    Baldrick,

    Maybe ask your ruby whale friends if they have max lvl for premium account.

    It could probably be the trigger (none in my alliance have lvl 10 premium account and as far as i know, no one got the offer either) for this offer for supporting the unpopular premium account updates?

    That is possible...

    Yes Baldricks info is legit. Ive seen treasure troves along with Treasure Chests that offer those kinds of Bonuses. It does make sense for GGE to give them to the Ruby Buyers because that is GGE's main source of income and the more Ruby Buyers "donate" to GGE, the better ingame items they receive as long as those ruby buyers keep making large "donations", hence giving them a huge advantage over us non ruby buyers.

    We're not talking about ruby buyers here, thousands and thousands of players buy rubies, me included and don't have the offer. I also know level 10 premium players who have not received the offer, so although that is a decent idea as to how the selections are worked out, I don't think it is true.

    I think it has to do with overall account spend.

    Anyone know what triggers this chest? Is it random or do you get from hitting RBC's like a treasure trove??

    I'm max premium but still never saw this just curious.

    It's an exclusive offer only given to the biggest spenders. I know some serious spenders and most of them have not received this offer.

    I would guess that it's less than 10 players on each server. Just a guess.

    No, this thread is referring to very specific pieces of equipment, that were only offered to a handful of ruby whales, that have bonuses that far exceed anything you can get from maxing out equipment at the technicus. There were screenshots posted showing the in-game pictures of the equipment, and it has almost maxed out bonuses without being upgraded at the technicus.

    This is current state of the art armor, but currently offered in game without ruby offers:

    For a commander... (+16, +16, +16, +16, 2 are unique and the set bonus is 40% ranged)

    84.8% melee, 88.6% ranged
    23.4% wall, 21.8% moat
    44.8% later detect, 72% travel speed

    .......................

    Here are the super set bonuses from the commander ruby offer:

    90% melee, 90% ranged
    120% wall, 80% moat
    80% spd, 70% later detect, 45% glory

    ......................

    I posted this to make a comparison between what is available through normal means and what is offered with the special ruby purchase.

    I don't have as much issue with the commander armor as I do with the castellan armor. At least the commander armor doesn't have -120% gate reduction too. However, the castellan armor in the ruby offer is completely ridiculous. It has NO weakness on it.

    Here is a recap of that armor:

    90% melee, 90% ranged
    80% moat, 90% gate, 118% wall
    70% early warning, 45% glory
    4/23/2014: GGS realizes that this player and customer won't drink the kool-aid.

    **the rule of 3** GGS usually gets it right on the 3rd try. Be patient.

    Be careful if you speak the truth, your post might get deleted by a moderator.

    Hi guys,

    With regards to some of the comments here........


    Maybe i've misunderstood by what you mean by "available in the game". if they are not available then how did they get them?


    They are technically available to anyone, they are just very, very rare.


    All the information i have is that it is a random offer. Therefore the offer could be made to everyone/anyone.



    No, because to my knowledge no single piece of equipment like that exists.


    It is all done in game.


    Where did you get that idea from? Screenshots are welcome.


    Well, given that we currently only have one moderator and he hasn't been around much I can understand your post. How about a Community Manager?


    What's you point? Many companies offer incentives to get customers to come back or to keep them loyal.


    What exactly would be wrong with that if it were the case?

    GGS have always stated that everything is available to everyone with some hard work and some rubies, but this seems to be the exception. These items are NOT available in the game.
    Technically that changed some time ago when there we introduced things like the special decoration that you could only get with a first ruby purchase, or the ruby mine.


    Nobody is forced to pay and therefore no it does not.


    Ageed.


    Well, since we don't know everything immediately sometimes we have to go gather some information.

    Regards,
    Ethan

    thanks CM Malreyn for the info cuz I also heard by a few guys these eqp can only be purchased with 1mil rubies and then 1mil rubies needed to upgrade them

    Incorrect, the offer is not given through attacking RBC's, it is only given through messages to specific people.

    Are those messages completely random? I think I see even semi big ruby buyers with the equips so I don't think you need to be a giant spender to have them.

    The new eventdom should provide some new unique equipment. I hope they buff it.... Maybe not to point where they're the same strength of the OP equipment but closer than what the elite players have now.... :D That would provide a lot of incentive to do well in the new eventdom!

    All the people that have confirmed that they received the offer, said they received it through a message, not through RBC's.
