Open Testing

Open testing for the Primalist calling and the Planetouched Wilds zone is up on the Public Test Shard. You can learn more about accessing the PTS, gearing up and posting feedback here.


  • RIFT Hardware Upgrades. This Tuesday, Sept 22nd, Trion will be performing some hardware upgrades for the game. These will take place whilst the shards are still online, so they should not result in any downtime. However, if you do discover any issues thanks to the hardware upgrades, please be sure to let Trion know here.
  • PTS Update: Wilds Wardrobe. There’s now four new wardrobe sets available for viewing on the PTS. Latest updates also include a ‘Random’ button for wardrobe; Act II begins for PTW; Dimension tiles available; Minion Card: Spirit Kite updated and more! Full information available here.
  • PTS Primalist-related Info:
    • Boxes on PTS should now give 2H dex and tank runes for Primalists. [r]
    • Various Primalist Masteries have been replaced with new abilities that have secondary effects. [r]
    • Vulcanist.
      • Slag debuff from Conflagrate is supposed to be in the same stacking group as Spiritual Deficiency (Inquisitor) and similar debuffs. [r] It’s also supposed to give a 5% increase in non-phys dmg instead of 7%. [r]
      • Primalist Mastery Defense 2 now spreads Slag to up to 5 targets when you use SKill Shot. [r]
      • Stroke of Brilliance will no longer do different damage between Fury and Cunning after the next update. [r]
