It is said, “Negotiation is the art of letting the other side have your way.” Some see diplomacy as a test of wills, some as an art form, and some as the inevitable progression of survival instinct. To the illustrious merchants of the Vaelune it is a way of life. Securing a binding deal requires more finesse than felling a beast for its hoarded treasure, or seizing an indestructible fortress. After all, the spoils of war are quickly spent, and there are always additional adversaries seeking fortune and fame, eager to replace the slain.
The Opulent Negotiations cosmetic add-ons will be available in the Ashes of Creation shop from June 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific until July 13, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Don’t forget that Windswept Wonders addons will be removed on June 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific when the new cosmetics swap over.

Would it be time for another revelation of mid-high, ingame achievable gear designs? Mb in the next dev update?
Based on the lanterns I would say at least medium, maybe even large.
We announce the new cosmetic packs (that replace the outgoing ones) at least 1 day in advance!
Hey Vaknar, I know you and the team are very much aware, but given how long this question has been awaiting an answer from the community - is there genuinely a design reason for why this cannot be announced yet - that has had this delayed an answer for a year or more?
It also holds some people back as they don't know if the Freehold skin will be applicable for how they would like to use it, as we just don't know enough.
It doesn't bother me so much on a personal level as I likely won't be able to purchase a pack, but knowing that of the few negatives that do get drawn, this is one of them and if Intrepid could just pick up the slack on this one and nip this in the bud, then it's one less grey area that can be talked about.
At the very least, I think that some sort of trade off would be a way to exchange a skin specifically for freehold if it's not one that you'll get use out of - just on a one off basis. This would be difficult to balance as well as I know you don't want people getting access to a different pack's cosmetics, but there likely isn't a perfect solution for this anyway.
