If you're feeling a little courageous, take a look at The Final Reckoning Pack. This includes the Catrina Outfit, the Mourning Glory Back Bling, the Willow Outfit, Dolly Back Bling, Blacklight Outfit, and Indigo Wings Back Bling.

Then there is the Storm King LTM, which rewards you with a special Umbrella when you manage to stop the Storm King himself. There is also the 2v2 showdown Gun Fright which drops you in the middle of a fast-paced firefight and tests your skills and communication.
