What a crock of crap this event is!

Lucky the Leprechaun Event

Lucky is back! Will you win his pot of gold shields? Lucky will have a chance to appear in all non-onslaught raid phases throughout the duration of the event! Defeat him and earn Lucky Clovers! Redeem 5 clovers at Majerio's shop to unlock a special Mystery Box and win a random prize! Will you be lucky enough to get his pot of 500 gold shields? Or maybe a new piece of Tier 19 gear? Or win a Lucky gem!?

To clarify, he will still appear in non-onslaught phases of multiple phase raids:
  • War of Fellmarsh (Phases 1-3 & 5)
  • Karnak's Final Stand (Phase 1)
  • Legacy of Blades Raids (Phases 1 & 4)
  • The Rise of the Spider Queen (Phase 1 & 2)
  • The Shadow Returns (Phase1)
He will not appear in Crypt of Corruption and in Gobblin' Goblins.

Majerio's shop is where you can find Lucky's items and Lockbox. The items will only be available in Majerio's shop during the event. There is no additional time like we do for other events.

Lucky's event will start on March, 17th at 2pm EDT / 6pm GMT and end on March 23rd at 6am EDT / 10am GMT.

What's New?
New exclusive items added to the event! Lucky Precision, Haste and Dodge Gems!
Updated Lucky the Leprechaun's attributes and abilities.
Update The Rise of the Spider Queen and The Shadow Returns raids to include Lucky the Leprechaun.
Reduced the prices of some 2015 Lucky's Event items.
Improved the odds on all items in the Lockbox.[/quote]

This is a very sorry event.
The chances of getting anything more than trivial crap outweighs the effort spent. DO NOT expect much for all those clovers you turn in

Despite all that has been said, I am trying to stay positive......

1. If you just played your normal game (assuming you raid), then getting a few lucky clovers would give you a chance at a lockbox you wouldn't have otherwise had
2. The contents of the lockboxes include items most players are interested
(I need t19 gear, t7 gems and 500gs for example)
3. I like the idea of new gems and effects, and although 70k might end-gamers get reduced benefit due to diminishing returns, anything that gives us something to think about is good.
4. It seems the crit gem issue is not favoured by hybrid builds, but specialist builds get a benefit, these lucky gems don't go in yellow slots, but they do open the door to having gems with other effects.... Like energy, healing, status resist, initiative boosts....maybe it's the start of something new.....

I am going to plug away...get maybe 100+ Clovers per toon, then get my lucky son to open the lockboxes.
If it goes badly, I will put him on eBay..... If it goes well, I will shower him in adoration.

The lockboxes have to be random, but if each won item was not replaced for next draw, it would at least mean you were more likely to get what you were after the more clovers you got.

This would follow the adage..."the harder I try..the luckier I get"

Either way, I have my fingers crossed that one day Venan will take all the dud stuff out of the lockboxes.
Items that may be better received could include
1. enchanters lockbox, or enchanting stuff
2. Various GS payouts
3. Energy potions payouts (small medium large extra large) after all....no epots dropped
4. Valour rewards ...(might appropriate)
5. T7 gem shards
6. Crit recipes, crit resist recipes (class appropriate)
7. Transfer plates
8. Silver payouts level /might appropriate....obviously you shouldn't give a starter toon 1m, but there is no point giving an endgamer 10k

I have gotten large e-pots from the lockbox, twice.

Others have received 100gs!

So the payouts can be huge.

Well said TTA. I've received multiple fortune and luck elixirs and a 10 large epot drop. Burning is not redemptive in this event. I don't think you'll benefit. If you have the urge, you probably should just buy the gear at the end. I'm actually enjoying the fast raids, probably more than I have in months. Anyway, as an end gamer, my goal is to have fun with the game as much as possible. Chat is really what keeps me logging in. I love the majority of players here. The devs need to add a karaoke feature....

It would be nice to have a wardrobe addition of a green t-shirt that says I Got Lucky. It could become available for purchase after 100 kills of Lucky for a minimal fee or as a lockbox reward.

Lucky event ends :))
at March 23rd 6am EDT / 10am GMT
When does the store close? Maybe the last lockboxes will make us more happy than all before...

I hope those like me who got 0 from this horribly designed event will complain to venan about how they program future ones. I got gold shields and gems merely by participating in the raids...it was a joke about getting gold shields from the lock box. They need to demote the programer of this event to janitor!
