Or: How many summons are needed to get a Seasonal Event Epic Hero?

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

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 25% chance of summoning a particular Seasonal Epic Hero.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 58 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 30
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 104
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by pull 160

Putting that in Perspective

  • 42 out of every 100 people won’t get a specific Seasonal Epic Hero by the 30th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 30 times, 420,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero by the 104th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 104 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Epic Hero

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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:

No discussion at all? I guess poor Jabbar is not liked :disappointed_relieved:

Anyways, I pulled a bunch of Gafars and Jabbars yesterday. I already had two maxed Gafars so I did not keep any new ones. Jabbar I am actually keeping one copy. First of all, for collection purposes. Secondly, I see some potentials in him for field aid wars and rush attack tournaments. Since I have 40+ trap tools, I might as well just max one.


He is somewhat underwhelming as a 4* DoA hero :stuck_out_tongue: Akin to Boomer really :confused:

I agree that Jabbar is not amazing. But I personally think he has more uses than Boomer. I fed away my Boomer a long time ago but am keeping and maxing my Jabbar.

Hopefully more players can join this conversation and share this thoughts on Jabbar.

I’ve got one sitting at 1-1 since last year’s Sand Empire. I guess that’s because there’s another hero for each possible use case who’s just a little better at one thing or another. But alas, I’m a collector, so I’ll keep him and probably max him one day in the future when I’ve run out of other heroes to work on (almost been at that point before they released Valhalla…). I’m not doing any pulls this Same Empire.

I’d prefer Gafar, my search for a dark sniper better than Balthazar continues… But I’m happy for having Jabbar, got him from a token in my first ever Sand pull.

Ohh man, I got both of these guys lol.
Hoarding both, actually I am maxing (almost done) Jabbar. Just so I havean extra Dark to use/stack with


I just pulled Jabbar today; his attack stat is weak, but it looks like he could be a pretty solid tank, especially in niche circumstances like a 4* No-Yellow tournament. In that situation, he might be more punishing than putting my Costume Rigard in the tank position. If Rigard fires, the opponent can just keep throwing tiles into him to charge their heroes with little further consequence, but at least if Jabbar fires, he does a small amount of damage and applies the healing debuff to a few opponents.

So I’ll probably level him up. I wish the cleanse was for more than just himself, though.

Good gaming!


I’m now done pulling from Sand Empire. I got all of them except Rana and Yunan. Shocker! Lol :grin:


Pulled Jabbar last year. I only just got around to maxing him now… after maxing 141 other heroes and 3-70’ing 20 other 5*s. Never actually used him for anything. The only Heroes lower in my leveling queue are Obakan, Quintus, and Justice.

I would like to have this guy, or at least wouldn’t be bummed if I got him. I can see how he can be “outgrown” as you level up and transition to more 5* and really key 4*.

Looking at him though his HP and D are very solid for a 4*. There also isn’t a great deal of competition for monk class at the 4* level. If he were to be emblemed, especially on primarily and HP and D path he would service as a phenomenal tank probably into the platinum and diamond transition. Especially with some fast, punishing flanks. All the enemy will want to do is heal and they need to either wait to heal or take a dramatic cut in it. Both scenarios are deadly. His monk resist bolsters his survivability.

This can also apply to slow mob fights that’ll be a slugfest or the late war rounds, especially with field aid, where his combined damage taking ability and enemy health reduction could be huge. They just won’t be able to heal themselves or kill him.

If you view him as a support hero to bolster teammates by taking hits and reducing enemy healing benefits he really seems pretty solid for that when playing with mostly 4’s. Again, past that he is likely relegated to war depth, class trials, or the “just cause” tinkering while farming. Probably only in offensive raids, even mono, if you’re cup dropping when you’re to the mostly 5* point.

I would take him over non costumed Kashhrek or Boril, who are both notoriously great platinum tanks.

Good luck out there!


Just pulled Jabbar a few hours ago!

I have C.Rigx2, c.Sabina, c.Tibs, Proteus, and Merlin as a 4 star purple sniper.

Talking only about 4 star environment how is he doing now?

Apart of being a piece of a collection is he better than a second Tib+cb for instance?

Edit: can somebody show me a +20 Jabbar?

I doubt anyone will show a +20 Jabbar. I have him, but haven’t used him much as I would normally lean towards Rigard, Proteus, Domitia when I stack purple.
With the defense formations (double and double reverse), he may be more useful as he will inflict status and damage effects to all. Could be useful if fired before a healer fires. Just a thought.

I used him back during field aid wars. But he sits on the bench without emblems now. I have a duplicate costume Tibs I use more often. I consider him one of the worst heroes in the game.

I am like … Do I start with Gafar or Jabbar…but I have Cheshire cat and Cyprian…most likely will do Cyprian just first because I like Boril and this way will have different colour guy :grinning:
