RIFT news tidbits for 21st April 2015.


  • Sale: 2 Day Tuesday Amazon Deals. Amazon has a one (or 2)-day deal with 30-50% off RIFT Packs. There’s some amazing deals, like $75 for RIFT Laethys’ Fortune Pack which includes 90-day patron, Storm + Dream Souls and a lot more. More info here.
  • PTS Playtest: Hammerknell IAs. Tacitus is holding a PTS Playtest for HK IAs from 2:30-5:30PM PDT (with a 1hr gap in-between) on Wednesday, 22nd April 2015 (TC). Click here for the feedback thread.
  • Upcoming NT Onslaught Changes. Kerilar posted up some changes for NT Onslaughts that should hit Live either with this week or next week’s hotfix. [r]
    • Significant decrease in HP on initial enemy guards/turrets.
    • Active onslaught time lowered from 15min to 7min. (So onslaughts should finish faster).
    • Increased no. of invasions that spawn at once.
    • Increase invasion and commander HP.
    • The cooldown between active Onslaughts has been lowered from 15min to 10min.
    • Map Marker added for active Onslaught location. (Must be in zone to see it).
    • Note: The one-commander-per-onslaught feature remains. This is intended. [r]
  • The Whiteboard. We’ve got ourselves another whiteboard, this time by CaptainCursor. Of course, CaptainCursor is known for trolling so perhaps nothing on the board is actually planned. Still, it’s been a long time since the last one, so check it out anyway:

    • Most likely just a troll post. Check out the post here.
  • Return to Hammerknell WFs. Congratulations to Apotheosys for getting World First Vladmal Prime, Grugonim, Inquisitor Garua and Inwar Darktide. Only one encounter left: ‘Lord Jornaru and Akylios’, and it hasn’t even been an entire week since the raid was released! More info here.
  • Other Tidbits:
    • The Pit Fighter ‘Tank Dook’ NPC in Scarwood Reach (for energy pots) has been temporarily disabled due to an exploit. No ETA on fix. [r]
    • The Barber Shop preview uses a random assortment of appearances, not your current wardrobe. This is a known issue. No ETA on fix. [r]

Community Content

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

  • Pvepyro – The Dome [Dimension]. Seyler over at DTC takes a tour of Pyrogue@Typhiria’s “Pvepyro – The Dome” dimension. A very fascinating dimension with housing, a garden and strawmen inhabiting the place. Check out a preview here!
  • (._.) ( l: ) ( .-. ) ( :l ) (._.) [PvP][Video]. SirSpaceboots sings along to his own Codex-based Warfront song in his latest PvP video. (Warning: NSFW language). Check it out here and sing along!

    Akylios is Disabled.

    Currently Apotheosys cannot progress on Akylios because DEV_Anony has disabled the encounter as of yesterday night.

    The Platforms are broken for at least half the players (players either fall through or they cannot see them) and the Hit reduction debuff can be removed by jumping into the water or killing each other in a duel.

    Unfortunatelly, Apotheosys is being forcefully locked again from progressing, killing and claiming a WF on the last boss of a Tier – same thing that happened during the guild’s Threngar progression in Tier-1.

    Hopefully Anony will be able to resolve those issues within this week.
    Until then.. Gratz Apotheosys for World First 10/10

      Oh wow, that sucks. Hope Anony fixes it up asap. Very quick tier if it’s the only raid for this tier.
