RIFT news tidbits for 2nd Feb 2015.


  • Iron Tomb Bonus Loot. At last boss, have players stack on the blocked cave up the ramp in the final boss’ encounter area. Boss will target random player, drop red AoE and the red AoE will open the passageway. Go in and /cry to spawn the bonus loot chest. (Thanks to Kapnia for the info!)
  • Raptr Hacked; Change Password. Just a notice to anyone who uses Raptr (program that tracks played time in games) that it was hacked recently. Raptr Founder and CEO Dennis Fong has asked users to change their passwords, especially if you use the same password across multiple online accounts. [r]
  • Threngar Pull. Anony has explained that the pull mechanic (where some players get teleported to the blue circle on phase transition) is intended. It originally wasn’t working properly on some shard instances, but it is intended and not a bug. [r]
  • Notoriety Turn-in for Sanctum/Meridian. Tacitus has announced that a Mark of Notoriety turn-in NPC will appear next to the IA NPCs in Sanctum and Meridian. [r] Although he didn’t provide any details, from the way the thread was going, it sounds like this new Marks of Notoriety turn-in NPC will allow you to turn in Marks of Notoriety for old world pre-SL notoriety.
  • Loot Options Menu Issues. Some players are finding that they can’t change their loot options from Need vs Greed in a group. A fix is on its way, but for now a temporary fix is to go to ESC -> Settings -> Interface -> Display and uncheck “Show additional player portrait frames & icons”. [r]
  • Warrior Bug Fixes. A few Warrior (Reaver) bug fixes or info from Vladd: [r]
    • Deliberate Strikes debuff has a 1sec internal cool-down. This is intended.
    • Dire Corruption will be fixed so that it does not function like pre-fix Necrotic Core.
    • Dichotomy of Pain will have its ranged increased to match all other Reaver abilities.
    • Vladd is looking into a fix for Fester so it properly applies to up to 8 targets.
  • Rogue Bug Fixes. [r]
    • Stumbling Morass will no longer bypass immunity to snares provided by Getaway.
    • Vladd will take a look at the stacking priority of support buffs.
