Buy packs from test server store, then post here your results. Booster edition should be irrelevant. We'll be checking if the primal proc rate is still 1-2%. I will update the main post every once in a while with new acquired data. For those who wish to, we can also separate the different sets for data analysis sake.

Current results show the primal proc rate to be at or near 1.8% when taking into account all sets. Similarly, set3 data show 1.8% primal pack rate as well. Given the test server was not always giving the primal pack feedback window, I would assume the real proc rate to be at or near 2% as expected from the beginning. While the method is not perfect, it is the closest number to the truth we'll most likely ever get until a new test server event.

All sets : 12978 boosters --> 238 primal pack = ~1.8%

As an added bonus, assuming the primal proc rate is indeed 2.0% and a normal booster price is 165 on AH and 200 in store (meaning you buy for 200 from store and resell all of them for 160 in AH), you would need to obtain 50 boosters for 1 primal, that is to invest about 2000p to "force" a primal pack. Of course, this number is entirely based on how much you can resell your normal packs. The higher you can resell, the lower your investment for a primal.

TLDR : primal packs are currently cheaper on AH than if you tried to forcefully obtain them yourself.

Edit : I removed set1 and set2 individual data, we clearly did not have enough and the game is not properly reporting the primal proc.

Edit2 : I'm very tired, I wouldn't mind some other maths guru to check the calculus of the theoritical primal pack cost.

Edit 3 : 10k+, not taking any more numbers. Ok, I took the last few thousands, but now, stop!
