=> 🍻 [May 22, 2020] Tavern of Legends Event – FAQ & Team Discussion

:dizzy: Notice About Quest Bosses & Enemies

:spiral_calendar: Planned Schedule for Tavern of Legends Event

There’s no official announcement yet, but we have indication that May 22 is the tentative date.

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.

New Secret Legendary Hero

The Legends Summon Portal includes a 0.1% chance of summoning a “secret” Legendary Hero.

The Hero’s artwork is blacked out in Beta, and the Hero’s name is listed simply as “???.”

Legendary 5*
Element: Dark/Purple
Stats: 772 / 725 / 1332
Class: Rogue

Absorb Memorize Status Ailments – This hero has an innate ability to absorb memorize status ailments. The latest 5 status ailments that are cast on the Hero will stay absorbed memorized until the Special Skill is cast.

NOTE FROM FIRST VERSION: A few Beta testers pointed out that this innate ability was likely confusingly named — “absorbing” sounds like the Hero wouldn’t receive the status ailment themselves, but they do. They also “absorb” it for use in casting themselves, but they aren’t immune to the ailments.

UPDATE: Clearly the game designers agreed with the Beta feedback about the confusing “absorbed” usage, and have changed it to “memorized.”

Speed: Very Fast
Special Skill: Absordium Deflectors

  • Deals 107% damage to all enemies.
  • All status ailments absorbed memorized by the innate ability are cast to all enemies.

Additional Information on ???

As of the second Beta, the Secret ??? Hero can now memorize status effects from every source:
Minions, stolen status effects, passive skills, items etc.

Tavern of Legends Quest

The Tavern of Legends Quest is special one, a bit different than any existing quests — it has a Special Rule:

Hero Roster Mastery
Each Hero can only be used once during this quest.

Heroes are considered used when you start a quest battle. The battles will get increasingly difficult, so plan your Teams carefully!

NOTE: I confirmed in Beta that this includes if you fail a Stage. So if you need to retry a Stage, you’ll have to select new Heroes for your Attack Team.

April 9 Update: The Recommended TP amounts were adjusted in Beta. They’re noted below as old and new.

Stage WE Recommended TP Legends Coins
1 4 1800 10
2 4 1900 2100 10
3 5 2400 2500 15
4 5 3400 2800 15
5 6 4100 3200 20
6 6 4200 3500 20
7 7 4300 3800 25
8 7 4400 4200 25
9 8 4500 30
10 10 4600 40

Relationship to Hero Academy

I asked the Small Giant Staff to explicitly confirm that Tavern of Legends doesn’t mean Hero Academy has been scrapped:

Help on cleaning my roster

Why am I instantly sceptical that there is other stuff in the summons portal… :thinking:


I’m sure there will be…


I have kinda bad feeling about HA after seeing this …


So we’ll finally know whether to keep duplicate 5* or not. Soon :smiley:

Is tavern replacing hero academy or is that a separate building while they keep thinking about the academy?

Testing this in beta wasn’t fun at all. I don’t think I can disclose pictures or information about pull rates, but I did 150 + with 3 5*.

I like this tavern, I do not like the odds is all.


I expect Hero Academy will still be coming separately.

I have the Appearance Rates posted in the top post of this thread.

I think .71 for Rare is far too steep. I think it needs to be shifted into epic and .5% for the secret hero.

At this current rate, it is truly the most Gacha thing I’ve seen. The odds just make this not worth it.


If you had a chance to ask @Petri or someone in power, that would be good to know :wink:

So another once a month event?

Hmm… I can totally understand normal s1 heroes for the s2 and s3 portals, but s1 heroes in this portal leaves a bad taste in the mouth, especially since there is no chance for hotm.

do we know what element the secret hero is?


I’ll ask, but it’s still listed as “Coming Soon” in this Beta build, and we saw an accidental preview of it a while ago, so I have no reason to think they’ve scrapped SH25 and Hero Academy.

Yes, it’s Dark/Purple — I’ve added that to the top post of this thread, my apologies for omitting it.


I think we all knew they weren’t going to put the old HOTM’s in HA where they could be obtained for free lol that would’ve cost SG a lot of potential revenue. Figured something like this was coming. Wondering where a new event fits in. Maybe the same week as costumes?


This seems great for veteran players with incredibly deep rosters.

I don’t like it for no other reason than it feels like I have to plan like Alliance Wars in PvE content.


We’ve seen HOTM in Hero Academy in a past Beta.

Please don’t jump to conclusions that Tavern of Legends means Hero Academy won’t include HOTM. It’s premature to speculate.


Looking at calendar and trying to find a slot… The third Thursday-Friday?

The quest and portal in Beta are set to expire in a little under 13 days — I’m not sure if that’s just for Beta, or if it’s intended to be a longer-running event in the live game.

I’ll see if I can find out.

For anyone curious, if you run a hero with status ailment protection the new 5* still absorbs the ailment and is able to cast it back.
Grazul is looking pretty good again. Lets hope that is how it is intended


Also I do not know if it is just enemy cast, because I dont have any springville heroes, but I assume if you use Killhare her ailment will be absorbed and you can cast it on the enemy.
