Trion’s most recent Twitch.tv stream featured the familiar faces of Elrar and the RIFT developer team giving players a sneak peak at the Dendrome, but that wasn’t all the new content eagle-eyed viewers spotted. In the background of most of the video was a whiteboard covered with ideas, and since the Twitch stream aired players have been eagerly guessing what it could all mean.
There’s certainly good reason to assume that the whiteboard could be a legitimate vision of the future. Previously in March 2012 the “RIFT Anniversary” official video featured a quick shot of a whiteboard noting Fishing and a Mentoring System, both of which appeared later in patches 1.8 and 1.9 respectively. So what can this “behind the scenes” glimpse tell us about future content?
