Storm Legion: Storm Breaker Protocol - Vellion the Pestilent

Storm Legion beta weekend 2 is over and so is the NDA!  Here's an awesome video showcasing a boss fight in the new level 54 dungeon called, Storm Breaker Protocol.  We called it!  They are definitely making usage of that new jump feature we first saw appear in the Maelforge fight and again in the Volan reveal video.  Storm Legion is shaping up to practically be a brand new mmorpg in and of itself!

Check out the video below and thanks to YouTube user Seatin Rift for uploading and sharing this with all of us.

Overcast Minisode Episode 1: Fundamentals Of A Class

Hey Overcast fans! We've got a little treat for you today. It's not much but we wanted to say hi and see what everyone thinks about patch 1.11. In this first episode of a probable series of "minisodes" Matt is solo and seeking to spark a little discussion about what makes a soul or a combination of souls interesting and fun. With all the changes across the board to the souls in 1.11, Matt got to thinking about this fairly in-depth. Have a listen, enjoy and leave us a comment below, email, facebook, or tweet with what you think about the topic!

Discontinuation Notice for iTunes Audience

I've decided to get on the mic and personally say farewell to our audience. Those who frequent our website or the forums already know everything contained in this recording but we wanted to be sure our audience on itunes and stitcher radio were aware of the situation as well. Also wanted to bring attention to my (Matt's) personal TwitchTV channel, in-case anyone feels like stopping in to say hello and see what we're up to, now that the show is over.

Overcast Shutting Down

Hey Overcast fans. Matt here to clarify a few things. I've been wanting to post about the status of the show for some time now but wanted to wait until I knew for sure what was going to happen. Sorry that it took us so long to give you an official update.

So, to clarify, we have decided to stop the show due to personal reasons. More specifically, I myself do not have the time or energy to spend playing RIFT anymore. Obviously we can't build you a quality show without spending a good amount of time playing the game itself. Real life has given me a swift boot in the rear and since then my focus has to shift onto other real life matters. Also, our decision to discontinue Overcast was in no way affected by any of the reactions to episode 25.

Thank you so much for your support of the show. We loved doing it for everyone and want to be able to continue it in the future. The show is however currently discontinued indefinitely. We may return for Storm Legion but if we don't, we want to wish everyone the best of luck and lots of fun with the expansion.

Thank you again for being an awesome audience!

-Matt (Lead Host, RIFT Overcast)

Community Voice guests Khan & Myrkel, from US guild No Quarter, join us this week to discuss a wide array of topics including patch 1.10, dimensions, the support role in Storm Legion, and much more.  Elrar was lurking in the chatroom and tossed us a couple of crumbs as well.  Later on, our guests give us some insight into their guild and what its like to be a part of No Quarter.  We discover a little about what happened with the recent exploiting that lead to some controversy regarding credit for the Maelforge world first kill.  And most importantly, we're on a boat!  Don't worry, you'll understand.

Episode 24: Potatomancer Revealed

What a jam-packed episode we have for you all this week! There's so much that we were live for almost 2 hours and had to stop ourselves from talking even more! Khel joins Matt & Joe again this week as we discuss the latest news regarding patch 1.10, Rift's newest mount is a tad to 'cheeky', the almost complete removal of factions on pve servers, and Trion's newest 'experiment' with normalizing gear stats for instanced pvp. We've also pulled several juicy tooltips from Trion's revealing of the new mage soul, the Harbinger, which we discuss in great depth! Everything is better with sprinkles, especially this week's episode of Overcast.
