This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the May 2023 HOTM, Suzuna

All Information from Beta is Subject to Change!

Don’t get attached

Details from beta, especially brand-new beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual hero release.

It’s incredibly common that heroes 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 skills to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to stats to be made.

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

Special thanks to @Garanwyn 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 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:

Quite nice hotm. Cleanse, reflect and heal but to 3 heroes.


Just make it extra healing and I’ll give her my 6 telescope :smiley: I’ll don’t hate her even she will heal 3.

Reflect is a great ability. Giving that to a fast hero (and HOTM to boot) it is right that it is for three.
Best blue HOTM in a loooong time


she is an ok hero, good for tank position or protect heroes near her

She’s fast though. That is helpful. Being a HOTM has limitations.


I’m not so impressed. Her special is not really useful for other roles than tank in defence, but for this her def/HP stats are too low and 5% dodge would not help much.
For sure she is better than Klaern or Balur, but this is no big deal. So this “best” rank is only because the competition is nonexistent :wink: . If looking further back than a year, Iris is much better.
She is maybe about on par with Zulag, who is 2,5 years old…


Zulag was dark.

Fast cleansers are at a premium, and reflect, at any speed, the same.
So considering that this is a HOTM, whom many more will get… quite good (in my opinion)


yeah, I was just thinking that Klaern and Balur make this one seem great :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m not really a fan of caster and nearby, although at least it is a reflect.


It’s priority cleanse as well. Not a lot of heroes have priority cleanse, let alone have it at fast


Yep. A defensive hero with not-so-defensive stats. Quite good, but not top. I would think hard whether to give her telescopes, but I always was short of them…

Reflects just status ailments and stacks, so snipers can deal as much damage as they want.
I’m not sure about this hero, I won’t chase her.


I’ll proudly give her a big pass.


So, she’s a combo of Bennu and the nerfed M&M and does nothing better than either. Cool.

I like the reflect stacks and ailments, but other than that… Not in love with the hero.

This hero seems like fools gold imo. She will be good for only the tank and maybe vs some blue teams that don’t bypass buffs

I rly need a blue dmg dealer and there is third in the row HOTM which is pretty bad in this aspect. However she may be usufull in offence, this cleanse and reflect is ok. Hope she will get the buff before.

Useful but not groundbreaking. Your typical HOTM

Does the reflect work like Elradir’s reflect?
