View Full Version : Card Packs?

Thinking about getting this game but I'm wondering about the 10 different card packs (http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Yu-Gi-Oh-5Ds/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258410a03?xr=crumbnav) and what they contain. Are any better than the others or will help speed up getting achievements?

Click the card pack in particular and it'll tell you what cards they give; the packs are themed from different NPC decks in the game. The decks aren't from actual characters of the show, but from filler NPCs from the "qualifier" round of the tournament mode (which are themed around different strategies, like Gladiator Beast or water-based).

It is possible to get all the cards through regular play, which is why I didn't purchase them myself. I don't think they really speed up achievements if you boost the online portion. I was able to do the "story" achievements with just some simple-ish mods to the default deck (and a lot of retries :p). After that, online play is all that's left and if you boost you don't need a good deck.

If you're considering buying any, I suggest you play the game and see how it goes first. If you're fine with the default deck and/or get good rewards to make your own, stick with it. If you're struggling and/or like a particular NPC's deck strategy, it might be worthwhile to purchase their pack.
