In addition to the items made by Norrath’s amazing and friendly crafters (available through trades and the in-game broker), you can purchase an assortment of services, items and features with Station Cash from the EQII in-game Marketplace, to enhance your gameplay experience. Appearance armor, mounts, prestige homes, and server transfer tokens are just some of the items available. New items are added to the Marketplace weekly!

The Goblin Games Ticket (New)

Purchase your tickets to play a new mini-game feature for a variety of prizes! When you use your Goblin Games ticket, a mysterious Gigglegibber will appear and offer you a choice of one of three mini-games: Goblin Grub, Decoration Duplication, or Statue Streak. Pick your game and play for a chance at one of many great prizes, including a new currency – Gigglegibber Gold – that can be used to purchase some items in the Marketplace as well! If you don’t succeed in your mini-game quest the first time around, fear not! The ticket will remain in your inventory until you win a prize.

Here is one of the exclusive prizes, the Pridewing Lion (New), available only in the Goblin Games prize crates:

Gigglegibber Gear Gimlet(New)

The Gigglegibber Gear Gimlet presents an opportunity previously unseen in Norrath! With this item, you can unattune one previously attuned item. The item must be unequipped for the Gigglegibber Gear Gimlet to work. These items are one of the random loot prizes from the new Goblin Games or are available for purchase using Gigglegibber Gold only.

Felwithe Mansion(Featured)

Watch the video here!

The comforts of a luxurious indoors are combined with the opulence of natural outdoors in this week’s featured prestige home, the Felwithe Mansion. From the grand foyer to the impressive staircases, the architecture is a true sign of prestige. The presence of waterfalls, trees, and other natural elements throughout the mansion keep those who live here “down to earth.”

Note: The Felwithe Mansion can be purchased at a reduced price this week. Look for it in the Marketplace *Sale* category!

Oh man.. I think that's one of the coolest mounts in game! It's a shame it's probably almost impossible to get without spending a whole lot of SC. :-/

you guys need to give everyone the 1 free ticket a day just like you do in DCUO its only fair that a person should be able to get a chance to win goblin tokens without buying them from the cash shop......so I think it should be the same way

I agree that giving subscribers access to these tickets would be a really cool feature.

I don't even think it really needs to be 1 a day, even once a week and I'd be happy.

Of course, since subscribing gives 500 SC a month it could be argued that we already have that abiilty.  Unfortunately, as a station access subscriber I don't get the 500 SC or I'd probably use it on this.

I have a question about this.

This just unattunes an item so you can give to another character of yours, but does not unattune the adornments, right?

Is it just me or are the models looking more and more WoW-ish (cartoonish, that is)? First the wolves now the lions. Why is the art going downhill?

Indeed! We'll be posting more news about this soon, but there are free goblin games tickets (amount depends on your membership level) in your "/claim" window!

Where do you spend the Goblin Gold? Do you have to bring up another Game?

There is a category in the Marketplace called "Play for Prizes." You can buy additional Goblin Games tickets there, and also purchase items available for Goblin Gold.

I'm not downing the idea of the goblin mini-games, as I think it an interesting idea. But the games themselves? Very disappointing. A click-fest and two SIMPLE memory games is not my idea of fun.

I was expecting something even mildly entertaining... a quick (2 or 3 minute) adventure where you have to figure out a puzzle of who-done-it or something... something along the lines of "The Haunting" or "There Will Be Ghosts" (altho not with the same solution every time.) The games you currently have are suited for a child in kindergarten at most.

I really hope you plan on QUICKLY pushing out more entertaining and challenging games than these or please just let us spend 100 SC to buy the Mysterious Crate. It would save us the 20 seconds it takes to complete these ridiculously simple "games".

I rarely post and really hate to sound so negative, but I was anticipating something more fun than this.

Is the lion in the crate? I can't actually find him in the listed prizes.

 This isn't true. Unattuners are available in LoN, and have been for well over a year now.

http://legendsofnorrath.station.son...e/unattuner.jpgThey were released as a part of the Dragonbrood series, Back in 2010.

He is only available in the crate; he's not available for Goblin Gold or Station Cash, so he won't show up on the list in the Marketplace.

Should he show up on the list of what could be in the crate because he currently doesn't.

Edit: Adding pic so you can see.

Probably overlooked it as its not named Pridewing Lion (as stated in the article) but it is there (at least on ticket):

Majestic Pridewing (right below Magical Storm whistle) and it also shows down in the icon/image area, far left side a few rows down.

My stupidity. I was looking for pridewing first

I'm wondering about the lion mount as well.  The Ticket shows it as a possible reward, however, the actual crate you get DOES NOT.  "A Mysterious Crate" has everything but the magistic pridewing listed on it.

Does it drop in place of the crate or is this bugged?

I tried the Gigglegibber Gear Gimlet (unattuner) on an old attuned and adorned item.  It unattuned the item but left the adornment in the item.  The adornment was not destroyed.

I'm glad the adornment remains in tact albeit still attached to the item, I would have really loved to get my Mana Sprinkles adornment back out of the very outdated sword that it's in since my chances of ever getting another from a PQ raid are nil.

Mystery solved.

Maybe I'm alone on this but I got a feeling that unless these tickets become random drops these minigames will quickly become forgotten once the newness wears off. That and just as an observation some of the items cost less in straight cash then what you would spend to get the goblin coins.

you get between 1 and 3 tickets free a month depending on your subscription and 500 sc if you have a gold reoccurring subscription - so for gold you get 8 free runs at it a month. Used the 8 tickets last night, got four 7 day research reduction potions, two sets of wings and took the coins on two instances becasue I did not like the choices. Will continue to play the 8 free a month in hopes of getting the lion mount

It isn't listed on the prizes but it is supposed to be a "surprised" prize (I've not won one, going from what people have said in chat).

Given the number of people who find the Haunted House dance game exceedingly difficult these games should provide a challenge.

I find them entertaining. The Gigglegibber clan never fails to surprise and/or please. The chest loot is random and very nice.

The Pridewing has been seen.  He's confirmed from the crates.

What happened to the Majestic Pridewing? Was it ninja removed without saying? Your right, it's not on the crate loot list anymore. My hubby bought a ton of tickets last night specifically trying to get one. He's going to be the most irate customer ever...

*Is it in a different loot crate?

Yah, I did some where around 200 goblin games and no lion.. so I don't know if it's just my usual bad luck or if i'm getting scammed. :   It is really unsettling to see Majestic Pridewing on the ticket list but not the crate list when examined. 

After the missing 5th dragon plushy I'm thinking it's a distinct possability that it's not on the loot table any more.

Can SOE just drop the whole gambling thing already?

Oh yah, and has any other server's Goblin Gambling game gone for a rediculously long time with out being won? Crushbone's lottery is up over 800 plat.... seems kinda fishy.
