What we did in game:
Sallennia:Been working through SL dungeons on Reg, getting some Chloro healing practice and getting to know them better before we try Expert. Not just burning through them, so that’s a great thing, helps that most people we seem to run them with haven’t been through them either. Haven’t had any trouble with LFG finding people.One more level 50 exp to do Rapid Assault…Abyssal Precipice… blah! How is this not finished yet?Ran Queens Gambit again… did NOT finish last boss.Chris:Stupid F-ing Queen’s Gambit.Ran some SL Normal dungeons to get used to the fights.Survivalist is up to 375Fishing is up to 330 – almost maxed out.Ran Archive of Flesh on ExpertNews from the RiftKervik talks Arbiter (mage 3.0 soul) tankinghttp://rift.junkiesnation.com/2013/07/11/kervik-talks-arbiter-tanking-and-pet-synergy/No buffs or talents that award toughness, will require tank gearPet based, Pet doesn’t have standard action bar, will follow you around, keeps you buffed and absorbs damage. Can be healed etc.Based more on deflect rather than blockOther soul names are: Warrior (Liberator) and Rogue (Physician) healers, and Cleric (Crusader)Hints on 2.4 from the livestreamhttp://rift.junkiesnation.com/2013/07/08/live-stream-hints-more-on-2-4/
New 20 man raids- tier 2Infinity Gate will be the easier of the two raids and will feature less bosses. The tougher raid will be Earth-themed and feature more bosses.We’ll also see a level 60 version of Realm of the Fae in 2.4.We’ll also be getting at least one (possibly two) new Chronicles in 2.4.Summerfest’s around the corner. Yes, we’re getting swimsuits this year.Changes to 30 Day Patron Pass purchases from the storehttp://forums.riftgame.com/general-discussions/news-announcements/369973-changes-loyalty-rewards-game-patron-passes.htmlThe issue is with Loyalty –previously the passes would give 8,640 loyalty (Credit purchase included)Will now give 7,000 loyal2,680 from the pass4,320 from spending the credits(hidden 4,320 for buying the credits)People were using the passes instead of subscribing, as they could spend the same amount of RW money, and get extra loyalty.Players could also purchase REX to get the credits, then purchase the passes to get the extra loyalty as well, but they would not get the bonus for purchasing the credits.People are VERY upset in this thread, and I don’t really understand why.
