    Default January 2015 Update(s) to the PTS

    [February 2015 Update(s) can be found here]

    January 2015 Update(s) to the PTS. I'll be editing this post with all the patch changes.

    Updated to: Jan 26-27th 2015
    TEST-301-26-B-977140 & TEST-301-27-A-977658
    Size: ~200MB + 140MB.
    Briefly:
    • New Currency Caps. VS: 47k, ACM: 20k for Patrons. For Non-Patrons: VS: 45k, ACM: Unknown, probably 17.5k. (anyone a non-Patron on PTS can confirm please?)
    • Cost reduction for World and Dungeon gear. Heavy reductions.
    • New Wardrobe Bundles: Flamebound Steel, Earthbound Steel and Seabound Steel Bundles. There's also a Riding Bundle on the RIFT Store -> Wardrobe.
    • As Slipmat mentioned above, there's new PUMPKIN and Crucia achieves, including Hard Mode Crucia. Some interesting mechanics just from reading the achievement text.
    • Minion Time Display. Your current adventures now display what time the adventure taken was (i.e. 5min, 15min, 8hr, 10hr/etc) as well as time remaining.
    • Greater Essence Upgrade Cost Reduction. As snipebad mentioned before, Greater Essence drops from Raid Rifts are getting an Illusory Motes cost upgrade.

    TEST-301-23-A-976042 & TEST-301-24-A-976582

    Briefly:
    • Rogue and Warrior Class Changes - Marksman, Reaver and Tempest Soul Changes. (Thanks to snipebad, haybale and ttlyevil for the info!)
    • Some new Achievements. Main difference is the removal of all The Yrlwalach fail achieves for Mount Sharax - all turning to Legacy.

    • Two new Chronicle dailies - one in Chronicle: Rhen of Fate for killing bosses in hard mode and the other is a general Level 65 chronicle daily that rotates between the level 65 chronicles. (Thanks to Slipmat for the info!)

    • New Dimension Items: A Bank access item and Level 67 practice dummies.
    • Molten Thresher Mount spotted on PTS. No idea how or when you'll be able to obtain one on Live.

    • The Crafting window now has a 'Favorites' tab.
    • Tyrant's Throne, the new island slated for Patch 3.1 is now up at (6271, 9093). You'll have to swim there for now. Heavily WIP with no NPCs, missing textures and lots of barren land.
    • Portrait Frame change is now via right-clicking your portrait rather than in Settings.
    • Dimensions Permissions now has a new 'Special' column that you can edit as well as a Ban List that you can edit. Currently WIP so the buttons aren't working right now.

    • Possible 'levitate' and 'disc'-based mounts based on character configuration files. Probably not named that way though.
    • A few Rifts-based thumbnails for the various Planes.
    • A skin that is probably a Storm Legion armor, mob or mount. It's metallic with purple glows. Could potentially be a metallic Crucia (like a Cyborg Frieza).

    • New PvP Warfront icons likely added to Warfront Scoreboard for some new objective-based categories.
    • "Heroic Text" screen message and some Gender buttons. No clue what they are for.

    The new PA cap increase is in. It is 3 new trees and 150 points to fill all of them. Like the last 3 trees added, the new ones also require max pa in the original trees. The new trees have everything you would expect them to have- 3.0 level consumes and stats. As a cleric I can now get the glove enchant to gloves that adds 30end- this was only available to non casters before I think.

    They added new features to the crafting windows that I like a lot. You can fill a check box next to all your favorite recipes and they are added to a new separate Favorites crafting book found in your dropdown list.

    New dimension permissions is still a work in progress and is not yet functioning.

    Attempt to change your player portrait...where did it go?! ;)

    Full details on all the UI changes for 3.1 will be coming soon to a blog post on the website.

    That's awesome news. PA increase! Can't wait to replace my Flaring Sigil for open world content!

    Crafting window UI favorites is also much-requested and glad they're bringing that in. Hope they eventually get to putting a search bar and favorites for Titles/Mounts/Pets as well.

    Default Is it just a dream?

    After the arriving of the Ascended at Omicron Harbor(6015,8799) they will find an island of the Storm Legion-Crucia`s hideout.
    Defend the inhabitants of the island against the Storm Legion and their evil creatures.

    Upon entering the Tyrant`s Forge you will have to Crucia`s troops, generals and evil creations only Fate will now which challenges lies on the way to the top of the Tyrantīs Forge.
    Can the Ascended stop Crucia or it is just another trap from her?

    Disclaimer: Everything could change and not be true....I don`t have control over moving islands :P

    The Cave of Infinity awaits you?

    @Soulshield - Thanks for the info! Did you get that from a questgiver or just swimming over there?

    Someone in lv65 chat on pts told something about Omicron Harbor and I asked him about it...seems that he swam over there...found no npc, but I would guess you will have a npc at Port Scuddra who takes you there later.

    By the placeholders I would say that the Tyrant`s Forge is 10 man sliver with "climbing up" the island to get to the top with the last boss of the instance.

    P.S. Would be epic if there would be underwater Volans(they paid credits for the underwater training) around the Island xD

    TF should be a 20m if I'm not mistaken.

    I don`t know at the moment it has the same achivements as RoF...from SL you could say this says it will be a 10 man, but also could be a hint that it will have 4 bosses and the achievement numbers are more likely to RoF than MS ^^

    I see. Yea, there's no NPCs except one placeholder one (probably for size comparison; saw it before used during Nightmare Tide beta). Port Scuddra certainly makes sense.

    I can also see Tyrant's Forge starting off somewhere close to those weird 'water hole structures' at The Storm Cage. That said, if this is a 20-man it might just begin at the main building entrance at Queen's Crucible since 20-man's usually don't re-use open world areas but are instead inside buildings/caves that you can't access in the open world.

    As for Volan - there's a new "Insight Into Madness" zone event achieve under Planes -> Water called "Complete the 'Leviathan' zone event in Goboro Reef".

    Trion mentioned this Leviathan a few times and a twitter post back in July said:
    "The skelf originally hail from the Komoho ocean, they are pilots to a leviathan avatar of Draum".
    https://twitter.com/Riftgame/status/485090705992212482

    I'm hoping this boss is pretty big or has multiple phases to it; although I doubt it would be on the level of Volan since MikeD mentioned they weren't going to do another Volan.

    The current achievements listed are only for 1 boss. It is going to be a 20m.

    Yep, so far the achievements for the new 20-man just list one boss, Johan, who has eight ones alone for him

    Also up are the achievements for the new Chronicle, Rhen of Fate, unfortunately they are just a copy and paste of the achievements from the 10-man Sliver version, apart from killing the rare spawn.
