Runic Chests are worthless wastes of gems
Well done on the glyphs again!
Time for refund from Apple
Lack of Glyph varieties
#2

Could you please remove those Arcane and Mystic Striker runes? They are almost useless just there to fill a gap in a monument slot…

And instead give us back Dark flak resist! Why would you remove that right when we got Leos?!? This is so irrational! (No comment on Leos usefulness please, I’m a cat person that’s why!)


#3

Thanks for the list!

Though for how expensive they are, having rares (and the less useful epics) makes them even less worthwhile :see_no_evil: . Making them worthwhile would probably need the removal of epics/rares. Or for epics, removing RSS/mage-related at the very least. Those are already in silver chests or events in abundance.

Also, which shield does Charged Shield apply to?

Edit: Can you also list the secondaries of what was added? They’re often not related to the primary.
Edit 2: I removed this in an edit, but I’m still reading the initial list two different ways. Is that the list before the changes or after? Added/Removed ones are both in there.


#4

PRICE REDUCTION!

at least reduce it to 6k per 10 opening or something (is it 8k before?)


#5

Other than the ice turret ones aren’t the other ones being added already in there? (per your list) Out of curiosity why are the dark flak resists being removed? I don’t have a dragon with flak resist so just curious.

Edit: Nvm I see now the list is updated with the additions and removals. Still too much nonsense in there to be worth even considering buying (for me). Runes that increase mage tower supershot damage I mean come on stop it


#6

Please remove RARE runes… not worth being in these chest… rare and common should only be in silver chest

These chest are already to expensive for what they are worth

(Another reason NOT to BUY them, it’s like price gouging gas during a hurricane an at the same time saying its premium when it is really unleaded)


#7

I never ever seen any epic and above food or lumber production, only rare ones. Is it exclusive to Runic chests?


#8

I have no idea, that’s not a rune I use and these chests are way too expensive for me considering the shaky results.


#9

I have a number of Epic Production runes >.> not sure if they’re from silver chests or event rewards, though.


#10

Personally I would make some severe changes.

Remove
Epic Arcane Striker

  • This rune is worthless. Increase the damage of a mage supershot…seriously?

Epic Charged Shield

  • Due to the limited dragons that have this, I think it’s a waste of a drop to have, personally.

Epic Food Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Epic Healing Striker

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Epic Ice Shock

  • Due to the limited dragons that have this, I think it’s a waste of a drop to have, personally

Epic Lumber Production

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Epic Lumber Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Epic Mystic Striker

  • This rune is worthless. Increase the damage of a mage supershot…seriously?

Epic Storm Striker

  • This rune does nothing and has done nothing since it was released. Take broken trash out of the runic chests.

Epic Wind Wall

  • I’ll assume this is an oversight. Few dragons have this and it’s a common spell rune to drop.

Legendary Evasion

  • Hahahahahaha, no.

Legendary Food Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Legendary Lumber Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Legendary Storm Striker

  • This rune does nothing and has done nothing since it was released. Take broken trash out of the runic chests.

Mythic Food Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

Mythic Lumber Production Glyph

  • These aren’t special and drop in a LOT of events and have VERY limited uses.

27 reasons not to buy Runic Chests

What she said.


#12

Do you know what charges shield is?


#13

Looking at the large quantity offered and considering the ruby cost, I feel the chests are too watered down with undesirable/unuseful items. I will probably save my rubies to spend on better odds elsewhere.


#14

Nice breakdown @Red


#15

I couldn’t agree more!! Why is there even rares in these chest! I’d love to see more details, more legendary and mythics!


#16

Thanks for the heads up, really appreciate it…

But I back RED 100% on the removals


#17

Thanks everyone for your initial feedback! We’ll continue to collect your responses and discuss internally. I can’t guarantee changes as it’s not my department, but this could definitely impact future changes and your feedback is super appreciated! :slight_smile:


#18

Very nice response… well respected


#19

Continuing the discussion from Charged Shield Rune… What is it?:

It’s an outdated name for a spell.


#20

Exactly! I 2nd Reds post!! I bet pg would make a decent amount of money if these changes were made.
