RIFT news tidbits for 1st November 2015.


  • Daylight Saving. Just a heads up that the in-game time for North American shards has changed from PDT to PST as of 2am 1st Nov. Please check with your guild and a time convertor to make sure you don’t miss any scheduled in-game activities.
  • Assault on Bronze Tomb Changes. The new warfront is getting a few changes: [r]
    • Engineers are working to make sure the warfront has less ties. No exact ETA, but ‘soon’.
    • Line of sight blocks will be added to the final room’s defender starting area.
    • Cannons will respect line of sight; no longer able to shoot through walls.
    • ‘Personal Defense Shield’ mechanic is being added to the map that gives you a 30sec immunity to the Cannons’ AoE abilities (ST still hits you), but reduces your outgoing damage/healing by 90% and incoming heals by 90%.
