Kings Court Casino is in Shadowhaven on the way to Paludal Caverns (from Nexus). It's the first door just before you go up the stairs on your way from Nexus zone in. open door, turn right, turn left quick, go down stairs for the class-specific token/game NPC and handy banker. Gold Ticket NPC Jacob Thornblade is on the main floor your entered by.


Patch Intro: Shandeling's Roost in Shadowhaven now houses a game of chance. To play you will need to buy a King's Court Token. You then take this token and turn it in to any of the dealers. Based on what your hand turns out to be, you will be awarded a prize. The highest hands will return a gold ticket as the prize. This Ticket can be turned in to win prizes such as a Guise of the Deceiver (not if you are a dark elf), Fungus Covered Great Staff, or Holgresh Elder Beads. Good luck to all that play!

You say, 'Hail, Jacob Thornblade'

Jacob Thornblade says 'Welcome! Welcome to Shandeling's, the gaming hall of chance! The game room is downstairs. If you are lucky enough to get a Gold Ticket, be sure to bring it to me for a spin on the big wheel of prizes! Make sure to tip your waitress well!'

You can buy King's Court Tokens from two merchants nearby.

Note: In order to make sure you can use the item, only give your token to the dealer corresponding to your class. If in doubt, hail the NPC first. Their responses:

Therin Asakith says 'Welcome to Shandeling's Casino! If you would like to try your luck at a game of chance, I can offer you a game of King's Court with prizes best suited for any warrior, monk, or rogue. To play, buy a token from any of the waitresses and hand it to me when ready.'

Gralin Silvertooth says 'Thank you for coming to Shandeling's Casino! If you would like to try your luck at a game of chance, I can offer you a game of King's Court with prizes best suited for any shadow knight, ranger, beastlord, bard, or paladin. To play, buy a token from any of the waitresses and hand it to me when ready.'

Vuri Pandar says 'Welcome to Shandeling's Casino! If you would like to try your luck at a game of chance, I can offer you a game of King's Court with prizes best suited for any druid, shaman, or cleric. To play, buy a token from any of the waitresses and hand it to me when ready.'

Tirac Goldbender says 'Welcome to Shandeling's Casino! If you would like to try your luck at a game of chance, I can offer you a game of King's Court with prizes best suited for any wizard, necromancer, magician, or enchanter. To play, buy a token from any of the waitresses and hand it to me when ready.'

Turn in your token, and in return you can receive a variety of things based upon which item you don't have already:

Nothing (common)
Stat Food (common; the better the stats, the higher the rarity)
More Tokens (range from 2 to 25+ - uncommon)
Fireworks (uncommon)
Gems (rare)
Potions (illusions, various effects - very rare)
Minor Stat Items (very rare)
Gold Ticket (ultra rare)

Should you be lucky enough to snag a Gold Ticket, turn it into Jacob Thornblade upstairs for what is typically a very nice reward.

Upon turning in a gold ticket, a shout is heard across the zone:

Jacob Thornblade shouts 'Ladies and Gentlemen gather around, as our brave _____ is turning in his Golden Ticket for a chance at the big time! With a spin of the wheel let us determine the prize. Ladies and gentlemen, the [race] wins a [prize]. Everyone please congratulate _____ on this excellent luck!'

Note: says "his" even when a female character does the turn in.

If you already have all the items you will see him say this when you try to hand in a gold ticket.

Jacob Thornblade says 'I am sorry, but at the moment our great wheel of prizes is not spinning! Could you try again in a few moments while I try to fix the jam? Thanks!'

Playing around with the casino and gold ticket turn ins for some alts...

At some point they "fixed" the gold ticket turn in process. You now always one of the 8 items that you do not have (7 if you are a Dark Elf naturally because DEs still cannot get Guise of Deceiver). It used to be that it would "roll" and pick one of the 8 items. If you did not have it, you got it. If you already had it, you got a message that the wheel wasn't working and try again...and you would have to turn in the gold ticket again...which could lead to a lot of turn ins when trying for the last item of the 8 you needed.

