Trion had their 30th October 2015 Friday Livestream with Community Manager Eric “Ocho” Cleaver, Senior Content Designer Chris “Tacitus” Cates and Lead Content Designer Julia “Darkmoon” Flemming. Unfortunately Senior Concept Artist Stephen “Drakcoon” Mabee was unable to make it, so Darkmoon to his place.
Table of Contents:
- Livestream Summary. Autumn Harvest additions; Fae Yule; Patch 3.5 teaser; Extra Life, Mind of Madness and Conquest info.
- Livestream Giveaways.
As always, everything can be subject to change prior to the content hitting Live.
As mentioned before, this week’s livestream was relatively light on content so I’ll just be including key points below:
Autumn Harvest is a world event that is currently running in-game. (Laethys and Hailol players might not be able to see the World Event Tracker). You can learn all about the world event here.
Just mentioning things from the stream:
- There’s special Autumn Harvest Gloamwood Instant Adventures running for the event’s duration. There’s an achievement related to these adventures.
- The 7x Autumn Harvest Signets quest will appear via Rollo in the Realm of Twisted Dreams after next Wednesday’s hotfix (4th Nov).
- The Spinderella Mount was Senior Concept Artist Stephen “Drakcoon” Mabee’s idea!
Autumn Harvest ends on Friday, 13th Nov 2015.
Tacitus hast started work on Fae Yule world event.
- This year he is adding new Instant Adventures to the Iron Pine Peak zone in Mathosia.
- There’s also 6 new Gift Artifact Sets. There’s already 6 about the dragon cults in the game, but 6 more will be added as zone events (similar to Unstables) for Fae Yule. You’ll have half an hour to collect the various gift box artifact nodes scattered throughout the zone during said zone events.
Patch 3.5 Info
Two teasers about Patch 3.5 revealed:
- There might be something Open World PvP-related being added to 3.5, although CM Ocho mentioned it wasn’t what players are thinking of.
- Trion might reveal information about Patch 3.5 during the next RIFT Livestream in ~2 weeks’ time (13th Nov).
- Extra Life 2015 article is up with information on fundraising milestone rewards and titles for RIFT you can check out here. There’s also fundraising milestone reward information for all Trion games viewable on Trion’s Team Page here.
- If Rough Raptors (DEV_SupermanSocks) fundraises $10k, he’ll have Vladd shave his head on livestream. You can donate to his fundraising page here.
- The Mind of Madness article is up briefly introducing the first five bosses of the upcoming Tier 3 20-mand raid. Check it out here! Launches Nov 4th.
