Hotfix Feature Image

Trion has updated RIFT with RIFT 3.1 Hotfix #6 as at 3/4/15 6:00 AM PST(NA) and 3/5/15 2:00 AM GMT (EU). Download is approx. 100mb.


  • Carnival of the Ascended. 
    • Guide: Carnival of the Ascended 2015. The guide has been updated accordingly with the new changes.
    • Carnival 6-star 10hr Minion Adventures. The box that drops from these 6-star adventures are now the Limited Edition: Twisted Carousel Ram instead of the Fae Yule Gift of Giving box.
    • Can Harvest over 375. Harvestables such as Ultra-thin Hides and Pumice Stones can be gained by using gathering professions with skill levels of over 375 again. This is for the “Building the Parade Floats” turn-in.
    • Auroral-to-Prize Ticket Conversion. You can now exchange 1x Auroral Doubloon for 50x Prize Tickets at the Moneychanger. Perdel in Sanctum at (7403, 3120); Rakim the Thrifty in Meridian at (6117, 5181).
    • All Level 65 Carnival essences have been upgraded from main stat +158 to +188 and CP from +177 to +210. Tank gear has also been adjusted. Note that each classes essences are the same – just with WIS/INT or STR/DEX switched around.

Carnival 2015 Essence Upgrade

  • Crafting Changes. Removed Storm Legion material requirements from Unholy Talon of Izbithu and Accursed version recipes. They now use Nightmare Tide materials.
  • Dimension Keys no longer Stack.
  • Tier 2 Guard Rating. You can now see updated % damage reduction for your Guard rating for Tier 2 raiding. These are initial values and are subject to change. (Note: You’ll need to put tank buffs on to see your Guard unless a tank in your party is nearby.)

Guard Tier 2 Initial Values

  • Guild Quest Adjustments. Manugo weekly requirement reduced from 10k to 600; Conquest weeklies reduced (Level 25+ one dropped from something like 7,500 to 2,500).
  • Various Class Changes. Changes to Cleric: Inquisitor; Mage: Archon, Dominator, Pyromancer; Rogue: Marksman.
  • Arclight Minion. Jineth’s Arclight Adventures are now permanent. Previously they were only active during Arclight Infiltration Promo Week. You can now work towards completing “Arclight Mastery” achievement found under Achievements (default key “h“) -> Promotions to get your Attractor Minion Card: Archaeologist Herim.
  • Instant Adventure Adjustments. IA boss health reduced by 60%; IA ‘kill’ adventure objective scaling reworked to be smoother as more players join the IA. More info on the scaling can be found here.
RIFT 3.1 Hot Fix #6 – 03/04/15

* Boosted the power of level 65 essences available on the World Event category of the RIFT Store!
* Minions: 6 star Carnival of the Ascended minion adventure rewards will now award a Limited Edition: Twisted Carousel Ram Trove.
* Harvestables should now drop for players with skills levels over 375.
* Auroral Doubloons can now be redeemed for Prize Tickets.

* The tooltip for Guard Rating has been updated to reflect the values required for the next tier of Raiding. Please note that this value is not set in stone, and may be adjusted later.

* Guild Quest: Playing the Numbers: The count has been reduced from 10,000 to 600.
* Guild Quests that require Conquest kills have had their counts reduced across the board.



* Bolt of Depravity: Fixed a bug causing the GCD to be reduced down to .5 seconds when under the effects of a full Life and Death Concord Stack and Spiritual Scrutiny.
– This spell now has a 1 second GCD while under either or both of these effects.


* Flaring Power: Fixed an issue where rapidly repeatedly activating this ability would trigger its cooldown without activating its effect.

* Pyromania: Has been increased from 2% per talent point up to 3% per talent point.


* Calculated Shot: Now observes Line of Sight.
* Static Shock Munitions: Effects now persist through death.
* Strafe: Reworked so that clipping the channel no longer voids the damage while the projectile is in flight.

* ZE: The Ravenous Devourerer: Fixed an issue with broadcasts spamming from this event.
* Jineth’s Arclight Lifter Adventures will now always be available so that you may earn Herim.

* Cerulean Steel has been given some asthma medication. Choreburg is now 100% less annoying.

* IA: Boss health has been reduced by 60% across all instant adventures in this zone.
* IA: Scaling of “Kill” adventures has been reworked for smoother scaling of difficulty.


* Captive Researchers will now respawn after the instance resets.

* Fixed the rare chest so that it no longer drops a Warm Nexus Warped Power Core.

* Removed the Storm Legion materials from the Unholy Talon of Izbithu and Accursed version recipes, and replaced them with Nightmare Tide specific materials to alleviate some player frustration.

* Dimension Keys no longer stack until further notice.
– Stacked keys will be separated and placed into vacant inventory slots.
