:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:

Or: How many summons are needed to get a HOTM?

Special thanks to @Garanwyn for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.

It’s important to remember that HOTM have very low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a HOTM.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 12.3% chance of summoning the HOTM.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 73 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 229
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 352

Putting that in Perspective

  • 27 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 270,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 229th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 229 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

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:

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

Liking the Hero but not the art ;(. I mean, as a rare would be ok but for a legendary… Is he a legendary surfer, legendary addict or a legendary brawler? Not in to It.

Is it just me, or does Malosi look like Tarlak on drugs? :joy:

Seems like he’s designed to counter Kunchen given his speed and special.

Whomever described him as “Tarlak on drugs” got it right!

What’s with this art? It looks like a rejected Laggon Family design (for good reason) :joy:

Not just you, @Rigs thought that way back in January when Malosi hit Beta:

If I use Malosi against purple titan it is blocking the the poison and by the rare titan the critical of titan?

I think the artwork is awesome, the artist captured the action very well. He looks like a skilled but reckless UFC fighter. Very fitting with his stats/specials.

First pull, first Malosi :astonished:

I would love to pull him, my yellows are very weak combination and he may fit very well. Very fast specials are almost always very valued, especially if it comes with suppressing secondary effects of all those murderous kunchens, tellurias etc.

Unfortunately, I am cursed and can’t pull any yellows at all, not even HotMs. I only keep pulling Guardian Owls. I’ve been pulling at least 2 copies of each ever since Grimble (0 Neiths). It might be about time where my luck runs off. We’ll see on the Wonderlands.

Looks like he’s about to bite his tongue off. Someone get him a pacifier.

Malosi, Great hero, in my view it is too exaggerated the speed mana super fast, kunken nn has more chances with him and will surely be taken away by many as tank, adding all I would have seen him more with medium/fast mana because so is too deranged compared to other heroes and who will be lucky enough to catch it will be in my view too advantageous. My personal considerations, congratulations to the e&p staff for all the work they are doing for these magnificent heroes.

This hero is so ugly… one of the worst artworks ever

15 Likes

So the art is bad because you think the hero is ugly? I think it’s one of the better artworks, most of them are pretty static and dull, but this one looks dynamic and more unique.

Its terrible! Looks like a 3* artwork

You state your opinion as a fact. But it’s just that: your opinion.

So now the artwork of all 3* are ugly as well?
