    Heyo!

    Thought I'd make a quick update post to address some confusion with immortal shards that sprang up this weekend relating to the new animation.

    Let's cover how Immortal Kits unlock first before I cover some things people have been confused about:
    1. You right click an immortal shard
    2. The server decides whether or not you've unlocked it based on the unlock chance. This is random. We don't tell you the server's result until the end of the animation.
    3. The animation for the unlock plays.
    4. The result of the unlock is announced/told to you.
    Regardless of what the animation does, the result is decided before the animation begins.

    There was a visual bug this week that caused shards from Monthly Reward Crates to display no unlock NPCs, even though the chance was still there. (The fix for this rolled out today, by the way.)

    I want to address first as well, purchased shards were not affected by this visual glitch.

    We've tweaked the spinner animation to better represent your chance at an unlock visually. Purchased shards should now see 2 unlock NPCs minimum, while monthly shards should see 1 minimum.

    I apologize for any confusion this may have caused, but your chances were never reduced as a result of the new animation.

    If you have any additional questions, let us know!

    Well about time you patched this up... Quiff will be pleased... Though Quiff does have to buy LaakeB the new immortal shard... Heard it might be $50... @Turqmelon Are you going to make the new Ikit in the next update expensive just to annoy Quiff >:D

    Thanks for the update.
    Do you guys publish the Shard Unlock Chance at all ?
    I had a solid stab at the flower Kit on the weekend, purchased 4 of them from the shop (which is a lot of coin) with no joy.
    No issue as I understand your buying a chance, but how high is that chance ?

    And does you chance increase with subsequent purchases ? if not it would sure encourage purchases if it did, and of course that you theplayer were advised of it.
    ie - if you buy one in a given time period (say 30 days) maybe your chance is 1 in 15, you buy a second one its 3 in 10 a third its 5 in 10 etc. and of course if you get lucky that resets.

    @Turqmelon What about the shards that come from the arcane shards? Do they have their specific chances or they have the one of bought one or monthly reward ones?
