Is it time for black boxes: Series 7? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

It has now been slightly over 3 years since series 6 launched, and historically we got new series reasonably often (Roughly every year or year and a half until series 5, then 3 years until series 6).

I believe it is time to give players a reason to waste spend their PoE on some fancy, new black boxes again, perhaps now with player-suggested rewards?

Potential rewards I'd like to see:
Top-end:
  • A new, fancy familiar! Could be a skeletal version of an existing one we haven't had yet, or it could be a black-colored familiar we haven't seen yet: Spider, Lobster, Serpent, Dragon? Or, "breaking the rules", even a monkey or parrot?
  • Black pet! We haven't seen the regular fox, a sea otter, or a wolverine (Untradable reward, could get people to drop some good PoE on it if they want it?) in black yet!


I'm sure others have ideas and thoughts too, if you have ideas, throw some in there too, if you like the idea of seeing new black boxes!
High-end:
Recycle of some black pets that have shown up many years ago:
  • Pony
  • Big Dog
  • Jaguar / other big cat
  • Elephant

Recycle of some black furniture that showed up in old black boxes:
  • Poker table
  • Painted chest
  • Maybe some new ones too?

I think Skeleton Dragon would make the most sense here. I definitely +1 the post and the Black Yeti/Wolverine

I mean, everyone love those boxes and it is kinda addictive to keep clicking on that buy black box button.

It is a good way to keep us entertained and sink some PoE in the process. And since we are talking about "breaking the rules"... why not a skeleton pet?

Something I would really like added is an ability to bring back Antediluvian Conch as a prize, can possibly make it more rare than the special familiar I think would be great and raise black box price to 15k or 20k.
