4,550 Karma from any Orr vendor.

With 50% karma booster, 5% karma food, 5% karma banner and 20% guild karma buff you make back 2000 – 3000 karma per box opened.

What stuff have you guys got from your boxs?

I spent 900k karma in total (and respending the karma earned through them) and got:

  • 7 Mini Risen Priest of Balthzar’s
  • 1 Charged Potion (Tonic)
  • 74 Obsidian Shards (155k karma value)
  • 50g in Lodestones (selling them straight up because of the crashing price)
  • 5g in Unidentifiable shards.

How do you guys feel about Lodestones now crashing in price because of the easy karma:gold ratio and do you feel the box price should be increased?

Hope you all made bank too!

Well here’s a problem. the guild karma buff only works on dynamic events

@Ascii, how often would you say that you can get a lodestone?

I, for one, am incredibly glad that lodestones are crashing. I’ve been staring down the barrel of 100 Charged Lodestones for my Meteorlogicus for a long time now… at 4g a piece, 400g total, it just didn’t seem possible. So I will certainly be taking advantage of this…

I started with about 150k karma and, respending the karma I got from the boxes, went down to about 0. I didn’t do an exact count, but I did get the Balthazar mini pet, 2 Corrupted Lodestones, 1 Charged Lodestone, 1 Glacial Lodestone, 1 Destroyer Lodestone, and all the unidentifiable shards. Made about 6.5g in total, and that was with keeping the Charged Lodestone for my legendary. I very much hope they don’t hit these boxes with the nerf bat… it gives you something worthwhile to do with your karma once you’ve spent all you need to on Obsidian Shards.

120K karma. Bought 23 boxes IIRC. Got enough karma to get more and more and so on. Ended up buying an opening a total of 51 boxes.

2 onyx lodestones, 7 obby shards, and 76silver worth of the vendor trash item. All in all about 4g.

It works on vials, drops, tastes, jugs, etc.

Bzzzzzt wrong. All karma boosters except outmanned buff affects all karma food.

Also you forgot using 5% karma food, ice cream.

Im pretty sure i did list ice cream…

Maybe one in every 20 ish boxs.

It seems to be a semi-karma gambling thing, But the chances of earning your karmas worth or more is much higher then it should be. You probably had bad luck.

I’d make a joke, but I don’t want an infraction.

It’s a potion that makes you an Earth Elemental, like any of those random tonics out there.

Good.

Lodestones where hard as kitten to effectively work for. And mostly revolved around farming gold to buy them at an ever increasing price. While karma was stacking up and collecting dust.

Now they took karma and gave it a purpose again, and at the same time made lodestones something you can work for. Or atleast more affordable.

The obsidian shards are account bound- what am I supposed to do with them?
Sorry if it is a srupid question.
I guess lodestones are not since you guys are selling them? i only got obi shards and vendor stuff so I have no idea really and no more karma

you can use them for mystic clovers recepies, legendary weapon and some other MF stuff I didn’t tested yet.

Glad to see you can get lodes from them. I got all my clovers and 250 shards for my legendary already so any karma I got would be wasted.

What are “Unidentifiable Objects”? Is this just vendor trash? What are they worth?

They are vendor trash worth about 50 copper each. They add up quick.

Well I bought about 20 of them yesterday and even with no karma boost the return of karma is quite substantial (wonder if ANet nerfs this?). While I did not have luck with charged lodestones I got quite a few of other ones which gave me about 10g profit straight away.

Note: I got all lodes from boxes I bought from temple merchant, normal karma merchant boxes gave me only trash and karma vials.

What I find really interesting is that this allows you to easily move karma from one character to another in the form of the liquid vials.

My main had a ton of karma that she had no use for while I’m saving karma on one of my alts for cultural weapons.
open boxes- store vials in bank, done

I spent 500k karma:

about 1900 karma returned in vials
1 obby shard
the rest “unidentifiable objects”

Nice troll RNG…nice troll indeed
