    Hi all,
    Is the $40 Starter Pack the best value/bang for your money?
    Asking because i'm considering getting it.

    This is the most eco way to get going in EU. $40 starter pack should keep a new player going for a couple of months, plus you get a UL gun UL amp and UL scope. I am level 46 and have been playing a few years. I bought the gold pack instead of a normal depo because as previously mentioned you are getting a lot of usable items for $12, i regularly use the gun and the amp is nearly worth the cost alone.
    If it killed you
    It isn't because you have the wrong armour,
    you just need a bigger gun

    The starter packs are worth it, barbarella is cool gun, downside is account bound but worth it imo.

    I'm very glad I purchased the starter pack.

    The IO-Pulse healing device is economical (~10 heals per pec). I actually still use it on level 20 mobs, because similarly efficient heal kits that heal stronger around around 2000 ped ($200).

    The armor is efficient, it doesn't protect a LOT, but for low level mobs, it's going to protect you without cost a ton in repairs. It also increases your speed by 8% which is a unique armor set bonus.

    The gun, especially with the amp attached, is very efficient. With amp, it does 2.938 damage per pec spent. This is fantastic economy for such low level hunting.

    What I intend to do is buy the Starter Pack on my current CC period and when the new CC period begins i will deposit $100 dollars for $1000 PED.

    Buy the starter pack and play at least a few months before making such a big deposit. Or spread it out. Deposit $ 10 every month or something. It is very easy to spend 1000 PED in an afternoon if you don't know what you're doing.

    Stick with puny mobs for a long time. This will allow you to skill up evade which will be important in reducing armor repair and healing costs once you do step up.

    Step up to higher mobs should be a slow process. Remember that higher mobs can equal higher losses.

    You can kill a LOT of puny mobs for 1000 PED.
