I wish it was like old times, before the days of tokens for everything and where cool rare items where found in chests. These days I dont have any incentive to buy plat or chests much anymore. The dragon pets are nice, but the one in a million chance or whatever insanely low drop rate its set at makes me not even care. I think tokens have had a negative impact on this game. I know its slightly off topic, but getting event fashions, mounts, novelty items and such was THE REASON double plat events where exciting. Now days, its just meh. You can use in-game gold for pretty everything and with the token system theres no hurry so if you still care at a later date whatever you wanted will still be there.
