  • Article: Nightmare Saga Preview. Trion has added a new article with a short teaser to the upcoming Nightmare Saga. Also mentioned that RIFT 3.3: Nightmare Wakes will launch next month (no specific ETA). More info here!
  • More on Sky Projectors. Morticus has announced that Trion has a “really dark” sky projector with a starry sky in the works for dimensions. [r]
  • Rainbow Trophy Fish Fix. If you turned in your Plane of Water Fishing Trophy artifact set between January and today and didn’t get your Rainbow Trophy Fish dimension item, be sure to contact Morticus with your user name and character name (don’t send him your password!). [r]
  • Catalytic Essence in RIFT Store. The Catalytic Essence craft material will be added to RIFT Store -> Crafting -> Reagents in 3.3. It will cost 2plat each. This is an existing craft material used to craft various items like the Legendary Philter of Power. [r]
  • Instant Adventure Voice-Over Tech. Tarken Glacier Instant Adventures (like HK IAs) will be using new voice-over technology that allows only the player to listen to voice-overs upon quest acceptance.