Not sure when it was fixed, but it is (at least on Xegony).

After 16 years of playing eq, I actually for the first time ever, tried the King's Court Casino, on May 1st thru 3rd of 2015

Spent 70,000 plat on 700 tokens. I bought them 100 at a time. My results follow:

??? Tokens (Re-spent to many of them before I thought to keep track of how many I won. It was a lot tho)
392 Vegetable Stew
77 Herb Stew
2 King's Court Stew
3 Wheat Bread
1 Sweet Bread
21 Gnomish Fireworks
2 Deluxe Sewing Kits
1 Philter of Major Translocation
2 Essence of Troll
2 Essence of Dark Elf
2 Essence of Iksar
2 Essence of Vah Shir
1 Essence of Wood Elf
1 Essence of Barbarian
1 Essence of assling
1 Essence of Human
1 Essence of Eruidite
1 Essence of Ogre
4 Crushed Flame Emeralds
3 Crushed Opals
3 Chipped Onyx Sapphires
2 Crushed Lava Rubies
1 Jaundice Gem
1 Crushed Onyx Sapphire
1 Black Marble

0 as in ZERO Golden Tickets

So what started out as an interesting endeavor to explore a part of eq I had never experienced, in the end, turned into backpacks of crapola.

To paraphrase Sheldon Cooper of Big Bang Theory when his WoW account was hacked, "It's almost as if it was a complete waste of time." lol

So I then decided to use the loyalty route and bought 3 Golden Tickets. My "rewards" were:

Holgresh Beads (what a pos item for the cost of a golden ticket)
Scimitar of the Mistwalker
Rubicite Brestplate

What I was hoping for was the Guise of the Deceiver and the Glowing Black Drum. I got skunked out on both. (sigh)

I knew my luck has always been horrible, but these results really suck! My curiosity about the casino has been satisfied. It sucks as well. No casino graphics, just the usual stationary npc accepting the continuous clicks, clicks, clicks etc etc etc

My recommendation is to stay as far away from this eq scam as is humanly possible. Unless your curiosity, like mine, gets the best of you.

It's called gambling for a reason. Sometimes you win big, sometimes you win small, and sometimes you lose. The whole purpose of casino was to drain plat from the game and restore some sort of balance to the economy. Even back when Luclin was released the economies of the servers were already going to ****. There was too much money in game and not enough ways to remove it. Players were accumulating millions and millions of plat and prices were suffering. The lottery tickets gave them a chance to acquire hard or impossible to get items simply by risking some of that money, which they could easily afford to do with the mountains of money they were sitting on.

Oh, and the alternative, setting up a vendor that sold rare items to anyone with the money would have been just as bad. Then you would have had a flood of gear (that wouldn't really be rare anymore) instead of a flood of plat which would have screwed up the economy in the other direction. Too much gear, not enough plat as opposed to too much plat, not enough gear. In the first scenario, prices fall to nothing as sellers desperate for money try to unload all their stuff at fire sale prices. In the second, you get sellers demanding huge sums of money for even easy to get items because they know the money is out there to pay the asking price. Buyers market vs sellers market. Both are equally bad for the long term health of a game. Both buyers and sellers need to feel like they are being treated fairly in transactions or people will stop playing.

Guise of the Deceiver (& Being a Dark Elf)
# Oct 01 2014 at 5:41 PM Rating: Decent
(Getting a Guise of the Deceiver) I can confirm that if you are a Dark Elf, you cannot win one (with a gold ticket) from the casino. Tried over 1000 times to turn in the last gold ticket, nada.

Switched race to Gnome, and got it almost immediately.

The Fungus staff still drops but is very rare. No joke that I turned in the ticket 415 times and then got the staff.

