    I've gone easy this time around on globes, cause I don't like the lantern addition.
    With my horrid bad luck, I'd get 50 lanterns, 20 wooden parts and 25  Artefact upgrade credits/Artefact discount vouchers, and a bunch of tradeskill slots/trait resets.

    Edit: Forgot to say CAUSE THIS GAME HATES ME!!

    Lanterns don't take the place of other prizes, they are awarded in addition to whatever prize you would normally get from that globe. @Vhaith

    You also cannot get trait resets if you already have one, nor can you get tradeskill slots if you're capped. If this is happening, please BUG it right away!

    You can get up to 3 tradeskill slots, and if you've used neither your reincarnation or trait reset, you won't get those.

    I think the most disappointing thing is that some sips of lucky comes with caches. Others do not.

    Otherwise, I'm content with this.

    Can we have sips other than lucky?

    Please no, let's not give more readily-available ways to increase stats. Rare minerals are fine, but making the strength elixir etc so widely available would suck. Use your crowns if you want them. Even if they were available at like 1/10th the chance lucky is, it would still quickly become flooded.

    I'd be happy if there was a check so it would stop giving out lucky after a certain point...

    Either stop handing out sips of lucky, giving them a promo tradein value, or just.. Idk. Give them as a bonus with a cache or crown.

    I've got over 200 sips from these globes alone. Same with last time. I'd actually prefer 11cr over lucky, because at least one of these have a direct CR value. :(

    I thought lucky was always supposed to come with something else, hmm.

    Opened mine - the numbers for credits and credits are estimations, I forgot to look exactly where I was before I started opening.

    100 total.

    33 caches (25cr value because players are idiots and don't understand that going from guaranteed 2 pieces per cache to 1 piece was a massive nerf and still think they are worth 35cr+)
    13-15 sleeves (35cr each cause they all opened for common cards)
    39 lanterns (0cr, Mhaldor's version of the credit/xp/crit item)
    4 Crowns (35cr)
    200 Upgrade Credits
    600 Credits
    6 discount vouchers (25cr)
    2 quivers (67cr)
    6 boxes of wooden parts (5cr)
    1 band of Tenacity (567cr, level 2 endurance regen)
    33 Humgii Tickets (3cr)
    5 vials of Lucky (0cr)
    6 freatureless ice figurines (0cr)
    1 bloodstained shard (25cr, 1 out of 100 globes? Incredibly unlucky on this one, but I didn't need them so this made me happy)

    Total is just over 3,200. Paid 1500 unbound credits and ~1650 bound credits for them, for a net profit of...basically nothing.

    To most people this would be a pretty good run. It is average for me, but unfortunately I got a lot of things that are just straight redeem, or don't have value to me.

    I missed winning 3 special prizes by less than 1 second and said "fuck it" and opened the rest of the globes last night.

    Also, no need to go "your values are way off" because things are worth different to me than you. I am happy with the trade I did.

    So without getting too complicated versus completed value vs. partial value, and which pieces are or aren't in demand, that is about ~1550 redeem/tradein. Will get more for the Maya piece, so that is nice!

    I pulled a Band of Tenacity from my third globe! I'm never that lucky.
    And there's a pleasure in hiding from the sun.
    No, I was never one for pretty weather.
