    There was, what, 45 days in the event? And the projected odds of getting IX or X, from a sample of probably n=200 or 300 compiled from various forum posts, was something on the order of 0.33%

    So there's a better than 73% chance of not getting either IX or X through the course of the entire event - you're not unlucky

    With one VIP account and one Premium account I was rolling for 3 cards a day per server (8 servers?). So 24 cards per day times at least 30 days (was it really 45 days?) and I rolled exactly ONE card X, but I also had a card X in one of my starting rolls where you got 6 cards I think. Neither one on my main server though.

    hmm,

    Premium only, so only 8 cards / day and no luck at all - some really got lucky, some did not. That´s the way it is.

    You are much more lucky than I. Rolled every day on 4 accounts (friends taking a break, not dummys) and rolled initial rolls on all the other servers. No IX. No X.

    I got two IX and a X early on (in the first 2 or 3 days and rolled every day but got no further ones..

    I'm wondering if it's worth trading them away now or keeping them.

    @ OP, I am pretty sure you were not "incredibly unlucky". You were one of the big group of players that never saw a IX or X card even from the distance. Like me, like many others here.

    The more I wonder when I hear from some people bragging about how many new permanent pots they have - they either got incredibly lucky, had a lot of farming accounts or were very good at trading up to those cards. Or there has been something more sinister going on.

    I got none, though I didn't make up 50 dummy accounts and I wasn't world hopping and so on.

    But a friend did message me at one point and said, hey I have an extra 11, you want? So I still got a flask.

    Nope, the IX and X cards were just extremely rare. I rolled 4 VIP characters every single day and only got 1 X.

    But if you seem to see a lot of trading going on for IX and X cards, that's because for some reason I can't understand, Turbine didn't put cheating very high on their list of things to fix. So players with no morals are getting rewarded in this game every day.

    VIP's got 2 cards per day? I am VIP and I didn't get two cards per day.
