Please include some comments about what you think of Costumed Ariel when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Costumed Ariel, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Costumed Ariel (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Costumed Ariel), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
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 Costumed Ariel.

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 Costumed Ariel by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Costumed Ariel by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Costumed Ariel by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Costumed Ariel by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Costumed Ariel by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Costumed Ariel

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Costumed Ariel by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Costumed Ariel

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:

And here she is in all her glory.


Managed to get her this morning from gems i had piled up :heart_eyes: Got the mats ready for her, just need the emblems next. :blush:


She looks hideous, although other Atlantis costumes are visually even worse. :expressionless:

I don’t want them.

I envy you a lot. however, I do not agree that only his costume is in evidence. I would have used so many gems for Ursena, Poseidon and Kageburado. Besides Ariel of course

but are you kidding I hope … have you read what Ariel’s costume does? have you read what others do? come on … you can’t say that


Nothing we haven’t seen already… :rofl:

So no, I’m not kidding - I have already 5 health boosters, if I get Ariel or not will not make such huge difference. I have her original card and she’s fine as is. At this point, I’m ok with making decisions based solely on the aesthetics.


I prefer the original…

I think the costumes were the best news Small Giant has given to this game. Ariel with the costume manages to be stronger and this is objective.

I just pull her today :smiley:


And that Eel is Flotsam or Jetsam?


I think Ariel’s costume is a buff. She gets better defensive stats being a sorceror class and she heals 20 more health than Heimdall. I would get her if I could. She’s been on my want list since I started playing 2 years ago


I already had Ariel +20 defense path. Here is what what costumes looked like with normal that way. I don’t think I will reset her as I will use both.



being a sorceror class, she can get to 920s, I believe on defense. I think 960s, or 970s with LBs


Neither… Ariel has learned that a pretty face and voice is not enough if you don’t have power, so she traded them for sorcery, and turned her best friend Flounder into a moray eel.


Just a suggestion to the devs (don’t know how to tag them) but her card said princess of atlantis, wouldn’t her costume sound better as enchantress of Atlantis?

Yes, it should be “Enchantress” like Natalya and Morgan Le Fay.




Thank you!! Enchanter of Atlantis just doesn’t fit :rofl:
