    People will hang on to Mesanna, Blackthorn, Minax and such. So those will probably bring a premium till people get tired of them.

    from what ive seen with all my accounts and from what im hearing from guild mates the drop rate of getting a towel with your name on it is about 2-3% but of course the RNG has the final say on that.
    i had one account that didnt even get 1 across all the shards and then my other account got like 8.

    haha, we are using the same brain cause i was thinking the very same thing and went to try it, no go.
    i was thinking that these might actually be a useful gift for a second.

    The short answer is no. Unless you are thrilled at the chance that your characters name is on a towel.

    yes and no there was someone saying they got a sword from themselves (instead of an mod or em) to themselves , I don't think it had been confirmed or if it was just a bug on test

    you can still get a newbie dagger btw - it's called "Someone's Dagger" and it drops semi-regularly off the crystal sea serpents in the prism of light dungeon and it's blessed

    No clue on that G.v.P I already got all my rewards now. I figure the longer you delay the more likely you are to miss out. But then I had to redo the UI on all my characters anyway so I needed to log them all in and out anyway.
