RIFT 3.4 Hot Fix #4 – 10/21/15

== FEATURES ==

AUTUMN HARVEST WORLD EVENT RETURNS!
Telara’s season of ghoulish tricks and treats returns on October 22 through November 11. Your favorite events from previous years are back – but this season has a few new frights of its own!

‘Tis the Season For All That Scares
The portals to the Realm of Autumn Harvest are open! Plunder loot that the Fae have stolen throughout the year – but beware: Seasonal Rifts bring the fight to Telara, and Monster Mash returns to Black Garden, turning combatants into shambling horrors, werewolves, and worse.

Frightful Weapons
An assortment of awe inspiring armament appearances are available in Autumn Harvest! Collect all the variants of this wonderful weaponry before they take flight!

Don a Costume
Scare your friends in style with new signature masks. This year’s collection contains some classic looks, including a Skull that will haunt your dreams! In addition pick up new backpacks that will have you very animated, and a set of bat wings that will be all the rage at Autumn Harvest parties.

Instant Terror
Gloamwood gets a bit spookier when you visit it inside our featured Instant Adventure! For the length of Autumn Harvest encounter all new spooky bosses while roaming through Gloamwood; will you be able to defeat them all?

Spun From Steel and Fear
A carriage fit for a demon queen, Spinderella is terrifyingly eye catching! A delicate web of steel forms the structure, which sits atop eight terrifying mechanical legs. Get one before the Lock Box disappears after Harvest’s end! If you didn’t manage to pick up an Armored Nightmare last year then you’re in luck! The Ironclad Nightmare shares the same appearance and is available for Autumn Harvest Signets or Credits. Unlocking for a single character, this foreboding steed scales to the speed of your fastest mount.

New Minions & Adventures
Who loves Autumn Harvest most of all? Taskmaster Atrophinious! He’s got a mission for you, and along the way you might run into the season’s other new Minions: Qu’ella the Wretched, The Nightstalker, The Hag of Gloamwood, and more!

New Dimension Items
Super cute plushies, Jack-o’-lantern sconces, pies, and more! Find these in the Autumn Harvest Dimension Grab Bag.

Animated Portrait Badge
Get your Creepy Crawler animated spider portrait badge by completing the new achievement, Mask-A-Raid: 2015!

To get this party started, we’ve got a fearsomely fun special: With your first purchase of a $49.99 credit pack in game (or the local equivalent), you’ll receive 5 Limited Edition: Spinderella Troves! Don’t wait long though, this deal only lasts through Tuesday, October 27!

    3:30pm? Welp, might as well go to bed then, since that’s only a half hour before I usually get up.

      Unfortunately the special instance where the main questgivers are located had issues, so it’s being delayed by a day. Another hotfix will be up tomorrow. [r]
