The elf shoes are new, not in stores. It only showed up as ''common'' because it is only a 50 gem chest (and opened more commonly than a higher level chest)

In reality, these are still brand new items. During shabby chic, the sought after armchair was a 50 gem common item as well...but it ended up selling for lots of coins.



Idk if you read the posts but it wasn't in the 50 gem boxes it was in the 230 gem box, i wouldn't have said a word if it was in the 50 gem box

Well, NO. The elf shoes are brand NEW. They are the only new item in the 50 gem chest. THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME. All the 230 gem Magic chest guarantees is that you will get a NEW item exclusive to this gem theme, and not one of the "filler" in-store items. Other people gambled and got 150 gem chest new items. IDK if it's random, or if the Magic chest just picks the first available new item, which in our case, was from the 50 gem chest. Even tho it said "common," that only referred to the 50 gem chest name. If you were to pay the 230 gem price again, it would pull a higher quality 150 gem chest NEW item.

Ok, I see now... Still! :dizzy: :sad:

Yeah, it's just luck of the draw, & as Autumn Glory said, the house always wins. Still a gamble, but at least the pot of items are only the new EDE2018 ones. :)

I feel like someone is pushing their luck by raising the cost of the chests.......I feel like I am helping to pay for someone's Christmas bonus or something. BVG..... please don't make us feel like we are bring taken advantage of. Christmas time is hard enough buying gifts for family and friends and for some just paying for their heat to keep their homes warm. I had fun making my Christmas scene and spent some YC, but when I got to the chests, I gagged at the cost of the highest tier!!!!
If the chests keep going up you are going to have alot of angry and frustrated players. Thank you for the nice items in the chests, they were just too overpriced......

And I hope people will take time to vote on the nicest Christmas scenes they see and not just rush through them.... I know how irritating it is to see room after room of whatever.
Merry Christmas Yo's! :)

I hope the gem stuff is all wearables, then I'll never do one again.

Make good stuff
Put it in the stores
Price it fairly

It isn't complicated, yet they continue to mess it up. *sigh*

This Tier seems to be all wearables for new items which is totally unappealing to me. I worry that the dress up will require the new items and that is why this tier looks like this. Can not believe they allowed a 50 gem COMMON item in a 230 gem UNIQUE chest...totally unacceptable.

i don't wear elf shoes so if it's a pig face or elf shoes i don't now who comes up with this stuff. Like not even most of the younger crowd be wearing these hideous mask and things. SO over masks onsies and immature things. Can we just get some reg clothes from this time? Maybe a nice long winter coat, earmuffs, nice pants and boots something modern and not from way back then looking like a tent and worn down in color.

I got elf shoes too but I think they are very cute!
The 230 gems for NEW items is a smart move from BVG! Now I cannot use my formula for 95% success rate for getting NEW items with only 150 gems anymore! Well done, BVG, lol! :haha: :wailing:

Yvw hun, yea i don't usually buy but i wanted to try it out and 50 gems were only 1 yocash so after this ofc i learned my lesson already no matter what the chest say you still get junk in the end and you pay more gems so i do like i usually do i just stay with the 150 gems and not spent a dime. I have so much junk in my inventory it's not fun anymore and no one buys that crap so i just delete it

That's stupid to get a common item for 230 gems. I don't care if it's a new one. Insane! Thanks for the warning! If I want commons I would rather try my luck getting 4 commons for 200 gems than one crappy one for 230!

BVG sucks. Plain and simple. From what ive seen, every player that bought the 230 gem box got elf shoes for the first prize. $2.00 for ******* elf shoes? Way to stick it to the players that purchase gems/yc!!

Those Christmas Elf Shoes seem to be extremly common – quite a few of my buddies managed to get them with the first Wooden Chest they were forced to open before they could proceed to hanhout and challenge.

If I were to get it from the Magic Chest I would be really mad – like flipping tables mad, and I truly feel for those who did get them out of Magic Chests for 230 Gems. I think it would have been better if there was a separate chest for new common items and other one for the other new items. It could even be 130 Gems (marked up the same amount of gems the Magic one is in comparison to the Mega Chest).

The elf shoes come from the 50 gem chest they force you to open to start the event... you have to click on the 50 gem chest at the start to be able to go to the rest ... so to start this all off you must open a 50 gem chest and they do give you the 50 gems and you cant save the 50 gems to open a 150/230 gem chest...

But I got the same d**n thing out of a 230 gem chest my friend got out of a 150 gem chest so how stupid is that... it give the exact same items as the 150 gem chest does... whos grand idea was this??? :eh:

When I opened the 50 gem chest to start, I did NOT get the elf shoes. I got a blue sofa, which is an older filler item in store. You are assuming that everyone gets the same thing every time. I'm sorry you are angry, but the 230 Magic chest gave you exactly what BVG said it would -- a brand new EDE2018 item. There are no items exclusive to the Magic chest itself.

They should be putting items in we can use in the theme we are in. I got the Elf shoes in the 50 gem chest we had to open to get started. Not wasting my cash on those 230 chests since every one I spoke to got junk. A neighbor of mine got some kind of frozen skin and it looks like her face has craters in it. Why do they even make stupid items like this no one wants them. As long as players continue to spend cash on those gems to get all the prizes they will keep putting stupid items in them.

Hi Deb, welcome to the forums. There's another thread that shows exactly what items are in the first tier of the Winter Gem Event. Maybe that will help. I will go find the link for you.

I think so, but probably only from when the daily event pop-up starts. For me, it's 2pm. I do know you can vote for your 5 & then go back in later and vote more, but you won't get more gems than the first 25. Hope that helps.
