So when Epic Vaults were released (and after the customary period needed to extract the ballpark drop rate info from the Company, and the subsequent adjustments), we are roughly at a probability of 1 EVK for every ~10 Vault Key Drops, 1 Vault Key for every ~10 Gnomes (during Gnome Weekend), and 1 Gnome every ~10 explore battles (rounded for simplicity and going from memory, adjust as needed): that means that during a Gnome Weekend, players can expect an average of 1 EVK for every 1000
At ~15 seconds per battle, that’s roughly 4 hours of playtime.
A lucky guildmate decided to open the EVKs he received during this weekend, and upon his disappointment with the rewards he gave the green light to post the SS here, in the hopes that others may adjust their expectations and not lose much sleep over chasing EVKs:
The questions arising:
- Is the Demon Gnome on second slot a permanent fixture, thus locking some (very low value) shard rewards?
- Did things change since release that now allow for 4x troops to drop? Or are we facing the usual QA? (whether common troops should be dropping at all is another matter)
Are there any samples out there of best/worse EVK drops that could support the effort required to obtain one, or the reasonable need to revamp the types/ranges of the rewards found therein?
