Good afternoon .

My post is about the boss booster, which is found in the SC store .

For 1800 markers, you get one random spawn, which MAY turn out to be a boss .

This is absolutly ridicious, compared to what you can gain out of a 120 mark booster pack .

Not to mention, for 1800 marks, you could possibily buy all the activators in the SC store .

Am I the only one to feel this way, or are their other who share my thoughts/concerns ?

Thank you for reading .

I don't think you read the description of the item very well it gives ALL of the items listed PLUS a random boss spawner.

Plus...they don't want you to spend dungeon marks silly...they want you to look at that price and say..."I'll just pay the $10 instead."

INCORRECT.  Screenshot below .. as it says exactly what the OP stated:

Activating this item will give you 1 (ONE) random boss spawner.  Does not say "you'll get everything PLUS one".  Tell me then where it states what you posted.

ADD:  If you are inferring that it gives all and then the boss spawner, then the description is NOT clear (looking at where it states "Creates items".  I can still see where it can be confusing just looking at the description, so the comment the OP gave is still valid.

While that may be true, that item is not available for purchase by SC only dungeon marks.

Yup, which to some can be very annoying (some like to just drop cash and not go through the grind for tokens).

It says it gives a random boss spawner, BELOW that it says creates items NONE OF THOSE ITEMS LISTED ARE BOSSES, AND YOU KNOW THAT. The description is vague, I did not say the description SAID that it gave the boss PLUS,  I simply tried to clear it up and told the OP what it meant. I could have replaced the word read with understood in my reply still I did not say what you claim I did.

ADD:  If you are inferring that it gives all and then the boss spawner, then the description is NOT clear (looking at where it states "Creates items".  I can still see where it can be confusing just looking at the description, so the comment the OP gave is still valid.

The comment the OP gave is not valid because it was made with a misunderstanding, if the description is not clear then it can be fixed but that is not what the OP posted that it was. Now run along.

Sorry, Lempo, but you're the one that's wrong .

I got ONE spawner, for the 1800 marks, and nothing else .

That is the point of my thread .

No I don't know that, I don't use the DM maker.  I go by what the description said.  I am trying to find out where you get that it gives all plus the boss, OR you saying it gives all that and one being a random boss.

ADD:  If you are inferring that it gives all and then the boss spawner, then the description is NOT clear (looking at where it states "Creates items".  I can still see where it can be confusing just looking at the description, so the comment the OP gave is still valid.

It is valid in the sense you could have bought all those spawners for cheaper and not spend all that marks for a SHOT of a boss and get a gazillion repeats.

*pinches Lempo's cheeks*  Now run along yourself   I think right now people are not understanding what others are implying with that description.

It shows many items below but then states you get a random boss spawner ... but yet you're saying NONE of them are boss spawners ... WT??

Thank you for reading .

I just took it to indicate how the boss/elite spawner was supposed to be extra special.  My only objection to it, is that it's labeled boss spawner, when in reality it is a boss or elite spawner.

It does seem a bit pricey to me, so I've rethought other ways to populate my dungeon.  Plus I keep hoping to get a boss as an extra random bonus from the spawner packs. Hoping...hoping....

Regarding the packs not being able to be bought with station cash, I can't find it but I remember a post saying they looked at it and couldn't do it - I got the impression they didn't want to run afoul of the gambling laws, i.e. no outright purchase of items that involve an element of chance.

Then you should petition it, regardless of what you got, it is entirely out of line with the other items that give multiple ones. Your OP indicated that you were saying no way will i pay that much for that, not I boubght this and only got X, it sounds bugged and reporting it here is not going to get you fixed as fast as a /petition.

I remember a post like that, not sure why that applies though as the LoN booster packs do not guarantee a loot card, I see no difference there.

Funny thing is in his latest interview the one who blows smoke said "We run this game like a casino." lol

I think they are starting to run it like an oil drill, straight into the ground...

