    Its moslty junk. If its unlocked it can not be traded in anymore. So if you dont want the decor chest, dont open it.

    Every chest I ever opened had crap. Stick it on your vendor, then open it to see what is inside. Then you can safely make up your mind
    If it has crap, I would buy it just for the chest.

    Dissappointed, eh?

    This is how goes the love-hate of items on Siege Perilous.

    The gamer wants some new item...The gamer wants that item to be useful...
    The gamer is dissappointed if it is just deco...

    If the gamer finds the item useful, then that gamer finds the item used against him/her.
    Bad item... item is corrupting the game, says the gamer because
    it is not a matter of skill.

    If the Chest of Heirlooms had multiple useful items, would this not be like the
    level six treasure chest or the SOS bottle, or other simular such objects.
    As gamers, we collect these and open them to look inside. You are suppose
    to open these chests!

    So, it is mostly deco...is that bad? Such dissappointment, says the gamer.

    Enough is enough...the developers should never ever place another of this
    type of item on this shard or any shard...

    I think that mentality is starting to change...

    People want to log in and fight against each other in good sport. It's about the fight... not the victory. The few who cry and moan about making items so rare that players dont want to risk even using them have lost ground... especially after PvP on this shard fell apart because players got fed up with the way that system worked.


    PS. I'm really glad they turned the ToTs back on... it's about damn time. Now we need to make sure they keep them on so people (especially new players) have a shot at equipping in decent gear.
