    6 months is ~184 days or so (~26 weeks; 27 7/7 coffers). yep, you'll need to wait until the invocation awards are updated in M6 to see what you can get with your celestial coins.

    you're not quite high enough to get the companion, though, so keep going.

    I'd have advised using the 6/7 coffer if you were leveling as you'd have at least gotten enough to get to the top of dread ring's boon tree - a much better investment for your (expended) time.

    Its why i dont even bother to pray much anymore, ever since they decreased the coal ward to about 3% a few mods ago. Its just not been worth it.

    You are lucky. Because it took 1 year for me to understand praying in game is for nothing. Only good thing is as arsonall82 said 6/7 coffers.

    ...funny.

    I got a Coal Ward out of my tenth or so coffer, and tend to find them with about 1% chance ever since. Just a week or two ago I had the need for another Coal Ward and had to open 16 chest until I had it. And as I'm a Alt-o-holic, also into the Leadership AD minting game, I get to open a few hundred of those blue chests every few months. A bunch of Rank fives also drops during the opening orgies...

    Basically, dear OP, that's tough luck. I fared better, fortunately...

    Hmm, as a newer player (started this year) I've been praying every day on 5 toons. I've gotten 20 celestial boxes and haven't opened them yet because I fear for the drop rate of coalescent wards. Seems like my fears are justified. 1% chance. Gosh, it's like playing the pokies :(

    In the last few months I got 8 C. Wards (and, yeah, I know it sounds crazy). The weird thing is that I got them all in the course of 2-3 weeks, praying on 9 characters. For a while it was like a regular occurrence. I thought they changed the drop rates to something really high like 40% or 50%. Now I'm back to Peridots and Enchantments, with a P. Ward every now and then. Oh well, it was too good to last, I guess.

    You get something once you stop giving a ****. Got two coal wards last week on my 11 toons. It was like > invoke > open chest > close the window> oh wait was that.

    A few more data points for those that track or are otherwise interested in this stuff. I opened 350 stockpiled Coffers of Wondrous Augmentation for the Double RP weekend. The results:

    6 Coalescent Wards
    108 Preservation Wards
    1 Azure Enchantment, Rank 5
    1 Radiant Enchantment, Rank 5
    1 Dark Enchantment, Rank 5
    1 Silvery Enchantment, Rank 5
    24 Aquamarine
    212 Peridot
    106 Radiant Enchantment, Rank 4
    109 Dark Enchantment, Rank 4
    124 Azure Enchantment, Rank 4
    113 Silvery Enchantment, Rank 4

    I don't know if the Rank 5 rate is always that low - I don't think so - but the rest seems pretty much in line with what I've gotten in the past (since C. Wards became bound anyway).

    That sounds about right.

    I opened about 250~300 coffers in the past 2 months, I got a total of 7~8 Coalscent ward, so it seems coalward's is about 3~5% chance, not too bad for a freebie :>

    Sorry, I cant post my own thread so I dont know where to post this to get help... please help me!

    PLEASE! Someone help me! I am very NEW to this game and have been loving it thus far, BUT I cannot use THREATENING RUSH. I am a level 50 GWF and have all 3 power points in it and moved it into my "At Will" tray next to SURE STRIKE, the problem is that THREATENING STRIKE is "greyed" out (it also has a small number '3' in the bottom left corner of it) and will not let me use it... what gives, what am i missing and why doesn't this game explain anything what-so-ever so that one doesn't lose their mind trying to figure out the basic game mechanics???

    no matter the complaint, it's still free money. I'm not even sure why invoking is a thing.
