  • Pack Information at a Glance (February 2019)

    Pack Catalogs:

    Heroes:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...03U/edit#gid=0
    Gear: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=532547543


    The catalogs for all packs are fixed. There will be no further changes to these catalogs (exception that the Armory pack will receive new gear releases if they are Legendary or Mythic). In general, heroes that can be obtained through a Quest event will not be found within a fixed hero pack catalog, although they will be available within the Champion and Grand Champion packs as part of their featured group.

    If a hero is added to a quest event, it will not be removed from its current pack catalog.

    Champion and Grand Champion Packs:

    The Champion and Grand Champion Packs are available for purchase in the FEATURED section of the Store using Gems. Each week, a different group, faction, or specialization will be featured, and the packs will contain only heroes belonging to the featured group. Be sure to read the weekly Newsfeed Announcement each week for information about the current featured group. Here you will find a breakdown of what to expect from each pack!

    For all drops, the No-Duplicate Rule applies. See below for more information about this rule.

    Champion Packs drop 1 Epic+ Hero, and 1 Rune or Gear, and are available for purchase at the regular price of 30 gems.

    Champion Pack Guarantees:
    • Every 4 Packs - Legendary+ Hero
    • Every 20 Packs - 2-star or 3-star Legendary Hero
    • Every 50 Packs - Legendary+ Gear
    • Every 80 Packs - 3-Star Legendary Hero
    Grand Champion Packs drop 9 Epic+ Heroes or Wisps, 4 Runes, 2 Gear, and a chance at a Tome of Ascension, and are available for purchase at the regular price of 260 gems.

    Grand Champion Pack Guarantees:
    • Every Pack:
      • 3 Legendary+ Heroes
      • 2 Legendary+ Wisps with a chance to be a Legendary Hero instead
      • 4 Epic Heroes
      • 1 Epic+ Gear
      • 1 additional Gear
      • 4 Epic+ Runes
    • Every 2 Packs - 2-star or 3-star Legendary Hero
    • Every 5 Packs - one Legendary+ Gear, replaces the lesser rarity Gear
    • Every 6 Packs - 3-star Legendary Hero, replaces a Wisp
    About Guarantees:

    With each pack purchase that a player makes, they move closer to a guaranteed reward from a future pack. The number of packs purchased and the progress toward a guarantee carry over between weeks, so if a player is one pack away from a guarantee and makes another purchase a week later on the next offer, the guarantee will trigger immediately. Also, bear in mind that guarantees are not shared between Champion Packs and Grand Champion Packs as they have their own counters.

    When hero guarantees collide in the Champion Packs, such as on the 20th and 80th packs, the lesser guarantee is deferred by one pack, and then that guarantee's counter is reset. On the 20th pack, the first 2-star/3-star Guarantee should drop, pushing the Legendary Guarantee to pack 21. The 2-star/3-star Guarantees then hit on packs 20, 40, and 60, while the Legendary Guarantees then hit on packs 21, 25, 29, etc. On pack 80, the 3-star guarantee collides with the 2-star/3-star Guarantee, causing the 2-star/3-star Guarantee to defer by one, which then causes the Legendary guarantee to defer again. The 3-star Guarantee then falls on packs 80, 160, etc, while the 2-star/3-star Guarantee then falls on packs 81, 101, 121, etc, and the Legendary Guarantees then fall on packs 82, 86, 90, etc.

    Guarantee progress is available to view by tapping on the pack image in the store. These counters are dynamic and will show how many packs remain until that guarantee is triggered. Each purchase reduces the counter by 1, until the guarantee is triggered. When the counter reaches 1, this means the next pack purchased will trigger that guarantee, and will then reset.

    No-Duplicate Rule:

    Hero drops from Packs are subject to a "No-Duplicate Rule" which prioritizes heroes that the player has not yet acquired by any means, giving the best chances for new heroes with each purchase. While this reduces the chance of duplicates, it is always still possible to receive a duplicate Hero in a pack. Keep in mind that the No-Duplicate Rule is applied per rarity and star-rating, so you may acquire all of the One Star Legendary Heroes in a pack, for example, and begin seeing duplicate One Star Legendary heroes despite having not yet acquired all Two and Three Star Legendary heroes.

    The No-Duplicate Rule also is limited to only the heroes currently available within the pack catalog for the pack being purchased. If all heroes currently available within that pack's catalog have been obtained, then the rule no longer applies, and duplicates may be received. Heroes not available within a specific pack's catalog cannot be obtained through purchasing that pack, regardless of whether or not that hero has been previously acquired elsewhere.

    Two and Three Star Large Creatures will never duplicate within the Champion and Grand Champion Packs (unless explicitly stated in that week's announcement).
    Gear will not be subject to the No-Duplicate Rule as we encourage players to collect multiple copies of great Gear to distribute to all of their favorite heroes. However, Champion and Grand Champion Packs will always have the best odds on the newest Gear.

