    Hmm... Went to log into my game, since they said the game was coming down for a new update, and after putting in my password, I got the "Play" button instead of the "Update" button...

    It seems with the Icewatch shuffling last night, EU didn't get hotfix #2, so NA is getting hotfix #3 right now and EU will get both #2 and #3

    RIFT 2.3 Hot Fix #3 - 6/14 NA @ 3 PM PT || 6/15 EU @ 1AM GMT (2+3 for EU)

    RIFT 2.3 Hot Fix #3 - 06/14/13, 06/15/13 for EU

    NOTE: EU is getting Hot Fix #2 with this deploy as well.

    GENERAL

    * Queues: Fixed a display bug for players waiting in the queue. Previously, after 15 minutes of waiting, a player's position in queue could appear to get stuck. It will now more reliably read the correct position.
    * Offhand items that have been Transfigured, and are equipped and steathed, should no longer have animation problems.
    * The Random Storm Legion Expert now shows the correct rewards. This was purely a display issue.

    Their games are far from perfect. Without a doubt though, Trion itself is one of the finest developers in the business.

    Dont know if it's because of this, but when pressing play at char selection often nothing happens and I must restart the game, happened yesterday morning and now today. Must restart several times until it works =( Just me or known issue?
    New warfront modes sound epic, hope I get to try them out this week =))

    However.

    * You now earn rest experience from hanging out in dimensions. Welcome home!

    A nice change to Ember Isle, as for new players reaching level 50 it was a big step up in difficulty, bear in mind it was released after a lot of us had raid gear and were level 50 for a while.

    Also pity the poor butchering bots in Tulan who ran their paths along the croc hatchlings routes

    I got a big laugh at this. A level 58 warrior (would say the name, but is probably frowned on) who goes through that path using the same ability to kill the hatchlings. I even cleared out a group, and he came along and just swung his weapons over and over until it was apparently time for the crocs to die. So, I reported him as a bot. Now I get to see if he is still doing that when I log in and can /who the person.

    As an addition, to those who are getting error 3145 (like I was), what worked for me was signing in as guest, and patching that way, and then closing the launcher and signing in as normal. Found that solution on the rift forums.

    wish they would fix the storm legion dungeon bugs, bosses despawning or becoming un-targetable, the dominax encounter bugging out when trying to drop the crystal into the forge, centaur boss going invisible after the stampede phase, so many bugs that have been present for a long time and shoulda been fixed months ago :/
