We are back with another Testing of Cash items by TEGaming.

This time on Magnifying Glasses again!

Our previous testing results here

This time we come back to the Magnifying Glass because there’s been a recent update regarding the rewards~!

They are more attractive than ever now~!

Check it out below

As you can see, all the apocalypse and manticore equipment in the previous rewards system has been removed, along with all the other level 40 premium enhancement plates EXCEPT for Destruction, Magician and Ultimate

Notable New Addition to the Reward List

This Brilliant Star Fragment Ring can give you up to 4% increase in your elemental attacks.

It comes in 30 days and Permanent Version

They can go up for at least 4000 gold each and up to even 8000 gold across all 4 servers.

I believe most people will use  it if they get the permanent version anyway XD.

Similar to the ring above, this cupid wings come in 30 days and Permanent version.

I was lucky enough to get the permanent one for my Gladiator “SecretSwrd”~!

30 days Cupid wings is worth around 3100CC, that’s around 3 Magnifying Glass worth.

So it isn’t all that bad if you get the 30 days one, it’s still very useful and worthwhile.

Other notable items I feel are:

Most importantly, I think the Gold amount you can get has increased from 250g, 500g to having the chance of getting 1000g and 5000g as well ~!

Getting anything above 500g would have made the magnifying glass worth it’s cost price but let’s see the odds of getting these items in our testing~!

Testing Set-up:

50 Magnifying Glass on SecretSwrd (Gladiator)

50 Magnifying Glass on Lyzbeth (Elestra)

Here are our results:

Results

Total Gold Received:

250g (25),

500g (12),

1000g (1), 5000g (1):

Grand Total: 15750  gold

Notable Items Received: Pink Cupid Wings (Permanent), Brilliant Star Fragment Ring (30 Days) x3

Sun Spark: 750 (worth 50s each, if NPC will generate 325G without VIP Ticket)

You can see that the amount of gold I’ve received in 50 Magnifying glass is just O_O.

Even if you take away the lucky 5000g I’ve received, it’s still a whooping 10750 Gold received

However let’s see if it’s really worth while yeah in terms of CC to Gold Ratio.

We take one of the hottest items, which is Item Protection Magic Jelly which was costing around 2000g per stack when I did this testing.

50 Magnifying Glass costs 53000CC, 1 stack of 100 Jellies cost 6800CC

With 53000CC we can buy 7.794 stacks of Jellies.

We take each stack of Jellies to be sold at 2k Gold each (7.794×2)and we will get 15588 Gold

You can see that 50 Magnifying Glass has yielded us 15750 Gold which is higher than if you actually bought jellies and sold them instead

Know that the above amount will vary in terms of the server you’re at.

This is excluding the fact that the pink cupid wings received can be Sold in the Trading house at 5000 gold and above.

The improved magnifying glass rewards is definitely alot alot better and I believe it’s popularity in the trading house recently must be a reflect of the results stated here as well, whereby people using them can actually feel that they actually do give alot alot of gold while still giving items that are worth using yourself, or able to be sold to other players.

Now I was pretty unlucky to have received three 30 days Brilliant Star Fragment Ring, if I had received a permanent one, then it will definitely add to my tally of awesome rewards from this experience.

After reading this, skeptics might say that 50 Magnifying glass is not a good representation of what others might experience when they use the glass, so let’s take a look at Lyzbeth’s experience.

Lyzbeth’s 50 Magnifying Glass Rewards Result

She didn’t manage to get the exact sequence for the items but here’s a table and chart of what she received.

  1. 250g (13)
  2. 500g (12)
  3. 1000g (1)
  4. 150 Sun Spark
  5. 350 Comet Dust (2)
  6. 1000 Comet Dust (2)
  7. Level 40 Premium Magician Plate (2)
  8. Goddess Teardrop x10 (5)
  9. Incomplete Seal Stamp x 100 (1)
  10. Revival Apple Juice (1)
  11. Level 40 High Grade Spiral Code Pouch (1)
  12. Level 40 High Grade Vortex Code Pouch (1)
  13. Level 40 General Grade Spiral Code Pouch (1)
  14. Intermediate Revert Cube (Epic) x2 (2)
  15. Intermediate Diamond Code (Epic) x2 (1)
  16. 30 days Bunny Tail (1)
  17. 30 days Bunny Headband (2)
  18. 30 days Pink Cupid wings (1)

Total Gold Received:

250g (13), 500g (12), 1000g (1)

Grand Total: 10250 Gold

Notable Items: Level 40 High Grade Spiral Code Pouch, Level 40 High Grade Vortex Code Pouch, 30 days Pink Cupid Wings

As you can see, this is the flip side of the magnifying glass rewards.

