    Doesn't matter what the payout rate is**, it is still considered gambling.


    ** You do know payout rates varies from game to game and even casino to casino right?

    Yall don't know what gambling is, apparently.

    Gambling is paying for a chance to win something. Casinos are gambling. Slot machines are gambling.

    Kuku, you're GUARANTEED to win something whenever you open a chest. Could be a Burden. Could be a token. Could be ANOTHER GODDAMMNED BONKERS. Most likely, it's a few coin.

    That's not gambling. That's paying for a grab-bag.

    You don't know what gambling is. It's a bet on an uncertain outcome. Technically if you gamble 500 coins to open the chest and win one, you didn't "win a coin", you lost 499. That's why it's gambling.

    You're welcome.

    ... They nerfed Kukuru the first week of 5.4. How about you stop crying about your bad luck and start saving your coins for burdens and getting tokens from trash like everyone else?

    I mean, do you really think they actually nerfed it again? No, they didn't. You're just having a bad luck streak, which pretty much everyone who has ever played WoW is used to by now.

    actually i got 2 burdens within 10k coins from him before Tuesday. I know He was nerfed the first day of 5.4.. , but now hes been nerfed again. Since tuesday his drops seem more .. garbage then before.. now its just coins from him and the odd token that you never want for a different class that you never play (*cough hunter token*)

    overall ive spent probably close to 50k or 100 keys on him since tuesday, mostly getting coins and almost no tokens, how is it a bad luck streak when your spending over 100 keys on an npc? thats a decent sized sample imo.

    As many said gambling isn't winning 80% of the time. It's not like you go into a casino knowing you'll win 80% of the time.

    With that said the chests are still useful to most. You can buy 1 guaranteed Burden or use 100 keys and hope for a burden, along with timeless gear you can vendor, more coins to increase chances and a pet for those interested. My only complaint is I wish the pet was cageable like how the revered one is for Shaohao. I've gotten two so far and I know I'll get a third soon and would be nice to give them to friends once they come back.

    Yes, it's a bad streak and happens. I put in over 150 kills on bosses that could drop a 2H from ToT/SoO and used bonus coins multiple times so that was about 300 chances roughly (probably more) and never saw one until this past weekend. According to that 300 should be a better sample size and should've seen it sooner, but it's just a bad luck streak and happens.

    Because the fair win amount for 100 keys is 5(?) tokens, or 1 burden, assuming we don't even count the coins you win back as I tend to notice you get 50-70% of your coins back on average. This means overall you're looking at nearly 200 keys per burden / 5 tokens to match just buying at the vendor if it's taken into account.
