The overhaul to Solomon's General Store is here, with the rewards from the Members Loyalty Programme being successfully re-homed among its already bountiful stock. Now you're able to spend your loyalty points on a wide range of items, some of which have received a major graphical upgrade and look better than ever – including the loyalty items you have already purchased.
Loyalty shop outfits are now cosmetic overrides and can be equipped through the wardrobe interface. Because of this change, players whose loyalty items were stored in dragon keepsake boxes will be refunded the keepsake key upon launch of the update.
You can also access your Members' Loyalty Programme information straight from Solomon's General Store. With just one click, you can view your loyalty points and details on how long you've been a member in one convenient location.

The Members' Loyalty Programme has also been reworked in terms of how you earn loyalty points:
  • Anyone who is a member for a year receives an exclusive milestone reward, with further items for continuous years of membership. Note that this only counts back since the Loyalty Programme first went live, so no-one will get more than the first two items today.
  • Any milestone items for which you're eligible will be sent to your bank. If you don't have enough bank space, you'll be able to claim them from Diango in Draynor Village marketplace.
  • Players who subscribe for several months in a row receive bonus loyalty points.
Xuan is still around and you can now access the Solomon's General Store via his market stall. He'll still help you to retrieve lost auras and re-colour items.
This change marks a new and improved era for the Members' Loyalty Programme, with much more content planned for the future. We'd like to thank you for your patience while we were working on polishing this exciting update. We know that many of you were disappointed by the delay, so please accept our apologies. We hope that you enjoy using the newly merged store.

Whoops, I was under the impression that the bonus we were getting for the 1-year and 2-year milestones were going to be points, not items. Shouldn't have blown them all :(

On the plus side, combat timers at last!

Xuan in game now has a button that links directly to SGS without the need to logout, also, his shop now only has recolors and Auras.

Edit: SGS doesn't seem to have been updated so far. In fact I can't see anything that has changed.

The update isn't here yet for a lot of people, apparently. They either get whitescreen, or nothing changes, particularly if they access it from the site, as well. Odd.

Mmm no sign of new store for me atm.

Also I like how the super hyped 'milestone' rewards are hideous near identical bronze tiara/crown things...because useless items that look fugly and have no use is just what we all want especially crown cause it's not like we don't have several other better looking choices.

Fugly bronze crowns with a barely visible I or II on the front.

AHHAHAHHAHAHAH

I would rather take the 2 years membership money and buy a P-Hat.

(not that I would do that. Its not worth the pixels. But in comparison)

I only have the 1 year crown, but it's actually not bad looking. I don't know why you hate it so much. It's a bit small, you have to zoom in to view it. It could be bigger, but that's about it.

Cause its plain and boring and we have easier to obtain better looking crowns. Not to mention how much they hyped milestone rewards as some big reward for ur loyalty and its a frigging crown. No emote, no xp, no functional use heck it's even an ITEM instead of an override as part of an update tht specifically made items into overrides in recognition of the fact we prefer them. Then of course the fact the that two year milestone reward is virtually identical to the 1 year reward so it doesn't even offer any sort of distinguishing feature that you are more loyal.

Funny how even after a week's delay they fail to properly roll out the new store.

You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

It's rolled out fine, they just can't reload the game and external servers at the same time so soloman's server is now being reloaded to update that end of things.

As confirmed by jmods in-game.

In a year we will get the crown of spins. If you've bought 100+ spins you can have the crown. It gives you 1 spin a day more and gives you an emote that turns you into a giant spinning wheel. Not only that its an animated crown that constantly spins on your head.

So the loyalty store and SGS are disabled for days at a time..and they couldn't update it then? That's poor planning and design.

SGS has been open for the entire time, and all they disabled for the loyalty store was the ability to spend your points.
