Tweaks include Carnival fixes.
The Rift North American shards went down at 8:00am Pacific for a hotfix. Here's the notes:

WORLD EVENT - CARNIVAL OF THE ASCENDED
- Happy Birthday, RIFT! Welcome to the Carnival of the Ascended!
- World Event phase quest updates no longer display on the mid-screen splash text.
- Balloon pets are now Bind On Account.
- Riftstalker: Rift Barrier: Fixed a case where Rift Guard with points spent in Rift Barrier would still deal damage after the first tick of a DoT applied to the Rogue (and causing issues with being locked in combat).
- Ember Isle: Scouring the Dirt: Fixed this quest breaking if the Runesappers reset incorrectly.
- Hammerknell Fortress: The floor in the throne room should stop going non-visible at times.
- Fixed a case where a transferring character would get an incorrect coinlock error.
