RIFT news tidbits for 16-18th Jan 2015.

Promo Week

The Arclight Ascendancy Promo Week is up until Thursday 22nd January 2015 at 3:30PM Server. Complete racing and collection dailies, collect event currency and get your Arclight Rider Mount!

The lockbox version of the Arclight Rider Mount is 155% mount speed + Amphibious.


  • PTS Update + Datamining 15-16th Jan 2015. NMR5 Store Essences get an upgrade cost reduction and stat adjustment. There’s also further Nightblade and Reaver changes; several new zone events, bank vault dimension item and more! Check out full information here.
  • Transcendent Chest Upgrade. There’s a new upgrade path for Relic Tier 1 Store gear on the PTS, upgrading the Relic Frost Horror Chest to Transcendent (Red) Frozen Mechanized Chest. Check out full stats/information here.
  • Arclight Rider Mount Sound. The sound effects for the Arclight Rider Mount should be available with the next hotfix. Get ready for a chorus of vroom vrooms and beep beeps. [r]
  • Arclight Rider Mount Speed. The Arclight Rider Mount that comes out of the Trove/lockbox should be 155% mount speed. This will be fixed with the next hotfix. [r]
  • Minion Stamina Display Fix. Currently the amount of Minion Stamina for your minions can be affected by your computer’s clock; even getting negative stamina. With the next hotfix this will be fixed. Note that this was just a display issue and didn’t affect your ability to send your minions on adventures (so no, you can’t make your clock the year 3000 and get infinite stamina :P). [r]
  • Inquisitor Bolt of Depravity Fix. Kervik is looking to fix Inquisitor’s Bolt of Depravity so that it doesn’t occasionally hard-cast even with Unified Theory up. (This might also mean no more double-BoD). Potential fix should be up with the next PTS Update. [r]
  • Mage Changes Information. Kervik has announced that the Necromancer Changes on the PTS “should” hit Live with Patch 3.1: Storm at Sea. Further changes may be planned later. He’s also going taking a look at Harbinger suggestions on the Mage Sub-forums and look at what he can do with those. [r]

Community Content

Below is a list of content created recently by the RIFT community!

  • Nightmare Tide Loot Table by FDWTS. I’ve mentioned the site before, but Fighting Dragons With Taylor Swift’s ‘Nightmare Tide Loot Table’ has been given a major overhaul. It now has gear slot tabs on the left, Stat Weights and a lot more loot beyond Expert/Raid gear, such as PvP Dreambreaker gear, lockbox gear and general gear drops.
    Check out the site here and pick your class, role and language from the top-right hand corner of the site; gear slot from the left nav bar and type out your spec’s stat weights at the top.
  • Art Because I Say it is! [Dimension]. Feendish takes a tour of a unique dimension by Khai@Zaviel called “Art Because I Say It Is!” which focuses on various artwork; even a little “Planksy” graffiti, a possible play on Banksy and Khai’s use of planks in place of paint. There’s also an art studio, various crafts and a Game of Thrones parody throne. Check it out here!
  • Warlock Mage PvP Guide by Grim [Video]. Grim has posted up a Mage Warlock PvP guide with macros included in the comments. He’s also holding a Typhoon Edition Pack giveaway – simply comment in his video with your charname@shardname to enter. Check it out here!

    FDWTS’s loot tables look fine, but they lack some items usable by either classes. For instance, earrings, rings and necklaces.
    These tables mention no rings found in expert for a mage tank as they both have more wisdom than intelligence (Band of Ice and Spirit of the Ironwood).
