RIFT 4.4: Hotfix #2 3/21/2018

== PRIME: VIGIL PATCH NOTES ==


GENERAL
* Implemented several Back-end adjustments to attempt to help with ability lag.
* QUEST EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN DRASTICALLY INCREASED! The exact percentage of the increase varies by level range, but is substantial-- about 3x overall!
* Changing your wardrobe should no longer unlock the Embroidered Cloth items for that slot.
* Fixed a client crash if you attempted to add a planar augment while crafting from your favorites menu.


SOULS

SOUL GIFTS
In our ongoing balance efforts, we have disabled the soul gift bonus damage for Mystic Archers, Saboteurs & Runeshapers. We will continue to track how these souls are performing, and adjust accordingly. Thanks for all the feedback!

ZONES & EVENTS
* Tuned various NPCs in various rare zone events in Mathosia to prevent them from having too high of a power level.
* Fixed an issue with the Raising Kain zone event (as well as some others), where the event could go on forever.
* Quest: Darkblade: Luthas Darkblade now escapes to fight another day as intended.
* Quest: Nestor's Bones: This quest now scales to the level of the zone they are found in on Prime servers, just like Ascended do.

IRON PINE PEAKS
* Changed the levels of quests and mobs in Ironpine Peak for the Kain Saga that were out of the enforced level range of the zone.


DUNGEONS & RAIDS
* Bosses in expert dungeons now deal more damage and have more HP.
* Reduced the drop rate for costume bundles and mounts in dungeons.


DUNGEONS & RAIDS

ABYSSAL PRECIPICE
* Bosses now deal less damage.

CHARMER'S CALDERA
* Bosses now deal less damage.

FALL OF LANTERN HOOK
* Reduced the damage dealt by Emberlord Ereetu. However, he will now cast abilities even while being kited.
* Bosses now deal less damage.

IRON TOMB
* Quest: Source of the Control: Fixed the issue with the Rune Covered Chest where it was useable only once. Also fixed the map locator for the quest objective.
* The three kings will no longer reduce the outgoing damage of players to 0.


UI & SETTINGS
* Completed quests that are not turned in at an NPC are now prioritized over others in the UI popup for completed quests. This will make it so if you have reached the maximum amount of completed daily quests you can still complete other quests!
* The UI for Twitter Connect has now been removed.
* Fixed an issue where the UI would display the incorrect currency type upon attempting to purchase certain items.


ITEMS
* The Expert Gear merchants have returned, with more appropriately priced items. The expert currency Primal Mark of Ascension can be earned in Expert Dungeons as part of personal loot.
* Fixed an issue where the stats for some of Notoriety trinkets were not matching their calling or were a couple points under where they should be.
* Gear drops from expert dungeons were over-tuned, and have had their iLvl slightly reduced.


PVP & WARFRONTS
* Zarbog assassins on Prime Servers are now locally sourced. Their level should match the level max of Freemarch if/when encountered there ;)
