It's not a bonus reward, but a replacement reward. From reading what Tim said, it sounds like Japan is replacing the Hand Item Sword with an Ornament Sword. From what I heard recently about Japan, they don't allow hand held weapons in that region.


That's very interesting. Odd for a country with such a rich history of melee weaponry, but (for once) it sounds like we're drawing the long straw on this one. Smiley Happy

You watch too many movies Julian LOL, but if movie references is what you enjoy, the movie "The Last Samurai" shows how westernization of Japan in the 1873 abolished the right to brandish weapons in public and to this day no weapons are allowed UNLESS its in a game in JP as well as JP Home.  Here's another excerpt for you from Wiki. Woman Happy

 

Emperor Meiji abolished the samurai's right to be the only armed force in favor of a more modern, western-style, conscripted army in 1873. Samurai became Shizoku (士族) who retained some of their salaries, but the right to wear a katana in public was eventually abolished along with the right to execute commoners who paid them disrespect.

You need 4,000 points to unlock the Golden Opal Ring.

 

BTW:  I've noticed that the red meter for the total points deposited in the community chest has been going up very fast, and is close to hitting the target amount needed for everyone to get the Tiger LMO Mount. So keep up the collecting everyone. Smiley Happy

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but respawning times for the jewels once collected is:
Red Jewel - 1 minute
Blue Jewel - 2 Minutes
Rare Jewel - 5 minutes

The Brasier is only available as a wish from the Kingdom of the Skies public space.  Does JP have that space as well?  I'm frankly surprised JP got the Haven of the Skies clubhouse as it seems JP rarely gets any LKWD content.

My friend said she didn't receive the sword display after choosing the wish either.  EDIT:  I also did not receive the display sword when I chose the wish just now.

From what I saw, JP only has the Jewel of the Skies personal space.  People are just accessing the Haven and wishes through NA clubs.  I might be wrong but I didn't see the Haven club for sale when I last checked over there.

EDIT Again:  I received a new carpet trail on my JP account in the clubhouse, not sure which it's substituting for or if it is:

That is the Zodiac Carpet Trail which in NA is available as a wish from the Genie's Lamp in the Haven of the Skies clubhouse.  It appears to be the rarest carpet trail, and is my favorite.

Ahh thanks for clearing that up,  I wasn't sure if it was limited to JP like the sword display.  It seems like there's a trail for each carpet design except the tiger stripped one or has someone received that one too?
