Presumably we all know that the Mountaineer set states quite clearly in its description that it should be available in the trade bar store at the release of Mod 16. Likewise I imagine that we all also know that it isn't....
So the big question is why?
The set can't be broken because as far as I'm aware it came in the million dollar undermountain bundle. Thus I expect some players already have it.
Likewise, I imagine it could be argued that the delay is so those who bought the set get it first or some other such nonsense reason but if that was the case why not simple say that in the description. After all if it had then people like me wouldn't be annoyed by its absence.
Furthermore, given that you buy it with trade bars (or not as the case appears at the moment) which you get primarily from VIP or buying keys then in essence anyone who does purchase it with trade bars effectively bought it with real money anyhow.
So why hasn't it been released in the trade bar store? After all i expect its a very quick and easy fix and doing so would ease if not entirely erase many of the problems players are having getting the alabaster set for their characters.
Overall its non-appearance in the store makes very little sense, especially given the vast benefits its appearance would have on both the community and devs quality of life.