    PVP and Quest Exclusives:

    Several heroes and gear within the game are considered to be "Exclusive" based on how they were released, which may affect their eligibility to be included in packs. Any hero or gear that has been released via the Champion and Grand Champion packs are not considered to be exclusive, and can generally be considered eligible for any pack that is offered.
    Heroes that have been released into the game via PVP or a Quest event are "Exclusive", and are generally ineligible for inclusion in packs.

    Gear may be released initially as a PVP or Quest exclusive. These gear will remain exclusive indefinitely in that they will not be added to the standard Champion Catalog or Gear Packs, however they may still be added to quest events or PVP rewards, and will be added to the general drop list for quests that allow all gear in the game to be dropped, in the release cycle following the gear's release into the game.

    If an Exclusive Hero or Gear is intended to be included in a pack, the pack description will clearly identify that particular hero or gear as being included.

    More information regarding the heroes and gear currently set as exclusive may be found by visiting our forums at http://bit.ly/HoDA_Exclusives.

    Lastly, all Grand Champion Pack purchases have a small chance to drop the rare Tome of Ascension, the final key to Mythic evolution!


    Iron Packs, Bloodstone Packs:

    The Iron and Bloodstone Packs are available for purchase in the Heroes section of the Store using vouchers. Vouchers can be obtained through climbing the PVP Event ladder and through Daily Login Rewards.

    Bloodstone Pack
    • Grants 1 Hero
    • Can grant Legendary 1* hero OR Legendary 2* hero OR Legendary 3* hero

    • No guarantees necessary given the no-dupe behavior above
    Iron Pack

    • Can grant Epic hero OR Legendary 1* hero OR Legendary 2* hero
    • Legendary guarantee every 6th pack – higher chance of 2* in guarantee

    • 2* and 3* Large Creatures will never duplicate
    Recruit, Soldier, Knight, and Commander Packs:

    Commander Pack (Green)
    • Grants 1 Legendary Hero and 1 Legendary rune
    • Can grant Legendary 1* hero OR Legendary 2* hero OR Legendary 3* hero

    • Can grant an Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary 1*, or Legendary 2* hero

    • This is the final resting place of 2* Heroes in Packs - they will not be moved to the Recruit Pack
    Note: The Soldier pack has a Legendary and 2* guarantee at a high number of packs but due to the quantity required and the complexity in manual counting - we're not "advertising" a specific number.
    Recruit Pack (Bronze)
    • Grants 1 Hero and a chance at 1 Rare rune
    • Can grant a Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary 1*, or Legendary 2* hero
    • Rare guarantee every 50th Pack
    • No-dupe behavior just like CP/GCP, e.g. "intra-dupe" - meaning rarity and star ratings are grouped separately - not together
    Gear Packs:

    There are currently 6 types of Gear Packs available to purchase in the Store. These can be found under the Items section of the Store.

    Peasant Gear Pack - 2,000 Gold
    • Drops 1 piece of gear with a chance at Rare.
    • Gear may be Common, Uncommon, or Rare.

    • No duplicates within a pack (although you may receive duplicates of gear you have previously acquired)
    • Contains newer gear than any of the above packs
    Gear will not be subject to the No-Duplicate Rule as we encourage players to collect multiple copies of great Gear to distribute to all of their favorite heroes.

    New Legendary and Mythic Gear will be added to the Armory pack in the same release as the gear's introduction to the game. This means gear may become available within the Armory Pack prior to its release into the Premium Catalog. The Armory Pack will also contain event-exclusive release gear at all times.

        No dupe is per star rating for the commander pack! That confused me at first too. You presumably have all the 1* heroes in that pack so now you're getting dupes.

                Lyeshal for example Jerric Dace is not in any pack, although he is a 2 star. What happens to heroes that are stuck in "limbo" if the packs are fixed?

                    You'll have to wait for them to be in a group feature week, flash pack, PVP event, or quest event.

                    Heroes that aren't in the packs are most likely already in a quest event of some sort.

                        it's all about the luck. I have been playing Metas casually not going for a 3rd Jerrick at all, and just like that, I'm lazy tiering up a 3rd. (T3 now from 3x JD drops)

                        Go forth and may your luck be plentiful!

                          We had a good laugh in Dream Warriors at Pixie's expense when one of our newer members got JD on his first try. Just shows how fickle RNG can be.

                          As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will. All posts/threads will be deleted.

                          Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

Nor will you post private communication between EA Capital Games Support, other forum members, moderators, community managers, administrators, EA Capital Games employees, or partners of EA Capital Games on these forums or anywhere else.

                          Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

                          Discussing or posting of another player's spending habits will be deleted.

                          Warez
                          Providing or asking for information regarding the illegal downloading of "warez", "gamez" or any other software protected by copyright.


                          Future Events/Promotions
                          Any posts or threads revealing future events or promotions that were not disclosed by the Capital Games team will be deleted.


                          Cross-posting
                          Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.


                          Cheating
                          The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                          Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                          Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.


                          Off-Topic Posting
                          Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


                          Political Posting
                          Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.


                          Customer Support Inquiries
                          All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                          Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                          Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                          What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                          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 Lead 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. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. 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 under the appropriate heading.

                          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. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                          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 and/or game.

                          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.
