General Feature Image

RIFT news tidbits for 5th October 2015.


  • New API Address. If you have a Rift Event Tracker that currently uses the Mobile API, Trion has managed to make some changes so that your tracker will continue to function! In short, “change your api calls from chat-eu.riftgame.com to web-api-eu.riftgame.com” or web-api-us.riftgame.com for NA. [r]
  • PTS Update: The Wilds Celebration Pack. New gift appearing in your Claim window on PTS: Gives new Seafoam Crabnarok mount, Ascended Seal, 4 Shalistiri weapon wardrobe, 1mil PA XP and Trove of Boosts (160% vials). 5th Wilds wardrobe also visible, and there’s 4 new Planetouched Wilds weekly quests with an open raid boss included! More info/Screens here.
    • Archonix also mentioned that “there will be more” stuff given away, not just The Wilds Celebration Pack. He mentioned to “Keep an eye out over the next few weeks”. [r]
    • Archonix confirmed everyone gets it! [r]
  • Extra Life Charity: Rough Raptor Fundraising. DEV_SupermanSocks has added his fundraising page to Team Trion 2015 for this year’s Extra Life 24hr gaming charity event! Like last year, he is giving away the ultra-rare Minion Card: Rough Raptor. However, this year he’s got a little extra to give away:
    • 10x Minion Card: Rough Raptor to 10 random donators with donations of $10 or more.
    • 15x [REDACTED] to 15 random donators with donations of $10 or more. ([redacted] item currently unknown).
    • Overall cumulative top donator, and the highest single donation will receive both a Rough Raptor Minion Card and [REDACTED].
    • If he reaches $10,000, he’ll shave off his head hair that he has been growing for the past 18 months!
    • Check out his fundraising page, help support Children’s Miracle Hospitals and keep your 7th Nov weekend free!
  • Uncle Stan’s Lure. Morticus is taking a look at Uncle Stan’s Lure’s loot table again. Any changes they make will probably not make it until 3.4.1. [r]
  • T1/T2 Raid Nerfs. Vladd has hinted that T1 and T2 raids will be nerfed when 3.4 hits. [r] No details, but these will be on top of the extra loot coming out.
  • Vulcanist Parses. Vladd has made a lot of tweaks to the Primalist Vulcanist over the weekend and would like players to post up some new parses. Send to in this thread here!
  • Cleric Status. Red Hawk has indicated he will take a look at addressing Cleric concerns later this week after 3.4 release. [r]

    “If he reaches $10,000, he’ll shave off his head that he has been growing for the past 18 months!”

    That would be an awesome trick; not that growing his head for the past 18mths isn’t also an awesome trick. 🙂

      Whoops! Well; that would certainly be worth $10,000!

    as I understood, planetouched wilds would be accessable as from droughtlands as from ember island?

      Not sure about Ember Isle; there might be fatigue debuff. However, you’ll be able to access it from Droughtlands.

      just seems too closer. if you’ll swim at 11550;4100 (live) you’ll see it: http://googledrive.com/host/0BxNbonm8WQm6RlM5c3V6OWZXVGs/emb-ptw.jpg
      it’s exactly before fatigue and few meters to invisible wall

    I’ve read that the Seafoam crabnarok mount is account wide. Does it mean PTS account or also for regular shards?

    • October 6, 2015 at 2:03 pm #

      Hmm…I used the Seafoam Crabnarok mount on the PTS and it wasn’t available for the other chars on the PTS.
      The gift most likely works like the Daily/Weekly gifts, so you get one per region (i.e., NA, EU and PTS). The mount itself is Bound on Account and only applied to one character.
