What is a Campaign / Bonus Program / Rewards?
A Campaign / Bonus Program / Rewards is a time limited event that can be accessed in the Shop. It allows players to collect Bonus Points (BP) with gold they spend in the Shop (or by directly boosting it via the Boost button) and claim Bonus rewards.
You can collect BP by purchasing Mystery Boxes, Packages and Items in the Nexus and Cloth Bazaar areas with Realm Gold (Fame purchases do not count). During the duration of some Campaigns, you may be able to also collect points by collecting various items or completing quests.
Why release a Campaign?
A while ago, we released a new feature in order to run the Unity Support Campaign. The feature was a big investment for our team in terms of development and we designed it with possible future campaigns in mind from the start.
We are repurposing the feature to make it available again in the form of events during which you'll collect additional rewards for supporting the game via gold purchases or solving quests, depending on the type of bonus program.
How do I participate?
Whenever a Campaign starts, you will be able to access the feature directly in the Shop. In order to participate and to start collecting points, you will first have to "unlock" the campaign. Some campaigns are free to unlock, while some have a small gold cost.
The details above are subject to change with future campaigns.
Is the Campaign mandatory? Why should I participate?
None of the Campaigns / Bonus Programs will be mandatory, of course! It is totally up to you to unlock the campaign or not. The main idea of a bonus Program is to give extra rewards. However, you will not collect points as long as the Bonus Program is not unlocked and this will not be retroactive (i.e any points generated before unlocking the Bonus Program will not count).
Will any direct purchases from the Nexus/Character screen count towards the Campaign?
Some of them, yes. Right now, direct purchases from the Nexus (such as items, consumables, food) do count towards the bonus program. However, character slot unlocks, vault slot unlocks and name changes do not count towards the program.
Please make sure to review every Campaign announcement individually for specific details on which purchases count and how to progress, as this may change in the future.
What is a "Grace Period"?
The "Grace Period" of a Bonus Program is a limited time where the Bonus Program will still be visible at the Mystery Shop but you will no longer be able to progress in the tiers even if you keep donating (directly or via purchases in the shop). This grace period is there so everyone can claim the rewards from the tier they have unlocked while the Bonus Program was live (in a non-grace period).
Can I obtain the Unity Supporter Campaign Glow, Chat Color and Gravestone skins via the Bonus Campaign?
No, you can't. Those were exclusive to the Unity Supporter Campaign and limited to the users that helped us push through with the Unity port project.
