    I think you should get at least 4 pennon pieces every 100 caches...if the rate is about 5%, but I have no idea. If the rate is less than 5% I think it's a terrible design, probably close to scam, so 5% should be a safe estimate... just my opinion tho.

    It would only be a scam if the pieces had a 0% drop rate (i.e. it's impossible to actually get any pieces for it).

    10 stockings, 263 total credits, but that's because I got 6 bound credits per cane through talisman shenanigans. At 5 per cane, I made 231 worth of stuff. Not bad, better than I would through normal purchases, but not as good as I was hoping. I'll probably buy another 10 at some point, though.

    But seriously, I know it's an insane deal, which is why I'm probably going to buy another 10 (even if I shouldn't). Unreasonable expectations from reading other posts, I guess.

    Do you already have vials/pipes? If not you shouldn't redeem them IMO. If you ever stop playing you'll love coming back and not needing to get much in terms of supplies. If you have arti armour/weapons, then you can just jump right back into it straight away.
    Got my 3 pipes from free spins of the wheel, 2 vials from paid spins. Another 3 vials from stockings so far. 7 more to go! At least for curative-related vials... Won't be getting venom ones done anytime soon :(

    I got impatient waiting to see the bonus stocking and opened the rest of my stockings. This includes what I posted before:

    drinking horn
    2 vial
    cigar box
    brooch
    2 mayan crowns
    2 or 3 caches
    pixie boots
    ~200 candy canes

    1739 credit value if you assume the canes are worth 5cr each (I turned them all into caches). I didn't do so hot on the first two group of caches I bought, but got some amazing ones on the third round:

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.
    You have been awarded with The tiger for a grievous keyring talisman piece!
    You have been awarded with The bezel for a ring of finality talisman piece!

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.

    You have been awarded with The marks for a ring of finality talisman piece!

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.
    You have been awarded with The slate for a grievous keyring talisman piece!
    You have been awarded with The leather for revelation's guise talisman piece!

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.
    You have been awarded with The tip of a subjectioner's spigot talisman piece!
    You have been awarded with The lid for a canopic jar talisman piece!

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.
    You have been awarded with The teardrop for pedigree's jewel talisman piece!

    You have been awarded with The head of a goblin talisman piece!

    As you open an interlocked cache a bright light shines from within.
    You have been awarded with The string for a taper of eternity talisman piece!

    So if I back out the canes and add in just the redeem value of the talisman pieces, I came out at around 1900 credits, or over 500% bonus. I feel like I fucked up some math in there somewhere, but the "bonus" stocking being worth 833 credits itself kinda skews things.

    "Not bad"? Valuing caches at 30 credits (as the admins implicitly have), you spent 4,020 credits to get an item the administration valued at 1,400 credits. I'm not sure how much of that you'll make back from trade-ins on completed items.

    There are people opening 85 caches and didn't get a single pennon . Which is why I think mine isn't bad .I was worried I couldn't complete the pennon... It was a whew at that last mile there... That said, I agree the odds are badly skewed, frankly, honestly. But this happens to all sets, sadly.

    Second batch of 5 gave me 17 candycanes, brooch of tempest, and another Mayan crown.  450+ credits at arties redeem value, candycanes for 5 unbound, and crowns for 35 each.
