RIFT news tidbits for 14-15th Feb 2015. Weekend community-packed special!


  • PTS Update 13th February 2015. Latest PTS Update adds all upcoming crafted Trinkets for public feedback. A new upgrade tier for Experts is now available as well, bringing the stats closer to Dreambreaker gear. Full upgrade previews and stat comparisons can be found here.
  • PTS Datamining 13th February 2015. On the datamining side of the latest PTS Update, several Carnival of the Ascended 2015 models/skins have been revealed including new Masks, an alternate version of the Wind-Up Pony companion pet, new weapons and a new Arclight Rider Mount with ‘Hot Rod’ decal. Check them out here.
  • About Crafting Additions:
    • The new craft trinkets up on the PTS are not final. Procs are not final. Adjustments can be made prior to them appearing on Live with the next hotfix. [r]
    • Some Level 62 Earring recipes are ‘white’ quality, meaning you aren’t able to level up your crafting with them at the appropriate crafting level. This is being investigated this Monday. [r]
    • Augments are no longer supported, which is why pre-NT earrings don’t have augments. [r]
    • Some earring recipes are listed in an odd fashion, with low-level earrings sometimes appearing above higher-level earrings in your craft window. This is being investigated. [r]

Community Content

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

  • Houses Part 1 – RIFT Dimension Showcase [Video][Dimension]. Nouvae over at The Dimension Gallery has started a dimension video series where she previews several dimensions in each video. Check out some amazing dimensions here and get inspired!
  • The Dimension Touring Co. 14th Feb 2015 [Video][Dimension]. The folks over at DTC (Feendish, Dimension Diva) talks all things dimension in their latest livestream from dimension-related news and the latest contests to a tour of various dimensions. The recorded video can be found here and starts at approx. 8min 54secs into the video.
  • “You should be ashamed!” [Dimension]. Dimension Diva has been hard at work building up an amazing prison-style dimension filled with interesting PvP flag-based teleports to different locations of the building. Check it out on Wolfsbane (NA): “You should be ashamed!” dimension. Screenshots preview here. DTC’s recent livestream (video here) also goes through this dimension for those looking for a video tour.
  • Factions [Dimension]. The Dimension Gallery has several screenshots of Azrough@Laethys’ “Factions” dimension. Set in the Anywhere dimension, it showcases Azrough’s interpretation of different factions in the game, including an interesting Water-based locale. Check it out here!
  • Essence Reference List [Spreadsheet]. Scanna@Gelidra has created an informative spreadsheet listing most non-PvP, Lockbox or NMR-dropped Greater and Lesser Essences. This is useful for comparison purposes so you can see how good your current essences are compared to other existing combinations. Check it out here and click on the tabs at the bottom to see the data!
  • Rift Lifter Mount Video Preview [Video]. Slipmat over on the RIFT Forums has posted the promo videos for the new Arclight/Storm Legion Lifter Mounts coming this Thursday. Check out the video here. He also posted the in-game preview here.
    • These come from Friday’s livestream. You can find a summary of the livestream here.
  • Minion Trainer [Addon]. Nialscorva has created a ‘Minion Trainer’ Addon for RIFT. This addon allows you to claim finished adventures and automatically send appropriate minions on adventures by hovering over a button and scrolling your mouse wheel over it. There’s a few bugs here and there, but the latest version (v1.1.1) has worked out most of the kinks. Click here to download and read further instructions/commands.

    I’m glad they’re going back to the direct purchase alt versions for mounts. Options for everyone, and even more money for them. Should be a win, win.
