A weekly round-up of the more noteworthy DevPosts on the Official Forums. This week’s roundup features a new contest with a grand cash prize, the removal of the seasonal Dullahan cosmetic, a preview of the upcoming Plague Star event, and console news for the launch of Plains of Eidolon.
All information from this post is sourced from the official DevPost Tracker on the forums (and occasionally the dev team’s twitter accounts). TCN Glyph Promo Codes available at the bottom of this post.

A belated response to a thread which support suggested a player should make: The Focus respec was offered with Focus 2.0, but refunding is not meant to be a regular aspect of the system. Another one-time respec will be coming once Focus is reworked in the not-so-distant (or very distant) future.
