|Or: Where can I get this Hero From?|
Past HotM are available from a number of locations depending on their age.
As Kingston has been released for between 12 & 24 months, he can be summoned from both the Atlantis Portal (September 2020 & September 2021) and in the Tavern of Legends Portal.
He can also be “Trained” using the Hero Academy Level 10.
Old HotM’s are featured in the Atlantis Portal a total of two times. Once in the month proceeding their Anniversary Month of initial Release (11 months after release) and again on the next Anniversary Month (23 months after release).
Tavern of Legends
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are added to the summons pool in the Tavern of Legends Portal.
Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are also added as a possible outcome of Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining.

|Or: How many summons are needed to get an old HotM?|
|Below Maths is current as of July 2020.
Subject to change as additional heroes are added to the Portal.
It’s important to remember that the Tavern of Legends Portal has the lowest odds for a specific hero of ANY portal… No amount of summoning will guarantee a Featured Hero.
You have a 0.05% chance of summoning a specific Past HotM from the Tavern of Legends Portal.
On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 0.499% chance of summoning a particular Past HotM (12.27% chance for ANY Past HotM).
But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.
Some useful insights:
(Each 30x Summons costs 8,000 gems or ~$79.99 USD).

Another good summary graphic by @Dorkus:
Putting that in Perspective
96 out of every 100 people will spend ~$266.63 USD and WON’T get a specific Past HotM by the 100th pull
If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 960,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Featured Hero
5 out of every 100 people who will spend ~$24,554.26 USD and WON’T get the specific Featured Hero by the 5,990th pull
If 1 Million players each summoned 5,990 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Featured Hero
More Insights & Reading
I highly recommend reading these two threads for more information and context on summoning odds:
- How much should I spend?- HotM cost, and odds, analysis
- What exactly is a Gacha? (Read before posting things about “unfair pulls”)
- [WARNING] A Summons Experience - Chasing Guardian Panther - A Warning for Chasing Heroes
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.
