Or: How many summons are needed to get a Valhalla Featured Legendary Hero?
Below odds are current as of June 30, 2020. Odds will change as additional S3 5* heroes are added to the “non-featured” hero pool.

It’s important to remember that Season 3 Valhalla Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 3 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.43% chance of summoning Baldur.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 13 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 100
  • 51 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 500
  • 76 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 1500
  • 89 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 1500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 2073
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Baldur by pull 3186

Putting that in Perspective

  • 87 out of every 100 people won’t get Baldur by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 870,000 of those players wouldn’t get Baldur

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Baldur by the 2073rd pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 2073 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Baldur

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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:

Placeholder to complain that every discussion gets overrun by those complaining about a certain hero that was recently nerfed and who shall not be named for fear of calling attention to those complainers when this should be a thread focused on Baldur…


CCCombo breakerrrrr!

Real talk tho, I’ll be interested to see if Baldur has any use against Telluria. IIRC, his health boost special only resists direct mana reduction and not mana generation.


Correct :slight_smile:

So this just happened.

I have GM so don’t really know if I should just let him sit there on the bench.


Got him from coins! You lucky duck!!

Seriously though. Congrats on the pull!! :slight_smile:


Thanks mate. Looks like a Telluria Counter. I think Valhalla lvl with him would be not that easy. Especially hard when he goes off…

Got him in a 10 pull. Ive almost maxxed gm so he will make a great new project. Really stoked.


can I just say that these undispellable effects are becoming frigging annoying? it started off as 5-10% elemental links, now the bonuses are huge and they are ubiquitous.
E&P used to be fun, when you looked at the enemy team and though about heroes to counter those specials. now you just have to wait it out.


So you can now summon Baldur. From a gate. Is it Baldur’s Gate?
I’ll see myself out.


I had 2200 gems saved up and was able to get Baldur. Not really sold on tjis guy was hoping for Nyr but always happy to add a 5*

The timing of Baldur’s release is a bit odd to me. He’s a Guin counter when Guin is no longer the tank of choice. Will be saving my pulls for next month when hopefully Skadi is featured. Baldur doesn’t seem like he’s good for anything except being a meat shield once he boosts his own health
