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.
  • Neutral control points now have less health.

Rift 1.7 patch includes many PvP changes

by on Feb.05, 2012, under RvR and PvP

If you have not seen it yet, Rift 1.7 “Carnival of the Ascended” released last week with some pretty significant PvP changes. The changes included a revamp of the Prestige ranks from 8 ranks to 40 total ranks, where the total Prestige gained stays the same. Also added is a bolstering effect in PvP (level 50 warfronts) for players Prestige 13 and below. The last big one is a removal of PvP Souls and their replacement, Planar Attunement abilities for PvP. There are many other nice changes and additions so be sure to check them out on the official Rift forums post “Rift 1.7: Carnival of the Ascended” or click our link below.

Rift 1.4 PvP changes and additions

by on Jul.14, 2011, under RvR and PvP

While the PvP news has been slow lately for Rift, we are finally seeing some significant changes and additions coming for the 1.4 patch. Probably the biggest change, which will certainly garner some cheers as well as some boos, is the reduced effectiveness of healing, specifically with heal over time and insta cast heal spells. Rift PvP players will also see the addition of PvP gear set bonuses and new Prestige Ranks 7 and 8, I assume with more powerful gear to purchase. Most of these new things are going on the PTS server starting July 14th and are likely to change I imagine before the patch goes live. Check out the full PTS 1.4 In-Progress Notes on the official Rift forums, or follow our link below.

Rift Patch 1.3 PvP notes and changes

by on Jun.23, 2011, under RvR and PvP

Updates have been slowing down here at Riftrvr.com, but we are still following changes in the Rift PvP scene. Today brings us the latest content patch for Rift and with that comes a lot of changes and updates to PvP. We will not go into all the soul details as the patch is full of things to mull over, however we will point out some of the game changers as far as PvP goes in Rift. Read below for what we think are the most significant changes to Rift PvP, then follow the link for all the notes or visit the official Rift 1.3 patch thread:

  • Absorb shields, damage immunities, etc, no longer defend you against being interrupted when flipping objectives or picking up PvP objectives. (this has long been a tip for warfronts here on our site)
  • Channeled abilities no longer persist through visual obstacles and obey line of sight, thus breaking the channel as it should.
  • Pyromancers get nerfed another 20% damage on fulminate and cinder burst 😮
  • Rank 6 weapons updated to equal the power of epic tier 1 PvE weapons.
  • World PvP daily quests have been added!
  • Many soul changes to discuss in detail, that resulted in free respecs…follow the link for all the notes.
