RIFT news tidbits for 23rd November 2015.


  • RIFT 3.5: Winter’s Wrath Article. Trion has posted up an article teasing RIFT 3.5: Winter’s Wrath. It will come out some time in December and include PvP gear upgrades, the new Affinity System, Fae Yule and some other additions. Check out the article here! Also has a preview of the Midnight Mink mount.
  • RIFT Livestream this Wednesday. It seems Trion is moving this week’s livestreams to this Wednesday instead of the usual Friday (probably due to Thanksgiving on Thursday). The RIFT livestream will be held Nov 25th at 11:30AM PST, showing off the second half of the Mind of Madness raid. Be sure to tune in on their twitch channel here!
  • Raid Cost Reductions. Vladd has posted up a few ideas that Trion is looking into to reduce the cost of raiding. This includes reducing or removing upgrade tiers for runes and seals; changing planar crafted recipes that use planar motes into prismatic motes that drop from all crafting rifts; increasing drop rates of Imperishables and motes; reducing amender components, remove cooldowns; and reduce mats required for crit pots. These are all mainly ideas for now and are not 100% set in stone. You can check out the full post by Vladd here.
  • About Wardrobe Tints. Tacitus has explained why there are some tints of the same wardrobe model as different wardrobes. You can read up on it here.
