    Default Expert and Raid rifts without souls!!!

    From Addition 3 on PTS:

    "* You may now purchase Expert and Raid Rift Lures if you have the required Planar Notoriety of the appropriate type - or purchase husks which no longer have a Notoriety requirement to obtain."

    1k for expert lures, 2.5k for raids.

    There is still a use for them.

    The original husks will still have the same costs (250 for expert and 500 for raid) but no longer require any reputation and still use the souls. These new ones still require the reputation and cost 1000 and 2500 planarite but do not require souls.

    And they are making planarite drop less so it will become a little more rare. The result is that you got to choose between using your souls or spending more planarite.

    This sounds interesting. I'm not on the PTR, could someone of you please test:
    -how much planarite do you get for a minor lvl 50 Shimmersand earth rift?
    -how much planarite do we get for the rare planar currencies?

    Sounds nice overall. It will give people a reason to do join in on invasion events and overall it will massively increase the number of raid rifts done.

    I only had a chance to look at the freemarch rare planar goods vendor and a bag of 25 planarite was 1 blue stone. I'd hope it scales up in the higher level zones.

    Didn't test the rifts, but I saw someone say only 7 planarite from a non elite invasion when it used to be ~40.

    Do you know if those husks are persistent or does it get consumed when opening the rift? Single use sounds pretty harsh.

    They are all single-use. You combine a Husk with 5 Malformed (expert) or 10 Corrupted (raid) Souls to form an Expert/Raid Rift Lure. Use the Lure to open an Expert or Raid rift. In this case, they're giving you a way to shortcut the need the Souls, which was already not that big of a deal. Still, will make getting those last few essences for my sigils that much easier.

    Thank you for the info

    That was what I thought but hoped otherwise. In that light I think it's nice indeed that you can get those soulless ones too, no matter the higher cost.

    No, just the blues. Amount you get subject to change of course.

    So has anyone tested how much planarite they've been getting from rifts etc on the test server? Is it worth keeping corrupted souls around after the patch? I know you can use them, but if planarite is that much easier, I forsee souls taking a huge hit in price on the AH. Might be worthwhile to sell them before the patch if that's the case.

    It's on test now. If it launches with 1.2 is up to Trion.

    As for how much planarite from rifts, I haven't had a chance to test it personally but I did see someone say in 50 chat that instead of the 40-50 he would usually get from a 3-4 mob invader force, he only got 7.

    Patch message says invasions from zonewides have been nerfed, and if you have ever seen a rift spawning an invasion every 5 seconds, it'd be obvious why this is done.
