    They mean those overpriced Legacy Powers for 2 Million Questonite and the Overseer one for 6 Million even. They keep trying this each year now with them, like someone will spend millions on one travel power, seriously.

    Those were there before, did they take them away at some point?

    I think they also added device versions of them.

    Forgot to mention the free "Virtual Armor" costume set in the zstore this week.

    Thanks for making the cyberpunk costume drops get used right away so they can't be traded! ^.^

    Last week kind of anti climatic event store and dailies wise but I don't want to farm no more anyways. Thanks work the curly hair and the cat dance though. It has been a hefty farm for the past month. Let's jump into bloodmoon right away next week.

    I was hoping the Foxbatcon Bag would also be in the store this week. Alas.

    it's a good thing that it can be choose to enable or disable it, because it was quite annoying to be forced to see something I didn't want to see not only in normal, but also during battle.
    It would be even better if this setting could be applied to Super Magnifier as well.

    These devices should be used only by those who want to use them, and seen only by those who want to see them.
    Because this is not a requirement, it's just a device for fun.

    I have a suggestion for Super Maginifer Aura.

    I don't know if people prefers it working that way but as soon as you are not in combat it regrows instantly. Creating an annoying 'I don't no if I'm big or small loop.'

    Suggestion:

    Maybe put a 5 second aura cool down on it. So it will only activate 5 seconds out of battle.

    Again I don't know if people would not like this. Just my opinion. Because I punch a chair I got small the got back big asap. I could see having this equiped in certain situations off putting.

    And it's OFF by default. So if you have never ever touched the option, you haven't lost anything. Everything is like it has allways been.

    So I was dumb and saved up a bit too much favor on one character, does anyone remember if the previous weekly stores (travel powers, hideouts, archetypes) rerun when they bring all the event stores back at the end of the year? Because I've got a lot of leftover tokens and nothing I really want to use it on now!
  • redcastle56redcastle56 Posts: 105 Arc User
    IIRC, the weekly stores do not come back.

    Added Curly hair option. This is a default costume piece.

    Thank you. It was one of those simple pieces that was weirdly missing as an option.
