:thought_balloon: What do you think of Orla ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Orla.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Orla and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Orla worth summoning for?

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

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Orla ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Orla as an opponent?

  • Would you give Orla Ranger Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

*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 Orla when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Orla, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Orla (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Orla), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Epic Event hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic 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 17.5% chance of summoning Orla.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 69 times out of 100, you’ll get Orla by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Orla by pull 156 (46,800 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Orla by pull 240 (62,400 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 31 out of every 100 people won’t get Orla by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 309,196 of those players wouldn’t get Orla
  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Orla by the 156th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero: times, 56,280 of those players wouldn’t get Orla
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Orla by the 240th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four::zero: times, 10,013 of those players wouldn’t get Orla

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:

It’s confusingly worded on the card, but having played with her, I’m pretty sure the mana generation stack is still 5%. The 10% on the card is the sum of the two stacks she gets (which did change from Beta)

Agree, this was my take away too. It’s found the family bonus helps to clarify it a bit.

In Beta when we saw Stack +2 in the first round, and 10% percent was there in the mana generation stack, then 20% mana generation increase was added.

This would enable to reach +100% mana generation increase if you fill the mana bar 5 times with mana poitions in the beginning of the battle.

Otherwise each turn the maximum reachable mana generation increase is reduced by 5%.

Unfortunaltely I do not have any 4-5 star event hero yet, but I will watch these when I play the event.

My experience using her is that a full stack gives +50% mana generation. I guess it’s confusing either way it’s worded :slight_smile:

I have checked how they behave on the events, and you are right.
2 stacks are added and 10% mana generation increase is added.

It looks like this behavior is changed since Beta too.


Don’t have her maxed yet, 4/23 so far, but I tested her in a team with 4 other green heroes. 3 average speed and one other slow hero than her. No mana troops or costumes or emblems. Just wanted to see how long it takes her to make it to average speed. Not too long is the answer. After she fired for the first time she had 5 +5 mana gain buffs and was roughly the same speed as the average heroes. After she was maxed at the 10 stack, she was faster than the average heroes.

This was farming, so take the time it takes her to get to a 10 stack with a grain of salt. Premium conditions for maxing that stack. But overall I was pretty impressed.


Could have added “nearby enemies” in Effect 1.

Now that she has been out for a while, anyone here use her a lot? I have some extra ranger emblems…is she worth it?

Thanks in advance!

I maxed her, due to a dearth in 4* green firepower. Haven’t emblemed her yet though.

She fits into my scheme somewhat, but I don’t know if I would neglect going to +20 on an LB 3* over her. She’s good, but she’s no Hansel or Peters.


Thank you kalis. That helps!

I’ve got her to +19 and she’s performing better than I expected. She’s a good finisher and works well with cillian and aodhan. Cillian is still my favorite of the 4* slayers, but I’m liking her more each time I use her. Maybe I’m missing someone, but I can’t think of another 4* who comes close to the 460%.
+19 stats using any attack option are 759 736 1395


I got the three of them, but not sure how to use them appart from the slayers event of course. I have 3 cillian, 1 aodhan and 1 orla, not sure how effective would be using all them together, maybe without a healer given that cillian resurrects and all regenerate hp turn after turn. Another option would be to use 1 of each with two bryanhilds to speed them up, have you tried that?

I also have her +19. I could almost say I love her. A great finisher and can take a decent beating. She outlasts other 4 stars and even takes a big snipe better than my 4/76 Elradir. I know, not saying all that much…

Even if the opponent isn’t below 50%, then small mana slow is a fair reward. I have no regrets at all.


I think your brynhild idea is great but they would be extremely vulnerable to a red stack. I’ve struggled to find ways to use 4* mana regen to help the slayers in raid tournaments. That’s what the 4* slayers are good for, besides a late war team.

You could stick Lancelot between cillian and aodhan in a no blue tournament, or use brynhild next to orla in a no red one.

For me, the easiest mana regen hero to fit in with the slayers is probably d’andre.

Off topic, but I’m considering limit breaking orla. Is anyone else thinking about this? I feel like the best damage dealing options are Marcel (who I don’t have), jack o hare, orla, and Caedmon/Caedmon costume . Very tough decision!


I will be limit breaking Orla along with Brynhild. Melendor is the other option, but, im not sure I’d do that…yet.


Definitely gonna break Brynhild. Been using her on my raid defense, for her mana regen and dispel block.

However, I was going to break Marcel, because of his hit 3 and defense down. But then I go to thinking…and even convinced, that using Marcel first, then firing a LB Orla would be more devastating that firing a LB Marcel, then Orla. Am I correct on that?

Although, I figure if you LB Jack, then that would just KO the three that Marcel hit.

Hell with it… Brynhild can stay at 70, and Orla and Jack will be broken and ride Almur and Marcel’s def down to the victory circle. Good talk, everyone!!


I’m in a similar debate about LB Orla. The more I use her the more I like her. Have her at +19 and under the right circumstances, I’ve had her hit 5* opponents for over 1K damage.

My other option would be Buddy +19. I don’t use my Brynhild very often and My Almur will be perpetually stuck at +3 because I have other heroes in line to sap up any of the emblems I get (plus I don’t use him as often now with a Fogg+20.

Now that she’s been out a while, do any of you have as high an opinion of her as I do?
