There’s a brand new mystery box and mystery egg feature. It’s hard to get used to the changes. I tried the new feature out this afternoon, and think it has both good and bad points.
One of the negative points is that the feature has added more clutter to the playing screen.
By clicking the new button, you can look at all your mystery items (unfortunately, the names of the items aren’t included). I think it’s a plus that we can see how many items of certain sets that we’re missing.
You can buy mystery boxes/eggs from the new screen or from the store. Purchases from the store will also pull up the new screen. For buying 3 or 10 gold boxes, you’ll receive free boxes with your purchase. That’s a nice new feature (though I’ll miss my old method of buying six boxes at a time)!
Our pets can’t open the boxes/eggs by themselves anymore. Now you can only open boxes and eggs through this mystery egg/box screen. The mystery items you open will appear on the left side of the screen. Unfortunately, the name of the mystery items are nowhere to be found while opening boxes. While you can brag about or gift the new item, you can’t sell the item. I think a selling feature would be far more useful than bragging (a feature I’ll never use)!
I bought a bunch of mystery boxes today, and I didn’t find a single item that re-sold for 999 coins! I think that trying to find new mystery items is near impossible, and I’m really sad that the probability of finding junk is so so much higher than finding valuable items. I don’t think mystery box hunting is nearly as much fun as it used to be. 😦
Well, here’s my summary of positive and negative points for the new mystery item feature.
Ability to see all mystery items classified in one screen
Bonuses when purchasing certain quantities of boxes/eggs
Finding new or valuable items is nearly impossible after the update
Mystery item names are not available in the list or after opening a box/egg (how will we find new items in our inventory if we don’t know their names?)
Inability to sell new or old mystery items through this feature (it would be great to be able to sell duplicate mystery items easily)
New icon adds more clutter on the playing screen
Pets are not involved in opening boxes/eggs
Feature would be more useful if incorporated into the inventory chests, so that we could find and interact with items from a certain set, instead of just viewing them.
I used to love opening mystery boxes, but these updates took the fun out of opening mystery boxes. Momo lost far more coins than usual, and didn’t find any nice items today.
What do you think?
