:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:

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

Special thanks to @Garanwyn & @zephyr1 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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

Waited until July to use my EHTs. She came in the 9th draw :grin:

Definitely the earliest I’ve ever gotten a HoTM. My Holy stack welcomes her with open arms :yellow_heart:

Same here, but it took a little more (22) for me to get her.

So I lucked out and can save my EHT for another season. I am definitely ascending her, but I need another dart. My question is how best employ her… I have Uraeus who does a similar role. Should I combine the two on a team or just use one at any given time?

I will pair her with Frosth and Freya. Devana’s minion damage could be devastating.

Congrats on your Devana @Quinn3! :partying_face::tada::tada::tada:

Congrats on your Devana (and Arman?) @Liam_K! :+1::star_struck:

I got my first HOTM Seshat during Sand Empires 2019. It was my ninth (and final) EHT pull too. :heart_eyes:

Thanks, but I still have no Damascus Blade to level any 5* :sweat_smile:

Meanwhile, my alt account got Blades 12 and 13 from a Titan and Costume Chamber bonus chest. I think RNG is just toying with me at the moment :clown_face:

Saved 24 ETT and at 8.05am in the UK I spent them. I got Roc, Devana and Isarnia (that’s actually amazing as ever since I feed my first Isarnia to Brand in error I’ve never had another one :laughing:)

Off course I just spent my last 6 darts on Uraeus so it’s going to be a while for Devana but she beats Roc I think (though I do like Rocs cleanse…)

@Liam_K Hopefully you can get your next d blade soon, well before the next Farholme Pass (d blade version of course). Ideally a nice clump of d blades! :crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers:

Sometimes, I really feel like RNG likes to play around with people. :rofl:
