Those logging in to the game today and going to the Trading Post or gem store are going to find some new items worthy of attention: two new dye packs and an unlimited-use mining pick!

When you use the new mining pick, molten environmental effects come out of the node. These effects are visible to all players.

When you use the new mining pick, molten environmental effects come out of the node. These effects are visible to all players in the game world.

The mining pick, priced at 800 gems, has an unlimited number of uses and can mine any node in the game. It is account-bound on purchase but becomes soul-bound once you equip it on a character. There is currently no other gathering tools of this kind available on the store.

There are also two new dye kits — the Frost dye kit and Flame dye kit. Each kit includes one of 25 colors aligned with the kit name (frost colors, or flame colors), and each includes six dye colors not available anywhere else. The kits each go for 125 gems apiece or five for 500 gems.
