Every month, you can complete challenges in the Traveler’s Log to earn a maximum of 500 Trader’s Tender.

Filling this bar twelve times over twelve months will earn you the Burden of Unrelenting Justice Ensemble containing two Warden Sentinel outfits.

There are tasks to suit every possible playstyle (even Pet Battlers), and you’ll typically fill the bar passively as you play the game.
