Undaunted Outfit Styles
This week on the PTS, we are running a limited test of some new, dungeon boss-themed Outfit Styles.  Every few days, the Outfit Styles for a different dungeon’s Mask and Shoulders will drop in game, and a dungeon-inspired pack of weapon Outfit Styles will be featured in the Crown Store. 

Completing the featured dungeon has a chance to drop the Mask Outfit Style associated with that dungeon, while the Undaunted reward chest associated with the featured dungeon has a chance to drop the Shoulder Outfit Style for that dungeon. If you’ve completed the hard mode achievement for that dungeon, you are more likely to find Mask and Shoulder Outfit Styles.

Please note that this is a compressed schedule for testing purposes, and does not represent the timing in the future.
  • Monday through Wednesday (10:00AM ET)

    • Completing White-Gold Tower has a chance to award the Molag Kena’s Mask Outfit Style page
    • Urgarlag Chief-Bane’s chest has a chance to award the Molag Kena’s Shoulder Outfit Style page
