This hotfix includes changing the Master Mode Dungeon reset day.
North American shards were down today for a the second hotfix of Rift 1.8. Here's the patch notes:
RIFT 1.8 Hotfix #2 - 8:00am PDT 4/25/12 [NA] - 1:00am GMT/2:00am BST 26/4/12 [EU]
- Master mode dungeons now reset on Sunday at 4:00am server time, instead of Saturday at 4:00am server time, for their second weekly reset. Wednesday reset day remains the same.
- The new Keepers crafting daily quests now turn in at Keeper Ambassador NPCs located at the Travel Stones outside of Meridian and Sanctum, so that characters below level 40 can complete these quests.
- Raid Assistants can once again directly invite players into their groups.
- Adjusted the audio of Razorbeast pets so they make noise less frequently.
- PvP Quests may now flag you for PvP while being progressed. Quests that do so will warn you in the quest accept and quest log windows.
- King's Breach: Hunter Suleng should no longer be killstolen by the friendly NPCs at the start and leave you unable to complete the zone quest.
- 'Speed Clears' now only begin when players physically leave the zone entrance area. They will no longer start incorrectly by a player disconnect or teleport.
- Fixed a combat case where beneficial abilities could apply to friendly faction characters as if you were in PvP against each other.

- Rate of Fishing skillups has been slightly lowered at low levels, and slightly increased at higher levels.
- The zone-specific Fishing Achievements (such as Shimmersand Fisherman) have been updated to include all possible fish per zone, including fish that appear in more than one. Completion or progress toward these achievements will not be lost, but previously catching the newly-added fish will not count toward the updated achievement.

- Blood Raptor: Rend can now be stacked up to 3 times per Blood Raptor attacking the target.
- Time Bomb: Fixed a bug so that only 1 Time Bomb per player can be attached to a target.
- Improved Entangling Trap: Now only requires 15 points spent in Saboteur to acquire instead of 20.
- Fixed an issue where some Guild Bank tabs would not show their items the first time the tab was selected after accessing the Bank.
- Seals, Fish, Hammerknell and Infernal Dawn-dropped crafting materials, and Infernal Dawn crafted items now appear under the correct Auction House categories.
