New membership benefits are active in The Secret World for all Subscribers and Grandmasters!

The Grandmaster Pack is only available for purchase until February 09 2016 at midnight GMT. Past that time, no new Grandmaster purchases will be possible but all Grandmaster players will retain their status regardless. This includes the 20% Item Store Discount.

The membership status of a player can be seen in their nametag employing a new set of hexagonal yellow icons, while benefits themselves are visible from the top bar. Bonuses to experience and bullion are listed in the rewards section of a mission and its turn-in report.

Loyalty Rewards are special rewards acquired for subscribing to The Secret World for 30, 60, 90, 180, and 360 days. Grandmasters receive these bonuses immediately, but the counter for a subscriber began February 01 2016 or when they first subscribe. These rewards can be claimed in the Item Store.

For a full list of Loyalty Rewards, see the official Membership page! For any questions, check out the Membership FAQ!

Alongside the Membership changes comes the Valentine’s Day event!

From now until February 23 2016, unique items are available for purchase from the Item Store. Two new items, the Love Bird pet and Rose Rain consumable effect, are available exclusively through Gifting during this time, while a new Valentine’s Scooter can also be purchased or Gifted.

Previous years’ items also return to the store.

The Merchant of Eros has moved next to Mr. and Mrs. Knickknack in all Faction Hubs and continues to sell up to two Satchels of Amorous Delights per day to a character as well as new clothing for Lucky Coins! As with the rest of the event, this vendor will only be available until the 23rd of February.

Hey, folks!

I’m Odonoptera, and I’ll be your host for the November development update! This has been one of the busiest months for our developers in a long time, and we’re excited to be able to speak about the fruits of our labor.

Right off the top, we are excited to announce a Gifting option from within the Item Store. A new element will be added to the in-game store interface that will allow you to purchase an item for another player, and have it delivered directly to them. We’re working on making sure the initial rollout is available by the end of the year, so stay tuned!

Read the rest of the update on the official website.
