: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 2% chance of summoning Sargasso.

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

Putting that in Perspective

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

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

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

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

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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:

Got today Sargasso. From what I read, he is one of the worse 5 star purple hero with a C rate.

Fun fact: Pirates are known to rise from the dead. Much like this thread.

Well, he will stay on 1/1. It would be a waste of resources to bring him to 3/70. He would need a buff to be a little bit competitive against other heroes.

It could happen, I had leveled Aegir until I picked up better options, and then he sat for a long time until the buffed him.

I finished him, but rarely need a blue tank, oh well.

I am not sure if he is in pipeline for improvement. Would be nice since I have him but i don’t believe that is going to happen

Wow… No one actually talk about him?

He’s not a MASSIVELy common hero as it is (by virtue of being an event hero).

Added to that he’s widely regarded as being on the weaker side, there isn’t going to be a huge number of people chatting about him :wink:

Personally I have him but haven’t levelled him past 2-60

I think he has uses, primarily in Field Aid wars & going against healer heavy teams… Maybe he’ll gain a lot of popularity given the proliferation of Telluria as a new tank!

I also think he’s a pretty OK counter to Guin except that his damage is pretty meh AND he doesn’t resist / stop the mana cut

Hello,

could someone say a little bit more about this hero? Is he useful, worth ascending? Or nothing has changed since March (since last reply in this thread)?
Thank you.

Poor sargasso, nobody even wants to talk about him.:disappointed_relieved:

OMG! This is depressing. I just love the Pirates. Visually. And they have guns.

I have and love Lady Locke, Peters is good but Boomer is depressing. I would love to build a Pirates team for fun and aesthetics.

So I saved my gems for ages, pulled 60 or 70(can’t remember, for me that’s going really hard) of the damn things, no Finley, no Marie-Therese(probs my favorite artwork), no Kestrel, but…

Sargasso.

And 5 more Peters, some Vodniks and another Boomer.

So here I am, depressed. Sargasso’s not popular.:sob:

He sits at 1-1 on my bench together with Obakan, Horghall, Owl, etc. Too many good purples ahead of him.

I think he’s pretty good, a 72% healing cut that lasts 4 rounds is a long time, could be great in field aid or against 2+ healers on defense. I have Rana and her healing prevention lasts only 2 rounds and it’s been useful.

If you plan on running mono, it helps to have one non-sniper on the team.

Also, a level 23 mana troop could make him more generically useful as well.

But yeah, his power is situational but still useful, you just need to pick your team match-up in war.

It would have been better if his damage is equal to all three and not minor nearby. That way, his healing cut would be relevant to all three hit by it. A good damage to three that can be healed only a little would be dangerous for the opposing team.

And since the healing cut can be cleansed and that there are plenty of average and fast cleansers, he will just be left with hit target and minor nearby at average speed which is underwhelming for an event hero.

If his present skills remain as is and his speed remains average, he should at least be given a 3rd skill. Perhaps a cleanse just as what was given to g.kong.

He is really outdated by the newer heroes.

Considering the odds for getting him… he’s pitiful. Even more than khiona.

Having lady loke, krestel and Marie alongside him doesn’t help neither. The overpowered Finley also makes him look bad.

Even Peter would be a better pull for me.

His artwork is super, at least. He is a splashy version of Perseus - a weak HOTM.

@Wormwood I know uses or used sargasso in his war raid videos. Any postived things you can say about him.

I did use him for a long time actually, he was one of my favorite heroes to use with Panther, other splash attack heroes and/or snipers. I’ll have to say he better suited for the old meta, however, there’s still a couple of things that can make him useable. 1) He has a decent attack, not the best not the worst but can cause significant damage if paired with Panther or other defense down heroes and 2) his ability to negate healing is HUGE, one of the best in the game actually. This is can be play a huge factor in your favor during heal aid wars.

I don’t expect many will want to max him while Dark element is flooded with so many good heroes, however, I wouldn’t consider a bad option, specially when you’re limited on options. I maxed him because I like playing with the heroes I have and I hate sitting on mats for chance at “better” more popular options. I just learned to play with what I had at the time and it taught me that there aren’t as many “bad” heroes as people think, just more popular options…

And that’s why you pick a war team that doesn’t have a cleanser or you time it better. I swear, people just want to take the same (mono) team to every fight, expect to win, and don’t even want to think about strategy or tactics. It’s sad.

But yeah, he’s definitely outdated compared to some of the new heroes. And yeah, compared to Finley he sucks, almost every hero sucks compared to Finley. He sucks compared to Jabberwock too. But it doesn’t mean they aren’t usable.

Underwhelming doesn’t mean unusable right? I use him in healing field aid. But i still see him as underwhelming as an event hero.

If field aid is not for healing, would have been better to bring a damage dealer to take down the healer instead of preventing a large percentage of the heal to 3 allies.

Also, i mostly use 3-2 stack and not mono, looking for synergies that best suited against the enemy tank and 1 flank. I do attack enemies with as high as 700tp disadvantage and have a good percentage of winning. I just have to say this because i do not know if you referring to me as one of the “people” who does not think of strategy and tactics.
