    1. [Hallows] looks fine to me. Though I could also see it being [Harrows] just with the way it sounds similar (though I doubt it cause it’s Hallows’ eve/Halloween).

    1. The command is for switching registered Fashion sets in “My Fashion” – not the “My Set” in the Class counter.

    2. The My Fashion set chat commands were added already some time ago… So this indeed is about My Set command. My bad. (Needs a memory upgrade and reading comprehension test)
      Can’t see much other use for it other than you don’t need to run to the Class Counter every time you want to change class and equipment. Making it a chat shortcut would make switching sets on the fly very fast too.

  1. I don’t understand how your going to wait to release Halloween related content on Oct 5th but then play before AC #29 scratch 2016 which doesn’t exist in-game campaign that includes Halloween content but ends 2 weeks before this official Halloween update?
