  • Zis

    Cantha, please.

  • Sosh

    Permafrost xD

  • Loving the male heavy armour

  • Lana

    The “very” in “very coveted” is redundant. “Coveted” already means “extremely sought after”. Do you have someone proofread these? This certainly isn’t the first time bad wording or spelling has made it through.

    • Kasper Asmussen

      It means “Yearn to Possess”, and you can add adjectives to anything, so i don’t see the point in you being a stickler for definition.

    • Don36669

      Did you ever think that Dulfy might not be a native English speaker? Or do you know every little detail about the foreign language(s) you speak? In which case, good for you, but it’s unnecessary to be able to get around in a foreign language and an unrealistic standard to hold people to. You understood the message, and that’s what communication is about.

    • Sty

      I don’t think it is redundant, though it should probably be highly coveted rather than very coveted. Anyway, we are all counting on you for kindly proofreading all Dulfy’s articles from now on. Thanks a lot!

    • Carlos Oliveira

      Today in the daily news, internet grammar nazi obliviously unaware of what a pleonasm is. More at 7.

  • commentor

    Praise the butt caps.

  • Raizel


  • Mars

    I’m suddenly even more happy about the Permafrost I managed to flip for like 420g last month.

  • you need to have played for 6 years by the way so if you type /age in chat you can see your days played. You need to have played for 2190 days.

    • David Nielsen

      Is it 2190 or 2191 for the leap year?

      • Jeff Rollins

        2190. The game ignores the extra day from leap year, which means your char’s birthday will move backwards one day every 4 years.

    • BluJasmine

      It’s not just how long you’ve played. You also have to have created a character and not deleted it, to get the gifts. I bought the game 2 weeks after launch, but deleted my 1st toon. Next oldest is over a year younger, so I won’t get these until next year. Don’t delete toons if you can help it. :/

    • RKC

      I stop playing the game since the first expansion and I only really log in for the birthdays which I still get for my oldest characters.

  • Suan

    I would rather have the Dragon Emblem outfit that people were getting at the irl event over these outfits.

    Oh well, at least they gave us the permafrost dye.

  • aimasira

    wiki says that primordus dye kit is wrong and you will get the Elonian Beast Dye kit in its place.
    Is it true?

    • Jeff Rollins

      Yes, if you choose prinordus you’ll get Elonian Beast. Primodus was in last year’s gift so Elonian Beast is probably the intended dye kit for this birthday.

    • Not true, I managed to get the Permafrost dye from it

      • Griever

        Permafrost is available, as it is from the Jormag set. It is the Primordus set that is in question. Love the site, Dulfy!

      • JaceVandever

        It is true, the Primordus Dye Kit is actually the Elonan Beasts one, it’s mislabelled. I got the Sand Shark dye from it. The Jormag one is the Jormag one.

    • Rosa Illusa

      You choose Primordus set, you get a Primordus Dye Kit from it but when you open the Kit you get to choose from Elonian Beasts Dyes

  • Emil33

    So the Luminous armor are individual skins! 😀 Anyone doing any awesome mixing and matching with it yet? I love those heavy boots!

  • Vadim Karpov

    So fat.

  • Mr. Principal

    Seems like everyone chose permafrost dye..! Only 4 days ago I was thinking of buying it..! Anet o7

    • Victor Maze

      i mean yeah it was prominently one that was anticipated for last years set and especily for me was the last missing one at the time

  • Altauriel

    Just curious, do you know if the anniversary armor pack is one per character or one per account like the Luminous weapon packs?

    • One per account.

    • Atlas

      Does anyone know, what exactly you unlock? Really only one of the three or you get skin items for one but still unlock all three?

      • Jacky Andreasdóttir

        Skin Items for all 6 Parts of one Armor per account

    • lithlius

      one per account per year. next year , just like the weapon, youll have the chance of another of the armors and so on. so in 3 years youll have all 3

  • disqus_YGMwhKwlHS

    The light and medium armor look okay with the upper half but the legs and feet look a bit off. I do like the heavy armor but it just doesn’t look amazing tbh

  • Aen

    Another poor medium armor, the hood would be great but again there’s no mask.

    • Burn Bicz, BURN

      At least chest isn’t trenchcoat. For me Chest, legs and boots are fine.

    • Shaggy

      there arent too many hoods so theyre in the ok on this.

      still got that buttcape tho

      • Aen

        Light hoods, like Bladed or Funerary have nice masks while most of medium hoods don’t.

    • Alot

      The medium set has one of the least trench coaty coats ive seen. Not a bad addition.

  • Shaggy

    nice, clean designs. not really my favorite, but theyve done much worse.

  • RKC

    Where is the open visor for the heavy armor? I mean I only recived the six skins and no extra one.

  • JaceVandever

    Dulfy, it might be worth noting that the Primordus Dye Kit in the Triumphant Dye Kit is actually the Elonan Beasts Dye Kit, it contains some of the newest dyes like the awesome Sand Shark blue! I don’t know whether it’s a bug or incorrectly labelled, but I just got the Sand Shark dye from the Primordus kit. It had all the others too.

  • Man Man Lau

    character slot and bag slot is onsale now,40% off

  • BrownieC

    I really love the male heavy, but I can’t stand that stupid skirt they put on the female heavy. They should’ve just made it the same leggings.

    • Victor Maze

      fair but its not a costume so you can switch it out wearing full sets is boring anyway

    • Squatch

      I actually really like the side skirt on the female heavy. I like the concept of introducing variation so we can mix and match our own desired armor. As far as I know, the side skirt is new (outside of the rigid vigil medium legs). I think this leg armor will be fun to try to pair with some other pieces 🙂

  • Alot

    Surprised they locked 3 entire armor sets behind a 6 year wall when the lack of meaningful map rewards is the largest remaining complaint in game. I mean, I’m not aware of any way of rushing a 6 year lock-out period.

    Seeing how seriously they seem to take their founders though, I wonder what next year will bring. I guess glider or mount skins.

    • James Hartley

      The issue with fancy articulated or even legendary rewards is they still want their founders to play and pay. Giving them something too substantial would ruin motivation and or purchases.

      Saying this, the game owes founders nothing but to say thank you. They (including myself) got what we paid for and it is them offering this entertaining service.

      • Hmm, true, but a little gift isn’t so bad. I’m sure we founders probably got one or two of the Anet team a new house out of the exchange… Upper management stockholders, not the poor souls further down, but hey. lol

  • FrycoN

    No one mention 5k karma for 6th birthday.. HYPE

    • Alot

      I’m really looking forward to the 9th birthday with the obligatory lvl 90 booster scroll ^^

      • Squatch

        I’m looking forward to the 10th birthday gift, with 10 Mini Queen Jennas

        • shortorder

          would be funny if they made a group of jennas like the karka hatchlings

          • Squatch

            I’d love to see it using the same rig, just a group Jennas jumping over themselves.

  • Gus Sanchez

    The Triumphant dye is it one per character or one per account? I have 5 characters turning 6 at the same time.

    • Ares Zax

      One per character. The backpack, weapon and armor skins come from an achievement reward, so those are once per account.

  • Zavos

    Those armor sets look like they’re going to all clip horribly with charr tails.

  • Tsar CUBE

    Armour looks really bland and boring. Only great new thing is the heavy helm. Would be great to see some skimpy short skirts in armour for a change rather than this boring crap. (Looks decent on male though for some reason).

  • James Hartley

    I deleted my pre-release character ):
    It would of been nice to get 1 account reward ):
    My oldest character is 2003/2222 days (25/09/18 atm)
