Just to get a little more clarification here.. Is the 2% for primal packs per pack you purchase or is this on the purchase as a whole?

Would I be better off buying 50 packs at once or buying 1 pack at a time?

Pretty sure percentages don't work the way you're thinking.

For example: Tax.

$10 * 1.10 = $11.00

$1 * 1.10 = $1.10

$1.10 * 10 = $11.

In other words, whether you buy 50 packs or 1 pack at a time, your chance is still going to be 2% regardless. Assuming the rate is 2%.

You're getting stuck in gambler's fallacy. You cannot account for past events when figuring out percentage. If you've purchased 49 singular packs and not get a single primal, the 50th pack isn't guaranteed. It's still a 2% chance.

I see where you are coming from, but maybe I didn't explain enough...

If the % on primal packs is per purchase, I would much rather purchase 1 pack at a time and have a 2% chance 50 times, rather than purchase 50 and only have a 2% chance 1 time.

Which brings me back to the original question, if it's per pack or per purchase.

oh! probably per pack. It wouldn't make sense to be per purchase because Crypt doesn't gain anything out of it either way as there's no discount to buying more at once.

It's per pack. If you buy 100 packs in a lump sum, you get still get 100 rolls for primals.

Great, thanks for the clarification.
