Or: How many summons are needed to get a Seasonal Event Epic Hero?

It’s important to remember that Seasonal Event Heroes have extremely low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Seasonal Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 25% chance of summoning a particular Seasonal Epic Hero.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 58 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 30
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 104
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 160

Putting that in Perspective

  • 42 out of every 100 people won’t get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by the 30th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 30 times, 420,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero by the 104th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 104 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero

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:

Just pulled him from my epic hero token!

I don’t know how much game he’s gonna see, I’ve got a lot of 4* options for dark. I’m maxing Costume Tiburtus over him.

He seems less useful than : Proteus, Rigard, Sabina (if you don’t have Melendor), Tiburtus (especially with a costume)…
…But he’s more interesting than : Cheshire Cat, Ameonna, Stonecleave.

The question is : do I max only duplicates of Tiburtus for war or at least one Gaffar for more diversity in my war teams? I think I’ll go for some diversity at some point. He’s going to be benched for a while but I look forward to using him in a year or two from now! Nice skill though. He’s one of the heroes I’d have loved to have when I was in the gold arena for example.

Actually wouldn’t mind one of these my dark is lacking at the moment be good for trials as a cleric.

I like Gafar. He’s probably the strongest of the Purple 4* Snipers (not that there are many of them) so he pairs well with some of those you mentioned above.

The Healing Debuff can also come in clutch in Field Aid Wars, particularly on clean-ups where the “war bonus” timer is accellarated.


I pulled Domitia very early in the game so I guess I never really looked into 4* dark snipers but he might prove very helpful in tournaments and challenge events.

I guess I didn’t realize how lucky I was.

I got him last year, and was very happy about him. I rarely use him though he dies very easily and i have other very good 4* purples like Merlin, C. Tibs or a max emblem Proteus.

Got him woop will max nice :blush::+1:
