    Red face RIFTstream THURSDAY April 13: Rise of the Phoenix



    We are livestreaming on THURSDAY this week instead of Friday, which is a holiday. Join Brasse and Rich "Icarus" Byon for a chat about the updated Rise of the Phoenix raid, coming soon to RIFT!

    Rise of the Phoenix was first released as a Level 50 10-man raid, in 2011.

    Icarus will walk us through the zone and talk about how it is being tweaked for the modern generation of level 70 RIFT raiders!

    Prep for this raidstream by posting your raid-related questions to this forum thread!

    Will it be an adaption of the old RotP or will we see new mechanics, perhaps an extra boss?

    - Will iRotp use old loot system or reward charges?
    - How many drops per boss?
    - Weekly lockout?
    - What tier and what level of fragments are recommended for the raid ?
    - Will the new ranged weapon and helm from patch 4.1 still be BiS after we cleared the raid?

    Looking forward to the livestream.

    The engines are soulbound so why are they so rare ? People on the forum have report 30+ dungeon runs without an engine and i can attest is is true. Will this continue in the new raid ?

    Also, why is the cape not included in the raiding equipment you can purchase with the new raid currency.

    btw, any plans for a TD Master Mode ?

    New raid isn't LFR so its weekly lockout and Master Loot.

    Cape has never been for marks? why would they start now?

    This is more towards the new zone.. Will there be 3 new weekly raid bosses like we had in Dendrome and PTW?

    - When will testing be open and will developers be available to test with us?
    - What's the expected release date?
    - What level fragments is this being tuned for, and how much DPS per damage dealer?
    - Will this be the only T1 raid?
    - Will this drop relic or T1 fragments?

    Unrelated to raid:

    Can we please have an option to disable animations for upgrading fragments?

    Nope on PTS they are already outdated by IRotP gear by several hundred stats.

    will you be keeping the original level 50 raid in game, along with all the cheevos we aquired from it.

    will you add a different pet to the conqueror achievement so we dont get the same facepalm as we did with IGP when we had pets sat in our mailboxes for months.

    will the 3 big rock dudes still be wondering around the place dropping nice rings/earrings/necks?

    thank you muchly

    How is the loot handled with the 10 man only raid system and halved boss numbers per tier?
    Will there be double as much loot per boss or will it be at least twice as much grinding than before?

    It was stated previously that this is just a scaled up version of the level 50 raid. It has the same drops, but scaled up and it uses the old looting system. I'm pretty sure this is just the filler while they work on the new raid coming in fall which will (nothing officially stated) likely be the current IRC / LFR system. Whether it has multiple difficulties (fingers crossed) remains to be seen.

    Questions
    1. What are the gear requirements going to be? Are we going to need to have our LFR gear fully upgraded to make certain checks in iRotp?

    (Unrelated to raid)
    2. Why was there such a hard gate put on the eternal weapon in regard to the wicket minion? I understand trying to save people from themselves, but if they're willing to put in the extra time and effort to get it out of the way then they should be allowed to. That is my own personal opinion of course. One that others might share though.

    Please, please, please say this this is going to retain the same difficulty level as it presented us when we were Level 50 with GSB and the 2-10 man raids (DH & GP) equipment?

    As one mentioned, everything is the same, just beefed up for Level 70 characters now. IIRC, I don't recall there being any Chest (Legs also?) pieces in RotP, will the current TD Chest (and Legs?) then continue being BiS? Just thinking out loud in preparation for the new raid due out this fall sometime, and if the Hit requirement will go up to access that new raid.

    Tartartic Depths was an introductory raid and unfortunately not enough of a reason to convince our guild's top raiders to return to the game because it wasn't challenging for most of us. Will Rise of the Phoenix make it any easier for me to persuade them to come back?
