Guild Wars 2 Tweaks Its Black Lion Chests To Offer More Value
ArenaNet and Guild Wars 2 announced today that they have set out to improve the value of the game’s Black Lion Chest. Beginning today, in addition to at least two random drops and a guaranteed seasonal item, every Black Lion Chest contains a Black Lion Statuette.
Clicking on a statuette will open a vendor window, where you can redeem the item for Black Lion Trading Company goods such as Total Makeover Kits, home instance gathering nodes, a selection of skins, and much more! We’ll update the vendor periodically with some new item choices. This simply means that there is now a way for players to obtain more useful items in the long run by trading in these statuettes. While the more rarer items such as permanent makeover kits are not included, it’s still something in the very least.
Also new in the Gem Store this week is a new Black Lion Garden Plot Deed. Purchasing one will place gardening plots in the player’s home instance to harvest plants of their choosing daily. You can have up to three gardening plots at once. Moreover, you can log in today to claim the latest Customer Appreciation Package. This time, it’s offering everyone 1 free Black Lion Chest Key with a complimentary chest.
