:thought_balloon: What do you think of Saoirse ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Saoirse.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Saoirse and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Saoirse worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Saoirse on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Saoirse ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Saoirse as an opponent?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Saoirse when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Saoirse, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Saoirse (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Saoirse), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
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 1.65% chance of summoning Saoirse.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Saoirse by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Saoirse by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Saoirse by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Saoirse by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Saoirse by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Saoirse

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Saoirse by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Saoirse

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:

This is only 5* slayer that I would really like to get, others are good but not crazy.
It doesn’t matter anyway because I won’t pull any of them :man_shrugging:


Am I reading this family bonus correctly?? If you have 3 on a team they will 100% get a health and mana stack EVERY turn that goes by? If that’s true we’re all doomed. Welcome to the new meta.


Paired with Falcon or C Marj would be great!

As I read it, having three unique slayer heroes on a team would lead to getting a bonus of +10 hp /turn and +5% mana generation / turn, stacking them up to 10 times… wouldn’t that mean that after 10 turns each slayer will recover 100 hp/turn and have +50% mana generation? God, I hope I’m wrong about it… this would make ninjas look like blind kittens…

@Guvnor, how about re - formulating some of the poll’s questions? What does “on par with most” mean? It made sense two years ago, when heroes were on par with eachother, but now it makes no sense… who are the subjects suposed to be on par with? Horghall or Frigg? Quintus or Alfrike? There is no “most” anymore, that ship has sailed and sunk to the bottom of the ocean… nowadays “on par with most” doesn’t mean anything, it’s a reliq of a long forgotten past…

Your have it right.
There are very few heroes which can counter this. (Eg: Skadi to all enemies, Lepiota for a single opponent, but even right after it starts over and Skadi’s mana stack is removed.)
Even if you have a single hero, then you have 50% chance to receive this stack.

What do you suggest instead of it ?

Something that reflects reality. Like “on par with the latest heroes” or something like this. We keep calling these heroes 5*, but in fact, they’re way stronger than the original 5s. Quintu’s stats are actually closer to a S3/4 4 than to those of Krampus. New gen heroes are undercover 6*, even if we keep calling them 5*… so a hero can’t be “on par with most”. If it’s on par with S1 it can’t be on par with S4…

Trying some reverse psychology here huh?

A 5* red with def down? Gormek, you’ve got competition now!

Closest to “must-have” of this group

Best fire defense down hero in the entire game.

& A great replacement to those using Santa, or a 4*, as their defense dropper.

If she weren’t so ugly, I’d really, really want her

Although, I still do, just a teensie bit less :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I’m glad I got her on my team. Sheesh… -54% def down, paired with C Marjana!!! Now we just need a red Jott, and them green titans can burn.


@PlayForFun This hero, in the live game has a mana stack of +2 upon activation. May want to edit that into this Hero’s information

@Photon thx the for the notice.
It looks like SG have changed all 4 and 5 star heroes, and they have added some Stacks +2-s back.

Also the amount in mana generation/HP stack is increased for some heroes in specials !


xenobia from S4 will fill that role.

It’s the only hero of this event that have a good use outside of rush war/tournaments so that’s not enough to make me pull.

After few pulls, I was able to score this bodybuilder hero!
As I don’t have C.Marjana, she will be a great addition to my collection!


Does anyone know how the mana buff stack will work with her? Her special is a 10% buff but the family buff is 5%. Other heroes in this family also get 5% mana buff for their special.
As a note on the surveys, just curious how many people that say this hero is a must have are spending money until they get this hero? It seems that for every new legendary hero a majority are saying they are must have but curious how many of those people would dump thousands of dollars into this game for those heroes. Sure, every hero would be great to have, even the niche heroes but I’m not converting to being a whale for those heroes.

It’s not a must have no hero is in this game except elemental debuffer and titans buffer…

The special is 2 stacks of the mana buff

I wouldn’t pair Saoirse with Falcon because they do the same thing.

Saoirse should take the place of Falcon especially if you’re using Falcon against green titans.

It’s basically the 5* version of Falcon especially when you can use mana potions to power her up and fire her right away for that massive defense down
