Avoid this box as long as this thing is bound to character.

after 150 keys and no grand prize - oh well the odds are 1/200

but I now have 182 mining claims that I have to use on the 1 character - so it would take me 182 days!! straight on THIS one character to uses up the mining claims by going out of the way and doing the mining event.

This bound to character item is a bad decision!

I could possibly understand account-bound (although unbound would be preferable)...but character-bound?!?

I generally open any/all boxes on a single character in order to benefit from the accumulation/concentration of lobi, but this development wrecks that notion. I may have to reconsider the whole lockbox program if this is the case.

Research before you buy things in future? It was outlined in italics in the FAQ.

Bind-on-pickup does not explicitly state that it is character-bound. They really should ammend the description to say Character bind-on-pickup

They do, if it's account on pick up it will say it.

Also to the OP.....ummm just transfer all the Dilithium to whoever you want, your mining rights is bound but not the Dilithium you get out of it....most likely the reason it's bound.

So the mining claims that give a BIG, FAT dilithium bonus is bad because it's toon bound ?

The dilithium isn't, so whats the problem ?

To be fair to Cryptic, I don't think they expected someone to buy 150+ Keys... so umm... I'd say you're partially at fault here, at least...

Myself I have yet to buy a single key, and don't plan on doing so anytime in the future. But people might as well quit complaining about them, they're here to stay, because no matter how many posts people make, it's quite clear they sell well and make Cryptic money.
yes don't buy them keys! its exploitation of the fan base! and why oh why do Star Trek fans have to be total dicks with money "me included". i bet 90% of the fans don't care about the money cus its all about "i NEED TO HAVE THAT" factor, well peeps wen this game fails and it will someday, all that virtual "i NEED TO HAVE THAT" items will be GONE! just saying.

I think it sucks that the Jem'Hadar upgrade kits from the Lobi store are bound to character!

I think we need to lose either the character-bind, or the 20 hour cooldown. Having both is a little excessive.
