Last year was so much better. I spent more time in the coli this year and everything, but I got literally 12 chests in the entire fortnight and THREE of them contained the same item.

I would like to mention a quick thread I did. I opened 937 chests and have some statistics.

This is what I learned!

For reference, I put all of my data into a spreadsheet which is viewable here.

Fun Facts/Notes
Highest Cost Chest: 24,000 gold/24 gems
Lowest Cost Chest: 18.5 gold (Sorry to the person who put it up on the AH for 185 gold for 10 total chests, not 185 gems)
Time Spent on Auction House: At least 10 continuous hours
TIme Spent putting this sheet together: 2 Hours
Your average chance of getting a Nocturne Egg is 10%
Your average chance of getting really nothing worthwhile $$-wise is 36.04%
AH Prices were only calculated for items that were really worth gold.
Category: Apparel was 30.2% of the total 86 drops. Familiars was 61.6%. Specialty was 8.1%.
You had a 29.03% chance to get an apparel drop.
You had a 53.90% chance to get a familiar drop.
You had a 17.08% chance to get a specialty drop.
I lost about 785k overall. Yes, I still had fun. No, I'm not angry.
The average real life cost of a chest is $0.23 USD.

Key takeaways:

Yes, I really did spend over 21 million gold on chests.

Your chance of getting a Nocturne Egg is literally 10%.
Stop complaining the event is bugged. It's not.

Suggestions to Site Staff:

I personally don't mind losing gold because I'm a bit more well off than most here... but when fully 36% of items aren't worth more than 2-3 gems, maybe 1500-3000 gold at best - it might make sense to slightly, ever so slightly up the amount you get back OR make the 36% sellable in bulk.
This was a good event, and I had fun. Thanks!
The Blooming Hedgehide is my least favorite familiar.

Thanks for reading, let me know if you have questions!

@Aokuang

Did you happen to calculate the percentage/droprate of non-2018 apparel and familiars versus those of the 2018 sets? The main issue wasn’t eggs or scrolls, for me at least; it was the constant dupe fam/apparel pulls — along with the low chest droprate in general — that made me upset. I checked your spreadsheet and thread but didn’t see numbers for that, aside from probability stats for each individual item, but perhaps I missed them.

I had a good NotN. ?? I had plenty of free time and was able to Coli a ton and take advantage of Swipp and Baldwin.

I can't compare the drop rates of the chests to previous years because I think I didn't really do NotN 2017. I forget if I had zero free time then or what, but I don't remember NotN 2017 at all.


EDIT: It should be noted I opened few chests compared to the ones I sold on the AH.
