BioWare thinks it can help you with that problem in Star Wars: The Old Republic via a new feature that will “enhance the pack opening experience for all packs” by improving the “visual experience of opening packs” and expediting the whole process. I mean, if you’re going to upend your purse over a dumpster, let’s get it over with as fast as possible so you don’t have to watch on in horror!

New Pack Opening Experience

With the launch of Game Update 4.7 we are introducing a new feature which will enhance the pack opening experience for all packs. This improves the visual experience of opening packs while ensuring that the process remains a quick one. There are two components of this new feature, the Pack Viewer and the Item Stash.

Pack Viewer

The Pack Viewer serves two purposes. First, it creates a much simpler way for you to see what packs your character currently has (including Grand Chance Cubes and Dark Vs. Light Event packs), without having to search through your inventory for them. Second, it introduces a new visually enhanced pack opening experience. Let’s look at each section individually.

Inside of the pack viewer, it will display all packs which your character currently has within its inventory. It will show the packs icon, name, and how many of each pack you have. Note that this will not display Hypercrates, you will need to take the packs out of the crate first. Along with the pack viewer changes, individual Cartel Packs will now stack in your inventory as well.

Once you decide that you want to open a pack, click the open pack button in the bottom right of Pack Viewer UI. This will launch you into the new pack opening experience.




Inside of this new experience you can individually click each item to reveal it, or simply reveal them all at one time. Once you have revealed all of the items in the pack you can go right into the next pack or exit the pack opening. You may notice that when you opened your pack, the items didn’t go into your inventory. Let’s talk about the Item Stash!

Item Stash

Any time that you open a pack, all of the items that you received will be placed in your Item Stash UI. Unlike the Pack Viewer, the Item Stash is Legacy Wide. This will allow you to move items straight from a pack to any character in your Legacy.

To claim an item from the Item Stash is very simple. Simply navigate to the item in the list and press claim. This will take the item from your stash and place it into your inventory. Note that the items Cartel Market bind timer will not begin until it has been claimed into your inventory.




The Item Stash comes with a lot of additional smaller components, here are some of the notable items:

The Item Stash can hold up to 250 unique items.
Unique items stack. Ex: If you have three Defiant Venter Lightsabers, it will only take up one slot in your stash.
Items in your stash can be sorted by name, quality, rarity, quantity, or new.
Items in your stash can be filtered by type, such as armor, mount, etc.
If you have multiple of a unique item in your stash, you can claim one or the entire stack.
If you claim the entire stack, the items will remain stacked in your character’s inventory and will all share the same bind timer.

We feel that this new pack opening experience along with the Pack Viewer and Item Stash should create a new and improved Cartel Pack experience. Thank you for reading!

I often visit the SWTOR O-boards and you would be shocked, SHOCKED, on not only how many players invest in the lottery loot packs but the sheer amount of money they dump into it. You will find whiney posts from those who have spent literally hundreds of dollars on lottery packs looking for that 'special item' that they failed to get. The unopened lottery packs and items that come from them run the player economy. I noticed long ago that the game hinges more on the cash shop and the gambling than the game itself.

Yet while more development is placed in the cartel market, the players opt to regrind the same old content under the guise of the 'new' Dark and Light event. As long as Star Wars fanbois can swing their glow bats, they will keep playing this game and throwing money at it. Strip away the IP and this game would have shuttered years ago. Anyway, I can't think of a better group of gamer guppies to be parted with their money.
