  • Minion Card Database Updated. The Minion Card Database has been updated with the six new minion cards that have appeared with Autumn Harvest 2015. (Big thanks to Rigaemortis@Laethys for the info!).
    • Taskmaster Atrophinius. Obtained from RIFT Store -> World Event. (Life, Hunting, Harvesting). Rest obtained via minion adventures once you have Taskmaster Atrophinius. All cards 12 starting stamina (likely 30 max).
    • Qu’ella the Wretched (Air, Life).
    • Haligan the Pyretouched (Fire, Dimension).
    • The Nightstalker (Death, Harvesting).
    • The Hag of Gloamwood (Earth, Water, Dimension).
    • Athelan the Fallen (Life, Death, Hunting, Harvesting).
    • To obtain the cards, you’ll need to have collected Taskmaster Atrophinius. Then the special chain adventures will appear a few times in the 5min/15min slot before an 8hr will appear that rewards the next card in the chain. Cupcakey/Riane has the full guide to the chain here.

  • Notice: Warrior’s Dire Corruption Disabled. Warrior Reaver’s “Dire Corruption” ability has been disabled due to a bug/potential exploit as the ability is dealing damage endlessly to companion pets, dummies and other players. No info on when it will be fixed/re-enabled. [r]
  • Featured Queue Instant Adventure Temporarily Disabled. The Featured Queue for Instant Adventures (default key “.“) has been temporarily disabled until Autumn Harvest officially begins, to avoid confusion over the hotfix notes stating that it has special halloween-themed adventures, when that only begins on Thursday 22nd Oct at 3:30PM ST. [r]
  • Current Known Issues with Localization. Dev Explikor has updated the list of all known localization issues with Patch 3.4 Hotfix #4. Got any not on the list, send it his way!

(No RIFT Livestream this week.)

Workaround: If your buff bar/ability bars suddenly disappear, hit Esc -> Edit Layout then Save and it should reappear.
