Quick Friday hotfix updating RIFT to RIFT 3.4 Hotfix #5 to reverse changes to Masteries and The Nightmare mount from RIFT 3.4 Hotfix #4. This should fix issues with Soul Stream and related abilities.
Various UI changes; Arclight Infiltration Promo Week extended with some adjustments/fixes; Haligan the Pyretouched minion card adjusted; Raid Rifts “Plane Crawler Project” and “The Darkest Magic” nerfed; Mind of Madness fixes for Dark Genesis and Lord Arak. A whole heap of bug fixes included.
RIFT updated to RIFT 3.5 Hotfix #3. Large 2GB+ file download, but the actual hotfix notes are minimal – possible fix for a crash on login and a fix to the upgrade paths of two necks. I’ll take a look at the files and keep updating the “Summary/Additional Info” section with any other additions/changes to Live not mentioned in the notes. For instance, the Trove Dimension Item Promo Bundle has been added in.
