Hello everyone! Today I open 300 VIP chests, which is quite possibly the most VIP chests ever opened at one time. If you have done more or a similar amount feel free to tell everyone how high in the top 1% you are, lol.
All gems were obtained without spending any cash through guild tasks and other trickle means within the game for gems.
Gem chests would be better if all your ultra rares aren’t mythic yet. Gems chests give on average 3x more resources than a VIP chest. While the gem chests will have slightly lower rarity overall, 250 gem chests has about the same mythic chance as 50 VIP chests. VIP chest of course has a higher chance to get mythic, but at a 1:5 ratio with how many more gem chests you can get it ends up putting them at around the same or with gem chests with a GREATER chance for mythic. The main reason I always do VIP chests around the time of mythic releases is because I need the arcanes to actually trait them immediately. VIP chests are much better at getting arcanes than gem chests.
Yeah, it is hard to tell gem chest mythic drop rate vs VIP since both have a small drop rate and there is very little data out there that can be pulled from. In theory, gem chests should be better to get a mythic. The VIP mythic drop rate would need to be at least 5x a gem chest for them to be equal.
Not sure, since in gem chests there is also ultra rares which that makes it a lot of additional troops one can get. As well as Runic stones. And that probably minimize the % of Mythic drop quite a bit. At least I got one, and cannot complain. However I have a good history when it comes to VIP chests, I got 2 Famines out of 20 VIP chest in the previous Mythic release.
