Mystery Boxes Reply to this Post

Mystery boxes are way to similar in colour to the normal boxes you can buy, you need to make it so they are easy to notice, since people could get scammed.

This has been addressed some where else, don't remember where, but by scrolling over the gift it will say something like Mystery Gift... If you do get scammed however be sure to report the player who scammed you.

Unfortunately, you can inscribe boxes with the phrase "Mystery Gift" if you want. Doesn't help that much.

Edit: On the whole, I'd just be suspicious of /anyone/ selling these rather than opening to see if there was something far more valuable inside.

I assume you haven't seen how much some people pay for them.

A unique design would be nice but until then I'd suggest logging onto an alt and comparing what you are buying with what's in the palace shoppe, For example if you're buying ice blue compare it with similar colours like white or light blue. Or if you do get scammed just complain them straight away, it's not like they're going to get away with something like that. Complain the on duty OM and put the scammer's name in the description if they log out.

Alternatively, if a unique design is too much trouble just make the boxes untradable.
