*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 Liu Bei when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Liu Bei, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Liu Bei (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Liu Bei), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

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

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Liu Bei.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Liu Bei by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Liu Bei by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Liu Bei by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Liu Bei by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Liu Bei by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Liu Bei

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Liu Bei by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Liu Bei

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?

Why is liu bei’s portal image so small lol

counterattack is just weak at 50% and minions health is low… maybe if the counterattack is 100% he will be okay at average speed

Well he does 340% to three, which by itself makes him one of the hardest-hitting hit-3 heroes in the game. Plus the small heal from the minions (a minion is essentially a small health boost) and counter-attack… he’s an excellent hero even with just 50% counter-attack.


He does lose out to quenell eventually and the counterattack minions are just a bonus

IF he were fast but he’s not

His minions have low HP. Pulled him today, will level and see how good he is :blush:


Last portal gave me Guan Yu and this one gave me Liu Bei. The game is trolling me with green heroes but no red ones. Guess I will give Liu Bei the tonics just because I have 3000 druid emblems and he looks promissing on a green stack.


Congrats on pulling LB !

I called them Slimy minions in my Wo3K hero descriptions on my channel !


Guan Yu + Liu Bei at the same speed will do approximately 730% damage to 3 opponents. And Liu Bei’s a druid so only needs a level 11 mana troop with the +4% mana node to fire in 9


I think Liu Bei is good, but just not on par with most of the new heroes coming out. I think a small buff to either 1.) how much damage he hits for, 2.) how strong his minions are, or 3.) How much he counter attacks for. As is, he doesnt hit very hard for an average speed hero, his minions only have 9hp, which seems way to low, and 50% counter attack just doesnt do enough.


I like Liu Bei alot, I was going to LB Guan Yu, but decided to wait until Liu Bei is ascended. I run Guan Yu, ArielC, Liu Bei, Diao Chan, Quenell

I’m also deciding on ascending between Khonshu and Lu Bu … Woudl be nice to have 4 members of W3K heroes on one team getting that small mana boost.

What is the best emblem path for him? Guessing attack / health (health for minion life?)

Yes, attack and health because of the minion.

Other topic:

The OP is now adjusted with the June balance changes.

What do you guys think of him now after the balance and thus his buff?

I fought a team with a W defense that had Mother North - Zhuge Liang - ??? - Liu Bei - Pengi and it was a giant PITA to kill. Both Zhuge and Liu were over 1250 defense (full shield path, I assume). It took me three attempts to kill them… their defense and health were ridiculous and the minions are a huge PITA.

I pulled for him today but ofcourse nadda…
Maybe he or cao cao will come someday hopefully I’m not too old to play with him…lol …good luck in future pulls…:slight_smile:


Just pulled this Fool. Whats the current verdict?

Just limit broke El Naddaha, and am currently leveling Fogg, have the tonics for Liu as well.
