RIFT news tidbits for 27th 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.


  • RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #8. RIFT has been updated to 3.2 Hotfix #8. Main changes are that Strands of Draum/Arak can now be crafted by Dream Weaver/Apothecary respectively. Also, Soulrender Zilas in Hammerknell has reduced health, Vladmal Prime drops trinkets and Sicaron purge debuff damage values have been fixed. More info here.
    • Unlike the patch notes, the Strands are tradeable, not Bind on Account. [r]
  • 10-man Raid Testing. Trion is looking for guilds to volunteer to help test out the upcoming 10-man raid (assumed to be Intrepid: Gilded Prophecy). If you are interested, speak to your guild lead and have them apply here.
  • PTS Update. The PTS has been updated today. I’ll have full info up tomorrow, but for now, Red Hawk has posted up some of the changes:
    • Healing Radius Buff. Cleric Wardens and Mage Chloromancers have had multiple AoE Heal effects’ radius increased to 30m. Please provide any feedback here.
    • Tank Threat Changes. Level 40 Tank thread passives changed. Instead of generating aggro via damage, the passive will now increase the tank’s aggro multiplier based on Endurance. Any issues on PTS? Post info here.
  • About Dimension Key Additions. Captain Cursor has explained that the upcoming Mathosian Cascades dimension key is located across impassable mountains near Stillmoor. Tempest Island was originally a shallow reef off the coast of Brevane. Both are not accessible in the open world. He also mentioned Trion is working on “Sky whales“. [r]
  • Snuggles Minion Card. DmgIncGM posted up info that a minion card might drop from Snuggles (the neutral spider just prior to Captain Black Spit in Master Mode Caduceus Rise). Unconfirmed, but something to keep an eye out for if you run through the dungeon for plat each week.
  • More Craft Recipes. Vladd mentioned that he was “fairly confident” that update 3.4 will have more craft recipes to spend craft marks on. Keep stocking up on craft marks! 3.3 will also have a few dimension recipes for marks. [r]
  • PvP Info. Something is in the works for PvP, but it isn’t conquest-related. No further details provided. [r] [r]

Note: There’s no RIFT Livestream this week.
