This is not a complaint, just a genuine question. Only after knowing the answer, I might complain a little bit
It is known that the drop rates of Shimzar are lower than the ones of the core set. If I recall correctly a comment by the developers on the forums, however, they should not be significantly lower. The developers’ expectation was that the change was not really noticeable to the average user.
However, it seems to me that the drop rates of Shimzar are quite worse than the ones of the core set. I bought the 50 packs pre-order in August and I got most of the commons and rares from there already. After that, it seems I most often open packs with only more commons and rare, which get immediately turned into spirit. It seems to me it’s quite hard to find epic and legendaries in Shimzar. Again, I don’t want to cry about this, but I was wondering whether the actual quantitative decrease of the drop rates has ever been disclosed / estimated by the community.
Also, more strategically, I wonder how other players in my same situation behave when buying packs. Do you still buy Shimzar packs or do you find it more convenient to open more packs from the core set? Based on limited observations, the average spirit value of my Shimzar packs seems to be around 70 spirits. Is it any good or would it be more convenient to push for the core set?
Thanks for reading, I hope this does not violate any forum rule.
