*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Goseck when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Goseck, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Goseck (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Goseck), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

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

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Goseck.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Goseck by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Goseck by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Goseck by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Goseck by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Goseck by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Goseck

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Goseck by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Goseck

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:

Of the 5* Gargoyles, this one i wouldn’t mind getting. Imagine this one with Costume Panther.


goseck will be a very interesting tank as we can mainly see purple tanks in war and he will be a beast in VF


…or even with Khonshu.

Is Goseck still pretty good even after being changed to Barbarian class and his damage reduced? Just wondering because I know his maximum damage is 650% but it’s not like you will be firing at 1hp very often since he can’t revive any more.

Hi! I’m not at home, so my options are limited but still, I think it is a ‘must see’ category, so I had to upload. Enjoy! :slight_smile:


Thank you for sharing, it’s a good reminder that you don’t need Panther as he pairs super well with Sergei too. It’s just a funny strategy of having to get him on low health for his maximum effectiveness :joy:

My only problem with this hero is the barbarian. Too many purple barbarian. And im tired of the class change to barbarian, if anything, I think paladin would compliment his use. He should of stayed at a fighter and that bonus damaged reduced even more.


Already found a bug. He should be immune against poison on his own, but apparently he is not yet. :smiley:

@PlayForFun who should we tag? Thanks!


yep. That’s a confirmed bug. Goseck should have been able to resist it. Think the staff should be notified.

I think it’s a visual issue.
At 6:15 in the video you posted, you can see that the gargoyle mark passive effect has appeared and has not been damaged by poison.
(Motega has taken 93 damage from poison, but Goseck hasn’t.)

Crazy to see a hero with almost 1300 ATK :hushed:

And they nerfed Azmia :joy::joy:


I think this is working as exected. (According to what I saw in Beta earlier)

The family bonus says that the hero is immunte to Poison damage but not the ailment itself.

So the hero can recieve the ailment, but when the damage is applied, then the hero will resist the damage.

It was worked like this in Beta.

There are passives which says “this hero is resist status ailments that does posion damage” (or something like that)
These heroes can not receive the ailments itself.

Before the current Beta I would have said that it is doesn’t matter, but in the current Beta we have received a Kalevala hero, which does more damage if the target has got a status ailment.


Which talent path did you go?

I have no idea how but I got him with as little as 14 pulls.

He is the ultimate missing link to my Overlord Team; was using Xnolphod + Ludwig + Alfrike but didn’t really have any good hero to place next to Ludwig except Alfrike. Now this guy will enjoy the spot. Also planning to tank with him after I limit break him; those 4 instances of immunity to damage is SICK. Especially in VF environment. Probably even more broken than Alfrike - we’ll see.


I pulled him on my alt account. He looks great. Really happy to get him at least on alt.

There’s also the case with that purple knight (rayne?) , that spreads her poison from the target . If it resists damage not the status , the poison will still spread thru gargoyles , not entirely nullifying half her special if I’m right?

Yes, I think the Aiment will spread to the Gargolyes too, and spread to their neightbor, but the damage will not be received by them.

Thanks, guys, probably you’re right! I’ve got limited options, just as I mentioned. I am more than happy to
be able to pull and upload this short video. He’ll definitely play a big role in my roster and upcoming tests are on the way. It was just such a pleasant feeling to see those puny 2000 - 2200 amounts of dmg. And ! he didn’t even have 1 hp! :wink:
