Change your hair color to match every dungeon? The possibilities are endless. You could be the richest player in Eberron! Simply enter today for a chance to win 100,000 Turbine Points!

+2 tier bonus to loot and the Endless Night Festival is back, from Monday November 22nd through Sunday November 28th.
Here are some screenshots of the new cosmetic armor. As far as anyone can tell, the cosmetics are based upon the armor type and varies by race...so dragontouched plate armor will look the same as starter fullplate, icy raiment will look the same as outfit of stability, and so on.
In case you didn't know, Update 8 is currently being previewed on the Lamannia test server. We may not be able to get over there and test them on our mains thanks to the problems with Character Copy pointed out by Isilmerel.
