Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic 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 25.1% chance of summoning Captain of Diamonds.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Captain of Diamonds by pull 24 (6,400 gems)
  • 94 times out of 100, you’ll get Captain of Diamonds by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Captain of Diamonds by pull 160 (41,600 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 50 out of every 100 people won’t get Captain of Diamonds by the 24th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four: times, 500,000 of those players wouldn’t get Captain of Diamonds

  • 6 out of every 100 people won’t get Captain of Diamonds by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::zero::zero: times, 60,000 of those players wouldn’t get Captain of Diamonds

  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Captain of Diamonds by the 160th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::six::zero: times, 10,000 of those players wouldn’t get Captain of Diamonds

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:

I agree, he should destroy all enemies minions like Gobbler, and Gobbler should also change to fast mana.


Just pulled him. He seems meh but since he’s the only Riddles hero I have except the bear I’d keep him (and probably never level him).

This “randomly attacks a new target” thing means he does his special twice? I mean that if he hits a hero with minions and then targets another hero does he remove the minions from the second target too? And these two attacks are it, right? He can’t hit the entire team (if they all have minions)? Cause that would be cool.

If the second, random target also has a minion then he will repeat the attack on a third, random target, and so on. In that way he could conceivably attack 6 targets but that would be exceedingly rare. This “chain” behavior reminds me somewhat of the new Sir Roostley mechanic. It has very high potential damage, but very little chance in practice.

Edit - each target must have their minion removed by Cap in order for the chain to continue. Targeting Telluria mid-chain will break the chain since Telluria will resist the minion removal.


For the poll question about giving him emblems: I would love a “Only if you plan to use him” option. He is too fragile without emblems and since minion casters are primarily 5* he needs to be able to survive.

IF there were many 4* minion casters I would vote otherwise but until that time…

For all of them or just 4*? Or just 3* & 4*?

I’ll try to remember haha but it’s too late for this poll :stuck_out_tongue:

I was just referring to the CoD poll but in fairness it could apply to all 4*. With CoD it feels like the issue is forced because he really HAS to go up against 5* based on his special.

Most 4* are perfectly suited to face other 4* and SOME are so good that you want to bring them to the 5* parties too but their design doesn’t force you to do it.

Thorne +7, Sonya (costume unequipped)+20 or CoD+20 for war defense tank? IF CoD, then which nodes?

Note CoD now has a different special description/function… might want to update, @zephyr1?

Plan is to do so; just waiting on Lumi to track all the changes thru in his system :slight_smile:


I got Captain of D today. I am limited on blue heroes, and sonya is my only fast one, so i am keeping him and going to max him now.
I don’t have many blues:

Grimm / Jott / Miki / Sonya (and costume) / Kiril

Snow White + Isarnia (about 3/10 each).
Raf, unlevelled.

So, for me personally I think CoD will be a nice addition to my roster just a shame is is a paladin, so I have no emblems for him

Yeah picked up my first one (and a dupe) plus an Obakan as only real noteworthy pulls… as in they’re new additions to my “collection” so I’m happy in that regard.

Now hoping for Halloween to introduce a red 4* minion summoner, say the Headless Horseman with flaming pumpkin minions??

I maxed CoD, even put emblems (+12) on him to try and make him worthwhile.

I failed.

He has no emblems.

For newer players he may fill a need but when running against emblemed 5* teams CoD can’t hack it. Shame because minions are now ubiquitous in Diamond.

Most of the SI 4* will have more use in the present and better odds of remaining useful to you as you progress in the game. This is especially true with costumes that breathed new life into many of the SI 4* heroes (Sonya, Caedmon, Melendor. No “new life” for Rigard, he still had life and simply became elite level).

EDIT: Need to add Kiril, costume brought him back too!


Damage output needs to be way higher. Like 300% - 330%. Either that or give him grimble’s effect.

Pulled him. Grudgingly started leveling him since I had just finished my previous blue.

And then I pulled Alice the next day.

So happy I didn’t ascend Richard.

For him to have any use, there needs to be even a single 4* minion user. There’s already a 3, and a pretty good one, so they need to make a 4 star now.

Until then he can rot. And when I do eventually level him, he’ll sit at 3/60 until my inventory overflows with capes.

Like Buddy or Jott? But yeah, slim pickings in the 4* minion makers

Well, i think he can if they all have minions and you are very lucky.
