There’s a new item previewing on the PTS version of RIFT‘s Item Store, and it’s going to make it a wee bit easier to cover all of the crafting professions in RIFT without having to resort to a healthy supply of alts. A couple of weeks ago, Daglar hinted that Trion was going to be adding an item to the store that allows players to unlock one additional profession slot per character. Yesterday that item showed up on the PTS. It’s called a Trade Skill Extension and costs 1200 Credits at the moment. Credits are the only way to purchase these.
There has been a slight change to how they work, however. Instead of only allowing players to unlock one additional profession slot, these Extensions can be purchased multiple times and will even allow players to unlock all nine main crafting professions on the same character. Presumably, these unlocks will only work on the character the item is purchased on and aren’t account-wide, but we’re still waiting to hear official confirmation on that assumption.
