Ten silver is a bit of a disappointment for guaranteed bl chest item . . .

I meant to mention this when the chest changed over, but leaving the bl mastery coffer as the guaranteed item in the bl chest for this rotation after the gold value has been nerfed to ten silvers is a bit of an eh. And yes I know, who cares really the guaranteed item is often a nothing item but this is *really* a nothing item ; p May as well not even be there really . . .

Yehhh I don't really like the reduction in vendor value.   I just used them for spirit shards.  While it may be a who cares topic, it was such a significant drop, it's disappointing regardless.  They were kind of nice little bit of gold or mastery, depending on what you wanted.  Not quite down to repair canister level of dislike, but close enough.

The main point of that item is the mastery exp, not the vendor value anyways.

Yeah, which makes it rather worthless when you've got all masteries maxed out and a couple of thousand spirit shards gathering dust in your wallet, not to mention two stacks of Tomes of Knowledge in case you ever need more spirit shards...

Absolutely, but it went from one gold down to 10 silver in vendor value, so it's kind of disappointing for anyone who already has all the masteries and doesn't need xp.  

Spirit shards are nice but it was a good option to be able to sell it for a full gold.

I wonder how many more years until a bonus statuette rotation appears?

Yeah, true enough. It's mostly one of the things I remember the guaranteed item being, other than the minis and the seasonal bags. But I bothered to look up the historical guaranteed items, and pretty much every thing is better than the mastery coffer. I'd personally like the green dye canisters to return, but material bags, BL claim ticket scraps and minis are all good too. I'll just have to sit through the festival bags - don't really care for those either.

Play stupid game win stupid prizes. If people stop playing the gotcha chest, anet would move to less preditory monetization.

Some of us enjoy this content 🤷‍♂️ Because this game has no subscription, I do these for fun periodically and it supports the game. Doesn't feel like a "gotcha" to me.
