RIFT News Tidbits 4th December 2015

RIFT news tidbits for 4th December 2015.


  • RIFT 3.5: Winter’s Wrath Date Announced. Trion announced the date for RIFT 3.5 today – launches 9th Dec 2015. Want to know what’s in the patch and some quick preparation tips? Check out a 3.5 compilation here.
  • Affinity Testing. Affinity has been adjusted on the PTS for testing purposes only. Affinity on the PTS is gained at 1 Affinity per minute, instead of the normal per hour. This should allow you to test out some of the Affinity Rewards and test out if there’s any point gain issues. [r]
  • PTS: Affinity Dream Orbs. The Dream Orbs you can obtain using Affinity currency that is currently on the PTS has a 33% chance of getting BiS stat for either main stat-only, end-only or main stat + AP/SP values. (Thanks to Boase for the info!).
  • PTS: Affinity Poles/Dimension Items. Kiwi and other PTS testers have posted up information about the Atia dimension, rare dimension box and the various fishing lures/poles available for Affinity points on the PTS. Check out previews of the items and the kind of loot the lures drop here.

There’s no RIFT livestream this week. Tune in next week with Tacitus for (what’s likely to be a) Fae Yule-related livestream.

(Also keep an eye out on RiftGrate for some Xmas-related goodness!)

    I managed to save enough points to get the Shiny Wisps of Zoom mount… pretty sweet looking 🙂

    I tested the new lure & fishing pole. First charge got me a Meridian Tavern Pavilion. Second charge gave me a bag of soggy crafting marks. The final charge gave me two common (both twisted) and an uncommon artifact.
