Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary 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 2% chance of summoning Black Knight.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 18 times out of 100, you’ll get Black Knight by pull 100
  • 63 times out of 100, you’ll get Black Knight by pull 500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Black Knight by pull 1500
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Black Knight by pull 2300

Putting that in Perspective

  • 82 out of every 100 people won’t get Black Knight by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 820,000 of those players wouldn’t get Black Knight

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Black Knight by the 1500th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 1500 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Black Knight

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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:

This guy is really great, I absolutely love him.

At first, I thought he was a pure defense hero, but it appears he’s excellent in attack too. Activate his skill before some enemies are about to use their offensive skills, and this saves you. Either deadly sniper attack that do only 1 damage, or AoE attacks that do only 1 damage to BK and not the other heroes. It’s still luck based, but 50% is already a lot.

I haven’t faced him a lot in raid, so can’t really judge how he competes.

Second 5* for this event, I’m stoked!
I was hoping for some good tank options between last Atlantis and Avalon, now I have to choose, Black night, fresh minted Guinevere, Kunchen or Delilah.

Kunchen has competition in some strong Darks. Will have plenty of time to make up my mind, but BK has materials ready to go and I need a strong Fire 5*. So looks like he might win the tank race for me.

Real real hot tip with BK.


I like that. Thanks for sharing @Guvnor, have to keep it in mind if I run across a decent riposter. Just pulled +20 emblems off Boril for Kunchen and think I may have Reset token remorse.

Awesome information! I was lucky enough to snag BK this event and I’m currently lvling him (only tier 2 in the low lvl 20s). Once I can get him to at least max tier 3 I’ll most likely end up using him as my tank…although I think a max tier 4 Kunchen is probably better…either way I’ll make up my mind when the time comes. Only thing is I don’t have Elena…I do have others that have the “counter” ability but I’m going to have to level them further in order to make them viable in Defensive teams (alliance wars or otherwise). Thanks for doing the research on this! :smiley:

I dont tend to try to do this as part of a defence team, just love using the synergy in offence

This right here is the magic I’m talking about!!!

Perfect synergy!

Made even better by Costume Elena which does 155% counter!!!

Poor Magni didn’t know what hit him :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:


Am I missing something? I thought they counter attacked damage received, wouldn’t that be 1 damage received off just a flesh wound?

Counterattack applies before Just a Flesh Wound, so the damage amount reflected is full, and then the damage taken is reduced.

Wow! Ok, cool. Thanks @zephyr1, someone mentioned something along the lines of synergy with riposte heroes yesterday, I just didn’t realize how it worked.

Edit: guess it was 8 days ago. I must’ve skimmed too fast when I read the post.

In all seriousness though, very cool interaction, and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Hey now!

Not really clunky imo cause (even when not firing specials) the damage hurts like hell from the tiles they give off haha

Well, Elena certainly brings the tile damage. Not convinced about BK’s tiles sans specials firing. If they ever fully animate all the attacks in the game, not just specials, I’d have to imagine BK wielding the Penetrator sword from Saints Row 4 and flopping that thing off enemy helmets when he strikes with tiles…

Haha, keeping on subject

A post was merged into an existing topic: :crown: [Jul 2020] Knights of Avalon Challenge Event – Guides, Discussion & Summoning Results

There is no other color for him. There is no Black element. Plus, the Black K-nigget, (Monty Python reference), has a red boar face on his armor.
