Premium Toolboxes: Good or Bad?

Hello everyone, sorry for the late update...well you know me...
I'm really busy for this year,well it's because of my Thesis, so I'm not that active in GE and with the blog right now. But anyway, I'll try my best to keep you guys updated XD

Miss Hrin mentioned a few days ago in her blog and thru the GE forum about the new Premium Toolboxes. What's inside of the toolboxes? well..you'll be surprise...
Every time you open a toolbox, there's a chance (obviously a small chance) of getting an Elite Recipe depending on what type of Toolbox, it could be an Elite Armor recipe or an Elite Weapon recipe.

The plan of releasing the Premium Toolbox is scheduled on January 31,2008 which is supposively the original scheldule of the release of Tierra De Los Muertos which includes the Baron RNPCs: Kurt Lyndon & Edward Jameson and the new Premium items: Los Toldos Package, Otite perfume & Wheel of Destiny. The new schedule for Tierra De Los Muertos will be on Valentine's Day, Febuary 14,2008. (the scheldule of release might be subject to changes)

Maybe you'll ask me why I put on the title Good or Bad?
It's because this has given mixed reactions in the community, some are opposing this release because they think that it will be pointless to hunt bosses for Elites since you can have the chance of getting an Elite Recipe in the Item Mall and it'll make the rich players more powerful. On the other hand, there are also people who accepts the new premium items with open arms since this can help other players who are unfortunate to get Elites because of their work, time zone differences, etc. and can also drop the selling price (and some overpriced) of Elites that are being sold at the Market Manager.

This can be a dual-edged sword, it can be good, or it can be bad.
But it's still depends on the you if you really want to buy it or just ignore it.

It's all up to you
