Golden Packs Bundle – 6 Golden Packs for $14.99 | Should you buy it?
A new Bundle just appeared: Get yourself 6 Golden Classic Packs for $14.99.

The guranteed Legendary in the first 10 packs opened is something that happens whenever a new expansion is released. […] It is correct you didn’t get one in the packs of Goblins vs Gnomes as that is an old expansion.

» Regular Outcome
These numbers are just an estimation, but will most likely be near to the real numbers.
For six-packs, you will get 30 cards, with common, rare, epic, and legendary expected proportions of 71.3%, 23.15%, 4.51%, and 1.01%, respectively. Using the current dust values for goldens of each rarity, you should expect to get on average about 2353 dust from these packs. (Thanks to DoctorShemp)

Should you buy it?
A lot of the Bundles in the past offered you Bundles for $0.67 per pack, which equals about 150 Dust per $.
Looking at those numbers, the value for this bundle is pretty good – we recommend buying it if you look for excellent value, and not for new cards.
