*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 Peridot when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Peridot, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Peridot (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Peridot), 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 Peridot.

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

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Peridot 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 Peridot

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Peridot 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 Peridot

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:

So, a friend did the calculations. And Peridot, fully emblemed to attack, LB, and ninja troops, on 3x charge, can deal 1150 damage in total, across 4 turns.

1,150 on every single hero, right? Plus the accuracy hit.

Spicy!

yep. Rayne can deal almost 1100 over 4 turns. So, Peridot can also reach that amount

By the way are they really going to be available tomorrow? v44 patch notes say nothing about their release, unless I am missing something.

Why is it so silent here? Please review and report your view on Peridot. For sure some ppl must have it by now :relaxed:

Happy gaming

Something rotten is happening in the summoning!!
:sob:
All S1 heroes and a lot Iris Hotm!!
Maybe the app issue with the Ninja Tower affected also the summoning!
Hope you guys get the new ninjas!

I pulled Peridot, maxed and now slowly emblem HER (it’s apparently SHE which I never noticed since beta… shame on me). Using on Ninja towers and on my war attacks already.

I have to say, when she was in beta before the change - it was easily Jade level useless. But after the direct damage was added, hero became immediately much better.

Personally, I love playing with Ninjas - the concept of these heroes provides a lot of versatility, and they stack so well together. Peridot’s biggest power lies in the blind - which is helpful for the 1st charge (if you lack tiles, it may help blind aoe hitter), and huge for the 2nd and 3rd charge. DoT has many counters in the game sadly, but it’s a nice thing when you fight line ups with no cleanse; though in case of Peridot, that DoT being ‘an icing’ comes at the cost of some direct damage %. Thankfully, with stats well distributed, Peridot still hits a lot and I did not notice much difference in numbers when I was using Peridot side to side with my Limit Broken, fully emblemmed Cobalt.

Overall, I consider Peridot a nice, versatile and pleasant to use hero. Not as OP as Ruby but I would say on par with Cobalt and Onyx, providing a bit different utility (blind, which is new for Ninjas and for green heroes in general). Defensively, I would be careful as there simple cleanse counters her completely (not to mention @Homaclese with their Elradirs) but I may still try out, especially that I have enough Ninjas to utilize that full family bonus. I also think she scales well with stats so I consider giving her the next set of green aethers (and I have like 15 green legendaries maxed so that means something).

Happy pulling!

Peridot does so much: great hit, sickening poison, & -accuracy. She looks really strong to me. Here’s my review:

Thanks!

10-pull today got me Mica, Peridot and the HOTM. By far my best pull in years, especially for the ninja Tower. Up to now, I had 5 Onyx and 1 Zircon, no other ninjas. Couldn’t be happier!

Only problem is, that leaves me with a whopping one open roster slot. The trade-in option can’t come soon enough!

By far the best pull of my entire time playing. Wowsa.
Super happy to have her. She just jumped the line to max over a few other green 5s as i now have 3 ninjas to max out that sweet bonus. I will be trying her out on my war team as i think she will be a definite upgrade over my current Bertila green tank.
Fingers crossed.

So I almost maxed peridot skill today and i noticed the poison damage had a quiet nerf, from 764 lowered to 540 which is alot… i don’t see any info about it in patch notes. I hope its just a bug or something because it makes it weaker by 200 damage points in poison

You maxed the skill, but have you maxed the card?

DoT is linked to attack stat of the card; if the card is not maxed yet, so is the attack stat, therefore the max DoT won’t be reached.

My Peridot with stats boosted by emblems has 884 DoT at the moment on the last charge.
