: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:

I added a note to the OP but I will write it again so it’s not hidden / Lost

The second line of Glenda’s special skill simply adds 40% to existing damage from special skills.

For example normal Joon does 468% damage to a single target. With Glenda’s buff it becomes 508% damage to a single target.

Additional Explanation & Demonstration

Quoting of below


Hi @Guvnor, glenda dispelll ailments to nearby or all allies? The info seems different from last beta


Joons card says he dies 468% Damage. Was this a typo and will Glenda add 40% so that it will be 508%?

Or are you somehow calculating Joons damage using the Damage equation and assuming a constant defense stat in that equation to come up with that 368%?

Please tell me it was a typo :joy: I don’t want to know the math behind it if it’s not


Last beta said she deal 270%, but now 240% again. We know what reaction in the balancing discussion later.

Thank you for the hard work you put into these threads, @Guvnor

Just a small correction, it should say November there.


Thinking about it, she can be useful in Legendary Challenge Event tier. Her + Mist + defense debuff + elemental debuff + someone with strong special => quick and messy death by specials.


I’m thinking pair with Magni. Sadly it does not have synergy with Snow White though… :sweat_smile:
Maybe better use Thorne or Isarnia for attack more enemies targets.

C.Grimm - Magni - Glenda - …
but it only attack single target…

C.Grimm - Isarnia/Thorne - Glenda - …

I know there are Frida, KA, Lepus, but I do not have those.

I wonder what efective will be with glenda telluria and gravy will be. The new trio GTG. Any one tried in beta?

I would say not that good synergy. Main point of Glenda is to up special’s damage. Telluria’s and GM’s direct special damage is not stellar as Telluria is mostly support hero and GM does most damage through Burn. She needs some heavy hitter with her.


G. Falcon + G. Kong + C. Vivica + Mist + Glenda could be nasty. Two cleansers but still. Fire Glenda, than C. Viv, then Mist, then Falcon and Kong will kill them dead. G. Panther and Ursena instead of Falcon and Kong could work too, but I don’t have Panther.

OK, I almost never try off-color synergy team, that’s a good options…

My current purple team: C.Rigard - Panther - C.Tibs - Ursena - Killhare
Maybe I could try options like this: C.Rigard - C.Tibs - Glenda - Killhare - CB.Kiril

For red, I do not have G.Kong, maybe:
BT - Wilbur - Falcon - Glenda - Anzogh

But, Glenda need mana lvl 23 or 17 +19 wizard, that’s hard to achive, but mana troop is in progress.

I’ve been holding off on doing my Morlovia pulls for Glenda rather than Zulag. Most of the time I wait for something like this I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep until I do all of my pulls. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.


So to get the best of her special buff, she should be paired with heroes that damage all with their special. Sure, you could buff Joon +40% from 368% to 408%… or you could buff Killhare from 300% to 340% against all enemies.

I’m thinking Wilbur-Glenda-Killhare specials launched in that order and it’s lights out for just about any team.

How about Glenda - Isarnia - Killhare firing in that order…

First Quintus. No Morlovia legendary in 40 EHTs.


super, probably pairing her with a weak Vela


Looks like her Element Link Ice Minions inherit 10% attack, not 5% noted above.


Yeps same as Zulag, and obviously same for next 3 HotM too… need to update the copy-paste clipboard, @Guvnor :grin:
