RIFT news tidbits for 22nd-23rd March 2015.


  • PTS Datamining for 23rd March 2015. Some interesting file names popped up with latest PTS Update, including ‘Class_Shapeshifter’, ‘Equip_Crossbow’ and more. Check out details here! Nothing interesting on the PTS itself.

    • Also, the previous PTS Update included a new upgrade path for lockbox-dropped weapons (perhaps gear in general as well). Thanks to squallff99/Blahh for the info! No Hit increase, and 1-handed upgrade costs 10 Abyssal Crusader’s Accelerators.
Lockbox Gear Upgrade

  • Minion Adventure Info.
    • Snedhepl reconfirmed that adventures not on cooldown are held within the adventure deck. Any that are shuffled or completed go on cooldown and won’t appear again until the cooldown is off. Only other time they re-appear is if you’ve gone through all cards in that adventure deck.
    • Jineth attracts one adventure; Archaeologist Herim attracts up to 2 adventures per deck. [r]
  • The Darkest Magic Raid Rift difficulty adjustment. Krug is looking at reducing the difficulty of The Darkest Magic raid rift and is open to suggestions. [r]
  • Notice: Twitch Compromised. Twitch had some user account information compromised recently and has asked that everyone reset their passwords and any connections they might have had through the account (Facebook, Twitter/etc). Check out more information here.

    Phew. I got scared there for a minute thinking: “Not another one!”. You wrote Twitter, but it seems that you’re referring to Twitch. 🙂
