Shiver Emote Tome Reward Track - locked and unavailable??

So I take pride in having achieved every single reward from every single WvW reward track. Every once in a while I check to make sure no new ones have snuck in ... and one did!

It is called "Shiver Emote Tome Reward Track" and it is locked (at least for me). You can only unlock it by buying "Shivering Ice" from a misleadingly/vaguely named vendor: "a recruited faction vendor in Eye of the North". So which one of the vendors is this? None of them have any vague similarity in their names or titles. We have:
1) Support Mark Vendor
2) Defense-Seal Vendor
3) Seal Discount Vendor
4) Karma Merchant
5) Vigil Emissary
6) Runic Armorsmith
7) Merchant (a tengu)

Is this time-gated / slipped through the cracks / not intended to be in the game, or is it a bug?

    It's not available yet. Till the next chapter 3 additional factions will join (Kodan/Skritt/Olmakhan), very likely one of the will sell the item (I guess it will be the Kodan).
    After it's added, you can normally buy it from the faction vendor (Support Mark Vendor) for 2 weeks and afterwards from the Seal Vendor.

    I hadn't noticed that track yet. Seems like a good one even if you already unlocked the shiver emote. It has 4 "raven's gift" containers on it that come with 2 mystic clovers each, and enough Kodan supply boxes to get to 10 without spending tokens on them.

    I don't think those work for the support achievement.
    The achievement specifically mentions purchase, which implies the need to buy them via tokens or defense marks.

    via the achievments is too thick, but im near completing it, now i need just remaining light puzzles.

    I'm not sure there are any 'light puzzles' in Champions. If there are, I've surely missed them.

    There are in Bjora Marches, the meta for which gives you the /shiver tome. They belatedly put that on a reward track tied to Champions.

    Yes, I know. Thought we were talking about the Champions Reward Track, but I can see how someone would refer to the (Shiver) Episode Meta, as well.

    It is something many players/posters asked for. Glad to see it.

    I'd rather have a Champions (/stretch) reward track than the shiver emote reward track actually. I guess that'll take another year or so going by how long it took them to get the /shiver emote on a WvW/PvP track.

    There should be an additional reward track for /stretch as well.
    Maybe we get that one with chapter 4.

    Let's hope so. Fingers crossed.

    ...and the /shiverplus emote can be unlocked in the Dizzlewood Coast episodes.

    Which has little to do with the topic of this thread, the new Reward Track.
