RIFT news tidbits for 13-15th December 2014. Check out all the info below:

Fae Yule World Event

The Fae Yule World Event started on 11th Dec and will end on 8th January at 3:30PM Server Time.

News related to Fae Yule

  • 10hr Promo Refund Bug. If you received a refund in Aventurine/Credits for doing the 10hr Fae Yule Promo Minion Adventure/s and have had issues with your minions since the refund, this bug should now be fixed. If you are still having issues, try relogging. [r]
  • Adventure Pack First Story. The first story adventure for those who have bought the 2014 Fae Yule Minion Adventure Pack requires the Rudy minion that you get automatically from the pack. The rest do not. [r]
  • Adventure Pack No Repeats. You can only do each story adventure once. The 18th that you unlock after completing the rest is a repeatable 1min adventure. Snedhepl is looking to add the tech for repeating storyline-type adventures in the future. He has some plans for it in Patch 3.1, although no details [perhaps Carnival or special Tyrant’s Throne storyline adventures?]. [r]
  • Lost Traveler Bug. Some of you may have encountered a bug where you can’t see Lost Travelers or don’t have the quest item. The reason has been found – completing the snowball fight ends up removing your candle quest item for Lost Travelers. A fix will be in for this week’s hotfix, but for now – either hold off on doing the snowball fight until after you complete the Lost Traveler quest, or just pick up the Lost Traveler quest after finishing the snowball fight quest. [r]
  • Daily Rift Fix. The quest ‘Rift Closed!’ that you occasionally get in Silverwood/Freemarch/Tempest Bay currently has a bug where it is not counting Nightmare Rifts. This will be fixed with this week’s hotfix. [r]

Adventure Pack Progression Information

Siddar on the RIFT forums has posted the progression order of the Fae Yule minion adventures and which adventure deck they are hidden behind.

  1. 1 min
  2. 1 min
  3. 8 hr
  4. 5/15 min
  5. 8 hr – reward: Atrophinus life/assa

  16. 8hr reward: Great father frost (epic) life/dip/harvest/arti
  17. 5/15 min
  18. 1min (This is the only repeatable adventure.)

The first 17 are once-only with the 1st adventure requiring the Minion Card: Rudy that you get in the pack. The 18th one is a repeatable.

Thanks to Siddar for the information!

Golden Devourer Hint

DEV_Anony has provided a hint about the Golden Devourer:

Greetings,

The Golden Devourer is a mystery. The Golden Mark is the key. Only when this radiant light illuminates the shadows of the beast’s lair shall The Golden Devourer emerge for all to see.

Happy Hunting,
Anony

Checked the two ‘caves’ at the bottom of Greenscale’s Crater in the Dendrome where Senbora the Devourer spawns but there wasn’t anything there. Could be possible that you need to kill Senbora before the Golden Mark appears to summon the Golden Devourer.

I’ve also seen Senbora spawned but no light or Golden Mark nearby.

Anyone seen this special Fae Yule open world raid boss yet?

Fae Yule Portrait

Ever wanted to see what the Fae Yule Portrait’s animation actually looks like?

Trion has posted up a short video of the portrait you can check out on their twitter here.

  • Subscribe to RIFT for Gift. CM Ocho has made an announcement about subscribing to the RIFT newsletter/promotionals for a possible ‘gift’. He has done this several times in the past where Credits, Lockboxes or Dimension Item codes have been sent to players via e-mail. Check out this article here if you are unsure how to subscribe. Announcement was today and CM Ocho usually gives a few days before sending out the e-mails. [r]
  • PTS Update 15th Dec 2014. Main change was the introduction of a new Raid Rift: “The Darkest Magic” for Draumheim which you can access via RIFT Store -> Rifts -> Raid Rifts on the Public Test Shard. Bulk of the ~700mb download was simply updating the PTS version of RIFT to the Live client.
    The Darkest Magic Raid Rift Lure
  • Upcoming Mage Class Changes. Kervik has announced some changes coming for Mages in this week’s hotfix as follows: [r]
    • Fix: Haunting Pain stacks count as cast time (instead of instant).
    • Reflective Presence and Putrify are now off GCD.
    • CD on Possession reduced to 1min and duration to 15s.
    • Possession abilities now appear on the temp (reactive) ability bar instead of replacing your actual ability bars.
  • On Forum Spam. CM Ocho has responded again to complaints about forum spam during NA off-peak hours. Trion has an engineer working on the backend to close up this issue. [r]

    ” The Golden Mark is the key. Only when this radiant light illuminates the shadows of the beast’s lair shall The Golden Devourer emerge for all to see.”

    First thing that comes to my mind is Laethys. The second sentence sounds like you eighter have to use an item or you have to wait for a specific time (“radiant light illuminates” – Maybe Christmas? Maybe New Year’s Eve?).
