Or: How many summons are needed to get an old HotM?
Below Maths is current as of September 2020.
Subject to change as additional heroes are added to the Portal.

It’s important to remember that the Tavern of Legends Portal has the lowest odds for a specific hero of ANY portal… No amount of summoning will guarantee a Featured Hero.

You have a 0.25% chance of summoning a specific Featured Past HotM from the Tavern of Legends Portal (0.0125% for a specific Non-Featured).

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 2.47% chance of summoning a particular Featured Past HotM (0.12% chance for a specific Non-Featured & 12.27% chance for ANY Past HotM).

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

Some useful insights:

(Each 30x Summons costs 8,000 gems or ~$79.99 USD).

# of Summons ~ USD Cost
pre-tax
Odds for Specific Featured Past HotM Odds for Non-Featured Past HotM
10 $26.00 2.47% 0.13%
30 $74.99 7.23% 0.03%
100 $250.98 22.14% 1.24%
500 $1,251.88 71.39% 6.06%
1,500 $3,749.63 97.66% 17.10%
5,000 $12,500.75 99.9996% 46.48%
10,000 $24,998.50 99.9999999986% 71.35%

Putting that in Perspective

If 100 people were to complete 100x summons, spending ~$250 USD:

  • 27 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 78 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 99 WON’T get a specific Non-Featured Past HotM

If 100 people were to conduct 1500x summons, spending ~$3,750 USD:

  • 1 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 23 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 83 WON’T geta a specific Non-Featured Past HotM

If 1 Million players each completed 10,000 summons, spending ~$25,000 USD:

  • 1 WON’T get ANY Past HotM
  • 1 WON’T get a specific Featured Past HotM
  • 286,500 WON’T geta a specific Non-Featured Past 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:

Sorry for reviving a very old thread, but…Which emblem path would you take for Miki’s 8th node?

I went right:

  1. it gives more attack bonus than the static node on the left
  2. it has the defence node which is the main thing for him as a support hero (wanting primarily to be alive as long as possible).

That was my thinking as well! Thx @Guvnor!

Emblems? On Miki? :confused:

Titans and Rush Wars/ Tournaments.

He is soooo OP in rush attack lol

I rarely use him in wars, probably missing a trick there. And most of my (tiny) alliance seem to be allergic to any titans over 6*. But Miki still does well on the mid-range mythic titans, end challenge bosses and ninja tower. He’s ludicrously sturdy. That said, if I do get some spare emblems (ha!) defence is the path that makes sense. So many other heroes can’t function without 'em.

He comes in handy for wars.

Not so much for the tile damage boost, because that only applies when the enemies have more health than you, but mostly for his ability to silence up to 3 opponents at once. Very useful tool to have at your disposal.

If he wasn’t slow mana, he’d probably be considered ridiculously OP.

I love Miki! I use him in wars, tournaments, events, challenges, but primarily against titans! I have Tarlak and Guardian Gazelle. Miki gets the most use against titans. I was holding back on putting emblems on him, but with the higher titans and availability of emblems, it’s became time.

I would like to ask something about Miki in a BLUE stack with more than one blue heroes.

How the program decides if the “enemy has more health” part is true or false?

Is it Miki’s actual health value or the game picks up a random hero of the element of the damage-dealing tile?

Sorry for the Gibberish- Klingon accent but I cannot word this any better…

You have say 5 blue heroes.
Enemy has 800hp
3 of your heroes have 500hp
2 have 1000 Hp

So now 3 of your heroes will get the buff, and 2 not.
The total damage is a addition of the single stone damages done. (simplified)
If you look for damage calculation you will find extremely detailed information on how the damage is actually counted.

Tjis makes sence…

Thank you very much!

I tought that the game picks a random blue hero for every tile and checks if the condition is met…

Edit: like with the talent perks…
