    Timeless Isle Stealth Kukuru nerf?

    What the hell did they do to this guy? Before tues you could get burdens and tokens and everything from him. Now its like a 99% chance to get coins. Ive used +40 keys in one go and gotten only 1 token. Ever since the reset this guy has been stealth nerfed. Hes useless. Anyone else have the same bad luck?

    it wasn't stealth, it was in the hotfixes notes.

    that said 40 keys is 20000 coins, still under half the cost of a burden at 50k from the vendor, you're ahead of the game.

    It wasn't gambling before. You don't win 80% of the time when gambling.

    Pretty worthless I'd say. The moment I did not need any more burdens for one of my characters I went and destroyed around 60k coins on keys. Numerous tokens of course, but not a single burden. I must say my prime goal were the tokens, so I can disenchant them, but still.

    I know sample size is ludicrously small, take it for what it is.

    Yeah, but a gamble that paid off 80% of the time. The whole point of gambling usually is that the odds are below cost, so <50%. Sure numbers are made up but most people saw a burden in <10k spend whereas they cost 50k. That's just ridiculous.

    And since he has "only" spent 20K, he still has 30K left until the vendor would have been a better deal. So technically, he is still ahead.

    I've lost everytime and spent about 20k there (previous weeks), but I don't know a single other guildie who didn't get a burden in <10k, out of about 30-40. Anecdotal but between near a million coins it's not completely ignorable.

    Actually, most casino slot games have a 75% to 99% win percentage. I'd say Kukuru falls within that range for coins. Plus, when I spend all my coins and get nothing in return I get that awful feeling in my stomach, just like I do in Vegas.

    I wouldn't use Kukuru unless I was trying for Bonkers though.

    This is just typical Blizzard modus operandi, to many players having fun doing a certain thing it will get taken away.

    Nothing has been taken away, kukuru is still there and rewards are still there.

    my screens filled with 30+ messages for winning 50-450 coins and not a single token. scratch that on #41.. some garbage hunter token for my lvl 85 hunter that i'd never lvl. i got this awful feeling in my stomach like i was robbed/scammed/screwed over..

    all i wanted was a goddam timeless signet so i could get a 535 ring. its taken almost 4 hours to accomplish that now.
    the odds used to be around 1:8 or 1:10 of getting a token... now its like 1:50.. gg.

    honestly, whos gonna farm up 50,000 coins for a single burden? the only reason people went to kukuru in the first place is because attempting to gain 50k is ridiculously overpriced. burdens should be around 15-20k each if you wanted something reasonable.

    Just spent 22000 coins yesterday on him. (and spent the coins I got back from the chests)

    -2 Burdens
    -8 Armor or trinket/ring/neck tokens
    -2 Bonkers

    Seems fine to me

    I am. It's a guarantee. My first toon spent 60K before getting a bonkers, I got probably 35 tokens but no burdens. I said fuck it at that point. That toon does have 3 burdens on him wasting space. Sure, I can upgrade stuff but that an enchanting it and transmogging... it's a bother.
