RIFT news tidbits for 7th January 2016.


  • Arclight Infiltration Promo Week Begins. The Arclight Infiltration Promo Week is back, this time with a new “Nightmare Lifter” mount. 155%, Amphibious and account-wide unlock. There’s also dailies for event currency to obtain an Arclight Lifter or Storm Lifter mount from the PRI Quartermaster, as well as achievements to complete. Ends 3:30PM Server Time on 14th Jan 2016 (NA)(EU). More info here!
    • Note: It sounds as though Scout Captain Feldain isn’t spawning in King’s Breach for the “Lifter Larceny” achievement.
  • Fae Yule Ends. Fae Yule has ended. However, the World Event tab in the RIFT Store is still available, and you should be able to complete the Fae Yule minion adventure chains as long as you have the starter minion (Grish for 2015; Rudy for 2014).
  • Faelight Sparkle Returns Quest. The Faelight Sparkle Returns Quest is still available. Tacitus has confirmed that it will end with next week’s hotfix. [r]
  • MoM: Dark Genesis/Arisen Arak Re-enabled. The Dark Genesis and Arisen Arak bosses in the Mind of Madness have been re-enabled since their hiatus over the holidays. [r] Info added to RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #3 ‘Summary/Additional Info’ section.
  • MoM: Lord Arak Diagonal Orbs. The orbs/walls during the Lord Arak fight seem to occasionally be moving diagonally instead of on a straight path since the recent hotfix. If you are experiencing this issue, please provide any details/reproduction steps to krug here.
  • User Interface Plans. Gingers has been going over some player-submitted requests/ideas relating to UI and can confirm that Trion has plans to show additional overhead NPC icons by default, and to look at removing “Too many mail sent” and “Too many chat messages sent”-type warnings/restrictions for raid, group and guild interactions. Subject to change. [r]

    Regards to the arak walls. They have been bugging since release. Just happens to be PUBLIC now. It was reported beforehand by guilds who have killed and are progressing it though.

      That’s a shame. Hope they remember to spawn him for the next Arclight Infiltration Promo Week.
