    This area further reinforces their casino-approach to this expansion.

    I wonder if Blizzard really takes into account the amount of "Wow! Cool! Holy crap! moments for a tiny TINY fraction of the playerbase vs the sheer level of salt generated by everyone else who doesn't get blessed by RNG? Would people still be as salty if these kinds of reward were behind highly skill-based achievements like the artifact challenges instead of some random gambling crap?

    If you have to attack a person instead of what they're saying, then you've already lost the argument.

    that's because the spawn rate was broken, that was what you were referring to as being hotfixed. But there are 2 different chests as I mentioned, hidden which are always up regardless of mage tower and veiled which is replaces hidden when mage tower is up, although I never really noticed much of a difference in rewards.

    I've opened dozens of the caches now. I've never once gotten anything other than Nethershards, Resources and Gold. No toys or items or what-have-you.
    I've also never broken even on the cost of opening one... literally not a single chest has had more than 1,000 Shards in it.

    And I've had no less than THREE chests with 1 single, solitary, pathetic little Nethershard.

    This entire patch has just been one colossal disappointment after another.

    Previous chest I opened, contained a single nethershard, 1.

    The one I opened today, contained 100.001 nethershards.

    I spent all of them on tokens and got exactly 0 legendaries and 4 procs above the default 880.


    All in all, I'm okay with it. I rarely buy keys anyway, just like I rarely didn't do in in the MoP version. It's fun now and then, but not something I'll actively farm to get more attempts for.

    That's a really fuckin good question, but considering how entire of expac looks i guess they don't.

    If you got no more than 1000 shards in a chest then you actually have broken even (with a gain) sometimes. Since there is a daily every 3 days (similar to Withered Training) where you buy a key for 100 shards.

    TLDR some people are lucky.

    Neat!

    Casinos basically work off of this concept; drawing in people by awarding a big payout every once in a while, their actual enjoyment be damned, with the expectation that it will pay dividends later. There is a never ending stream of people willing to ruin their lives at the incredible tiny chance of getting a payout at casinos so ofc that concept would work on something far less malevolent like an in-game currency for a monthly subscription game.
