Question: Gallant Lightbearer

Does anyone know when this raptor skin is available? I really want to buy it but I'm not sure when it's available

    Nope, no one knows when it will come back. However, you can keep an eye on this thread - https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/458/news-gemstore-items-new-returned-sales - and watch for the announcement that it's back in the gem store.

    Apart from things tied to specific festivals, like the Halloween and Wintersday themed mounts, items in the gem store aren't on a predictable schedule. That's intentional, because it means players who want a specific item can't just ignore the gem store/game until it comes back, they have to keep checking, which means keep logging into the game and looking at the gem store.

    But apart from stuff which is discontinued because it's useless or the system has changed (like the old town clothes) everything comes back sooner or later.

    So your only option is to keep checking for gem store updates, but if you do that you will eventually be able to get it. (Just make sure you've got either 2,000 gems or cash to buy them because the gold to gem exchange rate is likely to jump up when it comes back.)

  • It may be some time before it is offered again, as it was available December 31, 2019 through January 7, 2020 last.
    Still, one never knows.

    I don’t normally advocate bothering support for trivial matters, but you could ask them if you added 2000 gems to your account, could they sell it?

    I think they’ve said no prior to people, but support altho very helpful, are also a bit inconsistent so it might be worth a try

    They did do it for me after I missed an item by a single day

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    They did something similar for me once. I missed a sale on bank tabs because of computer problems, and they had me purchase one at full price then refunded the difference.

    It was a nice surprise, they usually turn me down if it's something where we haven't been told to contact support if it happens. But maybe it's a really quick thing to do so the person answering thought it was worth the trouble.

  • It may be unlikely after a month+ has passed. Be prepared.
