With last night's update, we noticed a few new items in the database:It's not yet known whether they'll be purchasable through the Gem Store or be offered via other means such as mystic chests or the mystic forge. What do you think?

Speculate away!

Wasn't it announced that the first 3 were hidden in black lion chests? Or was this a rumour?

Self-Style Hair Kit and Permanent Black Lion Merchant Contract looks rather nice.

Bigger question is, what will they cost? How are they obtained?

Whats the difference between a Black Lion Contract and a Trading Post Pickup? What can you not do in the trading post from anywhere except pickup goods and money?

I'm not real sure how I feel about how they decided to approach makeovers. I guess I'll wait and see what the prices look like before I get pissed. Right now it's looking like it's going to be a bit frustrating for people that only want to change something like the color of the hair accessories. Want to keep that hairstyle and change just the accessory color? Buy the more pricey non-random option. It's just a hair accessory! Maybe they will surprise me and give us that option for free in the hero panel... I don't feel too confident about it.

I wonder if the random hairstyle options will be the only way to get certain hairstyles since Maplestory used a similar system. ;)

I love it, can't wait.. I really hope i can change my char from female to male and also I love the name change since i created my character fast and made up a stupid name. A+

It'd be even cooler if some of these dropped during the Halloween event hint hint!

I hope these are gem store items and not mystic chest items. RNG is not my thing, but i would totally buy these!

I can see the random tonics being mystic chest items though.

It looks like it says BL merchant, so maybe a permanent merch that sells salvage kits, gathering tools, etc? That'd be nice idk how many times ive gone to pick that ori node and find out i cant get it b/c pick ran out :P

Woot! When I first made my character at launch I accidentally made her the tallest height (it was the default setting) in the rush to get the name I wanted. I no longer have to be an Amazon!! As my friends call me. :(
