A few people have gotten the Desmina outfit free from gw2 stating that they’re a valuable player in the community. Is this a random giveaway? I’m not trying to start rumors or anything at all, I’m just curious because I didn’t get one and not many others.

    It looks like someone gifted that outfit to your friend(s) and not ANet, if they actually did for some really weird reason but it would be a ANet tag upper corner.
    I honestly doubt they would, even if they're ''valuable player in the community'', lol :lol:
    It simply could be from anyone who gifted the outfit cuz of that auto-message from Black Lion TP.

    Guys, I know absolutely nothing about a random outfit giveaway to anyone -- good customer or not! :)

    I feel sure that, as others have pointed out, this was a gift from one player to another. There's no precedence that a Black Lion Trading Company mail would be used to send a freebie to a sub-group of players. (Other gifts come through a different sender, as I recall.)

    Also, the gift sender can write any message they want in the mail that delivers the gifted item. That is what I believe happened here.

    I can check tomorrow, but I feel that I can set this one to rest. :)

    nope, they sent a pic too.

    in game mail with the bl logo... i havent ever gotten a gift so maybe it could be something anonymous, but im assuming its from them yes

    Nope, that pic you linked is the exact same appearance as when someone gifts something to you. I know this from experience.

    If Gaile doesn't know anything about a giveaway then it's not an Anet giveaway.

    Seeing this topic is made, I would like to ask... can we get a version without heels? Everything else about it is perfect (minus headgear, but I can hide that).

    That's really a low blow... didn't know, if it's really true, that devs managed to give unique aesthetic items to some players in a game which is about skins and fashion.
    Yuk.

    I think your friends are pulling your leg. Anet hasn't given out free gemstore items like this since Season 1 ended if I remember correctly. I remember during Bazaar of Four Winds I got one of those kites before they were put into gem store for making a bunch of gem store purchases that month/quarter.

    I'd make other changes myself. Another one I'm not interested in. Glad to see there are those that like it, though.

    In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

    It kind of have a Punkish winter-looking outfit to me if I just look at it without the headgear and from the front where I can't see the heels.
    Just want either a version without heels.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    More likely one player gifting the outfit to another. It still comes from the gem store/Anet.

    That actually doesn’t rule out a gift with attached message from a player. The Royal Guard outfit that was gifted to players had ANet’s name on it.

    Seriously it would be nice if you celebrated the people that pay for your over head through hundreds of dollars worth of gem purchases as opposed to your YouTube partners that live off of and pay for gems through donations through Patron (if you look at it that way they're really spending some one else's money).

    Just saying.

    Pretty sure I've spent at least $200 on Gems in the past month, guess that's not enough to be 'valued'.

    Oh that's awful. I suppose your best bet is to contact them about the outfit? Hope they can get you a replacement! Should be an easy enough matter to see that you're account is x days old, and you don't have the outfit in your wardrobe.
