  • NPCs Disabled Temporarily on PTS. SupermanSocks has announced that most NPCs are disabled on the PTS for testing purposes. You also won’t be able to go to Mathosia/Storm Legion continents. [r]
  • New Minion: Keavy. A new Minion Card called “Keavy” has popped up in the discovery logs. Rarity: Uncommon. No information on attributes or how to obtain it. (Thanks to Gordi@Zaviel for the info!)
  • Onslaught Quests in Tempest Bay. Krug has announced that in the patch after next, the Nightmare Tide questgivers in Tempest Bay will include the Onslaught Dailies/Weeklies. [r]

Crafting Rifts and Special Gear Teaser!

Morticus has provided another teaser for RIFT 3.3 with what looks to be a Weekly Quest for craft professions to obtain Planar-based Crafting Rift Lures.

He also showed off a recipe for a Helm “Destroyer’s charged Barbute” that has a new set gear bonus “Electrocution (0/2): You are filled with the power of the planes! Increases Attack Power by 250”.

Crafting Weekly Crafting Rift Lures 3.3

The element-based Crafting Rift Lures might be where you’ll be able to obtain those Planar-based fishing rods datamined previously!

These aren’t up on PTS yet because all open world NPCs (excl. Tempest Bay) have been removed temporarily so there’s no way to check if this “Tephael the Usurper” has the quest/s available or not.

Destroyer's Charged Barbute Crafted Item 3.3

Interestingly the “Destroyer’s Charged Barbute” shown has at least one upgrade and provides a set bonus that increases your Attack Power by 250!

The ‘relic’ craft components such as “Imperishable Wind” will drop from the new Crafting Rifts. However, Morticus mentioned there are other ways to obtain them (no details though). [r]

Note that the screenshot shows the Helmet without Hit. This is a bug and the gear will have Hit by the time 3.3 hits. [r]
