46 boxes. Got the fuzzy boots within the first ten, then absolutely nothing.
12 apples
19 chocolate bars
14 pumpkin pies
1 pair fuzzy hooves

It's a trap!

Odds of Hooves or "Trick or Treat" Lockbox

Subject
Odds of Hooves or "Trick or Treat" Lockbox

The odds for "Trick or Treat" Lockbox appear to be:
1 in 10 for the Tier 6 Furry Hooves Boots,
1 in 20 for the Lost Ebian Graveyard Background,
1 in 45 for the Tier 13 Vampire's Embrace Cloak,
1 in 60 for the Tier 13 The Devil's Trident Weapon 1.0 Speed,
1 in 110 for the Tier 15 Underworld Trident Weapon 1.0 Speed,
1 in 110 for the Tier 9 Jack-o'-Buckler Light Shield with +50% Candy Corn when owned ( unequipped or equipped ) but could be 1 in 700,
29 in 110 for a Chocolate Bar,
29 in 110 for a Candy Apple,
29 in 110 for a Pumpkin Pie.

Using our Crude Lockbox Simulation:

https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4895

Tails equals 5 failed attempts to get Hooves,
Tails equals 10 failed attempts to get a Background,
Tails equals 22.5 failed attempts to get a Cloak,
Tails equals 30 failed attempts to get a Tier 13 Weapon 1.0 Speed,
Tails equals 55 failed attempts to get a Tier 15 Weapon 1.0 Speed,
Tails equals 55 failed attempt to get a Light Shield but it could be 350 failed attempts

MY PERSONAL OPINION
Justicar Zeetha wanted the Tier 13 Cloak. She saved 5,000 Candy Corn. Instead of just buying the Cloak, she first tried to win it in Lockbox. She spent 500 Candy Corn on 5 attempts. My rational being, if she won it in Lockbox, she would still have 4,500+ Candy Corn left, but if she did not win it, she could still buy it with her remaining Candy Corn.

She won four Treats ( awesome for Onslaught Raids ) and one Tier 13 Weapon ( valued at 6,000 Candy Corn ). She still had to spend 4,500 Candy Corn to buy the Cloak, but she got a Tier 13 Weapon. Due to Random Number Generators, you result will definitely vary.

So, if true, the odds of getting the T15 trident via lock boxes before spending 11,000 candy corn is 1 - (1-1/110)^110 = 63.4%. If you're dead set on the T15 trident and persistent enough to accumulate 11k corn, then the certainty of getting it means avoiding the lock boxes. I'm not a crazy burner so I figure I might get to 7-8k at best. Trying my luck, one toon has opened 51 boxes so far and gotten both T13 pieces (like the cloak, will keep pan instead of transferring enchants to trident). Still having fun, and the other treats are a nice bonus.

Got the wings on 3rd? box and the T15 on maybe the 9th box with my main. Didn't keep a good count. Still nothing on my other toons except for candy. I'd save up my candy corn to buy the things, but I have no impulse control when it comes to lockboxes :lol:
