:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:

Or: How many summons are needed to get a HOTM?

_Special thanks to @Garanwyn & @zephyr1 for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.

It’s important to remember that HOTM have very low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a HOTM.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 12.3% chance of summoning the HOTM.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 73 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 229
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 352

Putting that in Perspective

  • 27 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 270,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 229th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 229 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

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.

Still unsure about this hero. Not the best, not the worst. Perhaps when i see more reviews, I’ll ascend her. I’ll still take her to 3.70 though

Maybe my roster is good enough not to like this hotm… But man… It feels like you have to have a very specific need to want her popping up. I’d seriously consider soul exchanging her…

Weak for april 2022 standards. Tested her in beta and the best thing she could do is summon minions for mr. pengui.

Eh. I am not quite sure, where she will ‘fit’. Time will tell. And maybe her art will look so fantastic, that I won´t care one bit! :smile:

I never thought I’d see 30% of folks say a hero doing -34% defense to 3 is completely broken (underpowered). Only ten folks have voted so we’ll see where it goes.

@PlayForFun i like the addition of the limit break question. Would it be worth a “best emblem path question”? That seems to be a common question for every hero.

17 Likes

Good idea. I have added a question for that too. Is it looks good ?

@Dudeious.Maximus suggested this to me earlier.
This is the first hero card, where I have added it, but if the community likes it, then I will add this for the upcoming new heroes and costumes.

Spoiler: She looks a lot like Telluria. :slight_smile: It´s a pretty card.

Compared to the likes of Morel she is complete garbage.

Well yeah, but is that the comparison we’re making? Unless you’re a top hero you’re complete garbage?

I never get these hyperbolic comparisons.

Well she does a number of things but none very well. Sure, the defence down is nice. But at average speed the damage simply isn’t high enough to be significant. Plus with all the ailment blockers/resisters/withstanders out there the def down might not even be delivered. And from experience dealing with Telluria’s minions those 9%hp minions might as well not even be there at all. It says it all really when a 4* in Marcel is arguably better - higher damage output to three targets, same defense debuffs, and chance of a powerful attack buff for all allies. Even a nice family bonus/ passive on him too. The best thing about Silvaria imo is the beefy minion she summons as a passive, but even that relies on burn DoTs to be inflicted, which itself will cook the minion anyway. Just my thoughts

Seems like a weak devana

I will not chase her, and I don’t think I can get 1 with my luck anyway. But if she happen to appear in my summon, I’ll take her, but max her is another story because I have limited tonic.

Same, not going to chase and if I end up with her I’m not going to waste time or energy on her. There are plenty of better heroes out there. And I don’t want to waste mats on a below average hero.

I hope I get her. She will be replacing Buddy in my team for blue titans. Her defense down skill is very valuable !

The first HOTM I have seen in probably a year where I can see almost no value in. I want her for completeness but I would never level her in her current form. The hit is weak and the minions are worse than no minions because are so weak but they have a chance of replacing some strong/useful minions. Hard pass.

Edit: The hit is not that weak, it will end up being sniper strong because the defense down comes first. Makes her slightly more interesting. But I HATE those minions

Maybe because the damage is only on one target, not even minor damage to nearbies.

Mostly agree, but that forest guardian minion could be interesting, especially against red titan when you cleanse right after.

Pulled her with my second EHT. Doubt she will even see any feeders let alone get anywhere near any tonics.
