Hey you guys, there are a few promotions out, a couple of which I think are at a decent value!
Limited Gem Pack
Lvl. 5 Gem Pack x1
Lvl. 1-5 Gem Pack x5
Price: 999 Balens. Daily limit of 200 per server. Limit of 10 per person every 4 hours.
These gem packs are at a pretty good value compared to most other gem promotions that we see, but since they're 10 bucks a pop, "good value" and "within the average budget" are very different things. I'm judging the value mostly compared to what you can possibly get in Jewel Hunt. By the time you get the top prize in Jewel Hunt, you've collected about the equivalent of two level 5 gems (and other stuff) for around 3000 balens. From this event you can get the same number of gems for 2000 balens, just not all the extra soul crystals, whips, etc.
Contains: Poseidon's Tabard x1, Poseidon's Discord x1, Poseidon's Blessing x1
I really like that they do these clothing sales. It's a good discount for newer players to get a set of clothing, and gives people a chance to get outfits that were originally in Big Spender events at a considerably better price. The Poseidon outfit is particularly good because all the pieces are A quality, and will identify for an initial boost of +8.
Mahra Pack I: Mahra x10, Sylph EXP Scroll x2
Price: 269 Balens. Limit of 50 per day.
Mahra Pack II: Mahra x100, Sylph EXP Scroll x20
Price: 2,499 Balens. Limit of 10 per day.
I'm not particularly enamored by these -- there were recently Limited Mahra Packs that were discounted quite a bit more, and I'm sure they'll be back eventually. So, if you're really thinking about cashing that sylph of yours up, I say to you, "Somethingsomething. Patience is a virtue."
Let me know what you guys are spending or not spending on. Only thing here I've dipped into are the gem packs.
