For those that prefer watching a video version:
Below you will find a few example packs available in the game. We assigned certain values to the Gems and Tickets and came up with a formula that shows how good each of those packs are. The higher the value in last column, the better.
Keep in mind that below you won't find any of the newbie packs that actually have the best value in the game currently and are worth buying anyway if you plan to spend. The table below shows packs that are permanently in the game.
|Pack||Price ($)||Gems||Tickets||SSR Shards||Value|
|Campaign I||19.99||10 000||-||-||500|
|NIKKE Master IV||99.99||8 000||30||50||215|
|Monthly Recruitment IV||99.99||8 000||40||-||200|
|Growth Pack III||99.99||8 000||-||100||170|
|First Purchase 6200||79.99||12 400||-||-||155|
|First Purchase 2300||29.99||4 600||-||-||153|
As you can see, after the first 3 packs, the value drastically drops - the packs are simply overpriced compared to others and only good to buy if you are a dolphin or a whale.

As usual in most games, the monthly gem pack that gives you some gems upfront and then daily for 30 days (3300 in total) is the best thing you can buy.
Ignore the high price - it's my local currency. The $ price can be found in the table above.
The Battle Pass costs $19.99 in NIKKE and while initially we thought it was a scam, after comparing it to other packs, it's actually one of the better things to buy if you look at the Gems and Shards only. It also comes with a skin - a different one every season.
Full list of content:
- 1 skin
- 25 Regular Tickets
- 50 SSR Shards (60% to obtain SSR character, so it's a bit RNG)
Along the Monthly Gems packs, the first-time-clear packs are another staple of the gacha genre. In NIKKE while the number of gems received here is lower compared to other idle games (here you get 800 gems per chapter and most other games gives you enough for a 10-pull), you have to keep in mind that NIKKE requires only 3 dupes to max limit break a character. Anything after you reach MLB will just provide you with 2% stat bonus per dupe.
In total, for clearing up to Chapter 10, you receive 10k Gems.
NIKKE Master IV
This pack on top of the usual Gems and Tickets, also gives you a T9 gear selector that will give a big power boost to one of your characters, especially in the early game.
It's a great pack for dolphins and whales to get a head start.
