The August crate is finally here, and jam packed full of exclusive new treats that you and your friends are sure to enjoy. This months crate is slightly themed as "Japanese Culture". For those of you who may not know what our Monthly Crates are all about, I'll be happy to explain! Our Monthly crates are loot crates that can be purchased once a month by users in the community. These crates are limited to their specific month of release, and the exclusive loot inside can only be obtained that month! Every month is guaranteed to have something new and exclusive for you to find! Grab a crate now while they last! Exclusive Loot - New Prefixes Kawaii, Senpai, Waifu, Sensei, Japanese, Weeb, Samurai, Ninja, Geisha, Sumo New Trail - SAMURAI STRIKE Being a Samurai is totally in season. This month we are looking to unleash your inner warrior that's sure to make you feel... dashing. In this crate you will be gifted one exclusive trail called; SAMURAI STRIKE. This trail consists of a Japanese inspired yin and yang like design, with a hidden ability inside! With this trail attached, you can crouch and click in order to use your Samurai Strike Dashing ability leaving behind a trail of fire and smoke! Although this offers you a cool new way to travel, do keep in mind that you can not phase through builds, or use it in PVP zones. This trail is exclusive to the the August, 2019 Monthly Crate, so we encourage you all to obtain it while supplies last if its something you truly desire collecting! New Custom Item - SIAMESE PET CAT This month we are celebrating Japanese Culture, and what better way then to introduce a new PET! This Monthly Crate we are introducing another companion to the server, the Siamese Cat pet! Along with your new pet, you will be receiving the exclusive Sushi Pet Trail that sprouts various types of fishies from your pet. This pet can be obtained through a pet ticket found within all Monthly Crates. In order to summon your new pet, simply use the /pets menu provided in game. This new pal of yours will follow you around until your hearts content, but remember, the Warzone is no match for these little guys and thus your pet will hide away if you enter. Don't worry though, the moment you step foot back into a PvP free zone, your buddy will be right by your side again. This mysterious book has been ripped from the hinges of an official Monthly Crate. Inside reads an abundance of exclusive prefixes that can only be worn by the wisest of players. For those of you who aren't interested in purchasing a Monthly Crate, or perhaps just wish to unlock more exclusive and rare prefixes, this is the openable for you! The prefixes found in Monthly Crates are limited and once the crate is gone, so are the prefixes. This means that no matter what, obtaining a prefix is rare to come by. However, in order to keep the rarity of these prefixes alive, we have made it so that you can only purchase up to three prefixes a month. Once the new month arrives, the Prefix Spinner will expire, thus you will not be able to use it any longer. Make sure you take advantage of this new in store item so that you can display all of your unique, fun and rare collections. Obtain 3x limited prefix associated with the active monthly crate per spinner. This item can only be purchased from our shop three times per month.
