:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Seasonal Event Legendary Hero?

It’s important to remember that Seasonal Event Heroes have extremely low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Seasonal Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 4.9% chance of summoning a particular Seasonal Legendary Hero.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 39 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 598
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by pull 919

Putting that in Perspective

  • 61 out of every 100 people won’t get a specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 610,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero by the 598th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 598 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the specific Seasonal Legendary Hero

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:

No one has posted in here but I have a question about who to level next. Mother North 1.1 or zeline, Kingston, heimdal, zocc, kadilen, Elkanen and tarlak.
I have Evelyn, frigg, lianna, lady of the lake and telly maxed. Francine and Gregorion at 3/70.

Tarlak for titans and the tile damage (I’m levelling him although MN is next for ascension) that’s what I would do.

You have plenty of good opportunities just think about what’s more important for you, more survivability, more damage, more sniping, more synergy with Evelyn… Zeline is very interesting in defense. Kadilen is not impressive enough without her costume to compete with the others. Heimdall is not an emergency since you have Telly, same for Kingston (you have Lianna).

I highly recommend MN. I have Albi fully maxed at 20 nodes. I’m never out of a fight as long as he is alive. MN is the same way.
LotL is a very good healer, but she is more suited for events to control boss mana. Unfortunately she’s not as strong defense/health wise to be dependable in PvP situations (I have LotL at 19 nodes)
MN can turn what looks like a sure loss into an runaway win.


I’m so happy for finally gain her, but at same time a bit sad cuz I have a lot of greens to level up, Kingston, Ratatoskr, Chameleon, 2 Liannas, Elkanen and Mother waiting the tonics, I have only 3 so probably I’ll finish all of them only in the next planets alignment😭


I pulled Mother North and Gefjon on the 25 of December with the free tokens they give us.I been wanting her for a very long time. I fought against her in wars and raids and she can be a game changer. I feel very lucky to have got on a single pulled.


Can anybody post their MN talent path? Do you go health and then defense to enhance the minions? The first tree was easy (health & def) but then you get a lot more swords after. Thank you

Here you have the max stats of MN in both choices:

It took me three Decembers to get her last January using 40+ EHTs, appearing on the 2nd to the last EHT available. No Bertila that affair but glad I nabbed her. She has been serving in my second monogreen team as healer/reviver for wars, slowly embleming her up.

Her revive skill is not to be ignored since she has the highest rate among the 3 existing ally reviver in the game. Like my Alberich obtained way back in 2018 as a featured hero in Atlantis, she is valued as a healer, minion summoner and reviver, serving as a safety net in raids and wars. A game changing hero she is.


to those who own her, do you use her on offense? Do you think she is still relevant on defense without costume?

i use her on defense, she’ll always be relevant

on attack i use her sometimes, she saved me few battles from a guaranteed loss


I use her whenever I can on offense and defense. I LB her . Reviving has saved me more times than any single special in my roster . I’m pretty c2p and I landed her free on event pull. She is my most valuable hero and there are few nature heroes I could pull to even consider swapping her out . I obviously dont have a heimdall or alberich. Choice is yours but I find her useful always

I have been using MN on offence alongside of Lianna, Kingston, Lady of the Lake, and Evelyn.

Let me just say, Mother North has saved my ■■■ plenty of times, bringing back Lianna or others to help me kill the enemy. I love taking her on offence.
