Hotfix Feature Image

Trion has updated RIFT with RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #7 as at 5/20/15 7:30 AM PDT (NA) and 5/21/15 1:00 AM GMT (EU).

Summary/Additional Info:

  • HK IA Upgrade. Level 65 gear dropped from Hammerknell Instant Adventures can now be upgraded to the same level as Expert/Crafted upgrades introduced in 3.1. Below are two examples of the new upgrades:
Vestments of Divination Upgrade

Vestments of Divination Upgrade

Ward of Certitude Upgrade

Ward of Certitude Upgrade

(oddly, the Ward of Certitude (a shield) has spell power and no Tank stats)

  • HK IA Adjustments. Various Estrode, Zilas, Vladmal Prime and Akylios boss adjustments for the HK IAs. HK IA Caches can now drop cosmetic items from the old RIFT 1.3: “Waves of Madness” world event.
  • Chronicle: Hammerknell: Runes of Corruption. Achievements are back for the HK chronicle found under Achievements (default key “h”) -> Chronicles -> Hammerknell: Runes of Corruption. You’ll have to redo them even if you’ve done them before.
  • Amender Cost Reduction. The costs of the highest two tiers of Amender recipes has been reduced.
  • Strands now Bind on Pickup. Strands of Draum and Strands of Arak are now Bind on Pickup. Any old versions you have can be converted to the new versions (for recipe purposes) by right-clicking on them.
    • You can discuss the change here.
    • Vladd has stated that they might be able to make it Bind on Account. [r]

    Late question: does the upgraded level 65 armor count for the synergy crystal? If not, it’s quite useless or are the stats that much better?

      It’s just a slightly-better-than-starter 65 gear. Not sure if it counts for synergy crystal. Probably not.
