Clothing rewards do NOT include rags and are of Good quality or better.

In addition to the mystery gift, every participant of the Wine Promotion will also receive a commemorative Wine themed trophy!

About Wine

Wine is a special seasonal item color that will not be available for general sale from Tailors or other in-game shoppes. It is available in this promotion as a familiar color, as the color of all the clothing prizes, as the primary and/or secondary color of the furniture prizes, as the color of the ship prizes, as the color of the trinket prizes and as a special chroma item.

About Chromas

Chromas are items that are carried in the Miscellaneous section of your Booty panel. They can be used to permanently change the primary or secondary color of any existing piece of clothing, except the Savvy Hat and any clothing item that lacks color options.

* The Wine-Painted ship items will be bestowed as a "sealed deed" item which can be used from your pirate's inventory to cause the prize ship's deed to appear. The prize ship will be docked at your home island. Wine-Painted ships are standard ships, and thus do not have a special "Limited Edition" icon on their dock/vessel image.
