Well then, that is good news. I do like the idea of having limited time events that make uncommon crafting materials a bit more common. I noticed the same thing with the passiflora flowers in the notes.
Also, if the boxes drop frequently enough, then that is also very good. Not for nothing, but when they say rare drops, I kinda thought they would be rare, like the frequency of rare gear drops.
Well, I take back everything I said. If the RNG isn't atrociously pushing people to go to the gemstore and the gemstore is merely a convenience for people unwilling to do the content, then that is a good step in the right direction.
I may have to log back in and check it out.
