Final Weekend: Obsidian Samurai Set

Available every year from February 1st - 28th

Sunday is the last full day to get this month's seasonal set, featuring a deadly warrior straight out of Empress Miko's royal Yokai Court: the Obsidian Samurai.

February Set: Obsidian Samurai

Unlock the Obsidian Samurai armor and all its accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 5,400 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Obsidian Samurai pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 3,400 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Obsidian Samurai armor
  • Samurai's Shadow Cape (glow is color-customizable)
  • Obsidian Samurai Banners cape
  • Obsidian Samurai's Helm and Masked Helm
  • 4 Obsidian Samurai hair helms
  • 5 weapons (including dual-wield katanas, nodachi, and naginata)
  • an exclusive character page badge

Seasonal Set Details

Each month, we'll feature a new set, available only during that month every year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages; new bonus gear comes out roughly every month. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY February, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance in upcoming years.

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through February 29th.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.
