Shadow of the Mad King is packed full of spooky fun, sneaky surprises, and tasty goodies, but there’s one small problem when it comes to grabbing some of the best event items out there– the rarer items that come from the special Halloween Black Lion chests can be extremely rare. Ever since the event began, players have been reporting the amount of rare items obtained from opening the chests, and for most players, the amount’s lower than expected. This is a surprise to many players, especially those who have purchased Gems in order to try their luck with Halloween chests.
Good news, event item hunters– ArenaNet’s planning on changing up the system a bit. Here’s the announcement, which was delivered by Regina Buenaobra, North American Community Team Lead:

Hey, everyone. As mentioned earlier in this thread, the team has taken on board your feedback and concerns.
We’d recommend not throwing away or selling the items you’ve been receiving in the Black Lion Chests, as we’ll be providing ways in which those items can be used to obtain Halloween-related items…
We’ll have further updates when they become available.
Thank you again for all your feedback.
We’ll just have to see what the team comes up with. In the meantime, happy hunting– and haunting!
