Cory spoiled these sleeves on Twitter (https://twitter.com/coryhudsonjones/status/536310260978286592) yesterday...

Is that a sign, that chest-opening will be in game with Set 2 / Arena?
Or do we already have info on that and I just missed it?

Not yet. The plan is for it to arrive with Arena.

Sleeve looking great but don't see why there's a key in it...besides the possible distant reference that it was earned from a chest, that requires a key to open?

Cory's tweet (https://twitter.com/coryhudsonjones/status/536310260978286592) suggests that the key is part of a theme, so I imagine we can expect more keys.

The key has a diamond handle. Will this be a common chest reward (common chest is white)? Pentachills linked a primal chest, so that is another possibility.

Not sure "requires a key" is the best way to put it (it's not like you need to obtain anything else to open the chest), but it's definitely a nod to the fact that the sleeves come from a chest. :)

The key is Set-specific rather than rarity-specific.

I actually think it's cool when it's not clear where the sleeve is from - one of the best 'ice-breakers' in matches to get people talking...but that's just me.

now don't get me wrong i love the sleeves but having a reward in a legendary chest that isn't tradable seems awkward. i guess this is just me wanting sleeves to be tradable especially if they are coming in chest rewards. those sleeves could be worth a nice amount of plat

Since we have only 5 shards in Hex does it mean that HexEnt will never make more than 5 sets or that we will get one new type of shard for each set after the fifth ?:p

There will be more than enough other things inside the chests (and exclusive to them!) besides the sleeves to potentially fetch a king's ransom in plat. The sleeves will continue to be account bound; if you want them, you have to do the legwork.

Probably not, since they've already agreed that is a problem with the Wheels and are going to fix it. They'll probably use the same loot code for chests so if it would have given dupe sleeves, it gives something else instead.

I really hope this is the case, and will probably wait for confirmation once chests are live before I bother opening them.

This brings up a question I had. Did we ever get confirmation on whether chests were per block or per set (will Set 2 have the same or different chests than Set 1)? And the same for the Wheels of Fate spinning the chests, if they are different chests... different WoF?

Taken from "HexPrimal" website:


Chests

We will be able to open Chests with the launch of Arena (December 2014).
The different levels of rarities have unique items you can only get from that level of chest.
Each Set gets a new set of Chests with new rewards.
The Chests have a small cosmetic difference between Sets and a complete change in appearance between Blocks.

The reason why no one else spoiled it is because no one else probably saw it besides PentaChills and those that follow him and Cory. Unless Cory was to put a period in front (.@PentaChills) or something else, that tweet was only meant to be seen by PentaChills and followers of both.

Thanks for bringing it here to the forums, Colin.

They drop more loot, have higher chance at better (i define better as legendary or rare rarities for items) loot and have cosmetic items exclusive to them.

For example:

If you wanted to collect a specific piece of common equipment, you would want to open common chests. They are the only ones that drop common equipment. You still have a very small chance to open a legendary equipment out of a common chest, but you're better off opening a legendary chest or a primal chest, because your chances go way up AND legendary chests drop 2 items from them (primal chests drop 3 items from them).

If you wanted to get the above sleeves, I would encourage you to open primal chests. You can probably catch them out of a legendary chest, but it's a pretty small chance.

Before everyone grabs their pitchforks: Having some items drop from high-tier chests encourages gold use in the Wheels of Fate. That's a good thing. It's what keeps gold valuable in the economy. Besides, whenever possible we tired to use cosmetic items as gold sinks, by making them exclusive to higher rarity chests.

100% supportive of better items (not just more items) dropping out of better chests. Given the goal of chests this is needed. I doubt many players that understand the purpose of chests would fault you guys for this. I love your implementation of this!

ossuary
11-24-2014, 05:36 PM
No, that's perfect implementation in my opinion. I like the idea that you CAN get good stuff out of lower level chests, but mostly you get the "yard trash." What I like even more is that higher level chests don't drop the common stuff at all - that's really rewarding you for spending the money to upgrade, so you don't get flooded with (for example) 600 AA windbourne acolytes. ;)

Maybe that's just with equipment, but I like the idea that higher chests won't ever drop you common loot.

Not sure if the WOF is being generous at the moment or if I was just lucky.

Rolled all my remaining rare chests (cost about 250k gold), got 7 or 8 upgrade to legendary and 5 upgrade to primal. Also got 2 crappy rares, 2 Ashahsa and yet another windborn acolyte.

Used my remaining gold on 3 Legendary spins and got another primal upgrade.

