Wave 2 Aether Prestige Rewards Aether Prestige Costume Additions & Updates The Prestige Costume icons have been simplified and now there are only four, and they correspond to the Tier / Rarity of the costume. Tier 1 / Common / White Tier 2 / Uncommon / Yellow Tier 3 / Rare / Orange Tier 4 / Very Rare / Purple 'Mode' has been dropped from the names of costumes that change based on the body type of the user and they no longer incur a price increase on the BenevoLabs vendor. Costumes that change based on the user's body type have been noted in BenevoLab vendor's offerings and in the costume power's descriptions. Some specific Prestige Costumes have had sheathed/holstered weapon displays enabled on them for specific body types. This means your normal costume's body type must match the costume's in order for the weapon to display. The type that inherits is noted in the description. Costumes that are compatible have been noted in the BenevoLab vendor's offerings and in the costume power's descriptions. Look for these on the vendor if you're interested!
