Those who didn’t experience Season 5 will be glad to know that several cosmetics will return, which includes pants and boots slots of the Conqueror Set, Greyhollow Island portrait frames, and the Wickerman pet.

As for the new, if you manage to complete all nine chapters from the Season Journey, you’ll earn yourself the Galactic Wings. Nice.

Likewise, there’s once again another seasonal conquest rotation. As of May 17th the following seasonal conquests will go live: Sprinter, Speed Racer, Avarice, Avaritia, The Thrill, Superhuman, Years of War, Dynasty, Masters of the Universe, and Masters of Sets.
