Update on T3 Planar Attunement

Despite Planar Attunement’s third tier popping back on the Public Test Server in early December, Trion didn’t include it in the in-progress PTS Patch Notes for Patch 2.2. This left some players confused as to whether or not it will be included in RIFT 2.2 or pushed back to another date. Daglar took some time on the official forums yesterday to confirm the fact that Trion does plan on releasing the third PA tier in 2.2. He also discussed the possibility of a future second tier for the PvP PA tree, Attunement of War:

Don’t assume anything about Tier 2 for PvP PA – it was never actually something that we had planned – nor did we communicate that it would ever be coming.

That said, one of our developers here really wants to add something for it so we’ll see.

Keep reading for Daglar’s explanation as to why the PA addition doesn’t show up on the in-progress notes.

So the current build that is up on PTS sure it has some 2.2 stuff in it – but it isn’t 2.2. I asked for that build to be published extra early due to fixes for the “double dip” problem.

A bunch of the class changes on PTS are not going to wait for 2.2 – that’s why we need players helping beat on those and make sure that the issue is resolved. The sooner we are confident that the double dip problem is 100% fixed and that we didn’t actually end up completely destroying the viability of warriors/chloros and others that were affected by the problem – the sooner those changes go to the live servers.

Trion recently made a call for players to assist in testing out some of the current changes on the PTS.
