K, got it working, but the weapon mtx doesn't double for dual wield like most weapon mtxs you can only get one of, is this a bug?

Yes, we'll be enabling this in future. We will need to wait for a different patch in order to set this up.

Didnt get the Footprints... only Portal and Weapon effect...

It looks like there was a technical error with your account. I've manually added the footprints to your account now. Sorry for the delay!

Mmm Just did all the steps, and I can't see it on microtransaction part of the game.

I have nothing there :/

I just double checked your account and it doesn't look like you've succeeded in redeeming them. Could you please try again?

I'm getting this error on the path of exile twitch page: Failed to check for new Twitch account items. Please check back later!

Too many people trying?

That's likely to be the case. If you try again it should work.
