EDIT: For the escape from lion's arch event, I highly recommend purchasing "Powerful Potion of Slaying Scarlet's Armies" from the trading post. For just 13 copper you get +10 % damage against and -10% damage from Scarlet armies, as well as +15% experience. I got one event in after I wrote this post and I was absolutely right about getting a lot of crafting materials and high level items! A single run netted me almost 60 alliance supply bags though... so the advice I gave on black lion chests may take additional ArenaNet changes to improve the price.
I just saw this patch note about Escape from Lion's Arch and had to make a post right away:
- For a limited time, every chest also contains a guaranteed stack of 5 Bags of Alliance Supplies.
- There is now a rare chance to get a Mini Marjory Delaqua or Mini Mai Trin from the chest.
- Players should stop by the Gem Store to pick up their free sample of an Experience Booster, a Revive Orb, and a Crafting Booster!
I truly believe that ArenaNet does not want to see their beloved Black Lion Chest sitting at 3 copper. They want it back in the 20-30 copper range I'm sure, and you can expect every patch moving forward to raise the value. Why not invest now while it's dirt cheap?
