OK, so Granny finally decided to find some Uber items to sell. Strange thing: the cost of items is MORE than the cost of an Uber Chest (remember an Uber Chest contains at least 1 Uber item… and a heap of other stuff). How does that make sense? Because the item is “not random” (i.e. you can see its stats before purchase), than maybe the SAME cost as an Uber Chest might make sense (i.e. you sacrifice all the other stuff to get exact item). Costing more than an Uber Chest ONLY makes sense if the Granny is offering something you actually really want (theoretically the game SHOULD know what to offer: it can see what you like to wear / collect / forge). But since the items seem to be randomly generated, this is unlikely. Thus, in almost all cases you’re better off buying an Uber Chest (600 gems) or bundle of Uber Chests (5 chests for 1500 gems is a common special offer).
Fundamentally, I think Flare have missed how MOST players use Granny: to buy items to get rid of excess gold (or to buy items for gold to feed blacksmith… if you want to spend gems to feed blacksmith, buy Uber chests!). Also, players starting off should NOT be spending gems in Granny’s shop: you are doing them a disservice in trying to tempt them to do so!!! I for one would prefer if Granny ONLY offered items for Gold: over a range of values: that way when I have an excess 3 million gold, I can just buy the 3 million gold item.
Anyway there a few Granny threads, the recent ones that come to mind:
In the last one, Heroesflorian suggested a poll… so here it is!
Oh: and I’m 9 months… because when I was a young Level 20-something, I was rash and silly.
Poll closes 1/1/2018 00:00 to reduce errors in time periods voters select… so VOTE NOW!!
