limei: Mystery Box was to poe currency
Mystery Box was to poe currency
The concept with this new Mystery Box was to poe currency build on the success of this earlier-released Chaos & Order Mystery Box. To this end, GGG determined on "another double themed box", this time (obviously) ice and fire. The article begins with a discussion about designing a dual-themed armor set being a struggle that moved through many iterations before the final design was discovered.
How the box would be given out to players was unique and how it was executed in WftA is something that will be included in further mystery boxes moving ahead:
After much discussion, an idea emerged to create it so that you could combine ice and fire microtransactions to the split microtransactions. That served the dual-purpose of becoming equally thematically-appropriate and an intriguing and surprising way to soak up duplicates in the box.
We're excited about the idea and thought it best to keep it a secret at the first launch of the box. We felt the box represented excellent value even without saying that the split microtransactions and that attempting to poe exalted orbs convey it might confuse the statement. We were pleased to leave it as a wonderful surprise for gamers who'd discover that there was added value beyond what they initially open from the boxes. We were also curious to find out what the reception to the blending technology could be, without us having hyped up it with marketing.How to Get Started in the World of Warcraft
