    Default Rift 2.8 coming aug. 6!

    Across Telara, ominous events portend the arrival of living nightmares tying the fate of the Ascended to a dream-born invasion rippling through the Plane of Water!

    Follow Kira and Uriel in a new Tale of the Deep lore piece setting RIFT 2.8: Madness Wakes into action, then tune in to our full update coverage next week!

    Very cool, nice to see Kira and Uriel again in some recent lore. Hope to see more of the old characters in 2.8, 3.0, and whatever might come between.

    There are two people I really hope are there when we start going into the Plane of Water.

    I really liked that lore piece. I wish some of this stuff made it into in game cinematics or something. Having this play out inside a chronicle for instance would have been badass.

    Will pyromancer get released as their overpowered state on PTS?

    And any plan on fixing overpowered mage hybrids since warriors are being nerfed across the board on all of their raid viable dps specs.

    Stormbinger's getting a big nerf.
    • Fix to Lightning Blade gaining dmg from talent it wasn't supposed to.
    • Voltaic Strength increase dmg for half the previous amount for all non-Stormcaller abilities
    • Conductive Medium now require the reallocation of 2 points.
    All in all Stormbinger is taking a 10% dps nerf bat to the face.

    Any news on Pyromancer? Currently on PTS it blows 61 paragon 61 shaman and 61 assassin right out of water let along other ranged specs. You dont think its over the top?

    So is this just for Defiant? Or am I confused? I mean, I see Kira and Uriel around the world on my Guardians, but of course they're hostile....

    It's using Defiant characters to tell a story, the patch is for everyone.

    Aug 6 is a big earlier than I thought it could be. Was thinking closer to September. Cool.

    Looking like Oct for 3.0 possibly... especially if some features/content is held back for a 3.1 soon-ish after.
