Rift 1.2 patch notes revealed

Facebook! Slivers! Wardrobe! LFG!

Developer Trion has announced the full patch notes for Rift update 1.2, which arrives this Tuesday, 10th May.

Most of the content we've heard about, but not Facebook integration. With this you can share screenshots, YouTube video links and Achievements on your Facebook profile directly from the Rift game.

Trion will build up to 1.2's arrival from today with a Spoils of War prelude. Earth and Fire rifts are opening and spewing dragon eggs and monsters into the world. There will be daily quests in Meridian and Sanctum for those who want them.
