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 25.1% chance of summoning Sir Lancelot.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 50 times out of 100, you’ll get Sir Lancelot by pull 24 (6,400 gems)
  • 94 times out of 100, you’ll get Sir Lancelot by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Sir Lancelot by pull 160 (41,600 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 50 out of every 100 people won’t get Sir Lancelot by the 24th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 24 times, 500,000 of those players wouldn’t get Sir Lancelot

  • 6 out of every 100 people won’t get Sir Lancelot by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 60,000 of those players wouldn’t get Sir Lancelot

  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Sir Lancelot by the 160th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 160 times, 10,000 of those players wouldn’t get Sir Lancelot

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:

Wow, nobody has spoken about him? LOL.

I just drew him and was wondering what are people’s thoughts on him for those who have used him.


I got 2 last time around, he’s…ok… there are certainly better 4* red options, depends on your roster but sadly I rarely use mine


I pulled him and my 2nd Noor. I didn’t have him, so that’s cool, but he seems kinda “meh”. If he was fast instead of average, I’d be more likely to use him. YMMV.

@Guvnor The poll question about special skill has a cut and paste Merlin instead of Prancealot.

I pulled Lancelot last time Knights of Avalon was here and I’m wondering: with his low defence stat of 533, which emblem path would you follow? He has a high attack stat of 756 but, with 533 D, he’s not gonna last long.

So, even though he’s an attacker, would you go defense? :thinking: These numbers confuse me. :hushed: If someone could show their emblem path, it sure would help.

He does not deserve for emblem.
Just max him and put him to Fire stack offense team.
He is a member of 4-1 Fire attack team against Telluria.
Have 2 good sniper beside him and let Lancelot boost up your sniper will faster mana generation and increase attack stats.

For 4* fighter emblem, I would rather give emblems to Boldtusk… he will be benefit from costume too.

I’m working on him now, but somewhat doubt I’ll give him blades. I already have BT at +20 and the two just seem so redundant. I suppose he’d be better than BT for lower tiers of events, but I always need a healer after level 10. Soooo, titans? When do folks prefer him over BT? Soon he’ll be competing with Reuben for materials…

In addition to Challenge Events, he’s a useful counter to attack debuffs during Bloody Battle Raid Tournaments, where BT’s healing is wasted.

But I agree, he’s a bit niche overall, BT would be my recommended priority until someone had sufficient bench depth to entertain expanding their options.

They have different uses and roles to perform. Boldtusk is relied upon on his healing since he is one of the beefiest 4* heroes, so he doesnt die easily. That bulky defense is what makes him valuable so much because of the needed healing and attack buff. Best accompanied by Wilbur and Falcon since they all have the same mana speed, you need 2 more heroes that ideally can make the most damage out of the enemy heroes. Sir Lancelot cannot provide that since he only hits one and that one single damage is being divided to all remaining enemy heroes due to the damage sharing skill caused by Wilbur. These 2 slots are better reserved to other heroes that deal massive AOE damage, i.e. Colen, Sumle, etc. since each is hit and each hit is divided equally to all. Oh, I forgot, this is best applied when using monoattacks.

But for other attack set ups, I believe Sir Lancelot has a place in them. He may be sandwiched by heroes that have slow regenerating mana as they will benefit from Lance’s faster mana regen skill.
