    This month my extra wages are going on getting dentistry and a Canadian visa application. No regrets.
    I support this. Part of me is like WTF ACHAEA. But the other part is like they can't ALWAYS have great promos or the value of things would be zero.

    I purchased a last small batch of historical and was able to get the disc piece I needed. Hella glad I did since they removed the set.

    I've actually done pretty well out of Monks pieces so far, though it took a bit of work buying extra pieces to complete sets. If I didn't have other things I want to buy this month I'd probably buy another lot of 30.

    I don’t remember if I said this yet that while my cash investment didn’t get me any closer to robes I did end up with 1107 credits without really hustling the sale of pieces. So not a bad investment overall just frustrating that the pieces I do need aren’t showing up.

    @Trey I have no idea what the sprite is valued at, and I don't recall the price on the vault, but here's what I can do (assuming I'm remembering my artefact prices correctly) if you just redeemed that lot:

    18 for the top hat pieces, 156 for hourglass pieces, 90 for brooch pieces, 50 for ring of flying piece, 186 for celerity pieces, 100 for buckawn's piece, 125 for grimoire piece, 250 for wings piece makes 975. Add on whatever redeem value is for the sprite and vault pieces you have and you probably end up a bit below 1050 credits.

    Spending $320 on straight credits would get you ~1065 credits (I used the 30 cents per number from the 1000 credit package, so 320/0.3), or ~1170 if you have Iron Elite.

    Obvious candidates for increasing your return would be trying to obtain more hourglass (valued at 100, so trades in for 66) and top hat (valued at 150 [I think], so trades in for 100) pieces; even if you buy at a bit above redeem value you should still end up ahead once you complete them and trade in.

    Better than I thought then. Wish people were selling the wings pieces! I've heard a couple of each piece dropped, but if that's true the people who have them are being pretty hush about it. I doubt anyone's trying for seafaring pieces or I might've tried for islandwings as an alternate.

    People, stop spending money on this month's promotion. We have all said it is trash. If you stop spending money, they will either mid-month change it or never have the sale again. But at this rate, they will see it as a profit and run it again because people like me spent 1,500 dollars this month and ended up with around 4.5 credits and a mayan figurine.

    It was trash in the beginning...  I was waiting for marks because there's only one thing I want there.  Figured I'd at least get ONE piece of it.  Nope.  So no more caches for me

    Robes needle is the second most common piece (common in this context means number in circulation, all pieces have the same chance of dropping from caches). Thread is tied for third place, there are a few around.
