changed to the old version, but with one exception – cooldown is now 20 seconds longer than before so you have a larger down-time.

Fury of the Ascended Change

  • Various Soul Masteries and other changes. Warrior’s Void Knight soul received quite a few adjustments.
  • Various Plane of Water zone quest bug fixes.
  • Several Expert Dungeon drops can now be traded to group members within 30min.
  • Mount Sharax and The Rhen of Fate adjustments and bug fixes.

    Timed Focus (64 rogue mastery) got “ninja nerfed”. Vladd already said it was unintended and it will be fixed in the next patch.

      Thanks for the info Firenzee! Unfortunate for Rogues who are pushing content that have to wait till next week to get that fixed.

    I tried out Fury of the Ascended. It seems the downtime is shorter than I expected: about 7 seconds. Still a pretty long time if you have ten elite invasions on you.

      The downtime is currently affected by your PA abilities like Runic Mastery that increases the duration of temporary items. Tacitus has stated that this is unintended so with next week’s hotfix the Fury of the Ascended won’t benefit from those PA passives anymore.
