25 Black Lion Keys: 1560 Gems, 50% off. No sale on any amount lower than that.

Fine Transmutation Stones: 5 for 120 gems, 10 for 215 gems, 25 for 480 gems. 40% off.

Black Lion Merchant Express: 5 for 50 gems. 60% off.

Discuss value, bargain, etc.

The stones are a nice sale, though I already have close to a hundred from just various alts, key drops, and the sort. Still 40% on a very useful item that never really loses value is always a good deal.

I've never found use for the express items, its not like LA is far and even in the Fractals you're given a hub every few levels. But, at 60% off, its probably nice for the people who do buy them and there are a lot from what experience has shown me since people drop these things all over the place.

Keys... pass.

So far so good, 2/3 are (mostly) useful not RNG crap. I have high hopes for the rest of the weekend.

Black lion keys still way overpriced just up the drop rate so you get say 1 key for every 2 or 3 chests
Do a higher drop rate in elite areas.

Fine transmutation stones, these drop in the game and its not as if you will be using these on a daily basis so not buying them.

Black lion merchant express, I have zero use for these and have a couple that dropped.

If they do
50% off a character slot I will buy 2
50% off Storage will buy at least 1

Why would anyone consider buying anything from the store with the game in it's current state?

I'm not buying anything from the store for that reason.  But even if the game weren't on the path it's one, I really find nothing enticing about buying the sale items.

I'm enjoying the game tremendously and have already invested $300.

If you don't enjoy the game, then just quit. Not sure why you're still on guru, either.

This is a thread about discussing the items on sale and their deal value, not about the state of the game. We have a thread for that, go seek the satisfaction of your attention craving there.

Bet you they will sell dyes, chests and mini packs for sale next. They really get their rocks off with this RNG stuff.

Anyway, if bank slots go on sale then I might be tempted but I'm refraining for other reasons. Fine transmutation stones might be worth it for me since they never drop from chests, map completions or otherwise. How are people getting so many of them?

Really hoping character slots go on sale. I already have one for each class, but I am a shameful alt lover.

This. I have more than I could ever use and haven't bought a single one.

I am fairly certain I got them all from black lion chests, I open one whenever I get a key.
ok apologise if this is off topic I have a helpeful personality.

I do not think they will put any sales on bank/ bag or character slots. They want people to buy repeatable items. Keys, chests, dyes, minis. Transmute stones, forge stones etc . They make more money off people buying these over and over verses a one time bank or bag slot purchase. I hope i am proved wrong thats why I am holding out.
