Don’t get too attached
Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.
It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.
So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.
The launch date for Season 3 is February 27

Unlike the Season II Atlantis Summon Portal, the Season 3 Valhalla Summon Portal currently includes only a single Featured Hero, and no returning Heroes of the Month (HOTM).
The current Featured Hero in Beta is Fenrir. This is likely, but not certain, to indicate that the first Featured Hero in the live game will be Fenrir as well.
As we do not know the release date for Season 3 yet, we can’t yet speculate which HOTM will be available during the first Valhalla Summon.
The Valhalla Portal currently includes the following Heroes:
- All of the Season 1 Classic Heroes
In total, for Season 3 Heroes that’s:
- Legendary: 6
- Epic: 5
- Rare: 5
Heroes we’ve seen in Beta that are not currently included:
As you may know from other threads, I held off on publishing the initial Appearance Rates, as we had been explicitly told that they weren’t finalized, and were incorrect.
Beta has now been updated with a new version, which includes updated Appearance Rates, and the Build Note indicates that these have been “fixed,” so I’m now publishing them.
I’m including the original Appearance Rates, indicated by
old rate and , so that people who have misinformation from leaked Beta information can see that their information is outdated and incorrect.
Classic Season 1 Heroes
- Rare Classic Hero:
- Epic Classic Hero:
- Legendary Classic Hero:
Season 3 Heroes
- Rare Season III Hero:
- Epic Season III Hero:
- Legendary Season III Hero:
- Legendary Featured ‘Fenrir’: 0.3%
- Legendary Hero of the Month: 1.3%
You’ll be pleased to know that my first test Summon in the Valhalla Summon Portal today was Dawa, so things are working perfectly as usual.
Analysis of Summon Appearance Rates
This table shows the cumulative probability of different Summon events, based on a total number of Summons (1x, 10x, 30x, 100x, 500x, 1500x)
Please note that NO occurrence is ever actually 100%; the 100% entries in the table below indicate cumulative probabilities sufficiently close to 100% that they are expressed as such for simplicity. All other numbers are rounded to the nearest 0.1%.
|Get At Least 1 Season 1 Hero||32.4%||98.0%||99.9%||100%||100%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 Season 3 Hero||67.6%||99.9%||100%||100%||100%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 5* (excluding HOTM Bonus Draw)||2.5%||22.4%||53.2%||92.0%||99.9%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 Season 3 5*||1.6%||14.9%||38.4%||80.0%||99.9%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 of Featured Season 3 Hero||0.3%||3.0%||8.6%||26.0%||77.7%||98.9%|
|Get At Least 1 Non-Featured Season 3 5*||1.3%||12.3%||32.5%||73.0%||99.9%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 Season 3 4*||14.6%||79.4%||99.1%||100%||100%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 of a Particular Season 3 4*||2.92%||25.6%||58.9%||94.8%||100%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 Season 3 3*||51.4%||99.9%||100%||100%||100%||100%|
|Get At Least 1 of a Particular Season 3 3*||10.28%||66.2%||96.1%||99.9%||100%||100%|
Putting That in Perspective
If 1 million players each did 10 Summons, 776,000 of those players would NOT get a Season 3 or Season 1 5* Hero
If 1 million players each did 100 Summons, 200,000 of those players would NOT get a Season 3 5* Hero
If 1 million players each did 500 Summons, 223,000 of those players would NOT get the Featured Season 3 5* Hero (Fenrir)
Bonus Ascension Material Chest
Much like the Season II Atlantis Summon Portal, the Season III Valhalla Summon Portal features a Bonus Ascension Material Chest, which contains a guaranteed Rare or Epic Ascension Material, and can also contain Rare and Epic Crafting Materials.
Also like Season II, the Bonus Chest fills with each 10 Summons, and there is a limit of 9 Chests per event.
Your progress towards the next chest also carries over to the next Valhalla Summon event if you still have chests in stock, just like with the Atlantis Summon.
The Summon Costs for the Valhalla Portal currently match the Atlantis Portal:
- Single Summon: 100 Valhalla Coins or 350 Gems
- Summon x10: 3000 Gems
- Summon x30: 8400 Gems
