    is there a reason why the flaming skull and other planar skulls from halloween are not available?

    I would really like to get my Forgemaster's Inferno helmet wardrobe skin and the Helm of the Demon Lord

    any chance you might add the zone locked adventure wardrobe drops from IAs that are nearly imposaible to get anymore, things like Ancient Kelari Busby

    I can imagine they want to keep some of the wardrobe valid for autumn event (quest)

    I think some of those masks were new previous autumn and it would just be too soon to make them available again at this time.

    I think 1 or 2 of the skulls were tied to credit packs as an incentive during one of the previous autumn harvests (during nightmare tide) so that may be partially why. Then again I'm pretty sure they've been available for individual purchase in the harvest event since, but I don't remember since I've had them from the first time around.

    On that same note, I was hoping the Green Budgie mask would be up for sale.

    Yeah, the budgie was one of the masks that only came out of the lockbox for that years harvest.

At the very least the costume rolls should be limited to the seasonal costumes specifically if they're going to stay behind lockboxes, but these were all available for individual credit purchases on PTS the few times that the event section was up on the store so i'm not sure why so many were thrown into the box. My assumption is that they had to put something in there with the broom.

    Put them back up as individual purchases please.
    I'm glad they're slowly stepping away from this. Fingers crossed anyway. Either way it still would've bee nice to have those up as individual purchases for the wardrobe sale.

    Now, having said that, everyone that works on RIFT here is deeply dedicated to doing the best they can for the game. To that end, most of think those dragon masks and steampunky backpacks are super cool. If you don't, fair enough! We hope to make something more to your taste in future.

    The current content plan is in the recent Development Letter. Not all things will come to Prime and Live equally or at the same time. We hear you that you want more information, but we do not have it to give, yet. We are just heading into our mid-term planning meeting now to discuss these very issue, but I can't guarantee that you'll get more news immediately. Dev will talk about it when they are ready. =)

    Prime does not offer a wide range of mounts for sale, so this was a chance to offer something cool and newish to be earned in game. We'll definitely review the event to see how many people went to the effort of earning it.

    We don't offer extensive wardrobe items for sale on Prime either, because they are meant to drop in game more than on Live. Putting this list of over 4,000 items (Dev's recent estimate) at 25% off seemed like a great way for people to round out their styles on Live.


    Important side note on feedback: please keep it constructive and related to the items or issues you like or do not like. Don't insult employees, as we take a very dim view of that here. Every soul at this company is dedicated to doing the best they possibly can, and insults help no one.

    If "the team" was deeply dedicated, the gamble boxes would be removed, balance would happen, frags would have been fixed and prime would never have been.

    If Yaviey does so good at collecting up "what players want" then the devs need their ears cleaned out. (we all know devs cant give us everything we want)

    Before you even say this is not constructive, is the main goals your customers want, and i am voicing yet again, not constructive??

    Now, having said that, (yes im copying you), can we have some real updates to timelines for balance and frags and that we are being listened to?

    Totally ignoring us after buying up assets for another company, giving prime more content (lifter, sparkles) just screams at us you dont care as a company. If its true, just say it and move on, if not true, put up some dates and deadlines and be adult and do work or hire people to do work and make customers happy.

    Loot crates have basically been gone for a bit now. The only active ones are quite old, and basically still there because there are systems using them (weekly login bonuses) that would need to be adjusted for their removal, and that would be development resources taken from other places. But all recent mounts have been direct sale instead.


    Balance has been getting very actively worked on. You can check out a ton of changes on the PTS or check out this thread:
    http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...20-2018-a.html

    Balance work will not end with the release of 4.5, because there is still much to be done. But we have resources working on class ability stuff full time (and doing nothing but class balance and ability fixes).


    Frags I am starting to work on personally. I would have loved to have gotten it in for 4.5, but the risk factors of doing major changes to that system are high. So as soon as 4.5 is out the door (very soon), I will be doing some changes to that system immediately and getting it up to PTS so people can test it out.

