RIFT News Tidbits 27th August 2015

RIFT news tidbits for 27th August 2015.

You can find full 3.3 patch notes + a summary with useful links here.


  • Premature Planetouched Wilds Quest. A few players might have received a letter from Rahn Chuluun in their in-game mail today with an intro quest for the Planetouched Wilds. The letter was sent out prematurely and has since been disabled. [r] It will re-appear closer to the release of the zone.
  • Missing World Event Tracker. Some players are unable to see the World Event/Promo Week Tracker. It seems to mainly affect players on Hailol and Laethys (for NA). Trion is investigating the issue. [r]
  • Event: Flamewave Bug. The disabled zone event “Flamewave” in Goboro Reef was accidentally triggered yesterday. It has been re-locked again, but will hopefully make an appearance when 3.4 goes live. [r]
  • Cleric Issues. Red Hawk has made a post in the Cleric sub-forums. Tidal Surge should be properly buffing all casts from Monsoon and he’ll take a look at some of the other issues posted up by players. [r]
  • Spreadsheet Updates.
    • Minion Card Database.
      • Minion: Acalan can also be obtained from Construct-type mobs in Scarlet Gorge. (Thanks to Wabbit@Laethys for the info!)
      • Minion: Jari has been corrected to have 17 Dimension with 18 max matching stats. (Thanks to Ainroughhaidh for the info!)
    • Dream Orb Stat Sheet. Updated T2 relic shoulder max stats. They are 190 main stat, 190 endurance and 161 main stat + 68 ap/sp. (Thanks to Aengelic@Zaviel for the info!)

Note: Since PAX Prime is tomorrow, there’s probably not going to be a RIFT Livestream this Friday.

Community Content

Below is a list of content created recently by the RIFT community!

  • Flat Tire [Dimension]. Rezi over at The Dimension Touring Company has posted up an interesting article about getting the balance right between time spent on various activities and RIFT. Come check it out here, and perhaps some of the dimension thumbnails will give you some inspiration for your next dimension!

    Well that makes more since. I noticed last promo week that I couldn’t see the “event”. I figured it was just me but nice to know I’m not alone.

    I reported the World Event tracker as broken well over a year ago. Nice to see Trion being speedy and caring as usual.

      It has broken a few times before, but has usually been fixed some time afterwards. It’s still annoying though to see it break every now and then because when new events pop up, a lot of players who aren’t tuned in to Rift news (or have guildies who do) completely miss out.
