I loved this idea! Then again, I’m in a great alliance where everyone helps everyone else, whereas not everyone is so lucky. If you’ve got a fulll one, it means that for $3 (or equiv), you have the potential to gain a total of 1200 gems, which is a great deal, AND you get to show your love.
Of course not everyone is expected to make the purchase, but it’s nice having the option of benefiting both yourself and your teammates.
How about $1 mystery gifts of 3*/hard to get, unfarmable ascension items? Telescopes, sturdy shields, darts, tabards, compasses, orbs, trap tools, etc?
That would potentially help a great deal, especially for those who, like myself, have been waiting 2 months for certain items.
Also, not knowing what’s in your mystery boxes would give a nice little “ooh, what’s in the box?!?” excitement as well.
