    “The Fires of Heaven (Zaviel, EU) with World 2nd Pagura, World 2nd Lord Arak and World 1st ‘Vis and Misericordia’ (Pillars of Justice)! They currently lead as the only guild with 3/9. ”

    Indeed the only guild with 3/9 since Apotheosys is the only guild with 4/9!! Kappa PJSalt :p

    Also, here’s Puri PoV for Pagura – add plox! 😀

      Congratulations on the kills Apotheosys! At the time of the post FoH was furthest according to TopofRift. I’ve updated the post and will have the new kills up with today’s Tidbits. Also checked and you’re 5/9; congratulations! Guess you’ll have to wait until next month for the full clear.

    Maybe you should mention that Trion still hasen’t given out the converted ACM from the FoHorror, with the last patch and they they plan to do so this patch.

      The Fragments of Horror were converted to Abyssal Crusader’s Marks last week. CM Morgana’s patch notes had initially stated there was a ‘known issue’ and that it would be delayed till this week, but as Snedhepl stated, that ‘known issue’ info was in error and the conversion actually took place with RIFT 3.4 Hotfix #7 last week. [r]

      If your marks haven’t been converted yet, you should bug report it or contact Snedhepl to see what’s going on.
