  • Essence Upgrade. Josh York has upgraded the top tier of Essences found on the RIFT Store (NMR5-unlocked Rift Store essences) so that their upgrades have better stats. He has also reduced the price to upgrade “substantially”. No ETA or further details. [r] Might want to warn any of your friends who are thinking of upgrading an NMR5 Rift Store essence that an upgrade cost reduction is coming.
  • Cleric Crafted Ring END Upgrade. Josh York has added additional endurance to the upgraded Cleric Crafted Ring (Thalcrystal Ringlet) so that you don’t lose endurance between the Detailed and Exquisite (upgrade) rings. No ETA. [r]
