Black Lion Skins from 2012
If you were unable to grab the Halloween skins from the very first Halloween (2012), you are given a chance this Halloween but it will cost you.
Near the old Black Lion Trading Company is a skritt named Collector Terksli. He collects Shiny Foil Candy Wrappers that are rare drops from Trick or Treat Bags (I got about 5 from 250 bags) or bought on the gemstore (25 gems each, 5 for 118 gems, or 25 for 500 gems). Each candy wrapper counts as a raffle ticket. He will collect them for two weeks starting from Oct 21 until Nov 4 and at end of the the two weeks he will distribute out to random lucky winners
- 100 Greatsaw Greatsword Skins
- 100 Ghastly Grinning Shield Skins
- 200 Grinning Gourd Rifle Skins
- 200 Severed Dagger Skins
- 200 Chain Sword Skins
- 200 Scythe Staff Skins
In other words, the more candy wrapper you give to him, the more raffle tickets you purchase and the bigger chance you will win a random skin from 2012. Some skins are over 1000 gold on the TP while others are below 100 gold.
Question: Are winners per world, per region, per data center or Selected globally?
Answer: Winners will be selected globally. This is only true for Europe and North America. China does not participate in the raffle.
Question: The most desirable skins are so globally only 100 times available?
Answer: That is correct.
Question: Is it possible for an account to win more than once?
Answer: This is possible. It is minimal, but present.
Question: Increase submitted more candy wrappers profit Change? If the opportunity for profits character or account based?
Answer: More candy wrappers give a higher chance of winning. The system works account wide and is not restricted.
Question: How will players receive their winnings?
Answer: The winners will be randomly selected. The first drawn by lot by the system players will receive Greatsword skins. The next 100 Shield Skins – and so on. The prizes will be sent via in-game mail.
Question: Can players pick and choose what you win?
Question: Is there a system in which players come first preferred are (first come first serve)?
Answer: No. The system lost the winners and shipped according to the prices. Players have no influence and can not mutually grab those profits.
Question: Will the gains be traded in the trading post?
Answer: Yes. Should you win a weapon with which you can not do anything, you have the chance to sell them.
Soon to be discontinued weapon sets
The following weapon skins are no longer available for rest of the year from the Black Lion Weapon Specialist from Nov 18.
- Dragon’s Jade
These skins all cost from 5-7 Black Lion tickets each so they are already fairly expensive. They are likely removed to make room for newer weapon sets.
