  • RIFT 3.5: Winter’s Wrath Launches. RIFT 3.5 is now up on all shards! New Affinity System adds rewards for logging in/playing; Mage/Cleric base damage increased by 7% for certain abilities; Cleric Defiler Pain Transmission ability changed; Primalist Savage Blow Mastery changed; The Mind of Madness – Final Four bosses are up; Tier 1 Relic Ranged Weapons no longer boost other NT procs; New tier of PvP Gear (Warmongers; T2) and more!

    • Note: Chloromancer Evort NPC is up, but is currently inactive. Will likely become active some time in December for the Peaceful Hills dimension key.
  • RIFT 3.5 Known Issues. CM Morgana has posted up a Known Issues thread you can check out here.
    • Ascended Troves are not being rewarded for players above Level 10. This is a new trove players get for every 10 levels that contains pots, a mount/etc.
    • Conquest is disabled due to problems with the new changes to timers and lockouts. A potential fix will be looked at tomorrow. [r]
    • No Eyebrows Bug has popped up with the 3.5 patch. Currently no fix, but it is being looked into. [r]
    • Affinity Hourly Gain Bug. Right now there’s a bug if you crash or exit the game and then try to relog too soon, making the 60min timer reset. A temporary work-around is to wait at least 5min after you crash or exit the client before you log back onto a character. [r]
