  • RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #13. RIFT has been updated to RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #13. There’s now a portal to Yrlwalach in Mount Sharax. Also, pets disabled for the Drekanoth of Fate encounter in Rhen of Fate. Hotfix notes here.
    • With the latest hotfix The Sheepening is no more. Margle Palace NPCs have returned to their former selves. Trion is still turning various switches on and off to improve fps. [r]
  • Live Datamining for 24th June 2015. With the latest hotfix comes some new icons: Life and Fire Lifter mounts, a new Warbeast mount and several puzzle book icons. More info here.
  • Easy/Hard Mode Rhen of Fate. Easy/Hard Mode testing for Rhen of Fate has begun on the PTS. (Thanks to Joshua for the info!)
  • Mage Harbinger Phase Step Change. Red Hawk has announced that he will change Phase Step to “Your next 3 single-target damaging abilities teleport you to your target. 3 charges, 30 second CD”. Phase Step will no longer deal any damage. [r]
  • Planar Crafted Trinket Procs. Morticus has confirmed that you will have the option to choose between three different types of Planar Crafted trinkets that covers dps/heal/tank procs for each class. [r]
  • Dimension Item: Kubara Sakti. Recently players found that the Kubara Sakti NPC at Achyati Village, Dendrome offers a new dimension item of the same name. Dead Simon has replied stating that the item accidentally made it to Live and is actually slated for Patch 3.4. [r]
    • No details on how you will be able to obtain it, but it will not be a world drop. Instead, it “will not be easy” to obtain it.
    • Dead Simon mentioned that this item is “part of something much larger, coming to Telara soon(tm)”. Again, no details.
    • Boost up your Achyati notoriety rep if you are interested in this item.

    Can anyone confirm that we can skip the 1st 3 bosses and go directly to yrlwalach, or is it just a port so you can go to yrlwalach after defeating the first 3 bosses.

    Im assuming its the 1st, because if i remember correctly there was already a port at the start of mt sharax to get to yrlwalach after you downed the first 3 bosses. My guild wont be running MS till saturday to test it out

      Went into a fresh Mount Sharax yesterday and it had a portal to Yrlwalach. That said, I didn’t enter it so can’t 100% confirm, but it seems like you can skip the first 3 bosses.

    Thanks for the info Khortish. Thats good to know. We usually have to pug 8 or so for MS and every now and then we get a bad group and get hung up on Jino or Izki, so if that happens its nice to know we can jump to yrlwalach, which is only slightly harder to down then Bulf

    My guild just did it, and yes you can Skip the first 3 bosses of MS and go right into the last two.
