We have discussed whether or not we will make the limited edition Special Series Reward available in the C-Store later for people who missed out on playing the series while it was live, but we want to see how many people are able to claim the reward first and how many people missed out on it. This is primarily in anticipation of down the road when people will be continually asking, “how do you get that cool thing you’ve got!”
For the love of god Cryptic, DO NOT DO IT! When you take a special item like this that has to be earned, putting it in the C-Store diminishes the item and is a disservice to thsoe of us that did it the hard way. To put them in the C-Store means they are no longer Special Series Rwards, they are just C-Store product and means that future series reward are diminished in turn before they release because we know they will be buyable as well.
Sometimes it is okay to make a player EARN something in game and give them no other way to have it. Please do not dimish the great thing you have going now by making part of it buyable.
