    Quest currency rewards changes: Fragments of Darkness added, Fragments of Madness removed

    Shouldn’t it be Fragments of Horror?

      Thanks for the correction Zephane. So many Fragments starting to confuse me.

    I tried to google it, but had fail, what is the “The Skin Shop”?

    • November 4, 2015 at 9:09 pm #

      The Skin Shop is a guild on Greybriar (NA) that is filled with rare/event/hard-to-get skins. Normally you’d pay for 1-time or life-time access to the bank (just to collect wardrobe then return the item to the bank). You can learn more about it and see full list of skins here. There’s also one for EU called Skins on Farm.
