’s Public Test Shard (‘PTS’) was updated on the 5th Otober 2015 with a small update. Might be the last or penultimate update before RIFT 3.4
launch. As always, everything below is subject to change prior to hitting Live and some things included below may never make it to live release.
The Wilds Celebration Pack
“The Wilds Celebration Pack
” has appeared in the Rewards Claim box on the RIFT
Store front page for all players on the PTS. It can only be claimed once per account
The Wilds Celebration Pack contains:
Trove of Boosts (collection of 160% Transcendent pots)
Overcompensating Crystallized Insight (1mil PA exp)
Seafoam Crabnarok (matches fastest mount speed)
Ascended Gift (heirloom Seal)
Shalistiri Weapon Costume Pack (4 weapon costumes)
Trove of Boosts
The Trove of Boosts
opens up to give one of each Transcendent pot/vial/sphere. These all increase x gained by 160% for 2hrs and lasts through death.
Note: The Trove of Boosts
is Bound to Account, but when you open it, the Transcendent pots themselves are Soulbound.
The Seafoam Crabnarok mount is Bound to Account, so it can only be applied to one character. It is not an account-wide unlock. Matches your fastest mount speed.
Note: Currently when you collect the mount on the PTS, it will appear in the 155% mount speed category. This seems to be a bug because it matches your fastest mount speed. Also, if it had 155% mount speed, it would make the addition of the 15k plat version on the RIFT Store pointless.
The Ascended Gift gives you a heirloom ‘Ascended Seal’ based on your class. Like all other ‘Ascended’/pink-colored items, it will scale with you as you level, up to Level 60.
Note: The item ‘Ascended Gift’ is Bound to Account, but once you open it, it’ll become Soulbound. The stats the Ascended Seal item gets will depend on the class of the character that opens the Ascended Gift item.
|Shalistiri Weapon Costume Pack
The Shalistiri Weapon Costume Pack is Bound to Account and unlocks the Shalistiri Greatsword, Shalistiri Longblade, Shalistiri Greatstaff and Shalistiri Greatbow wardrobe items to your wardrobe collection.
So now that you know that we’ll be getting The Wilds Celebration Pack. who to claim it on?
Well, it really doesn’t matter!
You can claim The Wilds Celebration Pack on any char since everything is Bound to Account, except the Overcompensating Crystallized Insight.
Ancestor’s Exalted Wardrobe
The 5th Wilds wardrobe set is now available on the PTS. Search for “Ancestor’s Exalted” in the armor slots whilst having “Show Uncollected” checked to preview.
Also, all the new wardrobes are now dyable.
The Seer’s Stone
, which was originally only rewarded from the “Nightmare: Dirtier in Olden Times (65)” artifact set, is now also available from the Artifact vendor for 100 Lucky Coins.
The Seer’s Stone
is available from both the artifact set or from the artifact vendor.
The Seer’s Stone
basically darkens your vision to the point where you can only see faint glows from high-glow objects like street lights.
Just pure speculation, but I think the Seer’s Stone
is more than just fluff. It could be related to part of how to obtain the Kubari Sakti dimension item, or related to the Callweddi Village puzzle.
Perhaps when you are under the effects of the Seer’s Stone
, special lights might appear in certain areas that points you to something special? Something to consider for any puzzle gurus out there.
Planetouched Wilds Weekly
The Planetouched Wilds
has four weekly quests that are up on the PTS.
Two of these quests requires killing open world bosses, whilst the other two are for closing rifts or killing some Elite mobs (that can be solo’d fairly easily).
RIFT Khadluu Ukher
Planetouched Wilds WeeklyThe raid boss in the image above is Khadluu Ukher
. He is located at /setway point 11113,6793.
To summon Khadluu Ukher
, you need to first kill the Sacrificial Khadgaks in the area.
He had 546.8m hp when summoned on the PTS. If the open world raid boss in the Planetouched Wilds are anything like the old Dendrome Raid Weeklies, the health on the boss will probably scales with zone population.
Due to some of his mechanics though, it’s possible that you only want a small group of players to take him on (compared to Dendrome’s 100+ players).
The Five Kahns
The other raid weekly bosses are located in various areas. There’s 5 Kahns and each week you’ll receive one of the Kahns to kill.
Although the quest indicates it’s a “Raid Weekly”, the Kahn NPCs all seem to only have 2.8mil hp and can be easily killed by two players.
The weekly questgivers
in the Planetouched Wilds are located at the top of the floating islands in Plain of the Ancestors at /setway point 10113,4944.
Location Planetouched Wilds Weekly Quest
NPCs Turok Bolormaa Enkhtuya
The four weeklies all reward Nightmare Tide currency:
Each one gives 2,500 Void Stones, 500 Abyssal Crusader’s Marks, 100 Fragments of Horror and 160 Fragments of Madness. This will make it that much easier to reach the weekly currency caps.
: The weekly currency caps haven’t changed on the PTS.
