Daglar has posted a letter to the community to provide us with a preview of Rift Patch 3.0: Nightmare Tide, the new expansion coming later this year.
We’re taking the battle to the planes themselves, starting with our buddy Akylios. I recommend reading the whole article, but just a few highlights include:
– 5 New levels, up to 65
– new Minions – non-combat pets that you can send on their own missions
– new dungeons & raids
– new equipment slots
– new type of rift – Nightmare Rifts
Lots of new loot and excitement. Daglar also mentioned that current top-tier gear will be good enough to carry you all the way to 65. That first green drop from a quest won’t replace that hard-earned dungeon armor.
We should actually see the first new dungeon with the 2.8 patch.
