Disciples, pick your mystery box of choice! The new Dancing Snake has your chance at Capricorn Essences, and the Treasured Copper Coin can be turned into one of ten older mystery boxes.
The Treasured Copper Coin can be traded for ten mystery boxes, with prizes including the Firmus esper, Yuan Crystals, mounts and more. It's available for 0.50 Jaden, as well as being in the ongoing Jaden Rewards.
All of these mystery boxes are available from the Jade Exchange Girl in Sunstream City – check her Treasure tab. Each Treasure Copper Coin can be traded for one mystery box of your choice. You can get the Treasure Copper Coin for 200 bonus points each.

The Dancing Snake mystery box is your chance at Capricorn Essences, both in PvP and PvE versions. These are a great boost for your Ascended character, with huge Health and Attack Power bonuses, plus a chunk of Damage Reduction. The Dancing Snake is just 0.50 Jaden.
These Essences are the third-best of the zodiac essences, and they can be built up into the ridiculously good Pisces Essence. The ★Capricorn Essence is generally considered better for PvP because of its focus on Skill Acc./Eva., while the ☆Capricorn Essence’s Damage Reduction applies versus mobs in the Affinity Lands.
