RIFT 1.7 Hotfix #6 - 8:00am PST 2/29/12 [NA] - 2:00am GMT 29/2/12 [EU]
- Ember Isle can no longer be accessed by characters under level 48. Characters currently in Ember Isle below this level will be teleported back to their home city.
- Updated the way Rifts and Invasions track contribution so you should be more reliably rewarded for participating.
- A number of random Bind On Equip Rift drops that incorrectly had no level requirements to equip now actually do.
- Various fixes to Vote Kick while in a raid-converted group in LFG or Instant Adventure.
- Using /target with a partial name now prefers to select living targets over dead ones.
- Instant Adventure: Jerra Loves Hillsborough: This adventure should no longer fail to complete when you kill Androj too quickly.
- Guardian wedding instance is now accessible by RIFT Lite accounts.
- Gold Wedding Rings are now able to be equipped by RIFT Lite players.
- Piñatas that drop Hammerknell artifacts now drop a more appropriate amount of them - not multiples of the same item.
- Fixed a bug allowing characters to receive too many beads from grey-con Piñatas.
- Made some small tweaks to Piñata loot to balance out the relative frequency of 'bonus' drops.
Continue after the jump for the rest of the patch notes.
