Jewel Vault, B.O.X.E.S. and ho hum…

Finally got around to crafting a Jewel Vault so I could check it out.  I’ve been kind of ho hum about the game so I’ve been slow to post about it and in the slowness I’m quite late mentioning the Five B.O.X.E.S. event that’s been going on for a while now and continues through Sunday, May 14, 2017.

The Jewel Vault ingredients aren’t too bad.  You can get the rubies from the vendor right next to Tashio (from whom you buy the recipe), Aubert Quickhammer in the Shopping District has the reinforced crate if you can’t find one at the Bazaar, a number of treasure card vendors have the required cards.  Since I garden and pick up reagents whenever I see them, the pearls, scrap iron and mist wood were already in my back pack.

You use the Jewel Vault the same way you use the Seed Vault and Gear Vault:  open the housing interface, click on the Jewel Vault and when the move/pick up icons show up, click on the vault icon that appears above them to open the vault.  Once open you get the same tabs as the others have, one for what’s in your back pack, one for what’s in the vault and you can move jewels from one to the other.

The B.O.X.E.S. are located in Wizard City (level 10 and above), Marleybone (level 30 and above), Mooshu (level 40 and ab0ve), Zafaria (level 60 and above) and Avalon (level 80 and above) .  The B.O.X.E.S. have some special drops and vendors with some great recipes for housing items.  Every recipe requires a sonic spring and the only place to get them is in the B.O.X.E.S.

I usually do a few rounds in the WC box to try to collect some of the springs as I have more recipes for some of my wizards than springs with which to craft them.  Since every box has them and WC is the easiest and fastest, I prefer farming there.  If you want to try for some higher level gear, you’d have to take the extra time to farm a B.O.X. appropriate to your level.

I’ve been fairly ho hum for a while about playing the game.  I’ve left my two highest level wizards stuck at Azteca since last September.  Stopped for the Halloween stuff, sidetracked on starting new wizards on a new account to try some theories and update my guide to the game and having read about the tricky final dungeon in Azteca, have been dragging my feet about getting back to it…  Nothing about the increasingly tricky stuff above that level is enticing me and I’ve pretty much decided to just try to get them to level 100 (both now level 92) so I can get the level 100 spells.  I’ll  probably try to get several of the higher level ones I now have to 100 also — I at least have a goal of getting some more far enough through Avalon to get the Plant All spell.

When I do want to play I’ve been slowly bringing some of my lower level wizards along.  They’re at stages where I do it solo instead of opening two accounts and sometimes that’s all I feel like doing…
