Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic 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 25.1% chance of summoning Gretel.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Gretel by pull 24 (6,400 gems)
  • 94 times out of 100, you’ll get Gretel by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Gretel by pull 160 (41,600 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 50 out of every 100 people won’t get Gretel by the 24th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four: times, 500,000 of those players wouldn’t get Gretel

  • 6 out of every 100 people won’t get Gretel by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::zero::zero: times, 60,000 of those players wouldn’t get Gretel

  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Gretel by the 160th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::six::zero: times, 10,000 of those players wouldn’t get Gretel

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:

@zephyr1 small error in the OP table here (has the ranger emblem symbol)

I’ll fix that, but it’s from Jeeves, so I’ll let Lumi know.

I just got her. Compared her to Mist. When I finished the comparison I left her crying in a corner.

It all depends on your roster, but if you compare her to other 4’s she is great. Better mana control then Chao, Li Xiu, or Little John IMO. Aside from Guardian Jackal I believe she has the highest attack value of any yellow 4* too. Her and Jackal are the saving grace in the 4* yellow class. Her barbarian class gives her wound damage as well when emblemed.

While Hansel is better I still bring Gretel with me on S3 hard and in raids against 5*’s if the color combos make sense. She probably wouldn’t compete in past low diamond though.
