The One Percent

The One Percent

The One Percent

There’s a very odd bug in the latest PTS where every single NPC (both friendly and hostile) are at 1% of their max hp.

Trion is aware of the issue so hopefully it gets resolved with the next PTS update. [r]

In the mean-time, anyone for soloing NT experts/raids at Level 65? Probably still need tank gear though, but depending on their hp it could work!

Amender Cost Reductions

Amender Cost Reductions on PTS

As per Morticus’ post on the RIFT Forums, the PTS has now been updated with a whole heap of cost reductions to the top two tiers of Amenders. These are the two most expensive Amenders per profession used to upgrade the highest tiers of some crafted, dungeon and raid gear.


The following shows all the reductions to each recipe. Note that these are not the recipes themselves, just the amount they are reduced by for each material. Materials not reduced have not been included:


  • Thalasite Dream Alloy: 38 Thalasite Bar, 8 Thalasite Crystal, 28 Thalasite Ingot, 22 Dust of the Void.

*Currently on Live the Thalasite Ingot cost for Nightmare Metal Amenders is 1x instead of the old 48x. This seems to be a bug introduced with this week’s hotfix. It is 26x on PTS.

These changes are still subject to change, but they might be coming to Live as early as next week. [r] [r]

Further HK IA Changes

Tacitus has updated the PTS with some further changes to Hammerknell Instant Adventures including:

  • 8 new non-kill objectives. [r]
  • Boss fixes/adjustments.
  • Akylios encounter now works.
  • Portal will appear in main hall after you defeat Murdantix so that you can teleport to the room the IA is currently in.
  • Damage tuning. [r]


A Bag Skin

Only thing interesting from datamining is this bag skin:

Bag Skin

Bag Skin

What could it mean? Is this the player-suggested backpack wardrobe? A dimension item? Not a backpack at all but a costume piece?

Probably not an actual new bag storage skin, because bags don’t need skins, just an icon.

Perhaps it’s a new dimension storage item? Who knows.

Planetouched Wilds


An interesting filename:

  • planetouched_wilds_mount_crucible_main_01

Probably not a mount, but perhaps an important piece of architecture, or just some kind of furnace.

Some nice cost reductions to the two highest tiers of Amenders for each profession. A strange bag skin and other tidbits. Hope Trion resolves the 1% max hp issue!
