    Default Keyens our Class balancer developer has left RIFT...........

    https://twitter.com/TheRealKeyens/st...79340088975360

    He was the only one balancing our classes since Vladd left that job to him around patch 4.1

    Now we got none unless Vladd is forced to take over

    This is depressing sigh.......

    Really bizarre that such a big change happened and there is no official thread on the forums regarding it.

    Also, who is going to balance the classes now? What changes were in the oven when Keyens left? It would be great to get some official word on this.

    I send my deepest thank you for all the efforts brought forward.

    Hopefully Vladd might pick up the slack until they find a replacement.

    At least last time when Vladd was in charge, Rogue didnt NB everything, primalist didnt have extreme stupidity level of single target dps, and warriors didnt have to heal to do dps.

    Rip Rift, with keyens being our 1 main guy that worked on all the souls and balance, I wouldn't be surprised if nothing changes for a very long time, unless trion had other devs working on all souls? maybe vladd? but doubt he would have time to do what keyens did.

    or unless with challenger servers being a thing now, a total reset, so class balance isn't a thing.

    idk =/ just a sad time for RIFT


    ... all the best keyens o/

    @Keyens all the best in your new job.

    @Trion hope we also get a official company note about the information and the future.

    Really. Balanced everything you say. Well us clerics have been the lowest class over time by far so no loss here.

    Agreed, last time I checked they said clerics cannot do more than 700k dps unless they are unicorn like Bubbles.

    That doesn't bode well, the game hasn't been in the best of places recently. Class balance has been a mess for far too long. Wonder what this means as a whole for the game?

    This is the fourth dev to leave Rift for other projects in about a year with no backfill. Kerilar, Darkmoon, Gingers and now Keyens are off to other projects.

    Good luck in your new position Keyens.

    Take care Mr.TheDataShows. Thanks for the memes, class balance, healer changes, and mystic archer.
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, write guides on the forums.
