RIFT Bonus Weekend 15th Jan 2016

  • PTW Exp Issue Status. Trion has found the source of the bug causing Planetouched Wilds mobs to give low-level experience. This will hit the Public Test Shard for the next week or so before going to Live. [r]
    • Earliest it will hit PTS is next Monday.
  • Archonix Letter ETA. CM Ocho has re-iterated that Archonix’s Producer/State-of-the-Game Letter might be ready some time during this month. [r]  He has also indicated that Archonix is back in the office from the holiday break. [r]
  • “My Number!” Achievement Fixed. The achievement for the warfront Ghar Station Eyn called “My Number!” should be fixed with the latest hotfix and should now trigger properly. [r]
  • 1/0 Dimension Bug On-Going. It seems that at least one user is still experiencing the 1/0 bug. It may or may not be linked to PvP-flag use in the dimension. [r] If you are experiencing this bug, please provide further information here.
  • About Faction Titles. Senior Game Designer Captain Cursor gave a quick tidbit today explaining that the Guardian PvP titles are all European military titles, whilst the Defiant PvP titles are all Ottoman-inspired ones. [r]
