:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:

Or: How many summons are needed to get a HOTM?

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

It’s important to remember that HOTM have very low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a HOTM.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 12.3% chance of summoning the HOTM.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 73 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 229
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 352

Putting that in Perspective

  • 27 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 270,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 229th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 229 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

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:


: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.

Wow @Guvnor is typing , any update ? Lol poll :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@zephyr1 I think you have the wrong special skill description? At least it’s not the latest beta version… but maybe you know more than we do. :wink:

@Aquaginera_7DD did u see the buff post? If buff when will it happen?

What buff are you referring to?

Discussion in the link of the above post

The cleansing skill is removed?

Still not quite sure what you mean… but if the hero gets released like zephyr is stating then he’ll be released like this in 54 minutes. :slight_smile:

We shall see.

Haha this one => ⚖ Hero Balance Discussion: Raffaele

Sorry English not my mother tongue so my English may be bad :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I thought @zephyr1 little bit in a frustrated mood due to new beta edit sometimes and he is super tired may be. Atleast u will know the skill in 59 minutes in live

Yes, what about the thread?

The moderators create it in advance to preempt all the “buff/nerf XY hero” threads that are inevitable it seems.
No buffs or anything are announced as of right now. He’s not even released. :smile:

Yeah but if there is any it is better to release before events because then only players can decide , my suggestion.

I believe you are correct. This appears to be the latest as of March 17. I’ve updated it. We’ll adjust as needed when we see the final version.

There won’t be any buff/nerf/adjustment happening to him soon is my guess. :smile:

When heroes are released, there are no plans for an immediate adjustment. As we know, that is not always the case, but it is the exception, not the rule.

Released with:

  • Heals all allies who have less than 50% HP left to 50% health.
  • All allies regenerate 812 HP over 4 turns.
  • Dispels status ailments from all allies.
  • Element Link gives all Ice allies +30% defense against Special Skills for 4 turns. This effect can’t be dispelled.
