In late 2019, we held the first ExileCon convention in Auckland, New Zealand. ExileCon gave us a great opportunity to experiment with new merchandise for Path of Exile such as the Celestial Cat Socks, Exalted Orb Foam Balls, various plush toys and a lot of different t-shirt designs. We sold much of this merchandise during ExileCon but we do have some very limited stock left over, and have been trying to find a fair way to make it available to players who were unable to attend the event. Today's news post details our plan.

For many merchandise items, we had to hit minimum quantity thresholds in order for them to be possible. So we knew we were going to be left with a few hundred thousand dollars of merchandise that we'd need to sell after the event. We're not able to handle the logistics of running a general merchandise store ourselves at the moment, and we also worry that the best items would sell out instantly. We tried to find a straightforward way to sell all of the remaining stock and make it available for purchase for anyone who may have missed out on being able to attend in person. We would rather that this money was being spent on development rather than filling up a storage unit.

We have packaged the merchandise into Mystery Bags that are identified by their shirt sizes. When you buy a bag of a specific shirt size, you're guaranteed at least two Path of Exile t-shirts (in different designs) and one plushie. The other items in the bag are also random and are picked to top the value up so that all the bags are worth approximately the same amount. For clarity, these bags do not contain any past exclusive supporter pack physical merchandise. It's just the merchandise that we made for ExileCon. Each ExileCon Mystery Bag contains at least its face value in merchandise, with a chance to receive items that are in lower stock or higher demand. Unfortunately, we cannot offer to sell specific merchandise directly or to let people choose which random outcome they get, as the most popular pieces of merchandise are also the ones we have the fewest left of.

The bags are priced at $100 USD + shipping (and sales tax if you're in New Zealand). If you want to buy one, contact merch@grindinggear.com and let them know your address and your desired shirt size (you can't pick which specific mystery bag outcome you'll get, only your shirt size). They'll calculate a total and will send you a payment link. If you pay within 24 hours, you'll be locked in. Otherwise it'll go to the next person in the queue. Because these may sell fast, there's initially a limit of one bag per customer.


Please note that there are no hoodies left in stock and they are not included in the mystery bags.



Below, you can find the nine possible random outcomes for each mystery bag purchase. Below that, you can view what quantity of each outcome is available for each shirt size.
