:thought_balloon: What do you think of Sapphire ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Sapphire.

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

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Sapphire worth summoning for?

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

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Sapphire ?

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

  • Would you give Sapphire Rogue Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Sapphire’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Sapphire and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Sapphire, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*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 Sapphire when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Sapphire, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Sapphire (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Sapphire), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Epic Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get an Epic 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 17.5% chance of summoning Sapphire.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 69 times out of 100, you’ll get Sapphire by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Sapphire by pull 156 (46,800 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Sapphire by pull 240 (62,400 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 31 out of every 100 people won’t get Sapphire by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 309,196 of those players wouldn’t get Sapphire
  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Sapphire by the 156th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::five::zero: times, 56,280 of those players wouldn’t get Sapphire
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Sapphire by the 240th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::four::zero: times, 10,013 of those players wouldn’t get Sapphire

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.

Just pulled Sapphire and thought I’d come and see what the consensus was on her. Turns out, she doesn’t seem to garner strong opinions; whilst the polls are broadly positive, they’ve only had 20 odd votes and no-one has a strong enough opinion to post anything in 9 months lol.

Well I’m pleased with the pull, she looks good for my roster and I’m looking for a new rogue to emblem, and eventually I can use her on a team with Ametrine for the family bonus.

This is mine:

Got her the first NT, still only tower hero of any description I’ve got.

I use her in 4* tournies. Less in war as I don’t have enough mana troops for a blue stack but I enjoy her

Thanks, Did you emblem the attack path?

I think 4* Tournaments and events is where she’ll get most use for me too, though might get onto my war teams from time to time (and definitely in the 3 Kingdoms)

Yeah, all attack. Decided she’d be squishy either way so might as well maximise her hit and hope for rogue evades. I like to use her with CKiril and Mist.

I don’t use him anymore.

I even reset the emblems to give them to Felton et Alessia (3*) :rofl:

Unless you use him a lot, do not consider LB, no :slight_smile:

I just got him, looks ok with 3rd charge, but I’m quite surprised with the votes.

that’s 15 tiles…

but like always, it depends on your roster depth :slight_smile:

once again, I would ascend him for the ninja tower event, but wouldn’t spend the aethers.