The items should be seperated I do see bosses in there after scrolling down the list, the item is clearly bugged, look at the other booster packs, the list of the 1800 appears to list regualr spawners, elite spawners and bosses.

It is probably supposed to give X regular, Y bosses and a chance at 1 elite.

This will be fixed promptly though, everything SC gets immediate attention, if this were an item in game it would be yanked for a few months until someone got around to it.

I made a petition, and received an answer I didn't want to hear ...

In the boss booster pack, you do only get 1 random spawner, for 1800 dungeon marks .

If anyone reads this thread, I sugest you don't purchace the boss booster pack ...

Thank you for your time .

Yea, I've been asking around on channels...and couldn't find anyone who's even planning to buy those.

1800 tokens requires hours of boring grind and there are far better ways of spending tokens than on a random spawner. Which is too bad. I'm already tired of seeing the same bosses over and over in the dungeons.

Thanks for the confirmation.. my husband is saving tokens up for that pack but I'll let him know. If it's not a guaranteed boss spawner then it seems like a waste.. even then (to me) it seems like a waste for just one anyways.

I'd be willing to pay maybe 1k DMs for that pack if you got 5 random non-limited boss spawners. Otherwise I'll content myself with using tier up effects and my three current bosses.

@ Krinte - Anyone looking for a boss spawner, should farm Zek . Though I looted mine ( thanks Ridolain ), in Deathfyst Citadel (sp?), the tool will drop from any orc in the whole zone .

Orc-crushbone ( paladin ) " Emperor Crush "

@ Cyliena - The boss booster gives one ( random ) elite spawner which, may, turn out as a boss spawner . For the 1800 markers, you could probably buy all the hero activators, and single spawners, in the SC store .

I wouldn't mind the price so much if it wasn't for the random factor.  I'm looking for specific mobs out of the pack and have a feeling I'm not going to be able to find them in a hurry.  I'm ok with the elite or boss, that isn't something that matters to me.  I'm trying to get all of the Tunare items and have a feeling I'm gonna get things out of the other packs more frequently than the Tunare one.

As far as it being fixed in a hurry because of SC.  The packs are one of the few DM items that ONLY take DMs.

After purchasing some of the other packs I have maybe a bit better perspective on this pack. If you actually examine the item (link it to a channel then you can examine the whole item) there are elites and bosses in this pack and you can see what each item is.

The other booster packs, have a chance for eilites as well, though it doesn't specifically state it. After about 10 purchases of the boosters, only one elite has come up. That's a bit unlucky but when you randomly pick 5 items out of 40, and say out of those 40 only 2 are elites, the chance that you get an elite is pretty rare. The same goes for the boss pack, if there are 30 spawners, and only 10 are bosses, though you for sure get an elite.

These elites are unique to that specific booster and you are guaranteed one. It's maybe a hair overpriced, but if you examine the items that you can get, it's not that confusing. Unfortunatly the text is confusing and you can't examnie it straight from the window.

I totally agree with the price of the random 1 spawner being 1800... It seems like they should switch the price of the random spawner with the price of the flying mount ( which is 600 )

On the basis of the icons at the bottom of the "Description" window (scroll all the way down) it looks to me like about 1/2 the items in the "Bosses" pack are Bosses (level 54) and 1/2 are Elites (level 52).

In any case, I agree with the OP that it is overpriced.  Nevertheless I have purchased four of them and got three Bosses (Ettin troub, Ettin bruiser, Gorilla) and one Elite (Construct).

I'd pay the 1800 if they would let me choose the boss.

If it was 1800 tokens for the boss of your choice, it migth be worth it. 1800 tokens for a random boss or elite is waaaaay over priced.

I got my Emperor Crush from a random orc in Crushbone. So, another place to farm for the boss spawner SMILEY

Don't know if someone has mentioned it here, or in a different thread, but I got mine from Clefts of Rujark. Don't remember which exact mob, but it was in the Cavern of Training or War Room.

I was grinding there for a few hours over the course of a couple days and got two, so either I got lucky of the drop rate isnt too bad.
