Crown Crate Drop Success Rate Thread (Live Server)

Figured I'd make a thread for those of us who will be buying crown crates when they go live to share with others what our drop rates are.

Did you purchase a single crown crate, a bundle of 4 crates, or a bundle of 15 crates? What drops did you get?

    I'll be buying 5000 crowns worth of crates to test them out. I'll be turning all my consumables into gems.

    I guess it'd be wise to jot down how many gems we got from our spending spree too.

    This is exactly what I will be doing today as well!

    You won't get 100% honesty in the numbers reported, and there's no way to vet the numbers to ensure their validity. Best to go into this knowing that there's going to be a significant margin of error, and that any results tabulated from the data are going to be estimates rather than absolutes.

    The only people who will have accurate data are the ones who likely won't to be sharing it.

    If I get the crates I will most certainly share it all here.

    I am going to buy many of these crates.
    Not yet probably, because I am waiting for the elven hero costume.

    Is there a list of what can drop from the coming chests ?

If it is not completely honest data then it is better not to post it at all.

    together we can get a better insight than any 1 person alone. The 'facts' produced may support how you already feel about crown crates, but don't post false info just to turn the results into what you want them to be

    They allegedly upped the rates for rarer items for the crates hitting Live, so people who want to spend crowns on Live will help the rest of us see if the rates are truly worth it now, or it's like a drop in the bucket.

    Plus, some people have a ton of money and just want to buy shinies. If they use their ton of money and report which shinies they got, it's better for all of us. On a mobile game I play there's people who will roll each special gacha (same deal really) like a hundred+ times which lets the rest of us see the rough rates.

    Um, they said I should post here if I wanted to ask if Crown Crates were a good idea or not?

    Kidding. I swear, jks. I'm not much of a gambler, but I'll probably buy a few, just to see. I'll even vid-capture it and post the link later to confirm my results.

    I would love to do it on the PTS. But the Crates aren't on the PTS any more and the drop rates have changed since they were.

    In my country there is a law that forces any kind of public lotteries to show clearily the % of winnings. Guess in many other is the same ^^

    I understand the idea of this thread, but you do realise drop rates whatever they are will be continually monitored and manipulated per day, they most certainly will not want too many rare items dropping, that would be stupid, they will want them to stay rare, and have value.

    Nothing which drops in a mmo as a set drop rate, never has had, never will have, everything is monitored and 'tweaked' regularly, That is why they will NEVER release drop rates for items, they can't.

    one thing I am positively sure of is this new system of ours will generate far more revenue than happy players, that's what they are designed to do.

    @Mercutio

    For the PTS I was labeling them like this:
    *****example, DO NOT ADD to tally*****
    Box 1:
    Lethal Poison
    Fortifying Meal
    Riding lesson: Speed
    Jawbone adornment

    Box 2: (5 cards)
    Warrior's Elixier
    Mimic stone
    Lethal Poison
    Epic scroll
    Mind shriven Horse

    Box 3:
    Warrior's Elixir (×2)
    Fortifying Meal
    Jawbone (dup 5 gems)
    ****************************************

    Hopefully we can have players label the gems for the consumables they don't want and the total for the box. That would really help.

    Too bad they're not putting the revised system on the PTS for testing first. I'm not participating but will be interested to see the results from people who are. If you get really good results I am still not interested in buying, but I might stop calling them a rip-off.

    Second or thirding the suggestion that you use a Google doc to update results - that worked pretty well in the first PTS test.
