Well, I'm like 90-100 chests in and have gotten 6 hair kits, a dye kit, and the Balthazar outfit but no Wild Magic Glider.
I'm starting to feel pretty angry and really stupid.

    @Illconceived Was Na.9781 has a very relevant signature. :D

  • Should be about 1:60 if the same tiered items all have equal values. But I'm not sure that's the case.

    It's call RNG/Gamble. You could've gotten it on your 1st one. Maybe your 10th. Maybe your 10,000th. It's not certain you would ever get it.
    I do sympathize a bit with those that want this glider/back though. Been hearing quite a bit of people trying to get it or wanting it a month or so ago.

    While that and Fallen Balthazar is in the chest though, my keys been piling up.

    And that’s exactly why they do this. Because they get more money with RNG chests than from selling the item directly.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

  • Yet I got a key from doing map completion in Elona, opened one chest and got it straight away! The first chest I'd opened in ages. Just luck I guess.

    So you gambled and lost. There is a solution to this. Don't gamble or deal with losing every now and then.

    If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.

    A few games have a system in which they can choose an unlock after you have thrown enough money at it.
    It's a nice counter balance to get people to keep throwing money because they don't get too frustrated with it.

    They kind of did that with the Black Lion Exclusives Box, a tradeable drop from BLTC that let you choose one of the previous account-bound drops. It only contains pre-PoF exclusives though, and we have no indication of if they'll update it or not.

    I got it with a single key from PvP reward. I'm against RNG skins tho.
