These items can be used in battles only and will not be traded at the market.

Besides, experience and drop rates in expeditionary battles will be x3 only on 9 October 2012!

Appirits hopes the Leif Erikson event may encourage their players to go on expedition more to collect Leif Erikson sets which will give them much benefits on battlefield.
