    bought a whole host of (not really expensive) stockings, gave some away but kept a decent portion of them. I got 3 wood commodities, I'm not even dissapointed just... why three? Why not a pretty number like 5?

    You open a logosmas stocking and find a group of 3 candycanes, a sharpened Logosmas tree trunk, 
    and a group of 10 coal pieces inside!

    Bereft of its usually festively-decorated branches, the remnants of festive garland encircling 
    it nevertheless identify this as a Logosmas tree. Sharpened to a fine point at one end, with a 
    few branches near the tip serving as barbs to prevent removal of anything impaled upon it, this 
    decoration now serves a more sinister purpose. Bark and branches shaved close, this trunk is 
    now smooth and unmarred along most of its length, the better to serve its new purpose, the 
    shreds of remaining decoration ready to serve a final insult to the victim displayed on this 
    macabre ornament.
    It weighs about 40 pounds.



    "Ooohhhhhhhhhh," you say.

    You exclaim in a refined, velvet-coated voice, "I can pike heads on a tree trunk!"

    You say in a refined, velvet-coated voice, "How freaking festive is that?"

    I got 5 grand stockings. I got 27-30 average candy canes per stocking and 4 tundral drinking horns with one Northern cache that contained a young boar pet.

    I feel pretty good about that, the worthless pet made me cry but the 400cr for the drinking horn tradeins made it good. I didn't win big but could have lost my ass and the odds were seemingly in my favor with the 4/5 respectable payouts.

    With the grand stocking in play so long as I get double candy canes when I open it (regardless of the bonus item) I won't feel too bad I spent more on Achaea this month than the wife and I spent on our car insurance. Maybe a alittle bad tho

    edit: with the grand "logosmas" stocking in play etc

    You have received 18 giftbags as a part of the current promotion.
    The big prize is within the next twenty five giftbags!

    Didn't get the big prize, why does achaea RNG hate me so much? :(

    So after the delay, opened a golden(platinum) stocking:

    You open a logosmas platinum stocking and find 10 Humgii betting tickets, a group of 5 balls of seftonium, a group of 5 balls of seftonium, a worn whetstone, 2025 gold sovereigns, a group of 10 wood commodities, a group of 21 goldenseal roots, a group of 28 ginseng roots, a group of 6 coal pieces, a group of 7 coal pieces, a group of 8 steel bars, and a group of 8 wood commodities inside!


    No candycanes at all? And the whetstone doesn't have a value to trade it in. I don't mean to sound ungrateful but I was counting on candycanes...


    Edit: Braved the second:

    You open a logosmas platinum stocking and find 25 credits, a wooden box of parts, 1059 gold sovereigns, 753 gold sovereigns, 943 gold sovereigns, and a group of 18 bloodroot leaves inside!

    That at least had 25 unbound credits, but they don't seem in line with what I'd been getting.

    Lol, at least you didn't get this:
    You open a grand platinum stocking and find a Ledolian Surcoat, a Ledolian Surcoat, 1416 gold
    sovereigns, and 2037 gold sovereigns inside!

    Yay, something I can empower a total of 10 times. Just 10. Then it's nothing.

    They redeem for 49cr each...

    My Fancy golden stocking was awesome, though.

    Ok so cool with the crown, but you figure with us spending what we are, that there would be more of a prize for having to wait so long for all the stockings to fill not to mention what we are actually paying out to get these stockings in?

    Can whetstones please be promo tradein-able? I have two now and I have all of the weapon proficiencies because I learned them forever ago. I could understand having one floating around, it could be used as an RP prop but ending up with more than one and them having no value is a bit meh.

    The gold stockings seem to be one to two non-candycane (i.e. artefact) rewards from the same tier of stocking that they were upgraded from. Definitely not less than the regular stockings?
    Huh. Neat.

    They're not less, but they are more in line with last year's stocking pulls from whatever newspost details those. Which is what I think happened. I could be wrong and no one's said anything about it, but I really wanted extra candycanes...

    You open a fancy platinum stocking and find a globe of shifting continents, an elegant diamond vial,

    The two halves of the globe split open to reveal 30 credits!
    You have been awarded with a talisman cache!
    As the two halves fade away, you realise that you've also been gifted with 1980 gold sovereigns, a
    group of 31 ginseng roots, a group of 10 steel bars, and an oaken vial!
    The gold is whisked directly into your bank account in Eleusis, giving you a new balance of 336980
    gold.

    Yeah this is what is really annoying me about this.

    These stockings are, supposed to, be "double the worth" what a normal stocking it (with chances at bigger prizes).  From the looks of it, the extravagant bonus has been pretty 'meh' with the normal stockings giving decent-ish...

    I was under the assumption that, whenever it said DOUBLE, you'd get double candy canes too (which is what helps make it 2x)... not... 2 chances at prizes with no canes, as compared to 1 w/ 90+ canes.
