The great thunderstruck debacle of 2014 continues

So, I went hunting for the information on this.  More importantly, I went looking to find if TS trees would be a worthy investment.  Sure, right now they are cheap as hell.  It was horrible for the economy and now there are thousands of farm wagons and hundreds of fishing boats.  The ability to profit was shot in the head as the amount of packs delivered doubled overnight.  Pack prices are killed and, well, it's a big mess.

But enough of me complaining and back to the trees.  It was of great concern to me that they may get addicted to the cash shop money and keep the rumbling saplings after the current box is taken out of rotation.  If they kept the saplings out after the box goes away, TS prices will increase and the trees we buy now at 200g will be more like 500g+.  But before I invested into stacks of them, I had to do some research.

The first thing I found was an admission of sorts from Scapes:

He admitted that it was a bad situation and "blah, blah, blah, unexpected.  Blah, blah, blah, XLgames."

Then I found this bad news:

http://forums.archeagegam ... mbling-Archeum-trees

The important part was "Currently, we will be removing the chest with a chance to drop the Rumbling Archeum Tree Sapling per our and XLGAMES' original schedule but are exploring ways to reintroduce it shortly afterwards."  In other words, they will be pulling the box at the end of the month as scheduled.  However, they love the cash flow.  So they will be putting the sapling back in the cash shop "shortly afterwards".

TLDR:  The TS saplings will disappear at the end of the month, but they will return as soon as Trion can put them back in the game.  So investing in TS right now is risky as hell.