Went from 6 primals to 12 in a matter of 350k gold. Now just need to spin those 58 Legendary chests.

Well there's a surprise. Will set one chest rolls still get you set 1 wheel of fate rewards? Or are they well and truly gone? If they're gone completely I need to get rolling. Still missing the wrathwood sleeves.

Think, Gwaer! ;-)

They can't do that. We still have what, 1 to 2% of the total future Hex population in the game now, maybe even less. If they cut off that many players from potential rewards, that would keep possibly paying customers away. It simply doesn't make sense. I'd wager at least as long as you can buy Set 1 boosters, you'll be able to spin them.

I'd wager you'll always be able to spin them - makes unopened Set 1 boosters so much more valuable in the long run. Valuable boosters = good for CZE!

Gwaer
11-25-2014, 01:31 AM
I disagree. The inability to get the first set of other tcgs doesn't push people away. The only things unobtainable after it goes away are sleeves. Everything else you can get on the AH or maybe in dungeons on the case of equipment. I don't doubt that you can spin them. Only if they will give set one WOF rewards. If they always give set 1 rewards on the wheels that means unopened set one chest could go for a lot down the line.

AstaSyneri

I disagree. The inability to get the first set of other tcgs doesn't push people away.

Then we agree to disagree ;-). But I am sure CZE will have thought long and hard about that and I'd expect the WoF to stay around (it's the major gold sink after all) until Block 1 closes, maybe +4 weeks or so.

We already have the Kickstarter goodies that are unavailable to most players, there is no reason to unnecessarily limit stuff more than that.

Chark
11-25-2014, 01:43 AM
Shards of Fate chests will trigger Shards of Fate WoF rewards. Shattered Destiny chests will trigger Shattered Destiny rewards on the WoF. As long as you have set 1 chests, you'll be able to spin for set 1 rewards.

Some fun facts:


Yall spun about 34% of all common set one chests so far. There are 66% left to spin. I would have thought the number would be higher...
Primal and Legendary Chests make up about 6% of all of the chests.
Legendary Chests are mostly sitting around with paid spins. About 93% of them. No surprise there: it's hard to throw away 30,000 gold on faith that Primal Chests will be good.
Primal Chests are almost all spun: about 95%. Also no surprise there: spining the wheels for free is fun! Plus most of these are double upgrades from Rare chest with no possibility of a spin again.
Free-spin chests represent only 0.01% of total chests. Talk about lack of self control...

Proposed system sounds pretty much perfect. Each chest has set specific wof rewards, better chests give you better items (and more of them) and higher tier chests don't give you lower tier items, and the most expensive items are the sought after cosmetic upgrades, guarantee to be a good gold sink.

This is probably something like duplicate sleeves that should be removed. Its not a big deal, but there is no point rolling things you can not receive.

Actually, it would be cool and almost practical if rolling upgrades on Primal chests gave out no-spin common chests. "Here's a free piece of random cheap loot for your troubles." Too much trouble, though. Agreed that this should ultimately fall under the sleeve auto-re-spin solution.

Huzzah for set 2 WoF items; must grab more sets of mystery PvE cards and their associated equipment!

I'd best see a] how much gold I have after spinning all the set 2 chests I can buy and b] if they are fixing the sleeve problem this update, before revisiting set 1 spins for loot/sleeves.

I do like cosmetic items (sleeves & AA), but I love acquiring functional items more - so great news for me that the higher chest tiers are more cosmetic in nature. Thanks Crypto. :D

So far I have kept my 2 AA Princess Victoria (because I associate that as the 'true' appearance of her), bought 2 AA Replicator's Gambit for a full set as my Kickstarter keepsake and I am eyeing up 4 AA Darkspire Punishers as a set 2 launch keepsake (and to support the participation AA principle which I am 100% in favor of) - but every other marketable AA that has come my way I have ended up turning into cold hard platinum.

Early prediction: Her Majesty, Queen Grace as the rare WoF AA card for set 2!
I like the stylish painterly quality to her card, but methinks a more conventional image of her might be lined up to stand alongside His Majesty and Princess Victoria...

The rarest cosmetic items are exclusive to the highest level chests, but that doesn't mean all the rest of the stuff from chests will be easily attainable from common and uncommon chests... there are still rare mercs, PVE cards, PVP AAs, and legendary equipment to worry about! You're definitely going to want higher level chests for more than just the sleeves. :)

True, it's POSSIBLE for the good stuff to drop out of a common chest, but don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen. You're far better off upgrading and eliminating the junk items from the loot table (and getting more items per chest) than you are opening hundreds of common chests and praying for a lucky strike.
