— In-game description
Aviator's Memory Box creates a box of aviator caps for anyone to play with. Effects can only be seen by players that interact with the box.
- Novelty Selection Box (discontinued)
- Characters spread their arms outward and have a forced smile.
- Arm position will remain during emotes, such as dancing.
- Many attack animations will be altered.
- Transformations that track the player model will work "normally". For instance, players using Ride Broom on an Enchanted Broom will continue to hold the broom in their hand.
- Characters make airplane noises while moving, jumping, and falling (adjusted with dialog volume options). Players will start with a take-off sound when they start moving and have a landing sound when they stop moving.
- Aviator Cap is worn by all characters, in addition to normal helm if not hidden.
- Cameras use sepia tone filters if the post-processing option is on high.
- While defeated, unique music is played.
- The effect can be removed by interacting with the box again, or by logging out to character select, or by using a transformation tonic (not all transformations work, eg. Endless Boss Chest Tonic does).
- This item has infinite uses.
- Cannot be used in PvP, WvW, or dungeons.
- Gives effect Transformed (Aviator).
- This item was added to the Gem Store on April 15, 2015 after the effect appeared during April Fools' Day 2015.
