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

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 2.1% chance of summoning Sif.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 19 times out of 100, you’ll get Sif by pull 100
  • 66 times out of 100, you’ll get Sif by pull 500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Sif by pull 1382
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Sif by pull 2124

Putting that in Perspective

  • 81 out of every 100 people won’t get Sif by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 810,000 of those players wouldn’t get Sif

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Sif by the 1382nd pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 1382 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Sif

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:

If the received damage is reduced then how will the counter attack will have an impact ? :roll_eyes:

2 Likes

The damage reduction happens after the counterattack — so you get the benefits of both.

The counterattack amount will always be the full amount.

This! It’s bloody awesome!!

Adding in that Sif is the one 5* hero in the current release that I’d love to get!!

Alfrike later on maybe but Sif I’d love to get from this first release pool

I got Sif however it’s weird that her lvl 1 special has -64% reduced damage and her lvl 8 had only -50%

That was a bug, and has been fixed.

Just restart your app.

Yeih got her.
Hope to lvl her fast. Will take some time (im more new - lvl 28 atm)
Had not a single reflector until now, really happy to have a 5☆ ref now!
Shes a tank of course, right?
My team atm (left to right) is rigard / kingston / boldtusk / triton / justitia — how would you suggest to change when adding sif? Just instead of boldtusk? Or dismiss rigard or one of the snipers?
Somehow special of reflect from sif and special dismiss from justitia is also not perfect together. But i have no other leveld multi damage hero.

Oh yes, I need her! She’ll be my BK’s best friend. Better than Elena in that pair and she has an average mana.

My exact same thought… that‘s ehy i wanted her and i got her on my first 10 pull… so happy about it

Except that combined with BK, that’s two heroes with no direct damage, and if BK’s special is on, Sif’s riposte is not as effective… so maybe not the ideal combination.

BK + counter = perfectest combination ever!

I’ve posted it elsewhere on the BK threads so habehave a look for it but here’s a teaser

Does BK’s special actually combine the damage that would have been caused before the reflect happens, then? I wonder if it is actually working as intended.

Yup it does and yup it is :slight_smile:

Sif is a better option than Elena as her damage reduction offers a fail-safe if the flesh wound doesn’t trigger.

I stand corrected, then.

It’s definitely nice that the damage reduction happens after the riposte with Sif. Having two utility heroes while none of them are healers is not quite my style of play, but definitely something to ponder. Elena does have the color stacking advantage when combined with BK, and she deals damage, so that combination would have my preference (theoretically).

You are right that it offers several options, all with pro & cons, depending on your playstyle.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of slow mana heroes. Sif being an average mana hero, meaning she can be charged in 9 tiles with proper mana troop if remember correctly.
Also she has the mana generation bonus, speeding the things after the first use of her special. Can definitely be a “fun” way to play in offense, not by attacking directly but throwing tiles and counter-attacking!

Wow I don’t have bk but I will say sif and qoh is an awesome combination :slight_smile: gonna have fun with this

I’ve added Sif’s damage reduction buff to the Status effects guide:

Note that this buff can be pierced by rangers :bow_and_arrow:

So my new def is almost maxed and now I got Sif…what shall I do with her :thinking:
Atm I’m running MN - BK - Ursena - Drake - Vela. Maybe Drake out for her, but then there won’t be that synergy with BK…
I have some time to think about, once my second set of 5* is maxed, the 4* and costumes are the next in order.

Oh Rogue. I only have Scarlett and Kelile and many Rogue emblems. And Margaret 1/1 🤷
