SWGoH: Should I buy the Lord of Hunger Pack?

With Darth Nihilus joining the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes universe today, the big question for the guppies, dolphins and whales alike is “how quickly can I get these new toons to 7 stars?” Lord of Hunger Pack - Sith TrooperSo to help with this, we are taking a look at the Lord of Hunger packs which came out this morning offering a chance to get Nihilus, Sith Assassin and Sith Trooper shards. Unlike the (ripoff) Citadel Pack, the Lord of Hunger packs are individually sold for 1,299 crystals apiece.

So what do I get for my 1,299 crystals?

Each pack guarantees at least 5 shards for Darth Nihilus, with a chance to get 30 shards! Minimum 5 shards per pack.

This of course applies to the individual toon – Nihilus, Sith Assassin and Sith Trooper – in terms of the shards in the pack. In addition, as a “bonus” you get 125k credits, 1 MK III ability material, 3 MK II ability materials and a chance to get 1 Omega ability material.

Lord of Hunger Pack - Sith AssassinOk now, here is what I have experienced:

So far, after two packs of the Sith Trooper I received a total of 10 shards (5 both times) along with the materials promised and one “bonus” Omega material. After two packs of the Sith Assassin I also received a total of 10 shards (5 both times) along with the materials promised and one “bonus” Omega material. Finally, in 10 packs opened of Darth Nihilus I have received 5 shards each time for a total of 50 shards. Lord of Hunger Pack - Darth NihilusIn those 10 packs I received one single Omega material along with the promised credits and less important items.

So there you have it. If 30 shards of Darth Nihilus is your goal you better get your wallet out and be ready to spend. Not at all unlike the (ripoff) Citadel Pack, the Lord of Hunger packs seem to be a terrible way, along with the only way, to level up Darth Nihilus and his friends’ stars.

      Complete ripoff. I also got 5 shards after buying the Darth Nihilous pack and one Omega material. I had 10 shards, and was hoping for somewhere in the middle of that 5-30 so I could promote him to for stars. Instead of BS’ing people and saying 5-30 shards, they should just go ahead and say 5. It is also stated that you can get the shards with the bronzium cards. After at least 200 cards purchased, I haven’t received one single shard for any less of hunger toon. Save your money people, and just gear them high and keep them max leveled.
