Arena Stamina Refill Build with Powercards Now! 12/13

Powercards will build Arena Stamina Refills Limited Time

Each Refill will cost 16 Powercards

For 80 Powercards, I got 5 Arena Stamina Refills

High Rollers Pack: Golden Armor: Wireless Security System 12/13

The loot items aren't that great, the prices are really not that great. An awful lot of people must be buying up everything Zynga has been bundling, because they just keep adding more bundled up crap.

High Rollers' Pack: 
Highest  Stat item is the AC-Nexus at [229/240] you will get *one* of those. That is the best part of the deal.  Yes, it *is* less expensive than buying each item separately, if you were going to do that in the first place.

Golden Armor, a Bargain for the entire Family: No thanks 

Collector's Edition Wireless Security System: No Thanks

I don't think these numbers will hold very long, there will be a higher loot item in 14-21 days and this one will be useless as well.

Collector's Edition Item & Collectible Stat Cards 12/11

Say Cheese, weapon [241/241] from Escapist Collectible Stat Cards

To gain a little perspective on the recent Epic Item Rush and how great are these stats on the Say Cheese in a Collectible stat card item, I looked back at Warpath Collectable Stat Cards Sept 17  the item available there was an Archer, henchmen [230/230]
I suppose if you are really into these cards, and you are getting one item for every, how ever many cards one has to buy to get this item, these numbers are good.  But they're not worth it to me to toss a bunch of cash at. 

Grey Rhea Collector's Edition Item

If you're up to spending 46 Reward Points for *one* animal, you go right on ahead. I'll be back here watching. I'm opting out of spending any more than what I do on VIP, and maybe the 2x Global Property Builds
