RIFT news tidbits for 10-11th July 2015.


  • Notice: Save Marauder Supply Caches for 3.3. Cupperoni (moderator for r/Rift/) has found out that Marauder Supply Caches will drop gear starting at Ephemeral (tier above Marauder). As such, you’d be better off not opening your Marauder Supply Caches until after the patch on July 15th 2015.
    • Marauder Supply Caches are gained from winning warfronts at Level 60+. The change mentioned above applied only to Level 65 players.
  • About Frenetic Gear. The upgrades to Dreambreaker (pvp) gear, called “Frenetic”, has been updated on the PTS to have +150 Hit on appropriate slots. Archonix has also mentioned that Trion will take a look at potentially adding procs for off-hand weapons. They ‘might’ be able to squeeze it in for 3.3 launch. [r]
  • Livestream Summary for 10th July 2015. Trion held a RIFT Livestream on Friday to show off the upcoming Tier 2 10-man Intrepid: Gilded Prophecy. They also explained Easy/Hard Modes, showed off some sweet loot from IGP, talked about upcoming GamesCom and PAX Prime Trion parties and hinted at future content (including a Primalist announcement at GamesCom). Full summary of the livestream here!
  • PTS Update + Datamining for 11th July 2015. Planar Crafted gear stat changes + weapon procs added + cost changes; Store-bought Tier 1 Necklaces now up on PTS; Frenetic Gear now +150 Hit; craftable wardrobe bundles cost adjusted up; Level 60 Character Pack; Random Chronicle rewards halved; new rarity: Ascended and more! Full info + Screens here!
    • Tip: A ton of new crafted items will hit Live with 3.3 on July 15th 2015. Might be wise to stock up on Nightmare Tide crafting materials until next week.
  • About Nightmare Saga. CM Ocho has confirmed that the Nightmare Saga will be released in three parts. Act I will hit with 3.3, Act II ~2 weeks later and Act III 2 weeks after that. [r]
  • Update: Dream Orb Stat Sheet. The Dream Orb Stat Sheet has been updated with complete values for Tier 1 Relic Necklace dream orb stats. (Thanks to Chickie@Laethys for the info! Apologies for wasting all your dream orbs!)

      But you already gave them to her! :O It’s okay Dark. Dream orbs are fleeting. Chickie’s stats are permanent.

    Any information about, if the craftable stuff have a next tier? Got the crafting stuff a equivalent upgrade part to pvp ´s “Frenetic”?

      Doesn’t look like the old craftables are getting a new upgrade tier. The Planar Crafted gear starts off blue and upgrades to the epics.
