:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Valhalla Rare Hero?

It’s important to remember that Season 3 Valhalla Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 3 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 41% chance of summoning Nordri.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 65 times out of 100, you’ll get Nordri by pull 20
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Nordri by pull 57
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Nordri by pull 87

Putting that in Perspective

  • 35 out of every 100 people won’t get Nordri by the 20th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 20 times, 350,000 of those players wouldn’t get Nordri

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Nordri by the 57th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 57 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Nordri

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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:

Any lucky players get this bad boy yet? :smiley:


Yes, started to grow him. I am curious if he’s good to 9-10* titans…


I would definitely use him if i didn’t have king arthur.

Yes. I will raise him like my promising child and feed him to the titans. I have neither Freya nor Arthur.

Here . Is any good?

In One X10 call i’ve got 3 of them… Is nordri valuable for rare challenge events? Does make any sense keeping 2 or 3 of him?

Definitely! Especially if paired with Costumed Gunnar.

There’s not a strong case for multiple, as you’d want to pair him with higher damage output blues to take advantage of the elemental defense debuff.

But I’d personally be inclined to hold onto a couple extras, in case I wanted them at some point.


do you think a twin nordri might possibly be better than a Gato for challenge events? Since he’s hit 3?

Thsnks! I’ve just leveled my new costumed Gunnar…! I was thinking about a gunnar-red-red-red-red but now… Gatos!

That’s exactly what I’m hoping for Nordri for — a Costumed Gunnar + Nordri + 3x Gato team.

My existing version of that was with Ulmer or Karil in place of Nordri.


I currently fight 14* titans. I don’t have Arthur or Frida. My blue team is miki, kiril, Grimm+10, Vela, Lepus+15.

If I maxed Nordri to +20 going on the defense path, and had a turtle banner up, could he survive a hit from a 14* titan?

If so, would it be worth dropping one of those heroes to get in his elemental debuff, knowing that he would die almost every titan fight.

I think you’d be better off with a Karil than a second Nordri: Karil does slightly more damage and you’ve already got blue defense down from the first one

nordri is obviously good for events blue mono stack and 3* tournaments. i was wondering myself if he could be utilised in wars, titans etc.

but i dont think he is very viable for diamond raids and high level titans. Fully emblemed with defense path he should be around 505 defense and 1020 health. almost there but not quite, especially with all the emblemed 4* and 5* around. also i doubt he would survive a single hit form 14* titan. so he could maybe work if you mana pot wilbur or him straight away but i’m not sure it’s worth it.

i think nordri is a proverbial carrot on a stick outside of a 3* range.


i guess at the 14 star titan level most players are dedicated enough to have arthur or frida anyway.

I definitely think nordri can have a place on 9/10 star titans if no frida/arthur. I haven’t ever seen higher so i wouldn’t know.

At the very least, Nordri can be used as a last resort for a titan your alliance really wants to kill, like a rare red titan that might escape; throw nordri in there, mana pot him up and fire away, don’t care if he gets killed.

If the board gets in your favor again, res him, mana him up, and fire again. Massive damage potential. I mean Arthur alone literally doubled my blue titan team’s dmg output.


I just got the guy… And I’m happy about it, since I don’t have any other blue elemental debuffers.

Well, was thinking about taking him against titans (8-9* range) with Invisibility Potion, that could prevent quick death. Oh well, I know that there’s only so many pots you can make, since the titan parts aren’t that abundant, but still. What do you think?


Nordri is going to be my only blue debuffer for some time as I don’t have Arthur or frida. He can work in the higher tier titans, but needs high maintenance. You’re basically going to burn a lot of mats like mana pots or revival scrolls on him. I’m thinking invisibility potion is good to use on him as he would be safe for a certain amount of turns

Good potential for damage there. Good to hear that about Arthur, I just started leveling him for that very reason.

After I get Grimm to +18, i will be embleming Nordri all the way to +20. He is gonna be going into a lot of content until I either get Frida or Arthur. Pair this guy with Ulmer in a very fast 3 star tourney where green is banned and holy hell you’re gonna have a field day!
