    I'm looking at this and the changes look A+.

    It looking A+.

    Will this be retro-active, @Makarios ?

    - You will now always get a talisman cache if you get humgii tickets.

    This is GOOD.  THIS DEALS WITH IT NOT GIVING A GOOD PAYOUT.

    - Death talisman caches can now show up, for those of you that were hoping to complete that set next time globes came around. They're slightly rarer than the historical and marks sets.

    Death talisman pieces.  Literally always a good thing.

    - If you have 5 tradeskill slots already, you'll now get a talisman cache instead (guaranteed to be openable for any one of the three sets: marks, historical, or death).

    Hella.

    - Shop cart kits are now tradein-able for 5 bound credits.

    ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    - When you get a shop cart kit in the globes, you'll also either get a talisman cache or a mayan crown. The crowns are more likely in this situation.

    fuck yeah

    - Historical talisman set pieces now all have a tradein value of 10 credits.

    Well damn, this looks good too.

    I definitely support the trend of trying to even out the RNG promos, and making them feel worth it to everyone instead of some people having bad luck and not feeling like they got any value from their purchase and then of course regretting it.

    Just keep in mind folks that it is extremely hard to keep these things worth it while also fair - most of these things have value that is decided by the player base and not by admin. I'm sure they always have a base they assign things, but it might not always be accurate.

    For example - grand magi sold several well over 4k credits (I think 1 at 5 or 6k too). But death cape went for 400-1400 depending on when and who you bought from, and is a much more useful item that provides that value of over 4k worth of artefacts (with the caveat being it's hunting only, of course). If I had guessed the value of those items before they were released, I would have flip flopped them.

    So give them a bit of wiggle room on this type of stuff - @Makarios has shown he will make things right when valid complaints are brought up!

    For me, the main issue is when those pieces have no value that isn't determined by other players, and are also available in such large quantities that people simply don't want to buy them, so you've essentially received items that have no value at all. This is the exact issue that we had with minipets until it was recently resolved (though there are still some minipets that have this issue!). I don't think it's that unreasonable to expect everything I receive from RL cash to have a credit value I can obtain without needing to involve other players, which means every single item from a globe/wheel spin/giftbag/talisman cache having a redeem value, even if that value is relatively low.

    And he does cute things.


    The delicate body of this small songbird is carved from a single piece of bleached bone, with most of the smaller feathers indicated by notches and incisions in the surface. Thin, faintly translucent pieces of the osseous material make up the remainder of its plumage, from its sleek tail to the tips of its remarkably flexible wings. Each such feather shifts and adjusts individually by means of thin, sinewy cords and miniature cogs and pulleys attached to the underlying structure; so tiny are these mechanisms, and so well-matched in colour, they are almost indistinguishable from the form of the bird itself. An ashen hue stains all but the bright ivory breast, and a dark mask has been burned around the artificial avian's hard, black eyes. Its talons are needle sharp, and its beak has been carved into the rapacious curve of a predator. A bone shrike looks relatively helpless. He has 100% health remaining. He weighs 9 ounce(s).

    If a Mhaldorian was reborn as a songbird. It'd be a shrike... their Latin name means 'butcher'. They even imitate the bird songs of other birds to lure them to their demise. That is one brutal songbird.




    That is not an ordinary star, my son. That star is the tear of a warrior. A lost soul who has finished his battles somewhere on this planet. A pitiful soul who could not find his way to the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all.

    So based on the Announce post, it sounds like not all caches can be opened for each of the three sets (Death, Historical, Marks), with most only being able to be opened for Historical or Marks? How do you tell what sets a cache can be opened for?

    If you do OPEN CACHE with no argument it'll tell you.

    Gosh these talisman caches are horrid though. My inner retard kicked in and started yelling at me when this scrolled by. "Hey look, you found your dummy family you big dummy!"
    I... Don't understand why there are so many types of dummies.
  • ProceleanProcelean Member Posts: 17 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    All the dummy pieces I now own kind of sums up my feelings about myself for buying globes.

    The ivory/quisalis dummy pieces redeem in at ~37cr per. If you have too many of them I will gladly accept your extras.

    Spent $80 got a bunch of things including band of tenacity. The thing is though every since my goblet was taken away after it customized to not decay and I had the thing for weeks like that, I have serious trust issues. I feel like when real money is involved it's easy to get that cheated feeling. Especially when you get one good thing out of tons of bad and then someone comes along and goes lolnope. Now I'm always going to be looking over my shoulder wondering if the invisible hands are going to take something else away.

    I still feel guilty about the goblet. If I hadn't been trying to get mine given a custom description and had a question about it, it'd have continued to slip by and we'd still have em :(

    So it looks like things are quite good value now compared to just buying credits. Dollar for dollar value, etc.

    Would you guys agree that it's worthwhile dumping $200 or so on globes now instead of throwing that much at credits?
  • EpifaniaEpifania Member Posts: 41 ✭✭ - Stalwart
    I don't blame you Datrius didn't even know it was you. I'm more unhappy with the lack of response I got when directly messaging and having to take an item of someone's choosing at the time having zero use for that item and it only trading in for 10bcr instead of someone working with me and coming to an agreed resolution. I can't respect that process is all. Devran I'm not certain. Still too many credit rewards/artefact upgrades/discount vouchers. If you like an element of risk though go for it. It certainly can provide more fun than just buying straight credits. As far as the death talismans too many cheap pieces in those caches. Marks one worked out better at least for me.
  • DevranDevran Member Posts: 322 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Artifact discount/upgrades count as a direct 1:1 credit ratio for me, as I have several tiered artifacts I have my eyes on, so getting those would be a win for me as long as it's high enough. If I got a voucher for more credits than I could buy for the dollar value of a globe, I'd count that a win.

    Artifact vouchers are pretty good value here as long as there are artifacts that you want.

    Let's say you buy 15 globes at roughly $71. Let's say you get 15 vouchers. That's 375 credits worth of vouchers you got at roughly the same price as 200 credits. That's roughly a +87% credit sale. That's huge. Sure, they're more restricted than credits, but they're definitely not a waste.

     And even if you buy cheap artifacts with them and trade them in for credits you still come up with something like 16ish credits per globe, and you only have to average out to something like less than 13.3 credits per globe for globes to stop being a better deal than credits. That's not impossible; you could roll nothing but lucky sips and pet crates. However, it's not very likely imo. The globes as they stand now seem to be a pretty solid promotion in terms of bang:buck.
