:broken_heart: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache: a personal opinion note from @zephyr1 :bow_and_arrow:

I typically present Summon Portals dispassionately, providing information and letting players draw their own conclusions about the worth to them.

But I feel obligated to point out:

The Tavern of Legends Portal has the WORST odds of any Summon Portal in the entire game for getting a non-Season 1 Hero.

If you would be happy with ANY old HOTM, the odds are terrible, but perhaps acceptable for bigger spenders.

The more old HOTM you cross off the list of ones you’d be happy with, the worse the odds get.

Any players without large budgets would likely be better off spending their gems elsewhere. If you have a large budget, or have run out of literally anywhere else in the game to spend gems and still want to spend them anyway, Tavern of Legends might be for you. (I think you’d be better off just reducing your spending instead.)

For all other players — especially those who dream of a particular old HOTM from the list — I can’t recommend anything except making use of your free Legends Coins earned during the Tavern of Legends Quest, and moving on.

While some will get lucky, there is nothing to be had here but extreme disappointment for the vast majority.

You’re going to see alliance mates and Forum posters who get lucky. Please remember that the excitement of luck is contagious — but can lead to severe heartache if you pull impulsively and don’t experience the same. Celebrate their successes, but keep a level head in deciding and sticking to your own budget.

Please proceed with extreme caution when deciding on a budget for your Tavern Summons, and don’t spend more than you’d be happy to have spent on feeders.

As usual, We’ve provided an analysis of the Summon Appearance Rates farther down in this post.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an old HotM?
Below Maths is current as of July 2020 portal.
Subject to change as additional heroes are added to the Portal.

It’s important to remember that the Tavern of Legends Portal has the lowest odds for a specific hero of ANY portal… No amount of summoning will guarantee a Featured Hero.

You have a 0.05% chance of summoning a specific Past HotM from the Tavern of Legends Portal.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 0.499% chance of summoning a particular Past HotM (12.27% chance for ANY Past HotM).

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

Some useful insights:

(Each 30x Summons costs 8,000 gems or ~$79.99 USD).

# of Summons ~ USD Cost Odds for Specific Past HotM
100 $266.63 4.88%
211 $559.93 10.00%
1,386 $3,695.54 50.00%
5,990 $15,971.34 95.00%
9,209 $24,554.26 99.00%

Putting that in Perspective

  • 96 out of every 100 people will spend ~$266.63 USD and WON’T get a specific Past HotM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 960,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Featured Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people who will spend ~$24,554.26 USD and WON’T get the specific Featured Hero by the 5,990th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 5,990 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Featured Hero

Thanks for this, @Guvnor.

I will still be doing the Tavern quest and finish it without a hitch and gain them Legend Coins. But please, Small Giant, don’t give me another Gravemaker. You already gave me 1 in 2019 from Atlantis. And you also gave me 2 in 2 different ToLs. Give me Hel or Zeline or Delilah or Zimkitha instead. Thanks.


@Ultra I’m sure someone will trade with you.

Speaking of that.

Speaking of Trade Marketplace, do you guys have any idea if this is in the works already?

I’m pretty certain no. Occasional with chats on our rosters with SGG, I mention trading with them. Like “I don’t have Margaret. Want to trade?” They’re pretty quick to tell me “no trading.” :relaxed:

On topic, I had decent luck first tavern. Bought the last deal and got 3-5*, two of which were HOTM I didn’t have - Aegir and Greg. They are both leveled. Won’t buy this time though. I have Noor < 3.70 and Freya < 1.50. And only 4 Damascus blades. But neither of those are being leveled. I did one pirate oull with the 20 coins from SGG and got Finley. All resources there. At least to 3.70 as I only have 5 scopes. But that sixth one will come.

I’ll likely pull ToL in the future as there are plenty good ones I don’t have. But I need Damascus blades so there’s that. :man_shrugging:


I already know my summons: Bane + Belith! The two legendary summons! :roll_eyes:


I will be happy if I get carver… I have his costume but deleted him when I had no roster space, no I have space and want him lol.

But mine will be Ulmer, I get him a lot lately.

I’ll buy the ToL offers and save the coins for when they include Hotm and add Featured Heroes

TOL is the only event i pull 30 heroes since i never pull 30 heroes with gems,last pull i got perseus good artwork but many folks here dislike him.,hope sg will generously give me s2 HOTM this time…

3 coin pulls far:

  • Carver :face_vomiting:
  • Cyprian :roll_eyes:
  • Joon!!! :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Man I’ve lacked a 5* yellow sniper for the longest time and now I finally have one! Now just need to pull his costume lol


I have 2x Boldtusk and his costume already maxed, should i keep a 3rd and/or 4th?
I have a maxed Grimm, should I keep/max a second?
I will feed Kelile and Wu Kong.

I will keep carver as I have his costume but not him.

200 coins spent

Balthazar and Brienne.

I earn enough coins every tavern to do 2 summons (F2P) and every single time its a season 1 3*. I’ve never even had a 4*.


Same here. Just pulled my n-th Belith. I’m not even annoyed, never expected anything from this portal in the first place :joy:

I don’t spend on this event due to the horrendous odds.

Progressed far enough to get my first free coin pull and got Boril (my 3rd).

I like the variety that this event offers, but it’s an awful lot of effort just to get some expensive food.

Nashgar… Jahangir… AAANNNNNDDD… Bane. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
But the quest itself was almost a walk in the park for the first time for me, with one solid team on the bench. :muscle:

Maybe, just maybe I’ll buy the final offer. Need some WE flasks for AR anyway. If I remember correctly, it’s 30 pulls + 10 flasks.

Jahangir and Dawa.

Cya next month.


I summoned Isshtak after beating the first five stages of the event…quite disappointing honestly. So much so that I truly think that removing Rare summons from this event entirely would make this event much more rewarding and worth the continued effort. That 71.0% appearance rate for Rare Classic is just theft at this point. The Legendary summon rates are abysmal.

Anyone else think the Rare summons need to be removed from this event?


Tavern of Rares
should be the name.

Gunnar & Dawa.

Summon results.
Are you kidding?


Nah. They’re just hoping you’ll invest a few $$$ in order to get some new feeders.
