The New and Updated Prestige Pack is Now Available!


Today, we’ve launched the new and updated Prestige Pack. We’ve made some changes based on your feedback, adding some new items and new features, and making it an even better value for our players.

First is the Prestige Badge. This item is a 30-day badge that, among other things: Gains exclusive dungeon buffs for you and your party, generates up to 12 Prestige Crystals per day (which can be traded to special vendors for rewards), buffs movement speed, Kinah gain, and adds a party-wide drop rate boost. We’re so sure you’re going to love this, that we are offering a 6-hour Prestige Badge to all players via in-game survey. For more information about this badge and everything it does, check out the survey in game. You can also read our complete guide on the Prestige Badge.

We’ve also added a Rewards program as well. For each month you stay subscribed to the new Prestige Pack, you’ll receive additional items as a reward. These rewards increase in value over time. Visit the Prestige Pack page to check out the first six months of rewards.

For complete information on all the items in the new Prestige Pack, visit the Prestige Pack page in the Black Cloud Marketplace!

Store Update - May 7, 2014

With the weather warming up, new party attire has been added to the store and a few others discounted. However, a party isn’t a party without the dance moves to throw down. If you have friends who have heavy feet, give them the subtle hint with our now all-tradeable dance emoticons. There is more to this store update so read on for more!

New & Discounted Costumes

Dress for the occasion with the new costume skins or pick up one of the discounted ones!


Dance Emoticons

Dance emoticons are now permanently discounted and you can buy all the Dances in one bundle.

Warehouse & CUBE Expansion

Now as one ticket rather than three confusing tickets, expand your Inventory up to three times with these. (Ticket cannot be used to expand your inventory a fourth time.) These expansion tickets now come in a tradeable box, too!

Permanent Wing Skins

We're working on replacing 30-day Wing skins with their permanent versions and these three are our first switch over.


Additionally, we're doing a bit of spring cleaning around the store: Transformation candies will now be listed under the Boost category, and to remove clutter, we have retired the 30-day dye items.
