So you spend 900kp to get a Bison Horn, a quadrille and an Arch ring! Some may say just really unlucky, I would say no consideration to put itens that by no mean has any decent use to the game as it is today. So guess just keep playing and hope that more will come out to complain and they eventually will do something like grama boxter update to fix these kind of "jokes"...

Thank you for supporting the game ^_^

But the boxes never considered the ingame drop items.

Hence KP items> normal drop items.

Thats shown from all the gears.

I still remember spending around $500 on those boxes containing heartwing hairband and not getting a single one. It was really frustrating.

7k kp this time but still didn't get a cylinder hairband, which is all I needed. At the end I bought everything in game

It stinks lol. I just wish they stopped putting in the boxes a bunch of garbage we can farm ingame. Like ice pick, ab ring..really?! I'm speechless.
Anyway we need an eta for fixing the hairband. Better be before the bio5 hg's release.

Did we got a word until when we'll be receiving jRO ragcans? I really missed monthly lucky/groove boxes wherein there are only a handful of items/consumables in it and the probability of getting what you want is high, rather than  having lots of trashy items on one box. :p_swt: I don't want to gamble anymore with the ragcan.

maybe I didnt express myself with the right words.

the frustation is not the gambling and the bad luck, or how many boxes I'm opening, but the itens that are in there.

I'm ok receiving useless itens that are new, but not those itens that we can farm in game , and is actually really easy to put your hands on.

Well I bought 2 more got what they called "skewer", which is a brocca !!!!!! lol Second one got a Cylinder.(still frustrated tho)

as i said b4 life keeps going on...

I miss groove packs T.T 30+ item boxes are just too bad for me to even try the luck, rng can be dealt with if you have at least more chances to try like getting some zeny from the boxes to justify the investment but with these boxes is not even close, most items are simply way below the value of the boxes, if at least they were new versions of old items i guess it could be of some use but not even that ¬¬'

Although I understand the fustration you are in, you had full extended knowledge of the contents that the box drop list contains these items. It is truely sad things did not go your way but if you didnt take the risk you wouldnt get the result. inversely, if you didnt take the risk, then you may have always been wondering what you might have gotten and regret not buying the box.

Bad RNG is bad so its alright to let out abit of that anger here and every so often. At least you can do so on the forums.

Honestly, I agree with OP. I used KP I got from VIPing, (so I'm not really all that upset) but getting a bison horn- an item that people were already throwing down on the ground as trash 3 years ago if not longer? I get what people are saying about already knowing the contents of the boxes before hand, but I've already been hanging onto my KP for a while because of the last couple of crappy boxes. And getting junk drops was just a slap in the face.

 

I asked this before, and I'll ask again- I thought WP wasn't going to put normal drops in boxes?

It's because us players keep buying.

Personally, I spent only 5 boxes just to do my usual support the game. But I would never drop 7k kp on these boxes.

The only way iRO will consider changing up their box content is if people stop buying into these boxes. I know more players spent money on buying boxes when the content is good vs having a box where the content is somewhat okay. This is a dangerous box to invest in and you're way better off just buying a cylinder hairband through vends.

 Frustration is a bit different from anger. No angry , so not that I went there to buy more, but u still right is a gamble, and like i said life goes on...

 

 

And yes Aco is right people keep buying it , but they did introduced a "refund" option for a grove pack a few months b4 ( when they added a chance to get gramma boxter points for some unwanted itens) but now u cant even do that cuz the itens are easily to get in game tho.

I have to vip 3 accounts so it's at least 4.5 kp every month. With this crappy luck I have I guess I'm better off buying gwings really lol. l keep telling myself I won't buy any boxes, esp when I don't get what I what. But end up buying more than I should. Every month the same story.

Guess I'll just take your advice and stop buying for good. Unless they decide to change the box format. They are doing a really good job ripping us off by adding one or two items that worth having at a very low rate plus a massive amount of junk.

The boxes are definitely a rip off. The first oversea box was amazing, but now we see the common trend of iRO adding more junk into boxes. It pisses me off whenever I get a PvM item because I KNOW how to get these items without spending 300 KP. The value on a lot of items have been greatly diminished by these box contents and it's hard to find anything worth selling that isn't a card, consumables, or a kafra related item.

 

You don't even get a bonus BMx3, BB, or HE Gum just for purchasing either. And you can't trade in these items to grandma boxter. Honestly, the box content is mostly a trap and you're gambling a lot to try and get lucky on the selected items you want.

My plan now is just save my kp and WPE until I find a box that's actually worth opening. I rather spend the 1bil just buying the item then wasting real money on some quadrilles. I know personally that I can get 1bil much more efficiently.

To be honest, you should've not even bought the box or any boxes in the cash shop.

If you are a established player, better buy a specific item from other players with unlimited source of zeny.

If you are a new player, just don't buy any boxes at all and play the game casually. WoE and PvP are dead so no point to play the game competitively correct? Jajaja

I would only buy the box if its really worth buying; more OP gears, less useless items.

So you spent only 900KP on useless items and you are complaining already? I spent like 9000KP to finally got my two perfectly enchanted RWC 2012 Pendants, got lots of useless enchants and had to reset with Kafra's tickets. I didnt complain, only joked at my bad luck, or maybe someone had done even worse. Anyway, its a gamble and you have to take the risk, or you should not bet your luck on Kafra Boxes at all.

 

Of course, its a different story if certain items have a lower change to show up. In this case I understand people are frustrated, and I believe they should let us know ahead of time rather than make it look like everything is of the same change.

if it didnt have crap stuff, people will simply complain the box is only ever full of OP stuff

if it has crap stuff, people complain that it has crap stuff
if it doesnt give enough of the stuff, people complain that the box is a rip off because its not giving enough of the stuff in particular

If it gives a fair amount of the stuff, people complain that the box is destroying the market

 

It seems there can never reach an equilibrium as long as hope is involved in the box that you can get the item.
