Let's start with booster packs! All cards in MTG Arena---including Wildcards---have an associated rarity level: Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Mythic. MTG Arena booster packs ("Packs") contain 8 cards* with the following rarity distribution:
1 Praetor card from among the following (Sheoldred, the Apocalypse/Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider/Urabrask, Heretic Praetor/Jin-Gitaxis, Progress Tyrant) may replace the Rare slot of Phyrexia: All Will Be One limited booster packs, at a ratio of approximately 1:60. Reprint Praetors do not appear in store packs.
Each Alchemy booster contains Uncommon, Rare, and Mythic Rare cards from the Alchemy set and Common cards from the related base set. Once you have collected a playset of all of the Rare cards in the Alchemy set, the Rare slot will pull from your uncollected Rares from the base set. The same is also true for Mythic Rares.
1 Shadows of the Past card of any rarity appears in each Shadows over Innistrad Remastered booster pack, replacing a common slot. Store packs can contain any Shadows of the Past card. A common or uncommon in this slot can upgrade to a rare at a rate of approximately 1:15 packs. Rares in this slot can upgrade to mythics at a rate of approximately 1:2.
Which Shadows of the Past cards appear in Shadows over Innistrad Remastered limited booster packs will depend based on which Shadows of the Past theme is being used. See the event page to learn which theme is currently being used in an event. For the Abominable All Stars! theme, a common or uncommon in this slot can upgrade to a mythic at a rate of approximately 1:15. There are no rares in this theme. For all other themes, a common or uncommon in this slot can upgrade to a mythic at a rate of approximately 1:15, and a rare in this slot can upgrade to a mythic at approximately 1:9. See this page for details on the contents of each theme.
There shouldn't be any reason for this to be the case, for two reasons. Firstly, PvE isn't how you earn cards - daily quests and playtime are, which can both be achieved through PvP just as well as through PvE if the quests are implemented well. Secondly, PvP players will be looking for specific cards so won't spend all their BFP on boosters but will turn to the auction house to buy those cards and skip the randomness.
Also, the increased odds of getting higher rarity cards will help on both counts here, decreasing the number of boosters that need to be opened to get those rare cards and also meaning that more rare cards are on the AH and so stabilising/reducing their price. SR seems like a big step up for PvP decks to me, given these changes.
Personally, I really like the idea to buff boosters. I would also be on board to make boosters even harder to obtain to justify an even higher reward. In other games, Hearthstone comes to mind, opening boosters are very anticlimactic because of the low drop rates. Opening 5 packs at a time with X ratio is less fun than opening 1 pack with 5X ratio.
XLink here coming with another game design update. Now, it has come to our attention that a lot of you have been wondering what your booster odds are in Skylords Reborn. That is to say, what are your chances of getting different rarities of cards? I will provide you with answers to this debate, as an official ratio has been set up. We've had many questions as to what the exact rates are, and so I'll clear things up a bit, and explain why the ratio has changed.
Since we will not be exploiting a microtransaction system to siphon your money out through booster rarities, as well as with the spirit of being able to obtain cards quicker, easier and in a more satisfying and enjoyable manner, it's been decided that we increase the chance of getting rare cards in boosters, to let that 40% flow to the players more efficiently than by 16% of a booster at a time. It'll be easier to get that shiny loot! This has been the case since closed beta, and has been tested within closed beta, which has been quite a success. Many of you have asked what the exact ratio was, and we decided to keep it under the radar a bit for testing and changing purposes, but now that we have established a solid ratio, I'm publishing your odds right here. (this has been published before, but not definitively, in a beta thread) This does not mean that these are definitive. They are close to definitive, but in case of design flaws or the odds not turning out as we would have liked them to turn out, these ratios are subject to change; especially the promo ratio.
With these ratio changes I'm officially introducing our way of distributing promo cards; every booster will have a very small chance of granting a promo card. This way, everyone will have access to these elusive, extremely rare cards. We will also possibly use them as rewards for tournaments and official events. Seasonal promos, like Santa Claus and Easter Egg, will not be available in regular boosters.With that all being said, here are the general odds for the card boosters in Skylords Reborn!Boosters consist of 8 cards:
This means that every single booster will provide you with up to 1 ultra-rare at a time, up to 2 rares at a time, and up to 3 uncommons at a time. If you get an Ultra Rare or a promo, there is still a chance you will get a rare. Getting 2 rares and 2 uncommons will therefore not be a strange sight, as it would have been in the original game. Remember that the promo ratio especially may be subject to change if we deem it too high or too low of a chance.
We hope that these new ratios will provide a quicker, more enjoyable and way more satisfying way of collecting cards, to kickstart the game more efficiently and make grinding and collecting a little more bearable, whilst sticking to the game's original mechanics.In the nearby future, we will discuss the possibility of different types of boosters (e.g. editions, elements) and potential odds and card pools for them, internally. Stay tuned for more information on that in said nearby future. Booster prices will be discussed in the even more distant future, when the programming team is ready for it.
I hope to have informed you sufficiently on the new booster ratios. Be wary that this booster ratio has been calculated quite thoroughly and is pretty much definitive. Even small changes could throw the booster rarity ratios off balance; we have found these values to hit the sweet spot.
You can use more turn meter control for spider, or just gear your champs for more damage. In dragon i think a Frozen banshee if you have one would be good, apoth would be good. Get more nukers if your struggling on the wawes, get more posion if your struggling with the boss. Get High Khatun/Apothecary as a great speed booster and, in Apoths case, also a healer. 041b061a72
