They also didn’t forget about their founders. All unique cosmetic items featured in the upcoming Gold Edition will be provided at no cost to anyone who purchases and claims a Founder’s Pack in-game before December 4th, irrespective of the tier chosen. Furthermore, Founders will also receive a gift of 2500 Moonstones to celebrate this milestone.
