    Default Intrepid Rise of the Phoenix Goes LIVE May 10/17!

    The title says it all, but you can read the short blog here!

    http://www.trionworlds.com/rift/en/2...live-may-1017/

    The raid will be switched on soon after the patch tomorrow, at the same time on both NA and EU servers - we are aiming for 12:00 noon PDT.

    Thank you to all the hardy folk who helped test this Intrepid raid on PTS over the past few weeks!

    I don't think the title says it all.

    I hope the Devs erred on the side of caution and turned the dial up to eleven, much easier to slowly dial it back when the tears become a flood rather than turn the dial up (which has never happened with a raid).

    That flood of tears will surely come as there are now only about 2 specs that have a chance of meeting the dps check on the first boss.
    I wonder what happened to the idea of easing more people into raiding? Putting an insurmountable dps check on the first boss will scare 99% of those 'new' raiders away for sure.

    any chances for some earlier patch notes so we can know the rest of the changes also

    any class balances before raid is nice to know

    Does anyone know the DPS requirements for the new raid?
    If I remember correctly, Keyens mentioned in a livestream 550 K DPS, but that was before the raid was released on the test server.

    Vladd said today that you will need to sustain 4.3 million DPS for 27 seconds. So yeah it seems like Eternals are overkill and it's another easy raid.

    We will see with the new balancing. I cant speak for other classes but rogues not getting poison procs from the eternal is a pretty hefty nerf on our dps.

    If this is just another walk through 'raid' it will be a killer. Easy is not better it just makes people bored and walk away.

    REMINDER: iROTP is slated to be opened around noon today, PDT.

    This is definitely not a "walk through" raid. We do expect to hear some say it's too easy, some will say it's too hard, and a few will say it's just right. The Devs will be looking at all the data as players progress through it.

    A heartfelt thank you to all those who helped run it on PTS!
