Recycling Recycling Recycling...
Went on a recycling frenzy to test my luck at getting at least one of all the seasonal cards... So I scrounged up enough for 13 more draws to add to my earlier attempts...
First draw set attempts... This 2nd draw set attempts...
2 Archer Scouts +2 = 4
7 Sorcerer Guards +2 = 9
1 Saber Saint/ Lapierre + 1 = 2
5 Magic Dolls +3 = 8
2 Lycanthrope [Seraph]s +1 = 3
8 Devouring Lizards +2 = 10
Black Cat/Fellana: ZIP +1 (3rd to last draw!) = 1
Dark Emperor Zu-Jyava: ZIP +1 (Woo Hoo! Last draw!) = 1
Total # of cards: 38
Total gran spent: 38 x 50 gran/draw = 1900 Gran.
Considering that I only had 1 Dark Emperor before, and I enjoy playing Lawtia, this didn't seem like a bad investment. I also only had 2 Black Cats beforehand.... so this completes that set of 3 for me (Black Cat + Turn to Dust = Scandalous Fun!)
Not sure for other people however.
Depends if you "collect" or "need" them.
For 200 Gran more (2100 Gran) I could have bought a box of 65 cards (random one 5-star and one 4-star).
However, in my case I "needed" Dark Emperors. If someone already has 3 of the cards they want already (non-seasonal), they may balk at purchasing from the seasonal lottery and go for the box instead.
As for collecting, the artwork is great to look at, but I'd personally want them available as prints/posters/etc. (Go Go Conversation Piece about Alteil!)
