Deep Freeze!

Greetings knights!

The cold of winter is descending on Cradle. To keep knights moving during the most extreme cold conditions, Spiral HQ has issued chilling new gear. Blend into any frozen environment with frosty gear and accessories.

While these items look frozen solid on the outside--for camo reasons, and also because it looks formidable--they're mighty toasty on the inside. Think of them as Cradle's most efficient travel coffee mug. Take care with the new permafrost aura as it may leave a puddle in warmer places.

Contents include:

* Permafrost Aura (new)

* Crystalline Defender (new, shield)

* Maskeraith (Freeze) Pod

* Arctic Acolyte Mantle (new)

* Arctic Acolyte Hood (new)

* Arctic Disciple Wings

* Arctic Crown

* Arctic Shackles

* Arctic Pauldrons

* Additional new armors and helms

* New accessories

Glacial prize boxes are available from now through February 17th, 2020.
