    Default RIFT 4.4: Hotfix #1 3/14/2018


    RIFT 4.4: Hotfix #1 3/14/2018

    == PRIME:VIGIL PATCH NOTES ==

    (for the Live server version, please click here)

    CARNIVAL OF THE ASCENDED
    * There is no formal Carnival of the Ascended on Vigil because... no dragons have been killed yet! However: that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the chance to spend your hard earned money on party favors or fried butter. Look for a carnivalesque traveler in your home city! (runs March 15, 3:30 PM PT - April 5, 3:30 PM PT)


    GENERAL
    * Experience gains have been increased from all sources. Thanks for your feedback, and we will continue to monitor gains and adjusted accordingly if needed.
    * Increased the rewards for all notoriety and currency bundles in the Prime Daily Reward Calendar!
    * The daily quest limit has been increased to 30.
    * Twitter integration has been disabled due to crashes - the issue is on Twitter's end and we have been unable to raise a response from them to date. The button will be removed from the UI at a later time.


    SOULS

    CLERIC

    PRESETS
    * Fixed the Benefactor preset by removing Shaman and Inquisitor abilities from the preset ability bar


    ROGUE

    PRESETS
    * Fixed the missing melee weapons for new characters choosing the Virtuoso preset.


    WARRIOR

    BEASTMASTER
    * The ability names for Beastmaster summoning have been changed.

    CaptainCursor has a tale to tell about this...

    Nyol the Beastmaster looked upon the warriors of Telara and despaired. Why have so few of the warriors of Telara followed in his path? He sought out his spirit companion in the Realm of the Fae. “Naveer, my faithful companion, you have journeyed with many a beastmaster, you might know their mindset even better than I. Why are there so few of them in the world?”

    Naveer stretched and yawned, his saber like teeth flashing white in the bright faetouched sunlight. “It’s because I don’t do much to help them.” The great cat dropped this brutally honest truth on the great soul, and went back to sleep.

    “What do you mean you don’t do anything? I remember adventuring with you, you would bite and swipe with your great claws!” Nyol replied, shocked at his former companion.

    “Did I tank for you?” Asked the cat pointedly.

    “No. I seem to remember doing all that work.”

    “Well there you go. I didn’t want to muss up my fur. So I let the monsters hit the warriors. Better they die then I look less than fabulous.” Naveer then fell back asleep.

    Nyol fumed as only elves can, his ears turning a bright shade of red in his anger. He went to the nearby stream and grabbed a bucket full of water and ran back to the great sabretooth cat and splashed him while hissing in a bestial manner. Naveer meowed in surprise and shock and jumped up into the nearby tree as Nyol shouted as his former companion. “You WILL help out these great warriors in the mortal realm! Are you saying that a pile of rocks or a pig are more fearsome than you, the great primal cat? Now when you bite a foe, or swipe them you will draw the attention of the monstrous opponents lest my great martial tradition fade from Telara!”

    “Fine!” cried Naveer, clearly freaked out, “Just stop throwing water on me. I hate that.” And with a burst of lightning he jumped into the mortal realm and mauled a goblin.

    Beastmasters pets have been renamed and given new icons. Now the primal companions have been renamed to “Primal Sabretooth” and the Vicious Companions have been renamed “Vicious Wyvern”. A Primal Sabretooth will do increased threat with its Bite and Claw Swipe abilities. The Claw Swipe will now also include a taunt. The Lesser Primal Companion has been given the Claw Swipe ability as well as the Pounce that were once found only on the Greater Cat. From now on the Sabretooth will be a tank pet, and Beastmaster in dungeons and raids are advised to use their Vicious Wyvern whose abilities are unaffected and should not draw agro.

    DUNGEONS & RAIDS

    * Increased the drop rate for equipment in normal dungeons and allowed for more free loot rolls for bosses in normal dungeons. [For Prime Quality of Life!]

    DARKENING DEEPS
    * The damage of Squersh and Mursh has been reduced.

    DEEPSTRIKE MINES
    * Gatekeeper Kaleida is now taking gatekeeping a little bit less serious and deals less damage.

    FOUL CASCADE
    * Countess Surin Skenobar has had her outgoing damage reduced

    GREENSCALE'S BLIGHT
    * Removed mana drain abilities from the raid.

    INTREPID IRON TOMB
    * The dungeon entrance has been disabled on Prime.


    ZONES & EVENTS

    SHIMMERSAND
    * Zone Event: Saving Lantern Hook: Fixed some NPCs using the incorrect power level, resulting in inflated experience on its death.

    SILVERWOOD
    * Silverwood has had a number of new carnage quests added to bring it up to parity with Freemarch. 14 of them, in fact! [For Prime Quality of Life!]
    - If you are a Guardian and have left the zone, it might be worth taking a murder run through that idyllic forest and sweeping up some of this sweet, sweet XP.
    - Certain existing carnage quests that asked you to fight legitimately difficult fights, or asked you to go above and beyond the number of targets have had their XP reward increased.
    - Alas, without the Cosmic Rhinoceros, you can’t go back and time and redo them.

    MERIDIAN
    * The Lycini Ambassadors, as well as the Trove and Atlas Reactor promotional quest givers, are now back from their lunch break.

    SHIMMERSAND
    * Moved some rifts in Tempest Plain that sent a larger than normal amount of invasions to attack Sandaxle Pit.

    PVP & WARFRONTS
    * The Warfront Equipment Cache now rarely contains a mount! Either the Eldritch Vanguard White Tiger for Defiants or the Noble Guard White Tiger for Guardians.

    ITEMS
    * Common ("white") rarity equippable items are now Bind on Equip.
    * Expert gear vendors are now available in Sanctum in the Lodge of the Planes, and in Meridian in the courtyard alcoves.
    * Templar Zim in Sanctum and Girdoom in Meridian now offer a full selection of pre-50 PvP gear.
    * Sigils of Valor have been renamed Sigils of Primal Valor.
    * Any Sigils of Valor acquired from zone events in the first week can now be exchanged for Sigils of Primal Valor at any Commendation Vendor.
    * Crafting daily quests now include IRCs as a reward option.
    * Fixed an issue that was blocking mounts from dropping in dungeons.


    CRAFTING

    APOTHECARY
    * The vendor value of crafted fluff consumables has been reduced to 1 silver each.
