I think this offer would/could have been a different story about 6 months ago.
I’ve had the hockey mask and the sword Thirteen, both, in the past. I’ve melted them down, and traded them for other items. Now, what I look for is
- A set of equipment with Skull Perks that I can use during war season
- A set of equipment that has the Pro League Items that will give me the Pro Bonus
Neither of these items fit the bill. They are items that I will typically find in an Uber Chest. They will immediately go into the Blacksmith fire.
So… that leaves us with the other two items, the Pal and the Gems. 3,000 gems for $20 is not bad, but not great either. (500 more gems than what you would normally get for $20).
Then there’s Nidhogg. I don’t have Nidhogg, but he looks pretty cool. I would like to use him on defense, but my alliance is going to need 50 surplus (or 100 total) before that’s even possible. So not much there for me either.
So, in long-winded way, I agree with almost everyone.
I think the best-deal going was that Skull Perks one from a month ago. For guys like me, it gave us a shot (reasonably achievable goal) to get into the game.
