Key from Chest of Black Lion Goods.

Anyone ever received Black Lion Chest Key from login rewards?

I opened approximately 200-250 chests since 2015 (like almost everyone in game) -- not many to properly calculate probability of getting one, especially if you get no Keys at all.
I got many Salvage Kits - 300 gems, Revive Orbs - 250 gems, but not a single Key which is 125 gems. (Sure -- Kits and Orbs may be bought for 2-3 Statuettes, and I have no idea why to buy them from Gem Store, but still...)

I'm not greedy or "offended", just curious about statistics.

    I got a few, but haven't kept track of how often or how many.

    It has happened once or twice in 7 yrs.

  • Nice, thanks. So it's just a matter of luck...

    I know I got one on my second account, which I remember because of the flash of excitement followed by disappointment that it's the wrong account and anything I was likely to get was account bound. But then I didn't get anything special from the chest anyway.

    I'm sure I've gotten at least one on my main account too, but I can't remember when or how many in total. But it wouldn't surprise me if the drop rate is skewed towards less popular items and the keys are the least likely to drop, because they're the most likely to be bought.

    3 times that I can think of: once from a daily login, and twice from BL goods chests given as rewards from fractal chests.

    It's very rare.. out of my 8 accounts.. it's probably happened less than ~10? times, out of thousands of boxes.
