Avoiding Overspending & Heartache 

Or: How many summons are needed to get an Underwild Featured Legendary Hero? 
It’s important to remember that Season 4 Underwild Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 4 Hero.
On average, in a 10pull, you have a 3.3% chance of summoning Prof. Lidenbrock (Featured).
But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.
Some useful insights:
 9 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by pull 30
 28 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by pull 100
 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by pull 300
 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by pull 898
 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by pull 1380
Putting that in Perspective
Gems cost $99.99 US for 10,000. A 30x Summons costs $83.99 US.

91 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by the 30th pull.

If 1 Million players each spent
$83.99 USDto summon 30 times, 904,687 of those players wouldn’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock. 
28 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by the 100th pull.

If 1 Million players each spent
$281.97 USDto summon 100 times, 716,133 of those players wouldn’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock. 
1 out of every 100 people won’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock by the 1,380th pull.

If 1 Million players each each spent
$3,863.61 USDto summon 1,380 times, 9,975 of those players wouldn’t get Featured Prof. Lidenbrock.

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.
