NEW RAID: THE TYRANT’S FORGE!

The Tyrant’s Forge has accelerated production of all top secret weapons projects. Now players face a race against time to infiltrate and Crucia’s new monstrosities before they can be unleashed upon the world. Join together with your friends in this new 20 man raid instance to defeat the Storm Legion super soldier Johan, the deep sea war machine codenamed P.U.M.P.K.I.N, and the murderous masterpiece forged in the image of the Tyrant herself!

GENERAL

* Added text to the looking for group window stating that xp and coin will be rewarded based on dungeon difficulty.
* The Psquid Psychiatry achievement will now trigger if you are in a group.
* Guild Quest: Digging Deeper: This quest will once again give credit for collecting Twisted Artifacts.
* Fixed a bug where guild chat would occasionally vanish for an entire shard.

RIFT STORE AND SERVICES

* Patron’s Focus now applies its cooldown reduction to the Rift Consumable abilities from the new Dust, Dusk and Steam PA planes.

SOULS CLERIC

INQUISITOR
* Unified Theory: Fixed an issue where Unified Theory was awarding stacks of Echoing Concord both when the Unified Theory was applied and when it was consumed.

MAGE

NECROMANCER
* Possession: Temporary Abilities are now on the Global Cooldown. In addition to its other effects, it now reduces the Necromancer’s Global Cooldown to 1 second while active.

ROGUE

MARKSMAN
* Free Recoil: Removed VFX.

WARRIOR

LIBERATOR
* Dichotomy of Pain: Now has a 35m range by default.

REAVER
* Fixed an issue where certain abilities had their old tank role aggro multiplier.
* Desecrating Blow: Added “enemies” to the description.
* Dire Corruption: Has been fixed to no longer prevent flag captures or proc effects other than power leech. Should no longer cause Cloak of Death to break.
* Dire Step: Should now function correctly with Shadow Warp.
* Fester: The debuff now says damage instead of Death damage.
* Mind Break: Now properly says the duration is 45s instead of 30s. No longer be purgable from a target, thus allowing Spasm to hit again.
* Renamed the auto attack increase ability for Reaver to Plagued Reach. Description should now state Reaver instead of Tempest.
* Plagued Reach and Electrified Strikes (Tempest) should no longer stack to increase auto attack range to 55m.
* Pestilence: Clarified tooltip to better denote that it is a 1h long term buff.
* Stumbling Morass: Now does not snare those under immunity from movement effects.

TARKEN GLACIER
* Certain Shaghi of Ghadaul Tundra will no longer respawn instantly upon death.
* Omi is being a little more generous these days to those trying to get the “Boxed In” and/or “Thinking Out of the Box” achievements in Tarken Glacier. She is now allowing a bit more time to get the required boxes.

DUNGEONS AND INSTANCES

CHRONICLE: THE RHEN OF FATE
* Reduced the number of times the Drekanoth of Fate summons World Eaters.
* Fixed an issue that could cause Ungolok’s lockout barrier to not reset properly.

CITADEL OF INSANITY
* Corrected an obscure bug that could cause the tank to die after leaving Citadel of Insanity.

MOUNT SHARAX

* Realizing his work was done, the Invisible Man packed it up and went home, no longer asking the Ascended to work.
