One of the big complaints with bring back Crystal cove, Risia, Festival etc is that there is nothing new to get.

So I suggest cosmetics. and maybe pets.

Crystal cove add an Eye Patch

Risia add a fur coat or armor with lots of fur trim

It would give more of us a reason to participate in the events. I did the latest version of Mabar just because I wanted the Pumpkin head, although the festive augments were nice too. Maybe add new versions of those to the other events.

I seem to recall the biggest issue with these old events being they were not updated to current standards.. its the same old s.

Adding cosmetics is a bonus.. but really.. update the old stuff.

Agreed, add higher loot versions of current stuff, but even just some cosmetics and/or pets would be a bonus.

We too like the idea of adding cosmetics to events, and it's something we want to do more of in the future. We're also aware that people would like us to update the items in some of the older festivals as well. Ultimately it comes down to carving out the development time to do that instead of something else.

If you update items from older festivals, please keep in mind that some of us have spent dozens/hundreds of hours grinding out the older versions of the items and aren't thrilled about starting from scratch. There should be at least a partial trade-in for the older versions of festival items if they're upgraded. I realize that you want people to re-play content with revamped items, but it's alienating to have to start out an identical grind again when there's no trade-in option even for a partial ingredient return (this was a problem with how the Cannith challenge items were upgraded).

I would love for new cosmetics to be added to the events.

Can us ladies have this for next Crystal Cove? Pretty please?

Sophie: *grabs her pom poms* Cordovan! Cordovan! He's our man! If he can't do it, no one can!
Sophie's Dagger: This is silly.
Sophie: Sssshhhhhhh! I'm trying to get a new outfit.

Really, the items from festivals became invalidated by excessive power creep. How many of us would've ground out the items if we realized we'd just have to do the exact same amount of grind in the not-so-distant future because of power-leap game design?

If these items are revamped to make them relevant again, a trade-in option for the old version of items is absolutely needed in order to cut down on the re-grind for the people who ran these festivals like mad in order to make these items. I have many items on alts that I literally never used because they were for less-often-played alts and the items became invalidated by unrestrained power creep...

There should've been a partial ingredient return trade-in for the older versions of the Cannith challenge items when they were revamped also.

What was the investment for the tattoos that players submitted for contests? I mean picking winners is a time consumption thing, but how about picking through submissions and adding them to the product?
