Are the Phoenix characters rare, ultra-rare, or what?

Because I haven't unlocked a single one. I have plenty of Volus though. I'm wondering what packs I should be buying in my useless attempts to unlock Phoenix characters. I've been buying Reinforcements and Premium Specter packs. Just carry on with those and sacrifice a chicken to the RNG?

Rare.

You think a mere chicken will satisfy the RNG? I had serious problems with unlocking the second Phoenix as well. But when the new dlc came I decided to sacrifice my 3 favorite cows (they were all virgins), but the mighty RNG didn't find me worthy of the new dlc stuff but was merciful enough to give me the Phoenix character I no longer cared about.

Despite the Volus having the UR tag they are just as common as any rare character. It was likely a minor joke by the bioware team.

Hmm. Rare huh? So would it be wiser to invests in regular Specter packs then?

And if you sacrificed three cows and only got one, I may have to bump it up to virgin.

They have they're own slot in the RNG, so when it comes down to it , ONLY Volus can fill that spot.

Eh, they seem to be rarer than Rare, but less so than UR. I hadn't played for a while before they were released, so I had in the neighborhood of 12 classes locked, and managed to max all of them before unlocking the Volus Engineer, and had two adept cards at that point.

I was getting IV consumables for a while before they were finally maxed.

I think that was the reason why.
