Master Key Sale
 
From now until 10am PST on Monday, January 28th, we are having a 15% off sale on Master Keys. Now is the perfect time to open the new Dominion Lock Box, or that lock box you've been holding on to in your bank.

Huh. I was literally just about to ask if there was going to be a MK sale.

Sweet.

hehe, more cheap keys to add to my stash.

Thanks for the Sale, Cryptic.

So now I take my 15% More Zen Sale Zen, my LTS stipend, and/or my Ultimate Game Cards with Promo Zen I got for Christmas (thanks family and friends) and I buy Master Keys when they are on Sale...

If I'm gonna gamble, I'll do it on the cheap. :D

:cool:

A new Lockbox and another Master Key Sale.

The thing about referring to these as Master Keys, is that they are not "Master Keys", there just keys that are consumed on use.

I know this is a marketing thing, to get money to keep the game running, but I think a revisit on the Item Name is required, it's almost mis-selling.

If it's a "Master Key", it should open ALL Lockboxes and not be consumed.

What should be done, is with each new Lockbox, have a new "Master Key" for that type of Lockbox, and sell a True Master Key for about 2000 Zen, that way you have a key that is not consumed on use and will open all the Lockboxes of that particular type.

Oh and as for Lobi Crystals, there needs to be another way to earn these In Game.

I'm a paying member of the game, so not a F2P expecting something for nothing, just highlighting the clear mistake on call these Master Keys.

Another idea, give you paying members a proper "Master Key" at the start of a Lockbox run that opens all the boxes in the run.

Ya, do this.

I'm surprised that there is another master key sale so soon. I bought a bunch of keys during the holiday sale and have been saving them for the next lockbox to sell at a markup.

But offering a key sale at the same time as a new lockbox means the price doesn't rise as much - the market gets flooded with keys. I hope this doesn't become the new thing to do whenever a new lockbox is released.
