    I actually thought about getting this until I saw that the rings are worthless. They only scale to Level 60. It seems like all of the scaling gear stops at 60. Not much of an incentive.

    That's the trouble with offering gear in packs like this... it's hard to make it enticing without stepping on top of some other reward from another event.

    Maybe your engineer types should look at the feasibility of something like the ability to unlock a second seal or trinket slot? Or some sort of other boost using the old CQ power technology - call it karma - and as you gain karma from different offers/events, it would grant you benefits in the same way the old CQ power did.

    Or include a token that lets the buyer choose any one mount. You'd sell the heck out of those.

    I didn't like how Trion handled the greyhound charity thing (RNG boxes, unknown and then known low donation ratio), but I can back this. Thanks for transparency on percentage and guaranteed, known stuffs.

    More of this sort of thing! The clearly stated donation ratio wasn't quite enough alone to sell it at the price, and then I realised it was a pack and not just another sadmaking gamble box (I never get the Thing I want out of those and they just make me sad), so I had to have it. And now I have it. And it gave me a happy. I've been asking for more dimension critters since returning to the game, and now I have some and they're adorable and I feel even better about it because I'm quite fond of the Earth, as far as planets go it's the most habitable one I know of. The combination of cute things and warm fuzzies is super effective, so I say again for the people up the back: More of this sort of thing!

    Default Why the Shal Korva rep requirement on the rings?

    I'm a returning player that has a mid 20's main and I was interested in buying the Earth Day to help contribute to Hotfix but I haven't because of the Shal Korva rep required for the 1-60 ascended scaling rings.

    Why was the Shal Korva rep made as a requirement to equip a lower level item?

    You don't need rep to equip it, I sent it to a lv 30 alt with exactly zero Shal Korva rep and she equipped it just fine. I think you'll find it's a holdover from the description being c/ped off an item you need Shal Korva rep to buy. You won't have any trouble using the item.

    That line really should be removed from the description, it's easy to see how it could be misleading, but I doubt they'll be able get to it before the current offer expires.

    As noted by Phaeth, the ring will be equiapable by any character. The requirement would have been for purchasing directly, and even that is in error and should be removed.

    This package is nice and I bought it. Thank you
    It would be nice to buy these Items afterwards in addition in the shop (like the Bogling and Statuettes) because I wish to have more creatures of one sort and not only one.
    These cute animals are not really qualified to stay always alone, they need a herd.

    Unfortunately I opened the package with my main character (65er cleric) and can´t use the ring now, because it is for clerics only.

    The set up of this charity event is much more appealing than the last. Fluff items are clearly defined (not a gambling box), the donation percent is reasonable, and the charity group involved is tossing website and social media love at Trion for their help, which is positive game exposure.

    Plus Treants. Bonus kudos for Treants.

    The only thing that sucks is we have to "hotfix Earth" 4 times at a cost of over 8,000 credits to cover all 5 callings as the rings are not mailed to all characters on your account.

    Warrior
    Mage
    Rogue/Primalist
    Cleric

    At least with the Ascended Cloak and Ascended Trinket, these were truly account-wide!

    I already tried putting my Rogue ring in the shared tab and picked it up on my Cleric to see if it would switch, and it did not. It still said "Rogue" in red (unusable.)

    Pfft...
