Crafting “Skill Spheres” on PTS Rift Store

Some more new items have made their way onto the PTS version of the Rift Store today. Under “Boosts,” there is a new subcategory for “Crafting” that has 3 new items to go through. A rare “Lesser Skill Sphere,” an epic “Skill Sphere,” and a relic “Greater Skill Sphere.”

So it looks like this will be something that will come in handy for people that want to powerlevel through new professions with a boost! So if you earn 1 skill point per craft, each of the vial would (obviously) boost the skill point earned by 15%, 40%, and 80%. I’d say this would be great if you don’t have a lot of materials to level through and would rather utilize some credits for a boost to power through it a little faster.

Definitely would have loved this when I was doing Runecrafting on my main after I added a new Tradeskill! …

2.4 Extended Hairstyle Set Preview

Fantastic news for those of you that happened to read over my PTS 2.4 preview and saw that we’d be getting an “Extended Hairstyle Set” in the Rift Store (along with new hair colors and skin tones) but unfortunately, the Barbershop had been unavailable for the last few days and I wasn’t able to get any previews going.

However, Pithos came to the rescue to let us know that the previews “technical mumbo jumbo” had been resolved and that we’d be able to access the Barbershop on the PTS as well as buy the three new items available. So while I was going to spend my credits on the PTS (essentially ‘wasting’ them) to preview the hairstyles (and colors), Pithos also let us know that if you purchase any of the three items on the PTS, they will be associated to your account when 2.4 goes Live. How awesome is that?!…

Sad news today as Elrar departs from Trion

Some really sad news to tell you guys today. Elrar is no longer with Trion. There are no details on his departure but instead was announced to us by Dahanese letting us know to expect more interaction from OverloadUT and Morgana and that with Elrar gone, she’d be the main point of contact.

Elrar, thank you for the 2+ years that you served the Rift community with your bellowing Mead!, quick replies to resolve issues amongst members in the community, the countless hours you have dedicated yourself to this game, and everything else you have done for the fans, us fansite owners and everyone else. I sincerely hope that your new/upcoming endeavour treats you even better and that if you manage a new gaming community, that they find out how awesome mead can be.…

/follow disabled in Warfronts/Conquest dismantling Multiboxing

For the past few months (and by few I mean the entirety of this year) people have been complaining on the forums about how Multiboxing is ruining PVP (and elsewhere) in Rift. Prior to Rift going F2P, multiboxers weren’t too common because you had to have a subscription for each account and of course if you wanted to level beyond 50, each account would have required Storm Legion. But with Rift going F2P, the influx of multiboxers have been a bit too much for players and it seems Trion as well.

Daglar finally posted tonight on the forums that /follow has officially been disabled in Warfronts and Conquest for the time being. If this current change has affected your gameplay, DO leave constructive feedback in the thread “/follow disabled in Warfronts and Conquest” on the forums. Remember, be civil and mature about your feedback!

Hey folks,

As some of you may have noticed, we’ve disabled /follow in both Warfronts and Conquest for the time being. This is a toggle that is now in our remote admin tool that we can turn on and off in real time.
