SWGoH: Should I Buy The Smuggler’s Return Pack?

Smuggler's Return Pack - SWGoH

The latest addition to the Should I Buy SWGoH series comes in the form of two new toons – Veteran Smuggler Han Solo and Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca. With the addition of this impressive duo, EA added The Smuggler’s Return Packs to the Store. For 1,299 crystals (separate buys for both characters) you can power up Veteran Smuggler Han Solo or Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca with a guarantee of a minimum of 5 shards and a chance to pull as many as 330 shards for either character. I invested into 16 purchases of The Smuggler’s Return Packs (8 for each) and here is what I received:

Smuggler's Return Pack - SWGoHVeteran Smuggler Han Solo

  • 3 pulls of 5 shards
  • 4 pulls of 7 shards
  • 1 pull of 10 shards

Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca

  • 1 pull of 5 shards
  • 5 pulls of 7 shards
  • 1 pull of 12 shards
  • 1 pull of 15 shards

So there you have it. If you are like me and wanted to get both to 5-stars (after paying the $19.99 to boost them already) to ensure you are closer to the end goal (7-stars) and to have them ready for platoons in Territory Battles – Hoth, you’re looking at the above scenario being your (likely) reality.

Final Thoughts: If you’re a spender in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and feel that this combination is the next big thing, do what you need to do to get them where you want. However, I would not recommend any FTP (Free To Play) SWGoH player save up or use their crystals on any of these packs given the data we continually bring in.

  1. That was very helpful to know. Something to think about- thanks!

  2. 8 ea plus the 1 timer….ugh

    I’m in the wrong business.

  3. Is there any documented proof of anyone hitting 330?

  4. Had a guy in my guild get 330 on a hoth han pack. lucky bastard

  5. Würde gerne mal wissen ob sich das lohnt den schmugglerveteran han solo auf 7 Sterne zu bringen und zu pushen, bzw ob er mit cls, weedge, Han Solo zusammen passen würde??? LG und danke schon mal im voraus für eure Antworten

    • Veteran Smuggler Han Solo is a very nice character for Territory Battles, but overall, since he is neither Resistance or a Rebel, he really does not have synergy with CLS or anyone of note of than Veteran Smuggler Chewbacca.

  6. Hola, llevo unas semanas con este juego tan enganchante ¿Me recomendáis comprar el mecapaquete de faccion rebelde? Tiene varios personajes de la legion fenix al viejo ben, a lando y algunos otros personajes bastante interesantes. O me recomendais mejor el megapaquete de facción canalla, tiene personajes tambien interesantes cad bane, zam wesell, bobba fett aunque este me lo estoy farmeando en nodo dificil lado oscuro y al principio en tienda cantina, pero despues en cantina pare todo y empece a darle caña solo a la legion fenix. O me recomendais esperar a algun otro paquete interesante que pueda salir en el futuro

      Carlos, I would think the Phoenix Squadron would be a slightly better pack to invest into. The Phoenix characters are needed to open Thrawn, a Top 10 toon in the game, and Sabine and Ezra are top notch as well.
