Hey everyone! In the Crown Chest exchange there are a number of resource trade-ins possible and while some like Hoof/Mahra/Sepulcrum are a no-brainer some players may hesitate about 2 exchanges in particular: Whips and Advanced Mahra. So in this article I ask the question: Is it a good idea to exchange Whips and Advanced Mahra for Crown Chests?
6 Trade-in Possibilities
For 1 chest
For 30 chests
150 Whips for 1 chest
= 4500 Whips for 30 chests
30 Hoofs for 1 chest
= 900 for 30 chests
50 Adv. Mahra for 1 chest
= 1500 Adv. Mahra for 30 chests
50 Adv. Sepulcrum for 1 chest
= 1500 Adv. Sepulcrum for 30 chests
100 Mahra for 1 chest
= 3000 Mahra for 30 chests
100 Sepulcrum for 1 chest
= 3000 Sepulcrum for 30 chests
Mahra/Sepulcrum are really aplenty and people have been throwing them out for a long time, so exchanging these is a no-brainer for most players.
Same applies for Hoofs. In some cases they can be even more plentiful than the Mahra/Sepulcrum. No problem to exchange.
Adv. Sepulcrum is already more difficult to “throw out” for lower BR players but still most active players should be able to trade-in 1500 of them without much issue.
Adv. Mahra however is a harder choice. It is no problem for top BR as they have a lot, but for other players still upgrading their sylphs it could be tough.
Whips are actually one of the oldest resources which are still very useful today because most players still have a long way to go to upgrade their Stables and Magic Mounts. As it is a useful resource we also have to consider this one.
So how do we decide? Well let’s look at what we would get for 30 chests and see if the expected rewards are worth 1500 Adv. Mahra or 4500 Whips:
Quantity Expectations for 30 Chests
About 10 Blue Pouches
About 16 Sylph Soul Orbs
About 45 Clothing Refinement Stones
About 90 Smelting Stones
About 56 Polishing Orbs
About 45 Cast Stones
About 9 Essences of Zeus
Looking at this list I would say most amounts are negligible and I only see maybe 3 items as OK-amounts, i.e. 90 Smelting Stones, 45 Cast Stones and 45 Clothing Refinement Stones. Are these amounts worth 1500 Advanced Mahra or 4500 Mount Training Whips? I think not.
There are only 2 things which can shake this judgement.
If you are close to collecting a Rare Item drop and this is the only way to do it. Which could be an extra 40 Polishing Orbs for example. But then again even with this extra amount I’d say it is still not worth it.
And 2nd, which is I guess the main tough point – is if you think you might get lucky to win one of the mounts with 30 or 60 chests. But that’s a rather high price to pay. The chances are certainly against it as the mounts have zero point something percent chance of dropping – probably 1 in a 1000. But on the other hand if one does not participate then the chances are certainly zero.
