Dev Hints at Content Changes to Lockboxes

The devs are currently in the process of coming back from the holidays and getting things started in 2018. Therefore official posts are still few and far between, but the first one already was quite interesting. In a topic in which players proposed bringing back Genie’s Gifts and Profession Packs in lockboxes, developer Miasmat jumped in and told them to “stay tuned”.

[su_quote]Well, the next lockbox is all finished up and it is past the time we’d make significant changes to the contents. But that said, you should both stay tuned ;).[/su_quote]

While it might seem that it’s unlikely to happen for the next lockbox, the wink at the end could hint at changes rather sooner than later. Whether that’s just adding the mentioned packs back into lockboxes or a bigger overhaul to the content structure remains to be seen. But it’s definitely an indication that there’s something brewing behind the scenes.

If the structure of lockboxes is going to be changed, what would you like to see? What are contents you’d like to be brought back? Share your thoughts in the comments below and visit the corresponding thread on our message board!

    I’d like all the Booby Prizes such as worthless transmutes to be removed completely, and the minimum drop being something vaguely worth having.

    Remember those lockboxes that dropped a purple box with a Great Fanfare that you had won an Epic Prize? Then you’d open the purple box and it’s some Symbol of the Cult worth 1 AD that did absolutely nothing but create a non-damaging image of a rock, or wind, or a flame etc. Worthless.

    I would personally love to see you get no Stronghold packs if you are not in a guild, and no more [admin] spam, that would be satisfactory to me!

    If they bring back Profession stuff it would be interesting if they contained Masterwork pertinent stuff. As well, since they continue to contain Tarmalane Bars it’s high time for a T Bar store rework

    I can see a new Genies Gift including newer Campaign Currencies or the main prize not being a mount but a different legendary reward like the Metallic Dragonborn token (probably not an artifact). Doubt % change though or the fact that most drops are generic.

    I would personally be ok with more bound items, as long as random contents are adapted to the pg’s IL. As someone said, and epic item sometimes is not so epic for a 15 – 16 – 17k player.
