:boom: Summons Availability :boom:
Or: Where can I get this Hero From?
Past HotM are available from a number of locations depending on their age.

As Delilah has been released for >24 months, she can ONLY be summoned in the Tavern of Legends Portal.
She can also be “Trained” using the Hero Academy Level 10.

Tavern of Legends
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are added to the summons pool in the Tavern of Legends Portal.

Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are also added as a possible outcome of Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an old HotM?
Below Maths is current as of September 2020.
Subject to change as additional heroes are added to the Portal.

It’s important to remember that the Tavern of Legends Portal has the lowest odds for a specific hero of ANY portal… No amount of summoning will guarantee a Featured Hero.

You have a 0.25% chance of summoning a specific Featured Past HotM from the Tavern of Legends Portal (0.0125% for a specific Non-Featured).

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 2.47% chance of summoning a particular Featured Past HotM (0.12% chance for a specific Non-Featured & 12.27% chance for ANY Past HotM).

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

Some useful insights:

(Each 30x Summons costs 8,000 gems or ~$79.99 USD).

# of Summons ~ USD Cost
Odds for Specific Featured Past HotM Odds for Non-Featured Past HotM
10 $26.00 2.47% 0.13%
30 $74.99 7.23% 0.03%
100 $250.98 22.14% 1.24%
500 $1,251.88 71.39% 6.06%
1,500 $3,749.63 97.66% 17.10%
5,000 $12,500.75 99.9996% 46.48%
10,000 $24,998.50 99.9999999986% 71.35%

Putting that in Perspective

If 100 people were to complete 100x summons, spending ~$250 USD:

  • 27 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 78 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 99 WON’T get a specific Non-Featured Past HotM

If 100 people were to conduct 1500x summons, spending ~$3,750 USD:

  • 1 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 23 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 83 WON’T geta a specific Non-Featured Past HotM

If 1 Million players each completed 10,000 summons, spending ~$25,000 USD:

  • 1 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 1 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 286,500 WON’T geta a specific Non-Featured Past HotM

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:

So, I’m really hoping to pull Delilah this Atlantis. She looks really strong! Her card says: recovers 33% health for all and summons a guardian minion for each ally with 13%HP and 16% attack.

For how many turns are the minions active? Her card doesn’t specify. I was told they fire every turn but just how MANY turns would that be? :thinking::slight_smile:

Until they are destroyed, which might be a couple of normal hits

You can watch a battle with her here to see how it works

The little helmet icons and ■■■■■■■■ blue animations are the minions


That’s really cool. I like her better than Ariel although Ariel is probably better. :relaxed:

One 10 pull and failed :sob::sob:

Would you Ascend Delilah prior to Vivica?

In a heartbeat :slight_smile:

Only Viv if you also got the costume


Already have Viv maxed (no costume, I mean original costume), and now get Delilah, have 4 darts, still waiting 2 darts! Which one should I ascend, my other holy is Onatel 3.70, Neith 3.70, and 2nd Poseidon.

Hola jin i have a few healers and since kunchen and puss n boots were capped along with albi I took onatel up first. It honestly was a very tough decision as I have delilah and viv and Poseidon. All three are useful and all three have skills for the whole team, one of the toughest choices but since I’m hoping for telluria in march (saving saving lol) I felt like onatel would go great with future teams that can be put together when also thinking about S3 heroes

as always, depends on your roster and what you need. but more than one 5star healer is good to have.
I also pulled delilah and will max her out directly (have the darts in stock and would have ascended ranvir after atlantis, in case she did not show up). although I just realized, during set up of defense for current tourney (bloody battle 5star no blue), that I am a little healer heavy on the 5 stars.
but delilah can be pretty annoying in defense team - especially with the fighter talent. and she will fit great in my dark holy attack team replacing probably inari, who often dies before casting… average speed fits well to her also.
my neith is taking dust at 1.1 (together with justice), do not see so much potential in her.
onatel is definitely good hero, but only trouble if board is really bad (which applies to many heroes). on attack team I cannot judge as I do not have her.
Posy: i would do dupes only to 3.70 for variety in team compositions.
so yeah, if you have adequate fire power on the five stars, i would go delilah probably - but perhaps an additional holy joins your roster anyhow while waiting for four darts…
(btw: any chance you trade me you second posy?! was after him last month…)

OK, great :sunglasses:

too many competiiton: Boldtusk, Poseidon, Kingston, Panther, Magni. But I will bring her +1 at least for chance revive proc.

Onatel on attack team is great, mana steal (undispelled).
I enjoy and always bring her in my yellow raid, Onatel 3.70 is sturdy, and my opinion is very good tools to use for next Pirate event, because purple reflect, so no Proteus means Onatel will be good choice for mana control.

I mean I have 4 darts, waiting 2 more, sorry, I’ll edit my post.

Yes, we can trade with Frida, Evelyn or Kage :handshake: deal?

Well, finally, while waiting darts, will bring her to 3.70.

I have maxed Zim, Joon, Kingston, Alice, BT, Rigard, Kiril, Sabina, Grimm, Sonya, Buddy, Peters, Jackal, Falcon, Wu Kong, Wilbur, Proteus, Tiburtus.

Evelyn 3:70, Onatel 3:70, Joon 3.70, Viv 2.46, Mother North 2:40, Vela 3:30.

At 1.1 = just picked up Poseidon, Ariel, Delilah, and JF

I am missing 2 darts for my next yellow. Should I max Delilah or Onatel next?

Personally I would go Delilah since you have some good maxed yellow hitters already and it’s good to have a 5* healer. And her revive as fighter class and minions are just the miller lite on top.


I got Delilah a long time ago from Atlantis, and was too new then to know anything except that she was my first 5* hero and seemed awesome.

She’s still awesome.


If I’m starting on Ariel in addition to either Onatel or Delilah, would you still recommend Delilah? Thanks!
