    I have been wondering for a long time, why there are no "rare" epaulettes given out as event rewards. Since the EM's have used pretty much every graphic in the game for event items at this point, why are there no epaulettes? They are a very cool graphic and have existed for months, the possibility for cool names and colors that have never been used before is practically endless. "Epaulettes Signifying The Wearer As An Officer Of King Blackthorn's Army" dyed red/black, the colors of chaos for example. Since they take the place of a robe, they could be proudly worn with pretty much any rare suit of armor.

    What do you all think?

    From what I've seen over time is that some type of graphics don't seem to come into play for event drops. Either they are not used anymore or they take away from making money with a graphic, like some of the items in the Origin store. But then again, there are graphics not seen in game that seem to pop up as an event item so I guess it all boils down to what the EM and Mesanna agree upon.

    What about a scroll type drop that lets you engrave the "reward text" to any wearable?

    There's SO many graphics they've never used; I doubt there's anything specifically saying not to use the epaulettes graphic.
