:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Underwild Rare Hero?

It’s important to remember that Season 4 Underwild Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 4 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 41% chance of summoning Helo.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 65 times out of 100, you’ll get Helo by pull 20
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Helo by pull 57
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Helo by pull 87

Putting that in Perspective

  • 35 out of every 100 people won’t get Helo by the 20th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 20 times, 350,000 of those players wouldn’t get Helo

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Helo by the 57th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 57 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Helo

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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:

Happy for a blue 3* healer, since %$#@& Christmas summons wouldn’t give me Frosty who kicked my butt in this week’s tourney btw :angry: but I got 3 Carols :roll_eyes: :upside_down_face: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Considering there is a grand total of one 3* cleanser so far (C-Tyrum), this guy is very welcome addition in my roster.

I zoomed in on this guy and realized he is a mouse with a fish on his head…

I thought the characters for S4 were lifted from fiction. If this is a pop culture reference, I don’t get it… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

His people, the Eloi, are from H.G. Wells’s The Time Machine, but I don’t get the fish.

Ok I don’t think I ever read the Time Machine but google did not turn up any notion of Eloi being mouse people or a character named Helo…

From a fan site “The Eloi are a happy people, who speak a simple language and are mainly interested in playfulness. They often play with flowers and other amusing items. Physically, they are shorter than humans, have blond hair, smooth skin, and are weaker than modern humans.”

I should imagine, then, that a fish on the head would be the height of amusement to such folk. I’ve no idea about the name; I don’t think they used names as such, although the Time Traveller may have named the girl he got friendly with. I could well be mixing up the story with one or another movie though - it’s been a while. And no, they wouldn’t have been mice. But then the Morlok wouldn’t have had extra arms either, if both were descended from humans. This isn’t supposed to be a copy of the story though, just a tribute to it, so we can expect a few liberties.

I’ve seen only that movie where humans destroyed the Moon by trying to dig under its surface with explosives and there Eloi were not mouse people either. Nor Morlocks had 4 arms. Though given the plot I am not sure that is the best reference.

With Helo out, is Frosty now obsolete? A cleanse seems more broadly useful than Frosty’s minions.

Frosty heals for more. I suspect it’s going to be situational.

Both look to heal 32%

Oops. I must have his non macmxed heal stuck in my head.

Stats aren’t much different… I still think it’s a bit situational, but agree that Helo has the general advantage.

Frosty would be better:

  1. if there’s not many ailments on enemy team
  2. Paired with Rudolph (maybe)
  3. Against Vollermark (but Kvasir also works)

Frosty, despite loosing his healing, will also have some benefits in Bloody Battles also as the minions still provide Pseudo healing,.

Frosty is also a Rogue, so is valuable in Trials and that dodge is useful in Bloody Battles

Just pulled Helo with the Day 3 offer, and I’m not sure yet who I’d use in Rare Challenge Events. Frosty’s minions help clear mobs, but takes up time on the clock.

I am thankful for a cleanser healer, but I would be more thankful if it was either Holy or Dark healer…
Frosty = ice/blue
Belith = green/nature
Hawkmoon = fire/red

A cleanser healer would fit with holy and dark heros aka Vivian and Rigard
