: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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

If I get her… Ok… But as presently constituted, she is ok… Just ok. Her special actually fights against her passive… But i get it… Though i hate that costume sabina is better as a debuff/buff preventer.

This hero isnt great compared to the OP green heroes that have been released recently, and I love how it is pretty good counter to Krampus, who was nerfed prior to releasing C-BK who is much better, and this HOTM is not an ideal counter to BK due to being green. More nonsense from SG.

Seems like a pretty good hitter for a Hotm? Can´t think of a better hit-3 Hotm anyway, definitely not in green. Plus some nice extras, so I am up for it, don´t have Quenell/Naddaha etc. She´d be top of my leveling queue for green 5 stars for sure, but I have to admit competition isn´t especially tough there…

Iris? 325% + minor to nearby + higher stats + increased dmg to fire + dispel-over-time.
for me she is at least comparable if not better. At least not limited to counter taunters, deals just as well with riposte.

Minor nearby as you said. I was talking about a stronger hit-3. Damage wise I´d say there is a lot more damage here than with Iris, but I do agree Iris extras are probably better.
Also Zagrog has a bigger hit (well and he´s only average), but it´s also minor nearby.
Now that I think of it how many other fast hit-3 Hotm are there at all?

You’re right, and even if we can disagree if she is #1 or #2, she is a really good HOTM.
And will make a good pair with Silvaria.

3 Likes

I thought almost the same thing. Her and Khufu will be good friends if I pull her. so far that taunt thing is the biggest hindrance I have when using him

Also, a nice pairing with Quenell. Imagine a 520% Quenell slamming down on an enemy with -34% damage from special skills. Maybe add a bit of Franz and/or Silvaria into the mix.

Devana, Clarissa, Gravemaker.

Devana is avg and hits much weaker, just like Elradir.
Fast Hit-3 HOTMs are:
Clarissa,
Gravemaker,
Drake Fong,
Evelyn,
Margaret,
Reuben,
Thoth-Amun
if counting “minor to nearby” we can add:
Musashi
Iris

Hear me out: if Legends 2022 is going to get the same bonus as the other HotM families next year (2+ heroes = link applies to all colors), then the synergy with Tahir (or another given 2022 HotM) is going to be massive. Grace alone will counter taunts (that are wildly prevalent) and ensure your entire team is immune to fiends (also wildly prevalent).

This one’s it.

Everyone needs grace in their world!
Good luck in the portals …
may they show you a Grace :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Zagrog also has a minor nearby hit

Anyways this hero can play well with what I have. silvaria will defense debuff 3, c. Francine hits 3 and debuffs ice, and Grace can hit 3… Really would make garjammal out of place on primary green team.

I think her special skill is Malison (archaic word for curse) and not Mailson (no definition I could find). The prelim card I have seen has the former. FYI.

Congrats! Now you can have mono Grace team. :grin:
Could you please share her full artwork here? (so that everybody could see how ugly she is?)

The picture is from a teammember who did a 30-pull. He only got 5 HotM and no other 5* heroes. His goal was Sekhmet. Eventually he got her. I didn’t ask after how many pulls.
