RIFT news tidbits for 14th December 2015.


  • PTS Update: Multiple Class Changes. The changes Red Hawk mentioned last week are now up on the PTS. There’s only a one-day feedback window for some of these changes (like the Tank changes) due to the holidays. Some of these changes will appear very shortly on Live. [Compilation of All Changes]
  • Future Shaman Change. Red Hawk has also noted that he would like to get Eruption of Life back into the Shaman rotation. However, any change to EoL will not make the current patch cycle. [r]
  • Notice: Merry Mink Troves (Possibly) Removed. Based on both info from players and last week’s RIFT Livestream, it seems that the Limited Edition: Merry Mink Troves were possibly removed (or their drop rate heavily reduced) since the hotfix last Friday. [r]
    • Unfortunately Trion haven’t posted up last Friday’s RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #2 patch notes yet so can’t 100% confirm the change.
  • Possible Shal Korva Dimension Key Border Expand. Morticus has indicated that Trion will take a look at potentially increasing the Shal Korva Dimension Key’s borders. No details provided, but the thread he responded to was talking about expanding the borders to include the Throne Room, Ruins underneath and perhaps the Airport. [r]
  • Bug: Can’t Sell Using Craft +. There’s currently a bug preventing some players from selling items on the RIFT Store if they access the store via the new “+” feature added next to craft reagents. [r] Fix should be ready by next hotfix. [r]

Note: The game was updated to RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #2 last Friday. [r] However, Trion has yet to post up the patch notes.
