"Blocked character invitations (to: guild, nation, family, friend, party, trade, duel) will be auto declined. "

Does this also apply to raid finder recruitment? Or if someone makes a public raid but is on my blocklist, I'll never be able to join?

If Raid invite is sent directly same way as other types of invites, then yes, it will get auto declined if you have raid leader in your block list. But you'll be able to apply to the raid through Raid Recruit.

1. Glad to see the bug fixes.
2. Woo! Winter stuff! Will we get the Winter's Messenger Costume available another way, or is it only going to be a contest prize? Hoping it's not exclusive.
3. Super excited we get pepper mint letters this year. I hope they're reasonably priced so I can afford to spell out "Merry Choimas" like I had on my original Ruby Solarium.
4. I know it's a bit late to make changes even if you guys were willing to, and I haven't seen the prices for this year.. But credit prices are on the rise due to a multitude of issues(pixel going down, low population of swipers, etc), and this restricts players who have limited or no donation ability to be able to enjoy market stuff, especially this time of year. I was hoping the admins could maybe re-evaluate the pricing on the holiday decorations,costumes, etc compared to last year so people can be able to deck out their houses properly. I'm scared to know how much the new bundles cost as they were ungodly steep on live servers too. Lower prices could mean the difference between someone putting $10-$20 in or none at all to get some things.

"Sealed Winter Wonderland Furniture" "Grants one of the following items..." (See Spoiler)

Are these random.... or can player select what they want?

Winter's Messenger Costume will be added later with the regular costumes rotations but prior the holidays end.

Random, but all wrapped, so if you get the one you don't like you'll be able to sell it or exchange with another player.

Okay, cool.

What's the reason for this? With credits being scarce, more RNG for cosmetic seasonal decor is a bit distasteful. It's one thing to put things in a bundle and have everything tradable so you can trade your extras for someone's duplicates, but to change the Winter Wonderland to a RNGbox is a bit frustrating.

I'm hoping that there is a much easier way to acquire credits coming in the near future. There's a few things that I'd like to buy but the process of getting credits is more convoluted than I like. I guess I'm spoiled by all the other games which has a direct purchase via credit/debit card.

Yea I don't like it's all rng. I won't get anything now, don't wanna waste what I got..

I liked that back on live I could spend my credits and get the weapon skins I want without wasting too much. Credits were scarce for me there as well and now that price has gone up on this server as well, it's sad but I feel same way as there regarding to buying credits off AH :c

The only "easy" way to acquire credits atm imo is winning a forum event x'D I won a couple but I'm now just saving what I got till I find something I really want (like the chimera agent costume.. been waiting for it for months :c).

And while the events are great, unfortunately it's unreliable way and it's not pumping much into the economy with new stuff rotated every week and now we're in holiday season where there's so much desirable things to buy in the shop. 😕

And not everyone has photoshop and/or drawing skills; which are a prerequisite of 99% of forum contests.

350 credits for the Wonderland RNG box? That's really gross. Nobody wants to spend 800g on a RANDOM decor piece. Even a 'pick one' is asking too much at 350 credits.

I don't think they look at current credit prices in AH when deciding on the price in marketplace. It's been same system for years, but in that time credit:gold ratio has nearly doubled now :c

Like, not even just that, even for real money sometimes these prices are kinda wtf? Like, there are 16 pieces that are RNG, if you want one of each you'd have to open 16 and hope you get lucky, sure this doesn't account for swapping duplicates, but how many people are spending 5k, 6k, 7k in hopes of getting what they want? These aren't like the 100 credit RNG boxes. I might be able to justify opening them at 100 credits for a random of 16 pieces. But not at 350.

Just really sad about Choimas this year :/

(Side note,I really wish they would take into account the player economy and availability when they price things. A year ago we had 800-900g per 1000, but this year 1400g became the norm, and now it's probably going to stay above 2k at this rate/population. Lower income or casual players won't be able to get things often and will have to make an even tougher decision between sporadic fun cosmetics or actual progression.)

When claiming the Winter Maiden Boot from button next to Loyalty Token,

Text says that you should be able to collect THREE Winter Maiden boot every 120 minutes, being able to claim ONE time a day:


This text is very similarly worded to loyalty tokens, which says you will get 3 Loyalty Token every 60 minutes:


However, upon claiming it I only got ONE Winter Maiden Boot, but as you can see recieved the correct number of tokens:



Where is everyone's other 2 Winter Maiden Boots :D????
Or is that text wrong :D?
