  • A Paxist Treasure – Pax Ammaria – Collector’s Item.

The offer expires June 4. Head to the official site to choose your gift.

EGM’s TAKE: To be still going strong after nine years is an impressive accomplishment. However, these gifts seem a little weak considering the celebration. More collectible items might have been nice, however these are just free gifts that everybody gets. We’re sure the actual celebration will offer more in-game.
