    This game continues to be a pinnacle of how every company should run an MMO.

    What does this mean, in practice? I expect that the top link is still 25% - are they reducing the damage transferred from 115% to something else?

    This seems to me like any port that has a cast-time can be used anywhere by Warfronts and Conquest, whereas the Brevanic Portal Generator (which has no cast-time) cannot. This makes sense - I'm assuming that any AoE DoT that is affecting me will interrupt my cast, preventing me from reaching (and then damaging) people in the cities.

    ---------- Post added 2012-12-19 at 09:52 AM ----------

    They seem to have tried to eliminate the safe spots in Archive of Flesh (Cahail) and Boneforge (Bruzheil), but not in Tower of the Shattered (Thunderscar). Or will I just wipe next time I have ranged stack in the prow?

    Yes. Link percentages remain the same, but the host Cleric takes less damage from the transfer as you skill up. It's like, through your training, you've learned to be more efficient with energy (damage) transfers and don't hurt yourself as much using them.

    Seems Trion have put the long overdue boot in on fishing bots

    ** Addressing the Bots **

    While we were out for the holidays, there was a marked rise in both fishing and onslaught farming bots. We know that the vast majority of you are responsible, upstanding, and incredibly attractive Telaran citizens, but we do need to take a moment to remind everyone that automating play is a violation of the terms of service that will be acted upon.

    As of today, we’ve already shut down a few thousand accounts over the recent rise in fishing botting, and we’ve begun removing gains from others in places of extreme bot use. A good number of these botters were brought in, as is often the case, on stolen credit cards and fraudulent Rift purchases.

    That said, some folks do innocently use keyboard-assistance software while they’re at their computer. We’ve gone out of our way to make sure that differently-abled gamers are able to use the assist software that they need.

    Unfortunately, for the next week or two, until the bot situation gets back under control, use of this software may intentionally be randomly unreliable, up to causing random disconnects. We ask that you please refrain from using keyboard automation software in the meanwhile.

    For those who have no choice but to use this software due to a physical disability, we would like to make sure you’re still able to play. Drop a ticket to our CS staff if this temporary change does prevent you from playing entirely and we’ll see what we can do to remedy the situation for you.

    As for onslaught botting, that will be handled via a more creative content solution that is currently in development, in a coming hotfix.

    Once that solution is out in the wild, we’ll look into restoring standard functionality of assistance software.

    Thanks for your reports and your patience!

    Thanks for this as I sit at work yerning for some rift time.

    More importantly I don't see any nerfs listed here for any of the OP War/Rogue specs - so I guess I will be buying that Sab crystal tonight.

    P.S. damit - i guess War did get nerfed... well "fixed" as intended.

    I think they said the Sab fix won't be here until 2.2.

    I'm happy the raid assistant fix was done for PVP. That was my biggest pet peeve after playing Wow. Tactician fix is huge as well. That bug was extremely annoying.

    Man, cross-server group invites that let you do anything instanced with people from other servers implemented in a hotfix? Who do these guys thing they are.

    Seriously, this is another reason why I have zero issues handing Trion money. That's the kind of thing that makes it into an expansion or a major patch in other games (if it makes it in at all) and Trion drop it in a damn hotfix. Though admittedly, it might have been prepped for 2.2 and they just decided to release it when it's finished rather than hold it for 2.2, but that's still quite righteous of them.

  11. #11
    Surprised they adjusted fall damage and held breath timer. Those are other changes that usually come during the big adjustments with an expansion. Par for the course with Trion though, the guys and girls who, on a whim, decide to increase character run speed.

    QFT.

    Not to mention that instead of giving us some random nonsense regarding the bots, which everyone including me is very perturbed with, they are intentionally trying to make the game easier to play for disabled gamers.

    I didn't even think about the implications of using keyboard automation for them...that's really awesome. I would imagine if other companies did similar things we would hear about it, so rock on with the awesomesauce.

    LOL the botting change is crazy, i like that they are sifting through the people who are disabled and use scripting software as a means to make it easier for them to play too thats nice :P
    some serious QoL changes in a hotfix, so great, i love the guys at Trion man, they never seem to not suprise me.

    Seriously, this is another reason why I have zero issues handing Trion money. That's the kind of thing that makes it into an expansion or a major patch in other games (if it makes it in at all) and Trion drop it in a damn hotfix. Though admittedly, it might have been prepped for 2.2 and they just decided to release it when it's finished rather than hold it for 2.2, but that's still quite righteous of them.
    I think it was actually supposed to be in 2.1. My RL friend is on a different server than me and he had said he heard about this coming a couple weeks ago and we tried it and it didn't work. Not sure where he got the info from, so this is really all heresay, however, I think it was supposed to be in 2.1 and they just had to fix it.

    Edit: just read this and it does seem as though I am playing it down and making it sound not awesome, which was not the intended purpose. I think it is great that they were able to fix it in a hotfix and it is an awesome feature. I am actually probably going to use it tonight to play with friends from my old server.

    I was just talking about this in my cross server chat not long ago with Lathais. That's a huge thing I can group with my deepwood buddies now. \o/

    Isn't this kind of what the guesting feature was supposed to be like for GW2? Regardless it's another good step to breaking down realm/server/shard barriers.

    It's basically implementing the RealID functionality from WoW, but without needing to be RealID friends. The guesting feature would literally let you jump over to the other servers zone to play with friends (a la CRZ in WoW, except controlled by the players), and I don't see that coming for a while in Rift as the zones aren't discrete instances and I really don't see much value in the CRZ tech : /

    Heh, I forgot we were talking about that the other day. Heck, the three of us(Me, Azuri and Edge) should group up tonight as well. I can tank, my RL friend can tank or I can grab my guilds MT if one of you guys can heal.
