Question about crystals (new player)

Hello. I am a new player, downloaded the game a few days ago, so sorry if this question has an obvious answer.

I was wondering what I should use my crystals for. I currently have around 1K of em. Is it wise to save them up for when I'm further in the game, or should I purchase character bundles or something from the store? (Im f2p btw).

Appreciate all answers :)

    Or you could just answer the question here...

    IMO don't purchase anything from the store. Hoard them for now, or use them for energy refreshes.

    I never buy faction packs that award 10-330 shards because I find I usually get 10. I'd spend on energy or refreshes

    Is it worth buying gear as a new player?

    Not really low level gear is easily farmed. at your level spend 50 a day on arena refreshes( the extra 5 not the timer refresh before you get done with your first 5) to increase your Crystal gains . Spend some on refreshes get that 600 for your guild everyday, be in a guild that wants you doing 600 a day. Hoard the rest for mk 3 carbs and other higher level gear

    #1 rule for new players: only use crystals for energy refreshes. Getting more heros only has value if the ones you have are maxed out and geared as high as you can for your level. And it's a blind pull so your just as likely to get a worthless one as a good one. And if you get a hero that you can't farm at the moment, you've wasted a pack. #2 only buy chromium packs for heros. Buying cyrstal packs for specific heros only gives you enough shards to unlock the hero or get them up one star. If it's a new hero you can't farm them except by spending more crystals in shipments. If it's a free to farm hero, you can get enough shards to unlock them in a few days so it's not a huge jump by buying the pack.

    In addition to this, buying energy refreshes allows you to level up faster, which is a good thing because you keep up with the levels on your shard better and you get access to level locked stuff faster.

    Also use energy refreshes on cantina nodes and later on mod battles/challenges. Those 3 areas are pretty much the core of building a solid account.
