Earn Soul Badges, enjoy a Super Daily Dash, and get costumes in Today’s Specials!

Soul Badge Blitz

Soul Badge Blitz is here form June 14 through July 26. If there’s a Soul Badge you’ve wanted to try, or had your eye on, now’s the time to get it!

While Soul Badge Blitz is going on, you’ll be able to earn Fleeting Soul Badge Chests from Daily and Weekly Dungeon/Raid quests (list below). Opening a Fleeting chest will yield a random Fleeting Soul Badge, which will only last for one hour. Once the time is over, the item effect will be lost, and you’ll be able to sell these badges as an antique. Also granted from the Fleeting Soul Badge Chest is a Lunar Pearl, and if you’re really lucky you can obtain a Permanent Soul Badge Chest (which of course contains a permanent Soul Badge)!
