I got a gold box as a drop the other day from the 'War Games' Rear Admiral mission. My first one. My ratio now is about 50:1 for lock box to gold box. Saving up to open the gold one. (85 ccreds right now, exhanging dilithium)

I once got a gold lock box on Otha (the ground PvP warzone) of all places. Maybe there?

You've seriously opened 31 GOLD lock boxes, and still haven't received a Galor? That's painful. VERY painful. (Unles you're Cryptic, I suppose)

i only looted 3 gold boxes, got them from shuttle mission in gamma quad, from those swarmers, take hours.

getting Galor seem very unrealisic and far out of my reach.
but i got over 200 green cardi boxes, now i am struggling with bank storage because of loot passing up and i end up getting them or gathered from my solo episode missions.
keys would be nice for "reward" on limited amount and timer for repeating mission for more keys.
waiting for monthly perks for 400C is just very small for +200 boxes.

there had to be a better way than buying the keys.

Sadly, Random Box is Random.

Both in getting one, and in the junk from it when you open it.

I opened 1000 gold boxes and got the following:
Cardassian Galor 18
Cross-faction console 92
Crossfire Tribble 101
Duty Officer Pack 201
Large Commendation Boost 208
Shield Pack 227
Team bonus consumables 153

I opened 201 Duty Officer Packs and received 2 ultra rares (Kel the Retributor and Begra), 18 purples, and 230 blues.

If anyone finds this info helpful and wants to mail a master key to me, it'll encourage me to run these numbers on the green boxes :p

Here is the raw data if anyone cares to see the distribution. Unfortunately I recorded the information in blocks of 23 so its not as helpful as it might be.

On live server, got 0 gold box by myself, rolled on 12, got none.

I bought 140 mystery packages off the exchange since I got nothing in the 100 or so I got by myself doing STFs.

Inside these 140 packages (total cost about 12 millions), I got 3 Gold boxes and inside (3 keys = 3 millions)
I got a Federation Junior Cadre (value 2 millions) and 2 trash rewards.

Then I decided to open green boxes since all my Fleetmates got their Galor out of green ones.

Had to open 18 green (so 18 millions) to get my Galor. And I have 12 spare keys (12 millions).



So to sum it up: I spent 45 millions EC to get the Galor, I still have 12 keys saved for the next series of boxes. Real cost for the ship: 33 millions. and I could have decreased that to 20 if I had opened green boxes since the beginning instead of focusing myself on elusive Gold ones.

I consider you very lucky for this... I opened over twice that and got no Galor, and very little else that was useful. MOSTLY shields. Yay.

Is it just me or has the 19.04 Patch changed the khitomer-farming-point as there after more than 2 hours of farming only dropping green boxes and not one gold box?
