RIFT news tidbits for 8th December 2014. Check out all the info below:

General

  • World First Threngar/Mount Sharax! Congratulations to Apotheosys (EU; Typhiria) for being the first guild to take down the final boss in Mount Sharax, Threngar! Launched on 6th November 2014, it has taken just over a month for the first Tier 1 20-man Raid for Nightmare Tide to be taken down.
    • Check out their kill thread here which includes loot info here.
    • You can also check out current guild standings and kill videos for Mount Sharax here.
  • Minions Info:
    • Dimension Boxes #1. Firstly, the 5min/15min Dimension adventures will have rewards placed into boxes just like the 8hr/10hr adventures. [r]
    • Dimension Boxes #2. Secondly, Attanium Crystals will be separated from the box so that the Dimension Boxes only contain dimension items. Thus those not interested in dimensions don’t have to open the boxes and can just sell the boxes instead of individual items. [r]
    • Dimension Boxes #3. Thirdly, Snedhepl will check out whether it will be possible to allow these boxes to have a small vendor price based on rank/stars. [r]
    • Tooltip Update. Snedhepl will add a tooltip in RIFT 3.1 so players know you can earn Aventurine when you take your minions on the non-1min adventures. [r]
  • Upcoming Planar Essence Unsocketing Change. Pithos has announced that with this week’s hotfix, the Bind on Equip essences in your planar focus will no longer remain Bind on Equip when you remove them. Instead, they’ll become Bind on Pickup like they are originally supposed to. [r]

Community Content

Below is a list of content created recently by the RIFT community!

  • “From the Inside Out” Dimensions. Feendish goes over some tips and ideas for taking a different approach to dimension building; with low item limits, have you considered creating an interior-only dimension? Check out her article here!
  • The Dimension Touring Company Celebrates 1 year Anniversary! Feendish and DimensionDiva alongside some guest posters celebrate a full year of their dimension touring blog. These folks have been posting at least one inspiring article a day throughout the year and have held some major dimension contests throughout that time. Check out their post here and I look forward to more from DTC in the years to come!
  • Turning in Nightmare Rifts Tip. MickNico on the RIFT Forums has posted a nice tip for anyone looking to make it easier to turn away during look-away shielding mechanics in Nightmare Rifts (which also helps for general boss mechanics). What to do? Enlarge your Notification Messages text box and place it in an area that catches your attention. Details can be found here.
  • 61 Arbiter Mage Tank Guide [Video]. Intim has uploaded a video guide to a Mage tank spec, 61 Arbiter. Check it out here!

    This should NOT happen as it will be a bot paradise worse then it was with fishing.
    Botters will be able to log into freebie accounts all day long and harvest dimension boxes for gold and sell it. It ruined fishing and this is turn will ruin minions in Rift.
    I used to be able to fish in down time and make some plat in the chests before the botters ruined that.

    I can see where there are coming from in this, but why would I want to unsocket one besides wanting to send to an alt or vendor it. If its mine forever just overwrite it.

      to make you buy an unsocketing thingy.

      Outside of the Bind on Equip bug and the rare instance you decide to send a BoA essence to your alts, the other instance where unsockets are demanded would be when a new tier of planar focus comes out and you want to transfer all your essences to that focus.
