- Began appearing when NS13 started.
- Given upon the anniversary of a character's creation, with gifts corresponding to the number of years that have been played, displaying the following message on the Main Map immediately after login:
- Your player creation date also contains the time, so you will not get your gift until you first log in on your anniversary after the time your account was created.
- If it is not the exact day, the message will say Happy Belated Anniversary!
- Players whose characters had already passed their milestones upon the release of NS13 got their packages at rollout containing all gifts they should have earned by that date with the announcement above having the title changed to Happy Belated Anniversary!
- In case the account hasn't been logged in for several anniversaries, the anniversary gift box will contain multiple items.
- If it is a player's first anniversary after the "you acquire" message, but before the second line of images will be the message:
- You've been granted access to a new chat channel: /veteran
- Due to a bug in the initial implementation, some players got multiples of earlier year items rather than the proper set based on their years of play. On July 20, 2007, the existing anniversary items were removed from all players and a new gift box delivered.
- Due to a database glitch on September 29, 2007, a number of players received anniversary boxes even if it wasn't their anniversary. This explains how some players can have more than one of a particular anniversary gift or more than 11 boxes in their collections.
- When used in Ronin or Hardcore, gives the message "Sorry, but you can't open this present in Ronin or Hardcore."
- If you have more than one anniversary gift box, opening one will give you the latest gift item you don't have yet.
- You will no longer receive Anniversary gift boxes after the 11th one.
