General Feature Image

RIFT news tidbits for 29th October 2015.


  • Mind of Madness Release Date Announced. As you might have noticed in today’s Welcome Window message, the first five bosses of the Mind of Madness raid will be released on Wednesday, November 4th 2015. Be sure to have 1,400 Hit ready! [r]
  • Upcoming RIFT Livestream. CM Ocho, Tacitus and Drakcoon will be showing off the Autumn Harvest world event this Friday, Oct 30th at 3:30PM PDT on Trion’s Twitch channel. Be sure to check it out! [r]
    • Drakcoon is the creator of the Spinderella Mount! (Thanks to Smugkitty for the info!)
  • PTS Update + Datamining: T2 Store Weapons. PTS was updated on the 28th with Tier 2 bundles and separate Tier 2 store weapons. There’s also new Tier 3 ‘Store Items’ test packs via Master Mode Dummy Foundry. Forgemaster’s Inferno gets a feature image, and there’s a new red-fire Strider mount. More info here!
    • Note: PTS was updated again today (29th). Contents of the Tier 3 ‘Store Items’ packs have been updated, and there’s also new ‘Dropped Items’ packs for Tier 3 raid-dropped gear. Data files contain 4 new icons that look like Dimension Key Bundles.
    • Tier 3 Raid Currency is called Fragments of Darkness.
    • Upgrades for T3 raid-dropped armor goes from base -> base + set bonus -> better stats + set bonus. The final upgrade is a similar ‘stat level’ to the base store-bought T3 armor. [Example].
    • Due to how little new info there is, I’ve added the 29th Oct update to the 28th’s article.
  • Akylios Weapons with no Procs. Vladd will take a look at some Akylios-dropped weapons with missing procs. [r]
  • Mount VFX Bug. The vfx above certain mounts are in the wrong location (such as the rainbow sparkles from the Unicorn-based mounts). A fix will be coming in soon. [r]
