  • Is Octros worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Octros on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Octros ?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Octros when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Octros, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Octros (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Octros), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

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

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

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Octros.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Octros by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Octros by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Octros by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Octros by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Octros by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Octros

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Octros by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Octros

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three 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 just got him. My first 5* from Season 4.

To me it looks like “meh”. It has decent stats but not something wow. Same as with the special.

If you have plenty of red tiles, you’re already winning the raid / war match (if you play mono).


Seems pretty OP to me. Hits for a ton, and as if that wasnt enough, has attack down to all. While being a fighter class. He will hit as hard as Killhare 50% of the time, but instead of getting an ailment, he gives one lol.


He has attack down, not defense down.

Any hero that is only situational, cannot be OP. Same as Guardian Owl. He hits hard only if he’s the last hero standing.

As explained above, if you have plenty of red tiles, you’re already in a good shape and have great chances of winning the match if playing mono.


Yes, my mistake. Fixed now.

That’s what I was saying about Frigg… Which is why I didn’t really chase her ever. Yea, tile dependency is a great perk in defense, especially when you can stack a lot of them. But for attack, if your playstyle is in stacks, it’s pretty much only a staple on already won match. And attack is where I focus on, I couldn’t care less whether people are winning or losing against my defense, it’s meaningless.

Octros didn’t amaze me in beta, even in defences. You could tell how significant is the difference between “fast” and “average” for this type of skill. If you ask me, Frigg and Odin should also have been average from the start, but with a bit better damage. They would never dominate the defences for this long. But what do I know, it’s not my job to balance the game :man_shrugging:


So this is what Sudri looks like when he is all grown up. Would be extremely special if you let C Marjana and Saoirse fire before him.

If Zenobia also fires before Octros, does this affect the power of his special too?


You don’t need many tiles for Octros to unleash massive damage to the entire enemy team. He can be devastating on attack. Almost like a red Killhare. I think he’s gonna be a force to be reckoned with.


He should be pretty good in defense, even better with Frigg/Odin because you will have more tiles to remove before they fire.


Geez… Octros and Frigg on defense. You’ll get slapped with a defense down and an attack down.

What next? An Ice hero that does the same as those 2 except it give mana down? That would be a frustrating rage quit for me in that match.

Wait, is octros a male or female then? Beta states that this hero is female. But her physique and stance are both masculine. If not for the ponytail, I would have never thought this hero was a woman

She’s actually a he. Shemale.


If you compare octros to zila lei, zila is obviously feminine and she doesn’t have tentacles growing on her lower jaw like xnolphod and octros. Which those tentacles could double as a beard to suggest male.

Kinda reminds me of Davy Jones from Pirates of caribbean who also had tentacle beard.


Great heroe for defense.

Defense is meaningFULL for wars and tourney defense… I am sure, you just didnt had that in mind, when you wrotte :slight_smile:

Did you give rings to Anzogh then? :slight_smile:

Btw, to be on topic, I would be more than happy to grab Octros!

Odin, Krampus, Octros, Frigg, and Killhare :stuck_out_tongue:


I think she would go well with Morel or Frigg on defence. I think she could make a decent tank. It would force the opponent to play red tiles, even if they brought a different mono. I think she looks worth having personally.

Well I get 1% in tourneys based on my attacks, not my defense. Was getting 1% when I hit A and when I hit C or D, it’s just very much attack-dependent, defense is just meaningful for marginal cases. Also, the tournament rules are so different… Bera will suck in V.Fast, for example; not perfect for buff boost as well. Wouldn’t ascend Bera having tournaments in mind…

Now wars are a different story, obviously, but I have controversial opinion that defense only really matters when you are in like top20 alliances consistently and want to stay there. I am in top 100 alliance now, we have guys who have far worse than ideal heroes; even if we have 2 or 3 superwhales who keep their rosters up with all the best monsters, they won’t carry the whole team on perfect defenses. My personal input of having say Octros replacing Gravemaker or Gefjon in one of my teams is really meaningless to victory, perhaps somewhat trackable with analyzing data from last 50 wars but still meaningless overall. Maybe if whole alliance put out best defense (like what the whale alliances are doing) that would be visible impact, but I ain’t financially capable to play the game on that level. And by the way, the loot from my 5 war chests is enough discouragement from tryharding on wars; won’t sacrifice everything else in my game to get a my dose of garbage and disappointment a bit more often :wink:

No, too afraid to have another hero that will be just benched. I limit broke C Boldtusk and he’s pretty much a healer on par with my other legendary healers so I’m kind of satisfied on that front. Gave some rings to a dupe Gefjon, though still have two more sets for whoever appears. Would I ascend Octros right away when he appears somehow now? Probably not though. I have Guardian Kong who offensively is similar. Defensively I use LB Gefjon; no Odin or Frigg here for tile-depending combo. Not sold on the squid guy.


Rewards definately need to improve and some higher tier arena for raids or some other way of acknowledging offensive raiding and succesfull defenses.

Edit : for me, where I dont have maxed and emblemed heroes, defense score matters alot. Since I normally generate less points from succesfull wins from lower team power, defense actually tips the favour of me having a succesfull raid score.
