The Hallowed Grave and Dancing Skeleton Pet

It’s about time to decorate your hideout for Halloween! The new Hallowed Grave contains everything you’d expect from a Halloween decoration – glowing carved pumpkins, withered grass and skeletons. Those of you who prefer a good laugh instead of screaming for Halloween might be interested in a new Dancing Skeleton Pet. Its look and funny animations make the Dancing Skeleton a perfect companion for your Exile. Find out more about these cosmetic effects in this news post or get yours in the store.
