Hotfix Feature Image

Trion has updated RIFT with RIFT 3.1 Hotfix #3 as at 2/11/15 7:30 AM PST (NA) and 2/12/15 2 AM GMT (EU). Download is approx. 140mb.


  • Guild Level Increase! Max Guild Level is now 30 – new perks including new banners that increase stats by a % instead of fixed amount. They apply directly to raid members instead of forcing you to be in range of the banners – lasts through death. Also an increased notoriety perk.
  • Various Soul Changes. Various small Mage, Rogue and Warrior changes. See below for more details.
  • Various Raid Changes. A few QoL and bug fixes to Mount Sharax, Tyrant’s Forge and the Rhen of Fate.
  • Crafting Additions. Earrings can now be crafted by Artificers by speaking to your Artificer trainer! Basic Amender recipe cost reduced and Uncle Stan’s Fising Derbies in Tempest Bay can be done by players with greater than 375 skill. There’s now also Epic and Relic Amenders + upgrade components found under most craft professions. These currently don’t have a use in-game as the upgrade paths are not yet on Live.
  • You can learn more about all the crafting changes from this hotfix, and crafting additions coming with next week’s hotfix here.
RIFT 3.1 Hot Fix #3 – 02/11/15

– They also differ by applying the buff directly to raid members instead of requiring the raid to remain within range of the banners, and do not drop an object on the ground.
– These buffs have the same duration as the banners, will last through death and follow the same stacking rules as the banners.
– They require the new Combat Sigil reagent to cast.
