Rift adds domination mode to warfronts

by on Jun.20, 2013, under RvR and PvP

Of all the places to find an update to PvP in Rift, we find it in a recent hotfix. Rift patch 2.3 Hot Fix #4 added the following new “domination” modes to two of the existing warfronts “Black Garden” and “Karthan Ridge”:

* Available to players between level 10 and level 60.
* Fight for the control of The Black Garden by dominating the 2 control points.

* Available to players between level 50 and level 60.
* Take Karthan Ridge by storm with this 5 control point variant.
* Capture Points on your side of the map give 3 points.
* Capture Points on the enemy’s side of the map give 5 – high risk, high reward!

Details of the patch can be found at the link below or by viewing the full post:

PvP Gear Normalization?

by on Aug.13, 2012, under RvR and PvP

You heard me, Trion is going to be experimenting with gear/stat normalization in Warfronts and Conquest, this Tuesday 8/14 @ 4pm PDT. This is kind of huge news on the PvP front. What this means is all gear for all players in a warfront or conquest match, will be the same (stat wise). Will the fun factor go up with everyone the same level playing field gear wise? I would say YES, but that is just me. On the other hand, this may de-value the gear progression that some people enjoy when playing their characters. At any rate, the idea has been dropped and the testing will begin, what do you think of going to a system like this? To see all the details visit the Rift community page:

Conquest changes and updates

by on Jun.15, 2012, under RvR and PvP

Another Conquest PTS Event is going on as we type, Friday 6/15 at 4:00pm. Trion has listed some key updates since the last playtest which are listed below, in addition to patch 1.9 set #3 notes.

  • Addition of an end phase where only the “winning” team may respawn. There are various footholds and a colossi that the winning team can break open for rewards (rewards not attached!). Those not on the winning team are not forced out of the map, but cannot respawn.
  • There is a new flow for getting into Conquest. When it is available you will be able to open the Conquest Menu and select a side for the duration of that Conquest match. If a side is full you won’t be able to select it.
  • The Conquest menu has received a facelift.
  • Conquest Power is now awarded at a set interval during the match based on your personal contribution as well as when the phase changes.
  • The decay rate for Conquest Power has been modified so you are not losing it during the match.
  • Afk auto kicking has been enabled.
  • Control points now have names on mouseover.
  • Two additional crafting recipies have been added to all main trades. You may now craft a portable turret or a portable lifespring.
