    Default RIFTSTREAM 07/07: Celestial Storm IA & Raid Rifts!

    This Friday, Tacitus and Icarus join Brasse to reveal some 4.2: Celestial Storm features!

    Tacitus and Icarus will raise the curtain on*the new Instant Adventure coming to Gedlo Badlands (and a bit of advance info on the one being built for Vostigar Peaks) as well as Raid Rifts coming with the release of Celestial Storm.

    The update is*right around the corner, on July 19th! We'll have a Celestial Storm pre-launch stream on July 14th, and a Summerfest stream the following week on the 21st!

    Lore fiends will enjoy a heaping helping of story on July*28th - we didn't want to spoil the story for folks in advance!

    If you have questions pertaining to the new IAs or Raid Rifts, please post them here.
    On this stream, we will NOT be able to address classes/souls/balance (Keyens is still working on the final balance pass for 4.2, discussions underway on the PTS forums), or Planar Fragments (Vladd will work on that after 4.2 launches).

    Raid rifts:
    • How will the drops from raid rifts compare to Queen's Foci drops?
    • Will there be a weekly and/or daily quest(s) to close raid rifts like in the past?
    • Are Individual Reward Charges used in any way by raid rifts?

    IAs:
    • Will there be a specific queue for the new IAs?
    • Is there a minimum level to join them, since Starfall Prophecy of Ahnket is now free anyway?
    • Are there any new vanity items that drop from them (wardrobes, mounts, dimension items, etc.) ?

    Raid Rifts -

    Will non raid members be able to mooch as is the case with CRIFTS?

    How many can one do each week?

    What currency is to be used for the lure?

    Raid Rifts -
    Are we going to see a better "easyness" or at least challenge that increases said rewards?
    Because for NMT, all anyone wanted to do was SoL and if you wanted to do the others, you had to form a group of known good raiders.
    Will we get more then 3 like we got during NMT?
    And lastly, can we have a little bit of a guide written by a DEV on the forums, that explains if Intercepts/Interupts/Purges need to happen?
    I'm ok with progression on this stuff, but I'm tired of feeling like the content is being made and then left behind.
    The Guide you guys did for LFR was awesome and the write up is hardly seen! Maybe make something on your website that we can look the stuff up on. Or give us the resources to be able to add it to our fan sites. (All this for Raid Rifts btw)

    I would skip straight to the question: How many IRCs will the new raid rifts take?

    Will PTS get to preview and test these features before Live? If so, when? (Ignore if it hits PTS between now and Friday of course)

    Will the raid rifts be 20-man open world content like they always have been or will they be instanced and 10-man to fit the current state of raiding?

    Can we expect higher quality Fragments from raid rifts and the new IAs?

    I didnt see an official Trion-Thread about balancing at the PTS-Forum. It seems that the devs only talk on discord about balancing and some player post the changes for the community. And this is the final balance for 4.2. ?

    Feel free to poke me in the arm any time I do so.

    Some GREAT questions here, folks, thank you!

    (For Sing, there are all manner of threads, official and non-official, on the PTS forum about souls - they are all relevant.)

    (For Mizuki, Celestial Storm will be on PTS before launch, sooner rather than later - we won't get much notice when it's time, so watch for it!)

    Something a little unrelated but inquiring minds must know...

    How does Icarus keep his hair so amazing and shiny?
    The hair envy is strong!

    Raid Rifts:
    • Are they designed for 10 man or 20 man?
    • Are they open world or instanced?
    • Traditional group loot or personal loot with IRCs?
    • What sort of loot? essences or gear as well or something else?
    • How are lures squired? pnanarite or some other currency? Tied to a rep?

    Instant Adventures:
    • Any new rewards to entice more players to do them?
    • Xp increased to help suplement general questing while leveling?
    • Will Gedlo IAs give rep for the zone?

    The Raid Rift & IA questions have already been asked but I have a few others that would love answers to.
    • Will the daily rewards calendar be updated since all players can access PoA now?
    • Will there be a Commendation of renown vendor in place for PoA factions?
    • Will daily/weekly rewards loot table get updated to include Ethereal shards and remove lock box keys?
    • Are you considering putting XP back for crafting at a reduced rate?
    • In a livestream a few months back I noticed a Nightmare Rift in Scatherran Forest, can we expect NMRs on the comet soon?
    • It was mentioned that another event like “Skull” would be implemented in Ashenfell, is this still on the table?

    Thanks in advance

    Default PA and Ascended powers

    Will there be any updating of PA or Ascended powers ? Most Ascended powers and buffs are pretty much useless since they haven't kept up with new level caps . Also any timeline on when right side Frags will be unlocked ? THANKS !
