— In-game description
A Birthday Present is a type of present that is awarded to each character every 12 months (from 12 to 84 months), counting from the day of creation. It appears in inventory the first time that character enters the game after reaching the milestone. A Birthday Present acquired from a Xunlai Gift-Giver is called a Birthday Surprise Box. The main difference between Presents and Surprise Boxes is Surprise Boxes cannot be traded or sold, they will not go into a trade window.
- Birthday Present: automatically every 12 months from 12 to 84 months.
- Birthday Surprise Box: from a Xunlai Gift-Giver in exchange for a Birthday Present Voucher.
When opened, the character will get a miniature or tonic randomly chosen from the table below, depending on the age of the present.
The seventh year present has a chance to drop Purple, Gold or Green miniatures from any of the first five years of presents (first row) and several previously exclusive minis from other sources (second row).
- If the character's inventory is full then the Birthday Present will appear the next time the character zones into a new outpost or district with at least one empty slot.
- Excluding their acquisition methods and descriptions, the only difference is that Birthday Surprise Boxes cannot be traded.
- To find out how often each item appears from a Birthday Present, visit the research subpage.
- Except for the color, these five prizes use the same inventory icon: Factions Collector's Edition Prize, Nightfall Collector's Edition Prize, Winter Gift, and Festival Prize.
- Originally, John Stumme stated only that "there are some [seventh year] minis that are not repeats from the presents of previous years - they're just rare." Stephane Lo Presti later confirmed the exact contents of the seventh year Birthday Presents.
- Birthday Present Voucher, awarded annually instead of a Birthday Present from 96 months onwards.
