Although common among free-to-play titles, grab bags or gambling packs are not always popular. With a heavily restricted, and highly monetized, hybrid free-to-play model, "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is no stranger to the game's version of grab bags called "shipments."
One shipment; consisting of the Cartel Packs, was available in the Cartel Market. These packs were retired; however, as a new shipment is released. This new shipment consists of the Contraband Packs.
These packs have a whole new set of exclusive items. Ride upon a small pleasure barge, pick up a new fancy weapon, or go bare foot with these new goods. For 320 Cartel Coins the Enforcer's Contraband Pack can be purchased while the Regulator's Contraband Pack is 160 Cartel Coins. Check out all the items here.
But just like an infomercial, that's not all! These new packs usher in a new way of obtaining retired items from the Cartel Packs. Each time a Contraband Pack is opened reputation can be earned with the Contraband Resale Corporation. This reputation, and the currency rarely found in the packs, can be used alongside credits to buy things from the retired packs. Find out more here.
