I opened my two chests.
A lucky Dharok's helm and a lucky Zamorakian spear.
It's sad to open the chest and insta-delete the items because my bank is filled with resources for levelling.

Your big banner advertisement didn't show this, it showed a flurry of purple things and a pet by the looks of it. Instead, I was given two pieces of trash, let's be frank, they're cheap to buy on the GE and really shouldn't be included in some big promo where people are spending $ for Twitch Prime.

Don't include Lucky Items in the Umbral Chests :/

Sorry to hear that you got manipulated into predatory gambling, but I hope you see now that when something sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true. If stuff like umbral chests always (or even commonly) gave something actually valuable, then they'd quickly become worthless, because when everything is "special", nothing is truly special.

So yeah, just removing the worthless rewards wouldn't fix the problem, because then the leftover rewards would lose their special appeal. Far better to just remove these chests entirely from the game, since they're only used to manipulate people and not to provide real satisfaction.

No support.

Just because you didnt get what you wanted doesnt mean they should make it worse for everyone else.

Also it does say on newspost and on wiki that you can get luckies as it states they hold every super rare,i.e. purple rewards, in them.

Well - technically they're a super rare prize (purple gem reward) - Rare != Good after all. At least see it like this - if you had gotten proteans you wouldn't have cleared that reward slot permanentely. Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2
