Shard Unification and International Support Coming

Shard Unification and International Support

Announced on the RIFT Community Page, next week we will see the merger and unification of Shards within their regions on Wednesday October 23rd for NA Shards and Thursday, October 24th for EU Shards. This is awesome for us players as it allows us to queue up with more people across the entire shard and complete random dungeons together as well as increase the players available to annihilate each other in Warfronts. This move is also the beginning of a larger plan to enable customers from all over the world to experience the same content together, simultaneously. While one player is seeing everything in French and party member is seeing it all in German, the devs at Trion are very happy and excited about this. Read on for all details posted by dahanese on the RIFT Forums or click the source link for the full post.…

Featured Wardrobes: October 15
The first featured wardrobe is being shown off by the menacing Atraidez on Greybriar.

My favourite part about this outfit is the helm. It definitely takes this wardrobe from "I'm going to kick your ass" to "I'm going to chop you into tiny pieces, laughing the entire time." The shoulders also go really well with the helm, which helps the mask blend into the wardrobe a bit better than it would have otherwise. The glow on the sword a nice touch, as it is adds a cool contrast to the red outfit.

Loot Tables – Up to Date

We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails recently about the loot tables – whether it’s been people providing us information or people asking us where x or y drops. We understand that everyone wants to know where their upgrades come from and as such we’ve been focusing on getting them up to date for the latest raids. They should remain current from now until at least the end of Tier 2 – every time you’ll see a new item discovered and added to the database, it will now include which boss it dropped from. Keep in mind – this doesn’t mean the loot tables are complete – items still have to be discovered and as they are, the loot tables (and our best in slot’s item tooltips) will tell you where they dropped from.

You also may notice that the loot tables contain their upgraded items as well – we didn’t do that previously but this round decided to do that as we sometimes got questions on items that were upgraded versions of their counterpart which dropped from a certain boss.…

New Conquest: Steppes of Infinity – Daglar Posts Details

Details on Conquest: Steppes of Infinity

Daglar has posted some details outlining how the new Conquest: Steppes of Infinity map will work and how each team gains points by using charges on on the extractors between Fort Brevo and Fort Antapo. The end of the match will see a familiar slaughter of Foci and possible Boss spawn. It should be available on the PTS starting tomorrow and may have other aspects introduced as well as it is developed.

 Originally Posted by Daglar

Shooting for a release some time during 2.5 (but likely not at the initial launch). I’ve pushed the rough draft for this up onto the test branch, that means it will likely be available on Thursday. Objectives in the rough draft: Take charges from Fort Brevo to Fort Antapo (and the reverse) to score points for your team. You must use the charges on one of multiple extractors (non attackable) to gain points – this can be interrupted. This is the only current scoring mechanism, though others may be added as it is iterated on.
