    It is bleh. Not sure why I was expecting anything more though.

    /..\ I’ve feedbacked soooo many times about all the furniture items that are programmed in the game but unobtainable (you can snag item tags off Zam and look at them. I think it’s stuff from when they designed zones), and I was soooo elated thinking they were going to make some of them available now on the loyalty merchant… ah well….. maybe next time. :\

      It would seem it is not true. I seem to be getting the correct rewards except for the scrolls for collections gained by low level characters. On leveling a character to 92 and claiming the scroll, no bonus.
