Blade & Soul's Winter Event
With today's patch (12/20) came a festive holiday outfit that can be purchased with in-game currency or through the cash shop. Players can also purchase new limited holiday payment packages (game time) and receive special gifts for doing so, including the the best life leach gem around and outfits! As if that isn't enough already, players who visit an internet cafe will receive in-game goodies depending on how long they played. Scroll down for more details.

New Festive Outfits!
A new festive holiday outfit can be purchased for 1,000 in-game gold or $10 through the game's cash shop. Like most sets in Blade & Soul the outfit has a different appearance for each race and gender and can not be traded. The purchased outfit does not come with the Santa's Hat or Reindeer Antlers, these can obtained through a series of quests. The Red Nose head accessory can be obtained through the Internet Cafe Event, details can be found below.

Everyone knows how a socket can significantly chance the value of a weapon. Team Bloodlust will seen be adding a coupon that will grant an extra gem socket on any weapon through an upcoming Internet Cafe event in Korea! The event will take place on January 16th at any Internet Cafe. More details to come.

Mushin’s Glaring Amethyst (Double Stat: 200 Life Leech when crit, Attack Power +3), Can not be obtained ingame

Hong Moon School’s Glaring Amethyst (200 life leech when crit), 825 Gold in Broker (Went up from 700 in the past month because of new Dungeons coming out)

Hong Moon School’s Glaring Diamond (Attack Power +35), 420 Gold

As a guideline on how much Gold that is. You can currently buy the christmas outfits for around 12 Euro in the Cash Shop, those sell for 300 Gold to the vendor.

What Ghastly said.
Attributes on item shop sales is dangerous. The Black Tiger outfit on female Gon looks amazing.
Totally reconsidering my main race now. Just for that outfit.

Sad.... I hope this does NOT come to NA
Buying power is never good.

Also, I thought this is an "event".
Are we getting presents or are we giving presents to them?

Well I pray to an almighty higher being that this won't happen in NA. No stat items in the cash shop. If I'm playing P2P, I better not see this kind of stuff. The only things i expect are, server switch, name change, appearance change, race change, and anything along those lines. Maybe some potions to some extent, as long they don't give bonus stats.

All items and outfits have to be accessible in game if its a P2P.
If i want to see this stuff, I can just go play some F2P or B2P.

They're testing the players. if people aren't outraged they'll keep doing it. Nexon most likely asked NCsoft to test this. What they don't understand is that they might be able to get away with this in Korea but not in the US/EU.

Another reason for this 6Months sub with extra benefits is the fact that ArchAge is upcoming and NCsoft wants to bind people to their game of course. Apperently a lot of Korean threatened NCsoft with leaving BnS because of lacking content when ArchAge hits (I think it goes into open Beta these days)

What makes you think Nexon has anything to do with this? Seriously, it seems as if any time something you guys don't like goes into the cash shop it's like "NEXON DID IT NEXON'S THE DEVIL NEXON IS GONNA POISON BNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Like really, yes Nexon has much to be desired but c'mon. They'd need more than Nexon going "Hey do a thing!" to consider doing something other than what they planned on doing already.

EDIT: Also, in the games that are actually good, Nexon doesn't put stat stuff into the cash shop. They're also from different development subsidiaries.
