There will be plenty of awesome things to do later today when RIFT 2.3: Empyreal Assault goes live, but one thing we’ll have to wait a little bit on is taking advantage of the new race and gender change options that will be added to Barber Shops thanks to the free-to-play system. Daglar made an announcement on the forums yesterday evening stating that the feature has been delayed due to a recently-discovered issue. The good news is that we should see the issue fixed by Thursday if all goes well.

We have been going through our final screening process for 2.3 and unfortunately we’ve found an issue with race/gender changes on the barber shop. We’ve made the decision to disable barbers when 2.3 hits tomorrow until we can get the fix up to live.
I expect the fix to be deployed on Thursday – though other circumstances could always intervene.
I’m extremely sorry to everyone that is excited to try out this feature, and we’ll get it up to live as soon as we can.
Faction change scrolls that can be purchased through the store interface weren’t affected by this issue.
