230 gem chest giving common items?

Postby Sybil (106157093) » Thu Dec 06, 2018 5:51 pm

So they say the 230 gem chest is supposed to give legendary items, but when I opened it I got the common pair of shoes. I could have opened 4 common items for that price.

IDK whats going on.. My sister got a HH that she doesnt know what it is, since she didnt edit to look, but it was from 2017. Called it a 'rare' item. I hope these 250 gem boxes live up to their description as 'new items' and not disappoint. :?:

230 chests are only to ensure that you get EDE2018 items. It doesn't exclusively give legendary items. It only ensures that you will get an EDE item if you open it.

I think the only guarantee is that it gives "new" items. I hadn't considered that they might set it to give us the 50 gem new stuff first. Glorious...... :nerd:

Where did you see that the Magic Chest is supposed to give only legendary items? Do not get me wrong, I think that the Common items should not be included in them, but I think it pretty clearly says that it contains 1 Unique New Item. That includes Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary items.

Hi Sybil. There's nothing that says the 230 Magic gem chests only give Legendary items. I'm curious as to where you heard that. There have been MANY accounts explaining how that chest works, and the others who posted in here are correct that the only guarantee is that you will get a brand new EDE2018 item (as opposed to some filler item from the store). Sadly, there is one "common" brand new item found in the 50 gem chest, so some people -- MYSELF INCLUDED -- ended up with that item from the 230 Magic gem chest. If you look at the thread that lists the Tier 1 prizes for this gem event, you will see which ones are labeled new & will be found in that Magic chest. OR you could gamble and choose a 50 gem or 150 gem chest, but the odds of getting a new item are much lower.

I am not sure why you feel ripped off. You paid more to ENSURE you would only get a brand new item. The Magic chest does not have new items that are only found in that chest. It clearly says that the Magic chest gives new EDE2018 items, regardless of what chest or tier they normally come from. How would you feel if you got the 150 gem chest & got something that is in the store & is a filler item?

I am baffled why people are mad at this new 230 gem Magic chest. I admit I was unhappy that I received the lowest price item (the common elf shoes), but I knew there was a risk. I tried my best to post my results so that others wouldn't make that same mistake.

People complained that there getting used items in the gem boxes and BVG made it possible for us to get new items VIA the 230 gem this is just the1st tier and things will improve like AH prices might drop since there more chances of the items showing up. So the box you have opened will only give new items only not ones still in store.

I got a stupid USELESS pair of elf slippers and we work a long time to earn those gems!

Seriously I posted a thread on Facebook and people got the elf shoes in the 50 gem chest, the 150 chest and the 230 "magic" chest. This just seems so unfair to me. BVG needs to look out for us. I have played since 09 and spent more money in the game than I should but, this type thing could make me quit if it keeps up.

No, these elf shoes are brand new EDE2018. They may resemble other elf shoes, but these are NEW to this gem event & are not available anywhere else.

If people go look at the database type in EDE2018 there are some really good items that you will win in near future of this gem event with that new chest, New elf shoes will also match with the EDE2018 elf hat

Overall the cost of participating in these events (with .8 boost ) is too high to gamble away 230 gems on a 50 gem item that could be bought for under 100k in AH. I will stick with the 150 boxes :nerd:

its the same thing that would have been in the 150 chest why do you not get how people could feel a little taken advantage of... I see nothing that says what the magic chests give... its ok, i will only open 150 chest now that I know and I will buy gems so I can open all the 150 chests at a 150 chest price not a 230 gem chest price... ok they got me for 2 days, now I know and will not fall for it again. I don't mind the filler items most of them are decent too, and if I have already they seem to sell well in Auction House...

The magic chest was the result of the criticism from players that they weren't happy with not getting the "new" items out of the chests. The magic chest will only ensure that you do not get in store items, rather the new items released for the gem events that are often required for the gem bonus.
