    Has anyone seen any rare colors of these yet? Some have popped with a different pattern than usual. Please post or list any rare colors you have seen so far.

    Ohh, well that makes sense. I am in MTN time zone, so would be after midnight on east coast. Thought I read on UO.com that patch was installed last week. Hmm. Well some funky looking boxes this year.

    I've not tested it yet; are the boxes with hues under 1000 dyable with any of the tubs? If they are, it becomes just 9 colors to collect - 8 rares ones and 1 that can be whatever color you want to dye it.

    OK, I'm confused. I logged into 5 of my characters. All were supposedly given gift boxes. All had the holiday gift text on the screen as I logged in, yet only 2 of my 5 toons have boxes in their packs. More interesting is that I now have an empty backpack on one of my toons PPD's, yet it weighs 4 stones (like there is an imaginary gift box in his pack)...

    You got the invisible one, Scott!
    But to be serious, that's odd and unfortunate. You can have the regular, not special colored ones I got.

    Make sure your client is patched up. Recently i have had the problem when opening another window via client.exe, i dont see new content on that screen. No idea why. But i noticed today that when using it, I do not see the new style boxes.

    We don't have "toons" in UO. That's where your problem comes from.

    Are we going to assume that the Blaze, Glacial, and Ice colors on the square gift boxes are the rare one's again?

    I've not seen any circular or rectangular boxes that look rare thus far.

    Side Note/ P.S. - Buying red color 32 boxes on ATL pictured in @Peekay 's photo above.

    ok this is how this works IMO:

    1. The current hues are more or less the same as the one photo shown by Nails and previous ones and some Tye-dyed combos.
    2. It's the patterns that's making them stand out.
    3. Because black and white have the most contrast they appear to be the more rare and desirable but quantity wise i don't think they are anymore rare than the others.
    4. There are 3 designs (I am only speaking about the new box designs)
    a. regular bow
    b. large bow
    c. cross-shaped bow
    5. so all these hues are possible and in equal chance and each hue has 3 possible bow types.

    Now prove me wrong :)

    I got one of the blue/white rare ones in a rectangle this year. Still 2200 or so chars to check, but I've been getting almost more of the new boxes than the older types.

    @Manticore, my experience last year was that I got 2 abyssal, and none of the white/blue. For the other 6 rare colors, I had at least 10 of each. I heard similar reports from all the folks I trade with, though most of those who got either of them got white/blue, not abyssal. If the colors keep the same rarity as last year, I'd put it at something like 5% chance of a rare color, 0.5% of white/blue, and 0.1% chance of abyssal...

    Also... has anyone checked to see if the ones with hues under 1000 can be dyed?

    Can someone post the 8 colors?

    The ones that Mesanna has identified so far correspond to the rare colors from last year - see Nail's post further up (post #10)

    3 additional rares graphics...

    The old boxes still spawn this year in the "rare" colors too so 24 new rare boxes + 40 old rare boxes for a total of 64 boxes?
