    Lightbulb RIFTstream What’s Coming in October



    This week Yaviey will speak to the dev team about what’s coming up in October for RIFT.

    Jennifer “Yaviey” Bridges, RIFT’s Community Manager will be joined by members of the RIFT dev team to discuss what’s coming up in RIFT over the next month. Together they will discuss the upcoming wardrobe sale in RIFT, Extra Life, Twitch Con, and a little bit about Autumn Harvest. The devs will also answer your questions live on stream. Last but not least, Yaviey will be on the EU shards spreading corgi madness for a chance to win an eternal item. Watch us live on Twitch for a chance to win in-game prizes.

    RIFT LIVESTREAM

    Jennifer, it is really nice and important to make a Stream about the upcoming wardrobe sale in RIFT and many more but it seems that’s many player are extremely frustrated about balancing.

    I'm a geared warrior in my guild and a lowered gear Primalist is out parsing me on a dummy. He has no eternal, no focus, poor essences, low cp, and really low fragments. I've 5/6 eternal weapon, all lvl 15 fragments except 2, all upgraded essences with BIS greater, CP soft capped, and newer melee trinket.
    It's extremely frustrating with all the work I have put into my rotation, gear, rep, going against a much lower gear Primalist.
    Trion- it feels unfair and deflating the class balance has not been solved now.
    There are a lot of player like Ewa. The community makes a lot of Threads at the forum and helps with tools like:

    One class is so overpowered that they are able to solo parts of the current content - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg6tmFuJEsU&t

    Whats the current state:

    We don't care about wardrobe.
    We NEED proper class balancing and bug fixing.

    So EU servers get loving but not NA servers for Eternal drops? How do we know when you come to the NA servers?

    Class balancing is done in some regard every week. Also, a completely different set of developers are in charge of that than have worked on wardrobes or are on this week's stream. We're taking a look at the feedback but can only focus on a little bit at a time and right now it was determined to work on wardrobe stuff. We appreciate all the feedback given on class balancing and understand that you are frustrated that at this moment, we're discussing something else, but we will get to other parts of the game in time.

    We appreciate that you might not care about wardrobes, but others do. We try to give a little bit of everything in our weekly streams because we have players who like different aspects of our game more than others.

    Class balancing is an ongoing topic that we look at every week. Just take a look at the patch notes. Additionally, we have gone to great strides to work on bugs as you can see by our new bug reports section where we actively communicate bug status with players.

    We switch off EU to NA and NA to EU each time we do this. Last week NA got some love so we started with EU this week. And as for times the devs get online to the other set of servers, it's when they can. I personally came on around 2:30 PM PDT, after I had wrapped up some important work I had to do and finally was able to get lunch. These are meant to be more surprise fun things than a set time all the time.

    While I think everybody appreciates the fixing of bugs, balance has been horrid for months on end, and there is nothing being done to address this. But since you said "look at the patch notes", here we go:

    Hotfix #12 9/27/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #11 9/20/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #10 9/14/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #9 9/13/2017 - A few bugfixes, no balance changes
    Hotfix #8 9/6/2017 - Bug fixes, Primalist nerf part 2, its still overpowered but hey you tried...
    Hotfix #7 8/23/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #6 8/16/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #5 8/9/2017 - Primalist nerf to MW (too bad thats not the problematic skill), nerf (?) to Marksmen (also not the problem with rogues being op)
    Hotfix #4 8/3/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #2 7/26/2017 - No balance changes at all
    Hotfix #1 7/21/2017 - No balance changes at all
    RIFT 4.2: CELESTIAL STORM 7/20/2017 - Last balance changes that put us into the place we're now

    So there you go, except two feeble attempts to nerf a primalist spec that's still op there were pretty much no balance changes for over 2 months. Leather wearers are still tremendously OP, yet you say you're looking at balancing every week, which raises the question - do you really think class balance is fine the way it is now? If you do, please tell us.

    The changes from Hotfix#11 5/31/2017 overpower Rogue: Nightblade and removed three other class from doing damage in raids.

    One the other side - is it normal that a rogue can solo a raid-golem from the current content: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg6tmFuJEsU&t

    I have to agree with others here.

    It's not about whether having a wardrobe sale or anything like that is a good idea. I don't want to ruin anyone elses fun. This is about timing. Right now Rift is in a real bad place. We had the worst expansion release I have ever seen, we have no notable 5 man content, we have a new zone that was supposed to be cool dynamic content but other than looking really nice, only has dailies and rare farm. There is little casual content to do outside of raids, we have multiple souls which are useless for each calling and class balance is so off. The fragment system needed a revamp months ago, the eternal quest drives new players away and the guild system hasnt seen any notable upgrades in years. For all these problems, with hotfix after hotfix of no balance updates or tweaks to systems, having livestreams talking about a sale on the store is just really bad timing and looks like you are taking the micky to some people... The actions by Trion and from the attitude I am seeing show a real lack of self awareness with regards to the game issues. If I had any hair left I would be pulling it out with how frustrated I am with Rift.

    For some reason I still hold out hope we can turn this round somehow but I just can't see any intention to do so by Trion.

    They will make little or no changes to primalist while they are making money on selling the calling . I see the credit price for it has dropped a bit so maybe once the sales die out they will make some changes . That's the way Trion works , you create a class , buff the heck out of it so everyone buys it , make your money then nerf the crap out of it and rinse and repeat .
