Oh man, here we are again – another year, another PWI Anniversary!
Yes, it feels like only yesterday when we opened up Heavens Tear and Lost City servers and had the very first GM Meet and Greet event starring Ironman and Xarfox. Much has changed in all this time – we've gotten Genies and two new races, four new classes, countless new skills, new instances, several website redesigns, and an exponential growth curve of player popularity. Suffice it to say, PWI has never been more popular than it is right now, and much more is on the way!
To celebrate this year's anniversary, we're going big, with plenty of events, prizes, and general mayhem.
Let's start off with our…
PWI Anniversary Giveaway!
From Friday September 2nd until Sunday September 4th, every player who logs in to PWI will be entered into a raffle to win prize packs (valued at $250) including the limited-edition Barbarian Tiger Statue and an extra-fancy Logitech Gaming Keyboard, and a 10 dollar game card or 1,000 ZEN! Two winners will be selected, so be sure to log in during that time period!

New Features for this Anniversary
So far we've announced the prizes and the events.. so what else is there? How about some new content?
Think your ring needs some extra stats? Head on over to any Jewelcraftsman – there you'll be able to trade certain materials for a random stat to be applied to your ring. These materials include stones, Spectral Polish, and Uncanny Ores. Engraving higher-level rings requires higher-level mats.
New Phoenix Nest Wedding Chapel
And just one more way to say those three little words.. "I need contribution". The Phoenix Nest is a new, classically Chinese wedding instance meant to rival the current PWI Chapel. Head on over here if you prefer a more Eastern theme. Also, please note – only players who have never gotten married in the PWI Chapel can actually use the Phoenix Nest.
And finally, allow to to just say thank you for continuing to play and spread the word about PWI. For our game, word of mouth is absolutely crucial to its success, so it makes us really happy that our players like it so much that they continue to speak well of it and bring their friends to share their experience. We will continue supporting the game whole-heartedly with great new features, bug fixes, and events, and we hope you'll come along with us for the rollercoaster ride that is PWI.
Thanks for playing, and we'll see you in-game!