The first experience I will say is the average-positive one but let’s take a look at this less-positive experience.

Gold received is still a whooping 10250 Gold, though we know that it’s not worth the CC you spend on the Glasses. (Worth around 15.5k Gold according to above)

Usually for gambling it’s usually close to a all-or-nothing scenario  but the new rewards for the magnifying glass I will dare say can at least give you 70% of your spending in return even if you’re down on luck!

And well if you get lucky, you will definitely be rewarded with more than 100% of what you have spent.

What is positive however no matter your luck is that receiving Gold is always taking up at least 50% of the chance you will be receiving as a reward for the Magnifying Glass~!

I will say that the 2nd batch of 50 magnifying glass testing will actually be extremely useful to a new player who started out in the game as those High Grade Spiral/Vortex Code pouches will definitely be useful to him.

And if you don’t see yourself using those, you can still try your luck and open them yourself and hope to get something useful :)

———————————————————————

Verdict

All in all, I will definitely say that the new-improved [Event] Spurcing Up the Magniyque Chest Bonuses! is definitely much more worthwhile to gamble with especially when compared to Altea Gacha Boxes.

For those who are using this opportunity to sell Magnifying Glass for Gold in the Trading house, I believe this result testing should give you a better idea on how you should want to price them.

For myself, I always wanted to get a pair of permanent movement speed wings for my Alternate Character “SecretSwrd” which was why I used the magnifying glasses on this character, and well, I was rewarded :)

So if you’re looking to get movement speed wings that are permanent, I believe it’s better to try with the Magnifying Glass compared to Altea Gacha Boxes, because even if you don’t get 1, you be sure you can afford one after you use at least magnifying glasses.

We all know how many of us have used hundreds of altea gacha box and not be rewarded with any notable cash items @_@ (me being one of them of course)

And those going for Gacha Boxes now, they are usually going for the Magnificent Black Wings but I think we all know by now (simply by looking around), that the odds of receiving that is extremely low.

If you’re aiming for the Crimson Thunder Horse via the Magnifying glass, my advice is that it ‘s not going to be easy and more importantly not advised to do so due to it’s low chance of getting as a reward.

I believe CC side can’t set the chance for the horse to be too high as it is not tradeable (meaning can’t be sold on Trading House). Imagine the QQ we will be hearing if you get more than 1 horse @_@ if the odds of getting them is too high. It will also be unfair to players who have tried to use gacha boxes to get them in the past if the rate is set too high. So I believe that the rate of the Crimson Thunder Horse is just right since I’ve not gotten them in using 100 Magnifying glasses.

Also note that the chance to get Normal Grade Items such as Goddess Teardrop and Incomplete Seal Stamp seems to set pretty way low so you need not worry about getting too many items that you can’t sell or use.

Goddess Teardrop for my alternate character is actually extremely useful as I got myself the Fantastic 4, an cosmetic item you can use to give your weapon a nice shining glow with pretty stars twirling around it

It costs 50 Goddess Teardrop to purchase it from Merchant Pero which is why I recommend using these magnifying glasses on a character that is relatively new for you.

You can also use Goddess  Teardrops to exchange for epic powders/essences needed for suffix crafting (1:1 Exchange).

All in all, I believe the new rewards system is well thought out by Cherry Credits side in terms of providing a positive experience for players who use them.

Most importantly, magnifying glasses seems to have lost their “purpose” as their function is used for identifying important “gold” chests in nests or dungeons.

I’ll say use these magnifying glasses in conjunction with their function which is to use them in nests like Archbishop Nests as the chance to get a Ancient Totem Set equipment in those gold chests is actually pretty high (I think it’s at least 1/5 runs in my own experience for the past 3 weeks)

With that I wish everyone all the best of luck if you’re purchasing the magnifying glasses, but remember to use them wisely and not spam use them by running dungeons.

(At least run Level 50 Abyss Mode dungeons which gold chests have a chance to give you a High Grade Epic Code)
