    Custom shield tattoos coming up! I hate the veil.

    So February's promotion was a success! I know you guys don't often hear that sort of thing, but everyone should know Aetolia's doing great.

    The only problem... I have no idea WHY February worked. It was kinda 'new' and used different mechanics than normal. Anyone mind sharing what they liked/hated?

    February was my favorite promotion, mainly because I felt like I was actually getting my money's worth especially after january's promotion which soured my perception of rolling the dice. Comparatively, I spent the same amount of money in both January and February and February I got almost tripled my investment. So definitely a yay for better odds!

    Another thing I liked about February's promotion was how interactive it was! I liked shooting people and didn't mind the tedium of it. It also made me happy that people were being benefited by me playing Aetolian cupid.

    Only thing I could suggest is opening the stores earlier! I felt like they were opened too late into the promotion so we had to field some questions on 'what is this heart of darkness for??".

    Oh I can answer that at least from my point of view. Maybe some others can chime in and give their 2 cents. 

    I don't like gambling where I could end up with just a mess of minipets, chocolates and consumables. I'm not big on taking a gamble in the first place. This promo wasn't much of a gamble. I would have been very happy if I had gotten the wormhole lv2 arti but I got a massive amount of credits from the purses for much cheaper than I would have gotten from a credit sale. It was a win win that allowed me to get some very useful artifacts.

    Also, the chests always only contain the most recent relics. I'm not positive why we do that.

    Curious to know if this means that I have no chance to get things like the Starchart or Hunter's Tools or whatever else aren't considered 'recent'? At least, I'm assuming they're not recent.

    Sorry if there's somewhere else I could post this, but I'm considering buying chests, and I'm just straight not gonna if the relics I want won't be in there.

    Neither of those are currently in it. I'll consider changing it on the refresh around the 15th!

    Okay! Thanks for letting me know :)

    It'd be pretty cool if there were a way to look up which items are available in these sort of lootbox promos - not weights or anything, but a list of possibilities. At least then, those of us with a wishlist will know if and when it's better to hold on to our cash and when to dump as much as we can spare at the opportunity to knock an item or two off the list.

    I have a budget for monthly entertainment spending, and I'm glad to give most of it to whatever promo is running, but especially so if I know I'll have the chance at things I consider worth the investment.

    Actually, I am just a terrible person. We DO have a list that is kept updated, except when I forget like I just did. I'll try to get that updated today!

    HELP CRYPTIC CHESTS does say what's inside, but I stupidly forgot to update it this month.

    There we go, updated. I'll fix it on the refresh too, and I apologize for the mistake!

    Chests are never as good as I want them to be when they don't contain salvage. :( As much as I want to dream of getting a house deed or some such, I think I'll probably wait for the refresh.

    You also dislike chest! I never get anything I want out of them.

    Something with Salvage like Kalinaar said above or terrariums. Terrariums seem fun and will promote minipet usage - and could even result in salvage rewards too from the terrarium minipet games. We've got an overage of minipets from all of the recent chest promotions!

    I'm BIASED. I've gotten a good amount of chests and I'm loaded with minipets.

    Some items I would seriously love to see show up in promotions....

    -relic pieces for building the hunter's tools
    -relic pieces for building the compass-inlaid ilmenite bracer
    -salvage!
    -Veils! (and more types of these too please!)
    -Artifacts. I want to be like Mazzion one day (bet he doesn't hear that every day! bahahaha!)

    I'm Kalinaar and I approve this message.

    I think items that allow you to customize your characters are super cool! However I feel like some of them have stagnated. If something like new voxes were to be released, that would be incredible. 

    Edit: like the above comment said, more veils, flairs, phylacteries, pretty please!

    Veils I kind of hate.

    I will look at more of the other stuff tho!

    @Tiur honestly veils are cool but flairs and phylacteries pretty please!

    We like veils! Especially those of us that don't have one yet! lol

    I liked that diminishing discount promo from a few years back. Salvage is always popular, too.

    I'll admit, when you see me add salvage, it's because I am out of ideas. It's popular. The problem is that it's expensive!

    What about more of the Talisman of Sapience? I love that it works with the Compendium in some environments.

    Which promotions had the almond/cherry/white/fudge chocolates with them? I want to say the Wheel of Fates was able to spit out the rarer four chocolates, but I'm not sure. Either way, can we please have them in the Wheel chocolate boxes? And in milestone wares?

    I asked for the rarer chocolates in milestone wares when the system first came out and they said they intentionally chose not to include them @Fezzix
