Hershel wrote: Hmm... well, guess this puts me decidedly in the minority. I don't like the idea of a slot that can be filled ONLY with a lucky treasure pull. I say lucky because if someone can make 57 pulls and not get one, then pure luck is the only label you CAN give it. This is one of the two items that I have been searching for with little success. After getting 90 boosters, I finally did manage to get a RoDP. I have looked to see if anyone was selling/trading one of these super hard to get shin slot items and had no luck there either.

@Jeff
Please reconsider making shin slot tokens treasure pull only. That is going to all but put them out of reach for folks like me. I am not one of these guys who is getting 500+ treasure pulls. It would take a minor miracle for me to get one at this point. Over the last five years I managed to play TD only four times. I have never gotten anything more valuable than a monster bit from a treasure pull. Please, please, please put them in boosters Jeff, so that us little guys have a better chance of getting one.


The Darkguard Greaves shin slot token is available on the secondary market, for around $10. I have a few for sale, and I think others do as well.

I think the concern may be with the practice going forward rather then the availability of the current greaves.

It sounded as if he had both concerns, he mentioned not being able to find the current item and couldn't find anyone selling them.

Where did you look? I did a quick search and found at least 7 folks selling/trading them when I decided t stop looking. Mike has them, I have them, Kirk has them, galandros, kent, snakeeyes, and mathew. There probably more but those were the first I saw when I searched the forums.

I respectfully disagree. Each year we will have new shin slot tokens, so you'll eventually draw one. It's not a critical slot to have filled at the moment IMO.

I have plenty for sale at www.tdtavern.com , FYI.
My online token shop: www.tdtavern.com

We buy, sell, and trade True Dungeon tokens. We also have a convenient consignment program where you can sell your own tokens.

I'm in the camp that likes the fact they are treasure only. Makes it more interesting. And even if you are unlucky you can pick one up on the secondary market for cheap.

As more are released each year the price for the less desirable one will drop as there is more competition for the slot.

Yeah hmm i didn't assume these things were all that rare. I've got a stack of them I could trade or sell but I figured many other folks did as well. I don't think 'treasure box only' tokens are a big deal. I actually really like the idea of a token out there that that's the primary way to obtain. Yes I realize monster bits fall into that category as well but those are less immediately useful.

I'm a big fan of the treasure box only tokens also. I think it would be neat to have treasure box only variants of tokens, like a different color token back for rares and uncommons mixed in.

I had a similar thought, I was not aware these were considered rare. I have around 4 in 60 pulls

I pulled a couple and just started giving them away to other party members.

they are cool and all but not a strong token.

If you want to get one they should be easy to find.

The Treasure doc has them at being a 2.31% chance of pulling one. I think it is a bit higher than that though because I don't think everyone went back in and added them in after I put them on the doc.
