Silver chests are an absolute joke. They are a sad and pathetic little sibling of Runic chests. Literally nothing comes in the silver chests that doesn’t come in the runic chests. But silver drops are smaller, they exclude glyphs and they exclude runes for modern dragons and towers.
So basically all you get in them is “rare” classic runes like ballista frenzy and tough healing and very tiny amounts of rune dust - 500 dust at a time. Thats 500 ,not 500k. Thanks for that 0.001% of what I need to level up one mythic rune one level. Speaking of dust, the crap runes that come in silver chests are worth so little dust that it isnt even worth while to spend the time to dust them all. Of course you have to do it anyway, worthwhile or not, because otherwise your rune vault becomes a college dorm room of clutter.
You cant even open silver chests during half of the events of the season. They are put aside for runic or sigil chests. This leads to lots of consternation from newbies like the post below Silver chests rip off scam
The only value of silver chests are the occasional epic or legendary rage runes, and queuing up the legendary drop so that you can save it for runic or sigil chests later. Besides those two things they have no use whatsoever.
Its time to retire silver chests entirely. Here’s how I think the retirement should happen;
- Armory should have runic chests all season and then change to sigil chests the last two weeks of the season.
- Give us one free legendary drop per week on the runic/sigil chests so that people dont bitch about losing the freebie that could be obtained by opening the silver chests and then saving the free legendary drop.
- Replace silver chest drops in battle with runic chests and bronze chests. Runic would drop at the same rate as gold chests, and the rest would become bronze.
- Silver chests in the season trees and event prizes would become runic chests instead.
