Great you get across but the rest of your party is trapped have fun with that.


@Mike - how about this. They are approximitely the same rarity level as an UR. Fair?

I think something is lost in translation/verbiage.

I see it like this:
To me, I spend $1000 and get 4-5 YYs but only 1 ZZ. That makes the ZZ more rare.

When I went back to look more closely I noticed I did not have 4-5 YYs but infact I had (1)A (1)B (1)C and (1)D now I feel that my ZZ is just as rare as the rest.

After that I found there was a F that I was missing and now to me F is more rare than the ZZ, but I do know that I could choose to get (4) F and get 1 and only 1 ZZ with it.

I rest happily knowing ZZ is still more rare because its restricted in access.


Hopefully that explains my view point.

Isn't it if you buy $1000, you get 5-6 URs? I thought I read you get 4 PYPs, 1 random, and the chance of another random UR.

Yeah, see here:

$1K Module/Special Token Order Option

In addition to the 120 10-packs of tokens, you will receive all of the following:

Four (4) Ultra Rare tokens of your choice from either the 2015 or 2014 print runs—mix & match as you like.
1 random 2015 Ultra Rare somewhere in your order
(Also, there is a 20% chance an ADDITIONAL second random Ultra Rare token will appear in your order!)
One (1) signed copies of BOTH modules (shipped after the event is over in November, 2015)
One (1) “1st Tooth of Cavadar” Ultra Rare token - 1st part of a 7-year story arc Transmuted token! (shipped with your order)

You get 4 pick UR and there is a chance at 1 or 2 more. If you go condensed you are guarenteed the 1 with a small chance at the second. If you don't go condensed you run the risk of getting none. Its happend to quite a few folks including myself. But i'll conceed that it technically is 4 solid 2 possible for a total of 6 not the 5 I listed below.
Sweet a combat room, we won't take damage!

It doesn't say that only for condensed - it says you get 4 PYPs, 1 random, plus a 20% chance of another random purp.

For edification sake the chance of an additional purple in your condensed order is exactly the same as your chance of an additional purple in your non-condensed order.

Non condensed orders have 120 packs with a 1% UR insertion.
Condensed orders have the U/R tokens of 120 packs with a 1% UR insertion.

TECHNICALLY both options give you a higher chance than the raw numbers would allow as each set of 120 are pulled contiguously. Were completely random pulls set it would be statistically possible to pull 0 random UR tokens. It would also be possible to pull 5+

That text is a little different from what it says on the actual 1k order page:

http://truedungeon.com/store/products/view/2/5

Assuming a random distribution, your odds in a 1k purchase are roughly (to within a percent):
  • 0 URs - 29%
  • 1 UR - 36%
  • 2 URs - 22%
  • 3 URs - 8.5%
  • 4 URs - 2.5%
  • 5+ URs - < 1/2%

Well - it may not be a change - I'm just pointing out the difference in text in two places on the website.

I assume the goal is at least one UR per $1k order, but the method used to do that (taking token packs sequentially) is subject to misses, so it is best not to promise anything, personally I did a lot of $1k orders in 2014 and always had at least one UR (and two Golden Tickets!)

Two Golden Tickets in every order? :P

It's not a change. It's always been a chance on the random packs and ever since the condensed packs were made they are 80% of the time you'll get 1 UR and 20% of the time you'll get 2 URs. (100% on first and 20% chance on second). I bought in 2012 and ended up buying 3500 dollars worth and got the Golden Ticket on the last pack I opened. No URs in that which is very unlikely statiscially, but can still happen.
