Added the new temporary rune lines.
Note that while this looks like one 42-prize line, it is not. In fact there are 3 lines stacked together, of 14 prizes each, and you can start each each line without completing the ones before, so you can start in the middle of the page.
Now as for value, it’s a bit of a mixed bag.
- First prize is free, can’t argue with that.
- The rune dust is very nicely priced, more dust per sigil than pretty much anywhere else. Unfortunately all but the first dust prize are behind others, so you’ll have to look at total cost.
- The chisels are very expensive, 8 sigils each where previous lines charged 4-5.
- Pretty much everything else is filler, the xp boosts are useful but also pretty expensive, and up to the mythic rune it’s pretty much fluff.
So what should you get?
Unless you’re close to hitting the 100m rune dust cap, I would recommend grabbing the first two prizes of each line, 4.5m rune dust for 600 sigils is a very good deal.
If you’re low on dust, grabbing the first 6 prizes of each line is still a reasonable option. That gets you 12m rune dust for 3300 sigils with 75 chisels as a bonus. That’s still better than what the exotic rune lines offered before, and those were already pretty good.
I wouldn’t go past prize 6 unless you’re interested in the rune. I think these runes are actually quite decent, much better than the old silver chest runes that gave +5% and a rubbish secondary. In fact, I think they’re comparable to using old divine glyphs (other than the rare Leos/Neptus ones). An old glyph gives you +8%/+0%, these give +6%/+3%. And of course you can’t use the old glyphs in a rune slot, so getting one of these can be useful. Maybe not for hunters if you already have mythic ammo runes, but for sorcerers and warriors the HP one is not bad.
Is it worth the sigil cost? I think it’s borderline. The rune dust is good, but the rest is meagre. I feel the 9m rune dust and 75 chisels are probably worth about 2500-3000 sigils tops. The rest of the prizes don’t really hold value, putting the real cost of the rune at around 2000 sigils, which is on the steep side. It’s not rubbish, but it’s not a must-have either in my book.
edit: Oh and the repeatable prize at the end is, as usual, quite a bit lower value and really only useful to people who have sigils left over at the end of a season.
