# Is it really a treasure gnome weekend?

I do not know about you folks but i have played a lot this weekend and i have seen hardly any treasure gnomes.

Yes, the rate of gnome appearances has been higher. Iâ€™ve noticed an uptick of pet rescues triggered by my guild, and Iâ€™ve seen quite a few treasure gnomes myself.

Threads that ask, â€śIs the vault event broken? Should I be seeing more gnomes?â€ť appear more frequently than treasure gnomes, even during a Vault event.

I think the rate goes up from 3% to 6%. Iâ€™m bad at probability apparently, but it doesnâ€™t really mean youâ€™re going to see 6 if you play 100 matches. It means something more like, â€śIf you played 1,000,000 matches, youâ€™d see between 57,000 and 63,000.â€ť When you narrow it down to reasonable numbers like 100, it becomes â€śyou might see between 4 and 8â€ť. Seeing as, previously, that used to be â€śbetween 1 and 4â€ť, it doesnâ€™t feel like thereâ€™s been a big increase even if you see the 8, because 8 gnomes out of 100 matches is still rare. In fact, seeing 6/100 instead of 3/100 is only 3 more gnomes than you would have seen! It doesnâ€™t â€śfeelâ€ť like a bonus.

Didnâ€™t even realize it was a Treasure Gnome weekend until I saw this topic. Since Friday Iâ€™ve run a couple hundred PVP and Explore runs and ended up with a grand total of, drumroll please, 1 Treasure Gnome (with a 100 Soul reward naturally). Yes, I know, RNG blah blah blah one playerâ€™s experience blah blah blahâ€¦

As noted above, doubling the frequency of a low percentage event is most likely unperceivable. The problem is when you have a special event but no one can tell if the event is happening more frequently without doing a statistical analysis, then the event is a FAILURE. Combine that with an unbelievably stingy reward pool and you end up irritating far more players than making happy ones.

Final thought - itâ€™s supposed to be a Treasure Gnome, not a Spare Change Gnome!

When Iâ€™d started playing this game 6 months ago, Iâ€™d received a Vault key back then t he first month, won the vault battle and another key (and that subsequent battle too), and received no vault keys since. I have seen and killed a lot of gnomes, but got no keys. I never received any of those gnomes as troops either.

I then played this morning, and got two vault keys, 10 minutes apart! Needless to say, I was actually shocked. So shocked that I took screengrabs of it.
Iâ€™d noticed more gnomes this weekend, but didnâ€™t expect to get any keys at all, considering the drop rate for those.

I may hold onto those two keys I have for a while just to look at them in my inventory (was sick of the zero number), and to remember what they even look like.

I agree, Iâ€™d like to see the Gnomes so often we â€śKnowâ€ť itâ€™s a Gnome Weekend! Just a thoughtâ€¦

For me it goes in spurts. First day, 1 Gnome in about 45 matches. Last night 5 gnomes in 8 matches. 1 even dropped a Vault Key.

Yes, there was a gnome event. I was hoping to get 100-200 diamonds but fell woefully short (the rewards seem worse than previous events - less gem keys, less event keys, less diamonds, etc)â€¦

I did about 800 explore battles and got 107 treasure gnomes (at least 26 of them were soul gnomes) and 9 vault keys. I, however, did not get enough traitstones doing so to fully trait my delve troops (one more to go).

Was definitely a gnome weekend. New soul gnome was running rampant. Was farming arcanes and gained 100k souls without a soul generator. All while only getting enough arcanes to trait one legendary and one mythic. Those soul gnomes sure love to drop 5000 souls. Also got a regular treasure gnome to drop 50k gold once. Got about 5 vault keys.

I received more souls than normal (quite a few 5K and 2K drops), but only 3 Vault keys overall. I guess I should be grateful for those keys.
