Arguably the eyes of most RIFT players and fans this weekend were on the first closed beta test for Storm Legion, which is still top secret and under an NDA. There was some recent news that players can talk about though, including this exciting post by Senior Content Designer Tacitus in the General Discussion forum on October 5th:

I am just going to preview this note from the upcoming patch notes:
* You may now equip items of any armor type in your Wardrobe. Mix and match – the world is your closet!
Hold on, let me repeat that.
* You may now equip items of any armor type in your Wardrobe.
Thus far players have had their cosmetic gear limited by armor types, meaning that plate-wearing warriors can dress up in anything while poor mages are limited to cloth gear for their Wardrobe. After this change mages can wear plate, rogues can wear robes — it will be chaos! Fun, fun, chaos.
Tacitus said that this change would be in the “upcoming patch”, which implies 1.11 and not Storm Legion proper. That means we’re likely to see it happen by the end of October at the latest.
