    The not random option

    Skill shards. They are not random. You won't buy a skill shard and receive a 1* Shard.

    I use Ironites on Rare Souls (the pack with 10) and my trooper points in Skill Shards.

    Skill shards. Souls suck. The drop rate is so bad that any seasoned player with a few characters in inventory would not part with hard earned resources. The Devs have noticed we aren't spending the anticipated ironite/trooper badges on rare/rare class souls, so the solution was to effectively eliminate rare souls from rewards to increase the demand by limiting the supply. Unfortunately, without revamping the drops from these souls they went from high supply of crap to low supply of crap. Demand may i variably go up, but not by much.

    The only time class souls are (or may be) worth it are during some rare, limited promo, and if they burn us on that enough, then that might come back and bite them in the ass. Last promo was a day one bonanza and a day2-3 drought, for example.

    I got my great gunner characters from buying G/A Souls at 3750 trooper badges...imo get skill shards only when you gotten the characters that you wanted.

    I have to agree skillshards are the way to go. I once thought that specific souls might be useful for trying to get a specific charater like samurai Eddie but after buying 25 red souls I learned the truth... Go with skillshards.

    I guess ass/gun souls are the exception. But the red,blue,green are not very good.

    I think the experience of the poster in this thread was the exception. I don't recall ever getting anything of merit from purchased gunner/ass souls. My two great purple/yellow pulls were in-game awarded souls, if I recall correctly, whereas my purchased G/A souls have not been very rewarding. I also recall a meltdown or two on this forum about G/A investments gone awry.

    I believe I may have gotten my assassin GS from a G/A soul... Whether they are worth the higher cost than red/green/blue souls is a different matter completely though!

    If I had to come up with a rule for trooper points it would be:

    - New teams: Souls
    - Experienced teams: Skill shards - Except during special events

    So many people got FOTD from green souls for example (myself included)

    I am just in this situation just now. Farmed LOL X today and got bag load of souls - just normal ones and loads of 3* Red Evo Runes (I think 11 so far in one and half sands of time run throughs). Anyway, I have used troopers for this and got loads of badges to spend.....I don't have loads of great toons yet and really want an Assassin GS or CotD - really anything to be honest that will add to what I have as my main toons.....
