RIFT News Tidbits 19th January 2016

RIFT news tidbits for 19th January 2016.


  • Planned Region Downtime. All shards will be going down for RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #6 tomorrow.
  • Official Ongoing Dimension Request List Updated. Morticus has updated the on-going dimension request list here. Note that this is just a collection of requests made by players and does not indicate planned content. However, Morticus does add notes to some and crosses out anything that is planned or won’t happen. Below is a list that is coming:
    • Dimension Keys: Haunted Terminal (Tempest Bay); Lanquarium; and Anywhere with deep/old growth forest theme. Coming after 3.5.
    • Glass/Ice/Water building blocks. Morticus: “Art made this work […] Expect them soon(tm)”. [Likely relates to -> [Image]].
    • There’s no plans to expand on PvP gameplay in dimensions. [r]
  • New Emote: Lookout. Comparing some new vs old char config files, it seems that High Elves and Kelari have a new ‘Lookout’ emote. Type /lookout to check it out!
    • The emote is on a continuous loop and has some nice poses for screenshot enthusiasts.
    • The emote is not in old emote lists or /help commands, so it’s likely relatively new.
    • /lookout doesn’t work on Bahmi or Eth, so it’s possible that the emote might have hit Live prematurely.

RIFT Emote Lookout

  • RIFT Store Upgrade Bug Fix. The issues with viewing upgrades on the RIFT Store will be fixed in this week’s hotfix. [r]
  • Bronze Tomb Fixes. Kerilar has posted up that with this week’s hotfix, the endless respawn and stuck corpse issues should be fixed. The min. number of players required to start a match will also been increased to 10 per side. [r]
  • Callweddi Village Info. Dead Simon has provided a list of puzzle-related items you can purchase once you have access to Callweddi village. [r]
    • Antonell sells 5 puzzle boxes: three spawn artifacts and the other two provide special dimensions, one which requires max notoriety with the Achyati.
    • After collecting the PTW puzzle books, Antonell offers 6 more puzzle boxes: one contains the Life Lifter mount; the other 5 make up the Callweddi Ceremonial Garb outfit.

The PTS was updated today with an ~2GB patch. The bulk of the file size is likely catch-up to the Live client, especially the RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #3 patch. PTS is currently offline. Will have an article up once it comes back online, but we can probably expect at least some Cleric Shaman tweaks, as Red Hawk mentioned last week. [r]
