*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 Lughaidh when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Lughaidh, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Lughaidh (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Lughaidh), 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 Lughaidh.

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

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Lughaidh 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 Lughaidh

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Lughaidh 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 Lughaidh

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:

He is slow, he gives you a chance to ghost tiles and his buffs can be dispelled.

His tank stats aren’t different from Telluria but at least with her she effects the enemy team. He really does nothing in comparison.


I read the card but i’m not in with this hero. Are those 180hp an HP Boost? Or he just heals over time like C.Melendor.

This 180 HP boost is applied in every turn, and of course it can be increased with troops + special skill buffs / passives.

I don’t think his buffs can be dispelled because it is bound together with his ghost form. But he is just too slow and unreliable as the team’s only healer. However on rush he is absolutely a beast


It’s a shame, his artwork is really good.


Ameonna + Prof. Lidenbrock = Lughaidh :rofl:


I hope anyone with this hero can tell us if his buffs are bound together with his ghost form so it can’t be dispelled. Because I don’t believe they would release him in such a underpowered form with dispellable buffs. But at least he boosts health and not regenerate health. If he can only regenerate health, he is absolute trash

This is the first time that I do not know which option to choose and tick for the usefulness of a hero. Is it a good sign ?? :smile:

Card says “while in ghost form”, so I understand that can’t be cleansable. But someone owning the card should confirm.

The hero remains me the ghosts from LOTR the return of the king


If the defense buff and heal can be dispelled, he will just be a tile dump tank and attackers can stack the strong color against the flanks. But it is probably undispellable otherwise, it is a really bad skill.

This hero is a joke. Even a season 1 hero like Vivica who gives +63% defense, instant 44% heal + cleanse is better.


Could someone explain what is the purpose of this hero and how to use it?

The team get defense and healing, that part I get.
But the ghost form I don’t get. What is the point?

Happy gaming


To make the abiliy to pair with the artwork. Like Ameona, Stonecleave. As they are Ghost then lets do they go in Ghost form

Just give him taunt and everyone will want a piece of him, imagine a ghost hero with taunt. But then again he’ll still be too slow
Ghost mechanics are just poorly designed imo. I believe it needs some sort of rework.


yeah, they need “tidying up”

sorry i couldn’t resist :laughing:


I was lucky enough to get it today.
The ability is not bannable. Displayed directly in the text.


His ability is so so but damn, one of the best artwork in the game
