New Ninja Tower hero is released: Cobalt
This thread is for discussing strategy related to Cobalt, as well as your thoughts on him.
|Special Boost||At the start of each turn, this Hero’s Special Skill deals an additional +30% damage for 6 turns.
In battles with multiple waves, the effect is refreshed at the beginning of each wave.
|Special Skill: Katana Rain|
Ninja Heroes have a family bonus for unique heroes of the same family.
Bonus for 2 / 3 Heroes:
- 5% / 10% chance to dodge normal attacks and Special Skills
- 5% / 10% chance to counterattack with 60% / 90%< of the damage received
The two effects have individual sequential processing. So one may not trigger while the other might.
Changes from Beta
There appear to be no changes to Cobalt from last-seen Beta stats, skill, and design.

|Avoiding Overspending & Heartache|
|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 1.65% chance of summoning Cobalt.
But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.
Some useful insights:
- 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Cobalt by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
- 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Cobalt by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
- 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Cobalt by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
- 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Cobalt by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)
Putting that in Perspective
85 out of every 100 people won’t get Cobalt by the 100th pull
If 1 Million players each spent
$259.97 (US)to summon times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Cobalt
5 out of every 100 people won’t get Cobalt by the 1800th pull
If 1 Million players each spent
$4,671.53 USto summon times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Cobalt
More Insights & Reading
I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:
[WARNING] A Summons Experience - Chasing Guardian Panther - A Warning for Chasing Heroes
What exactly is a Gacha? (Read before posting things about "unfair pulls")
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.
