RIFT news tidbits for 23rd-25th May 2015.

Arclight Infiltration Promo Week

The Arclight Infiltration Promo Week is back, this time with a new Necrotic Lifter mount. Event will last from 3:30PM ST on 21st May 2015 to 3:30PM ST on 28th May 2015.


  • Livestream Summary for 22nd May 2015. Trion held their latest RIFT livestream last Friday talking about Sound and Voice Acting with CM Ocho, CaptainCursor, Sound Designer Jason Clark and Environment ARtist Anthony Reis. Check out a summary of the livestream here; new Warfront Announcers incoming!
  • PTS Update for 21st-22nd May 2015. Latest two PTS Updates are 3.55GB and 683MB in size.
  • PTS-related Info:
    • Strands Cost. Vladd has indicated that Trion might increase the cost of the Strands of Draum/Arak recipes. Target is ~50p per Strand but with current AH prices it comes to about 30p each. [r]
    • 3.3 Craft Items Info. Morticus intends for the new 3.3. crafted fluff items to be fun and cheap to produce. That said, pricing/recipes aren’t final. The crafted weapon skins might be getting new textures, and the duration on the fluff consumables is subject to change and will stack to 99. [r]
    • Jeeves the Companion Pet. Jeeves, crafted by Artificers on the PTS is invisible; intended. [r]
    • Dimension Item Limits Not Final. The dimension item limits you see from the 4 new dimension keys with the latest updates is not final, and instead was copied over from other dimension keys. That 1k Tulan might not be that low, and that 5k Mathosian Cascades might not be that high when they hit Live. [r]
  • Bug: Atragarian Artifact Lures Loot Table Off. Seyler over on the RIFT forums has discovered a bug where the Rare Atragarian Artifact Attractor lure seems to attract Cape Jule artifacts instead of Draumheim or Tarken Glacier ones 70% of the time. Likely a bug, so you probably want to hold off on using the lure until it gets fixed. [r]
  • Crafting: Plans for Fish Use. Morticus has stated that Trion has plans to reduce the oversupply of Merpho and Dreamleech fish. [r] This was mentioned in the Strands of Draum/Arak thread, but might not mean that the upcoming recipes will require them.

Community Content

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

  • Rift Power Leveling 1 to 65 [Video]. WorrisomeFool has uploaded a video guide to power-leveling from Level 1 to 65 in the Dendrome’s Hive Kaaz’Gfuu. You’ll need a friend (or alt account) with a Level 65 character, but it’s a great way to level up your lower-level characters. Check it out here!
  • Rift Gameplay 2015 [Video]. ChamberDown has created a summary video of gameplay in Rift in 2015 ranging from dungeons and raids to PvP, IAs and the Wardrobe system. Check it out here!

  • Mage’s Observatory [Dimension]. Dimension Diva over at The Dimension Touring Company has stumbled upon a fantastic, Defiant-inspired dimension by Khadris@Faeblight called “Mage’s Observatory”. Come check out a preview of the dimension here!
