RIFT news tidbits for 7th July 2015.


  • Planned Shard (Extended) Downtime. Trion will be taking RIFT down for RIFT 3.2 Hotfix #16 as well as some extended server maintenance. Shards are estimated to be down for 6 hours. Please plan ahead!
  • Uncle Stan’s Lure Loot Table Adjustment. Morticus has confirmed that with 3.3, Uncle Stan’s Super Secret Lure’s loot table will be adjusted. Unknown on the exact details, but it will probably change at least some of the undesirable loot that players have been requesting removed (craft marks, common lure recipes/etc). [r]
  • Fixing up In-Combat Bug. Vladd has discovered “an issue that is globally affecting combat and time to leave combat for all callings” and is working on a fix. [r]
  • PTW Music. Captain Cursor has confirmed that Planetouched Wilds will have its own, original music. [r]
  • PTS Update. PTS has been updated today. A few tidbits before the article:
    • Planar Crafting: Dreamweaver Test Box. The Dream Weaver test box is now available in Master Mode Dummy Foundry on the PTS. It contains all the Planar Crafted dimension recipes.
    • Planetouched Wilds Portal Open. If you have been doing the PTW intro quests in Droughtlands, the portal just before the PTW entrance is now open. Note: Still can’t enter PTW.
    • Nightmare Saga Continues. If you were stuck on the Manifest Guilt, it should now spawn when you stand right on top of the marker.

    Todays PTS update added a new “upgrade box” at the top of Services tab on the store. Has the Molten Hover disc mount + a pink tier cape and other boosts.

    You wouldn’t happen to know what time the Summerfest minion adventures and World Event tab will become unavailable, by any chance?

      Most likely after this week’s hotfix (unless they decide to extend it).
