Arcane Box

2013 and TQ still believes a metscroll is worth 130 CPs.

the funny thing is, if they're already at 'incredibly low prices', why would they provide a further discount.

We all know its a scam - but I will try it anyway... lol.

My view is that the 1k box is about 700cps.

2x +3 stones = 140cps
20mil silver = 215 cps
perm stone = 350cps
Praying stone = 0cps, haha

My server is kinda expensive though.

you mean that I have the possibilities to not pay 5x the actual price!? What a deal! sign me up for 300.

2013, TQ still doesn't comprehend sarcasm. Nor do they care.

On freedom we have this worth for 1k boxes:

perm stone: 300-320
20mil: 400 (yea our dbs are worth 11mil Max)
2x +3 stone: 130-140
praying stone: 500k silver Max.

so we have a worth of roughly 800 cps.

i'm curious about the discount chances when giving 10 cps to the npc, if 55% and 75% occur often, then These boxes really are a deal!
any hardcore bulker around who would be opening tons of boxes with the extra discounts and noting how often the High discounts happen?

I just tried it.

1cp discount.

On the 25th try, i got 50% off So profit for me. (525cps for the box)

I did another 100 tries, and didn't get it again. Means in total I paid 625cps.

Not too bad. I'll sell the +3 stones and maybe buy a db. Means I got a perm stone for ~270cps.

edit: Should have stopped after the 25 but I wanted to test the rates. If it was good, I would have kept going.

Pretty much, the 1cp discount is the best way to go. At ~700cps market price, that gives you roughly 200 tries before you start making a loss (as long as you get the 50% discount).

At 10cps, you only have 20 tries, which I doubt you'll get.

I remember back in my first week in CO, when I tried to sell a met for 10 cps, because it was cheaper than in Mall.
