Rift 3.7 Hotfix #15 – 10/5/2016

Hotfix #15 patch notes from the forums.  Of note are the new shield changes and a reduced token cost for Raid Tier 1 and 2 weapons and armor.  Also, every raid EXCEPT for Comet of Ahnket is getting an increase in the number of drops per boss.  However, CoA and Mind of Madness have both received nerfs to go alongside the shielding changes and to allow players to gear up in preparation for Starfall Prophecy.

RIFT 3.7: Hotfix #15 10/5/2016

MECHANICS
* We’ve updated how shield calcuations work.
1. 100% shields are calculated first, then all non 100% shields.
2. All shields now have a ‘bleed through’ amount based on their percentage.
Ex: An 85% shield will always bleed 15 damage of a 100 damage attack, no matter how many 85% shields you have. Previously, each shield would reduce the damage further.

ITEMS
* The cost of Tier 1 & 2 weapons and armor has been reduced by 25% for both credits and tokens.
* Tier 1 & 2 weapon and armor bundles now have a token price. The bundles are also bound to account.
* Note: Drowned Prophet’s War Axe has the incorrect price this week. It’ll be fixed in next week’s hotfix!
* Items with effects that increase token gain now affect Fragments of Darkness. Also, the passive patron buff will affect Fragment of Darkness gain as well.
* Illusory Motes are available on the store now under Equipment -> Upgrade Components.
