    Yeah, during my three-ish years of playing Mabinogi, my friends and I spent at least a thousand each on Gachapon. While some of that was towards the really crappy Soldier/Fashion gachapon, most of them were in event and Eweca gachapon. Half a thousand $$$ later and the best thing we got was a Scathach Wig. It's a fairly common joke between my friends and I that the gachapon just hates us in general. The sad part is I have some strange gambling addiction because I STILL feel like I can get lucky, but even if I do get the best item, it still won't make up for the fact that I spent so much cash on gachapon.

    1, I think that rate is rather low. I think it's more in the 5-10% range.
    2: Even if you open that many and get one angel fing, you can sell it for 10-20m (especially after gacha poofs). The median of that range is 15m gold which is 86 USD on
     Spoiler
    . You're also guaranteed to get about 5m worth in guarantee tickets (no pun intended). After that you hopefully got SHP champs or enchant training pots to make up the difference.

    Getting one cupid is dicier though, but modern gachas give out lots of things that someone, somewhere will want, soit's easier to break even.

    You should have bought 100 dollars worth in fine reforges and sold them instead.

    At least our experiences with gachapon have taught us that we should never go into a casino?

    Pretty much, though in gacha's case... someone has to do the gacha to get the item. xx

    My guildmate did 50 dollars worth of gacha... he got one red angel, and five different cupids, I think.

    You should go to the casino before gacha'ing then LOL.

    Ive known of people getting a black angel wing in their first few gacha, and others who spend 300$ and get nothing but acc's, gestures and smiley knuckles. Its all luck in the end ;_;
