No, really–there’s something in the air. Unknown agents have been discovered to have contaminated clear sectors, causing unstable reactions known only as ‘emotions’. Of the amorous kind.
Our top officials are investigating this phenomenon; beware of an overload of symptoms, including:
• Corsages and jewelry
• Valentine’s bears
• St. Valentine’s scooter
• Satchel of Amorous Delights
• Bag of Saint Valentinus
Valentine’s Day has once more hit the Secret World by surprise. The plague of love is spreading. From 14 February 2017 to the end of the month, you can taste some toxic love as the disease begins its infestation and infiltrates the hearts of all.
During this time, a number of exclusive items are available from the Item Store.
Included in the sales are wedding and engagement rings, corsages, event bags, and stuffed bears to give your beloved.
New this year is the Heart Pajamas, white set, which gives a player both a hooded and non-hooded version of white pajamas with red hearts all over them.
You can also claim up to 5 free Heart pendant, silver from the Item Store per account, which can then be traded to another player at your whim. These pendants were added before the Gifting functionality and are thus found in the normal portion of the Item Store.
There are two items only available through Gifting during this event. The Love Bird pet is once more available to give, and there is now a set of black heart pajamas to dole out. They are not visible in the Item Store outside of the Gift interface.
The Merchant of Eros is also back in all Faction Hubs. Situated by the Lucky Coin vendors of a Faction Hub, the Merchant of Eros sells up to two Satchels of Amorous Delight per day to a player for either Pax Romana or Black Bullion. In addition, he offers unique recolors of items found in the Satchel for Lucky Coins.

The Winter Holidays are here! Krampus has returned once more, bringing with him the Winter Holiday events of prior years!
Krampus has brought a new Item Store Event Bag, St. Nick’s Rucksack and the Festive Grab Bag, which is full of goodies for festive cheer! St. Nick’s Rucksack and its contents are being added to the site throughout the event!

A new limited-time event and retro clothing bag has arrived alongside patch 1.15.8!
Check out a sneak peek of what is coming next week!https://t.co/XlUsgWK8nl
— The Secret World (@TheSecretWorld) August 19, 2016
Announced in a special sneak-peak in lieu of a Livestream, the Retro Bag hits the Item Store 24 August 2016 in addition to a special event.
From 24 August 2016 to 21 September 2016, players have the chance to complete 70 challenges as part of a Limited-Time Challenge for a special hellish hoverboard – the DOOMBOARD!
This special challenge can only be completed during that time frame, and must be done on a single character. Challenge completions on multiple characters do not count toward the total 70, so be sure to keep track of a single character’s challenges!
A minimum of 3 challenges per day is required to get the doomboard at the end of the 28 days.
The DOOMBOARD will rain DOOM upon you for all eternity as an account-wide unlock! Once 70 challenges have been reached on a single character, the Dooomboard will be rewarded to all current and future characters on an account.
You can also now alter your sprint speed in the sprint UI, perfect for playing with newer characters or completing those pesky jumps in Cost of Magic.
The Retro Bag collection is coming soon to TSWDB! Check back often for new additions!
