Aspect Back Items: Players can compete in the Sanctum Sprint for a chance to earn one of three special back items representing the aspects of wind, sun and lightning.
Personal Quartz Node: Once players complete the meta achievement for this release, their home instance will have a daily resource node, allowing the harvesting of quartz – a new material being introduced in this release for crafting new recipes.
Zephyr Sanctum Model: Players who complete the Lessons from the Sky achievement will be awarded a miniature model of the Zephyr Sanctum, allowing them to view the ship at any time, even after it has flown away.
How hard is it going to be to get the aspect back items, if we're going to be competing against other players? (I'm hoping its not going to be too hard)
Also, is the node we get in our home instance permanent, or just for the duration of the event?

Account Achievement Reward System: Starting with this release, players can unlock rewards like exclusive new armor skins, weapon skins and permanent account bonuses as they earn achievement points. They can also earn laurels, gems, gold, powerful items, and PvP and WvW rewards as achievement scores grow.
Can't wait to see the new skins. Hopefully it won't be one time ones, like the current event achievement items (like the back packs). I'm hoping we get to be able to use the skin on multiple characters at once, with a vendor like the HOM one (or like the festival hat/costume merchant from GW1) .
