Please include some comments about what you think of Krampus when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Krampus, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Krampus (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Krampus), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Seasonal Event Heroes.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Seasonal Event Legendary 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 4.9% chance of summoning a particular Seasonal Legendary Hero.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 39 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 598
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 919

Putting that in Perspective

  • 61 out of every 100 people won’t get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 610,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 598th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 598 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary 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:

I just noticed the stat buff from the original version to the release version of 852 def and 1468 hp. That’s higher def & hp than Telluria, Heimdall and BK. Seems like SG really is trying to shift to meta away from Telluria. Probably won’t be enough to shift the meta to blue tanks tho unless the next blue hotm is also a good tank.

Haiku dedicated to Krampus:

Ol’ Krampus

   Look how he grimace
Like a cramp in the p3n1s
    Utmost Ugliness

it wont shift the meta but its moves like this hero that will eventually open it up.
Hes going to be a good to great tank, and I really like him. Probably smart they made the taunt dispellable and the defense buff undispellable.
I really like him and now Blue should have a very good tank. I’m totally down with diversifying the hero ecosystem.


True. The problem with Krampus as tank is he doesn’t harm an attacker which is huge. That said however, he is the best thing going for blue tanks maybe aside from Rumple who will be rarer.


I’m really hoping I get him. Have been keeping scopes so have enough saved up to ascend if I do.

Have not received any ehts yet since end of Halloween event though so I am going to need to get very lucky. Will be keeping all gems from now till last day of event then do as many pulls as I can.


Scopes ready.
My MN needs a mate for the defense.

Apologies in advance if this question has already been posted before elsewhere in the forum.
Need to clarify something:

  • If Karmpus’ undispellable Def up is active and a normal Def down is then casted on him, what will his Def buff/debuff status be?
1 Like

undispellable means un-overwriteable too, so he’ll keep his def buff in that scenario


So, I would assume the word “RESIST” will pop up when a normal Def down is casted on him… :thinking:


yes something like that

Good luck @Kilted :+1:

I hear Krampus comes with killer gingerbread cookies :man_shrugging:



Nothing happens (no text or anything). :slight_smile: just keeps the existing debuff.

Do we know where his defense buff caps? These scalable buffs/ailments always have a ceiling.

I think it was @DaveCozy that checked it in the beta thread. Memory not working currently but I want to say it was either 74 or 94?


I want him, but I also want MN and Santa with him.

Rush Attack tournament/war def:

MN - Santa - Alfrike - Krampus - G.Owl

Maybe you could even switch around Krampus and Alfrike. 3 heroes summoning minions with 20% hp and 20% attack at vfast.

Thicc. Solid. Tight.


I would love Krampus but I have no interest in MN or Santa. I’ll probably just use a few tokens since I want Frosty for tournaments


Any tests in beta with QoH/Black Knight?

Wondering how they do when they are not in sync —

Krampus is too strong for me. Especially if the tank is hero in defense, he will be stronger, but will Telluria, Kadilen ©, Frigg be removed from all defenses? I don’t think so. Because Krampus is not a bonus, most players have no chance of pulling, and the drop rate is very low. For now, the best blue tank is the Aegir, but it is not forcing that hero as a tank anymore. So defense tanks do not change :roll_eyes:
