I have a wizard Kingdom File which is very competative, with the following cards

3xRenally
3xRubia
3xMage Paladin

when these cards are out together they are unstoppable xD they can also deal with the popular big blue files if planned carefully ;a38

The minimum you could pay to get 3 Verlaats would be 6,300 gran (3 boxes) or about 60 bucks. The odds of pulling 3 Verlats are 1/8 * 1/8 * 1/8 = 0% rounded to the nearest whole number or about 0.2% so yeah you'd have to be one of the luckiest people to ever walk the earth but it could happen.

You've already got 1 verlat (unlike most people) which puts you ahead of the game. On average you should get one verlat in every 8 boxes so if you buy 16 more boxes you SHOULD be able to complete your set. Theres no guarentee of course, but on the flip side theres also a chance you might get lucky and pull him before your reach your 16th box. Its also worth noting that the more boxes you get the more cards your going to start having 4+ copies of and since the most copies of a card you'll ever need in this game is 3 you can proceed to recycle all those extra copies effectively reducing the cost of the boxes so things are QUITE as ridiculous as they sound.

Technically speaking their ARE other ways to get verlats then boxes. Occasionally tournaments or other special events will have prizes where a person can choose a specific card of a specified rarity (usually 5 star for first place if its a tournament) to be awarded them. In these cases you could choose Verlat, but of course getting these prizes is easier said then done.

And of course theres always treasure battles which once every blue moon do have a 5 star rare up for grabs, but since they pick from the pool of all released sets your odds now drop to 1 in 16 of it being verlat even if you do get a 5 star treasure battle, and of course then you have to win the treasure battle, and with each future set the odds are only going to further stack against you.

So luck is definitely important, but lots of spending or kicking butt in a tournament can help make up for bad luck and get you Verlaats as well.
