RIFT news tidbits for 4th Feb 2015.


  • RIFT 3.1 Hotfix #2. The latest hotfix opens up the new Tier 1 20-man raid Tyrant’s Forge at (6588, 9104) on Tyrant’s Throne. There’s also a few bug fixes, especially for Reaver. Check out the full notes here.
  • Hidden Minion Card. We’re on the trail of a new hidden minion card. A new 6-part linked, 6-part unlinked adventure chain has popped up in the 5min/15min adventure deck. What we know thus far:
    • Starts with “Una Tells You a Rumor” in the 5min/15min adventure deck. All the adventures in this chain are found in this deck.
    • The adventures all have a difficulty rating of 3, which either means you need at least a value of 3 in each of the required attributes, or it decreases your attribute score by 3 when rolling for star ratings.
    • Other than the first adventure, all the others have requirements like to use a specific minion, a minimum level requirement or a specific attribute.
    • Current speculation is that the unlinked adventures give clues as to where you can find 6 different minion cards.
    • More information and on-going speculation can be found in the Minion Card Database thread.

  • “Darkness from the Depth” Zone Event Explained. Kerilar explains that the new zone event in Tarken Glacier, “Darkness from the Depth” involves collecting Dream Shards dropped by Nightmare invasions and taking them to the Dream Machines marked on the map. [r]
    • Speak to Erisha on the map at the defend points and you can choose to get either a Nightmare or Dream buff.
    • The Nightmare buff allows you to see and kill Nightmare invasions. Nightmare invasions drop Dream Shards.
    • The Dream buff allows you to see the Dream Shards, but you cannot see the Nightmare invasions.
    • Collect Dream Shards and run them over the Dream Machines at the center of the zone event area. Once enough are collected, the boss “The Abhorrence” will break free and you can dps him down.
  • Frequent Shard Crashes. Since the latest hotfix some players have been experiencing frequent shard crashes. [r] This should be fixed with the RIFT 3.1 Hotfix #2.5, which simply requires you relaunch the game and update (no down-time for this update). [r]
  • Dire Corruption Bug. There’s a bug right now where Dire Corruption is only dealing the first and last 3 ticks of damage. This will be fixed in the next hotfix. Precision Strikes will also work with Dire Corruption. [r]
  • Ice Zerker Proc Bug. Ice Zerker item proc is supposed to increase the duration of procs for each Nightmare Tide proc-based item you have equipped. This is currently not working as intended and a fix will hopefully come in for next hotfix. [r]
