RIFT news tidbits for 19th May 2015.


  • Hammerknell: Instant Adventure Adjustments. HK IAs are getting some further adjustments slated for this week’s hotfix: [r]
    • Estrode has 4 different souls with different abilities that she changes at random every 20secs. With this week’s hotfix this will be changed to 60secs and she will broadcast this change.
    • Her heal will be an interruptible cast (instead of a purge).
    • Neddra’s Grasp will have reduced damage.
  • HK IA Hit Gear Adjustment. A few adjustments to Hit gear gained from HK IAs might be coming with this week’s hotifx: [r]
    • The few Boots that drop from HK IA that have Hit on them will have their Hit removed.
    • Some Gloves are missing Hit. This will be corrected.
  • About Snedhepl’s Role with ‘Primalist’. Vladd has clarified that Snedhepl is responsible for “knocking out all [the] tech requests for the new calling”. So Snedhepl is not the 5th calling’s dev and won’t be responsible for class balance; he works on the tech/coding behind the calling.
    • Right now the 5th calling is Vladd (War/Rogue) and Red Hawk’s (Mage/Cleric) shared responsibilities, but they’ve added two new members to the Rift Systems team to help out. [r]
  • Trion Hiring. Are you a Senior Gameplay Engineer? Trion is now looking for a Senior Gameplay Engineer, presumably thanks to the recent promotion of Snedhepl from Senior Gameplay Engineer to Lead Engineer! Check out the job app for their Redwood Shores (Austin, TX) office here.
