:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:

Or: How many summons are needed to get a HOTM?

Special thanks to @Garanwyn for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.

It’s important to remember that HOTM have very low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a HOTM.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 12.3% chance of summoning the HOTM.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 73 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 229
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 352

Putting that in Perspective

  • 27 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 270,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 229th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 229 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

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:

A post was merged into an existing topic: :balance_scale: Hero Balance Discussion: Clarissa

Got her with my first pull… lol finally I got that special luck … cannot wait to level her up


Had saved up gems for a 30-pull from Atlantis, shooting for either GM or Kage (no luck there), pretty dismal 30, but got Clarissa at the end.


Who is the better gravemaker…
Gravemaker or Clarissa?


At least tell me that she’s blond!


Hard to say.

Gravemaker counters green, but when he’s on defense you’re not gonna use green against him.Clarissas extra damage vs holy is stronger.
DoT is worse, but she has extra resistance vs poison (not super useful, as she’s purple herself, but better than nothing) and better stats.
Elemental link is hard to compare.

She’s defenitely superior on defense on her own (Paladin, defense vs Specials, Poison resistance), though the GM-Telluria-Vela defense will still be stronger.
On offense it depends on who you’re up against. GM vs green or Clarisas vs holy.


Not a blonde


Got her as well… 6 tabards in stock… Now clarissa or vitor? … I think is clarissa…
Maybi is going to help me defeating headache telluria?

Same situation here. Hoping for Burrito or Gravy but not a total loss in the end. :smiley:


I know the odds, but my account is m-effing CURSED! 50 pulls and nothing but an Atomos. I now have two Atomos and two Mok-Arrs. Why is my account cursed with crap heroes? I’d seriously rather they gave me 40 3* heros.


Currently leveling Kunchen up to 3/70, and have G. Panther sitting at 3/70, too. Think I may have to leapfrog them with Clarissa, as I also have 6 (and only 6) tabards.

Got her on 4th pull. Got lucky. Telluria at 4/66. Still need 3 tabard.


Clarissa of course. She’s way stonger on offense.

Didn’t look for her, just wanted to use tokens and after two of them, got her


I also summoned for Grave and Kage, and I got 2 Clarissa. First one is at 4/12, I am out of food :confused: I love her :slight_smile:


How many sumonings have you done?

Are we only allowed to show and discuss happy pulls to hype people up so they spend money? Am I not allowed to vent? Can I not write eff?
