    Considering that lockboxes don't seem to be something well-accepted around here in general, what are you trying to achieve by asking this?

    Who cares? My favorite lockbox was the Freeform lockbox because it's the only one I ever got the prize from.

    Like actual taco boxes, Tako Boxes usually has something good in it... except the occasional bout of diarrhea being visualized by the low-rank mods you get a buttload of.

    The worst, on the other hand, were the vehicle lockboxes, represented by those gross-looking Star Wars burgers that Burger King tried to sell at one point.

    Drifter's Grab Bags were also good, even we can't get the best prize, Salvage was at least free.
    Free things are good but we have to drop some real money to stay this game alive. xD

    The Drifter Salvage WAS free in the Drifter Bags. At least, for the one bag per day you could get via the daily mission.

    To answer the OP: Anything that doesn't have vehicle mods in it. I will never open another Tank or Bike lockbox, ever. The Tako, Malvanum and Socrates boxes at least give me something I can use (other than just Drifter Salvage) every time I open one, even if the mods aren't super useful.

    Weren't those grab bags?

    Whatever, those ones get my vote too, they had the best prize....some might say the only prize ever worth getting.

    Think of it this way.

    You hate having screws driven into your legs. Which brand of screws is the least painful?

    or

    Of all the foods that you think are disgusting, which is the least disgusting? You're having that for dinner.

    It's that sort of a question.

    Fearing that my post will get suddenly deleted, I shall state that my most favored lock box is that of the Hover Bike variety, as it helps support the game's fledgling and highly lucrative market in vehicular addons to the garishly created characters featured by the pernicious and stringent customers and players of this game.

    However, at the interest of at least appearing somewhat honest, I would also like to add that lockboxes in the whole should fornicate in a off-ward direction, as it will likely prove a larger benefit to this game than the lackadaisical intention that the developers at Cryptic North have inundated into this game so far.

    I liked the Infernal bag as it was their first failed attempt at adding aura costume pieces to the tailor. And a majority of the player base still doesn't have the aura eyes.

    But my favorite was the Takofanes box because it had lots of good stuff in it and nothing to do with vehicles. I got everything a few times with only 100 keys.

    Though the Forum box would have trumped it if its chances of getting good items didn't suck and everything in it wasn't broken.

    But my favorite bag/box is definitely the service one. They dropped those because players were profiting too much from getting character slots too easily or something, right?

    I'd like those old bags (except service) to make a permanent comeback for 10G a piece from Roxstar. It will be a great start to kill off some of the over abundant resources in the game.

    Service grabbag. It was the only one that it didn't matter what you got because everything was good. The vehicle lock boxes are abhorrently stupid.

    "Oh, you didn't get the vehicle but here's some vehicle mods!" Who thought giving us things for something we didn't even have yet was a good idea? If you had it already then it was great but if you didn't.. well... just kind of cruel. ._. "Look at all these mods you COULD use if you win!" I'm okay with the idea of the lockbox if everything in it is fantastic and that's not the only way you can get new shinies. CO is doing none of those things.

    I say stuff and I say things, sometimes together but only when I'm feeling adventurous.

    you know, i remember an old episode of family fued where the category was "things that describe a troll" Apparently some of th questioners were thinking of wish trolls because things like long hair and short were acceptable answers, whereas i was pretty much reciting the monster manual description of one.
    Apparently i got sort of heated because my non-nerd friends got a good laugh about my yelling at the screen.

    Freeform Bag was the best one by far.
    Infernal Bag is a close second, because it had really neat costume pieces that weren't horribly broken AND you could win an awesome AT from it too.

    That's all. The actual Lockboxes are the worst. All of them. No exceptions.

    In all seriousness, it has a pretty good list of prizes.

    Careful what you wish for. We asked for vehicles as travel powers, we got modified Become devices. You ask for horses, we might get playable centaurs. Fantastic!

    Yeah, I'd be careful what you wish for. As cool as playable centaurs would be (riding one is a little too "squicky" for me), for example, I'm sure there's some drawback that would bite us in the backside.

    I once made a very compelling case for being able to use Winged Folk from an old Dragon Magazine as a player character race in a 2nd Edition campaign. Right in the description was a note about debilitating claustrophobia. No points for guessing what sort of environments we found ourselves for the next few sessions. :smile:

    The only gamble box that was decent were the mountain grab bags, and only because you could earn them in game and you were guaranteed to get one of the costume pieces, but since then and aside from opening a few grav bike gamble boxes, I've ignored pretty much all the others.

    No one enforce us to buy Cosmic Key, so, we have a selection not to buy.

    I rather wants to talk about what kind of Become Device and Vehicle we can get and how good they are, Gear and Mods Drop rate, something such like those.

    We don't know which LockBox has better drop rate for Legions and most of us doesn't even know how good each Becomes and Vehicles are.

    I luv TakoBox cause Become Doomlord has click Rez and works marvelous in situation like Gravitar, Therakiel. :3

    That isn't what they are counting on with the keys, they are praying on players with weak impulse control, and the last FM events race was a rather blatant attempt to pressure people into buying them too.

    Since only those with a flight tp or a vehicle could actually participate. Which meant others had to ether retcon, which can get costly, buy a retcon token, or buy a vehicle.

    And also, we have 3 way to get Cosmic Key.

    First, pay money and earn Zen.
    Second, grind Questionite and transfer to Zen.
    3rd, buy Cosmic Key from someone selling them 100-200G price.

    Even we don't pay, its not so incredible to farm 1 key each day or 2 if we have one lvl40 toon right?
    I think its not so bad as the daily fortune cookie. If you hit the prize, you can be happy all day.

    I personally think its not so ridiculous price even the awful drop rate cause we have "Salvage".

    But I want more new selection in Drifter store, like Legacy Weapon Skin Kit.
    I need harquebus !! :3

    Probably we don't have enough Devs to make new content for now. Even bug fix takes time and I think Trainturtle is doing very good job with very few hands.
    Let's enjoy what we have now and wait. I believe we can get some new things after NWO and STO got steady contents.

    Trailturtle isn't a dev. He's a community manager.

    STO already has gotten "steady" contents. It has certainly been getting more than us. I won't touch on NWO since it's new. However neither are any assurance that they'll be helping us get content.

    We can be sure about two things though: We will get more lockbox-exclusive stuff and we will only be getting content in terms of temporary events. I hardly call events like Blood Moon being only available once per year at certain times being "steady" content.

    If the upcoming stuff isn't a temporary event then I'll relent a little on my views.
