There were some lesser releases as well, and those are what's catching my attention. Today the Tropical Island Outfit saw the Grass Skirt release. (3rd part of the set.) It's free during the introductory period, so Monique and I have picked up the first three pieces. Guess there's still one piece to go. These costumes are a fun diversion from the usual run of armor and weapons. You can grab them from Solomon's General Store.
It's like when you buy a pack of hot dogs with 8 hot dogs, and a pack of hot dog buns with 10 buns. You're not going to come out even unless you buy multiples of both.
Today, part of the update included 25% off the Pegasus cost. Monique took a look, and figured out the actual costs. Because she had not spent her 200 Runecoins, she only needed to spend $5.00 for a Pegasus. In my case, it took $10.00 to buy one. Between the two of us, that equaled a $15.00 savings over the usual cost.
So Monique decided to get us both a Pegasus. She was going to surprise me in-game by asking me to teleport to Lunar Island. To decoy me away long enough, she sent me to the kitchen to cook lunch. Unfortunately, I got back too soon, and caught her in the act. Kind of spoiled her plans, but not her surprise. It was a very pleasant surprise to see that I now had a Pegasus.
We're very happy with the animation. For a while we played with synchronized take-offs. It looked so awesome, I had to upload a video to youtube. What's better than flying into the sunset on your own Pegasus? Flying into the sunset on your own Pegasus, with the love of your life beside you on her own Pegasus!
