RIFT news tidbits for 25th November 2015.


  • Promo: Black Friday RIFT Sale. Trion is holding a sale from Nov 26th to Nov 30th: 50% off Nightmare Tide packs, Dream Soul and Storm Soul Packs; 25% off Premium mounts; and various mount flash sales on a 12hr rotation. [r]
  • Arclight Ascendancy Promo Week Returns. Starting from 3:30PM Server Time on Thursday, 26th November 2015 (NA) (EU), the Arclight Ascendancy Promo Week makes a return with the new Golden Arclight Rider mount. The mount will be available as a rare chance drop from Limited Edition: Golden Arclight Rider Troves. [r]
  • No Hotfix This Week. This week we only had a server reset, not a hotfix. [r] [This is probably because Trion doesn’t want to put out a hotfix the day before a public holiday (Thanksgiving), and probably a long weekend for some employees.]
  • RIFT Livestream. Trion held their latest livestream showing off the last four bosses of the Mind of Madness raid. You can check out the recorded video here. I’ll have the usual Livestream Summary article later today/early tomorrow.
  • Dream Orb Stat Sheet Updated. The Dream Orb Stat Sheet has been updated with Helm/Shoulder values for T3 Epic gear. (Thanks to Hundreds for the info!)
  • Callweddi Puzzle Info.
    • More Clues for Books. Dead Simon has mentioned that starting with the hotfix on Dec 2nd, there will be more clues that will help you find the six Callweddi books. [r]
    • World First Turpentine Troop Ammo. Congratulations to Quimby on the RIFT forums for getting World First drop for the Turpentine Troop Ammo book! The rest of the books have also bee obtained now. [r]
    • Book Hints. Various book hints posted up by players on the RIFT Forums:
      • Quimby on Turpentine Troop Ammo book here.
      • Grixog on Pier to Tournament Mop book here.
      • Grixog on More Unimportant Poet book here.
      • Grixog with some decoding of texts here.
      • Quimby on how to obtain the 6th book once you have the first 5 here.
    • Book Reward. Once you collect all 6 books, new puzzle boxes appear from the Callweddi vendor, including the full Callweddi Ceremonial outfit and the Life Lifter mount.
    • Foreshadowing. Throughout the Callweddi Puzzle/Books you’ll read about various other stuff. These hint at future plans that Dead Simon has. Dead Simon has mentioned that “some if it planned for quite soon others much much further in the future”. [r]
  • Tulan Key on Store. Morticus has announced that the Tulan dimension key will be available on the store for “3.5 or shortly thereafter”. No details on how we’ll be able to obtain it (i.e., might be Credits-only, or perhaps part of Affinity rewards. Unknown at this stage). [r]
  • About Power Leveling Posts on Forums. CM Ocho has stated that posting up Power Leveling services on the RIFT Forums is not against forum rules, as long as the service is paid for “explicitly for in game currency, and only in game currency”. Further information here.
  • Frosty Levitation. Oddr on the RIFT Forums has confirmed that the new weekly patron box on the PTS drops the Frosty Levitation Supply Crate. This probably means that during the week when Patch 3.5 launches, you probably want to hold off on opening your Patron Weekly Gift until after the patch is up.
  • Possible Fae Yule IA Playtest. Tacitus has mentioned that he might organize a playtest for the upcoming Fae Yule Instant Adventures “early next week”. [r]

    In the Guide for the Promo Week you write that there are minion missions for the Capacitor Competency achievment. But the achievment of the Promo Week is Arclight Mastery which will net you the minion Archaeologist Herim.
