As I stated in This Thread , the description in game specifically states "this pack contains rare bonus items not found in any other cartel market pack".

It was the only reason I picked it up, thinking only the new stuff would be in it. Those Patch Notes, are NOT what is stated in game on the market.

I bought 3 with the intention of selling 2 on the GTN. Opened the first and got Revan's Chest Plate and Robes. So I gave in and the second one had another chest plate and Phantom mask. The third had the Cyan-Blue Crystal.

The rest was all flotsam like xp boosts or an emote. Worthless junk (to me).

That said, this is by far the best luck I have had with Packs. Having bought and opened 5 or 6 of the Crime Lord packs, all I ever got there were spymaster upper body and the pink crystal. The rest was pure 100% garbage.

Anyone else feel like they are wasting the nice color crystals on a gun? The saber shows more so I just hate to use them on guns...

On a whim I decided to just buy three packs to take a chance at something new

First pack: same old junk with Ravens chest

Second pack: same old junk with Ravens lower robes

Third pack: a new Speeder bike, and a blue crystal, same other junk

All in all it wasnt a total loss, wonder what ravens armor will go for on the GTN though, it does look good.

The Pink-Purple and Cyan-Blue don't look as good as the single colour sabers. Why is that? Anyone with Computer Graphics knowledge (I have zilch) care to explain why?

It has nothing to do with computer graphics....they are just ugly color combos for a lightsaber. The other ones have a white or black core.

So it's not the coding, it's an actual colour issue? /facepalm How the heck did they miss this?

They should have just put Black-Magenta, White-Black, Black-Cyan and stuff like that into the shop rather than freaking Orange-Yellow and Pink-Purple.

Every cartel pack you buy takes exclusive gear out of the proper loot game and puts it into pay to win lock box's.

Just say no.

How much do you think Revan's mask is going to go for? I bought 7 RB packs and the only decent items I got were Revan's chestpiece, Revan's robes, and the blue-cyan crystal. Other than that just worthless crap.

I got the new cyan-blue crystal, top and bottom or revan's outfit, remote-control starship toy, bottom and head of new skimpy outfit, and the new lightsaber...pretty good for $20 of cartel coins.
