    "Future content releases"?

    I mean we haven't had anything for the going on a year now. It's safe to say that the only upcoming raid is most likely the GSB rehash and that won't be coming for 6-12 months. So yippee wait a total of a year and half- 2 years to get a raid that's just a higher difficulty of an already existing one.

    I mean enabling old events is cool and all but that's really not enough to keep people entertained for the year and from what my friends tell me who are still holding onto hope the game is a ghost town for the most part.

    So what are these "Legendary Hits"? Big boss attacks or something?

    Either way, it's still nice seeing gamigo appearing to put forth more effort to support live servers than Trion has. At least they're turning on old events to give players something to do instead of just waiting for copy/paste patch notes from the Prime servers.

    I don't see them supporting Prime for much longer personally with how dead that thing is. When I used the 7 day code back in Nov/Dec to take a look the most recent person to log on in my guild was 5 months ago.

    No Patch this week, just a restart but the Rift CM, Zyra, did explain the resoning behind this Legendary Hit for pure Tanks getting removed, seems they want to go back to encouraging Hybrid builds which sounds a bit more decent than "61 point builds or GTFO!"

    Legendary Hit has sort of outlived its purpose. It was a heavy handed response to hybrids with the goal of forcing players into 61 point talents, but how fun is that? At the end of the day mmo’s are about playing characters the way you want, and forced mechanics like ‘if you want to tank you HAVE to take this or you just die’ isn’t really compelling.

    Going forward we’re looking at systems that don’t deliver on what we’re trying to do in RIFT which is create a fun experience for our players. If something isn’t meeting our goals or living up to our standards it will be looked at for removal or a rework. You can read into that how you will, but I don’t have concrete details I can give you at this time as it’s not as simple as selecting and deleting. I know you have lots of questions about balance/class devs, but right now I don’t have any answers for you.

    However I will say this, there are A LOT of quality of life changes, and new content coming down the pipeline soon™.

    At least Gamigo seem intent on working away at Rift, what this content entails, just have to wait and see.

    I stopped playing Rift around 5 months ago. My main was a cleric and it wasn't doing so great. I use to have REX give aways if we completed content. Like if we beat a boss I would have people roll on loot. If they only knew how much money I spent on this game.. And all they really had to do was fix clerics to keep me. I WILL never come back to Rift again. And yes I spent close to 1000$ in one year on the game :P.

    Also, that change to tank synergy.. I can tell even without logging in for 5 months cleric got F'ed again. Class had the worse synergy of any class. I bet it benefited rogue or primalist the most.. go figure.. bunch of bads running the most dedicated players out of the game as usual.

    But...what is "Legendary Hit"? The 61 point talents? Because if so, that's amazing.

    This is probably the best announced design change that the game has seen in years, to be honest. Hybrids were pretty brutally slaughtered after chocolate and in each following expansion they seemed to kill off more and more hybrid builds while basically forcing you to max out trees.

    Seriously, gamigo has had the game for what now...4 months? And I'm already far more optimistic about the games future than I have been probably since around mid-NT.

    At least live servers, which Trion functionally abandoned. No clue what's going on with Prime servers nowadays and from what I've read they're ghost towns.

    I didn't even Know Rift was still a game... Good to see there are still patches though.

    Even I kind of like the sound of that, and not too long ago I was telling slipmat to go f himself.

    Maybe I'll keep an eye on Gamigo RIFT. I'd love to see it return to a decent state, but I'm skeptical that it can make it there.

    I mean right now the dungeon needs work if it can be 2 manned. But it does seem Gamigo want this game to try and at least come back from the grave before thinking about shutting it down.

    If anything as I said the next 2 projects they will look to shut down will probably be Defiance 2050 and Atlas Reactor.

    My thoughts exactly. Even though it's still in the tuning stages being able to be 2-manned means they have no idea how to balance things properly. It shouldn't be able to be 2-manned even in an early stage IMO. We'll see how it turns out, but I'm not hopeful if it can be 2-manned.