    Among the frag changes being planned is splitting out tanking frags vs non-tank frags so that a terrible stat mix won't show up at the end to ruin an otherwise great frag. I will start a thread on the subject shortly after 4.5 is out the door to consolidate feedback.

    We will have to agree to disagree on Prime.

    Feedback identifying the many problems inherent in the fragment system was given during the very limited PTS testing of SFP and the following year and a half. The rework was promised well over a year ago. You're a bit late on this one, chum. You are the last dedicated member of the fire brigade presiding over the burning of Rome asking the charred corpses of the citizens how they would have preferred being immolated.

    Frag rework needs to be done to attract new players.

    The majority of current raid players don't need it beacuse we all have full dps 15 lvl ones but new players still need it.

    It does make me wonder how Salvaratrix can get to this problem, note some of the main issues with it fairly quickly, talks about getting changes on the PTS for it while other people were stumped by it for 16 months...

    Anyway... this is great for new players and current players if they need to change fragments. Having easier access to fragments in the first would also really help. I posted previously about other ways to purchase coffers other than with expert marks i.e. celestial fragments and raid 1 currency. I think that would help a lot as people tend to have a lot of these currencies.

    Would the changes be retroactive? So if we have a level 15 dps fragment already with a naff 5th stat will it change to a dps stat?

    My thoughts on Prime are well known so gonna avoid opening up that box as I am in a fairly good mood today.

    Loot crates as in:
    Vostigar jewelry. Will it be a tank one (preserver), sorta tank one (hero), sorta dps (overlord), or dps (conq) and ya i might have gotten the last two backwards.
    Frag boxes (the ones from rep in the store for tower fragments)
    will i get a tank one? a dps one? one for my class even? (str/dex is useless as a cleric and theres no basic check for that even. sure, BoA but not all of us play alts)

    Balance could be started just by taking away that redheaded stepchild warrior heal spec that they all take for the dps boost. Something similar for clerics on prime (sentinel) got fixed pretty darned quick for the same reasons, yet it lives on for warriors on live.

    As was said, frags have been broken since testing for starfall. the feedback was ignored. flat out.

    we all fear that the feedback on the current pts balance thread will be ignored. same with legendary abilities.

    its almost not worth typing

    IIRC, the employee who created fragments moved to another area in Trion and other assets have left and joined the company.


    I feel confident when Salvatrix says fragments are personally scheduled to be worked on.

    Yeah for the record when Salvatrix says she is on a task I am always confident it will get done.

    She is getting the grief from people as she is one of the only devs ( full stop? :S ) that posts. I would like to see Archonix or Amary (if she is still there) posting more regularly so this doesn't happen as much.

    Anyway some things are getting looked at which is good for the game. I will help test any changes made to the PTS. I think you can get plat for free on pts right so we can spam level fragments to see the changes.

    No, it would not be retroactive.

    The way frag stats are seeded is very convoluted. If I change the way stats are determined for fragments already in player possession, the BEST case scenario were I to do so is that those stats would completely change for all characters. The worst case scenario is that the change ends up corrupting the data of any character with fragments into a state that they could not log on and/or bring down the shards.

    Like I said - the changes involve a lot of risk which is why I opted not to race the rework out under the wire for 4.5 (I looked to see if I could), and instead decided to get 4.5 safely out the door (coming SOON!), and make it the first thing I do next while all the data threads are fresh in my head.

    So the changes would apply to all new fragments and old fragments would be technically "retired" in that the ones already in play would remain as they are, but that the old style would not no longer drop anywhere.

    I will also further review the upgrade costs, and we are looking at some other angles and improvements as well. I do remember people asking about frags from boxes matching the class that bought them, and that seems reasonable. A few other ideas too. The first thrust will be getting tank vs non-tank frags split out though, get that up to PTS, and then start a new thread for feedback and suggestions at that time.
