In preparation for Storm Legion, the first expansion for Rift, Trion has released a major patch today. Patch 1.11 contains all the changes to player Souls (but not the new souls available with the expansion) as well as a ton of Crafting and general changes to the game. Tempest Rising also heralds the beginning of a new World Event that will set the state for the arrival of Crucia and her minions in Storm Legion. The game changes are so many that the patch notes are divided into several forum threads. I’ve attempted to link each thread here, but there may be more available on the Rift forums.
