Free-to-play SWGoH players can acquire a 7-star character from the Special May Trove Pack, which requires 8000 Shard Tokens.
Players can explore a distant corner of the Star Wars Galaxy in this exhilarating video game, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes (SWGoH).
Die-hard Star Wars fans are aware that the month of May, especially May the 4th, is an exciting time for the franchise. During May 2023, players can acquire a special Trove Pack.
May the 4th
May the 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, is a phenomenon that now transcends the English language pun that inspired it. The day was inspired by the classic phrase, “May the Force be with You”, which was first heard in the Star Wars: A New Hope film.
The earliest use of the phrase, “May the 4th be with you” dates back to 1978, one year after the release of A New Hope. Since then, Star Wars fans across the globe have celebrated the franchise on this day.
Since SWGoH was inspired by Star Wars, the game’s developer, EA Mobile, hosts an in-game event to celebrate Star Wars Day annually.
During the month of May 2023, players can claim their free May the 4th inbox gift and look forward to special items, including a new portrait, title and unit shards, among other items.
SWGoH: Special May Trove Pack
There are several features that players can enjoy to celebrate Star Wars Day, such as Marquee events, a free May the 4th login calendar, an updated raid system and double drops.
Most of these activities are time-limited, which means that some of the features have already been removed from the game.
That being said, players can still obtain the Special May Trove Pack in SWGoH. The pack’s official description reads: “Celebrate May with this special offer that guarantees 330 shards for a single character!”
This means that free-to-play players can procure a 7-star character by simply using an in-game currency to purchase the Special May Trove Pack.
There are several character shards that you can acquire in the pack, however, every character listed has an equal chance to drop. To purchase this pack, players must open the in-game store and not the web store.
In the Shard Store, you will be able to purchase the Special May Trove pack, which costs approximately 8000 Shard Tokens.
These tokens can be procured by converting sheds and blueprints for characters and ships that have maximum stars. Keep in mind that this conversion takes place automatically when you open the Shard Store.
How to increase a character’s star level
As previously explained, Shards can be acquired by converting shards and blueprints for characters and ships that have maximum stars. This, however, means that you have to increase your character’s star level for the conversion to take place.
To increase a character’s star level, players have to collect shards. You can acquire shards from mission rewards, daily quests or in-game gifts. However, you can also receive specific character shards by completing the difficult version of a specific stage.
The chances of a shard dropping are quite low, which means that players may have to invest some time into SWGoH to procure shards.
What happens when you get a 7-star character you already have?
There is a possibility that you will receive a 7-star character from the Special May Trove Pack that you already have in your collection.
However, according to YouTuber AhnaldT101, if you get a character you already have at 7-stars, you will get a 4950 Shard Shop Currency refund if you complete the 7-star character conversion.
As previously explained, Shard Tokens can be procured by converting shards and blueprints for characters and ships with maximum stars.
This means that if you acquire a 7-star character that you already have at 7-stars, you can complete the conversion and receive 4950 Shard Tokens.
Is the Special May Trove Pack permanent?
Unfortunately, the Special May Trove Pack is a limited-time offer, which means that when the time depletes, it will be removed from SWGoH. Once it is removed from the game, you will no longer be able to purchase the pack.
Allegedly, the pack will be removed from the game in approximately 5 days. This means that players have until the 16th or 17th of May 2023 to purchase the pack.
However, this means that you have enough time to increase the star-level of your characters to obtain enough Shard Tokens.
