Update 10/10: Elrar announced that Phase 3 of Tempest Rising will introduce players to Exodus of the Storm Queen, the new dungeon. This will give players about two weeks to enjoy the dungeon before the expansion’s launch.
While we don’t have a date for RIFT Patch 1.11 yet, we do have Trion’s announcement of the patch, along with some of the details about what we’ll be seeing when it launches. Most of these details we were already aware of– including the major changes to our current souls and callings and the 4-part Storm Legion major World Event, Tempest Rising. During Phase 3 of Tempest Rising is when Storm Legion pre-orderers will be gaining access to Exodus of the Storm Queen, the first new 5-man dungeon.
“Telara as you know it is coming unhinged. Familiar souls grow strange while new souls lurk in the shadows. Machines and demons battle through the streets of capital cities. Worse, a messenger delivers dire tidings from a distant shore: Crucia’s imprisonment is a façade. Soon, she’ll break free of the Icewatch and join her massed legion in the conquest of the planes.”
Also in this announcement is the news that Trion will be allowing returning players of all levels to return to Telara for free during the weekend of November 7-11 to test out all the major changes of Patch 1.11, and take part in the Storm Legion pre-expansion event.
