Last week we took a very first look at the Earth Wing of RIFT's upcoming raid, Infernal Dawn.
First Look at RIFT's new raid Earth Wing of Infernal Dawn
Now PC Gamer has got some more screenshots and details on the new dungeon, which pits players up against the Golden Maw, the Wanton, and their decidedly daft dragon leaders, Maelforge and Laethys.
Here are some details from PC Gamer:
The basic premise of the dungeon, located on Ember Isle. The cultist’s expansive cavern is broken up into three wings: Earth, Fire, and Gold
As you break into the Earth wing, you'll battle through tight caverns stuffed with glowing blue crystals, and have to down the massive baddies that have formed their scary-looking armor out of those crystals.
Next, you descend into the fire wing through circular corridors leading down with broken stone walkways and lava pouring out of cracks in the walls.
After finishing the first two steps, you will unlock the final wing of the game: housed behind two gigantic golden doors that swing open to reveal the largest treasure room you’ve ever seen. Gold is everywhere, and it’s yours for the taking. Oh, well, I guess you should kill the gigantic dragon that’s made entirely of gold before you start swiping her stuff. It’s going to be tough, though. Being made of gold, you see, has some major benefits when you’re in a room filled with nothing but gold.
In whole, Infernal Dawn will have 7 different bosses
, all with multiple phases and complex encounters that often rely on environmental hazards to keep players engaged. Each fight is designed to take about 4-5 minutes for an organized group of 20 players, and the dev team plans to add a new 10-person raid in patch 1.9.
Outside of raid content, new Instant Adventures are being added to Ember Isle (the Kelari homeworld added in patch 1.6), along with a new Looking For Guild tool to help you find some friends to run this new dungeon with when 1.8 launches in early April
