Classic Sphere Packs

Postby Logress » Thu Apr 05, 2012 1:16 am

Alteil’s early Sets may not have the sugar-rush draw of some of our more recent ones, but they still contain a number of key cards that open up File-building opportunities and fill out your collection -- and more than a few jems like Aqua Sorceress Mystere and Blessed Knight Orfen. Now, here’s a big chance to round up a collection of Alteil cards from the early Sets.



Next week we’re trying something new, CLASSIC SPHERE PACKS, 5 card packs for 300 gran that pull from one sphere and have boosted rates from normal packs, but pull from 3 Sets… Classic means Sets 1-3. Each pack has 1 Guaranteed 3-Star, 1 Guaranteed 3-Star or higher and two guaranteed 2-stars. There will be four versions: REFESS, LAWTIA, GOWEN and FALKOW, and they’ll be in the shop from the 9th to the 15th.

Translated:

The earlier sets mostly have nothing to offer. Of course there are exceptions, and these really rare cards are available in these packs!! Spend tons in order to increase your chances at getting the very few useful cards available within these sets while ultimately getting heaps of crap you really really really dont want!!

Ugh.

Maybe it's a good idea to first buff some of these cards first? No one wants to pull a bunch of Animated Dead...

In any case we are waiting for set 11.

Well, animated dead is a 1*, which only has a chance of showing up once in each pack. But I concur on not wanting cards especially if they are from the starter. Well, it's pinpointing at least if you want 3*'s from the earlier sets. I could use a couple of Orfens

If the pool for these sphere packs pulled from select newer sets then this would be a great deal. But even so it is not a terrible deal. This is better than the Easter lottos IMO because you get a targeted sphere and limited card pool. I always prefer to know exactly (or like this case at least have a good idea) what I'm going to get for my gran. I think Refess and Law players have the most to gain from these packs. Your chances of getting a four or five star card are probably very rare. So, if you buy one of these packs do so looking to pinpoint three star cards (getting two per pack). Some good three stars in the pool are:

Lapierre
Judgement Hammer
Lavende
Orfen

Zug
LeBeau
Merciless Death

Dan Dan

Addition (I don't see this card used ever... well I have seen it played once... but I think it has some potential now with multishpere decks becoming more popular and easier to play)

Those Law cards (and Dan Dan) would look a whole lot more attractive if they weren't made available in prebuilts. The Refess cards can be very beneficial, but only for select decks/strategies. Gowen and Falkow don't really have much to offer.

Don't say its a good value until the price is given. My guess is 300, since it is similar rarity chances to the seasonal pack.
Assuming a good price, it is good value for the 3 stars, with the probably low but offset chance of getting a proxy or dragon emporer, verlaat or eskatia, or Yuni <3


And of course it's broken into spheres.
EDIT: That might jack the price up.
