RIFT news tidbits for 10th September 2015.

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


  • Reminder: 3.4 Open Testing. Just a reminder that open testing for Planetouched Wilds and the 5th Calling Primalist is slated tomorrow, Friday, 11th September 2015! More info from latest livestream.
    • Exact time unknown. [My guess is a few hours before the livestream that’s held at 3:30PM PDT]
    • I’ll have a quick guide to getting around and accessing the Public Test Shard for this specific test by tomorrow. Briefly:
      • Accessing PTS and Dummy Foundry. Master Mode Dummy Foundry has a “Teleport to PTW” item if you prefer to skip the intro quests.
      • Intro Quests for Planetouched Wilds can be accessed via your in-game mail on the PTS. I think you can just skip them though.
      • Expert and Master Mode Dummy Foundries will have NPCs to allow you to skip to Level 65 if you wish to do so for your Primalist. (some players leveling up Primalist from Level 1 will probably help though).
  • Notice: Primalist DEX-only. CM Ocho has confirmed that Primalists will use Dexterity as a main stat instead of both Dexterity and Strength. More info here.
  • Notice: RIFT Store Mounts Discount. RIFT is running a 25% off RIFT Store mounts sale. Stacks with patron. They are also putting up limited-time, account-wide unlock mounts on the RIFT Store (default key “]”) front page every 12hrs. More details here.
  • Notice: Double Bonus Weekend + Free Patron. Trion has sent out an e-mail informing players that they will receive 3 free days of Patron time if they log into the game between September 11-13th. There will also be +50% bonus experience for kills, PA XP, Prestige and Favor over the weekend. (Thanks to Tyler1986 over ar r/RIFT for the info)

50% RIFT Weekend Bonus

  • RIFT 3.4 Spotlight: Into the Primalist. Trion posted up a very brief overview of the Primalist you can check out here. Also has some Planetouched Wilds-related screenshots!
  • About The Wilds Pack Availability. CM Ocho mentioned today that there are currently no plans to stop selling The Wilds Pack; but they won’t remain on the store forever. [r]
  • Minion Card: Pay to Whinny. Pay to Whinny has been updated in the Minion Card Database: 18 Earth 7 Harvesting 30 Max Stamina. (Thanks to Bob Bobbinson for the info!)
