Here’s what’s in Neverwinter’s Cloaked Ascendancy lockboxes
One of the many content chunks and upgrades landing in Neverwinter when Cloaked Ascendancy launches next week is… lockboxes. In fact, PWE put out a new dev blog today on the Many-Starred Lockbox landing on February 21st, taking a page out of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s dog-eared playbook.

Potentially in the lockbox for those who buy keys? The Arcane Whirlwinds legendary mount, the multi-spell Tome of Ascendance, and a number of packs tailored to mounts, artifact equipment, artifacts, companions, enchantments, and costumes, some of which are shown in the gallery below.

But whom are we kidding — you’re never gonna get these.

Further reading: Andrew’s piece on gambling vs. gaming, Larry’s ideas for making lockboxes suck less, and this article telling us to get over them.

I am beginning to feel mildly peeved by the Massively writers’ insistence on framing my article with the phrase “get over it” (or variations thereof), despite the fact that’s not a phrase I ever used in the article nor representative of the tone I was hoping to convey. I’m controversial enough on my own already, Massively, I don’t need the extra help. :P

Sorry, but I can’t tell what you’re tied to that causes you to take umbrage with this article.

Pretty sure the same thing is in these lockboxes as, is in every other lockboxe in every other game..
i.e Hopes, dreams and then sharp realisation of what it cost you followed by overwhelming shame and disappointment as you reveal a pile of crap. And unlike the content of lockboxes, that is pretty much garunteed :)

In any game I’ve bought any RNG boxes I’ve never gotten anything good, even tried fortune cards in Marvel Heroes. :-D

I’ve definitely said this before, but I think we should stop considering updates solely about additional lock boxes being added to cash shops as being newsworthy.

I’d at least give a developer a little props if they had the courage to include that image as one of the ‘rewards.’ Seriously, if things like that were pop-up pictures from these, they’d at least have me laughing! I still wouldn’t buy any, though.
