the details for last 2 card ex special Fierce and Bolba something or other was:
Now, there are 4 half boxes in the shop!!
HALF BOXES are 1,000gran / 31Card, guaranteed one copy of each Special EX Card below.
Also contains one 4-star, two-3stars, and 27 other cards between 1 and 5 stars!
I agree. I think it too expensive as well. For 3000 gran (roughly 30 usd) you get 3 ex, 3 RANDOM 4 stars, 6 RANDOM 3 stars and 81 cards of unknown rarity-most likely 1 and 2 stars. if you recycle everything but the EX and assume you get nothing but 1 stars then it should cost you [3000 - (3x100)-(6x30)-(81x5)] = 1185 gran. So Most expensive cost would be 1815 gran for 3 or roughly 6 bucks each.
That being said, we wouldn't even have half boxes if the forum community hadn't had an uproar when they did the original catira / Rileria lottery thing way back when. Didn't the catira and Rileria half boxes have increased rarity rates than the lotto on the 27 other cards? These 2 must have the higher recycle rate, otherwise it doesn't make sense to price them higher than traditional ex cards.
I recall Logress stating in that thread about doing the numbers on the recycle value before it could be released.
Anyway, as an aid to future spender perhaps those that buy can let us know what the contents of their boxes contain for reference.
Nought's had, all's spent, Where our desire is got without content;'Tis safer to be that which we destroy Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.
