What can I buy with Fortune Scraps?

Where do I get Fortune Scraps?
Fortune Scraps are obtained from Kite Fortunes. Kite Fortunes give you a 10 minute boost and can give you either the regular Fortune Scrap or the Golden Fortune Scrap. Both versions of Fortune Scraps are account bound.
1) You can find them as random drops off various open world mobs
2) You can find Kite Fortunes from Zephyr Sanctum Kite baskets you can find in all open world zones except Orr (they are marked on the map). The drop rate is fairly low (1 in 10 or less). Each location can be looted once per day per account.
3) You can find them as drops from creatures spawned by Unusual merchants in Labyrinthine Cliffs (drop rate also fairly low).
4) You can purchase Kite Fortunes directly from the Gemstore.(5 for 120 gems, 10 for 200 gems, 25 for 400 gems)
