Community Content

  • Raid Videos – Multiple Perspectives. If you are interested in checking out a whole bunch of videos for the Rhen of Fate and Mount Sharax raids from multiple perspectives, check out Apotheosys’ Video page. Perspectives are mainly Cleric and Mage tank, dps and heal specs.
  • RIFT Reforged Podcast Ep. 18. Check out Episode 18 of the RIFT Reforged Podcast where they go over all the news and juicy information from the past week! Record of livestream can be found here.
  • New Event Tracker. StatFortress has a new RIFT Event Tracker that you can check out here. It has a different list-style layout compared to other Event Trackers like Matti, Aowar or RiftPluz. StatFortress’ event tracker lists elapsed time without having to hover over the zone event. Give it a shot and check out all four event trackers to find the one that suits you best!
  • Bad Santa Dimension. Check out Ralitza@Gelidra’s “Bad Santa” dimension in the latest tour by Feendish. There’s an Aussie (summer-wear) Santa Claus! Howzat?

Site Update

Just a heads up that I’ll be working on a few things over the next few weeks including:

  • Add Max Minion attributes to each minion in the Minion Database.
  • Add an Attribute Match-style table to a new tab in the Minion Database. This should hopefully make it easier to find minions with attributes that you are missing. Minions with more than 2 attributes will get assigned to all their various combinations.
  • Update Minions Guide with information on max minion attribute patterns.
  • Should be able to update the Dream Orbs Stat Sheet with Relic Tier 1 Helm/Shoulder stats by the end of the week.
