I've been thinking the same thing. There must be some way to break this vicious cycle. Happy for everyone with the awesome pulls, but percentage-wise I can't even come close.

I did almost all of my pulls this year via the sealed bags. The ones I did with the rod were pretty disappointing. I'm happy with my results, even though we had no Legendary or Eldrich tokens. It's fun knowing that there is a slight shot at such powerful tokens. I'm changing my position a bit on that, if a number of Legendary tokens could be given away on the Golden Ticket run last year, I think I'm OK with some of them being in the token boxes for the everyone to have a shot at, as long as their percentage is pretty low. I do think that getting a token like that in the draw could spark someone to become a hard-core token buyer to try to get more tokens of similar power.

I actually did well with the rod at the front desk.

58 pulls. 2 rings of heroism a Rays Ring of Remembrance and 6 monster bits. (My overall percentage on bits was around 13%)

My luck with the bags was not good. My sons luck with them was better. A Blessed Redoubt Plate.

The Rods work better at the front desk than at epilogue. Less crowding and a volunteer or two that can help stack as you pull them.

58 uncommons
60 rares
27 bits (5 horns, 7 nuggets, 8 eye, 8 venom)
6 trade goods
4 special (redoubt mail, hero cuff, fallenstar mushroom, and a 5k bar)

we took 1 40 bag and did the rest by wand up front.

I'm no where near y'all, I only get 4 draws per run.

My first run was late afternoon Thursday, Behold Her Majesty Combat.

My first 3 draws were uncommon, mention how disappointed I was then my last draw: Cloak of Blending! My first UR pull.

Second run was Deeperdark Combat Sunday afternoon. Pulled 2 uncommons 1 rare scroll, might have been another rare on the forth.

No monster bits and seems like more uncommons than normal, but the Ur kinda trumps all that.

This was my first year with treasure enhancers, so I had 9-11 pulls per run. Plus, I ran with some newbies who won't be doing TD without me (and the tokens I let them borrow), so they gave me their treasure.

I had 40-50 pulls, and I got 2 monster bits, 2 trade goods, and the rest was about 50/50 uncommons and rares.

Because I like the fun numbers game of treasure pull data, here are my totals:

Total Pulls 129

Relic 1
UR 2
Rare 45
Uncommon 56
Monster Bits 20
Trade Tokens 4
GP (2,500 bar) 1


Notable Items:
Blessed Redoubt Mail
+2 Baton of Focus
Ring of Spell Storing
4 Trade Goods
GP total - 4,100

I had a pretty even mix of bag and wand pulls. I kept totals of bag vs. wand and had a bit better Rare count in the bags, (~15% more) but the other counts were within 10% of each other. So no other noticeable difference in bags vs. wand.

I liked the new wand system (and the bags too). Seemed to go pretty smoothly.

~100 pulls for my group.

3URs (mighty sling, baton, sage lenses)
13 monster bits
2 trade tokens
1 enhanced

So well above average on the special pulls, below average on the bits.

Epilogue box in our first run Thursday night (deeperdark) wielded a boots of the four winds and charm of avarice, just not for the 6 in my group :(

I managed to get 2 50-packs early on. I also got 4 10-packs early Sunday after they had restocked a bit.

I had 163 pulls, some from tokens saved from WYC.
38 monster bits, fairly even
10K GP bar
Enhanced Creeper Amulet
+2 Sling Bullet of Gazebo Slaying
Darkwood Plank
Mystic Silk

All the rest were uncommon/rare from this year's set.

So about 23% monster bits, about 2.5% other (not counting the sling bullet). Nothing really exciting though.

10K bar was from a 50-pack. Creeper Amulet and Darkwood from the other. 21 monster bits between the two bags. The rest were from the 10-packs and box pulls.

I'm sorry, do you mean to say that there were Monster Bits and similar in the 10-packs that were given away for ghost slots?

That would have been EXTREMELY useful information when I chose to take draws over 10-packs.
