Alchemist's Lockboxes

Postby Musketeer » Thu Jul 05, 2012 12:56 pm

First off, a GINORMOUS thank you to Venan for listening to our moans and coming up with a great solution.

It's now possible to change out your silver much more quickly, and for something you can use. We still face the task of upconverting Squire and Soldier Valor to Knight Valor, but that's not so bad.

From a small sample (288 boxes), You will usually win one of: 40 Squire Valor, 20 Soldier Valor, 10 Knight Valor, 10 Hero Tokens, 1 Gold Shield, or 500 Silver.

***Original Valor values were 40/30/20 but appear to have been cut by the bug fix shortly after the original update.***

Occasionally you will get a 10x reward. I've seen 400 Squire and 200 Knight Valor, so can assume 300 Soldier Valor will appear eventually (now values will be 400/200/100). I haven't seen personally 100 Hero tokens, 10 Gold Shields or 5,000 Silver yet, but they might be there. Just had confirmation of 100 Hero Tokens from a Guild colleague.

Ratios are about 25% Squires, 15% Soldier, 10% Knight, 17% Hero Tokens, 15% silver, 18% Gold Shields.

The alchemist box does not give as good a return as actual raiding, nor should it, so it's still desireable to raid as often as possible for your valor and hero points. You'll also pick up occasional Gold shields on a raid, and silver, The silver is now more useful to those of us who don't need to use it for gem slots of equipment.

It does provide a mechanism for a player who can never raid to actually buy some of that high end equipment. A player could now play the game entirely in isolation from Guilds and still be able to equip with Tier 11 goodies.

Id like to also thank Venan for these.

The numbers are correct considering that's what I got. However my odds went like this (so far) but my guild said the knights and squires were those amounts.

1 : 10 Hero tokens
2 : 1 Gold Shield
3 : 1 Gold Shield


So no argument, but shields may be more common.

I'll add you 3 to my sample of 216, thanks. All data is useful.

Within 5 boxes one had the 300 soldier so I can confirm it is there.

I saw 400 Hero Tokens once, but that was before the fix.

I think you saw wrong. Max hero tokens was 100. 400 was the max squire valors.

I take 20-30 lockboxes every day and 40-50 lockboxes on weekend. Still, I didn't see 100 knights valor, 100 hero tokens or 10 GS. There is my statistics:
30% - 40% 40 Squire Valor or 500 Silver
20% - 30% 10 Hero tokens
15% - 20% 20 Soldier Valor, GS or 400 Squire Valor
<10% - 10 Knights valor or 200 Soldier Valor
What can change the nature of a man?
