    Please put up another announcement once the skins are sold in store; we might actually care to spend runes.

    At least we get the weapons for free. Or did I misread something? OMG DISAPPOINTMENT IS REAL. I did misread. I understand having skins for purchase, but what you have done here is stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid. Also, other games randomly gives cosmetics for free so the responses "it is in line with other games" IS INVALID!

    Why? so every game will have 1 or 2....I prefer them being a rare find that way I might value them more than a simple mini purchase.

    Because no one wants to money for a random drop. That's why. These devs love to take a few step forward then a few steps back.

    Have you heard of Counter Strike keys?...and that's just off the top of my head, there's plenty more examples of this in games that make millions.

    My thoughts exactly. Just because another game does it DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT IS JUSTIFIABLE.

    Never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an advocate of restricting class stacking.

    An informal request to try to keep it civil in here, folks. There is no purpose in name-calling or retaliation; please try to post within the parameters of the Forum TOU you agreed to. Thanks.

    Many other games do it and are very successful in doing so, you can also buy them yes but this is how a free to play model works (infact this is how alot of games multiplayer works these days, cases/battle packs/drops/loot/chests, it gives the majority of players a reason to keep playing), it would be different if the bonuses on the abilities or weapons were better but there not...everything seems to be cosmetic. The game was funded because of this model, honestly what did you expect, free content they could charge for but don't?...In a "free" to play game.

    And in reply to your original unedited post, the way the post below is "constructed" is the reason I made the insult.

    From the Chest Feedback Thread:

    In terms of pricing on the chest;

    Agreed, adjust the odds or the pricing. Take out the regular Mystery items and chance of boosters...leave special named Mystery Items and Skins, I feel its the best way forward.

    I don't remember ever supporting class count restrictions.

    Random chance is not worth money. It's a video game, not a bloody slot machine. Nix the random chance and have it stated outright what the chest contains so we don't waste our money looking for a skin and end up with some kind of crossbow or something. The content would still be 'random' but nobody would be getting screwed out of cash. Win-win, yeah?

    Hi everyone,
    Just to reiterate what Lord_Aevum posted, we definitely welcome all feedback (good or bad!) and it gets listened to, but please keep it constructive.


    For the Human weapons, I have seen a few more requests for screenshots. There's an album up here for the weapons (first season uniques) and one here for the Vampire Marked skins.

    I don't mind this chest system, what bother me is that you can get mysterious items in them, which is pretty disappointing because you can get them from random drops.
    I would suggest to add every new visual effect (http://imgur.com/a/etk39) to every weapons of all classes or it could be an effect that you decide to apply to the weapon of your choice, without the possibility of removing it. I don't know what to think about those weapon's stats though, maybe it should only be weapon skins.

    I have to admit that I'm disappointed by those Vampire's "Unique abilities". They don't get any new visual effect, it's just the 5 FX from mysterious weapons :/

    The new Alchemist skin looks nice, looking forward for the others

    On another topic, runestones are still pretty expensive... 7.49€ for 2100 = 2 chests, that's a bit overpriced for mysterious weapons, isn't it ?
