New PTS Items = New Hair Styles/Skin Colors?

new cosmetic rift store items

In a recent update to the Public Test Shard (PTS), there are a whole lot of new goodies to explore. Most of these updates and items will be added during RIFT 2.4, which is due out sometime this month. Among the new goodies, there’s a new Chronicle to test based off Infernal Dawn, new PvP ranks (rank 90) and PvP gear, the RIFT Store Trophies section, a random Conquest queue, new seals that add +89 base stats, new synergy crystals, new crafting reagents, a hint of a squirrel mount (!!!), and more.

We’ll be covering most of this in greater detail later in the day, but for now, let’s take a look at one addition we didn’t mention above that should make quite a few players happy– the addition of three new RIFT Store cosmetic character unlocks: Extended Hair Style Set, Hair Color Set Bundle, and Skin Color Set Bundle.

The Cosmetic section is a new subsection in the Services category. All three are account-wide unlocks and unlock immediately upon placing the item in your inventory. The hair style unlock costs 720 Credits, the hair color unlock costs 2376 Credits, and the skin color unlock costs 1800 Credits.

While the new hair styles aren’t listed on the tooltip or currently available on the PTS Stylists (the NPCs are currently disabled, in fact), the tooltip for the hair color unlock lists the following color categories: Natural Tones, Intense Light Tones, Light Tones, Intense Midtones, Midtones, and Dark Tones. The tooltip for the skin color unlocks lists these: Blue Tones, Dark Tones, Light Tones, Pink Tones, and Purple Tones.

Trion’s been hoping to add new hair styles for a while now, and it seems we’re finally going to be getting some.
