:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Valhalla Featured Legendary Hero?

Below odds are current as of June 30, 2020. Odds will change as additional S3 5* heroes are added to the “non-featured” hero pool.

It’s important to remember that Season 3 Valhalla Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Season 3 Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.43% chance of summoning Bera.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 13 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 100
  • 51 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 500
  • 76 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 1500
  • 89 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 1500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 2073
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Salmon Loki by pull 3186

Putting that in Perspective

Gems cost $99.99 US for 10,000. A 30x Summons costs $83.99 US.

  • 87 out of every 100 people won’t get Salmon Loki by the 100th pull.

  • If 1 Million players each spent $281.97 USD to summon 100 times, 870,000 of those players wouldn’t get Salmon Loki.

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Salmon Loki by the 2073rd pull.

  • If 1 Million players each spent $5,805.92 USD to summon 2073 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Salmon Loki.

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these 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:

i am very disappointed to see him released like this.

the majority of the feedback in the beta was negative on his current version and had many simple, great ideas to make him better.

too bad the feedback got ignored…

he is probably the worst s3 5*

But of course SG had to go in and change Salmon from what would’ve been a fun and troll-ish hero to something that is just so utterly neutered it isn’t even funny anymore. Blah.

Congratulations, you have been tricked.

I heard Salmon Loki is rendered useless against Cast Iron Chef…

Quick make a youtube video how it special works

Indeed I have, and unfortunately trickster fish is more like trash fish in its current state lol…

Can’t be too angry though, got him on my very first coin pull so not a huge loss.

It’s basically like G. Chameleon, except much much worse if you can believe it. At least G. Chameleon gives the team two very useful buffs, all this fish will do is frustrate you when used on offense since it could change enemies to potentially the “wrong” color. On defense… eh I dunno, as long as you don’t take yellow his special is completely passive, but I guess I could see a situation for rush where your heroes keep changing color and you can’t charge a single special? Dunno, this version of Salmon is just… blah.

Having such a useless hero as featured, or in the pool at all, has made me not pull just to avoid him. Was looking forward to a few pulls for bera / lord Loki…

Like the insanely bad odds aren’t enough - imagine a poor soul dropping a few hundred bucks, having the excitement of pulling a 5* if you’re lucky, then getting this dude…very very expensive way to get a screenshot of a purple fish.

what can be this fish be uesd for??

As a pet in your aquarium.

What he means is probably the visual and the sound of the special. Eventhough it’s a trashy Hero, but we are just curious to see the visual lol

To fill your bench like forever… Until they change it but it’s unlikely to happen.

It doesn’t even feel like it’s a hero. Just a regular fish. Bah, 50 pulls and all feeders, couldn’t even get this fish as a consolation prize. A hero whose purpose is to be mounted on a wall

Agree with u…
We spend hundreds of dollars and in the end you get this FISH. you will end up with high blood pressure and on the other hand. $&G staff will laugh after getting our money and they buy salmon ( REAL SALMON FISH ) which is good for their health!!!

Honestly I laughed a little when I got the fish. First coin pull = fish, so needless to say everything after that was just super expensive feeders and/or hot garbage. Sure sets the tone don’t it.
