Moving on to team news, players discovered the Raid Lead Designer Richard “Icarus” Byon has left Trion Worlds for another opportunity. Trion confirmed the departure: “We are extremely proud and grateful of the work he accomplished for RIFT; he is a talented designer and hard worker who brought a lot to the team and Trion as a whole. We have made gains to shift resources and continue to avidly work on instance and raid content. The RIFT team has some great content that we are working on while re-positioning our cadence and development focus.”
And as Summerfest approaches, so does a new patch for the game. Over on the test server, players are getting a look at various proposed gear and class changes. Out of all of these, the Warrior is getting the most attention and will see its soul points reset when the patch goes live.
