Changes in Prizes

Several changes have been made to prize offerings over the course of the Return to Black Swan Castle Quest. The quest was originally graded in tiers up to six, with prizes according to level. This was later modified to only two tiers: a "success" or "not success." The first prize list released included masterfully crit padded armor, but this was downgraded to heavily crit padded before the quest went live. Several highly valued prizes, including the padded armor, were removed when the grading changed two tiers in June 2013.
