My Pain is My Gain

My Pain is My Gain

Oct 12, 2014

Hey Everyone!

The Avalon B.O.X. portion of our farming event is nearing and we have a contest for you!

As much as we hope that we’re successful while farming, oftentimes the bosses aren’t as generous as we would like them to be. That’s why we want you to take a screenshot of the WORST drops you receive while farming in the Avalon B.O.X. at our event!


1. To enter, comment on this post with “My Pain is My Gain,” and attach a screenshot of the worst drop you receive in the Avalon B.O.X.
2. Only one entry per person. You may take multiple screenshots, but only comment once and submit ONE screenshot.
2. Do not post until the Avalon B.O.X. event is completely over. (Unless you won’t be around at the end)
4. Each screenshot must contain you chatting something in both a chat bubble AND the chat box. (That way we know the drops did indeed come from that fight.)


ALL valid entries will receive a fog staff, and both of our tapestries (Tomb of the Nameless and Celestia Base Camp).

1st-Spiral Cup Gauntlet, one pet of choice
2nd-Night Garden, one pet of choice
3rd-Meadows at Dusk, one pet of choice
4th-Meadows at Dusk, one pet of choice
5th-Halloween Pack #2 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks, 5,000 Crowns), one pet of choice
6th-Halloween Pack #2 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks, 5,000 Crowns), one pet of choice
7th-Halloween Pack #2 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks, 5,000 Crowns), one pet of choice
8th-Halloween Pack #3 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks), one pet of choice
9th-Halloween Pack #3 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks), one pet of choice
10th-Halloween Pack #3 (7 Chocolate Pet Snacks), one pet of choice

Pet Code Options:

Arcane Helpers
Betta Fish
Bumble Bee
Night Hawk
Polar Bear Cub
Shaolin Monkey
Snake in a Basket
Trojan Horse

Note: The top finishers will get first priority when choosing their pet. Because of this, you may not get your first choice pet.

This contest starts as soon as the Avalon B.O.X. event ends (10 PM Eastern) and will run until noon (12 PM eastern) on Monday, October 13th.

Please be patient with us in the judging process and sending out the codes.

  • Jeremy Anim

    Is this the last contest of the day

    • mercs101

      Yes it is, good luck.

  • KANE

    I won’t be around tomorrow so can I post a picture now?

    • mercs101

      Yes, we just didn’t want you to post an image and then get a *worse* drop and wish you had waited. When you are sure that your image is your final answer, you can submit.

  • Chris DeathHeart

    Where do we submit the pictures because I won’t be on tomorrow to submit.

    • mercs101

      In a comment to this blog post, just like you did to ask the question, but hit the tiny picture on the bottom left beneath your text to “Upload Image”

  • Elizabeth GoldenThistle

    Is it OK that I posted during the event?

    • mercs101

      Yes, you are just limited to one entry, even if you get something worse later.

  • Alex Nichols

    Quick Question, Am I being declined? cause I posted the first time without the gain quote and then I redid that, but that was not shown either, so if my post with the picture not showing in the comments is it being declined? or is it being submitted but not shown? just wondering cause I have school tomorrow and wont be on my computer to submit the picture

    • mercs101

      Entries will be approved after the contest starts, we did get it and you will be included.

  • kaiwitehfruit

    I have a few questions o: What if you’re muted, BUT took a screenshot of the drops while it was floating above your wizard’s head still (like how it shows right after the battle is over)?

    • mercs101

      You can say any menu chat phrase and that will count, as long as we can still see the chat bubble by your wizard and you have the text box open.

    My Pain, Is My Gain. ^^ <3

  • Vanessa Stormriver

    I’m sorry I didn’t say anything before the drop, but since gold always comes before any other drops and I said something that appears in the chatbox after it, I’m hoping that you can see that I only got 110 gold! I wasn’t thinking about the contest really until I realized that I had just gotten my worst drop ever!

    • mercs101

      We haven’t decided yet! Keep your eyes peeled :)

  • ShadowFSU

    Hey Mercs101 :) Last year you guys did a fog staff egg design contest around April, would you guys happen to be doing that again? I would love to win one.

    • Katherine Light

      We have some plans for contests this Spring! Make sure you check out our post about the Fansite Festival as well.

  • Marcus
