  • RIFT 3.3 Hotfix #6.5. Trion added a mini-fix today that didn’t require a server restart. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, just exit RIFT and launch it again. The small download should fix client-side crafting lag and re-enable Steam Wallet purchase of the Power Pack from the RIFT Store -> Services. [r]
  • About Planar Dream Orbs [PTS]. Morticus has responded to feedback on the increased rng of the upcoming 3.4 planar dream orbs by stating that stats are not final. He also mentioned that the drop rates for imperishable motes will increase so that the motes cost of the new planar dream orbs will “no longer be relevant”.
    • More Dream Orbs. Morticus also mentioned that there would be new “Improved <name> Dream Orbs” for the existing dream orbs. These will not need imperishables. [r]
  • Planetouched Wilds – The Early Years. CaptainCursor showed off a screenshot from the Planetouched Wilds zone as it was years before the launch of RIFT. Check it out below!
