Eric Musco updated the forum community about the upcoming Apprentice’s Shadow Pack rarities, that comes with tomorrows game update. Some of them are not labeled correctly. Apprentice’s Shadow Pack Rarities | 02.11.2015, 09:14 PM Hey folks, For those of you looking forward to the Apprentice’s Shadow Pack coming out tomorrow, I want to let you know of a discrepancy you will find in the rarities listed in Collections.
