        “Players who wanted to collect themed collections expressed frustration with content being packaged in separate chests. To address this, we are removing the chests that dropped pieces and parts and moving to more tiered and themed chests over time. Note that players that already have these chests will be able to roll them for a limited time.”

Cosmetics also now drop as full sets or collections within the Radiant Chest! We will be looking to increase the frequency of free Radiant Chest acquisition in the near future.”

    • Harrowing Horrors Collection will no longer be purchasable. Players on the Harrowing Harrows Questline may still complete it.
