    Ghastly Treasure of Diretide - What is point of Opening?

    Keys are worth $2.49 and all items listed will either be on sale in a month in the store. Not to mention, the rare mythical item is Baby Roshan, which can be purchased in the store right now.

    Why is it in anyones interest to random an item out of here with that in mind?

    Every single item from that chest will cost more in-store than a key. The same thing happened with the summer and TI2 chests. That means that if a person prefers to trade on cost rather than rarity, they are getting a great deal this way no matter which item they get. Besides, the mix of heroes might appeal to some people, who would be happy with an item no matter which comes out because of the heroes they play.

    There's also the fact that it includes a chance to gain much more expensive items than the cost of a key, like the Rosh courier you pointed out yourself, or the chance of a holiday-exclusive unusual courier like the summer Sunfires.

    Now sod off, please. We don't need more people whining about chests.

    You get unusual diretide effect couriers.

    Temporary exclusivity to the item, a tag in the description to show it came out of the box, a chance at a special type of unusual, retrieving an item that is worth quite a bit when the chests first arrive, etc, etc. There are plenty of points to opening a chest, and some have more value to some than to others. Just because you don't see a point doesn't mean there isn't a point altogether.
    We've had similar discussions before, not only with the seasonal chests, but also the standard chest, so I'm going to close this.
