RIFT 3.5: Hotfix #18 3/31/2016

It looks like with hotfix #18, Trion is trying to help out guilds that are currently in a progression rut or maybe you've lost a few members and have been working on gearing up their replacements.

It looks like if you have a full set of Tier 1 equivalent gear, you'll be bolstered up to 1200 hit and up to 1500 additional endurance. If you have a full set of Tier 2 equivalent you'll be at 1520 hit. This is a limited time event during the 5th anniversary event so make sure to take advantage of it to try and move your guild a bit further down the progression road.

In addition to the temporary stat bolstering, The Rhen of Fate now resets twice per week instead of one time. 

Once the patch goes live we'll know exactly how it's working and I'll update this excerpt to reflect that. If you want to see the (very limited) patch notes, feel free to click through.
