This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Kara.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Kara and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Kara worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Kara on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Kara ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Kara as an opponent?

  • Would you give Kara Paladin Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Kara’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Kara and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Kara, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Kara when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Kara, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Kara (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Kara), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of HOTM.

: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.

My luck stopped at Zagrog, missed Silvaria despite doing ~90 pulls this month. Hope 100 pulls in May will bring Kara to papa

I’ve been stingy on pull this month due to this HOTM. Happy with Viscaro and Iris though!

I have not received any HoTMs since Russell (actually I have received two of them).
I hope I will get this one.

I’m happy that Summer event is on May so she is accesible with EHT’s aswell, previously I was planning to burn my EHT’s for a S1 portal at the end of May if I didn’t get her from any other pulls, but now I can use them for Summer pulls :smiley: That will still be my very last straw getting her, I really could use a holy hero and what’s best, a taunter that is! I did get BK from last Challenge Event though, so can’t say anymore that she would be the 1st taunter in my roster if I happened to get her.
