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 2% chance of summoning Rumpelstiltskin.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 18 times out of 100, you’ll get Rumpelstiltskin by pull 100
  • 63 times out of 100, you’ll get Rumpelstiltskin by pull 500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Rumpelstiltskin by pull 1500
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Rumpelstiltskin by pull 2300

Putting that in Perspective

  • 82 out of every 100 people won’t get Rumpelstiltskin by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::zero::zero: times, 820,000 of those players wouldn’t get Rumpelstiltskin

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Rumpelstiltskin by the 1500th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero::zero: times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Rumpelstiltskin

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:

No one commenting on Rumpels - that pretty much says it all right? Lol

I actually wouldn’t mind having him given what I currently have. My blue roster is pretty empty…

But I’d much prefer Snow White…

He is a bit chaotic and I think raids would be more interesting with him because you don’t know what will happen next when you fire him

If I got him, I would level him!

I think he’s a fun hero to use given he’s got three different specials, all of which are extremely powerful!


I have him for a long while and I love using him :slight_smile:

I don’t have him, but I would level him. Blue is my strongest color and I still would.

Heck, I still use Danzaburo for kicks and only 2 of 3 specials are useful on him. This guy goes 3 for 3. 100%, how can you lose!?!


I have a First World Problem going here here… I want to increase my total power but at the same time keep my Rainbow team… I just pulled Rumpelstiltskin & was thinking about adding him to replace Richard as blue so I could add his emblems to Telly to increase my total power & get rid of 1 of my emblem conflicts… I’m trying to decide if it’s worth losing the hitting power & D of Richard to do it… This is my current team:

Seshat +7
GM +9
Telly +7
Richard +6
Neith +3

I also have:

Santa +7
Isarnia +7
Malosi 3/70
Quintus 3/70 both sides Costumed
Clarissa about to fully Ascend



I really liked the thought of Telly flanked by GM & Clarissa because the enemy would have to fight under constant Burn & Poison but Clarissa is Paladin so I’d still have that emblem conflict… :cry:

BTW: I’m running at least +11 mana troops for everyone except Blue is the +12 D troop but I do have +11 mana Blue to use…

What is ur opinion of adding Rumpelstiltskin in place of Richard? Or do u see a better team I could use?? Thank u for any help u can give!! :pray:t2::pray:t2::pray:t2:

I’d do it with my eyes closed, but wait for the nerf result of Telly.
Rumple flanking Telly is a great option and they don’t fight for emblems like Richard.

I have him and I would really like to fully ascend him, he always impressed me quite positively when I fought against him.

But unfortunately I have no telescopes (better, I have 7 but Miki is first in line, as we’re moving to 12* titans) and no emblems (still have to give Ursena 5 nodes to get the mana generation bonus)

Is he good at 3/70?

Squishy at 3 70 but sufficient to be in 6th war team fighting against the equivalents.

Mine stay at +14 emblem. A mainstay in my offense team.

I just scored him! (I was kind of after Snow White but stopped after a 10x pull and some tokens, I felt lucky enough)

I’m so happy! I can finally continue work on this dream team:

I’ll report back when Rumpel is a bit more developed.

I wish they would use the original German spelling, Rumpelstilzchen…


I wasn’t expecting much of anything in my summons and lo and behold, I pulled him, Hansel and Gretal. Guess they didn’t want to break them up😄
And now I know to level him up though it will be a bit before emblems right now.

Is Rumpelstin good? Is it worth accessing?

Rumpelstin é bom? Vale a pena acesder?

Absolutely! Mine is stuck at 3/70, I have priorities, Ariel, but to me he’s part of the heart of the game. A game of chance. He’s fun to play with.

If you like Wu Kong and Ranvir doesn’t drive you crazy, you’ll like the Rumpel.

Well worth it. He will surprise you with his unexpected specials and good tiles damage. Expecting a healing when your heroes are weak, instead, he’ll just crush the entire opponents with his devastating blow.
Or he’ll just drew the star out of nowhere when you badly need them.
He is an Quintus, Kiril and mini Rigard in one!

Wu and Ranvir caused many misses but never a single misses from Rumpelstiltskin. He just surprise you with few unexpected tricks up his sleeves.


Good point! Some people find him unreliable, in that he doesn’t necessarily give you what you want at a particular point in time.

I don’t care, I agree, he’s always useful. I do love him.


All of his specials are useful. Not really matter which one he will cast at any time but so far he had been very reliable.
From my statistic, the most was the skull, followed by the cross with the star appeared to be the lesser of the two.
