Hero Academy level 8 - Results & Reporting

In order to keep thread easy to read please share you results for HA8


I plan to start with HA8, had about 4 saved trainings and got gretel to start

Unfortunately gretel is a dupe, could possibly level it later, not sure. Have a bunch of summons back loaded but likely I will report weekly

Currently 1/4 on special event heroes

Currently missing the following event heroes:

Lancelot, Merlin, peters, boomer, Hansel & Cheshire Cat

1 Gretel Event hero! :zap:
2 Cadmon S1
3 Li Xiu S1
4 Li Xiu S1


18x Classic 4*
2x Academy 4*

My HA10 5* retraining is finally ready ( insane build times, and research times, for Stronghold 21+ )

Since running HA08 Epic, and HA10 5* retraining, at the same time is so resource intensive ( and approximately 90% of HA10 is wasted resources on this account ) I am collecting both HA08 Epic, and HA10, at the same time ( 7x to 8x days )




Are we quitting if we do not like the results?

Nah, just have fun, let others share their good new and celebrate with them

Posted this in the wrong HA thread. Here’s my first pull from the revamped HA8:



4 trainings claimed so far, all S1s, what did i really expect?

3 trainings collected so far

  1. Peters - Dupe - kept
  2. Rigard - #5 - Ate
  3. Little John - not kept any of previously - ate

Edited to add

Heroes wanted: Hansel, Gretel, Sabina, Captain of Diamonds

Event hero status: Have both Guardians, Peters ( now x2), Merlin and Lancelot maxed. Have no need for Boomer, have fed him away before and wouldn’t keep even if did receive.


I started HA8 late, so just one: Gormek… ate him.

Wanted: Guardian falcon / Hansel / Gretel. Maybe Peters
Have: Guardian jackal / Merlin / Lancelot / Boomer. Boomer still sits at 1/1 for the odd change he gets another buff and becomes actually usefull.
Don’t have, don’t really want (but wouldn’t mind having): Chesire cat and Cap’o diamonds.

I would also really like if they would add the costumes to HA8 and HA5, so I can complete my set. still need a few (Sabina, Colen & Cyprian)


Yeah, that would be good.

I will report here only tomorrow, as I have started only on Sunday when my HA10 is ended.


First 4 out.

  1. Cyprian
  2. Scarlet
  3. Lancelot (dupe)
  4. Gormek

My needed list for collection: Boomer, Cheshire Cat, Gretel, Jackal


What are the odds on non s1 4* heros in ha8? Im currently running 10 and 6 for troops but there are quite a few event 4s id like especially jackal and falcon

My understanding is that all the 4* in HA8 are equally likely.

Yeah but what are the odds of getting a non s1 like in ha10 its 5% odds for a costume or non s1 so is it 5% for a non s1 4* in ha8? Or are you saying it’s just as likely to get a non s1 as an s1 4*? I have a hard time thinking sg is that generous lol

GryphonKnight shared the expected odds a few posts up. SG didn’t mention anything so I believe it’s equal odds for each of the 32 heroes.
So it’s 10/32 for an Event 4% or 1/32 for any specific hero


My first pull from HA8 is

Guardian Falcon (who is a dupe, but I might keep it)


I might start HA8, cause I will stop HA10 for a while (I always run rare troops), because I need food for other stuff and this is cheaper, but before that I’ll run uncommon troops until every color will have 3 mana troops at level 11 (I need 3rd green/purple and 2nd/3rd yellow to lvl 11). After that I’ll run HA8 and I’ll hope for 4 missing event 4*, pretty much for collection purpose - Captain of Diamonds, Cheshire Cat, Peters and Boomer. They all have their uses except crappy Boomer though. Also 2nd G. Jackal and 2nd Sabina (I have her costume, but never kept her dupe for some reason, dupe can be useful, just like with other 4* healers).


Started researching 8 when I first read about the addition of new Heroes. Thanks to that I was able to collect 4 trainings which netted me my first event 4* Merlin.

Looks like i will keep this running for a while till my wishlist is complete.

Wishlist: Guardian Falcon, Guardian Jackal, Cheshire Cat, Gretel and Hansel.


Got the worst possible hero (counting S1 and event imo) but cool! It works! I have one at 1/1 already so LB C. Sabina ate him. :skull_and_crossbones::bone:

Note that my last pull was Gretel. 2 non S1 in sequence but also a dupe. My main aim was Hansel but I’ve just pulled him in Festival portal :balloon::raised_hands:t2:, so now the 1st spot belongs to Chesire Cat. :heart_eyes_cat:
