  • There is a chance to get a piece of it with every opening of a Cache
  • The new extraordinary items will come with a new proc
  • The outfit will no longer have a rising chance of being dropped, the weapons will get that instead now
  • It is not planed to bring back older Caches (but they might at some point decide to revisit that decision)
