RIFT news tidbits for 4thOctober 2015.


  • Primalist Giveaway/Contests Galore. Looking forward for RIFT 3.4? There’s a whole bunch of Primalist/The Wilds Pack giveaways popping up in the Rift community. Be on top of your game and don’t miss out on any.
    • Check out a summary of all active Primalist-related giveaways/contests here.
    • Looking for a little more? Check out all active giveaways/contests/events here.
    • Want even more? Check out a post on /r/Rift about where how to not miss a thing when it comes to giveaways here.
  • Update: Raid Loot Changes. Vladd updated his post about upcoming Raid loot changes with 3.4 to clarify a few points: [r]
    • Hard Mode loot chests do NOT drop extra loot. The extra loot for T1/T2 bosses only applies to normal loot.
    • Jewelry/Accessory drops will also be adjusted to account for Primalists.
  • PTS Update: Currency Conversion. Storm Legion currency has been converted to plat; pre-NT gear/rewards converted to Void stones; Jolt mount and Pet Skin: Khadlig added; Underwater Mount Training now has plat option and there’s 3 new 155% Crabnarok mounts for plat-only; Ice Zerker proc adjusted; Rogue Riftstalker’s Rift Guard reverted to old %-mitigation and Primal Leather wardrobe. More info + Screens here!
  • Minion Card Updated. The Zendi minion card you get from The Wilds Pack has changed from its current Live version. Originally it was supposed to be available to players in 3.4 but was accidentally added to eligible players’ collection prior. (Thanks to Accol for the info!)
    • Live: 12 starting stamina and attributes: 1 Earth, 1 Air.
    • PTS: 12 starting stamina and attributes: 1 Air, 3 Hunting, 3 Artifact, 1 Assassination.
    • Might be wrong, but I think this is the first time we’ve seen a minion card with starting, individual attribute values of greater than one.
    • Possible Max stats: 30 stamina and attributes: 7 Air, 15 Hunting, 15 Artifact, 17 Assassination. Max attribute score would be 24.
    • Note: Not updating Minion Card Database until after the change goes Live. Same with the Spirit Kite minion card.

Zendi Minion Card PTS

  • Further Primalist Vulcanist Adjustments. Vladd has stated that Eth Beam will have its damage reduced slightly; [r] Stroke of Brilliance is now 100% at true Harmony (up from 50%) and he will reduce Vorpal damage slightly. [r]

    I’ve had some minions start with 3, actually I think 1 started with 1,3,3,1 but I can’t remember the name and I’m not in-game.
