Infernal Dawn Coming Soon in RIFT 1.8 Patch

on March 23, 2012 6:15 PM

Trion announced today that the RIFT 1.8 patch is coming soon. The new content features a handful of updates with the described as “Earth and Fire have joined to smother Telara in gilded fury.”

Anyone else disappointed that Wind isn’t part of the group anymore?

Along with some nasty looking mobs comes a new 20-player raid called Infernal Dawn. Players will fight the dragons Maelforge and Laethys, along with their stronger followers in the middle of a volcano. 

It seems that any battle that involves hot lava is usually pretty important.

Two new tradeskills will also be added for fishing and survival, along with new leaderboards and a guild finder tool. Last on the list is a teleporter to Ember Isle for questing. The leaderboards should come in handy for the competitive players, but a guild finder tool always seems to rub me the wrong way.

What updates are you most looking forward to in the patch?
