So while I got lucky in Morlovia, lately my luck has been pretty . Like, last time I pulled a new hero in Covenant was when Ferrus was first featured several months back. But this time, with Gazelle featured - my most wanted 5* of all time?! I was gonna throw all I could to get her, including saving up for a 30.
Although, to be fair, I have a tendency of only ever pulling a Monster Hunter in these portals - despite always coveting some other featured hero (usually a ninja). Literally, every featured hero I’ve ever pulled was one except for a single dupe Frida, in one of the first Covenants ever. So I knew my odds were already slim, but add that trend on top? Near impossible. Esp with my max pulls I’d be willing to throw at this being 115.
Soo… The Featured
I already had Archie prior… only one of the featured I had previously (and I’ve got two from Springvale), so obvi the worst featured for me to pull.
Then, as I said already, Gazelle has been my most wanted hero for nearly half a decade.
Cardinal was my #2 want, as the only Musketeers I have are Porthos and Queen Anne… The two worst. Plus, fire is one of my worst elements, while ice being one of my best.
Third want of the featured: Quinn, as he’d be my first 5* elemental.
Ghealach I’m not all that excited about, but of the two monster hunters, he’s imo the better of the featured.
Then Tenebrae, with the amazing art, but pretty mediocre SS… the only new one of these I’d be disappointed to pull.
So within my first 59 pulls:
lol ofc. Not the worst result, but def not the best… I’ve got too many ice heroes to prioritize this dude, less I’m underestimating something bout him. My other options are Bubbles, Ceto, Thalassa, Himeros, Thanatos, C. Snow White, C. Athena, C. Finley, Tremor, Azurite, C. Aino and Porthos, so it’s just a whole mess of blues for me atm (while literally every other element I have maybe one, two options max lol)
But then, on pull #78
(I did 87 pulls total btw)
…while I was already expecting to have to say goodbye for the second time, my first coin pull of my last chunk before expecting to use my gems for a 30…
I literally shed tears of joy in this moment. No other hero have I coveted this much, nor for this amount of time, more than Gazelle. A hero that truly has the capacity to change my gameplay. I’m so thrilled, that whatever gripes I’ve had with the game lately were washed away in this moment. Now I gotta join an alliance and get back into the swing of things, cuz I’ve got me a new hero I’m excited about, and gotta level
*Can die [metaphorically, in the context of this game] happy now
