    And if it's not obvious, it probably means you need this:

    Thanks for the info Ianto Jones! Finished downloading and got the error. Downloading that vcredist_x86 solved the issue.

    Quite a large file size. Some information has been provided by Trion that you can check out:
    • 3.2 Wardrobe System is up. Feedback and bug reports here.
    • A bunch of Craft-related additions/changes. Detailed list here.
    • A whole bunch of Dimension-related additions. Detailed list here.

    I'll have a full PTS Update (and Datamining) article up at some point. Probably will take a while so expect it some time tomorrow.

    Wow...

    Spoiler!


    I don't know if I can...go through all that. 468 PAKs with god knows how many tens of thousands of files contained within. I'll give it my best shot, although I'll probably start off with the easiest stuff to view and post those up, and then slowly move on from there.

    The new nightmare seals are coming together with NM6 rifts(with achievs).

    Maddening Shield awaits you (they also start with dropping epic boxes every 10 stages)

    Edit: 20% Cost reduction to T1 gear and they added a credit price for it(at the moment the cheapest piece is 6300 with Patron discount)

    To add to what Jonus said, there is a strange border around the client now.

    And the New Instant Adventure UI is in. Sadly the HK IA's aren't working. You get put in a group but nothing happens. I think Tacitus hasn't turned them on yet.

    Man is this a big update or what. I'm still finding new stuff, taking screenshots/notes/etc. Haven't even started on the article.

    Just a few extra tidbits of stuff I've found:
    • New crafted minion cards for each profession except Apothecary (which already has Clone).
    • Craft daily NPC outside Tempest Bay.
    • Weekly Craft NPC next to daily NPC in Choreburg. Gives Raid marks.
    • New Daily/Weekly quests for 'Onslaughts' in the middle of Flargle Plaza.
    • NMR6 achieves. NMR6 lures. NMR6 dailies/challenge dailies. RIFT Store -> Essences has 'Tier 2' filter, but no new essences yet.

    On Achievements:
    • 180 new achievements points for Moonshade Highlands. Seems like it could be related to new HK IA. Involves killing Echoes of HK bosses, as well as 'Ruin' and 'Fear'/etc.
    • NMR6 achieves.
    • HK conqueror achieve now has new mount reward: Abyssal Lifter mount. That's 1 of the 3 new Lifter mounts found.
    • New Promo Week achievements for the Battle Boar mount. placeholder lockbox reward.
    • Fishing achieve has "Fish On!" achievement for turning tackle box into Uncle Stan at Choreburg.

    And...back to hunting.

    A few tidbits to add, might have found a possible name for the part of the zone bordering Plane Touched Wilds and Droughtlands (or at least it popped up as "discovered" to me)

    Rhinenahyrcaros Steppes:



    Also, thanks to Batsy, there seems to be a few rare level 65 Elites roaming around Moonshade Highlands. I missed the first one, which was a type of rock Golem but managed to grab this one, Echo of Sicaron.

    New way to get max level chars to revisit old zones? temporary placeholder just thrown into Moonshade? might be worth a look at some old zones to see if more rares have been added.

    Nice, a new name for a location in PTW!

    As for the Echoes. Check Achievements -> Zones -> Moonshade Highlands. There's a massive amount of them. I thought they might be related to the new HK IAs, but guess these are found within the zone itself.

    Did it appear because of the Unstable zone event or is it visible normally? There's an achievement for killing every one of the "Echoes of [HK boss name]" twice, and some other "Echoes of [Pain, Torment, Destruction/etc]".

    Thanks for the info Batsy and Slipmat!

    Just finished writing up the article for latest PTS Update.

    You can check it out here. 1:30AM so I'm going to head off to bed. I'll write up the usual 'Briefly' on here later today.

    Seems that was just coincidence, spent an hour running around Moonshade and found 5 of them, got the 'basic' achievement to kill 5, awards the title 'the Irrational'

    Next step is to kill 10 which will award the title 'the Deranged' so i assume there's a title for 15 and for the full 20.

    Not sure of the respawn times or how many can be up at the one time, killed the 5 and now found nothing in past 20 minutes

    Thanks for the info Slipmat!
    Sounds a little worrying if they are that hard to find - but I guess it's one of those achieves you'll eventually get. Shard-hopping should help, although the initial surge of players might make it hard to tag one in time.

    Another 1.74GB update hit the PTS. There's new IA achieves under Achievements -> Character -> Instant Adventures. Tacitus did mention that HK IAs aren't up yet.

    Rhinenahyrcaros Steppes:


    Oh my God, I love you so much. Now I have to find a way on top of the ENORMOUS mountains bordering PTW!

    EDIT: I can confirm that Sorrowsworn Wall and Woe are no longer locations within Planetouched Wilds on PTS. At least, not at the same places that they correspond to on live. Rhinenahyrcaros Steppes has replaced Sorrowsworn Wall. The cliff next to Planetouched Wilds on the Freemarch side no longer exists, and Woe / Sunken City can no longer be seen.
