During yesterday’s RIFT 2.1 Hotfix #2, there were a couple surprising additions. Cross-shard group invites, anyone? That should be a welcome addition for guild alliances and groups of friends across multiple shards. We also received a much-needed answer and action taken to the recent influx of bots in RIFT. Oh, yeah. And have you tried to jump off a mountainside since the hotfix? I think it’s safe to say that the overall amount of death tolls across all shards should decrease by a substantial amount.
In light of the hotfix, Trion’s team members were back to their normal, active selves on the official forums yesterday (even Scott Hartsman, who shared his enthusiasm for Trion’s bot-quenching plans). There were a couple interesting dev tracker posts regarding undocumented additions in the update. Keep reading to find out what they were.
