Cosmetic items allow players to alter their Eternal experience without affecting gameplay. Things like totems, cardbacks, and avatars may be customized. Cosmetic items can be purchased in the Store, unlocked through faction progression rewards, or rewarded for participation in Events.

Some cosmetic items are not obtainable by everyone, for instance if they were available in the Store for only a limited time, or were rewards for past Events.

Cosmetic Item Types Edit

Player Avatars Edit

Pale Rider Avatars

The Pale Rider premium avatars were available for a limited time. They were released in conjunction with the Midnight Ride and Carnival of Madness events.[1][2]

Avatars are used to represent each player. Each player can select artwork from various cards to represent themselves. Premium avatars also customize the "playmat" area around the art, and may include custom animations or emotes.

Emotes Edit

Emotes are short text messages that players use to greet, cheer, and taunt their opponents. Emotes are displayed by interacting with the player's avatar.

Cosmetic Settings Edit

Screenshot - Profile Screen

The player Profile screen.

Default cosmetic items are selected through the player Profile screen's settings. Avatars, emotes, totems, and cardbacks are all chosen in the Personalize sub-screen.

Cosmetics may be further customized for individual decks through the Deck Editor's Deck Customization screen, along with the deck's name and art.

History Edit

Before patch 1.44's update to deck and cosmetics customization, cosmetics were not selected from a unified sub-screen. Most cosmetics had their own individual sub-screens under the Profile, totems were selected in the Deck Selection screen found in many game modes, and only deck art was selected through the Deck Editor (cosmetics could not be customized for individual decks).
