Stockings!

DochithaDochitha Posts: 1,128Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
Love the new talisman set reading from news post, haven't got any stockings, gonna get some clarification first. 

So we have 4 types of stockings, logomas, fancy, grand, extravagant. 

My question is: each stocking will have at least 1 talisman piece. Does better stockings get more pieces, or higher value pieces? 

Need accurate information on this, don't like guesses any more. Thanks.

    The way this works is:

    - As you go up the stocking tiers, your base rarity goes up. What this functionally means is your chances at better pieces is higher because the pool of targets gets smaller (you will have no chance at pulling a brooch of the tempest or an air elemental in an extravagant stocking for instance, because your base rarity is simply too high). That's an extreme example, but I imagine that should make how that part works clear.

    - You have a chance at getting an extra talisman piece in every type of stocking. The chance of that ranges from low (normal stockings) to guaranteed (extravagant).

    - Additionally, as you go up the stocking tiers your stockings "value" goes up. This means what you pull alongside your talisman pieces will be better. The value of your talisman piece does detract from this, but there is also a cap on how much that can knock off your worth - so pulling a harness piece won't destroy your stockings value for instance.

    I'm confused - if the Extravagant is the highest tier stocking, why wouldn't it be able to get those highly valued prizes? 

    Maybe I don't grok what 'base rarity' means?

    Because items valued at like 38 (150/4)  or 60 credits are not worth as much as items valued at like 400 credits (1/4 of 1600 or whatever it is)

    Basically its what Kiet said. The prizes I listed are the ones worth very little in terms of credit value - extravagant stockings limit themselves to the prizes that are guaranteed a higher payout, because of the upfront cost of purchasing one of those particular stockings.

    I bought 5 of the fancy stockings for 74 USD.

    My return was ~500 credits worth of talisman tradeins/sales, two permanent tattoos and an artie vial. Worthhhhhh.

    Two $5 stockings:


    You have been awarded with The lightning for an Air Elemental talisman piece!

    You open a logosmas stocking and find 10 Humgii betting tickets, a wooden box of parts, 1311 gold sovereigns, 1715 gold sovereigns, a group of 19 bloodroot leaves, and a group of 19 ginseng roots inside!


    You have been awarded with The essence for an Air Elemental talisman piece!

    You open a logosmas stocking and find a featureless ice figurine, a group of 10 coal pieces, a group of 10 coal pieces, and a group of 7 pieces of rope inside!


    Laughed so hard at the coal! But overall definitely worth it!

    I definitely think that this months promo will be mich better than the previous two months. 

    Can’t afford too many, but I might indulge in a few to give out as Christmas presents!

    Harness looks amazingly good, although does it also allow the return flight? Can people follow you?

    You really lucked out on the sceptre piece. 250 credits if you redeem it, but can likely sell it for more.
  • KayleKayle Posts: 81Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    It has no redeem value. I checked. Brooch is 18 mandible 25 pendant 25 glyph 106 scepter 0
  • TelendriethTelendrieth Posts: 146Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I'll buy that glyph piece from you if you're parting with it. :P  Also, you should maybe bug the redeem value on that.

    Speaking of the glyph, anyone complete one yet?
