PTS Update + Datamining for 7th July 2015

PTS Update + Datamining for 7th July 2015 Feature Image

RIFT updated the Public Test Shard (‘PTS’) on 7th July with an ~100mb update! TEST-302-86-A-1018813. Planar Crafted gear stat changes, Power Pack and you can now continue the Planetouched Wilds intro and Nightmare Saga quests.

Summary:

  • Planar Crafted Gear Updated. Stats changed, including bonuses. [Update 07.11.15: Gear stats changed. Weapons now have procs]
  • Nightmare Saga + PTW Intro Quests Continued.
  • Power Pack. New pack, Magenta rarity?
  • Other Info. Shard Vault; Dreamweaving Planar Crafted Test Box and Nightmare Thresher Mount Icon.

As always, everything below is subject to change prior to hitting Live and some things included below may never make it to Live release.


Planar Crafted Gear Updated

The Planar Crafted gear coming in RIFT 3.3: Waking Nightmares has been updated. Stats are no longer all spell/phys crit.

[Update 07.11.15: Gear stats changed. Weapons now have procs. Keeping the below stats here for reference purposes.]

Overview

Just a quick overview of the stat changes. Used to be all spell/phys crit except Warriors who had AP. Also, the armor bonuses were either spell/phys crit or +250AP.

Now the tertiary stats are a lot more varied across gear slots – same across Callings.

Depending on your current stats, the 2-set armor bonus isn’t too bad even for some Tier 2 raiders. (e.g. planar crafted Chest + Belt for Cleric DPS seems to be very slightly better than my T1 Relic Chest + T2 dropped Belt for my gear when you account for the +250 WIS bonus)

For DPS

  • Helmets: Spell/Phys Crit
  • Chests: AP/SP
  • Belt: CP
  • 2-Set Armor Bonus: Main Stat + 250
  • Weapons: Combination of SP and/or CP
  • Earrings: AP/SP
  • Rings: Spell/Phys Crit
  • Trinkets: Spell/Phys Crit

For Tanks

  • Helmets: Dodge
  • Chests: Guard
  • Belt: Block
  • 2-Set Armor Bonus: Endurance + 250
  • Weapons: Block
  • Earrings: Guard
  • Rings: Guard
  • Trinkets: Dodge

Note: Morticus has stated that there’s no shields – this is intentional. Strangely, Cleric and Warrior Tanks get 2-handers (which are useless since they use shields).

Interestingly, stats aren’t the same across Callings. Specifically, Rogue’s get a lot of tertiary stats whilst on the other end, Clerics get hardly any:

  • Helmet: Rogue = 403 phys crit vs Warrior’s 378 phys crit, Mage’s 334 spell crit and Cleric’s 252 spell crit.
  • Chest: Rogue = 203 AP vs Warrior’s 190 AP, Mage’s 168 SP and Cleric’s 127 SP.
  • Belt: Rogue = 254 CP vs Warrior’s 239, Mage’s 211 and Cleric’s 159.

This could all just be because of spec weights being vastly different across Callings. Plus the differences between Primary/Secondary and Tertiary stats might balance it out.

Cleric DPS

[Update 07.11.15: Gear stats changed. Weapons now have procs. Keeping the below stats here for reference purposes.]

Cleric Tank

As noted before, Cleric Tank has 2-handed staff which is useless since they require 1h + shield. No shields with planar crafted gear.

Nightmare Saga + PTW Intro Quests Continued

The Nightmare Saga and Planetouched Wilds intro quests have been fixed so you should be able to progress further into each one. The Planetouched Wilds quests will stop at the PTW entrance, whilst you’ll probably be stuck on the Nightmare Saga Act III quests unless you can find a decent group of players to queue warfronts and experts.

CaptainCursor has confirmed that you will be able to trade the Orphiel dimension item rewarded from one of the Nightmare Saga quests. [r]


Power Pack

RIFT Store -> Services now has a new pack “Power Pack”. Doesn’t have a price yet.

Power Pack Ascended Mantle Magenta Rarity

Contains the Ember Lifter (likely the fire-based lifter mount) mount, 32-slot ‘Steam Trunk’ (bag?), Trove of Boosts and Ascended Cape appropriate to your calling.

Currently the cape preview is probably a placeholder since it is the same for all callings – the gem-encrusted cape.

Ascended Mantle

The most interesting part is that the ‘Ascended Mantle’ it supposed to “scale up to Level 60” – so looks like it changes stats as you level. It also gives you 10% more experience from all sources up to Level 60.

Magenta Rarity

You’ve probably also noticed that the cape’s item tooltip color is magenta. First time seeing this color officially in-game. Seems like a new rarity above Transcendent. Perhaps it could also be used for items that auto-scale.

AH Magenta Rarity

Thanks to Accol‘s detective work, the Auction House now has a new ‘blank’ category under the Rarity drop-down menu.

There’s also new pink/magenta border icons in the data files:

Magenta border icons PTS


Other Info

A few other tidbits:

Shard Vault

Shard Vault

‘Account Vault’ is now named Shard Vault to make it less confusing, since the shard vault is only shared across your characters on a single shard. Unknown at this stage whether the 3,000 Credits price tag is for an account-wide unlock of the Shard Vault, or a per-shard cost.

Dreamweaving Planar Crafted Test Box

Dreamweaving Planar Crafting Test Box

The Master Mode Dummy Foundry NPC now sells Dreamweaving Planar Crafting Test Box, along with the other Planar Craft-related test boxes. You should now be able to obtain all the dimension recipes related to planar crafting for 1 silver on the PTS.

Nightmare Thresher Icon

Data files didn’t contain much – but it did reveal the icon below:

Nightmare Thresher Mount Icon

Given the harness in the icon, we’ll probably get a Nightmare Thresher mount at some point. My guess would be when the Nightmare Saga questchain launches in 3.3. It’ll probably be a RIFT Store or lockbox mount.


A stat overhaul to the Planar Crafted gear as well as a new Power Pack with ‘Magenta’-rarity auto-scaling cape. Be sure to test out the Nightmare Saga and Planetouched Wilds intro quests if you have the time and provide Trion with any feedback via PTS Sub-forums.
