Please include some comments about what you think of Bertulf when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Bertulf, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Bertulf (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Bertulf), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Rare Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Rare 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 33.2% chance of summoning Bertulf.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 55 times out of 100, you’ll get Bertulf by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Bertulf by pull 75 (19,700 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Bertulf by pull 115 (30,100 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 45 out of every 100 people won’t get Bertulf by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 446,630 of those players wouldn’t get Bertulf * 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Bertulf by the 75th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :seven::five: times, 48,675 of those players wouldn’t get Bertulf
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Bertulf by the 115th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::one::five: times, 9,710 of those players wouldn’t get Bertulf

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:

OK so if Stats hold up on Bertulf. If fully emblemed and limit broke, I feel like this could be a replacement for Wu (no emblems). I haven’t been blessed with Miki or Tarlak, so this could be a reasonable replacement?


I am waiting for him too for the same purpose…
I could not pull Sergei either :frowning:


Bertulf might be much better, economically, than Sergei. It costs a lot of mana pots to get that attack boost. And @g8slord does have a point…limit broken, he might be a 4* in disguise.


Even those having Sergei, Miki and/or Tarlak can use him in Rare tier events and I think if I get him I will power level him to improve my score.


Yes, for Rare tier in the tournament he can be useful for score improving.

He is the reason why i want to do some pulls this event. I dont want any of the 4 star, a 5 star would be a bonus, i just want Bertulf. He will completely change my gameplay im sure about that.


Well did a 10-pull just for the chance to get him (other heroes would be a bonus, but not expected) and was lucky enough to pull him. Also got the other 3* event hero. I might fully emblem +lb him and start using on dark titans and also propably will use him on every rare/epic event stages from now on. Didn’t have enough feeders yet to max him, but maybe by tomorrow.

Please gives us an update on his performance when your ready. Thank you.


Someone propably will get him maxed faster than me, but I’ll try to!

I have him maxed and limit broken. I already like him way better than Sergei since he charges faster. I’d put him above Sergei for non-yellow titans. I already have G. Panther so I will probably use Bertulf over Sergei there, too. I don’t have Miki or Tarlak.

Just finished my Bertulf, great hero, I liked a lot


Starting to sound like the Magic 4* are disappointing. I, too, am disappointed by Sergei’s slow charge to 2x for that attack buff.

Can you post stats after LB and emblems so that I can compare to Wu?

yes but remember the first charge is VF and is elemental defense down.

The key is the special itself. It’s the same attack boost given by Tarlak (who I don’t have). The damage potential of Wu and Ranvir (both of which I do have) will always be higher, but this type of boost allows for more consistent damage without the disruption to special accuracy.


Thank you @Itchitaka . I was wondering about the surviveability, so wanted to compare Defense/Health to Wu. I agree I like the “Tarlak” style buff better. What path did you take? Def/Health?

I went with Def > Health > Attack.


Thank you for sharing this image.
