      Unhappy Re: New "Skeleton Key Bundles".

      So this is why the drop rates at King Borr are so dismal- it's so that KingsIsle can make some extra bucks selling Skeleton Keys!

      That seems like a lot of Crowns for something that should be dropping in lots of places for players as they travel through the Spiral.

      Re: New "Skeleton Key Bundles".

      I was aggressively farming wooden keys before the update.

      Before the AOE speed up, I cleared rooftop in 6 min. at best. So at max 10 runs per hour.

      In nighttime hours I had 60% chance for a key per run.
      In daytime hours I had 30% chance for a key per run.

      Assuming daytime farming, we get 3 keys per 10 runs. Or 3 keys per hour.

      The bundle is 3 wooden keys per hour, or 1500 crowns per hour.

      Though I wouldn't buy the bundle, since I don't need the keys immediately and the experience of farming is more important than actually acquiring a mount I want.

      That's why video games are like this. I'm not really surprised KI did what they did. It's the usual "pay for convenience" tactic and you know KI won't say/do anything about it. Expect more garbage like this in the future. It's going to happen

      Kingsisle is such a predator when it comes to schemes like this. Rather than being selflessly nice, they're always trying to be greedy with player's money...

      it was a few years since i farmed for wooden keys . mainly used death wizards with deer knight on oakheart in MS. basically i got the same results. all that work was for RA to give me camel mounts.

      now it is a joke to buy gold for crowns. but when i first played this game in 2011 it was something very valuable . As it could take weeks to save enough gold to buy a common broomstick.

      I play The Simpsons tapped out which is EA. they actually have donut ( crowns for W101)generating characters and buildings in that game. so there are no crown generating items you can buy in the game. it could easily be put in as they would simply replace gold for crowns. but anyway EA is better than KI although no one is sleazier than Zynga. KI has standards.
