: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 Neith has been released for between 12 & 24 months, she can be summoned from both the Atlantis Portal (October 2020 & October 2021) and in the Tavern of Legends Portal.

She can also be “Trained” using the Hero Academy Level 10.

Atlantis Portal
Old HotM’s are featured in the Atlantis Portal a total of two times. Once in the month proceeding their Anniversary Month of initial Release (11 months after release) and again on the next Anniversary Month (23 months after release).

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
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:

I’m a longtime Neith fan here, I think she is pretty underrated myself. Her damage is mediocre but the main appeal she has for me is blinding all enemies at average speed.

She’s pretty easy to bring to 9 tiles after that thanks to her innate mana link – I use a level 15 mana troop on her, which does mean a 10 tile skill at first, but afterwards it becomes a 9 tile skill which at 4 turns is pretty easy to set up continuously.

I remember really liking her with Sif as well when I played beta since both their speed buffs stack and you can get to a +28% mana speed buff before troops, meaning your average heroes affected by both link and mana buff now charge in 8 tiles. If you’re lucky enough to have both I would recommend trying that combo out.

Another fun combo I am lucky enough to enjoy for offense is Guinevere + Neith + Leonidas. That string of skills takes out 30% mana of all enemies, and the target Leo hits goes back 70% mana. Even at average speed this sometimes feels really silly, I’ve had war matches where my opponents never fire.

Anyway I think Neith is an underrated support hero myself, and I would level another one if I had one. Blind does require luck but a miss coming in clutch can be very gamechanging.

I don’t have her, but she is one of the most difficult heroes for me to face. Maybe that is specifically because of my team config - I rely on Proteus to block mana, Grazul to block status ailments and and Lady Loki to throw them back. Neith is immune to mana block, her mana cut can’t be blocked or reversed, and while blind can be reversed it is unreliable as it is in effect at the start of the special and only seems to get cleansed at the end.

All in all I would rather avoid a defense with Neith in it, more so than any other hero I can think of including BK, Jabber, Finley, Killhare, Master Lepus (I am not including GTV here as I actively hunt out GTV)

Blind ailment is incompatible with mana controllers as Merlín or Alfrike. What’s the point of making you ennemies hit themselves if they are going to fail. So if you are used to rely on this type of controllers, Keith and lots of yellows are more of a hindrance.
Now, if your attack pattern is diferent, Neith is ok. I won’t recommend her as a first 5* yellow to ascend. But if you already have a yellow sniper and a good tank of a any color, she is quite useful as a support.
Some 5* are good no matter what’s your gaming preference. Neith isn’t that kind. If she fits in your team dynamics, she is really good with her mana reduction and blind combo.
Saying this, she is not as situational as other heroes either. So not as bad as she looked like when first released, but still not the best one.

I don’t have her but I absolutely hate to fight her. That mana down and blind combo means one turn lost at the very least unless the cleric/monk with cleanse decides to trigger the talent. She is easily neutralized by QoH or BK and she is probably not very useful on offense but I think she deserves more credit than she is given.

Ahh, my first HOTM. She’s now maxed and emblemed (attack path, really :D) and she’s a pretty solid hero, I prefer her over Onatel in my defence team. (But I take Onatel to raids more often).

I want to level another… one of my favorites.

In a rainbow, there’s several choices … but she really shines in a Yellow or Yurple stack high level trooos

Blind, mana cut … sure… but she also doesn’t hit hard enough to automatically suicide on a reflector, and can pierce…

Yellow has multiple hitters, shes more suppressing fire

Small correction. It can be blocked by the Red Hood minions :slight_smile:

And those protected by Poseidon buff, Seshat, and chance with clerics. Think that’s all, and a fairly small list.

On topic - have her and love using her on both offense and defense. Just to bad my ranger emblems are currently going to Seshat.
