RIFT News Tidbits 6th Jan 2015

General Feature Image

RIFT news tidbits for 6th Jan 2015. PvP-heavy as Daglar spent some time on the forums responding, reviewing and then implementing changes throughout the day.

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.

  • Faelight Sparkles Extended. Due to patching deadlines, the Faelight Sparkles quest is being extended for another reset week. Daglar has however warned that once the quest is removed, you will no longer be able to collect Sparkles. [r]


  • PvP-related Info:
    • Upgrade Path in Review. Trion is reviewing whether or not to add an additional upgrade path to Marauder boxes. [r] For now though, this week’s hotfix adds increased drop rate of gear from Marauder boxes, increasing it 2.5x compared to the old rate. Unknown what the old %s were. [r]
    • Lowering Current Upgrade Costs. Daglar has taken a look at current upgrade costs and has lowered some of them by 1 upgrade component each. This is an approx 20-50% decrease in cost depending on the gear in question. Will likely make it to next week’s hotfix (not this reset week). [r]
    • Increased PvP Weekly Marks. Daglar has increased raid and expert marks gained from PvP/CQ Weeklies. Fragments of Horror will increase from 100 to 300 marks. Abyssal Crusader’s Marks will increase from 500 to 650 marks. ETA on this change unknown. [r]
    • Blighted Antechamber. Flags in the Blighted Antechamber warfront will now reward 100 points instead of 50. This change is in this week’s hotfix. [r]
  • Minions-related Info:
    • Achievements Bug Fix. Bugs on the adventures-completed achievement will be fixed with this week’s hotfix.
    • Mute Option. If you dislike the minion sound effects, you can go to Settings -> Audio -> Uncheck “Accolades Enabled”. This does however disable all accolades in the game. [r]
    • Reward Rolls. Just a tidbit: There are multiple dice that are rolled on top of the attribute value to determine which reward tier your adventure is going to give. [r]

      I should have clarified it’s coming in a future patch. (probably next week).
