    Yeah I am craving one with my name on it but so far no luck :(

    I've gotten all 4 Eodon Tribe Villages though so that's good.

    The only different ones I have gotten are The Remains of Montor, The Port of Buccaneers Den

    the rest are normal :( I tried with good and bad karma characters.

    from what im seeing if you have good karma you get a present - if you have bad karma you get coal.
    then from there its just random to the 30 places.

    EDIT - so i was tracking my karma and it definitely is if you karma is 0 and up you get a present and if your -1 and down you get coal label.

    this one is strange..... you can get this color with all 3 of the metallic dye tubs

    POSSIBLE (because its not listed on previous years but you can dye a box yourself this color with a metallic dye tub????)

    Except this type of box cannot be dyed. :)

    I've been keeping the wiki updated as folks have reported hues. I'm esp curious to see if angels only came in a few hues, or if they too now can be found in hues 2-101. For all angel box collectors, keep in mind, the name of the box will be different, so you'll still be able to tell the difference. @S_S, the wiki pics are all real-size for you to compare. @Poo, I migrated E and F to the wiki;

    So do we have enough angel boxes in yet to safely assume they now come in everything from 2 to 101, just like the other types?

    Once we get a few more angels reported, I'll add angels for 2016 for all 100 of those hues to the wiki chart.

    Yep I've only gotten that one green one so I'd say the Angel Boxes are still pretty rare, but come in all the regular hues now.

    interesting.

    pulled another 2548 and it looks totally different than the other one i have, i even have them on the same shard so i could compare them side by side.
    different box type really messed up these ones so they look nothing alike, eh?
    just at the bottom of the one they look the same.
