The Flame and Frost game update for Guild Wars 2 has introduced two new items to the gem store: quaggan backpacks and riding brooms. The quaggan backpack is a plush skin for your back slot and comes complete with a goldfish zipper, dangling button eye, and rag doll physics. The riding broom is a cosmetic mount that has fun animations, but doesn’t confer any speed increase. The broom is great for anyone who didn’t have a chance to purchase the witch/warlock costume during the Halloween event, but if you already have that, this broom is redundant.
Evon Gnashblade’s Box o’ Fun has been updated and improved with new effects and a rotating preview icon indicating what type of novelty is about to pop out to anyone who clicks on it. Some of the effects this toy can produce are fireworks, character color changes, random creature transformations, making your character huge, and turning you to stone.
The quaggan backpack costs 300 gems and the riding broom will set you back 250. The Box o’ Fun has been discounted to 80 gems each or 5 for 320. What do you think of the latest additions to the gem store? Let us know if you’ve purchased any of these items in the comments below.
