    Default New raid rifts

    I saw them in the shop after update and we done them with a pug.
    Was a lot of fun to see that these rifts could actually kill people if they make major mistakes(ignoring mechanics).

    One thing which I missed is a raid warning for the blue or red cast of the endboss of the IS rift.

    For people loots: IS rift seems to drop AP/SP essences and the Dendrome rift seems to drop CP essences.

    Have fun with deathly mechanics :3

    P.S.:No one cares but btw world first?

    It's interesting that these weren't mentioned in patch notes, maybe an oversight or mistake?

    Oops, completing the wrong daily was an oversight on my part. Enjoy it while you can!

    Seriously. You don't need a raidwarning for something like that. It's pretty clear what you need to do. Even without instructions I did it right the first time. It's been ages since we had rifts with teeth.

    I only did it once now and I just ran in the field of the color which was mentioned first in his cast and survived it, but you can`t read the whole cast too much text.

    I did one of them earlier and it was good fun!

    Big thumbs up to the inclusion of some mechanics

    I think we only wiped twice and the winning bidder on one of the new lesser paid 1 rex, so nice to keep the economy going too ;)

    They all had threatening mechanics once upon a time. But it slowly melts away as the indirect nerfs/player buffs piles up over time.

    It is a nice change of pace, though.

    Has anyone gotten anything outside of essences from them?
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    I think the best part of these is similar to some of the t2 bosses where the mechanics done right are survivable or one shot as opposed to now just do whatever and it can be healed through ignored.

    I found the one in steppes to be significantly more fun than dendrome but overall it's nice to do something semi challenging outside of raiding with great rewards

    Sorta, there are a number of raid boss mechanics that you cannot ever overgear enough to just ignore.

    They know how to make those, you see them in a number of bosses in ID and a handful in HK.

    I personally think they choose not to use those types of mechanics for most of the bosses in any given raid just so it would naturally get easier over time.

    But something like HM Gelidra? Yeah, there's no overgearing that fight. If you aren't handling the mechanics correctly you will wipe

    They sprinkled a bit of that into these raid rifts, and its kinda nice... 'cept maybe if you happen to wander past one of them and get tagged with that fire-beam that does a 10k dmg dot on you, lol. Then it sucks.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~
