I open the chests every once in awhile. I don't believe I've gotten anything I've needed ever either. I'll open them once or twice but that is it. Never understood why some cost more than others. IE some costs 50c at first and some 75c. Like many others I would love to see chests in all the long dungeons (dungeons that run 2-3hrs for a single run) Also as others have stated, it would be nice to have the drop rate go up on those chests so I may actually get something worth spending my crowns on.

The temperature is climbing out there, and so are my spirits! It's also Friday, so that makes me one happy Fire Professor!

Today, let's chat about second chance chests. Do you use them, or do you prefer to just run the dungeon again? Are there any second chance chests you use over others?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I never use them. waste of crowns, that I could put towards seeds for gardening, packs, pets etc. I just farm stuff over and over. I never miss a chance when a friend asks me to farm mirror lake in zafaria for example. I wouldn't miss a chance with waterworks either but when friends call I'm invariably in a dungeon of my own. I'm soon going to be spending an obscene amount of time in tartarus though, since I finally got up to level 90.

I usually don't use second chance chests - I'm admittedly extremely parsimonious when it comes to spending crowns. However, if we could draw from the chests by spending gold (e.g., 5000 gold per draw with increases in 2500 gold increments), I would definitely use them more!

Never used coins for anything else than unlocking areas and buying a mount so far. Not intending to waste coins on chests ever probably. If I want to get something I'll do it from farming bosses/instances. Don't really now what their drops are though so its probably just general farming hoping for good drops :)
I mostly just do quests instead of farming bosses atm though.

the only really important farming dungeon that has it is malistaire cause for example the best gear for lvls comes from
waterworks
tartarus
morganthe
but for all of those there is no second chance chest so the dungeons that do have them usually drop pretty terrible gear in comparrison to the ones listed above so for me i never use them and probably never will

I almost always run the dungeon over again unless it is the Loremaster. I always have good luck with her second chance chest.

Never again. I don't believe in gambling. The times i have tried the chests or buying packs I got nothing good and I felt like a fool for trying. I don't mind paying for something if I know what I am getting, but won't waste any more money on long shot bets. No more chests or packs for me.

I have used them a couple of times. But generally, no, I don't use them. They are basically a waste of crowns.

Unless the second chance chest for her gives up the spells I want...nah. Good grief she's stingy with the spell drops.

Loremaster seems worse. IDK if the rate has gone down or my luck has run out, but can't seem to get anything now. I made the mistake of throwning in 50 crowns for junk, reminding me why I usually skip chests.

So no.

I have only used the chests a handful of times, but this is an awesome idea; I'd bite, since I rarely (if ever) get lucky with drops.

I have spent a considerable amount in second chance chests. The ones I used most are in dungeons that would take a very long time to complete a second, third, fourth, fifth round. The items I was hoping to get were the various katana wands in Mooshu (e.g., War Oni), as well as hats/robes/boots with school prints in Marleybone (e.g., Dr. Katzenstein's Lab, or the Big Ben milk boss).

I have also spent a bit in the Loremaster second chance chest, since the first couple of draws cost considerably less than buying a card pack.

Thanks for your feedback, everyone. We'll discuss this one at the office! A new Feedback Friday will be posted shortly.
