Instant ascension perhaps? In honor of a Timelord's regeneration? Naw! --Skittius (talk) 00:38, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

  • If it is a DW reference, I'd bet on Void Ship. It would explain why Warbear equipment appeared so late in Crimbo: Warbears are not going away. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 06:45, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
  • The DW reference is from "Power of Three", has anyone tried holding three of these at once since the 25th?--SonofJohn (talk) 19:59, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
    • I remember that one player in the DCDB actually had three of those a few days ago, but the current maximum anyone in the DCDB seems to have is 2. Maybe that player actually used it and told no one, because all he got was the Birdy Song. ;) --Yatsufusa (talk) 03:58, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
      • Jick has stated on the forums we won't know what the black box does until after crimbo is over. — Cool12309 (talk) 05:08, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

The chatter in /hardcore is that only a fixed number of these (37 to 50) ever dropped. I have not seen any hard evidence of that (eg statement from TPTB). There is hard evidence that more than 23 dropped. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 19:30, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

  • While I wouldn't dismiss this completely, a fixed numbers seems rather unlikely after the disaster at Biggs Digg...
    For those who weren't there: In a nutshell all the content got farmed during the first few hours of the event and everyone who didn't log in immediately after rollover was screwed. This led to a notable extension of the originally planned content, both in duration and numbers. Still, those meteoroids are incredibly hard to come by if you want that skill. I'm sure Jick and Co thought of exactly that problematic when they introduced the primer. --Yatsufusa (talk) 01:41, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

It seems likely that I might have missed it, but is there any confirmation that these do or not not drop any longer from the warbear officer requisition boxes? This page says it's very rare, the officer box page says it's no longer available. --Sparksol (t|c) 05:21, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

  • ‎Well, that edit was made by Mojotech. I don't know if he has a source for that or if it is just his assumption. Best you ask him, but to be honest, that drop chance is/was so low that it would be almost impossible to tell for us. --Yatsufusa (talk) 15:59, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
    • It's been confirmed on the radio show. It was a rare drop, but stopped dropping entirely once the 100th got created. --KingBobson (talk) 21:54, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
