:boom: Summons Availability :boom:
Or: Where can I get this Hero From?
Past HotM are available from a number of locations depending on their age.

As Musashi has been released for >24 months, he can ONLY be summoned in the Tavern of Legends Portal.
He can also be “Trained” using the Hero Academy Level 10.

Tavern of Legends
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are added to the summons pool in the Tavern of Legends Portal.

Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining
HotM’s which are >12 months of age are also added as a possible outcome of Hero Academy Level 10 Retraining.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
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
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:

I don’t have this guy but was bummed to see not a single person had anything (positive and/or constructive) to say.

I have seen him in raids a few times and love the art. I think his power is pretty cool. By no means game changing, but he plenty usable at least by my F2P standards. His A value is off the charts. I saw a +20 whose A value was over 900, but base A still solid. Good for titans if nothing else I guess.

I use Elkanen +15 pretty regularly and this guy is like an Elkanen on steroids for attack.

Hoping with a bump someone who has him and uses him chimes in :wink:

Cool hero I would love to get! :+1:


Use him in yellow stack does well with mist and c joon. I don’t have emblems on him now but is really.solid if you do put them on him. Rogue is probably the best emblem class.
The self heal is high in a yellow stack.
Overall I think he is a b/b+ hero as long as you can afford to have a pure damage dealer. Won’t work as well outside of heavy stacks

The only good thing he has is stat. He has high attack. About only his skill, I think Elkanen skill is little better.

I think Musashi is below average or 50-75% group for non-classic 5*.(1-25% is top, 25-50% is higher than average, 75-100% is worst)

He’s helped diversify my yellow stack on offense. A Fast hit-3 is good to soften defenders for snipers and finish low HP defenders.

Also, his tile damage is great on titans.

He’s also useful on an auto-farm team. He’s not the fanciest hero, but ovverall, no regrets maxing him.

Just got him from last tavern and don’t see a reason to level him up, my yellow roster is: Prof. Lidenbrock +20, Poseidón +20, Joon +12, Delilah +7, G. Owl +7, Guinevere, Leonidas & Justice 3.70 and Delilah, Vivica & Joon 1.1

Is Musashi still relevant? I have him on an alt with 18 emblem nodes, but tend to run my LB +19 Mist more.

Should I LB him? He is my only 5* yellow other than Mica, who is also maxed. I do not spend on this alt, so my 5* will come from TC20, single pulls with coins/gems from various portals, and HA10 (as soon as i have the ham to research it).

I just finished lbing mine.

He gets use in every war since getting that 15% def 15% attack elemental link, stacking 3 or 5. Stacking also makes his self heal quite good. And he is really good in titans.

I did him over c joon, uraeus, hamitra and devanna (part levelled). His total damage output is greater and with his already high attack he gainst the most from the attack boost, and he is quite delicate so also benefits the most from the defense boost. Fully LBd and emblemed (attack path) he is still far from the sturdiest hero but his survivability gets to a “decent” level and is further supported by his elemental link, his self-heal and his rogue class

In your position i would lb him.


This is good to hear, and I appreciate the feedback! I went ahead and did the LB on him and look forward to getting more use out of him!

May the boards be in your favor!

Musashi is looking intriguing for 10 souls in this SE. Anyone who uses him much want to weigh in? I would probably use him in a 3:2 holy stack to get the most out of that awesome elemental link. I could LB him.

Just saying, i would not get him. He was a glass cannon 2-3 years ago, but even with LB, he has just became a glass… just to compare, his stats and even damage is equal to S1-Obakan. Here is my obakan, that way you can compare Musashi and his stats.

His stats are obsolete for today’s game play.
But if you have another 2017 HOTM, he will be useful as the link is passed on to all cards.

This is helpful, thanks.

A second vote for this. I will have to look at his number more closely. I appreciate the responses.

I enjoyed him, but I also did just take his emblems away a couple months ago

If you mono his heal from tiles can be really big.

I wouldn’t mind the stats. There are so many overhealers, D boosts, revives, minions, and ways to protect heroes he would be fine if you like him.
