This new Strange Carved Box or also known as 'the special shop'' is introduced in the latest patch of KMS.
The Strange Carved Box randomly spawns in maps of the Temple of Time.
If you see one and you click on it, it will send you to a new map.
There you click the box again and it will show you the available goods it sells.
All the items with exception of quest items (Feather Pen & Ink) cost 10,000 meso.
The Strange Carved Box sells the following items:
- Feather Pen (Quest Item)
- Ink (Quest Item)
- Piece of Time
- Mystery Mastery Books
- White Angelic Bless Ring recipe
- Timeless & Reverse Weapon/Armor recipes
- 12 Slot Mine/Herb bag
- Advanced Potential scroll
- Trait items (enhance your traits better than regular trait items)
- Various Transformation buffs (Grey Alien, Gaga, Orange Mushroom etc.)
- Various 60% scrolls (One-Handed for Attack/Magic Attack, Two-Handed for Attack/Magic Attack, Accessory for STR/DEX/INT/LUK, Armor for STR/DEX/INT/LUK, Pet Accessory for STR/DEX/INT/LUK)
- Various recipes for Alchemists
Pretty good, right? There's a catch though...
You are only limited to purchase ONE of each item with the exception of Transformation buffs. (No idea about the various 60% scrolls)
Aside from the one-time purchase, it is possible that these goods can run out of stock. Basically they are sold on a first come first serve basis.
Let's say you found a Strange Carved Box and you see it sells the White Angelic Bless Ring recipe. Your heart skips a beat. As fast as you can, you double-click on the recipe that cost 10,000 meso and a window will pop ups saying that you can only buy this item once. You click OK when it asks you ''Do you want to purchase it right now?'', but then you get another message saying the item has run out of stock.
Your obvious reaction to this
The Strange Carved Box does not sell ALL of these items, the available goods is randomly set. I have no idea when the list changes. I've heard every hour, but maybe it is every 24 hours. I'm not sure on this one.
Problem is the stuff gets sold out really fast.
I found one for like 3-4 hours at Memory Lane 3 ch9, and all the stuff was sold out except for the Zeta Transform.
There was an Armor Luk 60%, a 60 Str blessing potion recipe, hand sanitizer, and reverse bowman glove recipe as well.
All sold out.
What quest are the pen/ink used for?
Sort of reminds me of the random (randy) weapon box from CoD zombies, probably solely because of the massive question mark on it =_=. If only the selection of items was a bit wider, would be great to have Confusion Fragments and Primal Essences in there lol.