    It seems the new Dungeon, which is released today, is the first in a new feature, Challenge Dungeons, sounds like the old Master Mode Dungeons we had, would be interesting if they applied them across to all Dungeons.

    Gamigo have been teasing this Battle Pass feature for a while now across Twitter and Facebook, we all thought it might be a Conquest related theme but now not so sure.

    Small patch this week, mostly to sort out some niggling bugs in the new Dungeon Enclave of Ahnket but a welcome fix is the part about the summon friend ability now not working if you have the person summoning you on ignore.

    This could and was been abused by trolls who thought it was funny to keep trying to summon people in the middle of their raids, muppets.


    Patch Notes - March 28, 2019

    RAIDS AND DUNGEONS:

    ENCLAVE OF AHNKET:

    Fixed the following achievements: Purgatory, Pardon the Interruption, No Help for the Wicked.
    Conqueror achievement has been added.
    Fixed a bug where pets were being targeted by Rock Tomb in Enclave of Ahnket.
    Fixed a bug where bosses in Enclave of Ahnket were requiring an individual loot charge when killed for the first time each day.
    Adjusted the drop rates of items in Enclave of Ahnket.
    Fixed a bug that prevented the upgrade recipes for Eternal Items from updating when completing Enclave of Ahnket (Expert).

    ZONES AND EVENTS:

    GEDLO BADLANDS:

    Fixed a bug that caused Infected Desert Phoenix to spawn in Devil’s Canyon instead of regular Desert Phoenix.

    RIFT Store:

    Greenata mount can now be purchased with credits.

    GENERAL:

    Ignoring a player now blocks friend summon attempts from showing

    Holy crud, the game is still going?

    After the shit show that was Prime, and subsequent selling of Trion, I thought it had closed with all honesty.

    If it had a better UI, I would probably be playing it. It was the only game to come out since WoW that could ever hold a candle to what I liked about WoW, pre-Cataclysm.

    Yeah Gamigo at least want to give it a chance. And oddly seem to be giving more a damn about it than Trion ever did.

    It's still definitely on life support. Hell Prime is shutting down at the end of this week due to the player population basically being non existent.

    Although props to Gamigo for coming out and saying "we will be eventually getting rid of the aggressive monetisation crap Trion brought in"

    Although this happened.....

    http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...ently-p2w.html

    “We’ll do that by evaluating our business models and phasing out some of the older, aggressive micro-transactions along with reducing the reliance on lockboxes. Instead, we’ll focus on selling the service and optional objective rewards through modern, hybridized models.”
    It's funny how a company who has a boatload of P2W in their games can admit the state of the cash shop in Trion is godawful/P2W/P2A yet certain people couldn't and just played the "you are entitled" card. And quite frankly just sell the classes and cosmetics.

    Don't put P2W crap in like the captured intel boxes or Earring slot was in NMT for a brief while.

    Honestly if it fails they will just abandon it and move to Trove since it's the only Trion game with a chance of making them money.

    Defiance 2050, Archeage and Atlas Reactor are just flat out dead. Trion basically spent their time driving most of their IPs into the ground and driving any published games into the ground. I mean Devilian which they published barely lasted 2 years.

    And was dead for 1 year and 11 months. I would call it a shame but Devilian was never good. Archeage was a shame.

    Anyway...battle pass in an mmo? Wat.

    Rift is dead as well. EU is like a Ghost Town, NA has all the player almost. So many guild quit or they find another game dunno but the situation in Rift is so bad. They added new dungeon that's good thing but I dont think 1 dungeon will bring people back tbh

    The game need more investment + Man power I mean Dev's.

    1 dungeon that can be 2 manned hasn't brought anyone back.

    Yes a friend of mine 2 manned it just like it was 2 manned on PTR. It's not a "challenge dungeon" at all.
