Or: How many summons are needed to get a Challenge Event Hero?

Special thanks to @Garanwyn for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.

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 56% chance of summoning Vodnik.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 80 times out of 100, you’ll get Vodnik by pull 20
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Vodnik by pull 37
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Vodnik by pull 56

Putting that in Perspective

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

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 20 times, 200,000 of those players wouldn’t get Vodnik

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Vodnik by the 37th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 37 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Vodnik

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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

This thread is a great place to discuss anything and everything related to Vodnik.

Once those discussions have yielded notable insights, I encourage others to make reference guides in #player-guides that synopsize specific questions and answers about Vodnik.

Topics that are most appropriate for that are ones that players are likely to be searching for or wondering about in the future.

Creating a guide is a good way to make that information findable in the future without having to read through a ton of posts. You can make use of the Forum quote feature to avoid having to rewrite explanations that have already been well written.

Here’s an example of such a post: [GUIDE] How does the Queen of Hearts’ Taunt work with AoE specials, or specials affecting nearby enemies in addition to the target?

I just pulled 2 Vodniks…always looking for neat 3* characters for the events and tournaments.

He’s in the same pool as Gato and Valen though and doesn’t hit as hard but has a bit more health??? Sure if they have a good mana build up he hits a bit harder so it’s mainly bosses in events??

I’m not convinced I’d want to keep him over my Gatos or Valens

The hitting harder when more mana makes him bosses orientated yes.
For normal mobs I would need to test and see him in action to see if he can make it to the event squad in blue color.

He combos well with cabin boy peters. Silence forces the target to keep mana to full

Vodnik’s skill is pretty strong if his target has a lot of mana, not very impressive if they have low mana. This means his usefulness is going to be restricted for challenge event bosses, and for 3* tournaments.

For offense, his attack stat leaves a lot to be desired; his tile damage isn’t bad, but it’s nowhere near as good as Ulmer or Gato, who come with more valuable secondary effects with their skill. Both Karil and Valen have better tile damage too, and less situational skills: Valen has a valuable fast def-, and even Karil has his place in a blue stack for challenge events (spread damage in the boss round) and for crowd control during raid tournaments. Since Vodnik relies on enemy mana to hit at his strongest, that leaves him in a very odd spot for offense.

He impresses me more for defense teams in 3* tournaments though. He’d be a good flank to Carver, Chochin, or Bauchan tanks, since he can charge his skill quickly and these tanks can help him set up a strong snipe to an attacker. He could tank as well, since he’ll likely fire when the enemy is at close to full mana. I would personally prefer him as a flank though, since his skill is just a damage dealing snipe.

Would also be handy in colour stack using multiple of him due to the pirate bonus

The family bonuses only work for unique heroes, which means you don’t get the bonus for the second, third, etc. copies of the same heroes. Worth noting… if you have a team of only Vodnik’s, then none of them would get the bonus. You need at least 2 unique heroes to get the bonus.

I’m surprised this guy isn’t the one named Finley. Looks interesting.

I think I’ll level Vodnik, if anything just to try him out and have a little fun. He’s got one nasty seaweed/pit hair problem though, dude needs some lessons in hygiene.

Fin-ley… I see what you did there :thinking:

I caught… er pulled Vodnik with 10 event coins. He seems decent for a 3*. Game devs probably created him to fight against against those level 10 - 15 event bosses. He will be pretty tanky with emblems.

I’d probably replace Valen and put Vodnik in my 3* blue stack, but depends on how fast is Vodnik’s special animation. Hopefully it’s faster than Valen’s.

Out of 12 pulls, I got 3 vodnik. Really not sure how many I want to keep. One should be maxed I think. After that…

I think 1 of him is enough personally. Gato is better to have duplicates of because his snipe hits consistently hard.

Wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep the dupes until the first one is maxed to level up his skill though. Just in case his skill does not cooperate when you max his level.

Not sure if I will level my Vodnik for events as Valen and Gato had been doing well in Pirates of Corellia epic stage…
