Q:

So why do new characters still get Scarlet’s Gift?
I can only imagine new players getting these on their first character, going “oooh nice a gift, what does it- BAM!”

Proper welcome.

Edit: so players without achivements in the QJ and/or CC achievement sections don’t get them, so new players either. I and others still don’t need them on alts.

Makes you hate her when you get in the game for the first time!

I bet it is super confusing for new people. As it is not obvious what just happened and why.

So it’s a proper welcome to the Living Story.

How will they know they should hate her without that experience?

I think it’s a very proper introduction to the story line.

We go out in the world and take our chances
Fate is just the weight of circumstances

Hmm that’s odd! When did you buy the game and when did you create a character the last time?

I get one on every new character I create, as well as occasionally from a random drop. That darn Scarlet! Lol.

I don’t think it’s a bug, though. =)

Turns out from player reports, that only players get it who have done a given number of achievements of the Scarlet LS. Still I don’t see the point to have them sent to new characters at all!
