this is getting better. now we are waiting for the shakatu seals to get updated, because the rewards for them is really outdated. also a rework for black spirit adventure ( why not adding a 1 day value pack in the random case with 0.01 chance for exemple
) or a 20 stack with 0.1 chance.

I agree with what CHAJARA said. Some rewards are pretty much outdated. Who would use Jarette's equipment? Not even usable by newcomers.