Best way to get a ticket now is to just buy them with loyalty tokens, about 3 months worth with full loyalty velocity, or buy one in bazaar from someone. Trying to get via tokens probably will cost much, much more.

Just FYI, the fungus staff does NOT drop anymore. What now drops in its place is a "Fungi" covered great staff. The difference is that the original fungus staff was clickable by anyone, the fungi staff works as intended only for the appropriate classes. What drops now is the nerfed version.

The original poster is correct as of today - it is the Fungus and not the Fungi staff that you get. I purchased a total of 9 Gold Tickets using Crowns, and turned them in, getting (on a new level 1 enchanter alt):
Fungus Covered Great Staff
Holgresh Elder Beads
Rubicite Breastplate
Scimitar of the Mistwalker
Ton Po's Bo Stick of Understanding
Vibrating Gauntlets of Infuse
Glowing Black Drum (item I was after for this new toon)
Guise of the Deceiver

I proceeded to turn in the 9th ticket a total of 100 times, since I figured 100 turn ins would be a good number, and got nothing but the ticket back.
I feel rather safe saying that you do not, in fact, get the Fungi staff, nor the Vibrating Hammer of Infuse (as has been suggested on the Gold Ticket page).

I know this is old but the hammer is from the gauntlets, so technically you can win it if you right click the gauntlets. Granted its not won by the ticket it is still won as it requires a item won by the ticket to get the item. If that makes sense lol
more tokens

just thought i would add in that you can win up to at least 30 tokens back. has happened to me multiple times including today

alot of these posts may get your hopes up on getting a ticket. DONT! i spent 90k tonight and didnt get didley. ive spent over 300k in there and didnt get didley. this kind of thing makes me remember why i quit this game for so long in the first place. spend 90k take hours turning in coins and end up with nothing but a deluxe sowing kit to show for it.

Dropped about 175K. Won two gold tickets. Turned one ticket in - received the Guise. Was hoping for the holgresh beads. I have one more ticket. If anyone wants to trade their holgresh elder beads for my last gold ticket let me know - Timper on Maelin Starpyer. If I don't get any interest I will turn in my last ticket in a couple days.

The exact text received when winning:

"Jackpot! You won the grand prize! Take this Gold Ticket over the the master dealer! Your grand prize awaits!"

...notice the error?

I had made an audio trigger to Thump1 when I saw "Ticket". The very next hand in (I do not even exaggerate) I heard a rather conspicuous THUMP, compared to the normal Alert2 I hear when I see "tokens" won.

Hmmm... so it's a new thing that you can't have both hammer and gauntlet at the same time anymore? like the epic 1.5 and 2.0.

What happens if you had both before the lore changed? Lose one or both?

I got the first gold ticket after only 20kpp spent. After getting just a few other items in bazaar, I bugged a chanty to make me DE (yes, in shadowhaven as illusion wears when you cross zone) and handed the gold ticket.

My first prize?

Guise of the Deceiver

:( I was hoping for the glowing drum (or holgresh elder beads, fungus covered staff, and scimitar of the mistwalker since they can be sold afterward)

I did notice one thing: of the few friends I have that did get the glowing drum, all got the black version. Is the white drum still in the casino at all? I would have preferred white over black.

PS I also noticed Allak listed 4 different resistance stone. I take it the 5th one for disease was never included? Be nice if SOE could slip in a new resistance stone for corruption

I went and spent some more money.

Bazillion kabob's and 215kpp later I got another gold ticket which netted me a rubicite breastplate. Back to the casino and got my third one after only 50kpp

Third gold ticket got me a glowing black drum.

I guess I got lucky I didn't need all the junk items to get the 2 no drop items. Still a bit peeved that I got the DE mask when I had DE illusion on.

Grand total spent: 335kpp
In addition to the DE mask, drum, and breastplate I also got beer goggle, snakefingers glove, all 4 resistance stones, and 7 duplicate lore messages. Also oddles of assorted gems and illusion pots which I sold to buy more tokens ;-)
