Trion is updating RIFT with RIFT 3.0 Hotfix #9 as at 7:30AM PDT on 10th December 2014 (NA) and 2:00AM GMT on 11th December 2014 (EU). 334mb patch.


  • Fae Yule World Event is Back. Starts on Thursday Dec 11th at 3:30PM Server Time. You can find an updated 2014 guide here. There’s a new ‘Faelight Sparkle’ weekly in Flargle Plaza in Draumheim. Check out full info on location and how to get the Faelight Sparkles here.
  • Conquest returns for Level 65. Access it via the Conquest tab in your PvP window (default key “k”). Don’t forget to pick up the two Conquest-related weeklies in Flargle Plaza in Draumheim. The Conquest Chest rewards 65 currency as well as rare chance at Heart of the Frozen (Tier 1 raid upgrade piece; also used to upgrade high-end essences).
  • Underwater Mount Training Added. Now in RIFT Store -> Services for 1,500 Credits (1,350 for Patrons). Turns your Land Mount into an Amphibious Mount so it can be used in water. Check the tooltip for which mounts it applies to.
  • Weekly Patron Currency Cap. Patrons have higher weekly cap:
    • Void Stones – 42,000 vs 35,000;
    • Abyssal Crusader’s Marks – 15,000 vs 12,500;
    • Fragments of Horror – 5,400 vs 4,500.
  • Various Class Changes/fixes for Clerics, Mages, Rogues and Warriors.
  • Sourcestone Change. Inscribed, Corrupted, Cursed and Vile Sourcestones are now just Sourcestones with appropriate conversions for non-Inscribed in a future update.
  • IA Rewards. Various rare rewards (like mounts) now appear in Instant Adventure Caches from every zone instead of zone-specific drops like they used to.
  • Nightmare Rifts. A whole bunch of stuff previously mentioned in News Tidbits are now up including some fixes, NMR tooltips on map listing rank/stage; more Planarite from NMRs; Reduced price of Lure: Nightmare V Instance Duo.
  • Sea of Ladon Raid Rift adjustments and fixes.
  • Expert Dungeon Changes. Trash mobs hit 20% less; Bosses auto attack less frequently (it’s actually a hard-hitting ‘ability’) and a few bug fixes to various dungeons.
  • PvP and Warfront Changes.
    • Guild Quests adjusted to level 65.
    • Weekend Port Scion should now count towards Level 65 Guns for Hire weekly.
    • Adjusted effectiveness of Dodge (no info on actual amount).
    • Increased healing penalty for PvP at Level 65 from 75% to 77.5%.
    • Old PvP currencies have been converted to platinum at a 1 Platinum per 100 Marks conversion rate.
    • Every 100 Kills in Conquest earns you 1 Void Stone. This will be bumped to 10 Void Stones next week.
