If you bought the game in early access, you should have it then, I think. Go to one of the islands in adventure mode, say, your home base. Hit escape, there should be a button that says "DLC Shop". Click on that and all dlc you have (and can still buy) will be there. If you own it it will have a green check mark next to it. You want the "Gold Throne Gift Box" "Portal Pioneer gift box". Click on "redeem" and it will go into your inventory. It looks like a fancy chest. Place it on the ground and attack it with a weapon. (a mining pick doesn't work like it used to, odd) and pick up the stuff it drops. The "Rainbow Relic" is what gets you the island. Put it on your hotbar, 'equip it' (like you do with vacant island deeds) and left click. It puts the island on your map and transports you there.

I don't get it...why would they remove DLC? The only things currently available to buy are "Bitbot box", "Lobot box", and "Emoji box". I would very likely buy access to a new island, assuming it's reasonably priced. It seems they're missing out on additional sales revenue, unless this was intended to be an exclusive benefit to EA players (I only started playing a few weeks ago...125 hours and still going strong!)

It was supposed to be an EA exclusive but you can still buy it, if you know where to look. You can find it by googling "portal knights gold throne pack" or simpler still, here's its page https://store.steampowered.com/sub/165503/ (I think that link should work). You can't find it searching in Steam directly, so it's kind of a badly hidden secret? I don't know if the devs are happy when people find and buy it or are irritated.

Thanks! I'm going to snatch it up while I can (and it's 40% off).

Ok, just to be confusing because I'm a bit confused myself now, you also might want to get https://store.steampowered.com/sub/165499/ the Portal Pioneer pack (also an EA 'exclusive'). Looking at what is supposed to be in each pack, the rainbow relic should be in the Portal Pioneer pack, not in the Gold Throne pack, even though it's in both right now. Something wonky is going on with the EA dlc. The gold throne recipe and block recipes aren't dropping from the Gold Throne pack, but the rainbow relic is. So if the devs fix that and you want the rainbow island later in a different universe, you might not be able to get it from the Gold Throne pack.

Sorry about that. I just opened the first dlc box that caught my eye and it had the rainbow relic in it. I don't think it's supposed to be there. Let me know what dropped for you, out of curiousity.

No problem...even though I just bought the Gold Throne pack, at least it came with a few other goodies aside from Rainbow Island. So, I think I'll pick up the Portal Pioneer pack too. It's only another $1.79. :cotglit:
