RIFT news tidbits for 8th May 2015.

Razorback Roundup Promo Week

The Razorback Roundup Promo Week introduces the new Razorback mount and adds two new achievements and three dailies to complete.

General

  • HK IA Info. Certain bosses are overtuned: [r]
    • Akylios has been disabled for now because IA groups just couldn’t get past him.
    • Zilas requires some tuning, so does Estrode and Vladmal Prime’s AoE ability should be 20m radius, not 200m.
  • Background Music Bug Persists. The bug where you continue to hear RIFT music/game sounds even when the program is the in background still remains. It seems to occur when you use alt+tab instead of the minimize button. [r] A fix should be in next week’s hotfix. [r]
  • About Razorback Roundup. [r]
    • It is intentional that the Truffle Hunters aggro other mobs. You will need to kill the other mobs to get the Truffle Hunters back on its path.
    • The 400-boar achievement requires that you kill (not capture) 400 Truffle Hunters and 1 Enraged Boar.
    • A fix should be available ‘soon’ for the quest item (lasso) that disappears from quest stickies when you shard-hop. In the mean-time, you should be able to find the quest item in your Quest Log window (default key “L“)
    • About Leaf Piles: There are 40 spawn points and always at least 10 of them up at any given time. Kerilar will take a look at this and see if the spawns need adjusting.
    • It is intentional that the Truffle Hunters only last 4min so that you can’t use it as a free combat pet.
  • Crafting: Phenomenal Recipes Change. Morticus has stated that ‘very soon’ the Phenomenal apothecary recipes will be changing so that each recipe generates 3x pots, but will now cost 2x as much. [r]
    • Results in a cost reduction of 33%, or increased output of 66%.
    • No exact ETA, just ‘very soon’. However, these changes usually don’t occur outside of a hotfix, so the earliest we’ll see this change is likely next week’s hotfix.
  • Break Into the Industry. Trion had their Friday livestream on the topic of getting into the gaming industry. You can check out the recorded video here.

    About Razorback Roundup. [r]
    It is intentional that the Truffle Hunters aggro other mobs. You will need to kill the other mobs to get the Truffle Hunters back on its path.
    The 400-boar achievement requires that you kill (not capture) 400 Truffle Hunters and 1 Enraged Boar.
    ~~~The achievement does not track the 400 kills if you have it checked to follow it on your quest tracker.
    A fix should be available ‘soon’ for the quest item (lasso) that disappears from quest stickies when you shard-hop. In the mean-time, you should be able to find the quest item in your Quest Log window (default key “L“)
    About Leaf Piles: There are 40 spawn points and always at least 10 of them up at any given time. Kerilar will take a look at this and see if the spawns need adjusting.
    ~~~I only ever saw the same 2 and needed to shard hop the third instead of waiting on a respawn
    It is intentional that the Truffle Hunters only last 4min so that you can’t use it as a free combat pet.
    ~~~Ahh and hes so much cooler then my normal pig. (I do miss capturing my pets in WoW) They really do need to make more skins available for your combat pets, a lost revenue stream TRION…) Seeing I missed the Hellbug skins.

      The quest tracker is something Trion needs to look at. I personally haven’t used achievement tracking at all since it came out. As for combat pet skins, they do have Rodney & Monty…although it’s been quite a while since they were revealed (like more than a year I think). Not sure where Vladd’s at with that. Maybe they’ve been changed to become one of the Primalist souls’ combat pets?
