Please no superheroes! Let some part of life be untouched by that tedium.

Yeah, kind of out of period. Pulp Fiction skins way more would fit with 1906/1920 themes.

Did Klei really re-purpose the dab animation for the lucky whistle? It looks quite similar...

It makes sense to re-use the assets if they have them (especially since they have been pressed for time lately) so probably.

Nice catch. I didn't notice its similarity to the unused dab animation until your post.

It seems that skins from last year's event such as the Rooslet and Trapper Hats don't drop. And I hope the chance to get them will come back soon because I'm not sure if I'll be able to wait 11 years for the next Year of the Rooster. :wilson_dead:

But on the other hand, I probably will still be playing DST then, so I don't mind it that much.

Because I can't control my addiction for skins
Because I like to support Klei, I bought both the spring bundles. Steam would like to say otherwise though.

I bought the Verdant Spring Chest from the Steam store page, but the Beating Heart Chest from Klei's in-game store. I just found it odd that the two purchases were rendered inherently different. (Also slight ocd about it displaying the Verdant Chest as an owned dlc but not the Beating Heart Chest.) I'm not sure if these were applied to the Forge and Snowfallen bundles, but I'm guessing they were too.

What are the odds of getting a curio chest? I only got 3 chests and most of them being commons and spiffies. I feel like the curio chest drops were toned down alot.

Nope. Curio Chests replace all common item drops. So you got 3 chests and some higher rarity item/spring chest, I guess.

The classic curio chests are pretty much just 4 standard rolls all wrapped up into one drop. Just be glad you're getting spiffies.

I'm not really complaining was just wondering why chests weren't dropping frequently

Following up on my previous post, I particularly would want the Quilted Outerwear and Dainty Coatdress, but I'm not sure if it has been confirmed if those can drop this year. I understand that the Rooster/Gobbler themed skins wouldn't drop, but I thought the Outerwear and Coatdress would be available to drop annually.

Now that you remind me, last year we had event skins (actual event skins) that were wearable by everyone during the Year of the Gobbler, but I don't remember seeing them this time. It seems that we don't have them now?... :( (the chicken slippers is maybe understandable, but the others?)

I know!  I was thinking about that too--the Chinese-style robes,tunics, etc.  I said it before and it still stands now--that stuff would work equally well _for ANY Lunar New Year event_. So I'm kinda surprised they didn't bring 'em back!

I didn't fully notice until I went to put on my "High Priestess of Starvania" outfit and pose in front of my shiny new Varg shrine

(because I didn't get around to changing into a new outfit until then), but when I did...yeah, no fancy robes to wear except a silk bathrobe.  Huh.

Last year's picture was way cooler-looking, but oh well.  : P

Should be back on now if you login again. My mistake!

Oh, so not I was blind but these skins were really not in-game before! I was a bit confused, thanks for the clarification! :)

Is the Walrus Hounds friendable? 

Yep. They're not very useful, though. MacTusk takes them out pretty quickly with his blow darts.
