Re: Premium Chest

The premium chest is better value than the hero chest and it isn't close. Hero chest yields ~ 8% gold or one gold per 12 packs. Premium
Chest yields ~20% gold or 1 gold per 5 packs. 7500 gems will buy 50 hero chests with EV of 4.25 golds. The same 7500 gems will buy 30 premium chests with EV of 6 golds, which is 41.2% better yield.

Re: Premium Chest

Based on my personal experience & the anecdotal evidence from around the interwebs, I'd place a wager that...

 

150 Gem Pack = 10% Chance of Gold Hero

 

250 Gem Pack = 20% Chance of Gold Hero

 

Neither are even close to good odds that you're going to strike gold, but if those numbers are as accurate as I think they are, the premium packs are slightly the better value for gold farming.  However, because of the higher price, failure to get gold will feel a lot worse.  Also for players starting out, it might be best to stick with 150 gem packs to flesh out the silver roster faster & get more achievement unlocks.

well, taking your calcs, i went ahead and opened some more premium chests:

 

Results are IN:

 

Gold:

Emerald Green Lantern

Marksman Deadshot

 

Silvers:

 

Scarecrow

Robin

Batman x2

Green Lantern

Cyborg

 

that unlocked me a few achievements, so now i have 450 gems, which i'll use for opening some 2 more premium chests.

that's 2 golds out of a total of 8 premium chests or 2000 gems.

 

I could however, have opened 13 hero chests, but 2 gold? we'll never know...

Re: Premium Chest

Re: Premium Chest

Results from opening 6 packs: 

 

2*Green Arrow

1*Catwoman

1*Deadshot

1*Swamp Thing

1*Superman

3*Primal Swamp Thing, in that order.  

 

From this forum and my own results I'd agree gold odds in the premium chest are ~20%, double the odds of the hero chest.

Re: Premium Chest

@Basquiat I agree with you that it's better to go with hero chests if you want Marksman Deadshot, and Poison Ivy as well.  

 

Just realized though that, from a gems standpoint, you actually have the same odds of getting a gold.  

 

On average, you'll get 1 gold from every 10 hero chests (1500 gems, 10% chance) and 1 gold from every 6 hero chests (1500 gems, 18% chance). So for 1500 gems you'll probably get 1 gold no matter which chest you choose, but with the hero chest you'll at least be getting 4 more chests..probably 1*..but still more chests.

I've pulled a silver flash and an MDS from the premium chest so far. Worth it to me.

Re: Premium Chest

I'm a glutton for punishment - really wanting to get my first gold card after playing since the wide release, I bought the starter pack of 500 gems and made 2 more premium chest purchases. A duplicate 1* swamp thing and duplicate 1* Wonder Woman. Now 0/13 on premium chests. Looks like I am the statistical outlier here.

Re: Premium Chest

Opened 4 premium chests. 

 

1st: 10 silver Harley shards

2nd: 10 silver Batman shards

3rd: 10 silver Swamp Thing shards

4th: 10 silver Robin shards

 

So far these premium chests have been full of shenanigans and heart break.

What do you want to bet I type this out every time?
