This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Ametrine.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Ametrine and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Ametrine worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Ametrine on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Ametrine ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Ametrine as an opponent?

  • Would you give Ametrine Barbarian Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Ametrine when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Ametrine, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Ametrine (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Ametrine), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Epic Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 17.5% chance of summoning Ametrine.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 69 times out of 100, you’ll get Ametrine by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Ametrine by pull 156 (46,800 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Ametrine by pull 240 (62,400 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 31 out of every 100 people won’t get Ametrine by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 309,196 of those players wouldn’t get Ametrine
  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Ametrine by the 156th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero: times, 56,280 of those players wouldn’t get Ametrine
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Ametrine by the 240th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four::zero: times, 10,013 of those players wouldn’t get Ametrine

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

Thank you for setting this up @PlayForFun

Ametrine is one of the elite 4* heroes, have two copies at +20 and she delivers. The dispel before damage is key. When she was released Kage was the only other one with that, now there are several more but it remains a a hugely useful ability.

Excellent stats, does real damage and can survive a bit. One to wish for if you don’t have her. She ought to age well because her special is so good even in these days of new mega heroes.

Yeah, I don’t use her as much now since my Dark team is stacked, but I love how she just laughs at Krampus/BK’s taunt or Sif’s riposte and hits multiple targets before dispelling at 2nd and 3rd charge.

She was useful back when BK was the tank of choice.

Pulled her :sunglasses: What emblem path yah take.

This is what i did with her

I did att>def>hp
20 emblems gets her to 827 attack

One was all out attack, she has been stripped of emblems (temporarily) so those can be used by a shiny new 5* Barbarian.

The remaining Ametrine is Def/HP

Leaving her like this:

I expect that she will be limit broken once I have the materials. I chose to keep her in this version because I want her to live longer and value her debuff more highly than her pure damage. Her damage is decent but she facilitates bringing several other AoE hitters that do the actual finishing and for that she needs to live.

IF I were only using her in 4* arenas I would have chosen the attack path version but vs. emblemed and Limit Broken 5* she simply needs to live.
In a 4* universe she is a killer, in 5* she is a support hero in my view.

Does anyone have a full attack path talent + LB Ametrine AND a purple elemental def down hero (panther, sergei)?

I would like to see her exact hit on second charge (9tile) against a full talent and LBd defense, supported by the elemental def down.

I have LB Ametrine but DEF/HP….just working on Sergei,…max now and it is going +20 LB DEF/HP…

@Jronny here you go…





I tried my emblem path which was a bit of both. I wanted her to have better hits but also more health and def so split it pretty evenly ignoring the mana recharge and healing 2% more paths.

She was MVP in one of my raid tourney flags today - her 3x charge killed off Griffin, Cilian and Aodhan. With only Gormek left from the enemy, I won easily - everyone on my side had less than half health and Lancelot was dead. Go go Ametrine!
