Goblin Lockbox

Has anyone hit it with a bunch of ornament? Did it give you many gems?

I'm debating about whether to burn for extra ornament. The drop rate (1-2%?) isn't worth it by itself so I was wondering how the lockbox was.

I ran 100 ornaments through the lockbox as well and ended up with consumables, coal and event gear. No ornaments.

I suspect that as always the lockbox is going to be potentially better if you're really lucky but will normally be worse. I've never risked currency when I definitely need something, always wait and buy while on an elixir.

I never risk with the lockbox, but I am considering how much I want to try to farm the event vs farm TSR once I hit my necessary items.

Ran 200+ lockbox, 1 large stick, the rest consumables. My luck at play again I'm guessing

First a thank you, as I'm glad they have something for higher level toons, unlike the last event. However, i to am a bit disappointed with lock boxes. I have Run over 225 ornaments through them and got two gems and one peppermint stick. Problem of course is one of the gems was redundant to another I did not need. Wish we could buy more of the dodge infused gems of choice, as those of us with bad luck don't get the items we are looking for!

It's intentional that you can only buy a few. Otherwise a select few who could drop cash would simply buy as many red gems of whatever type they need and have an insane bonus to dodge in pvp.

Lockboxes are what they are. I'd say two gems for a few hundred through the box isn't too bad, it could easily have been zero. Most people will buy the nine if they have enough, gamble any remainder in the box and maybe keep hitting for a chance of getting one as a drop. Half of my toons got at least one from the goblin that way.

It's times like these where toons with multiple melee/magic specs or genuine hybrid builds have the advantage over the others (for once).

So far after many tries (300-400 i dont know how many exactly) i got two magic Dodge gems from the box. Just like usual buy important stuff first (or dont spend the required amount in the lockbox on the last day) and then box everything
