:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Underwild Epic Hero?

It’s important to remember that Season 4 Underwild Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 4 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 13.7% chance of summoning Mack.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 36 times out of 100, you’ll get Mack by pull 30
  • 59 times out of 100, you’ll get Mack by pull 60
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Mack by pull 203
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Mack by pull 314

Putting that in Perspective

  • 64 out of every 100 people won’t get Mack by the 30th pull.

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 30 times, 640,000 of those players wouldn’t get Mack.

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Mack by the 203rd pull.

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 203 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Mack.

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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 got Mack today and I particularly like his artwork.

Unfortunately, I have so many fighters that he’ll struggle to get emblems and this makes him unable to fulfill his tank role.

It’s a real shame that, like Shadereave, interesting defensive characters just stay on the bench because they are too niche to get emblems.


Of course I get 2 of this guy, he will be benched for a long time.

I thought the beta information stated that he counterattacks for 135%. Why is it adjusted back to 125%?

I’ll be putting him next to Brynhild during 4* buff booster tournaments. Fire her first, then him, five undispellable buffs for four turns.

This guy is going to be a real pain during certain tournaments.

Love his finger point… ayyyyye!


Probably a much better counterattacking 4 star than cyprian and boril.
Will surely level him up for the fun of it.

For those who wonder about his passive “buff ability”

  • 1st time he fires: riposte and attack 5 rounds
  • 2nd time he fires: riposte for 5 and attack for 4 rounds

So, like it should be: the order of the specials decide which one gets the +1 turn


Didn’t notice his passive ability, now I’m definitely leveling him in the future :+1:t3:

My card says only 90% counterattack.

Your card is only at 1/8 special skill.
