:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Underwild Featured Legendary Hero?

It’s important to remember that Season 4 Underwild Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 4 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 3.3% chance of summoning this hero ( Featured ).

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

Some useful insights:

  • 9 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured this hero by pull 30
  • 28 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured this hero by pull 100
  • 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured this hero by pull 300
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured this hero by pull 898
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured this hero by pull 1380

Putting that in Perspective

Gems cost $99.99 US for 10,000. A 30x Summons costs $83.99 US.

  • 91 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured this hero by the 30th pull.
  • If 1 Million players each spent $83.99 USD to summon 30 times, 904,687 of those players wouldn’t get Featured this hero.
  • 28 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured this hero by the 100th pull.
  • If 1 Million players each spent $281.97 USD to summon 100 times, 716,133 of those players wouldn’t get Featured this hero.
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured this hero by the 1,380th pull.
  • If 1 Million players each each spent $3,863.61 USD to summon 1,380 times, 9,975 of those players wouldn’t get Featured this hero.

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:

Probably did a few things wrong…I’ll do better next time


Clarification: 600% damage happens when caster has a status ailment not the target

I’ve seen quite a few posts in other threads about this and expect to link to this post from time to time


Apparently I pay attention to the ‘normal stuff people don’t pay attention to’ tab. It belongs to hannah

Find and replace all “Hannah” with “this hero”. Probably some oddities in there, but it’s good enough.

Just got him and I’m looking forward to leveling him. Love that he is fighter class, but wish I had the emblems to throw on him lol. He has a lot of good competition for those emblems

It use to have a poll for assessing if a hero is worth summoning for nop?

I left off several poll questions.

Partially due to my sanity of creating them. But also based on which questions I find valuable.
I don’t see how “is this hero worth summoning for” was helpful so I’m open to being educated. I think the “what do you think” poll covers how strong the hero is.


I think some people should know he is not worth summoning for ahahah

Then this is a great thread to share your opinion on that topic.

IMO this hero is not worth ascending past 3.70. His entire schtick on attack is predicated on him (the caster) being debuffed. 9/10 times this means you have to force the defense to fire on you first just so you can fire him at 100% effectiveness. This is obviously not ideal since most likely your entire team or 2-3 of them are debuffed as well. Without the bonus damage, he is probably no better than Marjana or Yang Mai in terms of special damage.


I find him mainly usefull against bera tanks although have in mind that the first cast only need 6 tiles to be available which mean it will most likely be ready before any ailments is applied…

How did you get to 4 tiles? I would have thought 6 tiles.

He start with 20% mana so 1.6 tiles of value for a fast speed hero and he is down to 7 with a mana troop 29 or 23 + 2% talent. Indeed 5.4 rounded to 6

Level 29 mana troop and class talent maxes you out at +17% mana. That gets you to 7 tiles. The extra 20% starts you with 1.6 tiles. Still need 5-6 tiles.
I don’t think it’s possible to bring him down to 4 right off of the bat.


As far as I’m aware, bringing him to 4 tiles would require


So a mana bonus of at least 43%, since 42% wouldn’t be enough. A level 29 mana troop gives you 15% and fighter class emblem node 19 +2%. That means you need an additional buff of 26%. Heroes that come to mind with a buff that high would be Mica at 2x charge and costume Yunan. This assuming my math is correct.


But how many Beras, Friggs, Morels, etc do you face? I think this guy will be pretty good. Sure, he’s just a normal boring sniper, but there aren’t many red ones out there. Gefjon is better for sure as is Marjana with costume bonus for a sniper, but I don’t have either of those. Nemo will do just fine for me and he’ll get my rings.


Yes true bad calculation sorry its down to 6 still too fast probably to already have an ailment when charged most of the time :confused:

I thought I’d put some things into perspective. Here’s an alliance mate’s Gefjon.

I don’t know if it’s a max attack build or what. And for comparison here’s Nemo at 80 without any emblems.

The limit broken Gefjon has a flat power of 961*5=4805. Meanwhile at 600% Nemo does 821*6=4926. Let that sink in for a minute. It is conditional, but in the current meta the condition isn’t hard to meet and he hits hard. Of course Gefjon can deal “extra damage” by stealing minions, but that’s conditional too.

Not saying he’s the greatest hero in the game, but to those saying he’s not that great, come on people.


Let’s compare at equal footing (not mine).


I assume it’s full attack, but can’t confirm!
