During yesterday’s RIFT portion of the Trion Friday live stream extravaganza, Elrar, Dead Simon, and OverloadUT talked a bit about what Trion is working on next for the game and answered questions from the community. Not too much new information was revealed, but here are a new and/or interesting bits we discovered:

  • The new level 60 revamped Expert dungeon coming in 2.4 is being called Twisted Realm of the Fae and will present a nightmare-like version of the original dungeon. The last boss will be an evil-er version of Twyl.
  • One of the new Chronicles coming in 2.4 will be a small-scale version of Infernal Dawn. It should be around as difficult as Queen’s Gambit.
  • The new Chronicles, etc., should be coming up on the PTS relatively soon.
  • Trion will unveil a new mount soon. It sounds pretty awesome.
  • Trion’s working on some performance issue fixes that may be ready for release soon.
  • Simon briefly mentioned another of the PvP dimension items– a 5-minute timer that can be used for deathmatches, etc.
  • They’re thinking about revamping all of the level 50 Experts to shift them into level 60 versions, but nothing is definite so far.
  • As mentioned in earlier hints regarding 2.4, one of the new raids will focus on chasing the Architects into the Earth Plane while the other will concentrate on the opening of the Infinity Gate.
  • Trion is in the process of trying to figure out a better way to showcase vanity pets. There’s talk about letting dimension owners display pets inside their dimensions.
  • The next tier of PA levels will allow players to branch out a bit more.
  • PvP dimensions will probably be enter-able through the dimension interface UI. The dimension owner will have to set the permissions correctly, of course.
  • A separate friend list and ignore list is being worked on for dimensions.
  • If you’ve ever thought about how handy it would be to create a macro that switches between your wardrobe sets, you’re in luck! A suggestion was made in the TwitchTV chat, and before the live stream was done recording, one Trion engineer completed the request and had the macro command ready! It’s not quite in-game yet, but should be available within the next couple of hotfixes.
