Or: How many summons are needed to get a Valhalla Featured Legendary Hero?

Below odds are current as of June 30, 2020. Odds will change as additional S3 5* heroes are added to the “non-featured” hero pool.

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 1.43% chance of summoning Skadi.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 13 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 100
  • 51 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 500
  • 76 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 1500
  • 89 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 1500
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 2073
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Skadi by pull 3186

Putting that in Perspective

  • 87 out of every 100 people won’t get Skadi by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 870,000 of those players wouldn’t get Skadi

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Skadi by the 2073rd pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 2073 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get Skadi

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:

Is he better than Vela?

I have to admit, I am really liking his two stack abilities.
Especially Minions being such a pain, adding an extra 30 damage per minion and 6% mana per, will be fantastic, or potentially.

Depends what at…

At flanking Telluria on Defence? Probably Not.

On offence against a Red Titan? Definitely not.

On offence against a minion heavy team (e.g. Telluria)? Probably… but you would be taking her in as a Weak Colour vs. tank

On offence against any other defence team which ISN’T minion heavy? Probably Not…


The biggest difference for me is that:

  1. Average Speed vs. Fast Speed

  2. Full impact needs dead enemies/ minions

after seeing all these interpretations of her, I dislike her even more. I wasn’t impressed with artwork in beta and now I’ve seen these, well I do not want to offend anyone with me views.

And about gameplay? How does her special work exactly? It isn’t so clear by special description… Thanks! @Grumpigamer

If you kill 5 Minions with the attack, every Enemy receives 150 Damage per Turn.
And because it’s a stack, it doesn’t expire (like regular skills).
So, the damage is applied until the heros are dead or the battle is over?

Do I understand that correctly?

That may seem just a little overpowered for my taste…

It all depends on one thing: the stack is on skadi or on enemies? If on enemies it’s quite useless, if on skadi she is a beast in events and map stages

Her stack mana regenerate reduce will be great problem. Even bigger than Tella. Another op hero.

Only if you have Minions (like telluria’s defense)

Just tried it on 1-1 …I think there’s a bug…no stacking at all…no changes before or after her SS

I think so too. I just tried her a few times and no stacks.

Same here. I have got a stack to happen but only if you kill an enemy with her special. I hope this is a bug and not intended because with her pathetic 135% damage it will only just about kill a minion… also the stack is on the enemy not skadi so will reset after every wave if doing map stages… doesn’t look good!

Ohh, I think that’s not bug. I misunderstood her skill. With this mechanics it’s not imbalanced. But better don’t take cards with minions against her)
