Trade stacks of these banners to the event NPCs for reward boxes.

New Costumes

Pick from a selection of hats, a new leopard swimsuit and the Flower Child costume.

Permanent Wing Skins

We've replaced another set of 30-day wings with their permanent versions.

Palomeno Heorn

The Palomeno Heron is similar to the Ruddytail Heorn mount, but lighter in color.

Combat Lockbox Key

The Combat Lockbox got another prize list revamp. Unlock the new rewards with the Combat Lockbox Key.

Discounted Items

For the next two weeks, Princely Ailu Egg (30 Days) and the Dye: Rich Hot Purple have had their prices slashed in half!
