    I have 2 questions regarding the GCP guarantee,

    Lets say I have finished all of the 2* legendaries in the GCP catalog and when I open my 6th pack, will the guarantee be a definite *3 legendary or will it be a chance of a dupe *2 or *3 ?

    and the second question is, is the percentage of getting a 2* higher then getting a *3 star within the guarantee or their both 50/50 chance wise?

      2* and 3* are grouped together, so if you have received all of the 2* but not all of the 3*, your 2*/3* Guarantee will grant you a 3* that you have not yet acquired.

      In general, 2* have a higher weighting than 3*. What happens when you hit the 2*/3* Guarantee, it basically just removes all the 1* from the pool for that particular drop. There is no difference in the weight values otherwise.

          What are the chances of swapping a guaranteed Tome for Mythic gear with Masterwork Gear packs?

          I know RNG must hate me being MGP's have a 'good chance at legendary gear', yet I've bought about 6 MGP's and they yielded a total of zero mythic/leg gear drops, one epic, and mostly the one guaranteed rare with uncommon gear.

          I have been collecting tomes from the PVP events, so having them as a reward for gear packs seems less desireable than gear itself.

          I keep telling myself that my luck will change but it's getting tough to keep spending 55 gems on two uncommon and one rare gear.

          Anyone else have better recommendations for obtaining gear?

          Would anyone else prefer gear guarantees for gear packs over tomes?

            Farm gold.. especially from Sunday Nexus. Use the gold to buy gold gear packs. Eventually the gold gear packs will be updated with better and better gears.
            I stashed a lot of gold.. and spent alot of gold.
            50 some odd gems is like almost 5 refills... that's a lot of potential gold.

            I have gotten Expensive Dog treats, Epic Warm Orbs, Elven plate armors, a few Dragon Testaments...etc.

            I would also prefer if they improve the pack guarantees for gears.. I guess we'll see what comes.
            ... and then there's PALA (you know.. that lil warrior dwarf).

              Thanks! I have also been using a lot of gold on the gold gear packs and had much better luck there, oddly enough. I don't mind the guaranteed rare from the more expensive packs being that there is some really handy rare gear, but yeah, let's hope the more expensive gear packs become more worthwhile in the future.

                Apologies if this has been answered before, however I'm curious about how the pulls work for the GCP.

                Say the feature this week is a 1* hero and a 3* hero, and one has the entire 1* catalog. If one were to use a featured GCP, in what order do the Legendaries drop? Assuming the end goal was to get both heroes, what is the most probable way to ensure this?

                Does the feature pull before the regular legendary pull (like when purchasing CPs, it goes Feature Guarantee -> Leg Guarantee) or the other way around? Or is it entirely random? If one goes to look at the "Newest" tab after pulling a GCP, the toons are not listed in the order they were drawn (seemingly random).

                Currently I'm thinking that the best way to "guarantee" a multi-star legendary when several heroes are released at once is to simply (try) to pull CPs until we fill the 1* catalog, then pull the GCP for the feature.

                  Featured triggers before regular legendary.

                        Sorry, I did not understand this, I have all the heroes of 1 and 2 stars.
                        the heroes of this week are 1 hero of 1 star and 1 hero of 3 stars
                        if I buy a GCP with guarantee will only get the hero of 1 star or you get both?

                              Hi, just read through this. What happens when 2/3* guarantee and featured collides? When great dragon and yavanna was featured I bought 2 GCPs and the counter on first pack was next pack 2/3 and featured. I was pretty bummed when i only got GD and 2 dupe 1*s. Next pack (no feature and no 2/3* guarantee) only dupe 1 stars....was this correct drops?

                                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                                Posting Suggestions
                                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                                Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
