February is a month of celebration... from ringing in the Yokai New Year to the SuperBowl /party all the way to Hero's Heart Day! To help ALL our heroes get in the spirit, this month's seasonal set features a new set straight out of Empress Miko's royal Yokai Court: the Obsidian Samurai.
Starting Friday, February 1st at 12:01 AM EST (that's server time), unlock the Obsidian Samurai armor and all its accessories!
There are two ways to get the gear:
1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD
2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.
The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).
The set includes:
Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year.
September: Celestial Naval Commander
November: Harvest Hunters
December: Northern Wanderer
January: ArchFiend OverLord
February: Obsidian Samurai
March - August: ??? - come back to see what we'll bring!
Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus?
Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.
This set will return EVERY February, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in 2020, or 2021, or 2022, etc.
If this isn't the monthly upgrade bonus, what IS the bonus?
You can see all the available upgrade bonuses on our upgrade site. The next bonus set will be available soon, so keep an eye on the Design Notes!
What if I just want ONE of the items?
You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through January 31st.
Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?
You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
