1 guaranteed legendary equipment box or 15 gold level boxes?

Japes87Japes87 Member Posts: 1,399
I'm a little unsure of how to proceed here with trade goods expenditure. So far I have purchased three 7500 trade good boxes (very expensive) and received 1 Bruiser weapon on par with my max survivors and 2 shooter weapons a level below my max survivors (useless to me).

In another thread , I heard a forum user say they received 2 epic or legendary pieces just buying the 500 trade good boxes out of a few tries , so I figured I would stop wasting the 7500 and just go for 500 boxes..

So far after about 25 tries , I have received nothing but xp, ketchup, and rare level equipment , no epic or legendary at all.

This is either horrendous luck , or they have purposely taken the epics and Legendaries out of the prize pool so people are more apt to spend the 3500 or 7500 on guaranteed Epic/legendary equipment.

So I'm interested to hear if anyone has gotten any from 500 boxes , any input is appreciated.

TLDR?

Any Epic or Legendary equipment from 500 boxes at the trade goods store?

Cheers!

    I go for the 15 golden tickets, but then, I like the XP/tomatoes tickets. It's nice adding 25,000-30,000 per pop!

    I have tried the legendary equip twice and never again. Got junk twice and have been doing golden tix since

    Seeing as there is 3 threads about this now , I really think the 'behaviour' of the Golden crates has changed. Thanks for the feedback guys , guess I'll keep pulling 500 boxes and hope they adjust it

    Yes, I stated in another thread that I did 18 gold boxes and best I received was 5 or 6 rares....utter waste.

    I got lvl 12 epic and rare today from gold tickets. Scrapped them since my survivors are lvl 15. Really need lvl 13 minimum for it to be an option to raise since my training ground can work on lvl 14s.

    Have you tried if the levels have been better suited for you since the balance change a few hours ago?

    I did a 3500 epic crate today. I received bruiser armor lvl 14 with a starting defense of 223. Unfortunately, my only bruiser is lvl 12, so it will be a while before he grows into it.

    After 20-25 gold boxes I got 1 epic which was of no value. Mostly getting low level rares.
  • eetueetu Member Posts: 637
    The rarities were not touched, but the lowest levels you can get should not be as low as before.

    Well after the 18 gold crates before the fix with 5 or 6 rares and nothing better I waited.
    I had 8k so I bought a gold chest......lvl 15 rare bball bat lol, then bought a legendary chest........lvl 16 hunter weapon.....
    SO lol to summarize I am still getting the shaft.....maybe a quick explanation. I have all epics, highest lvl 15....oh wait EXCEPT for my 1 rare hunter maxed at 13 because in more months then I care to remember I have not even seen a hunter in the who knows how many 15 radio calls I have made.......and on the event weekends all I pull is rares and none of them hunters.......so yeah still getting the shaft lol

    yes I tried, bought about 20 gold crates. max gear level was 15 min 13. my training grounds are maxed, player lvl 40, workshop one below max.
    If I understood the intention of the balance correctly, this defenitly below my expectations (range 15-16)...

    In 14 tries; 1 box with 4 radios, 4 20000 supplies, 4 20000 xp, 4 rare crap and 1 epic nothing. I'd like to see what everyone gets in the future on this thread to see if the gold boxes are still worth it. The radios, xp and supplies were nice.

    Update , 49 - 500 boxes opened without 1 epic or legendary piece of gear.couple of 4 phones about 10 rare gear pieces and a bunch of xp and tomato cans

    @eetu pardon me for being unsure , but was it you who said the 500 crates are the same as the ones from missions and deadlies? This cannot be

    I pulled an epic handgun from a gold box. It started at lvl 11 (max at 13). All 3 of my shooters are level 12 and are carrying level 13&14 handguns. I also have a lvl 14 (max 16) legendary handgun waiting for someone to grow into it. I think I got that from a quest reward. I ended up scrapping tge new gun since what I already have is maxed and better at the moment.

    Based on my experience, 3 times 7.500 TG Box, and I got this:








    About the Gold Chest, I choose this option a couple of times, and I really got nothing interesting. Even a green Gun which I scraped instantly. So, I prefer the first option.

    Update : bit the bullet and opened a 7500 tonight as I haven't seen one epic or legendary yet out of over 60 - 500 boxes,
    Got this.. Not exactly what I was looking for but looks like they kept their word and fixed the level appropriateness of the legendary crates. I still don't see how the 500 boxes can be the same as the ones received on deadly missions , but I definitely appreciate the mods resolving this with everything else going on.

    Cheers @eetu !
