So I know Ember Isle has not released yet and that is a epic crap ton of content by itself, but with 1.6 coming on Nov 16th I am wondering is it possible to establish a predictable pattern from Trion:
1.1 - 3/30/2011 - 30 days from launch date
. This update held a world event that emphasized death rifts and added a new 20-man raid, The River of Souls
1.2 - 5/10/2011 - 41 days from 1.1
. This update emphasized earth and fire rifts. It also introduced crafting rifts, a 5th role, slivers, and a new 10-man raid, Gilded Prophecy
1.3 - 6/22/2011 - 43 days from 1.2
. This update emphasized water and death rifts and introduced a new 20-man raid, Hammerknell. The game also introduced guild banks and synergy crystals; a new type of item that provides a customized bonus to raid-level gear
1.4 - 8/3/2011 - 42 days from 1.3
. This update emphasized life and water rifts. This update introduced PvP rifts, alternate warfront, cross-shard LFG tool, a new epic quest line, and a new 10-man raid, Drowned Halls.
1.5 - 9/28/2011 - 56 days from 1.4
. Features new content such as Chronicles which are entry level dungeons made for 1 to 2 players and advance the story. Veteran rewards that reward players for the amount of time they have been playing RIFT and it includes the new Planar Attunement which allows level 50 players to advance their roles further and choose what Plane they will specialize in.
1.6 - 11/16/2011 - 49 days from 1.5
- Pretty huge update new zone, artifacts, new 10man raid and various other features described as a mini expansion
30 + 41 + 43 + 42 + 56 + 49 = 261/6 = 43.5 days per release average
ok So now that we have a average when will 1.7 most likely be and this is important because everyone expects 1.6 is the counter to SWToR. This puts 1.7 around 12/28/2011 because every Rift patch is done on a Wednesday.
This also makes sense because 1.6 has a Christmas event and it does not make sense to have that event go past 12/25/2011. I HAVE NO CLUE what is in 1.7 All I know is it will involve that zone Northeast of Droughtlands and is called Planetouched Wilds
