Greetings Daevas,


We are aware that the game servers have been crashing and we have an ongoing investigation to find out the cause of the issues. Currently, we do not have an estimate on how long the investigation will take. However, we will update the community as we progress.

Update: Rifting Trial Survey

Greetings Daevas,


We'd like to thank those of you who have participated in our rifting trial!

As you may have notice there is a rifting survey currently running on the servers. We'd like for you to take a moment, if you have not already done so, to fill out the rifting survey for us. This survey has an item attached to it; this is just a small token of our appreciation for all the helpful information the community has provided for us. The data we gather will allow us to make future changes to rifting allowing us to come to a happy medium for most players.

This survey will run till Wednesday, February 2nd, and will be accompanied by the servers being placed back to the way they were with the buffs before the rifting trial, after maintenance. Once we have tabulated the data we received, we will proceed to make a decision as to what level the buffs should be and the frequency we will have rifting events.
