Clarifications on purchases

Thu Oct 13, 2016 8:53 pm

Greetings all,

A lot of the purchases don't make it abundantly clear what exactly you get out of them. For example:
From the moment you start the game you see this in your Daily Quests: "Buy 400 Gems Monthly Card - Reward: 120 Gems". Now that really seems like you get 30 Days of 120 Gems + that 120 Gems First Time bonus as a quest. But, no - those 120 Gems Daily Quest reward is your first Day and you immediately have 29 left. Also wth are the 400 Gems mentioned, they're the VIP XP you get. OK Then, why couldn't it say 30 Day 120 Diamond Cards (400 VIP) Points. Much like the Daily Diamond Ticket card says 3000 VIP Points.

Another example would be purchasing Ezio. It says "Immediately get VIP 1". OK, what do you get if you have VIP 1? You get 80 VIP Points that's what... So why couldn't it say (+80 VIP Points). I'm sure "free" players would figure out they get VIP 1 out of that...

Don't even get me started on Rewards for VIP level. Badly translated and they don't even mention that all these extras (stamina purchases, heroic resets, w/e) exponentially increase in cost.

So I'm planning out my next purchase, but this time I could really use the ACTUAL value of what I'm getting. So here's what I need clarified:
- Ezio 5 Star Pack $49.99 - Would that grant me the VIP Points equivalent to $49.99 of Diamonds?
- Ezio 7 Star Pack $99.99 - Same question. Does that grant 8000 VIP Points?
- 30 days of Daily Diamond Ticket - $29.99 - So I get 1 Diamond Chest Ticket a day + 3000 VIP Points. OK the VIP is nice, BUT I get 1 ticket a day. So, after 9 days, can I use 9 Tickets to Open 10 Diamond Chests? Do they combine in a stack of tickets? Or does it force me to open 1 chest, every time? Cause if that's the case, that's worthless.
- Unrelated, but on a similar topic - If I keep my Gold Chest Tickets, can I open 10 chests with 9 of them? I know if I have 1 ticket, and open 10 chests, it just uses 90k Gold, it doesn't care about that 1 or 2 tickets.

Thanks in advance.

- No
- Also no
- On your first purchase you get 10 tickets immediately plus you draw one from the daily with 29 days left. You can open 10 chests at once, but you need 10 tickets.
- Same as above

Rather concise, but it gets the job done. Thank you Lockhart.

Since my questions were answered, feel free to lock/delete the topic. However, I do think these clarifications need to be added to the FAQ or The Store page altogether. Thanks.

His answer about Ezio is actually incorrect. Buying Ezio soulstone does give VIP xp.
I think I have seen Hengli saying somewhere that it was not the case, but it is. I was vip 12 when I bought ezio soulstones and it increased to 13.

It does not count toward events that require you to buy diamonds though.

Did you buy 5/7 star or both? Cause we're talking about 20000 points gap here. Any idea how far along 12 were you?

I bought both, and both gave me a lot of XP (definitely in the order of tens of thousands)

Sorry, I was going on what I'd read on the forums on that one since I didn't notice an increase in VIP when I bought them. I was VIP14 when I bought all the Ezio stuff and didn't look at my points beforehand, but I was well away from 15. I'd trust Kemosabe on this one.
