Or: Where can I get this Hero From?

Past HotM are available from a number of locations depending on their age.

As Onatel has been released for between 12 & 24 months, she can be summoned from both the Atlantis Portal (September 2020 & September 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.

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 love Onatel but she’s so underrated in the forums. I don’t know why.

My brother was lucky to pull her. She’s great on offense, even against Telluria teams.

I wish I had 4 of her.


I think she’s an offensive powerhouse when you can control her, but whenever I face her on a defense she is basically a non-factor. Minimal damage and you can work around her increasing mana steal.


Oh I agree. On defense she does weird things when attacking, lol. On offense, if timed correctly she can almost disable 3 opponents.

She’s tough as nails. Probably tougher than Kunchen. She can take a few hits before shooting her special. Plus her wizard class just fits her.


Onatel was my first legendary hero, my first maxed one too. Now she proudly carries +18 emblems.

She is really tough one, and can be used both attack and defense. Before Telluria era, I tanked with Ursena flanked with Onatel, they worked like a charm. When she is used in offence, it’s not uncommon that she is last lady standing and brings victory home.

Now that everyone plus me uses Telluria as a tank, her shine has waned a bit in defense. It’s more common to use fast sniper (or Drake) than average hit three hero in wing, but she performs there too and can be pain to take down thanks to her spirit link that gives a bit healing too.

I really like her, together with Drake Fong they are two best holy hotms.


My only yellow 5* hero till date… Can’t get enough of her.

I got her in Atlantis last year, my first maxed legendary hero and a backbone of my team.

Got her when she was the HOTM on the month of release. I have 3 monoyellow teams capable of tackling most purple-tanked teams, and with Onatel are Guardian Gazelle and Rana (all average mana generating heroes). Gazelle makes them beefy and deal double damage while Onatel steals enemy mana and Rana munching enemy health. My other teams are on fast mana (Poseidon, Joon costume, Drake and Woolerton) and very fast mana (all 5 Jackals).
