RIFT News Tidbits 4-6th July 2015

General Feature Image

RIFT news tidbits for 4-6th July 2015.


  • Summerfest Store Items Info. The “World Event” category on the RIFT Store will most likely be removed with this week’s hotfix. If you still need anything from there, consider purchasing them now. You can use vouchers to send Merit Badges between alts.
  • PTS Datamining for 1st July 2015. Datamining for the most recent PTS Update is now up: includes a whole bunch of Planetouched Wilds models, skins and rigs. There’s also other tidbits including possible further info on the new warfront “Hive Kaaz’Gfuu Assault”. Full info/screens here!
  • More Planetouched Wilds Artifacts. The list of PTW artifacts on the PTS keeps growing! The image with all the artifacts has been updated. Babaroos and the Rhinenahyrcaros are amongst the new artifacts. It’s not suprising, but the Planetouched Wilds will likely feature content from all 6 planes.
  • Conquest Premade Back to 20. There’s currently an exploit that allows premades to enter with 20 instead of the current 5-man limitation. Due to how easy it is to replicate this, Game Director Archonix has decided to temporarily re-enable 20-man premades until a fix can be implemented. [r]
  • Future T2 Recipes? During a response about why Apoths and Runecrafters don’t have Planar Crafting weeklies, Morticus seemingly revealed that higher-than-T1-quality recipes will be coming in the future:

    Right now the power of Vials for Apothecaries and Runes for Runecrafters is that of T1 quality, which is the reason those professions are currently absent from Planar Crafting. We have had a few discussions about this and felt it was best if we did a bigger unveiling with appropriate fanfare when the weekly quests and associated recipes are added at a later date. [r]

  • Planar Poles No Stan’s Lure. Morticus has confirmed that the new Planar Fishing Poles coming in 3.3 will not have a chance of fishing up Stan’s Super Secret Lure. [r]
