Sokloeum Posted March 10, 2016 Share Posted March 10, 2016 It looks like everyone is giving you most of the answer, but not the full thing, lol. Here's a lowdown of the full rarity spectrum. This should give you everything you need to know about the rarities, whether you need to know it or not, lol: N = Normal - A Booster Box-only suffix. Non holo. The most common card available. A total of 48 different N cards per Series. ST = Starter Deck - A Starter Deck-only suffix. Non holo. Like all Starter Deck cards you will always get the same amount of the cards in accordance to the fixed Deck list. ST+ = Starter Deck Holo - A Starter Deck-only suffix. Holo. Like all Starter Deck cards you will always get the same amount of the cards in accordance to the fixed Deck list. Cards ending in -001ST+ have the foil of a R+ while all other ST+ cards have the foil pattern of a R. HN = High Normal - A Booster Box-only suffix. Non holo. A very uncommon card. You usually get between 1 - 4 of a specific HN card per Booster Box. A total of 24 different HN cards per Series. R = Rare - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. You only get 12 different R cards per Booster Box (11 if there is a R+ in the Booster Box). A total of 16 different R cards per Series. R+ = Rare+ - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. A Rare card with gold lettering for all text except for the Skills. It also has a thin gold 'frame' on the card. Certain cards have wildly different flavor text structures i.e. B03-069R+ Mitama. Also, B01-057R+ Robin (♀) and B01-059R+ are the only Signed Rare+ cards (right now). You get 1 R+ card in every Booster Box where you don't pull a SR+. A total of 8 different R+ cards per Series. SR = Super Rare - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. You only get 4 different SR cards per Booster Box (3 if there is a SR+ in the Booster Box). The foil pattern on a SR card has a certain 'texture' on it different from R cards. A total of 12 different SR cards per Series. SR+ = Super Rare+ - A Booster Box-only suffix. Holo. Pretty much the same as a R+ except with the SR foil pattern. Most SR+ cards are Signed cards. The only exceptions are B01-051SR+ Chrom and B01-080SR+ Tharja. You usually get 1 SR+ in every 4 boxes. Sometimes it's 1 in every 5 (if you have luck like me). A total of 6 different SR+ cards per Series. PR = Promo - A Promo-only suffix. Unlike the other rarities, there are no distinctions between holo and non holo promos. It all depends on the card. Another type of card is the Marker Card. These can vary between the Starter Deck-only 'Insignia' cards and the 'full artwork' Marker Cards. The koryukai Marker Cards are both the rarest cards and the only cards with a 'brownish' back. Also, there are a total of 6 Signed cards per Series. These cards are signed by that chara's Voice Actor/Actress. Unpromoted/Special Class cards have a Silver border pattern while Promoted cards have a Gold border pattern. Hopefully this answers your rarity-related question ^_^;. Thank you very much for this fast and detailed answer! Alright, I understand now. So, if I'm given the choice between a Rare and a ST for the same price, it's better to go for the rare, then? Is there any visual difference at all? (I'm really sorry about all those questions that might sound stupid... Please tell me if I should ask elsewhere.) Also, I'm looking for both Flannel cards, Cordelia's Promo Card and this Sorcerer Odin. Is TCG Republic a good site for standalone cards? The prices are far better than on eBay, so I assumed it was... What would the average price for a whole booster be? Just go for the R versions. Holo versions (almost) always look better :3. I'm a far better source than either of them ^_~. Here's my List: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1S6BURGo0COFBjVLlBYDLywdhV1SUiU-D6OAthXuO1rk/edit?usp=sharing I also do monthly Sales where (almost) everything is much, much cheaper than what is listed. I have a Sale later on this month. The only problem is that you'll have to figure out what day it is and when I'll hold the Sale :P. The average price of a booster pack is around $3.20. If you factor in S&H and potential foreign transaction fees then that amount is absurdly highly. It's much more cost efficient to get a Booster Box. Try amiami.com since they have the best internationally-friendly prices. Sorry about the long-winded post ^_^;. ~ Sokloeum Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
