DCUO - Promethium lockbox drops capped per character per month

Just found out from the DCUO forums that the Promethium lockboxes are capped per character per month. This explains why I haven't gotten a lockbox for about 3 weeks. Time to play my hero.

Edit (18-07-2102): The cap is 15 Promethium lockboxes per character per month. The cap resets every month on the 20th. (Mepps also confirmed this on the forums, but I can't recall his post) Happy hunting!

Mepps confirmed it himself. You can find his quote from the link below:

Quoted from Mepps:

"We would like to clarify for everyone that it's not really possible to "farm" lockboxes. Your chances of finding them are based on time, not exactly on the amount of kills you get. You'll get just as many lockboxes going about your business and playing the game normally as you would going out and slaughtering everything in sight.

There is also a cap per month, per character, that a few of our higheset playtime players have hit. We're pretty surprised people are playing that much, but also really glad! We do apologize for any confusion that has caused for those of you who have reached the cap. You can hop onto another character or wait for next month once you get there."
