Known Issues

You can check out a list of known issues with the 3.3 patch from CM Morgana here. Please post any bugs you find in that thread too.


  • PTS Playtest & Livestream: Assault on Bronze Tomb. Trion will be holding a playtest and livestream of the upcoming warfront “Assault on Bronze Tomb” which introduces a new ‘Assault Mode’ where teams take turns defending and attacking key points in the warfront. [r]
    • Both the PTS Playtest and Livestream will occur at the same time: Friday, July 24th 2015 at 3:30PM PDT.
    • More info about the new Warfront can be found here.
    • Further information about the Playtest/Livestream can be accessed here.
  • Power Pack Disabled. The Power Pack found under RIFT Store -> Services has been temporarily disabled so you can no longer purchase it in-game. They are still available from Glyph or Steam. [r]
  • Chronicles Temporarily Disabled. Chronicles have been disabled until the next hotfix. [r]
  • Old RIFT Packs Gone. Sp0radicM0v3m3nt on the RIFT Forums has discovered that the old RIFT Packs (like Laethys’ Fortune and Glory of the Ascended) have been removed from the RIFT website and Steam.
    • They’ve also redesigned the Store on the RIFT website. It no longer has the packs either. [image]
    • When responding to a player on Rift’s subreddit today about how long the Nightmare Tide Packs would last, CM Ocho talked about simplifying the amount of packs available. [r] However, this was not a direct response to the removal of the old Packs so those might have been removed for another reason.
  • PTS Nightmare Saga Info. The issue with the Portal in Act III of the Nightmare Saga has been fixed on the PTS. If you are at that stage (will need to win some warfronts and complete some experts prior), you should now be able to continue the saga. [r]
