Rift Patch 4.5 Is Live With Massive Balance Changes

Rift launched patch 4.5 today and with it comes a flurry of balance changes with big changes for almost every class along with dozens of bug fixes. While today's patch didn't add any new content to the game it is following the blueprint laid out in Rift's developer letter in that they want to fix existing problems before introducing new content.

Rift's progression servers, called Rift Prime, will soon be adding the River of Souls raid along with the new prelude event (which will also be launching on live servers).
