    Patch 1.3 had a ton of useful additions, but none may have the long term effect on Rift quite like that of free server transfers.

    When Rift was in its earliest beta stages the developers talked excitedly about their design system that allowed them to quickly develop and deploy content. While this sounded great, we took it with a grain of salt knowing that we had heard this all before and our expectations of quick rarely mesh with those of the people in charge of the games we play. In just under two months however, Rift has shattered previously held notions and brought a slew of new content out in record time. Detractors may say that update 1.1 was merely full of things that should have made the initial release; they can’t say the same about 1.2 which is driven by the requests of the playerbase. Including updates and upgrades to crafting, new planar abilities, a looking for group tool and the return of 10 player raiding (yay!) among other things, patch 1.2 looks to be the group’s most ambitious project yet. We recently sat down with Hal Hanlin, Chris Schmidt and even managed to detain Adam Gershowitz briefly to discuss some of the exciting new additions.
