    These events keep saying wednesday to wednesday. EU maintenance is on a thursday. It's intended we get just 6 days or us players in EU are thursday to thursday? alternatively is the EU being patched on wednesday now?

    It sounds like it is "immediately after update" until "up until next update"...so still 7 days, whether update is Wednesday 7am US Pacific Time or Thursday 2pm GMT.

    All I see here is more fluff from the store for credits.

    There is a tonne of things the game needs fixing for so refraining from credit advertising and focusing time towards repairing the game as a priority might be better time spent?

    Will these items be purchasable again at a later point as well or is this a one time deal only....

    (just a bit worried since the year of the dog only comes every 12 years.... I don't want this to turn out like the Earth Day dimensional animals where I regret not getting enough....)

    maybe it could be a dog days of summer event... I'm not sure I'd like to go that long without being able to get more dim corgis though...

    Things here should return, and I suspect a Dog Days of summer might become an annual event.

    That said, there is no promise that items here might not show up other times during the year.

    I love the Dog Days of Summer idea.
    What I'm not so impressed with is that it is all CREDIT buys.
    Can't there be alternative ways to buy things rather than credits?
    Not everyone has a hidden rich uncle to finance their gaming, or is in a highly paid job with a large disposable income. I suspect an event like this would be way more popular if there was other ways of acquiring items.

    People mentioned on chat that there is a bug that prevents people on buying the new mounts.
    Please have a look

    Can't tell if serious?

    The company needs to make money or the game shuts down. Fluff for money is the best kind of free to play.

    It looks like the these are sharing the purchase lockout with the original Ashen Greathound from the old lock box. So anyone with that mount is blocked. We are compiling a new patch build now so we can get this fixed up by tomorrow.

    This will also be fixed in the quick update tomorrow. As well as allowing the dimension NPCs to be giftable.

    I just wish they had given another way of getting these items as well.
